Welcome, eruditorium, to the addiction of Peppermint. This is one addiction that one can live with.

Thank you stevesveryown!

This particular addiction lends itself well to my sweet tooth without any of the resulting heaviness. :D I wish more things in life were like that.  ;D

Amen to that!

My first foray into Linux was Pepp 5 on a 1005ha eeepc.  I also added a new battery, ram to 2gigs and a 320g hard drive.  For a bout a year I had it running Variety  Wallpaper changer and ran the slideshow for my family digital photos.  I recently tried to hook up a monitor to it, which didn't work on it, and for some reason the laptop screen went out.  So sad because this was equal to having the 1st dollar bill in your business.  It is what brought me to Linux and my finding Peppermint.

I had followed Slim's work around that worked well on my desktop.,8524.msg88419.html#msg88419

I had used a live usb to help repair the grub.  Rebooted and the weird screen I had posted earlier was gone but resolution was still off.  I have decided to take the Pepp off the HP with nvidia and put it on an HP with intel graphics.  I always appreciate the help you give, thanks.

Hi Pepperminters,

I did the 5.0 kernel update on my hp 8440 with the Pepp on  it.  I had screen resolution issues after reboot.  Fixed that issue with the help of Slim.  Has there been any reported issues from other Pepperminters?

Wow, very cool!  I'm gathering one can play the music as background in a stream and not worry about copyright?  Thanks for bringing this up!

Another option might be SimpleScreenRecorder which apparently has the ability to live stream.

Ice Ice, Baby....  ;D

My workflow is greatly improved with Ice.  I'm also feeling a little more secure with my MeWe and Facebook ssb's, both made with Firefox.

The column in synaptic that contains (or not) the pink star (in the default icon theme) denotes the package as "Supported".

All packages in the Ubuntu "Main" and AFAIK "Restricted" repositories are 'supported' (and hence have pink stars), those in "Universe" and "Multiverse" are not (so don't).

I would assume "Supported" in this context means supported directly by 'Ubuntu' rather than third party software such as (for example) GIMP, and packages from PPA's, etc.
(but don't quote me on that)

Thanks for the explaination!

I'm embarased. I looked tonight and they were not installed.  I swear when I looked in synaptic they were both marked green.  I think what threw me was the pink 'star' next to it.  What does that star mean?

Anyway,  :-[

BPP should be OPP, Old Poppa Peppermint, can't see, read or type anymore........  :'(

I checked in synaptic and they show installed. When I get home tonight, my time, I'll take some screen shots. I'm not all paranoid about it like most, just curious.
