you could setup the update icon onto a separate panel and have it set to hide.

But what would be the point?

Yeah and you could setup the update icon onto a separate panel and have it set to hide. I forgot about hiding panels. Silly me  ;D

Panels are nice, but they're a nuisance and waste of space on portables, especially on 10"-14" displays. So, I either 'always' or 'intelligently' hide them, depending on the screen size.

Anyway, one can kill multiple 'birds' using one stone, by hiding the panel. It's a great feature for saving precious real estate, if nothing else.

Hi kloos,

Please post the output of

Code: [Select]
inxi -Fz
if necessary, from a live USB session.

Also, have you tried booting into the previous kernel? If you can do this, then post the output of the above command when running with the previous kernel. There was a kernel update recently and maybe that is your problem.  ;)

Regards,

Hmm never experienced that problem. Only once it wouldn't come out of suspend and I had to do a hard reset because nothing else worked.

What are you running Peppermint on? / Laptop recommendations
« Last post by kloos on August 19, 2019, 07:17:52 am »
The screen on my Toshiba Portege is slowly breaking and I fear it is time to jump into the murky world of second hand laptops again.  I had 8gb Ram and Intel i5 so don't want to step down from that as it was quite zippy and coped with spreadsheets and games quite well.  Not bothered about hard drives as everything I do is on the cloud.  It must have HDMI so I can connect the TV.  And I want to keep the price down!

So.... I wondered what your recommendations might be for maximum compatibility with P10.

What are you running Peppermint on? / Strange, but true.. Pentium 4 vs Core 2 Quad
« Last post by tekex on August 19, 2019, 07:08:21 am »
I've been running Peppermint 8, 32 bit (my fave distro) for a couple of years without a single problem. It's installed on an old Pentium 4 with 4Gb ram. Don't be fooled by the old hardware: My Pep 8 runs like lightning. A couple of days ago, I decided to treat myself to a new install of Peppermint 10 64 bit, on a not so old, HP Intel Core 2 Quad Q9400, also with 4Gb ram.

According to 'cpubenchmark', the Q9400 is around 9x faster than the Pentium (3340 vs 373.)

To my amazement, my old Pep 8 32 bit on the old Pentium, runs faster than the Q9400. I made sure to disable all the visual effects, too, etc. It's still noticeably less responsive and zippy than Pep 8. On Pep 8 the mouse cursor is faster, programs open quicker, the whole thing feels faster & lighter.

So, I'm back on Pep 8... until it's no longer supported :(

Software & Applications / Stuck on Log-in Screen (Solved - sort of)
« Last post by kloos on August 19, 2019, 06:07:21 am »
Last night my P10 stopped booting.  I get to the log-in screen but after entering the password, the screen flashed black for a brief second and then went back to the log-in screen.  It is the correct password.  I have 2 other profiles, one of which has no password and they also do the same.  I have re-booted a few times, but no joy.  Any advice?

Welcome To  the greatest Operating System and Forum on the planet Aziel.  ;D

Also...

I'm on a lappy, right now; and I always hide the panel on portables, so that's another option.

One doesn't need to see any of the icons, unless they mouse-over the panel.   ;)

Wanted to revive this old"beast" and introduce my kid to the wonderful world of open source. Nothing fancy here as you can see, just added a SSD and off we go. Mostly running Arduino IDE so don't need massive power. Lightweight and stable. Well done Peppermint team!!!!
