Yep, the update manager effectively runs:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
so with its default settings it will keep ALL packages (that were installed from the repos) up to date.

Neither LXDE or Xfce currently have any means of storing window position for applications.

Some applications themselves remember their own window position from the last time they were started .. but currently there's no way for the DE to remember them on a per application basis.

Thank you for your response, alynur. No, in answer to your question, setting one program as default is not at all what I am asking how to do. I do know how to change these, but because I code in HTML, I am constantly switching between having to open an HTML file with an editor like NotepadQQ, and then opening that file with a browser to see the results. This requires using the right-click menu to select the program that I want. The right-click menu is too full of programs that should not offer to open an HTML, and it takes a significant portion of my time trying to get to the program I want through all the clutter. I am looking for a way to manually edit the list of programs that appear in the right-click Open With... menu.

Hi kataclysm, welcome to Peppermint. What program will open a html file when you left click it? If that is not one of your prefered, you can right click, select Other programs, select the program you want and at the bottom of the window select Select as default and OK. That will set the selected program as the default. You can repeat the process selecting another program as default and the previous program will show up as a recommended program when you right click. Is that what you are interested in?
Installation / Re: Failed too mount (Live USB)

You said you have Lubuntu running. Is it based on Ubuntu 18.04 or 16.04?
Does any other distro boot? If so which?
Have you tried another usb?

It is based on 18.04 LTS
Yes, Xubuntu, Lubuntu they work fine
I have tried two other USB keys with the same result, the one I am using is working fine on my other PC

After answering pin's question above .. let's try creating a UEFI **ONLY** USB stick.

In your current Lubuntu, open Gparted and make sure the USB stick is formatted as a single FAT32 partition

If under the "Flags" column, "Boot" is not listed, right-click on the partition and select "Manage Flags" .. then put a tick in the "boot" checkbox

and click "Close"

Your single FAT32 partition should now list "Boot" in the "Flags" column

Exit Gparted.

Okay, now navigate to wherever you downloaded the Peppermint 9 64bit ISO image .. right-click on the Peppermint-9-20180621-amd64.iso file and select:-

Open With > Archive Manager

Highlight all the files/folders in the image below

and extract them to your USB stick.

At the end of the extraction you'll probably see this warning

You can safely ignore that, and click the "Close" button.

Okay now try booting from that USB stick in UEFI mode.

Did it boot ?

In short, if you extract the 64bit Peppermint ISO into a FAT32 USB stick that has the boot flag set, it should be possible to boot it on a UEFI system .. it will NOT however be bootable in Legacy BIOS mode (as GRUB wasn't written to the MBR).

It continues with the same error :/
New Users / Starting apps on the primary monitor
« Last post by arky217 on Today at 11:17:22 am »
On a dual monitor setup, I have monitor 1 as the primary monitor and the monitors are not mirrored.
When I start an app, it's anybody's guess on which monitor it will appear.
On some apps that start on monitor 2, when I drag them to monitor one and close
them there, the next time they will open on monitor 1.
Other apps that open on monitor 2 that I drag to and close on monitor 1,
they will always start on monitor 2.
It all seems completely random on which monitor an app will start on.

I would like all apps to start on monitor 1 and if I need an app on monitor 2,
I would drag it there.

So, is there any way to make an app always start on the primary monitor ?
