Re: Expo opens on it's own

The top left hot corner triggers expo. In a virtualbox it's best to disable it. Got to Cinnamon Settings and disable hot corner.

Re: Gnome3 for the experienced (FUN Stuff!!!)

Lots of interesting info here on the new Classic Mode to be introduced in Gnome 3.8: http://blogs.gnome.org/mclasen/ It will be basically be a gnome-shell session with a set of extensions enabled to make it look and work like a classic desktop. Personally I think the idea is daft and a waste of effo...

Re: Anyone know how to theme the "Mint Main Menu?"

Depends on which of the many different versions of Mint you use. There's more than one.

Re: Mint 14: No Sound (Suddenly) / Sound Stops working

If you're "lucky", it's the common mint/ubuntu issue of your system on its own initiative suddenly choosing another hardware device. Open Sound Settings, open the Hardware tab, and choose the hardware device not selected (if there is one). The issue is that sometimes, for no reason, the system sudde...

Re: Cinnamon development news

Rehdon, that's not such a bad idea, splitting up user preferences like that. You should suggest it on github: https://github.com/linuxmint/Cinnamon/p ... t-12836752

(or create a new issue on the same topic, since it's closed)

I'm not involved in the development, merely reporting from the sidelines :) ) Cinnamon development edges closer to Cinnamon 1.8 slowly adding the features outlined in the Cinnamon 1.8 roadmap mtwebster is working on...

Re: 2013: Taking the Mint userbase to the next level.

Totally agree with you on Steam. Installed by default and optimized to (made sure to) work well with Steam. Luckily clem takes a keen interest in Steam compatibility . Pre-installs (PC/laptops shipping with Mint) are out of Mint's league*. Even Ubuntu with so much more financial muscle are strugglin...

Re: 2013: Taking the Mint userbase to the next level.

I don't think Mint has a PR man and there are no launch parties or release countdown buzz or anything like that afaik. Personally I like the no-hype resulting from this, it's one of the reasons I prefer Mint over Ubuntu :D Does it matter how many users there and how much the userbase grows? Only in ...

Re: Bring back the Hot Corner from Linux Mint 12!! :-)

The Hot Corner in Mint 12 was the standard Gnome Shell overview, so if you want this back, simply install gnome-shell and log into the session "GNOME" from the login screen. There is no chance of it "coming back" to a default Mint session. MGSE wasn't something separate from gnome-shell, it was just...

it's like dancing with a blind hippo.

Re: What do you not like about Cinnamon?

Cinnamon is 1 year old, just about, of course it needs fine tuning, goes without saying. No project can be that young and without considerable bugs and shortcomings. About the Search, Gnome Shell does it the same way Cinnamon does, it doesn't just filter by application name, but also by application ...

I use it for everything and don't dual boot with XP anymore. The only things I miss from Windows are foobar/iTunes and Photoshop, I have made do with Linux equivalents but they're not replacements.

Re: Distros Using Mint DE's / Mint-Based Distros

Well, the title is misleading, but it's nice to see a list of Distros supporting Cinnamon :D

MATE is not a Mint project, it's an independent project supported by Mint.
