While I appreciate his devotion to TeamPeppermint, one hopes EB comes back quickly with another more in depth video which digs into the meat of PMX while fawning less over the wallpapers.


my purchase record is empty, not sure about hubster's. Perhaps that's a good reason to use useless ISP provided email addys, I barely use gmail anymore, but then again I closed my Cox Cable accounts as they required too much triage attention. Opened a Proton Mail account not long ago, but always forget its on my phone.

The Peppermint 10 is now available for download

The release announcement can be seen here:

Download links are available on the big red buttons on the main site here:
but PLEASE use the torrents wherever possible, so not to slow the server to a crawl.

Gonna leave my Torrents rolling! I've posted to my MeWe & Vero accounts Vero cross posts to twttr!!    And now off to the pools... Tucson's Pool Party Season Begins in just under an hour! 

 :)    ... ;)    ... 8)

... it was set as gpt at one time
and the target system is not uefi bios, thus so pm9 could set the disk up properly.
but your Peppermint installer for MBR... use Rufus for make flash drive for GPT

In future, please remember to post your comments as replies to the Original thread.

My apologies @Denisjuk, your reply is in the correct thread. I best drink my coffee before engaging in triage.   :(

However, Peppermint Install media, whether LiveCD or LiveUSB, do have the ability to create the GPT partition scheme.

When booting with your install media, first select "Try Peppermint," once that is loaded, open gparted:

Select the drive you wish to operate on:

Select "Create Partition Table", then select GPT from the drop down menu.

Once that is accomplished, close gparted:

Now you are free to Install Peppermint onto the drive in question.

Once again my apologies @Denisjuk for not realizing your response was where it needed to be in the first place..


Would you kindly verify that this is your motherboard? It dates back to 2004...

Normally, I wouldn't interject when others have begun helping you triage @kjl... But given what all you've done prior, I wonder if your Windows installation still boots properly at all? I think it would be helpful for you to to clarify whether you are wanting to dual boot Peppermint & Win10? Or just wanting to install Peppermint by itself?

Our work group has a different name and I've made that change in smb.conf as well as setting my two machines to be clients not servers as hubster isn't much interested in sharing onto mine as backups. This is working for my purposes, and can wait until another time.

Ahhh, making a bit more sense now, once I've accessed a folder on another computer on our network, It appears in a list of folders under Nemo's Network menu.

Thanks to this bookmarked thread, I am once again able to access the Windows Share via samba. Curiously I can no longer just scroll down and click on the Network via Nemo. While It will show me my computer and Windows Network, clicking there brings up an empty page with a spinning wheel.  In order to actually connect to the shared network, I must instead use Nemo's Connect To Server dialogue box.

One wonders why the first option wouldn't show up after successfully completing the second? Ahh well at least I can finally access the shared folders

If you remove all the entries in a category, that category will disappear from your left column, but the programs remain installed and accessible via the search at bottom of the menu @peppycrab....

I don't try to convert people to Linux. They have to come willingly or they'll never like it and will go back to Windows.

I get that Chris err scifidude79, yet the drive he declared was dead, is currently perfectly happy as part of my 2.5 TB of storage... even had to search it for a file he hadn't backed up...

He does things in trading and quicken on his Win10 machine that can't be done in linux, yet I think I'll be able to create a PMX partition on his new SSD so he can play with our French, Russian & Ukrainian installs down the line...
