Re: Making XFCE closer to gnome 2.32

@wyrdoak What do your window decorations look like? I've been playing with Compiz on Mint 12 / Xubuntu 11.10, but I can't get Compiz to respect xfwm4's window decoration settings. It keeps trying to use the GNOME (Metacity) window decoration.

Re: my system froze AGAIN

Might be a problem with Flash. Flash is very good at crashing Linux. It even crashes Firefox on Windows.

As a temporary workaround, you might want to use the FlashBlock add-on to prevent problematic Flash videos from loading. You can whitelist any site where you really need Flash.

Re: UEFI secure booting and the future

Linuxers are probably being a little too paranoid about this. Most "enthusiast" motherboards from Asus, Gigabyte, MSI, etc. will probably provide a very easy way to disable secure booting in the BIOS. The Linux userbase may be small, but we comprise a relatively large portion of the "enthusiast" com...

I know. But Firefox, not Iceweasel, is LMDE's default browser. The default browser needs more love.

Just out of curiosity: Has anyone tried grabbing the source code of the Main Edition's Firefox and compiling it on LMDE? Does it work?

Re: Firefox Ugly fonts

Font choices and themes are very personal choices I actually think its quite objective that its "proper" to have firefox use the same font rendering as the rest of the system. This is how it is in most distros. I agree with @bwat47. Firefox should follow the font rendering used by the rest of the s...

Re: Tor en Linux Mint

Tor works fine on Linux Mint, and I use it regularly. But it's not in the official repositories. See here for installation instructions: https://www.torproject.org/docs/debian.html.en It's also very important to install Polipo properly: https://www.torproject.org/docs/tor-doc-unix.html.en#polipo Tor...

Re: LMDE fonts bad visualization

You can reinstall any package by doing sudo apt-get install --reinstall <package-name> An easy way to find a package's exact name is to search it in Synaptic Package Manager. But if the same problem happens in a lot of fonts, reinstalling specific fonts would not help. Something else must be wrong.....

Re: LMDE fonts bad visualization

It looks like something is wrong with the "s" glyph in the non-bold version of your font. Which font is that, FreeSans? The font file might be corrupt, so try removing and reinstalling the relevant font package. (I think it's called "freefonts" or something.) Maybe try Liberation Sans, too. Other th...

Re: make a free Linux Proxy software

Sorry. Tor is not easy to use because you need to configure it and you cannot watch YouTube videos with it. Think about the simple linux users. UltraSurf is easy to use: just double-click it and it works. You're right... neither Tor nor SSH tunnel plays nice with Flash apps. Also, Ubuntu removed To...

Re: make a free Linux Proxy software

For Linux (as well as most other operating systems, including Windows), there's TOR . It's completely open source, it can be easily installed on Ubuntu and Linux Mint, it has an impeccable security record, and it's considered much more trustworthy than any commercial proxy company. If for some reaso...

mintMenu in Mint 11 RC - Can't change favorites icon size

Hi, I'm test driving Mint 11 RC, and found a little glitch in mintMenu. I prefer the icons in the Favorites panel to be slightly smaller (36px), so that I can fit more programs in there. This works flawlessly in Mint 10. In Mint 11 RC, every time I try to change the icon size, it reverts to the defa...

I had already tried the apt-key --recv-keys thing, and it didn't work. Also, the second solution linked to from that thread is also a broken link.
