my temporary wallpaper on my Peppermint OS 3 install
An Acer Aspire One came into my possession recently, and the question was, “Which OS are you going to load on it?” That should be obvious! Peppermint!
We are proud to announce the release of Peppermint OS Three in both 32 and 64 bit builds. This edition is based on Lubuntu 12.04 and, as always, uses some features from the ever awesome Linux Mint. Both builds are available as free downloads and will be available via purchasable live cd/usb in the very immediate future. . . We’ve taken a different direction with the look and feel and have decided to go with a very light theme and default artwork. . .We’re still including some Google and Pixlr apps as well as some Peppermint related links.
– Peppermint Three is the first distribution to ship with GWoffice by default. This is a desktop Google Docs client that is lightweight and runs completely independent of Chromium. It’s still beta software, but we feel it offers a great improvement over using Docs from a browser or SSB.
– The GIMP 2.8 is in the Peppermint repository as opposed to version 2.6 that is available in the upstream releases. This version has been a long time coming and offers some improvements over the older iteration, notably a single window view.
To get my Peppermint Three going….

Record Your Desktop – This is an UbuntuLinux friendly recorder (a few more here). To get it going, follow these steps:
The PAVUCONTROL program–Pulse Audio Volume Control–actually works like Soundflower in re-directing the audio flow to a virtual sound driver. You can do this on Mac with Soundflower (and HyperStudio has a proprietary virtual sound driver that works great) and on Windows.
In the DEVICE box, recordMyDesktop said DEFAULT. If that setting doesn’t capture your audio, try changing “DEFAULT” to pulse, as shown above. Default should work, however.
