So the best way to check for updates is in the terminal? sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade But this is not done automatically. You have to check for updates manually, but this way is mentioned in video's I have seen as the best way anyway to check for updates.

So if I understand it correctly 2 Peppermints? One based on Ubuntu and one based on Debian? I know nothing about development. I'm just a user.

@johan most of the pep way of things are finished. I.e most of the skinned stuff you see in pep 10 is finished.

Hmmm, in the beginning alot of folks stood up to help, but I guess with life and stuff not a lot of that came to fruition.  So only a very few actual devs stuck around. And between full-time work and free time I suppose is one big reason, things take time plus creating base line documents as we go through the process to have a sound foundation for future peps... ;).

Calamares actually has better documentation.... That's why... Ubiquity although easy enough to configure...it was the lack of documentation, at first...then the other thing, being dependent on Ubuntu...once we broke from that ubiquity was not needed. Now instead of casper etc the Debian live build  / wrapper tools are used.

Mint-update.....hmmmm this is an odd thing isn't it.... Pep 10 is based on Ubuntu but depends on Linux mint to categorize, it's updates...now you're dependent on. Two distros for something not just one  ???..... If any of those two change something it most definitely will affect peppermintOS.

I dunno it doesn't really leave much wiggle room for pep to make its own development decisions...

I think the idea is........ instead of being a skinned Ubuntu basically, getting pep less dependent on things will help innovation and give it..... it's own ground to stand on.

All in all building a pathway to give an option to get away from the Ubuntu eco system I guess you could say adds to the time as well.  ;)

Hope this help you  ;D
Yes it did thanks. To be honest that is the biggest downside of Peppermint. And now that Mark Greaves is gone developement takes even longer now. Personal live should always come first I know. I don't know if I go with something else yet because time is a factor, not only now, but also for further releases. But for now Pepp 10 is still supported till 2023.

@darknet: If they dump systemD you can't play certain games because they depend on system according to English Bob :-\

@grafiksinc: You already answered some. What is finished for instance and a reason why it's  not released yet? Why Calamares and not Ubiquity installer? Mint update works perfect. Please keep it.

@timehunter: It would be nice though if they gave us an update on the developement of Peppermint 11.

I remember I had the same problem once when I disabled secure boot to enable proprietry drivers when installing Peppermint 9 Respin. When I rebooted after install was finished I got the same black screen with only flashing cursor. Installed it with secure boot enabled and when I rebooted I could log in.

I never do it that way. I always install the latest release. I treid to upgrade Peppermint 10 Respin from Bionic Beaver to Focal Fossa the Debian way and for me it didn't work that well. It upgraded to Focal Fossa, but Peppermint PPA was gone, icons were gone in Nemo, only O's instead of for instance the house icon for Home.
