Good god, 2003 seems that long ago I had to run the math(s) to figure out if I'd been born :o

Sadly the math(s) gave me one helluva shock :(

I'll wait till that respin is out then.  :)

Welcome eruditorum, Peppermint was my initial jump from Windows, I keep about 7 other linux distros installed on separate partitions just for comparison. Most of them don't even get logged into for weeks at a time. Peppermint is just too cool and the help here is the best. Enjoy.  :)

Just an update, the HWE update didn't affect the nemo freezing so one of these days I'll reinstall P 10 or maybe just not use that partition until something comes along that I want to check out.

I just booted up into the installed version of P 10 and nemo doesn't have the same problems I was having in the upgraded version. So I don't know what is causing the problem. I think I will wait and see if the HWE update has any affect, if not, then I'll reinstall P 10 on that partition.

I did do the manual upgrade to P 10 and I did add the HWE. But let me see if this is a constant problem for me even in my installed version of P 10 on a different partition. The upgraded P 10 is my daily driver that started having printer problems that are not present in the installed version of P 10. That's why I upgraded to P 10. I'll check that out later this afternoon.

Edit: I have no problem waiting for the HWE update.

Also, this started after I upgraded to P 10 on my desktop. I don't appear to have any problems with nemo in P 9 on my laptop, which has nemo version 3.6.5. Difference with my laptop I don't do any printer stuff on it. But it's not just printer stuff, it's also copying and moving files within nemo or from an external memory. I decided to upgrade this installation to P 10 because I started having printer problems in P 9 an no printer problems in P 10.

Hi PCNetSpec, nemo freezes almost everytime I try to do anything in it, simplescan was just the most recent. I don't remember exactly when this started, maybe a couple of weeks, around the time that Linux Lover initiated a post about nemo being sluggish. I suppose it could be something other than nemo but how can I find that out? I don't care too much for PCManFM due to the lack of some right click options, also I don't know how to get to Networks for file sharing.

Hello Peppermint people. There was a post started about nemo slowing to a crawl, see here. There was no actual solution but I think I can verify that it is the newer version of nemo that is causing this. Nemo version 4.0.6 in my P 10 freezes when trying to save a simple scan to it. I noticed that nemo version 3.6.5 in P 9 works just fine as it always has, in my opinion. So I want to dump the 4.0.6 version of nemo and install the 3.6.5 version. How do I do that?  :-\

I seem to remember, pretty strange for me, about somebody wanting to install without installing grub. Isn't there a code that can be run while in the live session to tell umbiguity(?) to install without grub?

Hi StormR, welcome to Peppermint. Are you expecting a bunch of software icons or something like that? The default installation is a clean desktop, you should only have a panel on the bottom of your desktop.

I just completed the manual upgrade of this installation of P 9 to P 10 and I still couldn't print until I uninstalled the printer and reinstalled it again. It's working good so far. Still no idea why I lost printing ability though.  :-\

Hardware / Re: Printer for PM9

I've been using HP printers lately, mainly because they are inexpensive and easily installed in Peppermint. But I have had problems with them lasting very long. The one I had prior to the current one lasted a little over a year and then started printing a little blurred. My current one is having problems with the scanner, scans to a faded yellow tone background instead of white. I'm looking at a Cannon printer for my next one, more expensive but with an ADF which I need to scan legal size document.

This problem could be more than you are thinking, I am also noticing a big drag in P 9 on my desktop, which is newer(new computer for me). This happens after mounting a usb memory or external hard drive, also in a usb 3 slot. I'll have to boot into P10 to see if it's better there or the same.

Following PCNetSpec's instructions, I no longer have to use the bluetooth dongle for bluetooth any longer in my Samsung laptop.  :)
