Resetting gnome panels to default

Posted 06-18-2010 at 07:46 PM by trevorparsons

I'm sorry to say that the problems with Gnome's panels persist in Ubuntu 10.04 'Lucid Lynx'.

I've found on several different machines that it's all too easy for a change of monitor resolution, or some other tweak to xorg, to trigger an unresolvable ballsup in the top panel. The applet icons in the top panel get jumbled up, and even disappear.

Today I logged in to a freshly installed, rather than upgraded, Lucid system running in VirtualBox, and was greeted with an error...

Linux Mint on an old machine

Posted 06-18-2010 at 10:53 AM by stuartd
Tags mint, windows

I was given an old machine by a friend and I took it to work, where we have very few machines for people to use. It's a drop-in centre with very little money.

I put Windows on it to start with (XP Home) because that's what all our service users are used to. Every day a nag popped up telling us that we had nn days until the system expired and we'd have to register it.

LQ Court Case: FOSS v. Software Fascism

I know, I know, the flame war between proprietary software advocates and FOSS advocates. It has plagued the Internet since the 1990s but, ultimately, FOSS is more free, is more controlled by the user, has less locks (like "Activation" or "Apple Hardware Exclusivity"), and is more customizable than ANY proprietary software.

Case in point: By hogging all the source code to your software, you effectively BLOCK development. To allow faster development and improvement...
