Same as you running live in USB just as quick as a full install, even quicker if the the distro loads to ram like puppy linux.
 Maybe the “how much faster a system will be once installed to a hard drive” quote goes back a few years to when we had to use CD or DVD to run a live distro?

Linux Support / Re: Debian 11

I have been running Devuan Chimaera which is basically Debian Bullseye (11) without systemd since October 2021 on my main desktop and slightly longer on my old laptop with no stability problems at all. In fact the updates have been very quiet of late.
The upgrade from Devuan Beowulf (Debian 10 Buster) went without a hitch as well but that is a lot more recent than Debian Jessie that you are running.
Although you should note that I do not run any of the software that you list.
[Gazz - thanks for your PM.  I can't change the text from bold to normal either.  I'll look into it.

Hardware Compatibility / Re: Brother Printer problem

Hi Don

Yes probably worth trying a re-install it won’t do any harm.
 The other problem I have had with Brother printers is that there linux drivers are 32bit so I have had to install the package “lib32z1” to enable them to work on a 64bit system. But as it sound like your printer has worked in the past this must must already have been done.

So many problems with printers over the years you can grow to hate CUPS!

Hi Don

My Brother HL-1112 printer also stopped working recently when I upgraded to Devuan Chimaera. When I looked at the print settings found that the Enabled box was no longer checked.

Unlikely you have the same error as you have not just upgraded Peppermint but probably worth checking anyway.

Linux Support / Re: Persistent menu how to cancel

Had a similar problem on MIYO linux (Devuan+openbox) which I use on my old laptop and the solution I suggested came from a video by guy who made that.
So although it will work I should have known that Mint would have an easier method ( i.e. Brian000 post ).

First post so I hope this works!
Open your File Manager as root e.g. Open the terminal and type

sudo nemo
Then enter your password (I think your on Linux Mint from a previous post)

Then go to Filesystem root (listed on the LHS) then usr > share > applications
and find the icon you want, click on it with RMB and open with text editor.

Then if you scroll down to where it says Categories and remove Network from the list and save.

Note: I tried this with HexChat on my computer and it worked but not 100% on Teams.

PS. If there is no Categories listed you could try adding
NoDisplay=true  at the bottom of the file.
