New Users / Secure boot question (Solved)
« on: March 08, 2018, 01:06:39 pm »
This is a pretty idiotic question. My system works and boots with secure boot disabled. Now I wanted to switch my bios settings back to secure boot enabled - and my  Pepp 8 did not boot. So I disabled secure boot and everything is fine again. Sorry for this, but there must be something simple to get my secure boot working again.

Smart .. I'd have agreed right up until the OpenSUSE choice ;)

Uuuh, yes, you are right. I have dropped a clanger.  ;)

My intention was to show that some big cities are smart enough to use Linux. They would be even smarter if they would use Peppermint, I guess. :)

I have read that the city of Rome has done the same. All the employees are free to choose between LibreOffice and Word right now, but LibreOffice will be the future there. The systems are running on Linux (openSUSE, if I am right). Smart!

In my point of view this issue is solved. 4.13.0-36 is fine, not to forget that a firewall, a router and being careful should be more than enough. By the way, anyone using Ukuu? I am not sure if this enhances security?

It's the anti-ubuntu train again ..
This is an interesting point.  Why all the hate for Ubuntu I wonder. :-\

This is what I am wondering about as well. Have a look at Distrowatch. While Ubuntu is downrated, all the *Buntus and Ubuntu derivatives get all the love of the users. Irrational exuberance.

In my point of view, and of course this is very subjective, it looks like that a lot of people get a little bit too nervous about questions concerning data. It is much more likely that collecting even the smallest piece of data is interpreted as something negative, even if it might be intented to be just useful. The Ubuntu installer works and I can not see anything bad if Canonical is trying to make things a little bit better. I would say it is more like an evaluation, not a privacy invasion.

General Discussion / Re: Anybody using Mate desktop?

Peronally I really hope Peppermint stay with the Whisker menu... really like that feature  ;)

You'll probably be happy to hear we've no plans to replace it then :)

Good news. A desktop should be self-explaining, fast and productive, and the Whisker menu fulfills this. I do not want to badmouth all the work that is put in a desktops like Mate, it is solid. But the Whisker menu and the "Windows"-key are just plain and simple.
