Yeah, I could never figure out how to say it either.  Weird spelling.  Not even everyone on that page said it the same way.   ::)

I usually just listen to music on my phone or tablet, or I open Pandora in a web browser.

Still?  As in, implying that one ever used it in the first place?  ???

Steve Ballmer ?

That was my thought, even though he's not CEO anymore.  He made enough stupid decisions during his time there to make you think he eats paste. (Windows 8, anyone?)

Sadly, that's not IE.  That's a Microsoft executive.  :o

That's too small.  My phone is almost that big.  Plus, it comes with Debian and is ARM based.  So, no Peppermint.  :o

Software & Applications / Re: xflock4 clock settings

I wasn't able to find a lot for settings with i3lock.  It's a very basic screen lock.  Of course, you can always replace it with another screen locker, such as light locker, which has a handy settings panel.

Peppermint 7 & 8 use i3lock,  not xflock4.  As for changing the clock setting, I don't know how to do that.

1. Update (always #1)
2. Drivers (GPU and CPU)
3. Remove Chromium, install Firefox (Firefox works with Netflix, BTW)
4. Install other software I like, and other personal tweaks

Really, my post install changes aren't a lot, at least not as far as things to remove.  The distro comes pretty barebones, which is a main reason I've always liked it.

To ensure nothing is left behind, it's always best to copy any files you want to keep to a partition or drive that won't be used and format any partitions you plan to use for the installation.

Installation / Re: Installing P8. Just Ruminating.

As long as P6 is still bootable, you shouldn't have any issues getting the P8 .iso file onto a USB drive using the USB Image Writer.

If this issue is sufficiently solved, as it appears to be, please edit your original post and add this to the title:

(Solved)

If you haven't done this by tonight, I'll do it for you.

Well, I removed KaOS.  I'm sure it's a nice enough distro, if you don't mind limitations.  Since they have no 32-bit software at all, apps with 32-bit dependencies won't even work right.  That includes WINE, so obviously not a project aimed at Windows users.

Speaking of WINE, I had a pretty big mess in my Peppermint install between WINE and POL.  I could have cleaned it all out, but I decided a reinstall is faster, and it gets rid of my GOG games too.  I hav a dedicated gaming machine, so I don't need that stuff on my desktop.

It should be exactly the same, unless you changed something.

So does anyone have a way to install the Peppermint desktop(LXDE I think?) and its default themes as if I just reinstalled the OS? 

It's not LXDE, unless you're running a pretty old version of Peppermint.  The default desktop for the past few versions is actually a hybrid desktop, a mix of elements from different desktops.  Thus, there's no meta package to reinstall the desktop, as there is with distributions like Mint, Ubuntu, etc.  Though, even with those you usually lose the custom themes, etc. and go back to the barebones desktop.

Awaiting peer review.

I used to have that.  Peppermint pretty much cured me.  ;)
