Indicator Applet not working

I was suprised to see indicator-applet in LMDE's repositories because it's an Ubuntu product. Actually it's an Ubuntu product which I quite like so I installed it. Unfortunately it seems it doesn't work though. When I click on it (the message indicator) nothing happens. Have any of you guys tried it...

Re: ubuntu tweek...

Yes, that would be great!

Control Centre is not the same, it can't do many tweaks that Ubuntu Tweak can.

BTW you should try Bleachbit as well, it's on LMDE's repo. It's something like CCleaner for Windows. :)

Re: Trying Mint 10?

Just like the majority of you guys I won't switch from LMDE either. It just works for me so good and it's a rolling release so I'll still taste Mint's new features (I'll get those even sooner). :) I think if LMDE continuous to be so good and stable after Squeeze is released than this should be the m...

Re: VLC not working properly in LMDE

Unfortunately VLC doesn't work the same as it did in the Ubuntu based one for me neither. I have problems with .mkv videos. It plays the video OK but every time I try to forward it it doesn't get the place where I want but half an hour earlier - if you know what I mean. So I want to forward it to 1...

Re: Linux Mint 10 to use Faenza icon set?

Oh I just realised that there's a Mint-x icon set and also a Mint-x theme in LMDE's repository. mint-x-icons, mint-x-theme: A mint/metal theme based on mintified versions of Clearlooks Revamp, Elementary and Faenza. It looks quite good actually. ;) (although I think they should change the network ic...

Re: Lost icons in mintMenu after update

It works for me now, too.

I just didn't like the new icon so I changed it back to mintMenu.png. :) I like the Mint branding and I didn't see the point of the new one.

Linux Mint 10 to use Faenza icon set?

Read the article @ OMG! Ubuntu! http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2010/09/linu ... -icon-set/

I'm personally happy that the devs thinking about it because I use Faenza at the moment. :)

Yes, as you can read it in the end of my post I also tried that and it fixed the problem, although it made the fonts huge.

Re: Linux Mint Blog

It is so nice to hear the creator of Mint talking about what is good for us users rather than what is good for "the company". Exactly! This is one of the main reasons I switched to Mint. Although it's also good for them if it's good for us. :) But frankly they seem to care about us, about what we s...

Re: skinable menu

Woah, I just realised that it's already skinnable. You can use the system's themes.

Just right click on mintMenu -> Settings -> Theme.

Great feature, thank you! ;)
