Re: Why did you switch to linux mint?

I switched to Linux mint this round for one reason.

Ubuntu made me do it.

One word sums it all up.

UNITY

Thou, it looks like theemahn will also be striping Unity from UE 3.0.

But at this point, I am just loving mint. I will most likely use both.

Re: Nautilus Side Places menu

That wasnt so hard to recreate. You created custom icons and launchers for nautilus. Updated your system and poof. usr/share/nautilus/ui/nautilus-navigation-window-ui.xml Replace with this one. nautilus-navigation-window-ui.xml.tar.gz Make sure permissions are set right and restart. Easy fix.

Re: You can't deny that Mint 11 looks horribly dated now

I love it when people complain about something that cost them ZERO. Download whatever you want on your computer and customize it to your "standards" and let the rest of us be TOTALLY happy/content with the direction of Mint. In my opinion, Mint 11 is the best yet. It is so user friendly and it work...

Also very glad yall stuck with classic for now.

Gnome 3 will come in time.

With any luck Unity will die like the bad idea it is.

Re: To dumb to help myself, please assist

like I said, select recovery option via grub at boot.

Hold shift as you boot to get grub to show up.

Then boot via safe graphics mode.

Clearly a nvidia driver was installed, but lacked support for your card.

answer 1

Guessing it is a black screen with login ?

If so, often due to graphics failure.

Simple option is to boot to recovery , safe graphics mode. Install the right drivers.

Well, at least thats what I always do. There are other options I am sure others will offer you.

Re: Mint 11 INstall issue - no boot splash...

Improved boot times, that and natty has a habit of not always working with boot splashes on some systems.

Easy to understand why.

Boot splash works great of 3 of my 4 systems, but one of them it works fine on shutting down but not so well starting up.

Common issue.
