I have just installed Peppermint 10 and the ICE app has no "Remove" tab!  So frustrating!   Grrrrgh.

I had to boot legacy mode, system will not work in UEFI.
Fan issue specific to the model: heat sensor triggers the fan even on light load and reboots the PC occasionally. Simple apps like webcam or browser can lead to this. Doesn't happen in Chromium OS or Win 10.
- I've changed the settings in BIOS, fan operation to silent, CPU TurboBoost (or whatever they called it, I'm not sure) off.

It still happens but on rare occasions and the fan noise is much less in general.

Hello TacoHammer,


Not hijacking your thread but I to also have poor audio output quality on a Dell-Inspiron-660 desktop.

I believe the problem is the lack of the proprietary audio driver because when running Windows 7 or Windows 10 the audio output quality is fantastic. (No Disrespect to Linux or Peppermint)

Fortunately I have several other Linux desktops where the audio is excellent so when needing excellent audio I use one of those desktops.

Here's my output.

New Users / How to mute notifications?
« Last post by srdjanpsy on Today at 01:23:38 pm »
How to simply  mute sound and popup notifications without muting the current media or presentation sound? Something like this: https://cinnamon-spices.linuxmint.com/applets/view/315
If this applet is an option, how to install it?
Also, I'd like to say how much I admire and a thank you to the team working on Peppermint distro, I'm in love with it!

No you don't need to block any updates, you're now on the 5.0 kernel series .. just use your system normally and accept updates as they come through.

You should be Okay to as I think the 36 Kernel is the latest 5.0 one or the latest in the 5.0 Kernels for Ubuntu based systems.
