    I don't get these specific errors, but nouveau craps on my card too and just jumps to software rendering early during boot. If I try to start Xorg with the open source drivers it just hangs for a minute and then displays corrupted memory to the screen (I get random pixels, mainly purples and whites in semi-blocky patters)
    I'm not sure how to get proprietary drivers in Ubuntu/Mint, but in Arch it's a fairly simple matter (shameless arch recommendation)
    Arch looks a bit difficult for me considering I'm a beginner to Linux :p

    I've only tried one Tiling WM: Awesome. I've used it for more than 3 months straight, configured it the way I liked it, and I loved it-- when it worked properly.

    20% of the move-window-clicks I make gets the window stuck to the cursor until I attempt to close it, maximized chrome can avoid the window manager entirely (getting stuck on screen, unclosable, unresizeable, un-unmaximizeable, persisting through workspaces), and many many small annoying things happened frequently.

    I really love the idea of a tiling window manager and I enjoy using one, but can someone recommend a good tiling window manager where I don't have to manually program it to work correctly?

    I'd say dwm, i3 or Xmonad.

    I'm rather glad I now only have this trivial question to ask, having gotten it working now.

    How do I get Chrome and Firefox to use the mouse scroll (where you click the middle button and move the mouse pointer to scroll) when I click the scroll wheel? Using Mint 14 Cinnamon.

    EDIT: Is it called click scrolling? I honestly can't remember.

    No option anywhere in the browsers :/
    I should be a bit clearer; it doesn't work anywhere, guessing middle click has a different function. Doesn't seem to be an option for it in Preferences/Mouse and Touchpad, either.

    I have seen some users have in the upper panel some 'text shorcuts', like shorcuts to a web page, an application, the terminal, etcetera. It might be only in awesome.

    That worked, thanks :D
    Now I know what the term is called, I can look for ways to enable it elsewhere.
    EDIT: And found an extension for it in Chrome

    Once you get used to it, openbox is pretty awesome. I have a problem which i couldn't fix with other theme-changing tools. LXAppearance doesn't seem to save theme configs. I tried gtk-chtheme, but that doesn't allow you to change icons and such.

    That's my only problem with LXAppearance, I want to make my own colourscheme for Adwaita but the colours don't stick, had to edit it manually ;v

    So it booted and then failed.

    Waiting 30 seconds for device /dev/disk/by-label/CINNARCH_201211 ...
    ERROR: '/dev/disk/by-label/CNNARCH_201211' device did not show up after 30 seconds...
    Falling back to interactive prompt
    You can try to fix the problem manually, log out when you are finished
    sh: can't access tty: job control turned off

    So its a fair assumption that Linux hates me? :p

    Okay, I have found another 'thing' that bugs me. Tint2 doesn't have a volume control applet in the system tray, and I don't have a keyboard with media keys, so right now I can't change the volume. Any way to fix this?

    You didn't label your USB drive "CINNARCH_201211"

    That's why it's failing.

    Edited:

    Like the partition label thing, y'know.

    In windows, go to the properties of the drive and just type in the name. In *NIX... There was some tool, I can't remember.

    You mean this don't you. I think it may be possible somehow in tint2 but I really don't think it'd work the same.

    Maybe you copied it wrong, but the log states that the label is CNNARCH_201211 instead of CINNARCH_201211

    Name it what ever you want, then in the boot menu press tab and change the label it looks for.

    Well, it's dwm so there isn't any "panel" so to speak. It's beastie's config which is located here.

    I've also been using i3 for the past couple of hours while I work and I must say, I love it. There is only one thing that annoys me though. Whenever I open a program e.g. firefox i3 decides to open it the whole way across both my screens and that's obviously not what I want. Is there any way to change this?

    Boot from the USB drive, then when it shows the menu press tab(or sometimes e). It should show you a long string of text, find where it say "LABEL=CNNARCH_201211" and change it to what you named it.

    I don't want to be an asshole, but why are we explaining to someone how to install a distro that is clearly way over their head?

    Maybe we should focus on fixing his GPU problems that he'll still have when running on Arch.
