Re: How to install Cinnamon 2.2 on Ubuntu 14.04

I did it, Zorba, following your very clear instructions. Thank you. I've never managed it before without making a mess. I added Cinnamon to Ubuntu Gnome 14.04, which I had on a partition I was planning to wipe anyway, so I figured it was a good time to experiment with this. Cinnamon is working beaut...

Re: Future of Firefox Australis and LinuxMint

I'm happy with 29. It's resolved a scrolling snag I've run into the past few releases, on and off, but particularly this year. It's scrolling smoothly now, so that's good.

go to preferences
default applications for lxsession
autostart
and in the box put: nm-applet
click on: add
Do a restart and it should be in the panel.

Re: Future of Firefox Australis and LinuxMint

Using the Classic Theme Restorer add-on, I got it to look the way I prefer. Firefox Australis certainly operates very well, quick and smooth. I am pleased. :D

Re: 14.04 development

I have 14.04 installed, both Ubuntu and Lubuntu. In both cases, the first install sort of blew up after a big update came down. But I reinstalled using the respective same Iso; and no problems updating or at all with the second installations in the course of this past week. I'm looking forward to Li...

Re: So long Cinnamon! Hello ... Gnome Shell? Unity?

Oh, the Manjaro/Arch based, rolling release edition of Netrunner is really nice and, thank God, easy to install. I just have a few must-haves, like Netflix, Amazon streaming video, Dropbox and Focuswriter to work out before it's perfect, but I'll wait for the 64-bit version to go to the trouble.

Tempting. The guys take their sweet time, but they do such beautiful work. I love Elementary Luna and I expect to love Elementary Freya. Will I wait? Probably not :lol:

Re: having trouble watching yahoo videos with firefox

I haven't seen the issue with Yahoo videos, so I don't know. Your plug-ins look fine. I use Adblock and Noscript with no interference. For Amazon video, aside from the switch in web player, I had used two methods previously: In Terminal: Zombie HAL 1. sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mjblenner/ppa-hal 2....

Re: having trouble watching yahoo videos with firefox

Try changing your web player in Amazon Settings. You probably have it set for Adobe Flash; try changing it to Silverlight. The recent problems cleared up for me with that simple thing. It can't hurt and you can easily change it back.

Re: Amazon Instant Video stopped working

I've had problems for the past few days. I had already done all the hal stuff, so I tried just changing the setting for the web player from Adobe Flash to Silverlight and it worked.

Re: So long Cinnamon! Hello ... Gnome Shell? Unity?

I wouldn't give up Cinnamon, but trying out the 14.04 beta2 of Unity, I find myself liking it a whole lot all of a sudden. It did blow up on me after two days the first time, but I reinstalled and so far it's working very well.
