« on: December 18, 2019, 09:31:02 am »
Hi Peppermint Nation

Changes (from Peppermint 10):-

1) All 18.04 base updates to 10 December 2019, including the 5.0.0-37 kernel and HWE xorg stack, nvidia-435, Firefox 71, etc.

2) Added a 'Cursor Resizer' GUI utility to the settings panel.

3) Added a 'Web Browser Manager' GUI utility to aid with the installation/removal of some of the more common web browsers.

4) Reverted to an earlier 'xenial' version of pulseadio-equalizer.

5) Added a Peppermint 6 (LXDE) style xfpanel-switch profile which swaps out the whiskermenu for an old-school hierarchical menu.

6) Added arc-color gtk themes (new multi-colored Gtk themes built from the well known and respected Arc theme), and switched to Arc-Red-Dark as the system default.

7) Updated the default icon theme with some new icons (including the new Firefox/Thunderbird icons).

8.) Fixed a bug where scrolling wasn't working when using some integrated thinkpad trackpoint devices.

9) Installed p7zip-full out of the box.

10) Fixed a bug in ICE that stopped mouse access to the very top part of the screen that caused the toolbar of some web-apps (such as the 'Editor by Pixlr' SSB) to be inaccessible.

11) Fixed unattended-upgrades to work properly in Peppermint. This not installed by default but will now work as expected should the user decide to install it.

12) Firefox and Thunderbird theme locks updated to work with the new default theme.

13) Advert Blocker now includes more hosts file blocklist options.

14) Replaced the 2 current solitaire SSB's with a single new one.

15) Added a DLNnetwork SSB.

16) Added a Pinball SSB.

17) Rearranged items in the Peppermint Settings Panel to include the new 'Cursor Resizer' and 'Web Browser Manager' utilities. We've also (by request) removed the 'Dropbox' item from the settings panel, dropbox-nemo is still installed by default (and accessible via the main menu) but should the user decide to uninstall it, it will now not stay in the settings panel.

We hope you enjoy using the Peppermint 10 Respin as much as we did making it, and PLEASE HELP SEED THE TORRENTS .. TIA :)



There is no need for anyone who's already running Peppermint 10 to upgrade to Peppermint 10 Respin .. In a few days I'll post instructions on how to manually upgrade PM10 --> PM10R.

The arc-color gtk themes are terrific.  Wow!  They bring Firefox's icon to life.    PCNetSpec, as always, you did a masterful job on the repspin.  Thanks so much.   It flies on our computer here.  :)
[T]here are a lot of people happily running Peppermint ICE which hasn't been receiving ANY updates for a while now .. and I personally would STILL consider that MUCH more secure than any version of Windows with up-to-date AV/Anti-malware ;)

will the upcoming upgrade to this remove stuff or just add to whats already installed? have a bunch of custom launchers and applications installed and wouldnt like to see them removed.
looks like the wifi issue ive been having still persists but not too worried as i can fix that easily, dunno what watt os has added to its image because it loads my wifi without any effort whereas most distros dont.
either way good work on the respin :)
For wallpapers ive made you can download them here

The upcoming manual upgrade instructions won't remove anything, it'll just add the new bits
(it will uninstall the pulseaudio-equalizer, and reinstall a different version, but that's it as far as changing stuff that's already installed)

Knowing you're already on PM10 I'd figured you'd wait for the upgrade instructions Johan .. you're obviously very keen :))

Okay, after watching EB's video and seeing that the "Browser Manager" wasn't loading when clicked inside the settings panel (it did work from the main menu), I've pushed an update .. peppermint-setting-panel_10.0.0.4 .. that fixes the issue.

My fault, when making the icons local and removing the script that downloaded them, I forgot to point the settings panel at the new script

Congratulations to Mark and the team on the release of Pep 10 Respin.  Well done guys  ;)!  I'm looking forward to slapping it on to my laptops in the next few day.  I'm sure it'll not disappoint.  Why would it, it's Peppermint - the best distro on the planet :D!? 

A very Merry Christmas  ;D to all the Peppermint gang.  If for whatever reason you don't celebrate Christmas, Season's Greetings and Good Cheer to you!  ;D.  I hope to be back in the saddle, so to speak in the New Year  ;).
