I am new into the Linux field.

I am trying to load Peppermint on my old Vista computer.

First, I was loading Peppermint from a USB.  I was replacing Windows with Peppermint and during the installation, the laptop continued to go to sleep and I had to pushing the power on button.

Second, Once Peppermint was loaded and when I open up Firefox it is telling me it could not connect to server.  I tried to connect to multiple websites.

Third: When I tried to shut down I am get an error message: GDBus: Error:org.Freedesktop.login1.OperationInPregress: Thers's already a shutdown or sleep operation in progress.

Does anyone have any advice?

Thank you

Hello and Welcome to Peppermint @charveyjr!

In order to help the forum moderators help you, first please boot back into your installation medium, select "Try Peppermint" instead of "install Peppermint"... Then if you can connect to the internet there via ethernet or wifi,  please supply them with the terminal output for

Code: [Select]
inxi -Fz
for your current installation.


PeppermintOS 8,9 & 10 Respins currently installed  on:
'16 Antec Aria rebuild
PMX Respin on '18 Asus VivoBook

Do not despair, grasshopper...
    with patience all will be revealed...
       Through pain, enlightenment will come.

Hi charveyjr, as spence mentioned, you do need to establish an internet connection while in the live session. You will also have to open the power manager and select never in all instances concerning the computer sleeping or turning off the display, etc. Due to the age of your computer, your Network card drivers may no longer be automatically installed in the newer Linux kernels and have to be installed seperately. That's why the info spence is asking for is so important.
What was I thinking?
