Thanks, @PCNetSpec! I'm using Variety now, it's pretty cool.

Software & Applications / Wallch instantly crashes
« on: December 04, 2016, 10:27:48 am »
I was able to install Wallch from the default repositories and it neither installed any dependencies nor mentioned any were missing. When launching it, the GUI opens for a split second then closes. It apparently works for folks on Ubuntu 16.04 with Unity/GNOME, but it says it supports LXDE as well.

Terminal output:
Code: [Select]
yochanan@EEE-BOOK ~ $ wallch
QEventLoop: Cannot be used without QApplication
QDBusConnection: system D-Bus connection created before QCoreApplication. Application may misbehave.
Error: The message '--focus' could not be sent to Wallch.
Assuming that the previous Wallch instance crashed and starting a new one now. Sorry for this :)

Hello
I am a 70 year old..
You rule, man!  :o

Thanks
Sometimes I wish I did rule.  I Started with a Commodore 128.  I think technology is a great thing but fear the big corps are going to ruin it.   but this keeps me busy at night  :D
I started with a Commodore 64 and I'm only 39. Are you saying I'm old, too? My doctor says I'm not old until next year.
HI

I noticed in an earlier post you said you were 70 year old, now I don't consider that Really old, at 56 I'm only 14 years your junior which would put me in the Old category, now I don't appreciate that so I think you should change your name to just ... ... ..., that would place me squarely back in the young category where I belong and leave the ... ... ...  to the 90 pluses

Just sayin   ;)


Graeme


 :D :D  I get your point BUT  :D  When you get around these young whipper snappers thats is what they call you when you tell them your 70  :D.  The other thing is and I cant explain it when you hit about 65  Time as in 24 hours a day is compressed and your only allowed 12 hours 10 of that for sleeping  :D :D    Working with this Peppermint stuff has invigorated my mind where I dont need the afternoon nap for the other two hours,  I will eventually just type ROD  but if I use OD there may some thought that I am on drugs  :D

Hello
I am a 70 year old just coming off the Windows plantation.  I bought a couple really nice 2 GIG R61 Thinkpads  cheap that needed and OS.  Saw  "English Bob"  review on YouTube of Peppermint and decided that would be the way to go.  Its only been two weeks Still learning the slang and how things work

Anyway in your first post announcement of Peppermint respin you end up saying "Now go get it"  Except There is no link and I dont have a clue  Where I would go to get it to see what other things I can get in to.
I went to Peppermintos page and the announcement said go to the  Peppemintos forum to try it. The only thing I found was the announcement there which took me back to the Peppermintos.com.   All rather confusing
And as an add If anyone has any good suggestion for books on learning the "slang" I would appreciate id

You can download it by going to https://peppermintos.com/ and clicking a download button.  ;)

How do I get the new GRUB background and Plymouth splash screen in my current Peppermint 7 installation?

EDIT: I figured it out. I noticed plymouth-theme-peppermint-7 was updated, but it didn't switch the default theme from peppermint-7 to peppermint-7-spin. I edited default.plymouth to change it. FYI, somebody spelled plymouth wrong in the Description. :P

What are you running Peppermint on? / Re: ASUS Eee PC 1005HAB
« on: October 25, 2014, 03:38:23 pm »


I am curious though I see he has android installed on his what that might be like does it turn it into a tablet with touch screen and apps with a keyboard???  just wondering...  LOL   :)

It doesn't have a touch screen, however there's YouTube videos showing how to mod it to install one.

It's like having a tablet with keyboard & touchpad built-in. I also use my Logitech Anywhere MX wireless mouse while it's on my desk at home. It runs faster on the 4.0 release, but there's a lot of apps I like to have that require 4.3+.

 I've tried various Linux distro's on this aging netbook & Peppermint is the fastest. Chrome / Chromium was always agonizingly slow on any other OS, but not on Peppermint.

I'm currently triple booting Peppermint 5, Android-x86 4.4r1 & Windows 7.

Thanks for the replies. I disabled ppa:a-v-shkop/chromium and no longer get the error. I added ppa:chromium-daily/stable/ubuntu trusty main instead.

dpkg -l | grep chromium
