Re: Opinion bout 12RC @omgubuntu

I think the hate towards MGSE comes mainly from traditional desktop Mint users. Gnome 3 or Gnome Shell is not Mint's invention, though, and the hate should be directed at Gnome. It would still be pointless and somewhat immature, but at least aimed in the right direction.

Re: Mint12 A few issues:missing programs/editing bars?

1. Missing programs/menu? I noticed on the new menu there is no 'administrator' section. This was where Compiz usually was as well as some other options in 11. I thought at first that maybe Compiz just wasnt installed. I used the Software Manager and it had a check, but just to be safe i uninstalle...

Re: Get classic Mint desktop in Gnome shell

It's not yet as flexible, customizable or stable as the good old gnome-panel desktop, but give it some time - it's still early days for gnome-shell and Gnome 3. And to have something about correct and usable, you need to do a lot of work, use several extensions etc just because the base product is ...

Re: Get classic Mint desktop in Gnome shell

So is there an easy way to get rid of those hot corners in MGSE? I'm having flashbacks of that Unity bar jumping out at me every time I get the cursor too deep in those corners. Top left hot corner disabled if that's not included in esteban's fix: sudo gedit /usr/share/gnome-shell/js/ui/layout.js A...

Re: Get classic Mint desktop in Gnome shell

I do, however, have some issues. The gnome shell reflection extension moves the top panel down but also moves the bottom notification panel to the top. This would be fine if it stayed auto-hidden but when I use the notification extension to put my systray icons on the newly moved bottom panel, the ...

Re: Mint 12 ubuntu tweak

If you read the first post, he was not complaining that he couldn't install Ubuntu Tweak (... "I have installed Ubuntu tweak successfully" ...), he was complaining that installing applications with it doesn't work - and it doesn't for me either.

Re: Opinion bout 12RC @omgubuntu

I think a valid point he has in all the unqualified ranting is concerning the icons and the theme, the overall look. The first thing I did installing Mint was pretty much change its appearance completely. It's just not an attractive looking distro if you care about design and looks - but it's what's...

Re: Get classic Mint desktop in Gnome shell

Well done! I have no doubt that Linux Mint will take up many of these additions and incorporate them into MGSE. A few notes: There was an update to MGSE yesterday. I think that the move calendar extension may not be needed now. If you want to use the mint menu for applications but don't like the "l...

Re: Get classic Mint desktop in Gnome shell

How about functionality? Did you have to create launchers or were you able to drag/drop from Nautilus? Just wondering how easy the setup is because installing Mint and changing to that setup appears simple, but I wonder if it takes a great deal of time? If the OP can post some "how to" info to get ...

Re: Get classic Mint desktop in Gnome shell

How do you go about enabling/disabling these extensions, I can't find them anywhere. Shell extensions are handled with Advanced Settings (aka Gnome Tweak Tool). The Window List extension is installed and enabled by default in 12 RC. Applications Menu, Move Clock and Panel Favourites extensions can ...

Re: LM 12 move top bar to bottom

Got it working - move the downloaded "gnome-shell-reflection@emergya.com" folder to /usr/share/gnome-shell/extensions/ (not the .local... folder as mentioned on the website, because then your shell starts to act funny whenever you're in root mode), reload the shell or log out and in, and then the ex...

Get classic Mint desktop in Gnome shell

Due to the amount of people going into hissy fits over the new 12RC gnome shell interface I thought I owed the human race and the internet to at least try to in advance appease some of the rage bound to hit this place when the final release is out. The screenshot below is Gnome shell, with an applic...

Re: System toolbar - how to remove?

If you write the command "gksu nautilus" in a terminal, nautilus should open a root session where you can edit files in the file system folder as you please. If that's not the case for you, I'm afraid I have no idea what's wrong. Try this command to open the file directly as root sudo gedit /etc/apt...

Re: Mint 12 ubuntu tweak

0.5 probably won't work because it's designed for Ubuntu 11.04 running Gnome 2, and 0.6 is still in alpha.
