Re: What is happening to MInt

Can anyone please suggest a linux that is not going to be using Gnome 3?. I sympathize with what you say. Personally, I am going to stick with Mint 9 until its end of life because I am very happy with it. To answer your question I suggest you look at CentOS http://www.centos.org/ . The latest versi...

Re: Chromium and Chrome: Web browser, or spyware?

My understanding is that Chromium does not contain the RLZ tracking software found in Google Chrome.

This contradicts the statement quoted above from the Iron developers.

Re: Ubuntu 12.04 LTS Desktop To Be Supported for Five Years

Will the next LTS Desktop version of Mint follow Ubuntu with support for five years? I hope so. Guaranteed Gnome 2 for five years would be great. :) Why do you GNOME2 will be in use in April? Did someone say that somewhere? I'm just waiting for Mint 12 myself. I have so many problems with the curre...

Re: Tilde ~ does not appear correctly in posts

Beardedragon: I assumed it was a forum issue because a tilde appears ( in Firefox and Opera) correctly on the forum index page for me but incorrectly as "-" in the post. In your post which quotes my original post the tilde appears correctly!

Re: How to make Opera the default browser?

I don't understand why Opera does not appeared in Preferred Applications if it is installed correctly. This may be a workaround. The setting is in ~/.gconf/desktop/gnome/url-handlers/http/%gconf.xml Note the stringvalue. I have Opera set as default browser and here is mine: <?xml version="1.0&q...

Re: Opera font problem

I use Chromium as my main browser, but I need to use Opera for some work stuff. I have updated to the newest version with the .deb package (I think it's 11.5). I was having the same problem with the older version so I tried to upgrade, but it didn't fix it. Anyway, on some sites the fonts don't loo...

Re: Installing Opera

Mauro, If you want Update Manager to pick up the latest versions of Opera you must add the Opera repository to Software Sources>Other Software. This is the entry in my Mint: Opera Browser (final releases) (http://deb.opera.com/opera/stable) You also need the Opera Software Signing Key to authenticat...

Re: I can not update now

It looks like you are missing the keyrings required for the additional repositories which show in the error messages. The software sources probably include lots of unnecessary stuff, particularly for a newbie! You can track down and then add the relevant keyrings or delete the repositories in Softwa...

Triple boot: Vista/WUBI Ubuntu/ mint4win Mint [solved]

I have a WUBI install of Ubuntu 10.04 within Windows. I would like to add a mint4win install of Mint 9.
Is this possible? Has anyone done it? My WUBI Ubuntu uses legacy grub which I prefer to grub2.
