i just wanna say big thanks to the peppermint-team!
pepp 10r is awesome...
after over one year without pepp, it feels like coming home...
o.k., the font-config is bad (pepp 8 config is much better / the best i see), and the automount-feature is gone...
but i can fix that for me...
anyway...
the look and feel is fantastic (the theme, icons and wallpaper which you can choose from are perfect)...

i'm shocked about the sad news about Mark...  :o  :'(
hope this is not the end of peppermint...  :(

but...
great job! good work! thank you so much!

big thanks to the "pepp-team"!  ;)

for myself, i don't know...
maybe i am a little bit disappointed...  :o

i love PM8 respin. it runs great, has for me no problems, and it looks and feels very nice...
the out-of-the-box-experience is awesome...

it is hard and sad to say, but PM9 is not near as good...
i really miss the "peppermix-theme" (the new one, based on arc, makes it all bigger, and sized it all up) and some new "Ray Bilcliff's"-wallpaper...
i know it is just the look & feel, but it is somewhere important to me...
anyway, thats just me. in the end of the day you can customized it to the way you want...
i have to tweak more settings to make PM9 working great like PM8 does (for example automount)...
maybe it (PM9) needs a little more time to me. don't know if i should upgrade my PM8 respin...

anyway, again: great job! please keep up the good work!

now, after five weeks on PM9, i give PM9 a 8/10...
its not bad, its because there are many good distros out there...
it works fine on my laptop...
my desktop runs PM8 respin...
would i change, no...
my PM8 respin works, looks and feels beautiful  (out-of-the-box it is all in there)...

like in my first impression, i have to tweak more to get it run the way i prefer...
if i had some wishes for PM9 respin, so please:

- bring the automount back (peppermint-volman), or at least into the repos...
- a nice-looking dark-theme. the peppermix-theme on PM7/8 is awesome. sadly it doesn't work on PM9. the new PM9-dark-themes based on arc looks boring to me. nothing special. something dark based on numix, or adapta would be nice. like the beautiful peppermix-icons, they are unique. adapta-theme in the repos would be nice too...
-font configuration. i notice that on many others distros too. especially in firefox for example. what i do, i copy the /etc/fonts -folder from PM8 to PM9. this looks so much better...

that would be great...

i read this:
https://itsfoss.com/fix-brightness-ubuntu-1310/
https://itsfoss.com/ubuntu-mint-brightness-settings/ (< ppa)
https://unlockforus.com/remember-screen-brightness-settings-in-linux-mint-17-2-rafaela/ (< downloadlink)

for now i found a good workaround...
at my system /etc/rc.local does not exist...
so i create there the script-file...

Code: [Select]
#!/bin/sh -e
echo 0 > /sys/class/backlight/acpi_video0/brightness
exit 0

now it boots always up at level 0...
indeed it still does not remember a new brightness-change...
but this works for me...

yes...
but even if it is disabled, it makes no difference...

after a search, i notice it must be a ubuntu-bug...
there is a fix, add a ppa and install a file (sysvinit-backlight)...

i am not a fan of something like that...
hope there is a simple file/setting which must be modified...

i can adjusting the brightness by the powermanager tray-icon...
also by the keyboard (fn + brightness-button)...

max. brightness is level 9 (i can press the brightness-up-key nine times to get the max. brightness)...
/sys/class/backlight/acpi_video0/max_brightness says also 9...

no problem to adjust it...
it does not remember the setting...
on a new start it always boots up with/on level 1...

i have a small issue...
my beautiful pepp9 on my laptop does not remember the brightness setting...
the level is 0 to 9...
i always had to set it new after each boot...  :(
it boots always up at level 1...
i prefer level 0...
is there a simple way to fix it?

yes, @PCNetSpec...
just copy and paste it from my PM8 drive...
but in the end, i don't like it...
(EDIT: i donīt try the new one (@your link) for now, maybe later...)

currently i made/run this one here:

   

i put the adapta-theme on it, change some colours there and modify the peppermix-icons (custum-folders, volume-status) and some other stuff...
for now its o.k. ...

indeed, i try it (copy the peppermix-theme to PM9)...
looks horrible...

currently the peppermint-grey-dark-theme looks o.k. to me...
normally i prefer blue, but the blue one ist too much blue...  :P
maybe i have to tweak the colours, to my preferences...

yes, you're right @PCNetSpec...
then you hear they don't like the colorful minimize-, maximize- and close-buttons...
i like it...
but hey, if you don't like it, so go and change it...
