The main computer is getting changed from Mint 17.1 to Lubuntu as I type this. Spotify wouldn't load, Radio Tray wouldn't start, then some Synaptic Package manager and the update manager are screwed with some error. Washing my hands of Mint. Was a nice DE but apparently it's just not for me. Bummer really after getting it all themed up the way I wanted it and looking nice. I may try again at a later date.

Hi all I have pressed my old Dell Tower back into service with a 1Tb hard drive and nVidia GT610 graphics card, installed Peppermint 6 32bit and got my desktop looking just fine, let me know what you think please.

+Kantuck Nadie Nata-Akon Yes, "Whisker" is better, and some distros already come with that.  I think Xubuntu does.

If you have a problem  caused by Ubuntu 15.04 shipping with libgcrypt20, while some apps such as Spotify in this example need a previous version libgcrypt11. Well here is an easy fix.

+Graham Linux I used to play around but I can't be bothered now. I work in IT too, so the last thing I want when I get in is more computers.

Ikea Patched for Shellshock by Methodically Upgrading All Servers

Global retailer Ikea has built its reputation around common-sense Swedish design. In an entertaining session at the Red Hat Summit here, Magnus Glantz, IT manager at Ikea, detailed the flavor of common sense it used to patch for the recent Shellshock vulnerability that impacted Linux systems.

http://www.eweek.com/security/ikea-patched-for-shellshock-by-methodically-upgrading-all-servers.html
It took about 2.5 hours to test, deploy and upgrade Ikea's entire IT infrastructure to defend against Shellshock. Here's how Ikea did it so quickly.

Hi, I'm running xfce 4.12 and have got 2 panels that are set to hide intelligently.  The issue I am having is that when Chromium is open, the panels don't show when I put my mouse to the top or bottom of the screen (where the panels are).  Chromium is the only program that I have found that causes this issue.  Just wondering if anyone else has this and if anyone has a fix.  Thanks

The only good thing about Apple Inc is that, by existing as a company I am able to not buy any of the premium grade garbage they make. I guess they are also the only company that keeps Windows from being ranked the worst OS in existence so we will call it "two good things that are still only worth one good thing" about Apple Inc. 
PS: Mr. Android tells me that Apple also makes a good butt wipe and robot butt polisher.

+John Askew I would only point out that Windows can also be plug and play for a much much lower initial investment. That's why I tell people Linux is not "free" it just don't cost you any money.
