New Users / Re: Broken Firefox (SOLVED)
« Last post by VinDSL on August 19, 2019, 09:13:36 pm »
OT:

I just ran across a site with mixed content; and I'm seeing these Fx dialogs:

[First dialog] https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/68.0.2/content-blocking/start/?step=1&newtab=true&variation=1

[Second dialog] https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/68.0.2/content-blocking/start/?step=2&newtab=true&variation=1

[Third dialog] https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/68.0.2/content-blocking/start/?step=3&newtab=true&variation=1

And, yes, I'm only seeing part of the web site. The rest is being blocked by Fx (as it should).

I'd be fairly confident it'll work, the comments seem to suggest it works out-of-the-box with no additional drivers required in Ubuntu and therefore Peppermint :)

You were right. Snapped it in the PCIE slot, one screw, powered on the computer, and entered the password. That was it. Works fine.

I think sometimes people read too much stuff online :) .

Or, not enough.  ;D

I wasn't being whimsical or sarcastic when I remarked that Lua would be fun.

I like Python just fine, but Lua IS more fun... than Python.

New Users / firefox --ProfileManager

Here's a weird one for you...

I haven't used Fx in years; until recently. Then, while testing P10, I've suddenly taken a liking to the latest ver.

I always used to purge Fx immediately from my drive, after doing a fresh OS install. I tried to install the latest ver on my P7 machine, last night, but gave up (for the meantime) when it wouldn't connect to the net.

Today, I gave it another shot. After trying this n' that, I checked to see what would happen if I tried to load Fx from CLI.

It still wouldn't connect to the web, but strangely, it didn't give any error messages in CLI.

I finally discovered that my profile had been deleted, when I purged Fx (like 3 years ago). haha

I ran:

Code: [Select]
firefox --ProfileManager

I created a profile; and BOOM! Fx connected to the Internet.

Will little wonders never cease?

Why has everyone apparently got it in for Python lately :-\

Seems ideal to me for non performance critical stuff.

I think sometimes people read too much stuff online :) Python is fantastic for a lot of things. And the huge selection of libraries/modules available for use make it easy to do so many things with it. And maintain and iterate them quickly.

What are you running Peppermint on? / Re: Laptop recommendations
« Last post by VinDSL on August 19, 2019, 06:32:51 pm »
Exactly  :)

I live or die by my Intel Core i7 Dell E6430 'refurb'.

I triple-boot this 'E-series' Dell with winders 10 (stable) & winders 10 (skip ahead); and use it equally for both pleasure and business purposes.

All three OSs fly like the wind.

I bought this lappy for $200ish and added a couple of hundred dollars worth of upgrades; high-end wifi card, SSD, slice battery, et cetera. Working on them is a breeze; and parts are available for pennies on the wholesale dollar on eBay.

Really, I'm totally happy with it (15 sec boot). It's not wanting for anything, and I don't plan to replace it anytime soon (if ever).

Happy hunting.

Hi KamenkoTV,

It is very easy, nevertheless, to install and set up Openbox in Peppermint 10. I suggest, however, the even lighter weight and very similar Fluxbox. I use both of them, but find myself using Fluxbox much more often. I have a tutorial explaining the configuration files for Fluxbox that you can find in this link on the forum.   ;) It is perhaps a bit dated, but the basic information about Fluxbox is still very useful. Peppermint 10 flies with Fluxbox. Give it a try -- if you like Openbox better, then just remove Fluxbox and install Openbox8)


Regards,

-- Slim
