Yeah there's something very familiar and comforting about red, white, and dark grey :))

Very nice OhThatGuy, I do like "planetary/space" scenes, they're very humbling.

Thanks all!!

@travis82 ... I will just do that for now ... it seems silly having two file managers though.

Software & Applications / [Solved] How to set a custom image for lxlock?

How do I set a custom image for lxlock? I see that is uses i3lock, but I am guessing a is a script that calls i3lock and adds transparency. I would like to remove the unlock indicator and and a custom image, but it seems the -u -i flags are not working.

If I get time I'll look into it, but no promises.....

Thanks for discussing my suggestion and Thanks for looking into it. If these watcher applications get added, I am sure they will be well received.

Thanks for the response, but once I marked them as held it errored out...

Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 peppermint-default-settings : Depends: nemo but it is not going to be installed
E: Error, pkgProblemResolver::Resolve generated breaks, this may be caused by held packages.

Well in theory ... since they are panel plugins, they can be included by default, but just not activated. Just like the Applications Menu or the Directory Menu plugins are currently handled in Peppermint. That way they are there by default but not using system resources until the user chooses to activate the ones (and only the ones they choose) and use them in the panel. This is exactly how Xfce handles it. That way it is a win-win.

Beautiful and Simple Solution. Thanks so much!!

Hi All,

Great Distro!! I have been really enjoying it. I have a few ideas. Since the xfce4-panel is now default, I installed the xfce4-mailwatcher panel plugin (it would be great if this was included by default). This plugin provides notifications of when I have new mail. It also allows me to open my SSB Gmail webapp on click. For example, I have mailwatch to look at my gmail acount and open the webapp on click. the command that is run is send-notify to alert me of new messages.That being said ...

I would loved to see a few new "watcher" panel items just like mailwatch, but does the following:

1. xfce4-calendarwatch - watches google calendar and updates icon new event notification is executed. The panel icon opens a program on click and a command can be run when calendar notification is present.

2. xfce4-rsswatch - watches an rss feed for updates and updates the panel icon when a new article is present. The panel icon opens a program on click and a command can be run when a new rss article is present.

3. xfce4-hangoutwatch, xfce4-jitsiwatch, and/or xfce4-messengerwatch - watches google hangouts  and updates icon when a new message is received. The panel icon opens a program on click and a command can be run when a new message is present. (if this could support various IM programs that would be great too ... if not one for yahoo messenger and jitsi, etc would be awesome).

4. xfce4-socialwatch - watches social media accounts (google+, facebook, twitter, etc) and updates icon when a new message is received. The panel icon opens a program on click and a command can be run when a new message is present.

I am sure you get the idea. The could better incorporate "netbook-like" webapp features into the xfce panel. IMHO, these plugins fit perfectly in the ethos of Peppermint. Even if these plugins were not included by default, but available in repos ... they would still make a great addition to the distro.

Thanks!

This a great distro. I have only had it installed for a few days and It has worked without a hitch. I do have a few ideas about some (what I would suspect) to be some easy projects to include in the next release or so. How do I propose them?

Thanks!

Software & Applications / Can I safely remove Nemo?
« on: December 05, 2016, 03:46:55 pm »
I would like to remove Nemo as I prefer PCmanFM. However, when I go to remove, it states that peppermint-default-session and peppermint-default-settings will also be removed.  How can I remove Nemo, but keep peppermint-default-session and peppermint-default-settings?

Thanks!

A little bit of ChromeOS, a little bit of Linux Mint, but all Peppermint ...
