Software & Applications / Re: Firejail - Pepp 8 issues
« Last post by Bigoeuf on Today at 05:19:29 am »
Yes, simply changing that section in disable-common.inc to?:-
Code: [Select]
..........
# system directories
blacklist /sbin
blacklist /usr/local/sbin
# blacklist /usr/sbin
..........
Would have negated the need for ANY other changes.
...................


Yes I agree that would be the case BUT that would be pretty much system-wide for any application launched under Firejail as, from what I have seen, they all include the disable-common.inc settings in their Firejail profiles & not blacklisting /usr/sbin for them would be neither necessary or desirable.
So, IMHO, I suggest if anyone did want blacklist /usr/sbin for the purpose of using firefox system-wide under Firejail with light-theme enforced by Firefox Themer to do as I have stated in my last post.

I tried 'noblacklist /usr/sbin' and 'noblacklist /usr/sbin'/firefox' .. but for me they didn't work, only removing the blacklist of /usr/sbin itself seemed to work .. YMMV.

Yes Mark I am having difficulty getting just /usr/sbin/firefox not to be blacklisted - I may tinker a bit more & may ask over on the Firejail forum to see if it can be done  ;)  - I don't really like having the whole /usr/sbin/ unblacklisted (maybe a bit paranoid ey??  ::) )

Anyway I'll mark this as solved now as there is a workable solution & once again Mark cheers for your help  :)

What are you running Peppermint on? / Re: Dell Dimension 4600

And after all that discussion about the installer not even running in 256MB, their minimum spec still quotes 256MB ::) .. it seems a bit dishonest to me to tuck the fact the installer actually requires 1GB, (be that real RAM or swap space) as a note further down the page.

 :o I was really surprised... You get the feeling that they were going to update the wiki  :-\ But, they have just added the result of the discussion as a footnote  :o

I mean, one tab of firefox on a newspaper's page eats about 700MB, so what is one expecting with 256MB of RAM  8)

 >:( I totally agree... is misleading... but, really in which planet do people live if they are expecting to run something on less than 1GB of RAM, year 2018??

Side note: Opened a daily newspaper having U-block-origin on the other day... 71 adds blocked  :o... <1GB RAM? I don't think so... you can look at the menu and maybe run the file manager and have a look at the color of the folders  :D

VinDSL,

You keep peaking my interest to really work on my father-in-law's computer and to see what I can get it to do.

PCnetSpec,

You are so right about the ram specs.  Though Peppermint runs on the 4600 Chromium chugs along because there is only 1gig of ram in it.  It's great that Peppermint is touted to be one of the top OSes because it's lightweight but it doesn't get enough credit to being a all round great operating system.  My machine could handle Gnome or KDE with out a hick up.  I run Peppermint for basically 2 reasons.  1) To quote English Bob, "It just runs." 2) Great support.  I've learned and been helped so much through this forum.  You and your team are great. 

Boy, I never thought I could get a nice chain going from a post.  I hope to be chatting with you guys often.

Father's Day can't come fast enough to get my Peppermint clothing.

Be Well, all!

Software & Applications / Removing Stubborn Files(SOLVED)
« Last post by alynur on April 18, 2018, 09:21:35 pm »
Hello Peppermint people. I just used youtube-dl to download an album from Youtube and for some unknown reason youtube-dl downloaded a bunch of album related Frag files along with the finished album. Now I can't remove those friggin Frag files,  ;D. How do I get rid of these things? Thanks guys.

EDIT: never mind, the files disappeared after I closed and reopened file manager.

Oh, my.  Streams YT vids in 720p HD - no lagginess - same as my daily driver.

Not bad for a 14 year-old Dell PCI-only desktop box. YaY Peppermint!

Can't remember what this thing had in it originally - single stick, 128 or 256MB - too lazy to dig it out of the pile. It would boot up winders XP Pro and Peppermint OS just fine.

However, open up a modern browser and you might as well go make a pot of coffee while you're waiting for the display to populate. Click on something, and it's lunchtime.

!GB RAM was waaaay better - again - until you opened a browser window.

2GB works fine, all the way around. Add a SSD, and a 2 core processor, and it totally usable and liveable.

I don't think those specs you mentioned are fooling anyone. Just makes them look foolish IMO.

Anyway, the i386/32bit 4.16.2 kernel booted normally, and is humming right along.

I'm not expecting any probs - although, if I wanted to do it right, I probably should roll my own.

That's not why I built this machine though, you know?

BTW, if anyone cares, it's booting about 4/10ths of a sec slower. I can live with that, too ...

Code: [Select]
vindsl@Fenris ~ $ systemd-analyze time

Heh! Before someone beats me to the punch ... I should have said 2 thread CPU. It's still a single core processor, with 2 threads AKA Hyper-Threading AKA HT  ;)

But my point really is nobody should quote the minimum required for the OS on its own to run (in which case we could easily and truthfully quote  < 384MB) or worse, the minimum physical RAM you can get away with if you include a swap partition.  They should be quoting "at least 1GB" simply because a user will find the system pretty useless with anything less.

So they should stop misleading the poor unsuspecting user who thinks they're going to use Linux to liven up their 256MB system .. they are not.

What Bodhi **should** be doing is quoting 1GB, and (if they want) making the note further down the page contain additional info that it can **technically** be installed in 256MB if you jump through some hoops, but there's little point if you actually expect to be able to do anything with the system.

It seems everyone is afraid to raise their quoted minimums for fear of not comparing well to the rubbish everyone else is quoting .. but all that's doing is leaving the poor user mislead into a situation where they're wiping their system, and/or wasting their time in a futile hope.

Just stop it .. if enough distros are realistic with their quoted minimums it'll be the few that mislead that become the shame .. be realistic with prospective users, don't just compete for lowest quoted minimums that make no sense in the real world.
