Linux So, it's no secret that the Linux desktop - at least, the GNOME-side of things - is a bit in a state of disarray. Unity hasn't exactly gone down well with a lot of people, and GNOME 3, too, hasn't been met with universal praise. So, what to do? Linux Mint, currently one of the most popular Linux distributions out there, thinks they are on to the solution with their latest release, Linux Mint 12.

Troll much? I've been using Gnome3 for over a month now with almost no complaints.

Different people, different tastes. Stop with the hate.

I'm not trolling. Any Window manager where you can't right click anything is useless. There's a reason nobody still buys the 1990's one button mac mouse. Mice have 2 buttons, and (suprise!) they each have a distinct and useful functionality.

Any WM that doesn't have some right click usage is going in the garbage immediately. I don't like Mac. I don't like Gnome 3. I don't like Unity. There's a reason I use Linux, and it's not because I don't know what the second fucking button is for.

Linux is getting destroyed by their devs. I don't know how much MS or Apple is paying them, but it's working. Good job!

wtf are you on about? Right clicking works splendidly in gnome3. There are context menus everywhere; in the dock, in title bars, in the main program window (if the app has context menus), for copy/pasting/cutting text.

If right clicking isn't working for you then its a problem with your machine, NOT a stock condition for Gnome3.


Seriously, wtf? Your post makes no sense unless you have some massive hardware or software issue. If this isn't what you mean by "cant right click anything" then, please, fill me in.

Linux is getting destroyed by their devs.

Is an irony then, because it was till GNOME 3 that I was able to switch full time to Linux and I couldn't be happier.
