New Users / Re: [Help]: WPS doesn't open on Peppermint 10
« on: April 02, 2020, 01:33:53 pm »

I use wps office, but the new versions do not seem to work for me with Peppermint 10 as well.  I had to go back to version wps-office_11.1.0.8865.  The 9000 series that has come after that won't work, and I don't know why.  As a result, my only solution is to tell you download and install this older version which works very well for me.  I will say that I am able to install use the newer versions on MX Linux, which uses an older kernel, so it could be that it doesn't like the new kernels.  I don't really know what the issue is.  Hope that helps.



You want to look at MX Linux.  It has the best system for what you are looking to do. 


Congratulations Steve and welcome aboard.

What are you running Peppermint on? / Re: Place Holder :)

Wow.  Really a great system Sn33x.  I'm jealous. :)

If you are looking for a free application to open and modify autocad drawings in linux there is none.  Draftsight was the last one, but they stopped supporting linux on 1/1/2020.  If you go to Open Design Alliance at you can download ODA Drawings Explorer for Linux and this is as close as you can come.  You can open, make minor modifications, save, and print dwg files.   Otherwise you can buy ProgeCad, CMS IntelliCAD, and some others that read and write AutoCad files.  To my knowledge the other Free linux cad program out there do NOT support AutoCad files other than dxf, but not dwg which is really the industry standard for 2-d Cad.  3-d Cad is another story all together.  Hope that helps.

If you select other, on the next screen at the top you see an option that says Select Best Server.  If you select that option, it will run a series of tests to find the best server for your location.  Then you can choose that server.

Sorry, but that's not possible.  You must do a full install.

Not sure where to guide you at this point.  Our Leader, who would have worked on such things, has recently passed away and we are in process of determining our path forward.  It is a sad time for Team Peppermint.

My understanding is that it is not possible at this time.  The browsers are hard coded into to the ice app.

I am shocked and saddened by the news.  Mark was a great guy and did so much for Peppermint and all of Linux.  My heartfelt condolences to his family and his many friends both in the UK and USA. 

Welcome to the forum esquire.
