Goodbye Peppermint, Hello Manjaro

I have installed Manjaro on my oldest computer and I bid a fond adieu to Peppermint OS. To be perfectly honest, I really didn't believe that Manjaro XFCE 16.06 would run on this old machine.


It was a very simple install. I did have to go with the proprietary drivers. I downloaded Chromium but it didn't work very well and I had to return to Firefox.

Thus far, I have played videos, played music, read some of an ebook from my Amazon cloud, connected my Steam account (downloaded a game), blogged,  and did a little Facebook, with no problems.

The next items on my list will be setting up printers, software (like smple screen recorder, webcam, etc.), and tweaking Firefox with my favorite links and settings.

Have a happy and safe Memorial Day weekend everyone.
