There have been many behind the scenes discussions about why #teampeppermint feels flatpaks and snaps are security risks best avoided. That said, we don't prevent PeppermintOS users from installing whatever they want on their systems. I'm not a builder/coder/dev so I have no idea what you are referring to? Perhaps this will help?

Installation / Re: Backing up MBR using Live USB
« on: April 01, 2020, 09:58:00 pm »
Hello and Welcome to Peppermint and our forums @hellbraker!

We're pleased you are enjoying PeppermintOS! Although we have to admit it is largely the work of our beloved and late builder/dev/owner @PCNetSpec. We all helped him test and sometimes contributed ideas... but he is very largely responsible for what you are now using.

FWIW... I have never needed a back up of the MBR. The LiveUSB or LIveCD that you create in order to install PeppermintOS will ask you where to place the Device For Boot Loader Installation ... and it always belongs on whatever drive you are installing upon, not in any one partition ...


 ;)

Good Luck & Let us know how you get along...

Hi everyone!

I am new to the Linux community and have been trying to use WPS,

I am slow with abbreviations, so WPS means?

Software & Applications / Re: NeverBall (Solved)

Understood. Probably had better wait on that. The Firefox is saying that the connection is not secure and that logins entered there could be compromised.

FWIW, this thread is probably best marked (ABANDONED) for now @Brotherred...

A user has raised an issue in Tizonia's bug tracker:

I'm trying to find out if I should raise a bug in Peppermint OS's bug tracker.

To second @Slim.Fatz's comment, all bugs related to this particular snap belong on their site, not ours.

Furthermore, while #teampeppermint doesn't prevent anyone from installing flatpaks & snaps on their own systems, it is likely best that any issues resulting from flatpak & snap installation are best reported to their respective owners, no matter which distro they're creating problems.

I have just installed Peppermint 10 dual-boot on two older laptops one an Acer running Win10 Home and the other on an Compaq running Win Vista.  I am happy that both connected to my network printer automatically.

Hello! and Welcome to our forum @straybit.

Have a look at this tutorial explaining why our late lead Developer @PCNetSpec decided to remove automount:

When experiencing similar difficulties, it's best to provide a link back to the similar issue you are having like so:

Hardware / Re: Display settings reset after a while
« on: March 30, 2020, 01:36:19 pm »
Off the top of my head, still having my first coffee or the day out here in quarantine land, it sounds like a screensaver/powermanager issue. Please doublecheck that your powermanager settings don't include a screen timeout. Also, have you enabled or disabled screensavers in any way?

try unchecking the "Dim display when idle" option in the Power Management Preferences window. To get there, right-click the battery icon in your panel, click preferences, and remove the check-mark if it's present.
