General Discussion / Linux Applications - A good read
« Last post by grafiksinc on Today at 06:06:53 pm »
Ran across this today, - I know I sure do miss a few packages that have went the way of electron or flatpak.  Some days you feel like you see less and less .deb packages around. Which is sad because in some cases I feel like the quality has gone down much in the way it happened when you saw the over-saturation of mobile applications. :(

Software & Applications / Re: VLC PLAYER change to black
« Last post by 11ryanc on Today at 05:50:20 pm »
I suggest giving GNOME MPV a look. It integrates well with most GTK 3 themes, including Pepirus. Default keybindings sheet: https://www.cheatography.com/someone/cheat-sheets/mpv-media-player/
I initially used Totem and X-Player, but support for stylized/ASS subtitles was kinky at best. VLC was VLC (for better or worse, you be the judge)
You can disable the gnome headerbars as shown below:

Software & Applications / Re: x11vnc autostart problems
« Last post by PCNetSpec on Today at 04:49:40 pm »
Have you tried creating a systemd unit file to start it as a service .. as in the second half of this :
http://www.wolffhaven45.com/linux/x11vnc-server-installation-ubuntu-16-04-xenial-xerus/

[EDIT]

Obviously change the
ExecStart=
line to your command (without the 'sudo'

[EDIT2]

Another option might be to create a .desktop launcher that runs your command (without 'sudo') in
/etc/xdg/autostart

I'm not sure this would be simple without adding Qt themeing support .. earlier versions of VLC could be told to use the GTK theme .. they removed this option in recent versions.

Software & Applications / Re: x11vnc autostart problems
« Last post by rpbuman on Today at 04:28:45 pm »
the best instructions I found for a simple install were by Rahul K at: https://tecadmin.net/setup-x11vnc-server-on-ubuntu-linuxmint/#
Once installed, there is also a manual startup command which works fine:
"sudo x11vnc -auth guess -forever -loop -noxdamage -repeat -rfbauth /home/{YOUR USER NAME HERE}/.vnc/passwd -rfbport 5900 -shared"

I have had repeated success installing from the main instructions but have not been able to get an autostart procedure that works for Peppermint.

For now, I use Google Chrome and Chrome Remote Desktop if I absolutely need to get in and start up the VNC, but since the Peppermint server is less than 25 feet away, seems silly to go across the internet to connect... Just sayin'...

Development / Re: Request for help with translations for ICE
« Last post by PCNetSpec on Today at 04:26:31 pm »
Okay it's done and on github.
https://github.com/peppermintos/ice

If anyone wants to test it, I've attached a .deb below which currently has en/fr/jp/nl/pl/pt_BR/pt_PT/sv translations .. so if your system is using any of those languages/locales ICE should automagically be translated.
(just download it, and double-click to install)

I'll add others as they're submitted, or if they're not I'll just have to do my best with Google Translate (though I'd rather not)nearer the PM9 release.

MANY, MANY thanks to those who've helped so far :)

Software & Applications / Re: Error Message re "handles"

Ok, I tried 2 other kernels, 4.10s, with no change. Just for grins I also tried with other programs, gthumb, Gimp, even Opera, and same thing. Installed a different file manager, PCman, still didn't work. PeppermintOS suddenly doesn't like my Samsung phone.

Thx! That explains it.

It looks great! I hope you do get several more languages in.
