Re: Window Menu breaks Compiz

What happens when you downgrade Compiz? I think the changes are minor. I've not downgraded, because the standard configuration of Compiz (with above fix) works fine for me. The most obvious thing you miss after downgrade is the easy window maximization or half-maximization (when you drag a window t...

Re: Mint 11 wont boot with SSD set to AHCI mode

That is one fast SSD 8) The output shows TRIM support. This will be enabled on both IDE and AHCI. * Data Set Management TRIM supported (limit 1 block) * Deterministic read data after TRIM So you can leave it on IDE. As for Windows 7, well, iirc that may have an issue for you where if you installed W...

Re: Window Menu breaks Compiz

I don't use any Compiz effects other than what Mint 11 has as default. In fact, I turned off "animations" even. I don't like too much bling. I didn't mean to presume, I don't like the bling myself. I added the remark for downgrade of Compiz in case you did want all the crazy effects. Happy to hear ...

Yes. Read this solution: http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=55&t=74327#p444922 That will fix that issue. There is also a know issue with the Cube in Compiz (see Linux Mint 11 release notes). If you are not using it, leave it, else follow this post to downgrade Compiz to a more stable versio...

Re: screen problems after cairo-dock install (opengl?)

Well, you can try at the login screen, when you enter your password, at the bottom in the selection box select "Gnome (no effects)". This starts without Compiz. (It remains in effect until at this screen you make another selection.) See if this helps. If so, you may try the following to reset Compiz...

Re: Partition Problems

Sure, then it looks like you are all set. Use GParted to delete the last two partions, and you can either already setup the new partitions you want or do that from the advanced choice in the installer. My suggestion would be: - Make the third partition a primary partition for / - Make the fourth par...

Re: Remove hedgewars

The /usr/local/share/hedgewars folder is where it was installed by the "sude make install" command. Running the uninstall command from there won't work. From what folder did you run the script? The following line in the script downloads *at that location* the sources from hedgewars and puts it in a ...

Re: Partition Problems

Okay, thanks for that. As suspected the pre-installed Windows is using all four available primary partitions. You need to delete at least one of the last two partitions in order to be able to install *any* other operating system. These last two partitions contain the Windows reinstall data, and the ...

Re: Remove hedgewars

The script first checks a list of packages it needs, and if it finds any missing it installs those. These are installed from the normal repository, and won't hinder you (they will get upgraded if needed, or removed if conflicting with another package). No worries about those. The installation script...

Re: Partition Problems

Hi, probably this is due to pre-installed Windows having claimed 4 primary partitions (which is the maximum allowed). Usually there is a recovery partition you can burn to CD/DVD from Windows, and then delete it here to make room for Linux. To help you on this, we need some more information. Please ...

I think the "mint thing" is there to support the Linux Mint team, as Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.
