Peppermint 10
« on: June 02, 2019, 06:33:55 am »
Hello forums,

Just installed Peppermint 10 have a couple of questions.

Does the Minimal Install option work as that is what I chose however seems to have installed as a full although uncertain.

What happened to the Peppermint Start Page that was used in previous Peppermint versions as I noticed the standard default Firefox page.

The install and updates went without problems and then a few bits of additional software installed using Synaptic Package Manager.

Everything seems to be working.  :)

Peppermint 10 installed on a 2007 HP Pavilion I put together from spare parts.

The minimal install option currently does nothing .. we're already "user application" bare .. it's our ethos not to choose user apps (that's your job) :)

The Peppermint Start Page should still be the default homepage when you open Firefox (or Chrome/Chromium) .. did you keep a home folder from a previous installation ?

Can you post the output from:
Code: [Select]
ls ~/.mozilla/firefoxand
Code: [Select]
cat ~/.mozilla/firefox/profiles.iniand
Code: [Select]
ls /etc/skel/.mozilla/firefox


And is anyone else missing the Peppermint Start Page ?

You're not using the default Peppermint Firefox profile .. which explains why your defaults are different.

If you want the defaults, WITH FIREFOX CLOSED run:
Code: [Select]
xed ~/.mozilla/firefox/profiles.iniand make it read:-
Code: [Select]
[Install4F96D1932A9F858E]
Default=peppermint.default

[Profile0]
Name=default
IsRelative=1
Path=peppermint.default
Default=1

[General]
StartWithLastProfile=1
Version=2
SAVE the file .. and now launch Firefox.

Hello PCNetSpec,

I wonder what caused it to change.

The first install I did choose the minimal install choice which you said is inactive.

I did a normal install on the second desktop without any changes.

Both times the standard default Firefox page.

Everything works good on both desktop computers.


Thanks

Oh well.
That's Cool.

It's all working good.
I don't mind DuckDuckGo for my search page.
