Yesterday I updated some system files using the default program, but when I did restart, it dont let me log in, it says "Inicio de Sesion Fallido" ... I've been looking for a fix, before I come here, I was trying commands for Ubuntu and Mint, because of the lack of information about Peppermint on web pages but it doesn't work.. can someone tell me if that have any real solution? Or I have to reinstall Peppermint?

I had to install XFCE4 DE to access to my PC, but this is not a convenient solution .. is there any way to re-install the default Peppermint DE?  With XFCE I can log in, but I can't access to the session options in the menu (shutdown, restart, etc) I have now to do it manually using the terminal..

Hi ryos,

There is no single package "Peppermint DE" that can simply be installed. It is most probably best and easiest for you to add a logout button to the xfce4 panel.

That so sad, I dont want to reinstall peppermint and make all the changes that I've did, that is a lot of work ... I just install LXDE and I'm going to uninstall XFCE4.. perhaps it can solve something

I think it's because you replaced Nemo with Thunar. When I first started with Peppermint I deleted Nemo on Pepp 8 and replaced it with the newest version of Nemo and when I did a reboot I couldn't start Peppermint and had to reinstall it.
Once Peppermint, always Peppermint.

That have sense friend... I did it yesterday.. I deleted Nemo and installed Thunar ... Nemo cant handle well the amount of files (fotos, videos) that I use to work with.. Thunar is faster.. this is sad, I dont want to reinstall it  :( this is pretty stressing

A weird mix of LXDE, XFCE and with Openbox as Windows Manager ... PCmanFM is now the default instead of thunar ... I dont installed PCmanFM ..

Well, I'm reinstalling Peppermint ... this is a really bad situation .. if someone read this... DO NOT REMOVE NEMO ... just install what you want alongside.. that's all. Thanks.

Hi ryos,

Sorry, but I did not notice that you had removed nemo ... a serious mistake (by you and by me). Indeed, as Johan has stated, install another file manager (if you do not like nemo) but do NOT remove nemo. I personally do not use nemo, but it is still on my computer. I use SpaceFM and everything works just perfectly.  ;)

Hi Slim.Fatz

The good thing about this is that I learnt not to touch what peppermint have as default programs, some of them have libraries shared. I still can delete the ICE shortcuts LOL  :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

Im finnishing updating the system.. Ill install some additional programs and thats all (VLC, Thunar, Gthumb, Wine + Q4Wine, Gparted, Deadbeef, Virtualbox, LibreOffice..) without removing anything.

Is there any Peppermint IRC channel ? If there is any I'll install Hexchat too  ;D

Hi ryos,

I don't believe that there is a PeppermintOS IRC channel (anymore). It was attempted some years ago but fizzled. It was decided not to continue it because of several factors, such as the small size of Team Peppermint and because any issue that gets solved there (on IRC) is pretty much lost for others who might have the same issue later (unlike here on the forum where we have actually a huge database of solved issues -- one just needs to use the Search function to find the solutions).  ;)

Slim.Fatz  :)

You are right at that point, Im literally a Noob here, I have just 3 months using distros, Ive been in a lot of IRC channels so I get used to them, and its true, many problems that get solve vanish for new users and even for those that arent connected when the solution was given.. this seams to be more stable  ;) well If there is no IRC channel, Iĺl try to help here.
