Hi windrose,

Is the standard keyboard layout in Canada different from the one in USA? If so, which keys are different?

Hi windrose,

Does moving the toolbar to the top of the screen help? Not ideal, I know, but getting accustomed to having it at the top is not so difficult.

Hi newb85,

I understand how that can happen. I just wanted to point you in the right direction.

The PeppermintOS Team can try to help you with your issue, but if it comes from outside programming "errors" there is not really that much that the team can do. In such cases it is best to try to get help from the "source" of the problem (in this case, the xfwm programmers).

Hi newb85,

If it is a problem caused by xfwm, then you need to gripe about that with them because they are the ones who program that, not the PeppermintOS team (who only is using the xfwm).  ;)

... the HP she has with win 10 on it is so slow it drives me nuts waiting for it to do something. I had thought of dual booting her HP but it is slow now with only the one OS ...


Hi windrose,

Dual booting will not slow a computer after it has booted into an OS. In fact, if the HP is so slow on Windoze, I'm almost positive you will find it faster using PeppermintOS. That is why so many people with older (read: slower) computers often install Linux! It extends the life of the computer that they thought was so slow that it must be thrown into the garbage and replaced by a newer, faster machine when the problem was actually the OS.  ;)

Hi VinDSL,

Yes, I too have been dumping the mintsystem.service for quite some time now. No problems that I can report and quicker boot as a result.  8)

Hi RandyBonnette,

According to your profile you are using Peppermint 9 -- if this is correct, there is no need to use Unetbootin. The needed tools are already installed in Peppermint 9;)

I use peppermint almost a year... the problem start after I did sudo apt autoclean

Hi makis_best,

When did you do this? The log does not show it (see entries starting with Commandline: which should show apt autoclean). Or is that all that exists in the log?  ??? If so, you probably need to look into the older archived logs with names such as history.log.1.gz and histrory.log.2.gz

Hi Omen,

Just a quick reply here but basically uploading the photos to pcloud and then downloading them to the other computer is just another way of making a copy of the photos, as suggested by PCNetSpec. Of course, the process is not exactly the same, but I think you probably understand the similarity.  8)

Hi newb85,

On my machines I frequently use the Shift key when creating customized keyboard shortcuts or when changing existing ones to ones that I prefer that use the Shift key. All work fine for me.

Hi LordKaan,

I will not delve into the many good reasons for not using the original Chromium or kernel from Peppermint Six, but if you really want to know them you can ask back here again, and someone will explain them to you.

As far as changing the appearance of Peppermint 10 so that it more resembles Peppermint Six, I suggest that you carefully look through the thread topics in the following forum areas:

User Submitted Tutorials

Artwork, Themes and Icons

There are many things to learn from these threads that most users (even those with little knowledge of Linux) can use. If you have a specific problem with any of the posted instructions, then simply add a new message into that specific thread and I'm certain that someone will assist you. However, it is always useful to try learning some of these things yourself so that you can become more self-sufficient with regards to your computer usage and enjoyment.  ;)

Beyond that, you can also find much information about modifying the look and feel of the various components used in Peppermint 10 by visiting the homepages of the component authors/creators (such as www.xfce.org for the components borrowed from them). Again, if you have difficulty understanding their information, or getting the results you desire, then post back here in our forum and someone with the appropriate knowledge will help guide you to a resolution of your issue.

Have fun with your experiments modifying the Linux desktop! Most of us make changes to get our own desired, "ideal" desktop -- and that is the beauty of Linux: you can change things almost endlessly to achieve something that is unique and useful for the way that you use your computer rather than the way that someone else thinks is the best way for you to use it.  8)

In Case; i guess, u could change the topicname easily.; I agree with it - cause it should be helpfull for other users tooo


Hi LordKaan,

Actually it is you, the original poster and creator of this thread, who has access to the Modify button (in the first message you wrote) and can change the topic name. Of course, a forum Moderator can also do this, but it is only common courtesy for you to do it and not expect forum Moderators to take their time from helping others to do this for you.  ;)
