Re: No Data In Weather Applet

I almost assumed this was a old post
Because
the weather plugin (Xfce panel) works as expected in LMint 15 Xfce version. And I believe it was backported into the LTS version (LMint 13). Try reinstalling the plugin in 'synaptic package-manager! :?

Re: Cant even Start with Linux

Frostwire in LMDE?

Will 'frostwire' become available in LMDE again?
even the on on web doesn't run, and the older versions are discontinued and don't work properly (will install thou) :roll:
I believe it's cause they need a newer 'Java' not yet available in debian.

Thank You

Re: Resizing windows difficult

One way I found to make it easier to resize windows is to use Alt-F8, which snaps the mouse pointer to the resize position in the lower-right corner of the window. Then I can drag and resize the corner of the window. I found this in Settings/Window Manager/Keyboard tab. Thanks thats the one (listed...
