Would very much like to try, but have never done this before.
Downloaded the file, double-clicked on it and get this message:

New Users / How to configure Dropbox in Nemo? [Solved]
« on: April 16, 2020, 06:53:39 am »
There is no detail in software program on how to configure Dropbox for Nemo (at least none that i can see) and i don't want to install something else that i might regret, so if someone knows how, it would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you!

Update: found it!
Dropbox was in the "internet" section of the menu!
How blind can i be?!
Everything is up and runnin' now.

Apologies for the "disturbance!"

I'm sure it can be done somehow.
Just not geek enough.

This did not resolve my initial post but did manage (after search on da web) to create a shortcut! :)

Open Peppermint Settings Panel/User/Keyboard Settings and added a shortcut with
systemctl suspend
and gave it alt+1 as command.

You mean, click menu icon then the little green "logout" button in the top corner with its subsequent drop-down menu?

That's much longer than any Winders10 can do.

In that case, isn't there a hotkey that can be assigned?

Power options have "suspend" set on hitting power button, but when i do that, a pop-up menu shows up with all the options (reboot, suspend, shutdown etc.)

Will have to install Gparted to get the details, but it looks like that spare room was divided into / - home and -swap.

It works well and probably good enough for my situation since i've been using Dropbox for years now.

Maybe i'll be more courageous in 2020 and follow up on previous tips.

Best wishes to all at Christmas and in the New Year!!! :)

There's about 55G free on the SSD with 8G or RAM.
Think i'll give it a shot and just let Peppermint decide in a try out.

The Omen - glad you asked - was wondering about that too! :)

Also, do presume trim enabled or not is a non issue with Peppermint 10.

Happy Christmas to you all!

Always fun to see ZebedeeBoss on Destination Linux.

So far, all i've done in a dual boot situation with Win10 on my SSD is set everything to /

If this isn't the ideal setup to get PeppermintOS at its best, then I'm all ears as to how to make it happen.

Did try 32bit but it was too sluggish - (do have Legacy).

So, went back to 64bit and so far so good!
The only different touch i did this time is uncheck shadows on windows.

From a Cornwall, Ontario native (living in U.S.) to friends in Cornwall, UK - cheers to a beautiful distro by the devs and friends!

Thanks PCNetSpec - would never have thought it possible.

Even if laptop runs with an SSD and 8G of RAM (but 4G is really its maxed out limit), it is still an old machine.

By "quiet" i mean the intensity of the CPU fan.
On Windows, i know it's the search feature makes it go on (and eventually goes off)
but it varies on the Linux distros. Youtube page open on a tab, even without any video running has an impact there too.

But anyway, i'll take PeppermintOS 32bit out for a drive and see how it performs.
Hope to still install latest Vivaldi.

I'm a distro hopper...

So far, only LinuxMint MATE and Solus Budgie have been basically the most "quiet" on my HP EliteBook 8460p.
Do like latest Peppermint 10 Respin but just don't find it as quiet.
Which leads me to wonder what could be done?
Could installation of 32bit instead of 64bit do the trick?
Never tried that before.

Just thinking out loud.

Started listening to the video and was convinced to take PeppermintOS out for another spin.

Did listen a few times to Destination Linux but have never known that Zeb was a key player for this distro.!
Subtitles and colored squares on participants there would be welcome.
