General Discussion / Peppermint 9?
« on: April 26, 2018, 11:20:21 pm »
I was just curious, being that Ubuntu 18.04 has been officially released now there will be a lot of distro's jumping to the 18.04 base. Xubuntu for instance already made the jump.

My question is, will there be a peppermint 9 or whatever it would be called, based on 18.04, and when will it be released?

Thanks for the kind words, but I just spoke the truth.

This distro is my number one. It's on all my pc's.

It's crazy fast and crazy beautiful.

GNU/Linux Discussion / Official peppermint os community chat?
« on: October 25, 2017, 10:06:00 pm »
I found a irc chat room on freenode, and was wondering if that channel is considered the official chat room?

Because that channel is a ghost town, there is never anyone there, except a guy that doesn't speak to anyone named Mr 0..??

I have to admit I am used to the hub bub of #ubuntu and #ubuntu-offtopic.

Is peppermint just too small a community to drive a lot of help chat, or is there another one somewhere else?

I also add xfce4-screenshooter because I think it's the best screenshot solution.

The first thing I do is install chrome and remove chromium. I am a netflix user, and there are a few other things that make chrome better for me than chromium. Then I install firefox, followed by htop irssi mc and links, which is my cli toolkit. Then I install virtualbox and teamviewer.

I have also found that arronax is very useful for adding my own programs to the start menu. After making your own desktop file, I just drop it in /home/user/.local/share/applications.

I'm also an astronomy nut, so i install stellarium.

What do you folks do to your peppermint?

Software & Applications / Re: guvcview runs strange

Sorry I am responding so late. I forgot about this post.

I ran the code you asked me to run, and yes, guvcview now launches with first run, perfectly.

Software & Applications / guvcview runs strange
« on: August 22, 2017, 10:17:52 pm »
guvcview has to be run twice before it will start properly on a fresh boot. afterwards it runs with one click. once you re-start the computer, you again need to run guvcview twice. What's up with this?

When I run Stellarium, it opens for a second, then crashes and closes.
