Re: Maya MATE Log-In Won't Allow Session Options

In the Mate Login screen did you press the middle button .. see picture here: http://www.webupd8.org/2012/05/install-mint-display-manager-mdm-in.html that looks like a window? Basically type in your username but do not press enter. Press the middle button, select the session you want, and then press...

Re: For a beginner user which one is better: Mate or Cinnamo

If you want an easy environment I recommend you try Zorin os 6 core, it is the free version, and works very well. You can always add the linux mint repositories later. Zorin uses gnome 3 but feels a lot like gnome 2. I use linux mint mate on my PC, I prefer it to cinnamon, as it seems like the finis...

Re: Compiz Kills Window Buttons & Panel Toolbar Window Switc

I found gconf-editor not useful, use ubuntu tweak instead. The theme area is in the theme button in the tweaks tab. Also clean the system using the janitor tab in ubuntu tweak in case a cache is corrupted.

Re: Can Compiz Allow Button Bars And Toolbar Menus in XFCE?

Also try resetting the .cache folder as it may be corrupted. Here's what to do. Open your home folder. Under "View", select "Show Hidden". Now all you have to do is rename .cache to something like .cachebak and reboot. The system will create a new .cache.

Re: Can Compiz Allow Button Bars And Toolbar Menus in XFCE?

To fix the plugin text not loaded issue. Go to ccsm which is the compiz settings manager and tick the text plugin box, as it s not ticked. Then reboot and see if everything now works.

Re: Compiz doesn't have window borders in 13 MATE?

I use ubuntu tweak 0.7.1 to change the themes easily, on my setup which has mate and compiz.

In ubuntu tweak, click the Tweaks tab and the window borders change with the 'window theme' combobox.

Fix for conky problems in Linux mint 13

I had a number of problems with conky and linux mint 13. These were all fixed for me by using conky 1.9.0-2, after finding this information on page 1991 of a conky forum on ubuntu forums. These are the locations of the conky 1.9.0-2 files: 32bit- https://launchpad.net/~vincent-c/+archive/conky/+file...

Re: LMDE Boot Faster

I agree, Linux Mint Maya is considerably faster to boot up and shut down. Currently prefer LMDE 13 as Compiz and Conky work much better in LMDE.

Any tips for speeding up startup and shutdown?
