Re: panels in cinnamon

I am confused about mate and cinnammon but when I log in I'm logging in as gnome not mate. Right clicking on the panel does not do anything I will try altering the values as you described and see if that works. Thanks.

Re: Toolbars in Mint 12

In ubuntu 11:10 you alt-right click to access the settings for the top and bottom panels (in classic gnome). I have a related question (sort of) how do you do that in mint 12. I want to make the panels transparent.

Re: fan won't switch off on toshiba lx350 SOLVED

Bump... I've tried lots of stuff I can get my fn-f6/7 keys (brightness) to work and fan to go on and off normally if I press fn-f3 and hibernate first.
