Re: Autohide the Bottom Panel

Yup, if you deactivate bottom panel extension but keep menu extension activated, the menu jumps into the top panel instead.

Re: Vertical Panels in Gnome 3

Thanks for the suggestion. I'm familiar with AWN and Docky. I'd call those docks, rather than panels, in the Gnome sense. I don't really like them. I like the kind of layout and configurability that the Gnome panel (especially as it was in Gnome 2) offered. So I'd simply like to be able to take the...

Re: Linux Mint 12 "Lisa" RC released!

Have you tried logging into a MATE session? That might be the way forward for you and those who share your frustrations about Gnome Shell. It looks and works almost exactly like classic Gnome.

Re: Linux Mint 12 Release Candidate

Nice :) Didn't get any email notifications about your launchpad reply and probably wouldn't have seen it so I'm glad you worked it out. Remains to see if the devs also think icon spacing is too wide in the default shell theme.

Re: Mint Menu Disappeared in Gnome 3

Check if the mint menu extension is still activated. Launch Advanced Settings, under "Shell Extensions", see if "Menu Extension" is turned on (they shouldn't turn themselves off, though). Have you restarted your session or just Gnome shell?

Re: Linux Mint 12 "Lisa" RC released!

Mint 11 was perfect, and at the same time, sexy. Gnome 3 and Unity is the death of me and the Netbook, the fact that I cannot customize the layout as I see fit on minimal desktop real estate is very troubling and annoying. I have no idea what I'm going to do now... where should one turn if the savi...

Super short video of MATE in action for those who haven't installed the LM12RC but are curious about how MATE looks and works: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tNEB-fXBhoc I'm gonna stay with Gnome Shell but MATE is definitely faster, more responsive and without the odd little glitch here and there, a...

I've escaped from 11.10 too - wonder if the best thing that ever happened to Linux Mint was Ubuntu 11.10 :)

Re: Hide Bottom bar Mint 12 RC

Open Advanced Settings (aka Gnome Tweak Tool). In "Shell Extensions", disable the 2 extensions "Window List Extension" and "Bottom Panel Extension" - and you're laughing. If it doesn't disappear right away, log out and in for it take effect.

Re: Unofficial Post Your Linux Mint Desktop Thread

OK, just bear in mind that MATE has a possible future and fallback-session definitely hasn't, it's not something Gnome will maintain for years to come. I tried MATE earlier out of curiosity and it looks exactly as in the screenshot, so you might wanna check it out.

Re: Unofficial Post Your Linux Mint Desktop Thread

Wow. Seriously hate Mint 12. Am I the only one? Top task bar is horrid, can't add shortcuts to either task bar.... I'm NOT moving myself or any of my clients to this OS unless it gets fixed big time. Just popped in here to see if anyone had gotten it to be usable (IE like Mint 10 or 11), and I don'...

Re: Another positive report...

There's another important dichotomy not touched upon in the article, the one between working mainly from your keyboard with shortcuts and mainly with your mouse clicking on icons and tabs and browsing menus. As a keyboard person, all the complaints that gnome shell (or Unity for that matter) isn't "...

Re: Vertical Panels in Gnome 3

That setup can be achieved in less than ten minutes in MGSE, all you need is a dock (e.g. awn or docky), adding a gnome shell extension to hide the top panel, disabling 2 already added extensions to remove the bottom panel, and setting up your vertical dock how you want it. This is Linux, you're not...

Re: Linux Mint 12 Release Candidate

Does anyone know how to change the icon pack that comes by default? I don't really like it all that much. :/ Put your downloaded icons folder into usr/share/icons/ (you must be root) and select them using Advanced Settings (aka Gnome Tweak Tool). Let me know if you need more detailed instructions :)

Re: Linux Mint 12 Release Candidate

The worst thing that can happen is that your icon spacing looks wonky temporarily until you restore original settings, so you should be alright just changing the 12 to 6 and pressing CTRL+S to save. It's not a handle with great caution system file as such. It said something about I was trying to re...

Re: Linux Mint 12 Release Candidate

Yup, just change the "12" to "6" in that one line (you have to be root, "sudo gedit usr/share/themes/Mint-Z/gnome-shell/gnome-shell.css" in a terminal opens the file as root).
Save. Press Alt+F2, type just "r" in the box, enter, gnome-shell reloads and the change should have taken effect.
