had this happen to me earlier with bodhi which i put xfce on, i got mine working by right clicking the network icon then edit connections. click on wired connection then the cog arrow on the bottom of the window which open its settings. under the ethernet tab i had to change the device and it worked straight away.

you could try going into panel preferences and set the panel autohide to intelligently so it moves out of the way once its covered by a window

run this command in the terminal, wait for it to install then try it again.

sudo apt install xfce4-goodies

right click the panel then go to panel > add new items. scroll down to trash applet and press Add. once the icon is on the panel right click it and move it to where you want it.

as far as i know you can create backup images using the Disks application but have never tried it, just pick the drive and create disk image.
you can also use it to create bootable usbs by selecting restore disk image on the usb you want to burn it to, its my default one as it gives me the least amount of trouble.
office 365 online is available as an option, i use it as an ICE application alongside libreoffice.

Enjoyed the video and the comments.
Personally, I've had trouble with the dark themes mainly because the white letters are so small and hard for my aging eyes to see.  I've tried several of the non-dark themes and still find them hard to read.  I suppose that it is that I learned on larger white fonts on a black background (CP/M and DOS).  On Firefox, I can't even see the minimize, restore, and quit buttons.  And I never learned to read pictographs so I need readable labels on all of them.

search for font dpi in the main menu and increase it. might help with that issue

the icon issue is likely a limitation of the numix icon theme, missing icons or configuration. if you want to replace the missing icons right click it on the menu and edit application. from there you can set your own icons

the font issue in the light arc themes is down to the colour used, had it almost fixed yesterday then changed something and ruined the whole theme,  just as well i tested it on a cloned theme :D ill give it another go and will give you something to test once im at the stage to just leave it alone.

heres a modified version of the arc red theme, some of the menu & tab text is in the old colour but the active stuff is in black. Let me know if works for you, the themes should be rebuilt from source but im useless at compiling and dont have the source materials either.
open nemo as root then move theme folder into usr/share/themes. pick arc red pep from the themes menu

Peppermint doesnt include a lot of software out of the box because its about allowing the user to make that choice and look at it more as a base to build your own distro. MX is a fine distro but its fully loaded like Mint, its not for everyone. Either way good luck with your linux experience :)

the website got a complete overhaul and the links are now available under the user guide page, it was done during our move to a new host.

can you replace some of the installed applications with ice apps? set it up like a chromebook of sorts.
purge some of the software you dont need and do the rest online, for example instead of using a media player to play music open an mp3 in your browser instead.
i mostly use the terminal myself, for office theres the online microsoft office, photopea for image editing and so on..
using synaptic to clear out old kernels etc is a good way to save space too, make sure to reboot before doing it.

if you want something lighter maybe slitaz, tinycore plus or the puppy distros are what you want.

New Users / Re: (Solved) is it ok to use Peppermint 10?

You dont need to worry about the future of Peppermint, there is work going on behind the scenes to try get Peppermint 11 ready as soon as we can.

There are theories floating around the internet about the site etc going offline but we fixed some backend stuff so that can be put to bed now.

For now just install 10, enjoy using it and when the time is right well announce what we need to about Pep11 :)

was testing a peppermint 6 live usb recently, it still updates and runs the pure lxde setup instead of the new hybrid setup. might be worth a look

found this tutorial a while back and have used it in the past to fix grub issues, hope it helps. replace sda1 with whatever partition peppermint is installed to

Code: [Select]
If grub is now broken, boot back to the LiveUSB/LiveDVD and run these commands in sequence:

sudo mount /dev/sda1 /mnt

for i in /dev /dev/pts /proc /sys /run; do sudo mount -B $i /mnt$i; done

sudo chroot /mnt

grub-install /dev/sda


Then hit Ctrl+D to exit the chroot environment.

and finally reboot without the LiveUSB/LiveDVD
