Title: Why Peppermint is not Published on AWS or Azure Market Place?
Post by: rajeev2631007 on April 17, 2018, 07:51:38 am
Hi,

I don't know Is it the right question to ask on Linux forum why it is not on Microsoft Azure Market Place?  I don't know what you people think about and your opinion on this topic. These days few Linux Distribution already published on Microsoft Azure or AWS Platform. In future Peppermint can be published on Azure or AWS. There is any ideological conflict or stand on this. Share your thought on this ....

No idealogical issue from my standpoint, but I have no idea how to get it on there .. I thought it was simply up to Microsoft which distros they support on Azure.

Hi PCNetSpecs,

Glad to hear PM9 on the way......  :)

When people will get this New PM9 release to download? Is it based on 17.04 or 18.04?

I request you please do something to resolve two bugs which is given below:-

1.  To Disable and Set a Delay on a Laptop's Touchpad While Typing

2.  Lot of new laptop facing issue with right click issue on Touch pad in 16.04  (PM8)

Few suggestion you may want to consider

I  understand that Peppermint is minimal Distro and it is great that way. But Are you Planning to  improve Peppermint repository to add more popular and most demanded software and utilities which can't  be Pre-install in Distro. So user will not require to add Third party or unknown PPA to install software or other one or two click  mechanism  to do the same.

Easy way to mount SMB  share (Windows Network Share folder) with new OS like windows 2012 or Windows 7 onward. Because Microsoft disable SMBv1 or SMBv2 by default in their OS. So Nemo Server connect and gigolo software application stop working with Windows shares or give issues and FSTAB method syntax change with every release. And its stop working.

There should be something in Peppermint control Panel to manage and install fonts in peppermint. 

It is just suggestion if it is fit along with you goals then do something otherwise ignore it.

Rajeev Gautam
