Development / Re: Knowledge on contributing ?

Why has everyone apparently got it in for Python lately :-\

Seems ideal to me for non performance critical stuff.

I think sometimes people read too much stuff online :) Python is fantastic for a lot of things. And the huge selection of libraries/modules available for use make it easy to do so many things with it. And maintain and iterate them quickly.

How about we ditch python and go full on c++ :D

Haha :) Mostly because there would be no benefit for something like the settings. It would only make it more difficult for people to contribute to.

I don't have Peppermint in front of me at the moment but on Mint there is a preference to only show the the tray icon when there are updates or errors. Don't remember what version of mintupdate Peppermint is using but I thought this preference had been there for quite a long time.

According to gnome-software the slack snap is still beta.

Maybe you should try the flatpak ?

But personally I'd go here
https://slack.com/intl/en-gb/downloads/linux
and get the .deb version.

Both snaps and flatpaks often have system integration issues.

I was using the deb version during the pep10 beta and it worked as expected.

They were hidden away in the last release. They will be gone completely in this one.

Yeah, I've reinstalled twice I think and zero issue post install.

I can tell you that article is definitely a bit overblown. Little things happen every cycle that effect what gets done. A lot of them just seemed to line up and happen all at once this time around. When you have a large project with lots of people involved these things are going to happen on occasion.

Apparently I have some setting wrong. Didn't get notified of the responses.

I have reinstalled since this first time and had the same issue using the "Try Peppermint" so I don't know what's going on. Rebooting the live usb again made it work fine. It isn't even consistently reproducable so I'm not really sure what to say on this one ;)

I was unable to install using the "Install Now" option. I could get no keyboard input. It worked fine launching the installer for the "Try Peppermint without installing" option.

In my experience, unless you have a pretty large community of constantly active members in IRC it's of very limited use. It just leads to people getting a bit frustrated when they ask a question and get no responses or answers. It does have the benefit of a more direct conversation with someone while trying to figure out a problem but again the people have to be there. Also nowadays you really have better options like Slack, Telegram, etc. that actually keep the history you can go back and read without the need of setting up things like bouncers to view what you missed while you were away.
