Re: Gnome or Unity for Mint 11

I think this answers this question: http://www.muktware.com/n/09/2010/440 Clement Lefebvre, Linux Mint, told Muktware, "We're not planning to switch to Unity but to keep our desktop as similar as it is at the moment. So it's hard to say how we'll achieve this technically but we're aiming at us...

Re: Gnome or Unity for Mint 11

Does anyone know if Mint will be using Gnome 3 when it is released?

Re: Thoughts on the Gnome Shell and Gnome 3.0?

Gnome 3 is only 55% complete! So please remember this! I am using Fedora 14 (just install Autoten for ALL your codecs!) with Gnome 3 right now and I don't see any reason to go back to regular Gnome. I have yet to see Gnome crash and it's FAST! I find it to be very intuitive. It seems to automaticall...

Re: Start the name suggestions for Mint 11

Katrina (and many variants) remind me of Hurricane Katrina which was a horrible disaster for so many people in the United States. I would stay away from that one. Though something tells me people are going to try to brush it off and say that it's a forgotten pastime. It only happened 5 years ago, an...

Re: Really rolling?

Yes, Debian recommends the use of aptitude. On the other hand, Ubuntu is actually planning to remove aptitude from its base system by Ubuntu 11.04, and recommend people to use its Software Centre instead (or Synaptic and apt-get). They are planing to remove Synaptic from Ubuntu 11.4 too... :evil: h...

Re: Disabling scollbars in a browser?

Not 100 pct sure, but since it's KDE there are tons of options available to you. I would try System Settings > Window Behavior and try to create a new window rule regarding the application you are trying to disable scrollbars in. If that doesn't work or is too complicated, I would ask over at the P...

Disabling scollbars in a browser?

I would like to be able to disable scrollbars in a browser because I'm going to make a integrated-like theme on my desktop. I find they take up space and I can get by without them.

Is there a setting or a browser I can use to do this?

Thanks

Follow this guide. It from Ubuntu but it applies to Mint.

Re: Getting wireless to work in KDE

Is there perhaps a place where I can find the SSID information on the gnome OS so I don't have to tamper with the wireless modem?

I have not use Mint 9.But,am sure in the login prompt,you can change the desktop enviroment.Do that and check if Gnome has the same problem. I find that all Gnome OS's work for me on both computers and all KDE's do not. I just tried Opensuse and the same thing. Perhaps I'm not setting the network u...

Re: Getting wireless to work in KDE

Is the SSID for your network hidden? If so, try making it openly visible via the router, and see if you can connect then. After you successfully connect the first time, you can re-hide it, and it should re-connect without issue after that. Joe This netbook (and another one I have) work just fine wh...

Re: New name for 'Linux Mint Debian Edition' / LMDE

Until then, I have a feeling that quite a few people will continue to use the "LMDE" acronym. (Sounds like it's named after an alien? Really?) No. I was thinking of different OS's like Gentoo, Chakra, Pardus, and Aptosid... Then again, at least then didn't name it "Linux/GNU Aptosid ...
