Hi tppthpthp
Geesh - say that three times when you're drunk :P
Welcome to the forum from another old fart (57)
Your questions cannot possibly as silly as mine were when I started Linux.
Jump right in and ask away, its better to ask and get it right than ask the clever ones to fix a mistake  :)
Regards Zeb...

Hi tppthpthp welcome to the Peppermint Forum young 'un  ;D.  This is the place to learn about Linux and have a whole load of fun in the process.  There's no such thing as a stupid question here; so ask away  ;)

Thank you everyone for the welcome.

Hi tppthpthp
Geesh - say that three times when you're drunk :P

The tppthpthp is something I picked up from comics when a character would blow a raspberry.........
I use it as my email too. It's fun when someone asks for your address and you can blow a raspberry then say "at ####.com".

As for questions, I thought I had one, but I found a partial answer after doing a search and installed ARandR.

Very easy to say 5 times when drunk then .. in fact depending on indulgence sometimes it's all one can say :)

PeppermintOS has to be my favourite distro. I just installed it now and, I gotta say, it's beautiful. The DE is set up so nicely, the black theme is great and easy on the eyes. It's so quick aswell! The software is just as good; Ice is a great piece of software. Even thought I don't use it, I can see it's potential to be great for the people who do. It's similar to what has to be my favourite feature: how easy it is to switch drivers. I expected to have to find a tutorial on how to download proprietary Nvidia drivers on peppermint(it was a nightmare on opensuse), but lo and behold it's as easy as changing it in a GUI. I honestly cannot think of any negative critism to this operating system. Great job guys.

Hi memelad2005
and welcome to the Forums. Reading your post above just made me remember the first time I found Peppermint 6 and "Everything" just worked  :D :D :D
It was such a relief and now we have an even BETTER experience with Peppermint 7
Enjoy the Peppermint Experience

Howdy All! My name is Fishman, most folks just call me Fish. I have been using Linux since 2006 and been having a blast ever since. I am also a YouTube Linux content provider. I look forward to experimenting more with Peppermint Linux.
I love it when a plan comes together!!!

Welcome aboard, Fish !

Oddly enough, I have a friend named Fish -- best VW tuner in the Phoenix area -- VW street rods, racecars, dragsters, all things VeeDub.  :)

Hello to all Pepperminters,

I am... well... Skara Brae, from the country with the best chocolate, the best beer and the best french fries in the entire universe.

I vaguely remember struggling not so successfully with SUSE Linux 5 (or was it 6?), and later having more success with Mandrake Linux 9 (alongside Windows ME - that's how long ago that is).

As many other people, I started with Ubuntu/Xubuntu, and then switched to (the wonderful) Linux Mint (and to Debian "jessie"), when Canonical came with that horrible Unity (and Debian with the just-as-horrible Gnome 3 - long live xfce and fluxbox.).

Also nicely running OS X El Capitan on a "refurbished, mid-2011" iMac, while I still have my iMac G5 from 2004 with OS X "Tiger" (very obsolete nowadays, but still working fine, knock on wood). I will not mention my two few-of-years old computers with Windows Vista on them, one of which (even) is my casual, mid-range gaming PC.

Oh, I also have an old HP machine with XP, Mint 13 xfce and Bunsenlabs in "triple boot" around here. I think that I am having too many computers :)

Anyway, I came across PeppermintOS only a few weeks ago, and after having reinstalled XP and Debian last week (after messing up GRUB like a n00b), I installed Peppermint 7 on a spare partition. It is running quite nicely on this old Core2Duo machine with 2 GB RAM and its Intel "onboard video" of mine.

I had a few backup plans ready, in case I would find Peppermint 7 a failure (FreeBSD? Fedora? Xubuntu?), but it seems that Peppermint is here to stay :-)

A job WELL DONE by the Peppermint creators. They can put on their gorilla suit and beat their chest without having to feel embarrassed. Peppermint 7 works fine (for nearly two hours), and it looks lovely. (Love the wallpapers.)

Beautiful!
