Hi perknh,

Thank you for the nice comments! For those interested in trying Openbox, my sampe config files that are explained in detail in their contained comments are still available as a zip-file download here on the PeppermintOS forum (see the first posting there by our late leader, PCNetSpec).  ;)

Regards,

General Discussion / What about the older releases?
« Last post by completeidiot on Today at 02:45:53 am »
(Sorry for not creating a new topic for this, but I felt maybe it could fit in.)

I have some really old machines for which the newest versions (9 and 10) are a bit too bloated already. For some reason, I cannot find the same old release archive on the official page anymore. Could the older versions be made accessible again?

The 32-bit Dell Dimension 3000 was built for comfort!  I liked listening to the hum of the machine, and I liked its monitor a lot too.

Yes, it whirs right along, literally. It's a very comforting sound, for sure.

The monitor is a Dell UltraSharp U2412M 16:10 wide-screen (1920x1200x24).

And, after some haxoring, the OEM CD-ROM & Floppy (and Zune player) are working on PM10.



But, wait! While I was replying to your post (above) it got me thinking about a vexing problem I've been experiencing with the proprietary nVidia drivers; which I haven't run in years.

Because of you, I now have the Dell monitor booting up in full 'UXGA Wide' mode. It was driving me crazy. >:(

Thanks, Perk!!! It provides a LOT more room for my Conky script...

General Discussion / Peppermint is cool

 Thanks for making such a good OS, even after having given arch and others numerous tries I still find myself coming back to peppermint. ICE is just one of the best apps ever, I dont understand why it isnt on every distribution.
Just keeping this short, There are many things I prefer about PeppermintOS.

Thanks again

Still, here at the abode, it's a pleasant machine to play with, and an excellent test platform.

WMs are always fascinating to me... although I have tried them....very lightly but I never stuck with them to have one grow on me.. ;)..

Me too! ;) 

If I'm remembering correctly, Peppermint used to have a builtin tweak tool back in its LXDE days that could help a user transition Peppermint to an Openbox configuration.  Cool stuff!  One of our Global Moderators, Slim.Fatz, was a whiz with Peppermint's Openbox configuration. ;)

Generally, if you boot into Linux Mint and update grub from there, then Linux Mint grub should be in control of grub.
It may work, it may not.

I added the caveat because you have not provided many details about your set up.
How many OS installations?
Same disk or separate disks?
UEFI or BIOS?
Any form of disk or file system encryption?

Please make sure that you have backups of all your data before trying any suggestion about boot procedure. Backups are essential
