Greetings Peppermint Users,
We’re both proud and happy to announce the first respin of Peppermint Three in both 32 and 64 bit editions. The downloads are live now via our standard download links and are also available for purchase in both CD and USB format. The respins offer a fully updated install as of November 5th, 2012, so you aren’t left needing to download hundreds of MB of updates immediately after the install. In addition, we changed the desktop notifications back to the way they were in Peppermint Two after several users noted that the way they were implemented in Three seemed to be a bit of a step backward compared to the previous iterations.
For users already running Three that also want this, it’s actually quite simple: simply install the packages “notify-osd” and “notify-osd-icons” via the Software Manager, Synaptic Package Manager, or a terminal, then remove “notification-daemon”. From there, just logout and log back in and the notifications will be fixed.
There are some other minor bug fixes and miscellaneous details that have gone into it, but nothing of notable concern. As always, Peppermint is free to download, use, and modify to whatever extent your heart desires, excepting some media codecs and Flash, but we do greatly appreciate any purchases you make from us and any donations. Thank you for downloading and using Peppermint, and please give us feedback.
