Title: Peppermint 6 Review by Linux Help Guy
Post by: jlschwartz on June 09, 2015, 08:40:19 pm
There is a nice review by Linux help Guy of Peppermint 6 on Youtube at https://youtu.be/RawEFM95iAI.
Sorry if I didn't post the url properly.

I'd say you did OK on the URL, we can see the video.   ;D

One point I don't agree on:  I wouldn't go as far as to say it's *not* good as a Win7, 8, 10, etc. replacement.  However, experiences will vary.  If you want something with the same look and feel of those newer systems, certainly Ubuntu or Kubuntu would be better fits.  However, if you don't need all of that, it can certainly replace those systems.  It can definitely replace XP. In fact, as he said, definitely get it, install it and don't look back.  Nobody should be running XP anymore for ANYTHING.  Too high risk.

One thing I definitely like about his review is that he gets it.  Too many people focus only on the cloud side of Peppermint and don't even mention that it's good for older and slower systems, which is (I think) one of Peppermint's biggest strengths.  However, he pointed that out.  Finally, a reviewer gets it.

Anyway, nice review, thanks for sharing.

The apply button .. THE APPLY BUTTON .. hit the apply button damnit

 really liked it up until about the last minute .. I've replaced lots of Win7 installs with it, and would do so again in a heartbeat.

OK maybe I'm biased but I'd have done so with pretty much any of the Peppermints .. sure, not for "looks", but if that's all you use an OS for you need help.

He "got" the cloud/local thing which I'm impressed at, what he missed was if "looks" is what you're after Peppermint is as customisable as any Linux, we don't do it out of the box because
a) we wanna be light OOTB
and
b) it's then the USERS discretion how much bling and weight they want to add.

What I'd like to know is:- As the LINUX help guy, does he suggest ANY Linux distro as a replacement for Win7/8/10 ? .. and if so, what do they do that Peppermint can't ?

I don't mind anyone who comes up with real criticisms, in fact I welcome them so we can improve .. what I'm less impressed with is blanket statements like his Win7 thing without an explanation .. what the heck are WE supposed to take from that, let alone the viewer/user ?

Great review right up until the blanket unexplained comment at the end .. pity, I thought the guy had our vision nailed, then SLAP, face meets palm.

I was also yelling at the screen, HIT APPLY, HIT APPLY - FOR GOD'S, HIT APPLY ;D.  I was also very disappointed with the inaccuracy of the summation.  I did leave a comment thanking him for the review.  I also mentioned that one of my Peppermint Six machines originally had Windows 7 on it and it runs like a rocket.  The comment about gaming was a little confusing.  He did try and correct himself, albeit rather clumsily.  Unfortunately, the review was conducted using a flippin' VM.  I do wish reviewers would stop doing that.  This review is a prime example of the unsuitability of the medium.  All the fiddling around gives the wrong impression to people who have no idea what a VM is  - Grrrrr  >:(!!.   He was about 85% of the way to fully understanding what Peppermint is all about.  I think we can balance out the faults with the enthusiasm he showed towards the distro.   All in all, it was a positive, albeit a slightly flawed review  ;).

I must say though after searching for the guy on youtube, I'm mighty impressed that he's not just doing a single review of Peppermint, he's doing a series of them .. and even has our wallpaper on his youtube channel header (pleasant surprise) :)

One point I don't agree on:  I wouldn't go as far as to say it's *not* good as a Win7, 8, 10, etc. replacement.

I agree, Peppermint 5 and 6, in my opinion are both considerably better than Windows 7.  In my house we've replaced Windows 7 with Peppermint 4, then we moved to 5 and now 6.  We did try Windows 8, and, yes, it's pretty.  But Peppermint is much more user friendly.  And, we've also had more than our fair share of AVs.  One thing is for sure:  We don't miss them!

Is Peppermint 6 always a replacement for Windows XP?  No!  Not always. (It depends on if the old XP computer can any longer handle Chromium/Chrome software.  Sometimes it can't.)   But this said, I suspect the Linux Help Guy is correct most of the time.  I have replaced XP on one friend's computer with P5, and it's running so well that I'm leaving the darn thing alone.  And probably within a week I'll be replacing another XP installation with Peppermint 6.  I'm waiting now for the Peppermint 6 stick to arrive in the mail. 

Yeah, we're going to install Peppermint 6 on that old XP computer, and we're going to do it the classy way this time!   ;)

All and all, that was a good review.  It moved right along --as quickly for me as two shakes of a lamb's tail!  :)

Thank you, jlschwartz, for posting that.

I'm glad he's doing more reviews, because I was thinking that he didn't really touch on anything more than installation and the basics.  He didn't even try out the web, package management or how it does running programs, which I'm assuming he does in later videos.

really liked it up until about the last minute .. I've replaced lots of Win7 installs with it, and would do so again in a heartbeat.

What I'd like to know is:- As the LINUX help guy, does he suggest ANY Linux distro as a replacement for Win7/8/10 ? .. and if so, what do they do that Peppermint can't ?

Yeah, that was the part I really didn't like either.  I was like "wait, what?"  I like Peppermint way better than Win7 and I'm not even going to talk about how much contempt I have for 8 and why Peppermint is 1,000 times better than it.  It seemed like the review was going so great until then.  I too would like to know what he considers a "suitable" replacement for Win 7, 8 & 10 and what he thinks they can do that Peppermint can't.

The only thing I can think of is he's thinking of giving users a more familiar desktop environment with all of the bling that Win7 has (or, as I call it, useless fluff) which KDE would be closer to, and that stupid tablet interface that Win 8 has, which Unity or Gnome-shell would be closest to.

I'm not a fan of the stripes either.  (I'm glad JLschwartz mentioned that, since I missed it the first time ;))  I think they're ugly and they can be distracting.

OK to remove the stripes .. open a terminal and run these commands in sequence:
Code: [Select]
cd /
then
Code: [Select]
sudo wget https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/11876059/Peppermix-Dark_remove-stripes.zip
then
Code: [Select]
sudo unzip -o Peppermix-Dark_remove-stripes.zip
then
Code: [Select]
sudo rm -v Peppermix-Dark_remove-stripes.zip
now log off/on .. and you're done.

Stripe removal instructions above ;)

Yeah, you don't want to do it how I did it.  I accidentally removed the theme.   :o  I didn't realize you didn't include all of the files necessary for the theme, so I just tried replacing the existing folder with the one you supplied.  Oops.  (no big deal, I'm going to boot up the Live CD here in a bit and copy what I need back over)
Title: Re: Peppermint 6 Review by Linux Help Guy

@ scifidude79

Or just reinstall peppermint-artwork:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install --reinstall peppermint-artwork
then remove the stripes as per the instructions above ;)
Title: Re: Peppermint 6 Review by Linux Help Guy

Post by: scifidude79 on June 10, 2015, 02:01:33 pm
I followed your instructions to the letter and I still have stripes.

Edit:  Hm, it looks like your instructions copied the "old" files over but didn't replace the other ones.  I just did
Code: [Select]
gksu nemo
and then copied everything manually.

Note:  restarting lxpanel makes the main menu not have the stripes, but you still have to log out and back in for it to work with Nemo (and possibly some other stuff.)

I did much the same, only thankfully I backed up the original Peppermix-Dark theme.  I knew it had gone pear shaped when the Peppermint Control Center wouldn't open.  It's was a quick fix and I now have a non-striper.  I wasn't sure at first if I liked it.  On reappraisal, it does look better

I still can't make my mind up  :-\ .. I definitely prefer it in nemo, as there was a glitch that stopped the stripes going all the way to the bottom in some circumstances .. but I think the menu's a bit too light now, I may try darkening it a little.

waddaya all reckon ?

Maybe if it was darkened to match the black in the Desktop Pager.  I think that would be really sharp looking  ;).
Title: Re: Peppermint 6 Review by Linux Help Guy
Post by: PCNetSpec on June 10, 2015, 06:56:56 pm
OK Andy, here's a slightly darker one, not quite as dark as the pager, but if you go much darker than this you sstart to loose the separator lines and the slight diamonding effect in the menu background

anyway, replace:
/usr/share/themes/Peppermix-Dark/gtk-2.0/images/other/oriental-4.png
with this image
https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/11876059/oriental-4.png

(https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/11876059/oriental-4.png)

It's definitely darker but not by a huge amount .. you still get the separators and diamonding effect, the text stands out better as does the red menu mouse-over highlight.  <-- that's my opinion, but I'd like to hear yours
Title: Re: Peppermint 6 Review by Linux Help Guy
Post by: AndyInMokum on June 10, 2015, 07:52:38 pm
I tried the Desktop Pager black myself and you're right.  It's slightly too dark to be used for this purpose.  I think your compromise has hit the nail square on the head.  It really looks refined  ;).

I like the one you uploaded earlier today, without stripes.  I think it looks good.  Though, I'm not usually very picky when it comes to desktop themes.  I was just using the regular Peppermix one until you posted that thing without stripes and I decided to try that.  I like it, so I left it like that.  ;)

Hi,


This is really a personal preference thing. I never noticed the "stripes" (I guess you are all referring to the slightly darker black, very fine vertical lines in the menu background? If not, please correct me) until this discussion about them got started. When I look at pictures without the stripes, I prefer the original with the stripes. But to so excited (as the Linux Help Guy was) about such an insignificant (and for me almost invisible) aspect -- well it just seems a little strange.  :-\


I vote for the stripes.


Regards,


-- Slim

First  - you're correct we're talking about the stripes in 2 places, the menu background and the left hand panel of the nemo file manager.

Yep, each to their own .. and this is why I'm not considering it as an update .. you can guarantee if I remove the stripes some won't like it, in fact in the first review PM6 had the guy whooped with joy as soon as he opened the menu after changing theme and praised it "because" of the texture .. so there's no pleasing everybody :)

As I said before though .. there WAS a glitch in the way the stripes behaved in the left panel of nemo .. so I'm happy that was changed, and will include that in any respin.

I've just realised whatever image is set for the lxpanel menu background is also set as the menu background in ALL gtk2 applications such as GIMP (or Firefox)

Open Gimp/Firefox/other gtk2 app .. select "File" or any of the other menus and the menu background is the same as whatever the lxpanel background is

So the darkest plain one .. this one:

(https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/11876059/oriental-4.png)

makes the most sense as it kinda unifies the menu's across gtk2 and gtk3 apps (such as the desktop right-click context menu).
