General Discussion / Changing DE
« on: June 24, 2018, 10:28:43 am »
i see that there's a lot of Desktop Environments in the Linux World and that's great because it gives users the advantage of choice.
i toyed around with some distros on VBox and i liked the Deepin DE so i wanted to know if i could install it on Pmint 8 ? is it possible and if it is then can these changes break the system ?

Hardware / [SOLVED] Screen shifted to the left
« on: June 24, 2018, 02:05:06 am »
some days ago i installed Pmint 8 on my friend's computer and i noticed the screen is shifted to the left (about 1/10 of screen's size) when it's set at 1366x768 Resolution (default resolution), it comes back to normal if i choose the other resolution available which is 1024x768. I tried other Distros like : Mx Linux 17.x, Xubuntu 18.04, Manjaro 17.1.10 but the same problem appears with every distro.
Is there a way to manually shift/set the screen back to normal ?

Software & Applications / XAMPP & "MySQL"
« on: February 10, 2018, 05:30:58 am »
I'm actually using Xampp on Peppermint 8. It's interface is showing "MySQL Database running" but in reality Pmint8 is using MariaDB and not MySQL.
i'm trying to install and USE MySQL instead of MariaDB (if it requires completely deleting MariaDB i'm fine with it as long as it doesn't cause any problem)
i tried to find the solution on the net but there are too many ways and it's a bit confusing.
Do you know a "clean" way that allows me to use real MySQL in xampp instead of MariaDB ?

Software & Applications / MySql Workbench [Ubuntu - Peppermint] [SOLVED]
« on: December 22, 2017, 04:21:16 am »
Yesterday i downloaded My SQL Workbench from the official website, i choosed the Ubuntu 16.04 Release and yet when i try to run it it shows me this "warning" msg :
You are running Workbench on an unsupported operating system. While it may work for you just fine, it wasn't designed to run on your platform. Please keep this in mind if you run into problems.

I guess it's because Peppermint 8 isn't recognised as Ubuntu 16.04 or something in these lines ?

anyway the software seems working just fine, just a little incompatibility problem because Peppermint seems to run MariaDB when the software is designed to run MySQL but i only need it for basic Database manipulation which seems to run just fine atm.

Software & Applications / Whisker menu Settings [SOLVED]
« on: December 20, 2017, 09:52:53 am »
I installed recently Menu libre and just wanted to add a new game entry to my menu, added the game entry and saved and now i'm left with my whisker menu with only the favourite, recently used, all and games sections... everything else disappeared (preferences, system tools...etc)
I tried to reset the Peppermint Default desktop but i didn't bring them back...
Is there any mean to get back to my old settings ?

Artwork, Themes, and Icons / Looking for a glass looking gtk theme
« on: December 01, 2017, 11:26:58 am »
i'm looking for a glass looking theme, i like transparency looking themes overall but i cannnot find one that works for me  :-\
Anyone using/knows any glass looking theme ? ( Pmint 8 default configuration, using Gtk 3.18 )

I want to be able to turn off the screen with a keyboard shortcut  without putting it to sleep or suspend it.
i tried to assign a shortcut to this command :
Code: [Select]
xset dpms force offfor example Ctrl + Alt + S.
But i noticed that when i press the shortcut one time then my screen turns off and then turn on right after.
I tried "holding" the sortcut for 1sec and it works (screen stays turned off) but i still don't understand what's happening here...

is there a shortcut that can work normally?

EDIT : while my screen is turned off, VLC media player is running playing music.

Hardware / Fan goes full speed after a Suspend
« on: October 09, 2017, 12:37:35 pm »
just noticed this, my fan goes full speed after i suspend my laptop (CPU usage at 1%)

Code: [Select]
sensors :
Adapter: Virtual device
fan1:        5000 RPM

Adapter: PCI adapter
temp1:            N/A  (crit = +120.0°C, hyst = +90.0°C)

Adapter: ISA adapter
Package id 0:  +47.0°C  (high = +87.0°C, crit = +105.0°C)
Core 0:        +42.0°C  (high = +87.0°C, crit = +105.0°C)
Core 1:        +43.0°C  (high = +87.0°C, crit = +105.0°C)

it does it everytime, tried to suspend after a reboot and everytime my fan goes full speed, it stops eventually after a while and goes full speed again if i do anything.

To sum it up: My fan acts normally on a fresh boot, he goes crazy after a suspend.
Any idea on how to solve this ?

Software & Applications / Lightweight WebBrowser and Extension support
« on: October 07, 2017, 06:16:29 am »
i'm searching for a fast & lightweight web browser (like Palemoon and otter) that can support Firefox/Chrome extensions. I've been using palemoon for a while but the lack of of extension support is a big handicap (no Ublock origin...etc).

Software & Applications / Gtk theme difference between users [SOLVED]
« on: October 06, 2017, 01:39:38 pm »
I've been toyin around with gtk themes (mainly changing some CSS properties in the Gtk 3.0 CSS folder of the themes), after a while i chose a theme, after applying it, i noticed that there are some elements of a previous theme that doesn't want to change (especially the progress bar under the FIle System folder in the nemo sidebar). I only see the "true style" of the theme when i open the file manager as root, so i guess the system is handling the themes differently between root and "Ly" user which is very annoying...
I didn't modify any global property, only gtk 3.0 css file of each theme.
Any idea about how to go back to normal ?

Software & Applications / Sakura (Terminal) window position [SOLVED]
« on: October 05, 2017, 09:13:30 am »
the terminal used to appear at the center of the screen until yesterday, now when i click on terminal it appears at the center left part of the screen which is a bit annoying because i have to move it everytime i open it.
I didn't customize the terminal in anyway (default Pmint 8 settings) and i checked the peppermint control celter in the "advanced" tab i have the "by default place windows" option checked to place the new windows at the center (for ex :  Peppermint control center is working).
Any idea on how to  make it behave like it used to be ?  :-\

Just noticed that the checkboxes are missing on the Numix theme
is the problem related to my Gtk version ? 3.18 atm

Software & Applications / Kdevelop IDE complete removal [SOLVED]
« on: September 12, 2017, 09:15:19 am »
just installed this IDE following the instruction on this link
and ran the command :
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install kdevelopwas expecting Kdevelop 5 but got Kdevelop 4. anyway now i just want to uninstall it completely. I went into Synaptic package manager, searched for the "kdevelop" keyword and deleted the 3 instances that appeared to be installed on my system.
However i still got 3 shortcuts on the whisker menu
-Kdevelop 4, Kdevelop 4 (pick session) and KApp Template
Only KApp Templateis still working though.

this never happened with previous uninstallation of softwares using Synaptic (also , when installing it took like 410Mb of space and when uninstalling those 3 instances it removed 23Mb only, i guess there's still some files somewhere...)

I searched kapp template on Synaptic and removed it, now all the icons from the whisker menu disapeared but i'm wondering if there any residual files in the system.
