This happened when I ran the nemo editor but I have seen with other commands.  A long time ago when I created the image I may have done too much in cleaning up un-needed files to strip down the size of the OS.

Soon as I can figure out how to attach a picture of the errors I will do so.  There were 9 errors total before the command prompt returned.

The first of the 9 errors was:

(nemo:2217):  Gtk-CRITICAL  **:  21:43:46.666:  gtk_widget_get_mapped:  assertion 'GTK_IS_WIDGET (widget)' failed

Hi ssybesma,

This error is totally insignificant and can be safely ignored;)   Unfortunately however, I have no knowledge about how to remove it.  ::) If you are into programming then this article does give information about the source of the problem and how to eliminate it.

As for your other errors, I have nothing to say since my magic crystal ball suddenly stopped working.


Regards,

I saw that earlier...thanks though.  I'm not a programmer.

I'm debating whether I should create a new image with Peppermint 10 or upgrade from 9 to 10 at the command line.

I've got 12 Intel Compute Sticks to do that for...I may just start fresh with a brand new PMintOS image.

I use those ICSes to run mprime.

Do you know if there is such a thing as an image builder for Peppermint OS where I can go through and remove apps and other stuff that I don't need to save space and memory?

Hi ssybesma,

I remember reading about an app that you can use to edit an ISO for a distro, but I cannot remember the name of it. If my old grey matter happens to gain speed and I find it then I'll get back to this thread and give you the info.  :P

The application to remaster an ISO from the Ubuntu family could possibly be Cubic.

Thanks for the reference...all my normal workstations are Windows so I will need to breakdown finally and buy an inexpensive dedicated Linux PC.
My 12 Linux 'stick' PCs are all single purpose with low system resources and wouldn't work for this.  Will definitely pursue this!!!  Thanks again!!!

There are alternatives to purchasing a dedicated Linux PC (although a dedicated Linux PC would be ideal)

(a)    Dual Boot
(b)    More interesting as follows (assuming one of your Windows devices is reasonably powerful)

Download Ubuntu 20.04
Prepare a USB stick with persistence storage
Boot into the Ubuntu USB
Install Cubic
Run Cubic using your Peppermint ISO as a base to remaster

Cubic may well install in a live Peppermint session - you'll have to experiment.
There are plenty of internet guides to explain live persistent sessions and also guides for the use of Cubic.

I've only run Cubic within Ubuntu therefore something unexpected may occur...........?

Anyway, it could be fun and I look forward to reading your results in a new thread.

I think I might even try it myself in a live Peppermint environment.
