Re: Linux Mint Xfce (201104) released!

Because Debian have included that version in their testing repository. Xfce 4.8 is in Sid at the moment, you need some patience before Debian Testing will get this version. Right, but this isn't Debian. This is Mint Debian. I'm just curious as to why Mint (Clem) didn't opt for the more recent versi...

Re: Linux Mint Xfce (201104) released!

Sorry if this question has already been asked: But why XFCE 2.6 rather than 2.8?

Re: Limited to 2 Workspaces using Compiz/XFCE

Thanks. I just switched to AWN to see if there was a difference. Same issue. Can't open an app unless it's in the current workspace. Probably AWN & Docky looking in the wrong place (Gnome based) - but sorting this out is beyond my ken.

Re: Limited to 2 Workspaces using Compiz/XFCE

Thankyou. You know... I looked, but didn't look deeply enough.

Now if I could just get Docky to register the workspaces. Clicking on an active app only works if the app is in the current workspace.

Re: Linux Mint Xfce (201104) released!

I'm connected to my DSL modem wirelessly (XFCE Debian) - of no help to you. You've probably considered firewall issues? - either in the OS or in the modem? And DHCP settings? Though I can't fathom how that would change between OS's.

Re: Emerald & Firefox 4 on XFCE Debian

Thanks. I've got FF4 installed alongside FF3.6 - using profiles with both. (Having two versions is useful to me.) Oddly (and unlike Ubuntu) the profile which is *not* the default asks me to confirm which profile I want to use even though I've check the "Don't ask at Startup" checkbox. I'm wondering ...

Limited to 2 Workspaces using Compiz/XFCE

Currently, and after installing COMPIZ, I find I'm limited to two workspaces. If I click on the workspaces app (under XFCE control center) I can't make any changes. Is there a setting in Compiz that has taken this over? Or am I dealing with a bug? I seem to remember, way back when I tried Mint Debia...

Re: Linux Mint Xfce (201104) released!

My experience installing XFCE Debian has been good... both times. Borked the system the first time. Installed Compiz & Emerald. I notice that I can no longer add or remove Workspaces (having handed control to Copmiz)? Am limited to two. A bug? Other than that, if Gnome 3 & Unity continue with their ...

Emerald & Firefox 4 on XFCE Debian

Hi Folks, this might not be the right forum in which to post these questions. Move it if it's not. I've installed XFCE Debian and I'd like to transition to this as my main Distro. I've been using Ubuntu for a couple of years and I'm not liking Gnome 3, Unity (ask if you want) or the release schedule...

Only 1 Workspace in LMDE?

Working with LMDE. Compiz is up and running, but now I only have 1 workspace? If I add the workspace switcher to the panel, I see four workspaces but clicking on any of them does nothing. Cntrl-Alt-Arrow-Key also does nothing. I don't know if the installation of compiz has anything to do with it? An...

Restoring LMDE's GDM3 Background?

Hi Folks, I guess I know just enough about Linux to be dangerous. When I installed LMDE and updated the software, I unthinkingly allowed the upgrade to replace LMDE's GDM3. So, I now get the standard Debian (blue) background when logging in. Not a big deal; but how do I restore LMDE's GDM background...

[Solved] Changing themes (or theme managers) on KDE 4.4?

Just installed Linux Mint KDE 8. And I detest all the wIndows themes that KDE offers - all of it, to me, feels like dressed up Windows 3.0. I also detest the blue colors (liked minty green), and KDE's battleship gray is really getting me down. But that's just me. I'd love to get some Aero Themes ins...

Interesting. What browser (release) and what version of Flash are you using? (Both my systems are 32 bit systems by the way)

Re: Daily Show crashes *all* browsers in Mint/Ubuntu...

Just a (further) thought! You have obviously heavily modified your installation. Have you tried watching the daily show on an un-modified system such as the livecd? "Heavily" is an overstatement. All I did was to upgrade Firefox to 3.6 and update Flash. The whole reason I did so was because the out...

Yeah... comedy central. It destroys all my browsers on Linux. Crashes them. Locks 'em up.

Re: Daily Show crashes *all* browsers in Mint/Ubuntu...

Not all are from the US, so not all would know, or understand the show/stream in question causing the issue. Does this occur on this site only, or others as well? Is your system completely up to date? Have you tried other browsers, not just Firefox? So far, it only occurs with Daily Show Videos. Th...

Daily Show crashes *all* browsers in Mint/Ubuntu...

Just wondering if others are having this issue? I've tried running Flash 10.1Beta. Daily Show will play, for about a minute, then Firefox will just vanish. 10.1 is also very crash prone (within the one minute mark) when playing at a site like Hulu. If I use Flash 10.0.X, Hulu works, but all and ever...
