Question New on tha scene

I am starting to get the hang of Linux. I have compiled stuff and I've got some command line knowledge. Have tried a BUNCH of different GUI's recently, in my quest for the most bada$$ system ever. After a LOT of hrs of testing, I'm bak to Gnome, where I started. It seems not only to be the most stable, but to also have the most functionality.

The thing that initially drove me to try other things was- I cannot figure out how to really manipulate GTK+ themes. I want to change the look of the panel and the windows. I tried emerald, but it locked up the system. (borders and bottons disappeared and computer locked up)

Howdy and Welcome.

Don't know if you know about Gnome color chooser yet. It will be in Mints package manager.

That might happen because either your video chip is not up to the task or you don't have a the proper Video driver loaded for your video chip. Best if you start a new thread giving details on what you tried instead of posting in member intro about it. Gnome color chooser works ok though without any special needs.

Happy Trails, Rok


emerald, gtk+, panel, theme
