Re: What do you not like about Cinnamon?

Here is why I opted for MATE instead of Cinnamon: Cinnamon menu is slow, and Cinnamon in general feels slower than MATE. I can add applets like hardware temp and weather in seconds to MATE, not a noob easy task in Cinnamon. Overall Cinnamon feels like it has a long way to go just to catch up to a m...

Re: Please Change Boot Splash - Grub Menu - Better Options

I know that the Ubuntu approach to this boot process is that it's suppose to be so much faster, this is why it's black, but the truth is the bootup isn't always that fast and sitting looking at nothing but black is not exactly a great way for a bootup process to look... The inexperienced who don't ...

Re: managing workspaces in unity / cinnamon

hi, :D cinnamon is great! tried it, seems like the perfect balance now. modern traditional menu (much sleeker than mint 11) and hot corner ! perfect so far, will play around with some settings but one thing concerns me.. i do want mint to be different from ubuntu but i would never want it to stray a...

Re: managing workspaces in unity / cinnamon

The figure 8 thing is a feature of Gnome Shell, not Unity. I think it is called the Activities button, and it takes you to the full screen Activities Overview (just as moving your mouse to the upper-left screen corner does). This is not present on Cinnamon, where instead the upper-left screen corne...

Re: managing workspaces in unity / cinnamon

Suggestions for Unity you would better submit to the Ubuntu brainstorm (http://brainstorm.ubuntu.com/) I think. Unity is not developed by Linux Mint and it is unlikely that there will be an official Linux Mint Unity edition. As for your Cinnamon remark, with the Cinnamon Settings you can configure ...

please allow for xbmc to launch as an 'application' properly

bit of background: when playing with xbmc you usually have to swap between the desktop and google quite a lot to get updates , programs, skins, plugins and shares working. XBMC is a highly configurable and personal setup to get your home media interface just how you want it. everytime i launch XBMC ...

hi, Im not sure what its called but the figure of 8 icon at the top of the screen is really good ! at first i didnt like the mint 12 layout as it didnt seem to make sense to have the 'menu' bar at the bottom as well as the unity? top bar.. so i removed the bottom bar and i think its pretty good as i...

Re: some basic XBMC help please :(

dont you think there should be an option to not force you to have to logon? the whole thing seems bizarre to me! its XBMCbuntu in reverse, where you have to log into your machine to logout to log in again to use xbmc all in the aid of making xbmc a front end application which in actual fact is broke...
