Hi all, I just wanted to say that I, like many others, care about Peppermint a lot. If I can help with anything at all, I'm more than willing to give my time. I live in Cornwall, UK. And would be more than happy to help with anything, in order to help support this wonderful OS.

You know now days with snaps, flatpaks etc...... I wonder in the future if it would really matter what you base on ...LOL  :-\
Snaps are new so users need to let them mature and once the kinks and bugs are worked out of Snaps then Snaps may not be as bad as everyone thinks.

I've used Snaps on Ubuntu 20.04 and OK they are slow to load and open however once they are opened they work fine.

As for collecting personal user information these day's who doesn't, so get used to it as collecting user information ain't going away.

Many users are so concerned about Snaps collecting user information however have a Windows 10 user in their house and never think about Windows 10 information collecting.

Personally I no longer worry about user information collecting because if the OSs don't collect user information the websites and mobile phones will collect it.

I was in the military for many years and trust me if user information is wanted by whoever for whatever it can be gotten very easily without the user knowing.

Stay safe in these chaotic times we live in these days.

Life is good.  :)

I've got Peppermint running on an ancient Toshiba NB505. the CPU is sloooow but peppermint runs like a champ.
The Toshiba Satellites seem to work well with Peppermint.  Both my wife and I have been running Peppermint for years from our Toshiba Satellite computers, and our experiences with Peppermint has been great.  And we go back a while with Peppermint too .  Our first installation of Peppermint on our first Toshiba Satellite computer was with an unsupported version of Peppermint 4. Yeah, Peppermint 4 was unsupported at the time and it still put Windows 7 to shame! ;)

BTW, welcome to Peppermint, werner1910! :)

Just tried this again and the problem has gone away.  Running xfce4-display-setting in terminal now reports the following:

"Gtk-Message: 17:16:41.181: GtkDialog mapped without a transient parent. This is discouraged"

which I'm fine with...

Thanks for the update and for your help and advice,  I'll give it a go tomorrow.

I'm using a desktop PC so the HDD is presumably a sata connection so shouldn't be a problem disconnecting it. 

Many thanks again for your help and patience.

Regards, Fitzroy.
