Software & Applications / Ranger File Manager
« on: March 03, 2017, 06:02:32 am »
Ranger is a fast, non-gui file manager that runs in your terminal.  While it's nothing new I've only recently discovered it and begun to use it and like it quite a bit.  I thought some of you might like to check it out.  If so...

Software & Applications / ICE_Iridium?
« on: February 17, 2017, 08:54:47 am »
Hi Folks,
Does anybody know how to get SSBs to open with Iridium (browser)?  I tried the instructions below (FROM HERE) for Vivaldi using Iridium in the place of Vivaldi and while the tic shows up in ICE it is not highlighted (not usable).  I'm guessing something has to be changed in the ICE program configuration itself.  Any ideas?




User Submitted Tutorials / How to Open the Terminal
« on: February 14, 2017, 07:52:27 pm »
Quite often in seeking support on a Linux forum you will be asked to supply system information by running commands in the terminal.  The terminal can also be used to call up programs, run updates & upgrades, troubleshoot your system and a host of other functions (see THIS for a few basic commands).  But in order to use the terminal you have to know how to call it up and many people new to Linux will not always know how to do that.  The following tutorial is designed to show new users how to accomplish this task.

The default terminal emulator in PeppermintOS 7 is Sakura.  You can call it up in a variety of ways. 

1) The simplest way is to click on the terminal icon in your panel.

2) Another method is to use the Ctrl, Alt and t keys combination.  Press Ctrl + Alt + t simultaneously and the terminal will appear. 

3) Using Alt + f2 and entering sakura will also call up the terminal.

4) You can also bring up the terminal by navigating menu > Accessories > Terminal

The terminal will open with a command prompt.  For example: mac@laptop ~ $ _.  Simply enter your command behind the prompt.  For example: mac@laptop ~ $ inxi -F.  Then press your enter key to run the command.  Results can be copied and then pasted in the forum.

Hi Folks,
If you need / use / like todo lists HERE'S one you might be interested in.  It's only available as a web app for Linux now, though.  I serve it up w/ ICE.   ;)


General Discussion / Vivaldi
« on: January 30, 2017, 05:15:59 am »
Hi Folks,
You might want to take a look at Vivaldi browser  It was created by the developer of Opera (recently sold) and built on Chrome except it doesn't collect your information and call home.  I've been kicking the tires on it and bit and like it very well, thus far.  Tons of features.

General Discussion / I'm just sayin'...

Folks, you will be hard pressed to find anybody on any other forum willing to go the distance to answer your questions and resolve your issues as PCNetSpec does as a matter of course.  We're fortunate to have him here and I hope you appreciate him and his efforts.....even if he is still a cheeky git.  >:D

Well, enough of that!   I'm just sayin'......
