Hello Folks thanks for the update I wonder if the Peppermint team may look at moving to LXQT for Peppermint 6 sounds like a logical route or XFCE thanks



Hello DrCreamcake,

I tried the LXQt over at Manjaro about a month ago, and I didn't have much success with it.  In fact, it performed better for me a year ago than it did a month ago!  Now, really, I don't know why this was.  But, I wonder if development has slowed down concerning LXQt.  :-\

Even though I like to take a peek at these things every now and then, I had really bad luck with it over at Manjaro.  I had lots of problems updating it.

P.S.

This may only be me, but a year ago, when LXQt was working better at Manjaro, I did not find LXQt as easy to use as Peppermint.

I tried LXQT before. It was okay and not too heavy on my poor little machine. Using Kwin, I think it weighed in about as much on system resources as XFCE. I believe it was the panel that annoyed me for some reason, though.

Yes, it was a nuisance setting up that panel.  It wasn't very user-friendly.  That's how I remember the experience.

So, Peppermint 6 is out - I only just found out - oops.  Can anyone tell me how I find out which kernel I'm using please?

Open a terminal and run:
Code: [Select]
uname -a
the output from that command will tell you which kernel you're currently using.

if it mentions i386 - you're running the 32bit kernel

if it mentions amd64 - you're running the 64bit kernel

I guess that's what you mean ?

Thanks PCNetSpec.  That tells me 3.16.0-41-generic, which is what I was after.  Other systems on my laptop show the kernel in use in the grub graphical loader entries, but not Peppermint.

I do understand it's somewhat heinous to revive a long-dead bugger, but I would have to duplicate the thread otherwise :(.

I read that Peppermint OS operates on a Blizzard-esque basis of 'it's done when it's done'. However, as Ubuntu 16.04 LTS is almost out and Ubuntu 14.04 LTS will be fully supported only until 2017 as I reckon, is there any work being done on Peppermint OS Seven (7)?

I am honestly just curious, because Peppermint OS Six (6) is working fantastically on my desktop, though some of the software (including the kernel) is getting quite stale :).

Yes work is most definitely underway on Peppermint 7

BTW, 14.04 is supported for 5 years so 2019

I'm going to hate to say goodbye to Peppermint 6.  I've loved every moment of using it.  It's been an absolutely spectacular distribution.  :)

That doesn't sound so bad then :). I'll keep using it on my desktop to see how well it competes with Manjaro and Arch Linux.

PeppermintOS 8 is LTS and will be supported until well into 2021 (Ubuntu 16.04).   Upgrading to the newest release is not required and, in fact, many users stay with earlier versions until their EOL.  Annual releases are offered that reflect what the team considers enhancements and improvements.
