ANNOUNCEMENT - Peppermint 7 Respin Released.
« on: November 29, 2016, 11:09:40 am »
Team Peppermint are pleased to announce that the Peppermint 7 Respin is now available from the main website.

Improvements
All updates to date (including the 4.4.0-47 kernel).
Fixed multimedia keyboard function keys.
Fixed browsing for smb network printers.
Fix for Google Chrome keyring prompt.
Added pulseaudio-module-bluetooth for bluetooth headsets.
Added hplip for HP Printer support out of the box.
Update manager set to not prompt to upgrade to next "Ubuntu LTS" version by default.
"Firefox Themer" name changed to "Firefox Theme Lock" to save confusion over its function.
and minor tweaks such as:-
A new Ray Bilcliff default wallpaper (to differentiate the respin).
A new Ubiquity installer slideshow.
A new GRUB background.
A new Plymouth splash screen.

Many thanks to the whole team for ideas, feedback, testing, bug fixes, etc. .. and a special shout to our forum trusted user GNULINUX for help with the new Ubiquity slideshow and artwork for the main site slider :)

Okay, go get it :)

How do I get the new GRUB background and Plymouth splash screen in my current Peppermint 7 installation?

EDIT: I figured it out. I noticed plymouth-theme-peppermint-7 was updated, but it didn't switch the default theme from peppermint-7 to peppermint-7-spin. I edited default.plymouth to change it. FYI, somebody spelled plymouth wrong in the Description. :P

Nice one, I'm downloading as I type.  Even the torrents seem to be busy.  That's always nice to know  ;).  Installation will be a good task for tomorrow afternoon 'cause it's bleedin' brassic here  :-X  << me shivering!!  There's no point in going outside :)).  Just to confirm my thinking.  I should be able to do a  /root install, leaving my /home partition intact?

If you're going from 7 --> 7respin YES that should be okay, but you'll then have to manually change the wallpaper and ditch the descriptions from the whiskermenu.

Will the current Peppermint 7 update to the respin version automatically?  If not, is there a way to update to the respin or must you do a complete install.

Thanks.

I may post instructions how to turn the original into the respin later after I've fully tested them .. it should be pretty straight forward, but I don't want to post instructions that may cause breakage.

Thanks! I love regular iso respins.  :)

By the way: are there any mirror servers for Peppermint in The Netherlands?

May I suggest that you contact the NLUUG? They already provide a free Dutch ftp mirror for iso's of many Linux distro's:

Hello
I am a 70 year old just coming off the Windows plantation.  I bought a couple really nice 2 GIG R61 Thinkpads  cheap that needed and OS.  Saw  "English Bob"  review on YouTube of Peppermint and decided that would be the way to go.  Its only been two weeks Still learning the slang and how things work

Anyway in your first post announcement of Peppermint respin you end up saying "Now go get it"  Except There is no link and I dont have a clue  Where I would go to get it to see what other things I can get in to.
I went to Peppermintos page and the announcement said go to the  Peppemintos forum to try it. The only thing I found was the announcement there which took me back to the Peppermintos.com.   All rather confusing
And as an add If anyone has any good suggestion for books on learning the "slang" I would appreciate id
