With a heavy heart I unfortunately have to inform you that Mark is no longer with us. Shane and I received word from one of Mark's sons that he passed away this morning after a 10 day hospital stay. Mark was among the best of us. His contributions to both Peppermint and to the desktop Linux world as a whole are incalculable and he will be sorely missed.

There are many unanswered questions at the moment and I'll try to be diligent in relaying relevant information. The future is unwritten, but for now let's collectively take some time to remember Mark, reflect on his contributions, and appreciate his patience, sense of community, and passion for his work that made him not only a great project lead, but a great person as well.

Thank you.

Hello all.

Just a quick reminder to everyone that when you have a resolution to your issue, please edit the post title to mark the problem as (SOLVED). We ask that you do this for a few reasons.

  • People volunteering support can skip over a solved problem in order to focus on unresolved issues.
  • Users looking for a solution to the same problem or a similar one can know to look in your post.
  • When someone performs a web search for the problem, they'll know which posts they can go to for accurate information.
  • Forum mods and admins can more easily archive and/or catalog properly labeled posts.

We're here to help so please help us to better help you by keeping things clean and organized.

Thanks a bunch.

Development / New version of Ice for testing.
« on: April 07, 2014, 01:41:34 pm »
Hello all,

Ice as it has been for the past few years was written in Python 2 with GTK+2 as the gui framework. Anyway, today I went ahead and ported it to Python 3 and GTK+3. It tests well as far as I can see, but there are probably a few things I'm missing here and there so I'm posting the package here for any brave souls who dare install it. There are no new or different features at this point, rather it's just a straight port to the new Python and GTK+ versions. In fact probably 85% of the code is just copied and pasted from the old version.

Anyway, here it is. Standard disclaimers apply:

Development / Anyone do any Wordpress plugin development?
« on: March 28, 2014, 01:25:30 pm »
Just curious if anyone here does any Wordpress theme or plugin development. I do a bit of custom plugin work when I need to for clients and I've just decided to start pushing a couple of them to Github for the rest of the world to see/use should they care to. If anyone is interested:

https://github.com/kendalltristan/custom-contact-fields -- Custom Contact Fields does exactly what it sounds like: it adds custom contact fields to user profiles and optionally requires them during registration.

https://github.com/kendalltristan/restrict-backend-content -- Restrict Backend Content restricts less privileged users to only be able to see their own content and uploads in the admin dashboard (why this option doesn't exist by default will eternally baffle me).

Artwork, Themes, and Icons / I need an artist ( repost )
« on: March 25, 2014, 12:26:13 pm »
Sure. Post it here and let me know exactly what dimensions you want.

Also, for new questions, please start a new topic so it doesn't get super confusing.  ;)

General Discussion / Forum look and feel.
« on: March 24, 2014, 07:29:29 am »
Per a few requests I've started messing with the forum CSS ("cascading style sheets" for those who don't know) in order to make it less harsh on the eyes. It was previously quite bright so I've tried to tone it down a notch. Please give me some feedback and let me know if there are any elements that need fixing. For example, some of the buttons don't show up as well right now so I'm going to work on those next.

Development / What is everyone working on right now?
« on: March 22, 2014, 11:37:23 pm »
Just thought I'd ask to see what everyone is working on at the moment.

Personally, I'm re-exploring Django, but this time with Twitter's Bootstrap framework for the frontend just to see what I can put together. I made a relatively simple blogging platform tonight just to see what it would look like. I think I'm going to keep on experimenting for a while as I quite enjoy Django development and I'm loving Bootstrap's short design time and quick deployment.



EDIT: Yes I'm using Ubuntu right now. I tend to always use it the last couple of months before a Peppermint release just to see if there are any particularly good ideas lurking around anywhwere.
