Is it possible to use Ice (the SSB) on Peppermint One? I was able to install the package, and can see Ice in the internet submenu, but when I try to create a new one, it does not save/appear in any menu.

You can just install Chromium. It has it's own ssb maker built in. You can find it under: Tools > Create Application Shortcuts. It will let you put a link on your desktop, in your menu our both. I believe it defaults them all to the Internet menu though.

It would be cool to have the ICE app on Peppermint One. I hope someone with much more knowledge chimes in on this one. I would love to be able to use them both.

just of the top of my head, ice and peppermint one store the menu entries in different locations.
/usr/share/applications/ for One and ~/.local/share/applications for Ice seems any apps you create with Ice would want to place a .desktop file in the appropriate location. And since the menu refreshes from /usr/share in One, it won't find an entry that Ice created if it's in .local/share.

And that's just for starters. Seems to me to get it to work would take a bit of editing to get Ice to put all the associated files for the app where they need to be to run right in One.

I tried it once and got the same result you did. I removed Prism and installed Ice. It installed just fine and I could bring up the program to make webapps but the webapps never showed up. I'm guessing there was something that wasn't installed or configured properly but I didn't know what it was, so I just switched to Peppermint Ice.

The issue there is the lack of the existence of the target folder where Ice stores the icons. Since the icon can't properly be stored, it closes with an error. If you run the application in a terminal you should see this. I'll try to code in a workaround and get an update out sometime early next week.

That explains a lot. Could one put a folder with the proper name into the proper directory into Pmint 1 and then run Ice?

I tried to get away with a symlink between ~/.local/applications/share and usr/share/applications, but that didn't work. I did create the ~/.local/applications/share and created the <place>.desktop. I just moved it to /usr/share/applications and everything runs fine.

Thanks for that tip. It works well to create web apps, though you don't get as many options as you do with Ice or Prism. You can't specify the name, icon or location. You can change the name and icon by altering the .desktop file in Leafpad but I don't think you can move them out of the internet folder. Either way, it's a cool feature, one more reason to love Chromium. :D

Same feature in midori, and, oh my, but they load quick. One more reason to love midori, as well :D

I've never heard of that one but I just installed it. It certainly is fast. It kind of reminds me a bit of Opera and Chromium but very lightweight, even more so than Chromium. I think I'll leave it installed and see what it can do. Thanks for the info. :mrgreen:
