Meanwhile I needed to switch the PC off, and after I started it again the problem went away... Now both terminals (yes, it's Sakura, I haven't installed anything after the fresh install) display identical $PATH.

Edit: That is:
Code: [Select]
$ echo $PATH
/home/walter/bin:/home/walter/.local/bin:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/games:/usr/local/games

Code: [Select]
$ echo $HOME
/home/walter

Code: [Select]
$ ls -al .profile
-rw-r--r-- 1 walter walter 655 Feb 11 12:00 .profile

On freshly installed PCs I usually add
Code: [Select]
if [ -d "$HOME/.local/bin" ]; then
  PATH="$HOME/.local/bin:$PATH"
fi
but now I noticed that something similar was already in ~/.profile and got lazy...

Opened from "Open in Terminal" context menu:
Code: [Select]
$ echo $PATH
/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin


Opened from shortcut on panel:
Code: [Select]
$ echo $PATH
/home/walter/bin:/home/walter/.local/bin:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/games:/usr/local/games

Fresh install Peppermint 8, latest respin.
Untouched ~/.profile:
Code: [Select]
$ cat .profile
# ~/.profile: executed by the command interpreter for login shells.
# This file is not read by bash(1), if ~/.bash_profile or ~/.bash_login
# exists.
# see /usr/share/doc/bash/examples/startup-files for examples.
# the files are located in the bash-doc package.

# the default umask is set in /etc/profile; for setting the umask
# for ssh logins, install and configure the libpam-umask package.
#umask 022

# if running bash
if [ -n "$BASH_VERSION" ]; then
    # include .bashrc if it exists
    if [ -f "$HOME/.bashrc" ]; then
. "$HOME/.bashrc"
    fi
fi

# set PATH so it includes user's private bin directories
PATH="$HOME/bin:$HOME/.local/bin:$PATH"

This works if I open the terminal from the panel shortcut, but now through Nemo -> Open in Terminal...

6
Therefore I think that the $PATH is not honoured when Sakura has been opened through the "Open in Terminal" context menu.

7
I have binaries in ~./local/bin and these are visible only when I open the terminal (Sakura) from the shortcut on the panel, but not when I use "Open in Terminal" from the context menu.

8
I type the first few letters and autocomplete with TAB.

9
As a result of this (bug?) binaries placed in user's private bin directories (as already set in ~/.profile) could not be launched, while in the terminal opened through the panel shortcut things work OK.

I wonder if there is some work around that...

Info: Peppermint Eight, fresh install using latest re-spin ISO.

This was a clean install, so I wonder if the problem with the disabled ""Canonical Partners" repo should be mentioned in the release notes... Or should I open a new topic on that? An out-of-date flash-plugin should be considered a security risk and I feel that users should be warned!

Thanks, man! After just enabling the "Canonical Partners" repo the "local and obsolete" category disappeared. Then adobe-flash-properties-gtk and adobe-flashplugin were offered for upgrade in the Update Manager. There was no apparent need to reinstall plymouth-theme*. Should I do this anyway or am I as it is now?

I was running Peppermint 7 until today, and decided to do a fresh install of Peppermint 8.

Everything is wonderful so far, but I noticed that in synaptic the status of 4 packages (adobe-flash-properties-gtk, adobe-flashplugin, plymouth-theme-peppermint-7-spin, plymouth-theme-peppermint-7-spin) is labeled "Installed (local or obsolete)".

It seems that these are not referenced in any repo, so my question is "could I uninstall them safely?" Both plymouth themes have "peppermint-7" in their description, so I assume that these should be remains from the previous Peppermint OS version...

Here is an illustration:

Please be aware that PM does not auto-mount external HDDs and USB-sticks when these are inserted. One needs to click on the corresponding device listed in the left column of the file-manager to mount...

I usually go for Firefox, but since converting an Atom-based laptop to Peppermint 7 I really started to enjoy Palemoon.

On my main PC (the 64-bit) Palemoon needs 60-75% less RAM than Firefox uses for similar tasks.  ;D
