I reinstalled the 101 Kernel in Synaptic, that didn't help- Grub still didn't see it on boot up. I may have had sketchy Internet during the original Installation, maybe it got broken. The Kernels that I see -96, and 99 boot up OK. What is the Terminal command to delete a whole kernel?  People say just search for instructions here but every page I find then links to some Ubuntu instructions that go back to 12.4, then when I ask if that would work, they say, "You didn't find it here".

I really don't know what I'm doing well enough to not break something without specific instructions- I really thought this might be pretty simple- can't I just purge and reload Grub from the live Pep9 DVD, or do that from the BOOT-REPAIR disc (that would install the Ubuntu bootloader, I presume). Is it bad to use that on a Peppermint GRUB?

I installed BOOT-REPAIR in Ubuntu and collected info- this is the link:   It does list the 101 Kernel, but NOT the -96 Kernel which still shows up in Grub (why I think it was some kind of attack, no reason for that to disappear, it was fine). Any ideas would be welcome on it's or any recommended solution.

Oh, I was checking the UEFI firmware boot order in SETUP and I clicked ADD Boot method to check it out, but it opened a window bigger than the screen, couldn't close it, when I clicked on button barely showing on the bottom, Ubuntu 18.04.4 LT had disappeared from the list... but it still shows and loads on the Peppermint Grub.

try booting up into a previous working kernel, remove the newer ones that dont work then reinstall them in synaptic. that should reconfigure grub and the kernel then reboot and see if it works. ive fixed things that way in the past.
otherwise i use rescatux live iso to do it, also heard mx has a grub repair in their mx tools which is worth a look

Dear Peppermint development team.

I was wondering if it is at all possible to add a feature that allows ALT+F4 to bring up the Peppermint Session Logout options when the user is viewing the Desktop, like it is seen in Linux Mint or Windows.  I tried to create a shortcut for that on Peppermint 10, but it overrides closing active windows/programs and displays the session logout options instead.  Is it possible to make session logout options appear only when viewing the Desktop when pressing ALT+F4.

Thank you for all your help, and you guys are doing a great job with this OS.

I found a comment from the Libre Office website that seems to indicate that Libre Office can open .wps files.  I might install it and test it out but I was wondering if anyone that has Libre Office already has done this before.

I found an online sample of a .WPS file and DL'ed it. Works well enough on this box...   ;)

Hi there, thank you for your welcoming me.

Hi Spence, yes I do understand the reasons. I only mentioned the idea of a rolling release and those 2 distros because I think I read something about changing the base of Peppermint for future releases.

While we are moving on to ubuntu base 20.04, there are no current plans for rolling release.

Still I wonder if it's worth to launch a Peppermint generation on every LTS release, since the life cycle of the LTS Ubuntu 16.04 will be supported until next year, 18.04 until 2023 and 20.04 until 2025. Wouldn't be better to have some free hands if 18.04 didn't happen in Peppermint OS. Or, let me rephrase, since Peppermint 9/10 is based on LTS Ubuntu 18.04 (supported until 2023) is it logical to have next Peppermint on Ubuntu 20.04 when it is expected that the next LTS will be probably 22.04 (just one year before the end of support for Peppermint 10 Respin)? Skipping one LTS version wouldn't benefit all the developers by allowing more free time while they run a supported distro for time between versions?

It has never appeared to have really been a problem previously.

One note, all these years after I tried Peppermint for the first time, I find it more robust and polished.

#teampeppermintOS appreciates your praise. However, all acclimations, kudos, praise & thanks for the robustness & polish of prior PeppermintOS releases lay firmly at the feet of our beloved lead dev, guru & best friend PCNetSpec..

As for more work for you, unless an installed version of PeppermintOS is broken, there's never any need to update or upgrade: until LTS support ends.

Maybe we'll just hold off on a new version of Peppermint until Mrs Santos gives the go-ahead for a fresh install  ;D

The main reason for not wanting to fresh install a version too often is that my wife is a pain in the neck and she always finds a way to give me more work than I really need.

Say whaaat ?!?  :D Are we sharing wives ??? :P
