7 Newbie questions

Postby flagellum » Thu Oct 25, 2007 12:11 pm

Ok, I'll start with the most important question first.

1.Firefox won't stop crashing. I had just got done typing a long, detailed first post here and it crashed, again. It does this often, seemingly for no reason whatsoever. I don't know what would cause it, I want to guess and say an add-on that I have, but all the add ons I have I previously used on XP and they worked just fine. It acts really slow, then just locks up.

2. I messed up my start bar.
Can I revert it to default? Or "theme" over it? Also, it does not collapse. The only way I can get it to go away is click "show desktop" And it open whenever I open firefox, even though I don't click the button.

3. I have themes in the emerald theme manager, how do I apply them?

4. Every time I open the beryl manager I get a big cube of white sides that I don't know how to edit, or close for that matter. I just get stuck whenever I open it.

5. Does NVU stand up to dreamweaver? I doubt it, so is it fairly simple to use "wine" to run dreamweaver? Same with photoshop?

6. Is there a tool that this has, or that I can download that lets me search for wireless networks in my range?

7. I had another important question as well, but I can't remember what I wrote.

What kind of graphic card do you have? the first few problems you have seems to be related to graphics.

What would happen if you disable beryl?

1.\ did you upgrade to gutsy? Cause if you did you need to upgrade to Daryna unstable as well.. otherwise firefox won't work.

2.\ Remove mintmenu from the panel, open a terminal and type "gconftool-2 --recursive-unset /apps/mintMenu" then add mintmenu again.

3. \ Just select them within the emeral manager... and make sure beryl manager uses beryl and not metacity.

4. \ Not sure what you mean...

5. \ NVU is handy but it's nowhere near Dreamweaver... I heard DW worked under wine, but not the latest versions..

6. \ open a terminal and type "sudo iwlist yourwirelessdevice scan", I'm sure there are a lot of GUIs for that, look in synaptic.

7. \ lol :)
