I like it.  It gives an updated look to the Whisker menu and looks very nice in the dark theme.  The standard light gray looks awful.  Nice find.

Just answer what you can, when you can. That's all I do. Share your experiences you have whilst using Peppermint. I can set it up for people NVIDIA, AMD, INTEL Drivers anti screen tearing, multiple monitors, grub configurations, home folder partitions on other hard drives, customizing desktop etc. When it comes to coding, wish I could, though I don't learn things from reading I'm a visual person and need to see it done live. Hence why YouTube was born.  ;D

Thanks, Slim.  I'm visual, too.  I started to do quick tutorials based on some of the posts in the forum, because like you, I am visual, too, and I bet most in the forum are, too.

Data recovery is a tough nut but it can be cracked.  I've used the following programs to varying degrees of success.  I had formated an external hard drive several times.  The first time I used TestDisk and PhotoRec I filled my hard drive up to the point I couldn't boot into the system.  I had no idea what I did.  The only way the programs work are in root and the files are saved with root access only.  It took me some time to figure it out.  It found multiple instances of the same image because I had backed them up after each format.  The programs work only too well.  If you want to use programs like these read, read, read all you can about them.  I'm not telling you this is what you should use, just that it's an option.

Hello fellow Pepperminters,

As the title asks, what can I do to help?  I know this is a rough time, here at Peppermint.  We lost a great leader, a good man and a friend.  I, for one, and I know I am not alone, don't want to see Peppermint go away.  We all know this happens often.  Very few distros get saved, Endeavour is one that has.  So, I want to know what can I do?  I sent a message to Kendall and asked about the future of Peppermint.  He told me a maintainer is needed.  That kind of job is well out of my realm of knowledge but I did create a video stating Peppermint is looking for a maintainer.  PCTLC followed suit and he made a video. I think we have a nibble but we will see.  In the meantime, how can I help?  I am not about to jump ship and hop into another distro.  Peppermint fits me like my Peppermint jacket, perfectly.  I try to help out where I can in the forum, with what feeble skills I have.  I have started to make short tutorials, focusing on Peppermint, on my channel, hopefully keeping Peppermint in the mind of the user.  Everyone who comes to a stream of mine will see me either in my Peppermint shirt or jacket.  My YouTube image has the Peppermint icon in it.  Mark was instrumental in his support of me and my channel.  It may sound silly but finding Linux and finding Peppermint has changed my life in a way that is hard to explain.  So, to all you Trusted Users, what can I do to help?

Thanks! Decided to go with darker wallpaper in my laptop since it's not a hirez screen.  The Variety quotes don't show up well on lighter wallpaper like they do on my nice HP desktop monitor.

I've been using the following website to convert pdf to jpeg and have had some great results.

Very nicely done!


Two quotes come to mind from "It's A Wonderful Life":

Strange, isn't it? Each man's life touches so many other lives. When he isn't around he leaves an awful hole, doesn't he?

Remember, George: no man is a failure who has friends.

I am not normally this deep and retrospective but I felt these quotes appropriate.  I understand the struggles you are going through.  Us going through the loss of Mark bears no weight like it does for you.  I just want to say to you, Thank you for sharing Mark with us.  You are in our thoughts.

BDLL started off with a nice tribute to Mark tonight. In all the comments made the underlying message was Mark helped everyone, no matter who they were.
