Re: Hey there! First question...Error with update manager

Well hello and welcome to Linux Mint :) My first advice would be "don't install Katya (Mint 11)"; it is still good and everything, but it will run out of support in october and you will have neither updates nor packages (think of it as installing Windows ME). I am not sure why you picked up Katya bu...

Re: Prefer Gnome Classic, how to uninstall other options

If I find that Mate works out ok for me, would it then be possible to keep Mate and get rid of gnome altogether? Well of course! it si just another DE, no big deal. MATE and Gnome Shell are completely undependant from each other, so they'll most likely can live separately as easily as they coexist;...

Add option to Lisa to enable fortunes in terminal

Well, the problem can be solved by editing those settings with Gconf and the installing the package "fortunes" (which I wrongly assumed to be installed because of the "Husse Fortunes"). Still, I agree with the over-engeneering, this should be easier to do.

Really? Then forgive my ignorance; I'm pretty new at editing css files and didn't know that; since it is an accepted convention I will complain no more. You win :)

Sorry didn't see this post or I would have helped.

Nice Wallpaper! Although I concur with the fact that it is in no way a clean wallpaper, you have done a great work making it. Love it, can't really say much more. Good work. Cheers. Danko.

Nope, it seems very alike (and is a battery percentage problem as well) but the difference is in the fact that my battery does dye as fast as it claims even though it isn't damaged (as I said, my battery works fine in Windows or a Live-USB Linux, but dyes on me faster than ever when I'm using one of...

Re: graphics

Well, my first suggestion would be dump KDE :lol: Nah, seriously, you don't have to dump it, but it *is* a KDE problem; it is because of the QT underlying technologies that power up KDE; Those make it incompatible (well, sort of) with Gnome and it's GTK based core. The incompatibility is not quite a...
