Peppermint settings panel won't open (SOLVED)
« on: February 12, 2019, 09:00:09 am »
Peppermint seems to be working fine, but when i click on menu > all> Peppermint Settings Panel, nothing happens.  Other things seems to open and work normally, including Peppermint Control Center. 
How do i fix that?
thank you.
