Okay, if I had to guess, I'd guess the installer is referencing lsb_release to get information about the distro (so it knows how to install itself)

if you run (as the installer probably is)
Code: [Select]
lsb_release -ayou'll see output like
Code: [Select]
Distributor ID: Peppermint
Description: Peppermint 10 Ten
Release: 10
Codename: bionic
Now it's possible to change this to the Ubuntu output in that terminal session by running
Code: [Select]
export LSB_ETC_LSB_RELEASE=/etc/upstream-release/lsb-releasenow if you (in the same terminal session) run
Code: [Select]
lsb_release -aagain, you'll now see
Code: [Select]
Distributor ID: Ubuntu
Description: Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS
Release: 18.04
Codename: bionic
which is probably what the installer is looking for.

So open a terminal, and run:
Code: [Select]
export LSB_ETC_LSB_RELEASE=/etc/upstream-release/lsb-releaseand now in the SAME terminal session, try running the installer again.



The other option is to either ask the ROS developers to add "Peppermint|peppermint" as an available detected OS and treat it the same as "Ubuntu|ubuntu" .. or modify the installer yourself.
