Sure, go ahead =)

but I'm sorry guys, I've decided to going back to ZOS9. My reason would be:

1) The problem as stated on my previous post
2) In Mac OS X look, ZOS10 uses Plank Dock [which is much faster upon startup but lacks on customization] instead of Docky [which is slightly slower upon startup but offers a fair customization and animation] like we have on ZOS9
3) My Wifi does not works great on ZOS10 since I have to reboot my router each time I startup Zorin to get access to the Internet [Maybe it only happens to me :( ]
4) My touchpad also doesn't working on ZOS10 so I have to uses USB mouse instead [Again, maybe this problem only occurs to me,.. Idk... Maybe it happen because I'm using USB mouse when Installing ZOS10...]



However, don't get me wrong guys, ZOS10 works great on Windows 7 look and it looks much prettier than ZOS9.
So it's a matter of personal preferences,.. Like me, I would interested to feels the Mac OS X look instead of Windows 7 ,.. it gives me a different feels than what we have on ordinary Windows 7,..

So yeah, ZOS10 was definitely a great great OS available out there with such a beautiful and user friendly interface,.. You guys should try it once =)


Hi, you coud deploy 3d look of the AWN panel:

The only messy bit is indicator3 applet so this works with logout etc and power off but can't logout in Cairo-Dock DE! (And Opera does not work in Cairo-Dock DE but does in Zorin DE):

Wow it looks very Beautiful!

Thank you very much for your suggestion, Mr. Swarfendor437!
you sure put a lot of effort to find all that and I'm really appreciate it! =)

But to be honest, I've already downgraded back to ZOS9 Ultimate since my last post :(
Will go with ZOS9 for awhile now but I will try to find a good time to re-install ZOS10 again later

Anyway, this is how my desktop looks on ZOS9 =)

Hi ezispark - that looks really cool! Just remember, Zorin 10 will only be supported until January 2016 as it is based on Ubuntu 15.04 so expect the same life-cycle! ;) :D

Okay, It's my turn to help you out!

1) To move the Orb Icon [Min max close] to the left, you just simply enter this command:

Code: Select all
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.preferences button-layout 'close,minimize,maximize:'


Before apply:

After Apply:

#You can always revert back to the original position by changing the Zorin Look Changer to Windows 7. :D

Got that code from here [seek to no.6]:
http://zoringroup.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=8601


2) Well if you mean to adjust the transparency of the gray [window] bar, then here's how to do it:

go to software centre, install dconf-editor

Once installed, Open dconf-editor via System tools

Once opened, go to org -> compiz -> gwd

set metacity-theme-active-opacity --> 0.5 [or any value that less than 1.0]

set metacity-theme-inactive-opacity --> 0.5 [or any value that less than 1.0]

Here's the setting:

Hopefully this wil help :D
P/s: I have no idea on how do you upload the image with small box,so I just give the link for the image instead,.. :)

I've been trying out various linux OS, installing them to my 128 GB thumbstick drive, and running them on my alienware laptop. None of them could detect the wireless card by default which on Alienware is Killer 1525 802.11ac 2x2 WiFi and Bluetooth 4.1

Here is the fix for that I found... first download: http://blog.hyperexpert.com/wp-content/ ... .0_all.deb and put that on the desktop.

Do ctrl + alt + t to open up Terminal.

Then type this command
Code: Select all
sudo dpkg --install /home/fringe/Desktop/ath10k-dkms_1.0_all.deb
and hit enter.

Except change fringe to your account name.

I would hope that in the future Zorin OS doesn't have this problem when you are installing it new on an alienware computer. I had to connect an ethernet cable to fix this issue.

Sorry if this is in the wrong sub-forum I am not sure where to put this. I have also a request that you make the power indicator capable of showing the power left in wireless mouse and keyboard just like on Linux Mint.

>inb4 someone mocks me for having an alienware laptop or for having one and installing Linux on it

I hate Windows and I only use Gimp and Blender and run Unity 3D in Wine and I play my games just fine on Linux.

If anyone knows how to install a persistent Linux OS onto a thumbstick drive so you can have your OS, update your OS, and have all your files all on the same thumbstick drive you can take anywhere please tell me btw. I tried various versions of Puppy and none of them worked for me.

There was a good point raised some time ago by another forum member that the problem with persistence is that your thumb drive is a cut-down version of an SSD and will have a limited rewrite life - someone did write a very good tutorial on here how they did it in the How-to section I believe - try to find it there - my personal favourite is MultiSystem which uses a drag and drop approach to OS creation on a thumb drive and will tell you instantly if MultiSystem supports it - not the case with Unetbootin which from my experience in the past has done all the gubbins then refused to launch - MultiSystem comes complete with VB and quemu - you can use the latter to test that your iso has taken correctly to the stick. :D
