Re: linux mint name change

Peppermint is partially derived from Linux Mint. It postdates Linux Mint by about 4 years, and from day 1 they borrowed a few Linux Mint developed applications such as the Software Manager I don't think Linux Mint should rename just because another later released distro uses a similar name and uses...

Re: linux mint name change

at this point the team should just keep it "linux mint" since it's had that name all this time and that's what everyone knows it by. if they were going to rebrand it, i would suggest naming it "cinnamon" or "cinnamon os" after the desktop environment and then just call the actual desktop software "c...

Re: installation/boot issues with 32bit Mate 19.2

i remember in the days of windows xp, i sometimes had issues installing xp on a system with more than one ram module present. i think it also happened if i had more than 4 gigs present too since it was the 32 bit edition. this was a long time ago, so i don't remember all the details. i do remember t...

Re: How to change font colours

howdy, try installing oomox theme designer from the mint software manager. it's a flatpak application, so hopefully you still have the flatpak "framework" still installed. i just started using it myself, so i'm no expert on using it yet but it seems pretty handy. i haven't figured out how to import ...

Re: [SOLVED] need help: desktop icon label rename background color

so i was close. it was indeed using a gradient effect. seems like an odd place [to me] for a color gradient to be used, but maybe this is easier for other people to read? it's easier on my own eyes for dark background, light text [and borders, etc]. through my various web travels, i've seen where ot...

I'll throw in with 95% linux, i mainly keep windows 10 as a fall back in case there is a game or program i absolutely cannot get to run under linux for whatever reason. since first coming here in 2017, the times i've booted windows i could probably count on one hand. last time was setting up my new ...

Re: [HOWTO] Dual Booting & Windows System Time Incorrect

Thank you Pierre for the other solutions, for some reason I never came across the registry fix in my searches. I'll have to give that a try. I've noticed Windows doesn't seem to lose time if I don't boot all the way into Mint. Have a great day :)

Re: I did it!

Thanks for the welcome everyone. :) I'm glad I ended up with Mint as well. Really solid OS and desktop environment. It should have been my first choice to begin with. On further thought, now that I have my dual boot figured out, I have even less desire to run Windows than I did before. In fact, boot...

I'm a linux newb although I messed with some distros here and there back when I was in high school years ago, starting with slackware....
