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.

Take some time and let your back recover.  Respin can wait.  Happy Holidays to you and your family. :)

Hardware / Re: New SSD Slower Than Mechanical Drive

Thanks for all the ideas.  It turns out the UUID for the swap partition was not the same as blkid.  I changed that and it made a huge difference.  :)  I think I'm ok now.  For what it's worth, Clonezilla was used to clone the drive.  This is an old Lenovo x130e laptop that only has Sata II so it will never be as fast as Sata III but at least it's a bit faster.  Before I made this change it took over a minute for the bar to go across on the starting screen.  Now the starting screen flies by.   ;D

Hardware / New SSD Slower Than Mechanical Drive [SOLVED]

I just installed a new Crucial SSD cloned from a mechanical drive with Peppermint 10.  It seems run slower than my old drive.  Any thoughts how to speed it up?  Thanks.  See my system specs:

I believe Peppermint 10 is based on Ubuntu Bionic Beaver.  Xenial is an older release of Ubuntu which I believe Peppermint 8 was based on.  I have no idea what Linux Mint is based on.  Suggest you switch to Peppermint 10 and problem solved.  :)

Welcome DaveVM  :)

Not sure what happened, but when I install the office pack from the command line it installs with no problems at all.  Apparently, the issue is just with the software manager install.  :-\

Thanks for your help.  I'll just avoid the the Photography Pack for now. 

The Pepperment Office Pack give an error: An Unhandlable error occurred.  There seems to be a programming error in the apt daemon.  Under details if shows Freedesktop.dbus. error.noreply: Did not receive a reply.

On the Photography Pack the error indicates that Package Dependencies cannot be resolved.  The error could be caused by required additional software packages which are missing or not installable.  Under details it says Peppermint-photography-pack: Depends: Darktable but it is not going to be installed. 

This is on a new install of Peppermint 10 32 bit on an Acer Aspire One AOA-150.

A big welcome to the new Mint users.  You'll love Peppermint.   :)

So glad that Zeb is enjoying the USA.
