Monthly bandwidth being stolen by aliens!

Dear all, My buddy's Mint 10 computer appears to be slowly chewing through his monthly broadband allowance when he's not looking. He's a complete non-tech computer user, using the internet only for browsing and email, connecting via a cable modem. No matter what I do, there always seems to be some i...

Re: Mint-X-Metal/Shiki-Wise hybrid theme.

Thanks again Gene. I'm at work (and shouldn't be here) so I'll have a crack at that tonight when I get home. I'm about 10 months into Linux but since I'm not retired I haven't been able to put a huge amount of time into it, so I suspect that you've long since overtaken me. But I love it, and I'll ne...

Re: Mint-X-Metal/Shiki-Wise hybrid theme.

Thanks Gene, your advice worked very well! It was all there in front of me; as a Linux newbie (ish) I just had to be pointed in the right direction.

Mint-X-Metal/Shiki-Wise hybrid theme.

I've upgraded to LM10 and I love the icon set that comes with the default X-Metal theme, however I preferred the colours in the old Shiki-Wise theme. Messing around with the colours in the Mint-X-Metal theme has just caused me heaps of frustration. I can't get what I want. Then I thought, it must be...

Re: Disappearing Gnome desktop...

Thank you for your reply. It will be a day or two before I get another chance to look at that computer, but in the meantime, do you have any clues as to what I should look for?

Best regards.

Disappearing Gnome desktop...

Hi folks, Tonight I answered an emergency call from a friend on whose computer I have installed Mint 9. He had lost his Gnome panel and his desktop icons and was staring at a blank Mint background. The mouse pointer was active, but right-clicking had no effect. I played around a bit and found the fo...
