I found Peppermint (with ICE) while looking for a more versatile version of Chrome OS. I had tried at least a half-dozen distros previously and found P-Mint superior to all of them. I would recommend PM to anyone with an older computer or anyone unhappy with Windows 10. I personally have no gripe with Win10, but cannot run it on my old gasoline-powered netbook. It runs P8 happily and I will probably convert to P10 when the respin comes out shortly.

I found this page valuable when using P8. See if you can install the Broadcom driver that you need.  https://askubuntu.com/questions/55868/installing-broadcom-wireless-drivers
If you are using a newer version of Peppermint, I'm surprised it did not connect automatically.

General Discussion / Re: Removing Tor Browser

I "test drove" Tor and found it wasn't for me. I followed the instructions above and Tor was removed. However, it is still listed in my menu under "Internet" . How do I remove it? I am running Peppermint 8.

Did you try sudo apt autoremove?

Tor was removed but I still have the shortcut under Menu/Internet.

UPDATE: Solved, using Settings/Menu editor

Tangentially relevant -
I've been using PMint since 7 (Using 8 now - will upgrade to 10 soon (or 11 if I like it better)).
I try other distros as they are recommended for older computers. I have found nothing that touches PMint (Linux Lite comes closest. )
Didn't care much for 9, but 10 is excellent.

Software & Applications / Re: ICE and Firefox variants?

I'm a long time Pale Moon user. I have no problem using Firefox for ICE sites. I just use FF for nothing else (unless PM or Chromium fail me).

My mouth has gotten me into trouble too many times.

I nearly wrote that as "my mouth has bitten me in the ass too many times" but upon reflection....

There's something zen about that...

I join you all in sympathy!

...She just won't consider changing at all. But I won't deny she takes good care of me so I just do what I must to keep her happy.

Pepp On everybody!  :D

Well done .. wish I could talk my missus into Linux, but she just won't have it ::)

There's absolutely nothing she does that requires Windows, but she still won't swap :(
(I've realised it's easier to just resign myself to the fact I'll never be 100% Windows support free)

Same here with the g/f. Her netbook has Windows 7. Instead of using P9 (which I installed), she got a new laptop with Win 10.
If you ever persuade your wife, please share how you did it.

Peppermint 7 will not be supported indefinitely. That being said, it is a pain to upgrade.
THAT being said, P10, IMHO is a marked improvement over 9. I am currently using P8. If P11 is a similar step up, I will upgrade to it when it becomes available. If not, P10.

There were a few more alternative wallpapers that got kinda half developed, I may post those in due course for people to play with.

Now I'm curious,

Nice .. after looking at most of the reviews it seems that 'alternative' wallpaper is possibly more popular than the default...


Count me in as preferring the alternate.

18.04 is the right base for Peppermint 10. Here is the page with links to .deb packages if the repo isn't working.

https://software.opensuse.org/download.html?project=home:stevenpusser&package=palemoon#directUbuntu

Could not get the repository to work but had sucess with the .deb package. Thanks!

There are several sets of instructions under "Ubuntu". Which do I use? I tried the instructions under "Ubuntu 18.04" but my laptop will not update the repository.

Software & Applications / Install pale moon browser in P10 (Solved)

Pale Moon is my favorite browser. I have installed it in P8 and P9, but either I forgot how or the method has changed. How do I install it in P10?
