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, 07:03:23 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.

That is my beef with it too.  But it is the best tool I found so far.  I am going to keep looking for an alternative.

Note the search button at the top is to search for apps you have pinned instead of Google Search.  A pretty neat little tool. :)

Here is what I have so far.  It is based on Lubuntu

 :)  I wanted to base it on Debian, but Ubuntu is just more familiar to me.  I also discovered a program for Linux called Firework.  It is the closest thing I could find that mimics the old Chrome App Launcher.

Thanks for the info.  My interest would be Debian/Ubuntu side of Linux.  Also want to learn programming and how to create in Linux like Peppermint made ICE and their control center.  The LFS may help me with learning the "bones" of Linux.  BTW I will check out Void as well
