Peppermint 9 Respin Release

Technology News

 Peppermint 9 Respin, the latest iteration of our operating system. Still based on the 18.04 LTS (long term support) code base, Peppermint 9 Respin still comes in both 64bit and 32bit flavours so older hardware is still supported. We hope you enjoy using it half as much as we enjoyed creating it.

Peppermint 9 Respin Highlights:-

  • Swapped VLC for Xplayer (we’ve had reports that VLC has been getting a little ‘flaky’ for some users over their last few releases).
  • Removed the Linux Mint ‘Levels’ from mintupdate (in line with our update policy, not Linux Mints).
  • Fixed the ICE applications ‘Where in the menu ?’ category names, so they now match the Xfce whiskermenu categories (ie. ‘Sound & Video’ renamed to ‘Multimedia’, and ‘System Tools’ renamed to ‘System’).
  • Added ‘Accessibility Settings’ utility to the Peppermint Settings Panel ‘System’ Category.
  • Added ‘Enable/Disable Neofetch’ utility to the Peppermint Settings Panel ‘Tweaks’ Category.
  • Added ‘System Information’ utility to the Peppermint Settings Panel ‘System’ Category.
  • Added a ‘Transparent’ wallpaper (so users can now set solid colour backgrounds via the ‘Wallpapers’ utility).
  • Added back (by popular request) the Peppermint 7 respin ‘Peppermint-Sunset’ wallpaper (as an option, not as the default wallpaper).
  • Disabled ‘Switch windows using the mouse wheel’ in the ‘Window Buttons’ panel applet preferences out-of-the-box (it can easily be re-enabled should you want it, but it could be awkward for touchpad users).
  • Disabled ‘Show frame’ in the ‘Notification Area’ (system tray) panel applet preferences.
  • Additional wireless drivers out-of-the-box.
  • Added ‘build-essential’, ‘rename’, ‘printer-driver-cups-pdf’, ‘cups-browsed’, ‘pmount’, and ‘ntp’ packages.
  • Added support for mounting LUKS encrypted volumes (libblockdev-crypto2).
  • Added wacom tablet/touchscreen support (xserver-xorg-input-wacom).
  • Changed chess game SSB to ‘Better Than Chess’.
  • Squashed a few minor backend bugs.
  • All updates to date (including the latest versions of mintinstall 4.6.7, Kernel 4.15.0-43, and Firefox 64.0)
