I suspect someone is going to package Chromium as a deb because it's open source and it's also available as a binary on the project website.

Yep nothing wrong with Deb files whatsoever, they are smaller and more reliable. I don't use Chromium anymore, Firefox does everything I need and now that SSD's are so cheap, it opens just as if not quicker than chromium, or Chrome. Plus the advantage of Firefox is more security which is left to the users discretion. In Chromium and Chrome forever needing to delete your history, plus they are holding to Google too. I don't like the way Google takes over everything, where as Duck Duck Go don't take anything from you. I love using Perknh's homepage too, that PCNetSpec made him.,5610.msg92099.html#msg92099

Unfortunately there is nothing that can be done, it seems it is setup to this as default and the only way to not have the brackets at all is either have icons only, or only show minimized windows only, but that still does not get rid of the brackets.  :-\ Puzzled I be.

I don't know about your machine but on mine, the square brackets indicate windows that have been minimized.  To get rid of the brackets, just restore the window.

Thanks. Knew that too ;) But I don't want them to show at all. Is that possible?

I don't think it is possible Johan, I will see if there is a way of changing it in the script to window buttons. Bare with me I'll be back.

I've never got it to work properly, as it does not have Isle of Wight on it at all. Ever since Linux began the Isle of Wight has never been there in the weather app, not even Gnome's one. My brother got it working with Southampton weather station, but then he got conflicting reports because of the three mile stretch of water between the Isle of Wight and mainland Britain. That little puddle between us makes a huge difference on weather patterns.  :(

Not that big of a deal. Just want to know why they are there and if there is a possibility to remove them ;)

Hi Johan, I always go into window button properties and change it to icons only. You can still see what it is you have open by hovering over the icon and tool tip will tell you what it is? To activate Icons only on your panel, you probably know how to anyway but for those who don't.
There are two ways to get to windows properties, first Right Click Three Little Lines On Panel just off of movie player icon on the right. Might take a while to find?

Code: [Select]
Left Click on properties

Should look like this.

How I have mine setup.

Hope this helps to get rid of those brackets. Though I never do with the theme I use and have never seen them before.  ;)

Left click the images above as they seem to not display properly until you do.
Code: [Select]
The other way to get into window properties is left clicking panel highlight panel in the list and choose panel preferences

Code: [Select]
Click on Items Tab

Items list that's on your panel come up after clicking it,
Code: [Select]
highlight Window Buttons

The fifth icon on the right of the window is edit, so left click it.

Too bad you cannot specify a search through specific forums/subforums in the PeppermintOS or better yet in the specific version of PeppermintOS forum/subforms. :)

Actually... if one first navigates into the subforum in which they expect the answer to be found... then enters their search terms in the search box upper left of desktop, only results in that subforum  will turn up... 


Not that the majority of forum users post their queries in the proper forums, nor  does our team always have time to move posts about...

There's also a  secret little known crunchbang search option ...  :o

click on Menu... in the run/search box type:
 !p + your search term... and it will search the entire public facing


!p Vulcan turns up:

That's one of the most cleverest things PCNetSpec added to Peppermint and I only found out about it about a month or so ago. Full of magic this operating system.  ;D

LoL! I'm a 'shuffle' fanboi - hella hard on your knees though.   :)

You'll never see a shuffle dancer over 25...

Yep used to do that but not in a bikini :)) When I was a young wee whipper snapper, had the energy of a nuclear bomb 24/7 365days a year. Drive my parents potty, then took up Judo and Karate. Now I'm lucky if I can lift my little finger without knackering myself out. I hate getting old, but I think in my case my body is older than I am.

Why not just use the one in Synaptic? I know you'd rather use PCNetSpec's version. Maybe upgrade to Pep 10 Re-Spin would solve it? I mainly use what's in Synaptic and the 2.8 version has never failed me. I don't like 2.10 as a lot of stuff had been removed, like create logos, buttons etc.  ;D

New Users / Re: Dual boot with W10, prevent grub
« on: May 12, 2020, 10:42:27 am »
If all goes well I hope to ween off Windows.....

I've only got W10 for gaming on if I did not have to keep tweaking Pep to play not just the latest, but nearly all of my Winders games, then I would not have bothered with W10. So pleased everything worked out, welcome to the world of Peppermint.  ;D

New Users / Re: Dual boot with W10, prevent grub
« on: May 10, 2020, 11:38:53 pm »
Out of curiosity I installed some optional Win10 updates yesterday on my dual-boot machine. When it came to restart Windows it went into the BIOS as usual and came up with the grub boot options. All I had to do was a few down-arrows then Enter to select Windows as normal. Windows then completed it's updates and all seems well.

I installed W10 home international ISO maybe there is a difference between this and normal? Still security is not a bad thing.  ;D

Reporting Bill Gates as the penultimate hacker is probably not going to win me that prize...


The problem I find here is that it's a mixture of Linux and Winders, so the only vulnerabilities they'll find is on Winders side of the programming. Beggars belief though that Linux and Winders working together? Though Microplop did spend an awful lot of money to get a seat on the board of directors of Linux foundation.  :D
