GNU/Linux Discussion / Re: Future of Peppermint
« Last post by rickc on September 14, 2019, 10:57:10 am »
Hi folks

This seems as good a thread as any to cheekily make requests for future editions!

There's two things I'd like:

1. I like the simple wallpaper changer, which I think is exclusively in the lxle distro. It's just an icon in the panel you click and you get a random wallpaper. It doesn't use any system resources when idle.

2. More importantly, any chance of native support for hot corners?  When I orignally moved to peppermint, there was xf dashboard or Brightside.  Brightside has disappeared from the repos, and xf dashboard no longer supports the hot corner plugin.  In any case, native support would be great if at all possible!

Cheers  8)

Software & Applications / Peppermint 10 freezing
« Last post by Boola on September 14, 2019, 05:18:51 am »
Hey guys!

Saw another tread about peppermint 9 freezing so i decided to make this thread. My OS suddently freezes and i need to restart my PC manually pressing my power button.  This happens only after a few minutes when using Eclipse but also when using Apache Netbeans. This started happening today and it have not been freezing before.

General Discussion / Re: Well.... all.....I left..... :(
« Last post by grafiksinc on September 14, 2019, 04:55:43 am »
Yeah I hear you guys I really do.....it was not hoppertitus  that got me LOL  :D
I am sure we all have our own  experiences   with how we got to linux.
Mine started with Ubuntu  way back in 2006 then moved to Mint with the gnome drama....
I stayed with Mint until they started focusing on Cinnamon(I just grew tired of it)  finally I left Mint in 2016 and found Pep. 7 :-*

Why i left.....my hard drive crashed....LOL  ;) (It was 15 yrs) old
 I really had no real reason to leave pep other than it was an opportunity.

I took the Network install from a minimal CD route on Debian LOL

Believe me... I have had my  experiences with bad forum .....folk if you will   :(...... Pep has the best by far forum base to me..
With that said.... I sort of stay away from the deb forums....... have not really needed to use them anyway.

but...Looking back if I had to say the few things that were really starting to bother me about pep ....Now.... this is personal preference..... ;)....but
  • I prefer Thunar over nemo - I just like Thunar's interface
  • I did not like the multiple App Stores....terminal was just fine with me

That was it... petty I know... again it was not the cause of the move.

I did bring Ice with me of course ..LOL

That's why we have linux.... right... freedom of choice....no matter....

New Users / Re: Bluetooth Dongle Not Working
« Last post by Pablito1224 on September 13, 2019, 10:33:24 pm »
Hi and thanks for replying.

The bluetooth dongle is not being recognized. When I go to Menu > Settings > Bluetooth Manager, Blueman-manager opens but everything is grayed out. There is no bluetooth icon in the notification area. At one point, when the icon was there, I attempted to add a device, but a popup told me I had no adapter even though the USB dongle is plugged in and the power indicator is on.

New Users / Arduino serial port problem
« Last post by mick on September 13, 2019, 10:18:25 pm »
My son's Arduino won't connect on peppermint.  It is my understanding that it is a common Linux problem that can be fixed, but I can't understand how. Upon opening the Arduino IDE reads "java.lang.NullPointerException thrown while loading gnu.io.RXTXCommDriver"

what do i do? please use small words :)
thanks in advance.

Interesting

I'm using Fx 69.0 (64-bit) right now, on a tightly wound corporate kiosk, complete with nannyware. These machines are locked-down pretty tight; and, I can see the .png on VinDSL.com just fine :-\

I'll check it out, when I get back to the abode. I doubt if I have auth to shell into my servers from this box...  ;)
