Re: How can I change panel font colour?

Okay, my search went on and I found a way to change the font colour of main menus using gnome-colour-chooser available in PL3.2 repos. Here's a link to a short and pleasant Youtube video showing how to use it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fSw7j1Hw4bQ The font on the clock applet still remains bla...

Re: home folder fails to open

Yes, that was simple enough. Thanks for that. Back to normal. Still wonder how the file got corrupted in the first place (as well as how anyone can remember where all the files are to control various aspects of a desktop - it's a skill I can't seem to master).

Re: USB and external drives not mounting

I had a epiphany - maybe it's a permission issue.

So I entered the command -

sudo chmod 777 /media

and the problem is solved.

How and why I lost permissions on /media is a mystery!

Hope that helps someone else :)
