New Users / Icon Location
« on: February 09, 2020, 09:28:00 pm »
I just re-installed Peppermintos 10 Respin on a computer with 3 monitors: the left monitor is labeled 2., the middle monitor is 3., and the right monitor is 1.. I have the left monitor set as my primary, and the panel and plank display on that one. But all my desktop icons show on the middle monitor and I cannot figure out how to have them displayed on the left monitor. Can anyone help me?

Can I move the window control buttons (minimize, maximize, close) from the right side of window to the left?


New Users / Peppermint interface (SOLVED)
« on: July 17, 2018, 04:03:21 pm »
Not sure if the title fits, but I like Peppermint. I do not care for XFCE, nor do I like all opening apps to show on the top menu bar. Is there a way that I can run PM OS9 and have it look like Mate? In UM 18.04 I have the menu bar across the top, the Plank on the bottom, and all apps I open and run show on the Plank. Can I do that on PM OS9? Thanks!

Software & Applications / FireFox and porn Issue
« on: July 16, 2018, 02:58:57 am »
When I use FF and (for example) I have 123movies up and I find a movie I want to watch. When I play the movie FF almost always opens a new tab with either a porn website or porn related material.

How can I stop FF from doing this? I do not want extraneous material displaying when I am trying to open a proper tab.


Software & Applications / Hangouts Audio on Peppermint OS 9
« on: July 16, 2018, 02:54:39 am »
I have installed Peppermint OS 9. I am trying to use Google Hangout, and nobody can hear me when I am speaking. I have tried Opera, FireFox and am currently looking at Chromium.

I had no problem using Hangout on distros prior to Ubuntu 18.04. I can run SkypeforLinux and audio works beautifully. I can hear myself when I am speaking but the other party hears nothing. I run mymicrophone through a Peavey mixer and into my desktop.

Again my problems started with distros running on Ubuntu 18.04.


Installation / menu bar placement [SOLVED]
« on: March 28, 2018, 08:15:15 pm »
Is it possible to move the menu bar from the bottom of the screen to the top. I tried doing the Ubuntu Mate setup from the user-supplied tutorial, but it seemed to break more things than fixing them! >:(

Is there an official way of implementing a "mate style" desktop? Thanks!


Installation / Help with Backgrounds (Solved)
« on: March 28, 2018, 05:45:17 pm »
I have dual Dell monitors (a 20 inch and a 21 inch ) When I install OS 8  it displays a background on the primary monitor (the 20 inch)), but it will only display a black background on the second monitor. I can run apps on both, but I would like a background on the second monitor also. What should I do?
