Advanced Topics / Panel preference tweaks [SOLVED]
« on: October 26, 2014, 03:14:02 pm »
Hi all, In need of 'experienced assistance.'

1. Is there any way to add a search facility to the panel? I can't seem to find it in the 'Panel Preferences' [Advanced] tab.

2. Also, Is there a tweak to show the function 'name' opposed to the icon for the panel item?
I seem to remember an option to do this but, it may have been in an xfce distro used in the past.. :-\

Help would be sincerely appreciated  :)

What are you running Peppermint on? / Acer AO533 revived
« on: October 25, 2014, 05:44:06 pm »
Hi folks,

This Acer AO533 came with Windows 7 starter which lasted about 6 months from new before I eventually ditched it. (even with a 2Gb DDR3 RAM upgrade it was slow)

Having experimented /tried various distro's as a linux newbie, Zorin, Linux Mint Xfce (Maya), Xubuntu, Pear OS 7 & 8 and Elementary OS to name a few over the last two years, I have happily anchored peppermint 5 to my Acer AO533.

  To speed things up more,I have upgraded this AO533 with a Sandisk SSD and Peppermint 5 flies on this with the btrfs (file system)
Around 12-15 seconds to login screen from cold boot and 3 seconds to shutdown..wow! (having tweaked and optimised things for the SSD.)
Instead of Chromium, I opted for Mozilla Firefox as a browser (due to having 15 years experience with it) purely for the advantages of tweaks, plug-ins and config settings for security and optimisations.

I love the speed and simplicity of this distro without too many bells and whistles.

Who says old net-books are dead?  ;)
