A New Peppermint OS Release with More Choices

We’re excited to announce a new wave of Peppermint OS builds – including a brand new category called Peppermint Loaded!

Peppermint OS: Your Clean & Customizable Desktop

Our flagship Peppermint OS stays true to its roots, offering a lightweight XFCE desktop that lets you choose the applications you need. This keeps your system efficient and uncluttered – perfect for those who prefer a minimalist approach. Choose from 32-bit, 64-bit, all featuring the familiar Peppermint experience with only the essentials pre-installed.

Introducing Peppermint Loaded: Perfect for New Users

Many users have requested a pre-configured option, and we’ve listened! Peppermint Loaded is a sleek and fully-populated XFCE desktop ideal for new users or those who want a more out-of-the-box experience. Get started quickly with essential applications pre-installed, including:

  • Firefox
  • GIMP
  • LibreOffice
  • Atril
  • Inkscape
  • Thunderbird
  • Gnome System Tools
  • Timeshift

…and more! Peppermint Loaded is available in 32-bit and 64-bit versions.

A few highlights to mention:

  • Btop++: This powerful process monitor takes the place of Htop, offering a more informative and visually appealing interface.
  • xDaily: We built a GUI for those users who prefer to use this method to maintain their system, thank you to all those in the community who provided feedback for us.
  • pfetch: Our custom replacement for Neofetch, providing system information in a clean format.

Flatpak Support (Peppermint Loaded Only): Peppermint Loaded comes with Flatpak pre-installed for easy access to a wide range of applications. We’ve also forked the Mint Store to seamlessly integrate with Flatpak for a smooth software installation experience. (Please note: Flatpaks are not currently supported on 32-bit systems.)

Finally a few notes we want to share:
You might encounter a delay after running the /usr/sbin/update-system script during installation. This is completely normal and doesn’t signify an error. The installer operates in debug mode, which can cause the update process to appear slower than usual.

Why the wait? The script is automatically updating your system with the latest software packages (updates) in the background. This ensures you have a fully up-to-date system upon your first boot.

From the team we would like to thank you all for your continued support and contributions!
