What are you running Peppermint on? / Re: Medion E1210 120GB
« on: October 01, 2014, 03:25:46 pm »
LibreOffice and Kingsoft are both good options, I have both installed on my AA1'a and U120's .. LibreOffice for most of the time (and open document formats), and Kingsoft for the occasional Microsoft Office docx formatting issue.
I use on my office pc, so I have odf and docx. So I think I will do the same, Libreoffice and Kingsoft.

What are you running Peppermint on? / Re: Asus eee 4G PC

Hi LimboMan,
First, how install Peppermint 5 on asus eee xxx.
I have  used a usb stick with Peppermint 5, 32bit, on it. You can make the USB stick by yourself.  Follow the instructions or buy one in the Peppermint shop. It is a beautful wooden magnetic stick, a collectors item.
Place your thumb drive (USB - stick) in the Asus. Start the PC .
Go to the BIOS, use the F2 button on the Asus eee . In Bios change under Advanced > Instalation > Finished in Start. Go to Exit & Save Changes.
Restart the PC and press the <ESC>. Then a pop up will appear with the question " pls select boot device" Select your USB device, after that the Peppermint installation  begins.
At the end, when Peppermint is installed, change in BIOS Start in Finished, exit & save. That is it.

Second Asus 4G has an Solid State Drive, ssd, with 4Gb, actually that's toooo small. You need at least 4.5Gb . When installed you canot update, it gives many errors . BUT it runs and you can get your gmail , use your dropbox , you can work in Drive. So it is a little miracle.
The other Asus eee computers, such as a 701 and so on ,have more HD space. That is Peppermint in heaven .
I also have an Asus 900, it is always a great pleasure to work with.
Success. Please post your experiences.

I have never used, or seen a MSI Wind, so I don't know, sorry. In the Netherlands, the brand Medion is known as sold by  a low-cost German supermarket, named Aldi. It is cheap and it is good quality.
Second hand, after a few years, you can buy it for nearly nothing and it is still good quality.

Now, I am testing the Medion. Dropbox is now installed. This afternoon I will install Copycom and Skype. And I hope to install a write-program like Libreoffice or kingsoft.The pc looks very nice and fast, also very silent.
I had a problem: After installing Peppermint, Gmail was running very bad, every time a "woops" After updating peppermint the problem was solved.
I nearly always use a mouse to avoid spasm in my fingers. The touchpad is working well. I can manage the mousepointer and with right part of the pad I can scroll the screen.

How do I install Skype?
I've tried to search with the Software Manager, but cannot find the program. I only see plugin for libpurple messenger. Whatever that may be.

Thank you for the recommendation. I've looked, looks good. The Chinese are doing well. On my iMac I use  I am very satisfied with it.
I do not know if both have the possibility of PPA. that surely has advantages, I think.
I will try king soft. If I'm ready, I make a new entry. Thank you.

Thank you, great. In menu "Office" LibreOffice is gone. Thank you for cleaning my menu.
I will use in future Google Drive as a word processor. I saw in another item that if I need an off-line editor, I better

Thank you, great, it went okay.

Also the last item in menu "Office", named  LibreOffice, is gone. Thank you for cleaning my menus.

Of course I will use Google Drive as a word processor. But I saw in another item that if I want  an off-line editor, I better can use Abiword.
Maybe it is an idea when I am unfortunately offline I use the text editor. And  when I am back online I can copy all my text to Drive. It is a pity, that the text editor is only valid for text not for spreadsheets.

Thank you for helping me.

What are you running Peppermint on? / Re: Asus eee 900

I think you're right.
I first EasyPeasy used on this PC, which is a tiny linux distro.
Peppermint has a vision. Your data reachable everywhere, and an OS that allows it. Sounds simple, but it is the future. Google is trying it with their PC. I think that Peppermint is a better alternative. Because you can work with all clouds as Drive, Dropbox, Copycom, etc. Therefore, it is waiting for a manufacturer who understands us.  :)
