About Linux, Mint and OpenBox

Ok, this one is about Linux's levels of clearance, since it hasn't gotten really clear for me: I know that there are, at least three degrees of privileges (Administrative Account, User Account and Root), but I don't know what the difference is; I want to know this because I have been told it is unsa...

About Linux, Mint and OpenBox

Indeed, it solved my Network problem, thank you Sagir. You were right about GNOME/OpenBox, I had been experiencing problems myself; I'm just kind of curious about Linux (I guess that and breaking machines is what teaches you the best), and was looking forward to know what that weird Mixture was (Hea...

About Linux, Mint and OpenBox

Ok, first of all, thanks to all of you for your answers, they have been really helpful and have cleared some of my doubts; now, @sagirfahmid, thanks for the login script for OpenBox, it is useful and got my OpenBox session to work; the problem is that it is running both on Gnome and Xfce as well, so...

Printing over the air

Hello, guys, sorry I haven't been around, I had been very busy. The problem is not solved regarding Samba, but it doesn't matter anymore; due to one of those unexpected turns on life, I do not own a Windows machine or a Printer anymore. Sad way for this topic to end, actually, but there's nothing le...

Boot problem, Mint Doesn't recegnize Disk Drive

I don't know what happened, but I'm starting to think it was actually an overheating problem, since the message disappeared like it had never been there and the PC doesn't fail like that unless it has been a serious amount of time running. I don't think the answer that Beardedragon posted, since I d...

Time settings Problem

Thanks for your replies, and sorry if it took me long to go back to this topic, I was stuck in college for final exams :shock:. However, I am back on my Linux Machine now, and it indeed worked; I had to install time-admin, as DataMan said, but I got it to go default, since the location button DID sh...

@richyrich Thank you, it was indeed what I needed, a "Minty" LXDE at the tip of my fingers; I will mark the post as solved. Thank you :) @sagirfahmid3 Sadly enough, I have to reply; I'm having problems whit the OpenBox session Internet connection as well; the same thing that happened with LXDE, (its...

[SOLVED] About Linux, Mint and OpenBox

Helllo, forum fellas, I have a few newbie doubts and problems that I would like to post. I think I'll start with the basics, and that is Linux's levels of clearance (Desktop User, Administrator, Root). What are they? What is the difference? I've heard people say that it is unsafe to use the Root acc...

Making LXDE more Minty

Indeed, I am very interested in using that sort of OpenBox; it is beautiful, my friend (seriously, you did a good job in its customization), and, even though I'll probably end up changing it a little bit, I wouldn't mind at all using it for life :mrgreen:. Anyway, I indeed am interested, OpenBox is ...

Nahh, its cool lol. Anyway, if you want to you can replace the lxpanel with the gnome panel. Reply back if interested. If yes, then replace the line that says @lxpanel with @gnome-panel. There is only one issue though--the quit button in gnome-panel wont work with lxde. You have to manually create ...

[SOLVED] Making LXDE more Minty

Hello, forum fellas, I recently installed LXDE via the Package manager, and I like it because of the times I have to do heavy tasking, when Gnome becomes practically unresponsive. the only problem I have is making it more like Mint (it has the default LXDE theme, icons and wallpaper). Now, I know th...

Mint LXDE internet connexion problem

Sorry for the last comment, I spoke early. I did do as sagirfahmid3 said, but the applet didn't show up, so I posted it; later, I signed into the LXDE account and realized, not only that the applet in fact was there, but also that Mint had connected to my Wifi network. Thank you, you were very helpf...

Mint LXDE internet connexion problem

That is precisely the point, I Don't have that applet, it just doesn't show up. I know that it is not as easy as a "Would you like to connect to...?" dialog, but I alvready knew about that applet, it's just that it doesn't show up. Now, how do I add it, since it is necessary to connect. My panel doe...

Mint LXDE internet connexion problem

No, it doesn't help. Maybe I didn't explain myself correctly (if I indeed didn't, excuse my newbieness). I can't connect to wireless, but only when I run LXDE; it doesn's seem to have a network manager, so I don't get prompts about a wireless network close, the question is: How do I tell it to conec...

[SOLVED] Mint LXDE internet connexion problem

Ok, this is a very weird thing: I am running Mint 11 whit Gnome desktop enviroment, but, since my PC isn't that powerful, I decided to install the packages from synaptic that allow me to run LXDE (doesn't look like Mint, though).

[SOLVED] Time settings Problem

Ok, probably one of my Newbiest posts, but it has to be done: I have a problem whit the system time and date, not related to the "BIOS" time and date, since I think Mint doesn't get its system time from the BIOS time (correct me if I'm wrong), but I think it might be because of the time settings I s...

Password Compression in Mint

Yes, it is very troublesome, since if you make one tiny mistake on the process of writing the password you wont realise it, and then, if you want to decompress it, you'll have to try every possible keystroke combination that could have gone wrong (or simply use a brute force-method script, which is ...

Password Compression in Mint

Awesome Tool, but is doesn't seem to be what I was looking for; the compression algorithm is very capable, and seems more than just fairly safe, the thing is that it's syntax is very complex, and (even though I love the fact that it's harder to violate) for the kind of tasks I'm currently doing it s...
