Yes, everything's back to normal. I don't understand. What did I do wrong?

Without seeing the contents of that file(s) I can's say for sure.

Can you right click on the file you moved and select "Open With > Text Editor"

then post the contents here.

That one looks fine.

Try recreating the ones you moved one at a time.

After each one, reload the panel/menu with:
Code: [Select]
lxpanelctl restart

When you figure which one broke the menu .. post its contents here.

I don't know, I don't get it. Everything's working fine now. Well, no need to worry. I'm just happy to be up and running again. Thanks!

I've pretty much figured out, thanks to you, how to get all the stuff I need from XP, but I have a question. There's a game that I play that keeps giving me a message that my Flash Player needs to upgraded. I can't seem to figure out how to install it? There's also the fact that I'm not sure which version of Linux I'm supposed to be using. I guess this is all pretty vague. The choices it gives you for download are:

YUM for Linux (YUM)
.tar.gz for other Linux
.rpm for other Linux
APT for Ubuntu 10.04+

I'm not sure which one I should use. I also have another one that tells me I have to install JAVA, but if I try to install it, I get a message saying the install failed, disc full.

Hi Buckwoody

Peppermint is based on Ubuntu so whenever your presented with a choice you would choose the Ubuntu version (APT)

Before you attempt to install Flash make sure you have Ubuntu Restricted Extras & Lubuntu Restricted Extras installed by copy & pasting the following commands into the terminal

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras


Then

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install lubuntu-restricted-extras

then see if your game will work


Good luck



Graeme

I did what you said, but there doesn't seem to be any difference. The Facebook game that asks you to upgrade Flash works, but that was working before. I just didn't know if Flash had to be upgraded for some reason, but the other games are POGO.COM games. I don't really use them too often, so it doesn't really matter too much. Those are the ones that say I need to install JAVA. There is another game though, which I would spend hours on which is a pool game. It's on MINICLIP.COM. For some reason, MINICLIP loads in, and all of the graphics seem to be there, but when I click on the pool game it just comes up blank. I'm not sure if that JAVA thing makes a difference with that?

I'm a little confused here are you saying this Facebook game was working in spite of the Error message ?

As far as the Java thing is concerned I would have been inclined to suggest you to make sure you have openjdk installed but I have that installed on my machine and I'm having the same problem as you with the Pool game

To be honest i don't really know what to suggest other than wait till Mark or someone more savvy comes on board to help with this

I'm confused with the Facebook thing also. It says that the game will run better if I upgrade Flash, but like I said, it runs anyway. Weird! As for the MINICLIP game, I'll see if Mark can figure it out. In the mean time, thank you so much for your help. All of you guys are great!

Hey Mark,
I'll check those in the morning. In the mean time, the pool game is on miniclip.com, and the other games are on pogo.com. I'll get back to you in the morning.

OK, I take it you're on Peppermint 4 with Chromium as the web browser ?

I just tested miniclip 8 ball pool with Chromium and the Adobe flashplayer and the flashplayer always just sat there without loading the main game .. Chrome on the other hand works flawlessly (as does Chromium when using Chromes pepperflash)

So we have 2 options here .. install Chrome (Chrome will NOT work with web shortcuts created with Ice), or get Chromium to use Chromes pepperflash instead of adobes flashplayer.

instructions for making Chromium use pepperflash can be found here:
http://peppermintos.net/viewtopic.php?f=42&t=6176

If you're not sure if you're running 32bit or 64bit Peppermint let me know.
