although i havent even looked at or touched a windows computer (except to boot and immediately install linux) i have kept up on the news regarding HP keylogger "accident" of "mistakenly" leaving it on their synaptic keypad system though in the disabled mode or so they say...microcrap windbloes issued a "fix" for that last month...   https://fossbytes.com/check-remove-keylogger-hp-laptop/   ...so i guess that probably renders this into a moot issue at this time, but stay tuned, im sure there will be more to come...lol...DAMIEN

hi bgkidd...im using "timeshift" via disabling automatic snapshots since i do this manually once a week making my own on demand snapshot...be sure to go to the settings button and then to schedule and untick the scheduled snapshots as i find it excessive which is the reason i manually do this once a week...after that, go to users tab and click/tick to on all four boxes so as to have all home directories also included in the snapshot...works really easy and i tested the restore when i installed it and snapped a pic of system...worked perfectly...you will find "timeshift" in the repositories...enjoy...DAMIEN

Software & Applications / Re: Numix icon theme issue
« Last post by perknh on Today at 10:04:51 am »
Hi Picus. 

I didn't see your post here or I would have responded to you a long time ago.  I know Peppermint 8 Respin has Numix Square icons.  You go to:

Menu > Customize Look and Feel > Icon Theme

Then pick Numix Square, or whatever other of the 20 plus icon themes available. ;)

Installation / Re: PPM respin 12-08

I have come to the conclusion that it was user error. This was my first download using Firefox Quantum, and I when the download started I may not have hit save, and left the option as open. I downloaded another distro, on a different computer and set it to save , and no problem. But, being almost 80 years old, I suppose I'm entitled to an occasional  mistake.

Meant to reply to this one a while ago. Holding F2 from the very beginning was the answer. Only I have one of those annoying keyboards that makes you hold down another key to use the function keys, so that's why it didn't work initially maybe.

Computer is back up and running, by files are safe (as usual) but I'm still trying to find a decent backup solution so that I'm not always having to restore my software and reinstall all my applications. I'm going to try LuckyBackup with a formatted external hard drive and see if that works.

Thanks for all the feedback, everyone. Have since installed a 32-bit Peppermint on an old Vista laptop for a friend of mine and it works great! "Like new" she said.

Yep, if only Opera had an --app mode I'd consider bunging it in, but kinda pointless if it can't do SSB's :(

Ya gotta love Ray Bilcliff's photos though :o

You sure do, PCNetSpec.  They're the best.  ;)

coyote, it's nice seeing that Opera icon on the panel of your Peppermint 7 Respin screen shot.  Peppermint and Opera browser get along just fine. :)
