Development / Re: Peppermint 11
« on: May 12, 2020, 08:30:06 am »
#TeamPeppermint are working with Mark's heirs and discussing the path forward @Johan. Being the super productive developer that he was, @PCNetSpec aka Mark, had laid some groundwork for Peppermint 11, but we can't really be more specific about it at this time. We'll keep everyone up to date in the Announcements section of our forum.

I have been playing with Ubuntu 20.04 mini iso, and discovered lxde and alot of their separate programs are broken.  Since Peppermint uses lxsession and lxappearance, I wanted to do a test to see what could be done to keep Peppermint as close as it is now, but not have to rely on a full Xfce desktop install.  So, I did an experiment to see if it was possible to make an Xfwm4 standalone session, similar to how openbox operates with an autostart file.  It does seem to work, although some of the custom items in the Peppermint Control Panel doesn't work since lxsession is not in use.  I don't know of what Peppermint's future will be, but wanted to see if may be an option to keep Peppermint unique as Mark's vision was for this distro. 

If I have put this in the wrong area of the forum, feel free to place it in what is deemed necessary.

It appears, for whatever reason, that he has a personal vendetta against Peppermint or made the video for clickbait.   He never attempted to address the issues in the forum.   Bad form in my opinion.  I guess he has never made a mistake in his life.

Installation / Re: Peppermint is getting Resource hungry?

One thing comes to mind that after you performed the installs that some background service/program is running that was not before.  I would open the resource monitor to see what is running so you can confirm what is taking up the RAM.

Installation / Re: Install Respin on Linux dual boot
« on: January 16, 2020, 10:39:15 pm »
I want to upgrade Peppermint 10 to Respin which runs alongside Linux Mint 19.3 as a dual boot.  Linux Mint gives me the option of installing over 19.2 when upgrading.  Peppermint only gives me the option to install along side LM and Peppermint 10.  Hardware  Dell All-in-One i7 w 8G memory and 2T HD.  How do I install over Peppermint 10 in my dual boot?

https://forum.peppermintos.com/index.php/topic,9208.0.html

Please note, you do this at your own risk.  I would take Slim.Fatz advice unless you are determined that you need the respin.

If this solves your issue, please edit the post title to mark the problem as (SOLVED).

Gracious and toodles.

Wow, this is totally unexpected.  To say that Peppermint OS, his friends and colleagues, and Linux in general will miss him is an understatement.  May he rest in peace.

Peppermint - Code Red

I think I should have made the file manager icon darker and got rid of workspaces in the panel.

Sure, Pin.  Just be warned, my *BSD knowledge is low.  I have a laptop that i should bring out and just put NetBSD on and get experience.

BTW, I tried Void.  Very efficient distro.  I even saved some links for it to try out some GUI programs that are like Synaptic.

After going back and forth between efficiency  and functionality, I decided upon a XFCE/Openbox Hybrid.  It uses a little less than 150 mb ram at first boot.  I was able to use some aspects of the former Chromixium/ Cub Linux distro.  The only beef I ever had with Cub is it did not have a panel, even though I realize one of its main goals was to look like Chrome OS.  This is the finalized 32 bit.  The 64 bit will be completed next. :)




 
I also have a control panel like Cub, and modified it for use in the right click Openbox menu.



Standard Whisker Menu on the panel



....and one on Plank (not necessary, but some may want it)




Once I get done with the Ubuntu versions, I want to try Debian again and then look giving this look to something like Void, an rpm based distro or maybe a *BSD or Arch. 8)

GNU/Linux Discussion / Re: can we prevent recommending Linux Mint?
« on: October 31, 2018, 04:03:23 pm »
I think Linux Mint's main goal is to create a "gateway distro" for people who wanted an operating system for individuals frustrated with Windows who are new to Linux.  Is it perfect for everyone?  No, but it serves its purpose quite well.  Linux Mint was created from a difference of opinion and branched of from Ubuntu, and it has benefited Debian/*ubuntu.  That is why Linux is great.  You can make it however you want it. 

There are alot of other distros out there that are far worse then Linux Mint.  For example, OpenSuse has a rolling distro, which has promise.  However, if the developers do not have consensus of the proper method of updating it, you know you could be in for some fun.

I always know one thing is true, a bad Linux distro is better than Windows IMO.

There is a brewery near my work that released a dark porter aged in a whiskey barrel.  Got a good buzz off two beers.

That's looking really nice so far. I gave you a karma point, for doing things I can't do. :) (fortunately, I have Peppermint ;D )

It is not that hard, although getting the Chrome OS look at the bottom with Plank was a pain.  And I must say doing some "experiments" made me unleash that usb reinstall several times   :D

Now that I have the look I want, now I need to work on the bootup time.  It is too slow.
