Use shift+c to cut, and then right-click in an open space on the terminal and click "paste.

If you remove all the entries in a category, that category will disappear from your left column, but the programs remain installed and accessible via the search at bottom of the menu @peppycrab....

 ;)

Sounds like an answer...but how do I do that?
If I could move those programs to another category, that would accomplish the same thing, but.....how?

My left column is a bit crowded. Since I never use the programs under "Graphics", I could lose that category. I assume that the shortcuts would remain in the "All" category if I ever had a need for them.

I understand that Menu Libre is not good for Peppermint versions before P9. I am running P8 - any useful menu editing  options for me?

What happens if you open a terminal and run:
Code: [Select]
nm-connection-editor

I was told that I didn't have connection-editor-gnome installed, but it gave instructions how to do so. I installed it, an Voila, my indictor is back!


Are you able to connect to the internet at all on this PC ?

I was, but only to connections that I had used previously. Now I can see all networks in my area. All good now. Thanks!

There was an applet indicator  on the panel when I installed P8. It seems to have since disappeared.
BTW, when I go to Peppermint Settings > Network > Network Manager and click, nothing opens.

I travel from time to time and take my netbook (w/P8). How do I show the network indicator on my panel? Sometimes opening a browser will take me to a login page, but sometimes not.

Possible answer to your first problem (if you don't mind giving up some of your security) -
Change your password to something really simple to enter (as few characters as possible, perhaps consecutive keys).
You'll still have to enter a password, but it will be easier and less time consuming.

Gotta be somewhere 15 minutes ago, but quickly...

Why do you think your Dell can't be upgraded?

Took it to a repair shop. The "repairman" said he couldn't get the RAM necessary. On top of that, the tower has a lock that I do not have the key to.
The "repairman" tried to sell us a custom-built computer. The more I think about it , the more I think he may have been scamming us.

have you tried running Peppermint from a USB  and using the USB wifi adapter? I would think if it works that way it should work even better installed.

Worth a shot. Will let you know.

I hope this is the right topic. We have a Dell Optiplex 780 tower. It was refurbished when we bought it. It has only 2 gigs of RAM. It apparently cannot be upgraded. I am considering setting it up in our guest bedroom. I would remove Windows 10 and install Peppermint, to get better performance from the 2 gigs. The catch - it has no internal wifi. I have been using a USB wifi device. Will Peppermint recognize the device? If I cannot get wifi I'll have to stick to Windows.
