Re: Overwrote SL by my son!

Hi wolfden, Let me explain further, my SL was on my 1TB (LVM) drive. My data drive (150GB) was an ext3. So my 150GB data drive was formatted when mandriva was installed, leaving my 1TB SL installation still on that LVM drive (luckily, I hope), So yes grub's been overwritten, so don't even have the o...

Re: Minimise, maximise & close messages gone.

Lo & behold, I've got my wibbly-wobbly windows back, including my minimise, maximise & close messages back :mrgreen: Wo...

Re: Minimise, maximise & close messages gone.

Well, I've changed Emerald themes, even my window manager without success :( I don't really want to re-install, I've heard that there are about 600+ updates via Equo :shock: Any ideas?

Thanks!

Re: Minimise, maximise & close messages gone.

Hi dunsurfin!
I'll try changing my Emerald theme/window decorator tonight when I get back from the work, hopefully that'll sort me out!

Thanks :D

Minimise, maximise & close messages gone. [Solved]

Noticed after upgrading to KDE 3.5.10 on 3.5 64bit, I've lost my minimise, maximise & close messages top right of any window/app I open :? Anyone else having this minor issue, more importantly, any idea how to get these little suckers back :lol:

Many thanks :D
