I think it might be related to overkill ...  ::)

Hi KamenkoTV,

It is very easy, nevertheless, to install and set up Openbox in Peppermint 10. I suggest, however, the even lighter weight and very similar Fluxbox. I use both of them, but find myself using Fluxbox much more often. I have a tutorial explaining the configuration files for Fluxbox that you can find in this link on the forum.   ;) It is perhaps a bit dated, but the basic information about Fluxbox is still very useful. Peppermint 10 flies with Fluxbox. Give it a try -- if you like Openbox better, then just remove Fluxbox and install Openbox8)

Hi kloos,

Please post the output of

Code: [Select]
inxi -Fz
if necessary, from a live USB session.

Also, have you tried booting into the previous kernel? If you can do this, then post the output of the above command when running with the previous kernel. There was a kernel update recently and maybe that is your problem.  ;)

Slim, there are times I seriously worry about you .. maybe you need more whiskey with your rocks (or maybe just slow down).
Hi PCNetSpec,

You could be correct about the whiskey ... but any slower than I'm now running and I'll be going backwards.  :P

Hi pin,

A "spoilsport" is a person whose actions (in this case, using BSD) spoil the pleasure of others (in this case, those whose "pleasure" is their struggling with the Linux kernel 5.0.0 sound issues).  :D


All meant in jest, of course, mate.  8)

Hi zebedeeboss,

Thank you very much for this information. I will be checking it out and hopefully using the system on at least one of my phones.  ;) 8)

Hi MrGizmo,

Of course a moderator could do this, but that is not the point! All of the moderators here work without pay (i.e. they are volunteering their own valuable time for free). And that is exactly why PCNetSpec emphatically said that
Code: [Select]
this is precisely why we ask people to always start their own support topic
Nevertheless, we are all glad that your issue has been solved.  ;)

Installation / Re: Peppermint 10 Gparted Issue
« on: August 11, 2019, 03:21:14 am »
Hi xrinh,

Well, if the HDD is broken, then you have several options to consider:
1. Replace the HDD with a new one (pretty obvious  :D )

2. Replace it with an SSD (much faster and reliable than HDD, less power usage, lighter weight, etc)

3. Perform an installation of Peppermint 10 on to a large USB stick so that it has persistance (i.e. changes made to the system such as customizations and updates remain saved across system restarts and your personal files are also saved on the same stick -- although you could also save your personal files on separate USB stick).

Unfortunately option 3 runs somewhat slowly unless your machine has a USB 3 port (and your USB stick also be capable of reading/writing data with USB 3 speeds). But even if your machine does not have any  USB 3 port in it, I know of people who use option 3 with USB 2 and are happy that they did not have to buy anything expensive (like a new computer or new HDD or SSD). Instructions for performing option 3 can be found on this forum by using the forum's Search function.

Good luck and ask back here if you have any further questions.  8)

P.S. I forgot the most obvious option: buy a new (or used) computer and ditch the old one.  ::)

Hi semola,

No problem. We all started out here as "beginners".  ;D I just wanted to give some advice.  8)

« on: August 10, 2019, 01:26:55 pm »
Hi semola,

I'm sure there is a better explanation, but my advice is to avoid KDE packages: they are made for the KDE desktop and PeppermintOS does not use that.

Hi DaveVM,

The icon/option that refers to Dropbox in the Peppermint Settings Panel is hard-coded into that app and will not be removed by deleting/removing/purging anything related to Dropbox. Perhaps our Chief developer PCNetSpec can help you with this, but I would not worry about that icon being present.  ;)

Hi semola,

As you probably noticed, this thread has been marked as SOLVED. Since your issue does not involve an HP printer, it would be much better for you to create a new thread with a descriptive title (e.g. Printer notifications for Samsung printer). We prefer that for each thread, only one specific issue should be handled.  ;)

Hi JonOfLA,

OK, so please

... put this thread as solved.
Only you can do this, and it is done by going back to the first message in this thread, then clicking on the Modify button and then adding (SOLVED) at the end of the Subject: line.  ;)

Thank you.
