I'm coming into this 6 months late. I'm sorry to hear about Mark Greaves.  Very hard to replace the founder who had the original vision. I hope the people coming up after him will carry on with what he laid down. Great little OS.

Many thanks for your condolences @ssybesma... there's  both an announcement,9283.0.html

and a memorial fund...,9402.0.html

It was shocking and unexpected... both for his family and his team here.

That said, while @PCNetSpec has been with Peppermint OS for so long one may be forgiven for thinking so, he was not the founder. Yet his vision added extra layers of spit and polish over the  7 releases he had a hand in.

#teampeppermintOS hopes to carry that forward as we re-coalesce to produce a Peppermint 11 he'd be happy to lift a few pints over.


Hello @spence - thanks for that. What is that crunchbang search?

Hello and welcome back to our forums Fitzroy! I have encapsulated the inxi-Fz terminal output for you. using the tools above the message compose window.

If your friend determines that it's within her budget to upgrade her memory, Peppermint 10 Respin is supported until 2023. Plus there are many threads here in the forums which deal will deleting rarely used programs in order to boost boot speed and prioritize your friends workflow.

Thanks for spreading the peppermint love and helping us conquer the world, one laptop at a time!


I have installed it previously in as little as a 7gb partition... wouldn't recommend it though.   


From my poking around the interwebs, it seems you're going to either have to toss that USB or use something pretty aggressive to wipe & reformat it... the mention of DD comes up frequently...

and yes... ZFS IS NOT intended for usb nor individual computers... though there are mentions of it on our forums as far back as 2016...

#teampeppermintOS is blessed to have the full support of PCNetSpec's heirs as the team he had gathered over the years recoalesce to carry his legacy forward with a release we hope he'll be proud of.,9283.0.html

Although the problem cannot be solved, I will mark it as solved.

Please DO NOT mark it as (SOLVED) unless it actually is... if you are letting go of the need, then we request you mark it as (Abandoned) ... That way, if some future user comes with the same query, they won't waste their time. Or ... ... ... they might respond with a resolution they have found...

8) yes Ice is a great idea, and without all those ads. ;D

Was perplexed by your mention of ICE, until I saw @perknh's sig line!

For further reading on ICE... here's it's chapter in our Peppermint OS User Guide

This (or something like this) might be handy for painting Peppermint with retro themes.

For instance, making PM10 look like PM6, PM7, PM8, or PM9.

Could be very interesting to make it scroll thru all 10 years of our own wallpapers for PeppermintOS's 10th Anniversary eh @VinDSL?

Also to scroll thru another folder of all @rayzer's wallpapers?

I finally found a dark mode addon/extension that works in firefox... my last favorite one went belly up months ago!

And it's glorious with this theme...
