Andy, thanks a bunch for taking up the reigns. It means a lot to have people passionate about a project willing to help out where they can.

I like how enthusiastic the reviewer is. I am a bit puzzled by how much emphasis he puts on customizing the desktop, but then again I pretty much never customize the desktop so I guess that part isn't really geared toward me.

BTW, the LXappearance custom colour thing *is* an upstream bug .. it seems it should be saving the custom colours to ~/.gtkrc-2.0 but it isn't  :-\

The devs seem to be ignoring the bug .. probably due to the switch to Qt

I'm operating under the assumption that all of LXDE's GTK components will be unmaintained from here on. It sucks because a lot of them are quite nice.

It's certainly interesting. I'm going to have to adjust my workflow a good bit, but overall I'm liking it so far.

Software & Applications / Re: LX panel indicator applet plugin
« on: July 14, 2014, 10:56:52 am »
I've not really messed with LXPanel's indicator applet plugin so I can't really comment, but the Xfce panel can relatively easily be added in as a replacement. You'll need to adjust your default panel in the "Default Applications..." app and you'll need to make a few other adjustments as some of the Xfce panel applets require the Xfce desktop. Therefore the applet that handles shutting down, rebooting, and logging out should be replaced by an application launcher that launches "peppermint-logout" instead. Basically it just takes a little bit of trial and error to get what you want, but post here with specific questions and we should be able to help.

Hi folks, thank you very much to the creator of peppermint and peppermint 5, it has replaced mint 17, as the speed and usefulness is outstanding.
Tried lubuntu 14.04, it's good, but not as nice as this peppermint 5.
Maybe my parents will switch over to peppermint 5, as i got them both liking and using mint 13 and now mint 17 for some time now, maybe the speed boost and nice effects, etc. will sway them, will see, hehe.
Sharing Freely is the ticket to a nice today and tomorrow.
peace love light

Thanks for the kind words. :)

What you'll likely need to do is install a plugin called Pipelight and enable Silverlight functionality with it. From there I would install Firefox to use with it:

Code: [Select]
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:pipelight/stable
apt update
apt install --install-recommends pipelight-multi
sudo pipelight-plugin --update
sudo pipelight-plugin --enable silverlight
apt install firefox

From here I would install a Firefox extension that allows you to switch the user agent. There are several of these and pretty much all of them allow you to use a Windows user agent string. Once done and the user agent is set, you should be able to access Silverlight content within Firefox.

Note that Pipelight, and thus Pipelight's version of Silverlight, require something called the "Netscape Plugin API" (NPAPI for short) which current versions of Chrome and Chromium no longer support, this is why Firefox is recommended for this.

Actually it looks like Screenfetch is a good enough alternative to where we shouldn't have to mess with it at all. Good call.

Right on. Looking at the code, it's very simple and there are a lot of things that could be seriously improved: multiple "if" statements where "elif" statements should have been used; a distinct lack of "or" statements to save processor cycles; the obvious lack of a generic fallback for unrecognized distros; etc. Anyway, the most recent commit was only 12 days ago so either someone has very recently decided to start maintaining it again or that someone was just really put off by the lack of XFS as a listed filesystem.

Anyway, I've got it working here. Because I have a little bit of time today and because it's such a simple program, I'll rewrite/fork it and make something that works a little bit better.

It would probably be as easy as adding a "try/except" with a default back to an existing or generic ASCII art pattern. Why the developer didn't do this already is somewhat puzzling. I'll take a quick look.

Should we try and correct this in a respin?

I'm not familiar with Archey at all, but the terminal output you're seeing indicates that it's written in Python and that there is an error with the application that causes it to reference a variable that's not been assigned yet. Could you perhaps post a link to where you downloaded it from? I have a little bit of time today and can maybe help shed some light on the error or get you some information for a bug report or something.

Yeah, the reviewer hit many of the high points. Not bad. Also I like that one of the comments notes that we don't really use LXDE in a strict sense, but rather use a combination of components.

Excellent. I'm glad it worked for you. Hopefully we'll be able to do a little more research on it and get an official tutorial up at some point in the near future.
