Software & Applications / Installing TTF Fonts
« on: April 04, 2020, 04:35:29 pm »
Dear Friends:

On Linux Mint and several other OS installs, in order to install a TTF font on my machine, all I had to do was click on the font to add it. In Peppermint, this does not work. I have a number of fonts I need for my documents, plus Greek and Hebrew fonts. Can somebody show me how to install them please?

Thanks in advance!

Hello, my friends. Greetings from central Mexico.

I am no expert, but I have been addicted to Linux for many years, ever since Mandrake 7.3.  :D

I want to share this, in case somebody else has a similar problem.

I have a new Lenovo Yoga 330 which I gladly recieved as a gift about 10 days ago. I did not like the fact that the hard drive was only 120 GB. However, it has an M.2 slot, into which I mounted a 1-terabyte WD drive. Awesome!

My problem began today, when I upgraded the kernel using the totally-amazing UKUU (Ubuntu Kernel Updating Utility). Suddenly my wifi could see several connections, but never connect to any of them, no matter what. The solution was simple. On startup, I sellect the seccond option from the boot loader to give me Linux choices, and sellect an older kernel. It connects to wifi with no problems at all.

I also had this very same problem on my Lenovo X260, with the latest UKUU-provided kernal not allowing connections.

The newer kernels which UKUU provided also fixed previous connection problems with my Bluetooth headsets.

Hopefully this info will help somebody else.

Be very blessed and coronavirus-free.

What are you running Peppermint on? / HP Mini 100E

Peppermint works very well, with only 2 Gigs RAM.

I tried several versions of Linux on this machine, without success. Now I have successfully installed the 32-bit version of Peppermint on my old HP Mini 100E, which is about 7 years old. Only 2 Gigs RAM, 1.6 Ghz Atom processor.

I also replaced the mechanical 160-Gigabyte hard drive with a SanDisk II (480 Gigabytes) SSD, which speeded things up quite a bit.

Though I am no expert by any means, I have been playing with Linux since Mandrake 7.3 and RedHat 7 a goood number of years ago. Now I pretty much stick to Ubuntu derrivatives, running LinuxMint and Lubuntu on two desktops and a laptop.
