"Start menu" text? and random musing.

Post by Nanda on Fri Jun 10, 2016 10:48 pm

So, this is really sort of a "polish" aspect for me.. but I'm not sure what the terms for things are for linux just yet.

The "start menu" on the bottom left, where it says ChaletOS? I think it would be awesome if I can change it to ChronOS. I don't know why, it just occurred to me sitting here in class. Is this even a thing I can change with this OS?

I also notice some folders in my file system are blocked from access. I assume this is since Chalet is aimed for newer Linux users, and like with Windows, program files and system32 tend to be hidden/locked. Is this for the same purpose, to protect us from ourselves? Haha.

Well, it was as easy as right clicking and selecting properties. I hadn't even tried. Whelp!

to change start menu text right click the start menu and hit "properties". Then there is a text box under "Title" where you can change the text on the start menu.

Also folders other than /home/username are locked from the user. To be able to use them search 'thunar' and there is a "Thunar File Manager (administrator) application that runs your file manager as super user. However I don't recommend you do this unless you know what you are doing. Fiddling around with those files can damage your system!

The only good thing about Windows is that it never gives you any terminal illnesses.
Needless to say, Terminal illnesses are the only problem with Linux.
