I have replaced Ubuntu 11.10 with Linux Mint and Overall I am quite happy. I have replaced Gnome 3 with LXDE simply because I enjoy have a GUI and I enjoy having some customization but without all the bloat of a larger window manager.
Now what I'm hoping to do that I really hope someone can help me with is
1) The default battery monitor does not work but typing "acpi" into a terminal does. Is there any way that I may put results that command into the bottom panel so that I will still have battery percentage. If not maybe someone can instruct me on creating a script that watches that polls the acpi command about every ten minutes and warns me when the battery drops below a certain level.
2) What is the darn name of the gnome package in Mint Linux so that I may remove it?
Thanks in Advance :D
on bottom left click on Menu, if its set on favorites click on all applications, on right column scroll down to power management click on it. Go to general and on bottom right click on always display icon.
