General Discussion / [SOLVED] Proprietary Drivers
« on: November 18, 2019, 09:46:43 am »
Hello Peppermint Forms,


I have a new curb find and so I installed Peppermint 10 and all is working well OOTB.

OK so I checked additional drivers and noticed a proprietary driver for the wireless adapter.

OK since everything is working great is there any need to install the proprietary driver for the wireless adapter.

I'm not a purest however do prefer open source software over proprietary software being this is Linux.


Thanks  :)

General Discussion / [SOLVED] Thumbnail Cache
« on: October 02, 2019, 03:53:43 pm »
Hello Peppermint forums,


I was wondering which is the best method to clear the thumbnail cache that gathers over time.

rm -v -f ~/.cache/thumbnails/*/*.png ~/.thumbnails/*/*.png

rm -v -f ~/.cache/thumbnails/*/*/*.png ~/.thumbnails/*/*/*.png

Or

rm -rfv ~/.cache/thumbnails


Thanks

General Discussion / Peppermint 10
« on: June 02, 2019, 09:33:55 am »
Hello forums,

Just installed Peppermint 10 have a couple of questions.

Does the Minimal Install option work as that is what I chose however seems to have installed as a full although uncertain.

What happened to the Peppermint Start Page that was used in previous Peppermint versions as I noticed the standard default Firefox page.

The install and updates went without problems and then a few bits of additional software installed using Synaptic Package Manager.

Everything seems to be working.  :)

Peppermint 10 installed on a 2007 HP Pavilion I put together from spare parts.
