Re: Where are cookies stored - User or Root?

Like Pilosopong Tasyo already said ... Imagine it'd be under a user's acct. Errrr ... cookies ... increased security ? Ummm ... eeeeee and ahhhh. Basically think overall cookies and where they're stored is one of the last things you should be concerned with for the sake of security. With that said t...

Re: Can I use Gnome AND LXDE on same hdd?

It's discussing installing lxde on lmde. Much of it applies whatever gnu/nix you're using. Process is mainly the same and straight forward regardless. ie: Search for the packages in repo's ... Whether using software center ( LM etc), synaptic ( or other package manager) or in terminal apt-get ... et...

Re: Unable to Shrink Partition

Sounds like one more great reason not to be a big vista/M$ fan. As if anybody needs anymore of those. :D Have you tried this tool ? LINK ? How to for it, sorta, sure the same applies pretty much to the personal edition I've linked to. Not hard to figure out for sure. I had a good experience with eas...

Re: Mint 12 installed on second hard disk but boots only Win

Hmmmm ... this is a true sherlock holmes mystery going. The game is afoot obviously !!! D: Ok ... way I see things, there's a couple options here. 1. Make sure you've got a good install iso for Mint ready and start at step one of that how to. 2. Sometimes there's no help for it. Something ... just s...

Re: Mint 12 installed on second hard disk but boots only Win

That is a step by step how to ( painfully detailed one imo. ) With screenshots of the installer for dual booting buntu ( or LM, or likely just about any other distro n the world. Would give someone some good idea/tips anyway.) with win7 on a PC with 2 hard drives. Easybcd makes a lot of sense, for m...

Re: Ubuntu feels faster than mint.

You have the same base in Ubuntu 11.10 and Mint 12 but not the same desktop (Unity Vs Gnome 3 + MGSE Vs Mate). If you test the same desktop on both it should be about the same. Mint 12 and Ubuntu 11.10 have the same kernel, there is no difference there. +2 nunol ... That's the obvious difference. I...

Re: Mint 12 installed on second hard disk but boots only Win

See this. Looked like exactly what you need and read through it enough to say I think it's good. While it's using buntu, LM12 is based on buntu, only with whatever Mint software cooked in and likely some of whatever buntu bugs and weirdness canonical tends to create cooked out, lol. Sighs ... I need...

Re: firefox 5 crashes harddisk?

Hey, what do ya know !? Works both ways, though usually from what I've seen in these forums, it's people abandoning buntu and running here to use Mint instead. lol ... Last post for awhile, got stuff to do more important than a forum spree. The issues you were having, apparently kept having sound od...

Re: how to use Wine

I know almost nothing about WINE, know what it is blahblahblah. Not much else, can understand why it's used ( even think it's cool, that opensource devs can do that kind of thing.) To me using windows installed in gnu/nix borders on software sacrilege anyway. Well poss freedos ? or whatever, which I...
