New Users / Re: Plank Dock – Bouncing Icons
« on: February 17, 2018, 06:11:16 am »
I just checked in the preferences panel, and it seems there is no option for that (or maybe there is a more advanced way to make it happen).
Plank is minimalist in it's features and options compared to Cairo and that's why he is light on ressources. If you really want that feature you should give Cairo-Dock a try.

I like XFce and i'm glad to see Peppermint is putting effort into creating something quite unique and efficient by using software's modularity.
That's what i like about Pmint, standing out of the crowd  while still offering a Fast, light & enjoyable distribution (i think that's what every distro should try to do, since they can do it on Linux ) .

I use Plank [emoji41]
See, https://forum.peppermintos.com/index.php/topic,1167.120.html post #133

Same, it's not ressource consuming and it has all the features a dock should have.
Imo besides the need of all the KDE dependencies, Latte has a lotof features that i don't really find usefull (copying docks, separators...).

Software & Applications / Re: XAMPP & "MySQL"
« on: February 10, 2018, 06:05:37 am »
I know sod all about Xampp, but isn't MariaDB just a community release of MySQL ?

The reason I'm asking is because from what I'm reading it appears that it's still installed in a directory called "mysql"
Code: [Select]
(xampp install path)/mysqlso couldn't you simply rename that directory, then install mysql in the same location ?

Obviously you're gonna need to do this with xampp not running.

There are some differences between the two.
The problem is that i use a software called MySQL Workbench which has some good features. But it at startup of the application it shows me an error msg saying that i'm not using MySQL and that i can have compatibility problems and disabled features due to that.

So far i didn't have any problem, i thought about installing MySQL to prevent any harm.

Software & Applications / XAMPP & "MySQL"
« on: February 10, 2018, 05:30:58 am »
I'm actually using Xampp on Peppermint 8. It's interface is showing "MySQL Database running" but in reality Pmint8 is using MariaDB and not MySQL.
i'm trying to install and USE MySQL instead of MariaDB (if it requires completely deleting MariaDB i'm fine with it as long as it doesn't cause any problem)
i tried to find the solution on the net but there are too many ways and it's a bit confusing.
Do you know a "clean" way that allows me to use real MySQL in xampp instead of MariaDB ?

I use a mouse if i'm sitting on a chair, otherwise i use the trackpad if i'm lying on my bed. The mouse offers much more precision and speed, which is necessary when gaming  :)

for whatever reason, i remember in P7/P7R days i used to get a 28-32 sec.
In P8 i was getting 32-34 sec but slowly increasing to 42-50 sec now  :(
also sometimes i get a 1m50-ish sec for whatever reason...
It doesn't really annoy me that much but i want to understand what's going on, how did i alter the boot time (directly or indirectly...  :-\

Can't tell you anything 'bout that! I've never been into games at all. I just don't get anything from it!
My daughter plays Tux, that's all! I've actually never tried that either.
To be honest, the only thing I remove from a Peppermint fresh install are the games SSB's, if it ships with Firefox, otherwise I remove chromium as well.

I see gaming like a hobby/passion just like someone who loves to play football, do youtube videos or even programming.
The only problem i see in gaming is that it can be quickly  become addictive but then the problem lies in the person playing it. Oh and also, unlike physical activities, it doesn't train your body ... Some games can train your brain though  :)

Maybe i'm speaking like this because of my "gaming background" but everytime i see a powerfull GPU/CPU the first thing that comes in my mind : Holly **** this thing can run [Insert High demanding ressource game name here] in 60 FPS no problem ! , and because of this i always thought that the primary reason behind upgrading one's CPU/GPU is for gaming purposes, that's one of the few things that EAT your Laptop/Desktop ressources.

Ah, yes! The notorious Threadripper!  8) Yeah totally out of my price range! So I just now created a Steam account. I'm a complete newbie. What games does one play when one "games?" Wow. I feel like if I have to ask this question I'm not sure I should even be doing this... are there certain must-haves?? I see "free" games! Oh! My favorite!!  :D Oh great. This is the start of something addictive and terrifying, I'm sure. Oh well. Perhaps it will bring focus and purpose to my desktop computing...


As for which game you should try, it depends on on your gaming preferences . Games are divided into genres (RPG - FPS - Card games...etc)
i don't really know which type do you prefer but i can advise you to give Gwent a try. It's a card game so you don't need mad gaming reflexes to play it. It's not time consuming since you can play a game in 5-10min. I think pretty much anyone can enjoy it (it has a Lord of The Rings vibe xD ) and you can run it on pretty much any computer.
