To start
Alt + F4 quits the currently focused application.
Alt + F2 brings up the Application finder.

By default Peppermint 10 uses Light DM as its login screen, it should be a simple matter of typing out your user password and hitting Enter on your keyboard.

Neither of those key combinations have anything to do with logging back into Peppermint. Can you please be more descriptive with your question?

@dougbkk I moved it to the installation guide at https://peppermintos.com/guide/downloading/

The goal in this move was not intended to create a roadblock but to limit unintentional downloads of the iso.

Thanks for bringing this up, I'll add a reference on the homepage to the iso download and user guide.

it will not fit on 4gb usb

Nobody ever claimed it should, I don't think. Most sensible people would be trying to use at least 4GB RAM in this day and age, never mind a system drive.

Peppermint doesnt include a lot of software out of the box because its about allowing the user to make that choice and look at it more as a base to build your own distro. MX is a fine distro but its fully loaded like Mint, its not for everyone. Either way good luck with your linux experience :)

Installation / Re: New pc AMD Ryzen build, new install + dual boot issue. (Solved)

Well I managed to sort it. I checked the P10 install on the old 80gig hdd and there were no fat32 partitions anywhere. So I connected the ssd back up and ran yet another P10 live session!
I opened Gparted and deleted all the partitions again then formatted the whole drive into one ext 4 partition.  Then I reinstalled P10 for about the fifth time :D after double checking there were no fat32 entries on the drive. Rebooted and yes everything was back to normal  :). How strange was that then.

Installation / New pc AMD Ryzen build, new install + dual boot issue. (Solved)
« Last post by demag on July 02, 2020, 02:04:46 pm »
I built this pc this week with a Gigabyte Aorus Pro mb. I set the bios to Legacy and dual booted P10 and Win10 64, Windows is an old install (a few years) but my P10 Respin install was on an old pata/ide hdd so could not be used with this board. I used an old sata 80gig hdd and put P10 on it, updated grub and everything worked, got the grub menu at startup to boot into P10 or Windows no problem.

The old hdd was very slow and not in good health so I fitted a Samsung Evo ssd and once again burned P10 onto it but this time when I booted and updated grub Windows did not show up. When I restarted the pc it booted straight into P10 with no grub menu which had me puzzled.

I looked on the Disks utility and found the Evo ssd had formatted partition 1 as Fat32 during install and was mounted at/boot/efi. Partition 2 is Extention 4 though, so I ran a live P10 session and formatted the ssd as Extension 4 then reinstalled P10 onto it. I got the same result and can still only boot P10. I checked bios and it's still set to Legacy so nothing has changed there.

I'm going to change the boot order in bios and see if I can boot Windows and then I might refit the old 80gig hdd and see if that will dual boot but I would like to use the ssd simply for the speed.

the website got a complete overhaul and the links are now available under the user guide page, it was done during our move to a new host.
