I restored xdg-open from a backup, and used your instructions for fixing magnet links. Both Computer and magnet links are working now. Thanks!

Can we get an updated art pack for Peppermint 7? Also, what font is used in the logo? Thanks.

Magnet links worked fine with firefox and transmission, then I switched my browser to Chrome, and they still worked with Transmission, then I switched from Transmission to Tixati, and the first time I used one it worked, but the second time Chrome gave me a dialog box asking how I wanted to handle magnet links, and I clicked the wrong thing and they stopped working. I tried several solutions from googling around, and editing the xdg-open and switching
Code: [Select]
X-Generic)
           DE=generic
to
Code: [Select]
X-Generic)
           DE=xfce
did finally fix it, but then I encountered my current issue, which googling hasn't provided a solution to.

My line 916 in xdg-open already is
Code: [Select]
lxde)
    open_gnome3 "$url"
    ;;
I searched and I don't have a line that shows
Code: [Select]
 lxde)
    open_lxde "$url"
    ;;

Running "nemo computer:///" does work. I showed the change I made to xdg-open in the first post.

Maybe I didn't explain my issue clear enough, so I'll try again. I wasn't using xdg-open to try to add the computer icon to my desktop, it was already there, and functional before I edited xdg-open. I was only changing xdg-open to fix magnet links in Chrome. Using gconf editor was how I put the computer icon there in the first place. It just stopped working (giving unknown file type error) after editing xdg-open, and reverting my change didn't fix it. I tried turning it off and back on again in gconf editor, and that didn't fix it either. I know it isn't the most important issue, I just like having a shortcut to a place that shows all my drives in the main Nemo window.

I was messing around in the xdg-open file, trying to get magnet links to work in Chrome. I fixed that issue,  but in the process, created another. Since I changed it, when I try opening "Computer" from my desktop, I get an unknown application error, would I like to choose an application, etc. I'm pretty sure all I did was change this:

But changing it back only breaks magnet links, doesn't fix the Computer issue. Thanks.

New Users / Re: I want to use peppermint as portable usb linux os.
« on: May 08, 2017, 05:22:12 pm »
Not sure if you're still looking for an answer, but here is a solution that can work for you. when installing on a usb stick, create an additional partition on it whatever size you need to store your portable applications, and format it as ntfs or fat32. Then that partition can be read and written to from either the linux os if booted from it, or a Windows installation .

Hey everyone. I don't have Peppermint installed on a dedicated machine, instead I've installed it to a persistent USB drive as my mobile, go anywhere OS. There are three main PC's I use this on, as follows:

This is my main computer, which has a dual boot with Mint 18.1 Cinnamon, and Windows 7. I rarely use the Win7, and use the Mint and Peppermint interchangeably. It is also the computer I used to install Peppermint on the USB drive in the first place. I didn't run into any problems, although for some reason, my broadcom wireless worked without installing additional drivers, something that neither Mint or Ubuntu managed to do.

This is a general purpose laptop used by everyone in the family. It only has Windows 7 installed, and whenever I use it I boot up into my Peppermint OS. No issues with hardware recognition, no drivers or anything needed to run fully functionally.

An old desktop, with Win XP and Mint 18.1 XFCE installed. Don't really use the XP part any more, Mint XFCE is used by my son for internet, education and light gaming. I use my Peppermint OS on it when I'm on it just so I have all my regular apps and stuff.
