I have all of the new tools installed. The GUI improvements on the mintassistant are nice! The mintmenu loads faster in the panel. Nice work!

For mintUpload make sure you have nautilus-actions installed... the dependency isn't there so that mintUpload can be compatible with KDE basically.

I have it installed. I remembered that from a while back. Thanks!

Mintupload looks really nice now!

So far I have not been able to reproduce the log off and shut down problem with the menu!

Hi clem and lars
Thanks for making the icon sizeable! looks much better you have done a very good job, i also noticed uninstalling rhythmbox no longer states it will uninstall gnome :).

Just a suggestion tho, when the button is active the window sort of sits a little low and covers part of the toolbar, could this be configured? because it annoys me slightly.

Hi Kynan

Yes the offset of the menu is configurable. Run `gconf-editor /apps/mintMenu/mintMenu_offset` and then adjust the value.

Speaking of MintTools, how about putting them in their own little menu-folder, like I've done on my system?

^ the above thread brings up alot of good points, its worth a read if you have the time.

here is mine all fixed up :) i decided i would call it mintTools to go with the naming convention we seem to have going ;).

Kynan , could you post the path to the icon you used for the tools folder? I think that the way you set up the tools folder looks professional and will help new user's and make the mint tools stand out more.

Yea no problem.
/usr/lib/linuxmint/mintMenu
or
/usr/share/icons/Celena/48x48/places




P.S
The software portal icon uses the path /usr/share/icons/Celena/48x48/places which is actually what i used for the mintTools as well. if you look really closely you will notice the icon has a slight boarder and the reason its a little bit different is because i was playing with the icon and i decided to see how it would look if it had a boarder so it would look good if we had a white background

see here if you want to know what i mean... viewtopic.php?f=25&t=7256#p45782
