Re: Linux Mint 12 Release Candidate

um yes i have and i know what i'm looking at. Ubuntu has an App store like one which is alot more appealing, Mint's works don't get me wrong and for along time it was better then the others. Sounds like you haven't actually looked at the newest ones. Gotta go with spamazoid on this one, Ubuntu Soft...

Re: Linux Mint 12 Release Candidate

I also deactivated the bottom panel and am much happier with just the top panel. If they fix the icons so they are not spread out and make them more even in size, I'd say Mint 12 would just about be perfect :-) KBD47 That's quite easy to fix yourself by a simple edit in the shell theme .css file, t...

Re: Automatically mount NTFS partition at boot

The best application for mounting tasks is Storage Device Manager (pysdm).

sudo apt-get install pysdm

or find it in the software manager.

Re: Linux Mint 12 Release Candidate

We're talking about the overview, the thing on your screen when you click Activities or Infinity symbol icon, or press super ,or ram mouse into top left corner, the "dash".

Re: Mint 12 RC

That's not how Gnome Shell works so highly unlikely - I think there's a Gnome Shell extension to do exactly that but it won't be as seamlessly integrated into the top panel as in old Gnome. The way you're supposed to open favourite apps with the mouse in Gnome Shell is to ram your mouse into the top...

Re: Linux Mint 12 Release Candidate

The only thing that I would like to know how to change would be to have the infinity button on the top directly open the applications. To me it is just one other button to push. Click Infinity button --- click Applications. Why not go directly to to the icons on the applications screen? If I can fi...

Re: Icons that could be tweaked in LM12

To put it bluntly, the Faenza application icons are nice, the non-Faenza ones either aren't or stand out too much from the square scheme. Some of the not so great icons you list already have official Faenza replacements, they just haven't been implemented in mint's adaptation (yet?) (e.g. UXTerm and...

Re: Linux Mint 12 Release Candidate

Spent a day with the RC and it's more stable and faster than Oneiric Ocelot final release was on my machine, thumbs up, turned me into a minter quick! Hrmmm. I can't really relate to the gnome3 haters I guess. Nope, and certainly not how the mint crew has tweaked the shell, there's a bottom panel wi...

Re: Adding PPA's in LM12RC

Cheers mate, thought maybe there was an easier way or I was missing something, but OK, it'll do until the proper release is out :)

Adding PPA's in LM12RC

Mint noob used to Ubuntu ways issue: everytime I add a PPA, it gets .../lisa/main added to it, and doesn't work, system won't update because of course it fails to fetch the address. How do you guys add ppa's? Example: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:tiheum/equinox creates the error message: W: Failed to...

Re: Linux Mint 12 Release Candidate

If you hover over "Help" in the menu, the program description is "Get help with Unity". Oops :)

Really nice RC so far, everything is working fine this end. I was looking for an Ubuntu with just Gnome Shell and nothing Unity related pre-installed, and this certainly seems exactly it!
