How was it fixed?

I emailed Jesse Smith on the contact page asking him to add Netbooks as a category for us. He got back to me in 1 hour saying he would change it, and voila, there it is!  :)

I'm probably the only teacher in my entire school running Linux.  Other teachers have heard of it, but our school is a Windows world.

 

 

(Sorry to hijack the thread, but thought I could at least pass this along here)

You should check out Escuelas Linux. It is an educational distro originally geared toward the spanish language, but it is also available in english.

Applications when open have up and down arrows instead of the dashes and boxes like Mint and Windows.  I've discovered the up arrow resizes the window, but naturally default to hitting the down arrow to minimize, only I don't know where it goes and I end up starting a new instance of a program (Firefox usually).  Is there a minimize behavior?

 

 

I like to use the module "tasks" in a shelf. (first make sure the module is loaded, then add it to a shelf) When a window is minimized, it will still appear in the tasks module.

Alternatively, you could do an <alt + tab> to cycle through windows on the current desktop.

I don't want to send things flying into outer space here, but if you wanted to install nemo and see if that will do what you're asking, you could install it like this --

sudo apt-get install --no-install-recommends nemo

Only reason I mention it is because pcmanfm seems to be giving you lots of heartache. I use nemo with very few problems.
