I am not really a Numix fan and the Peppermix sets did not  sit well for me either  ;)
So I been trying different icons on and off for the past few months.
I  I finally found a set that I like and I think really goes well with the Peppermint Dark theme. :D

I can't speak to any of that but IMO the simplest thing would be to back them up, reformat as ext4 and copy them there.

"... there are around a billion people on Earth above the advisable weight range."

Wow!  That's about 1 in 7 of us. :o

795 million people in the world do not have enough food to lead a healthy active life.

So the average weight should be healthy ;)

Yes, indeed. ;)

Stumbled upon this today.

spence, if your files are on an NTFS partition I'm not sure you can set the permissions the way you want them.

I don't have the energy to follow up on this today, but will remind everyone... ALL of my .txt files used to open in the way I wanted them to, with a double left click on my mouse... never mattered what the format of the disks was, nor whether located on USB sticks, SDCards, external USB NAS storage drives, nor which dual booted system I was using when I first began dual booting WinXP and peppermintOne from 2010 until just a few months ago...

something has changed and I don't know what it is... it's a minor time wasting annoyance, but I'd like to track it down eventually...

Sincerest Apologies offered once again to PCNetSpec for my "where is it" befuddlement yesterday... #brainrecoverynotfinishedapparently...  off to run errands now

Adding Gnome is possible, but I wouldn't suggest it, and I'm a GS fanboi.  No reason to reinvent the wheel.

If you like the look n' feel of Peppermint OS, but you want a modern Gnome UI, the best path would probably be to multi-boot it with something like Korora Xfce;)

Only thin Americans I know, back home, are meth addicts

LOL, we Brits are quickly moving in that direction too .. don't remember seeing many fat people in the 70's/80's/90's, totally different story now :(

Stumbled upon this today.  It seems to fit right in with the two strands of this discussion.

I know you can't do everything here, VinDSL, but if you can visit a few places:  Mont Royal is gorgeous, then there's Old Montreal, China Town, and then there are numerous street markets that sell churned honey --which is delicious. ;)

SHhhhhhhh ... don't tell anyone.  I'm in a board meeting right now.   ;D

I walked to Old Montreal and China Town via the 'Underground City' Saturday & Sunday.  Got 15 more miles to explore underground.

I'll probably go to Mont Royal via Grey Line [tour bus] tomorrow.  2-day unlimited pass is $55 CAD.  Beats taxi prices.
