What's pretty? To scour the file system for options/configs/settings?

Let me make this clear: I don't care WHERE are the settings; this is the software's business, not mine.


might be a language barrier. Making changes to preferences is what my statement was about. And the fact that they are all similar, so it's not like a new challenge every time.

Then use the GUI to change them.


Cristian Amarie wrote:
I want to *change* settings, not figure out where the file is.


Settings and configuration files are in the same place all the time. It's a file system standard.

<layer>I want to do sudo apt-get install, not to figure out why after installing debian on my netbook no valid deb sources were present.


I thought you were talking about changing preferences, configurations, or settings. Handling dependancies for apt is another thing entirely.

That's from a 4 hours ago semi failed debian install - one hour later Mint 12 was downloaded/installed immediately. Go figure.)


I don't even know what to say. It sounds like you need Mint, not debian. This is not the software's fault. Mint and Ubuntu are made for a more "windowsy" experience. I'm happy you got Mint installed.

Thanks for the "click more than one link" hint - I suppose you think I'm dumb, lazy, or both. However, I am considering myself an educated person, with a good sense of what A element click() does.



I was just saying that you didn't search very hard. Each distro has a website with forums, and all the workings are very well documented in easy to read ways. I have only seen a couple of HTML versions of the man page when searching.
If it moves, compile it
