Now I remember why I deleted Clementine the last go'round... it never remembers where my library is on the 2nd and 3rd drives... I don't want to store my music on the main harddrive... ugh...

Thank you for this work around. Have just resurrected a self build desktop with Peppermint 7 (I had the iso on a DVD) and had the same problem with running Dropbox, searched on this forum for "Updating Dropbox" and your solution was there, tried it and it worked a treat for me.
Once again, thank you,

New Users / Re: Switch to another OS's grub on a dual linux install

In short, I want the computer to use the Ubuntu grub like it was doing
before the Peppermint updates, so how do I switch back to using
Ubuntu's grub ?

I read that to switch from one OS's grub to another OS's grub,
you should boot into the OS of the grub that you want to use and do a
sudo grub-install /dev/sda.

I actually boot Peppermint through via openSUSE Tubleweed, by running Tumbleweed's grub, on my desktop box.

The command in Tumbleweed is:

Code: [Select]
sudo grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg
Which, BTW, works in Peppermint, too.

The only hassle is, whenever I make any changes to the grub in Peppermint, it isn't recognized until I boot into openSUSE and run its grub. Then, after that, Peppermint comes up as a selection in openSUSE's grub menu.

As an aside, I dual-boot this lappy with winders '10'. I prefer to have '10' inside Peppermint's grub menu, so I just do the same thing in reverse. '10' does its own thing.

Did I confuse things sufficiently?   :D

Two distros are enough for me.
I do agree that you should stay in one place to really learn your stuff, but... I've learned much more having to deal with two distros than if I had focused in just one.
You can probably guess my two distros...
EDIT: Why?
fixed vs. rolling
systemd vs. non-systemd
glibc vs. musl libc
Out-of-the-box functionality vs. building every bit-and-piece into place
...and so on...

Be very careful with your /dev/sdX...
Just a guess but, wouldn't booting into the os you want as no.1 and running
Code: [Select]
sudo update-grub
do the trick?
Never felt the need/urge to dual-boot anything. Thought about it twice,... when leaving windows and when joining Void.

You're probably going to need to install the 'wl' drivers.  Something like this: https://goo.gl/Ed46Hw

But, that's just an educated guess.

Probably best to wait for PCNoSleep, before getting too carried away...   ;)

New Users / Switch to another OS's grub on a dual linux install
« Last post by arky217 on Today at 01:31:15 pm »
I had Peppermint installed on my desktop as the only OS for quite a while.
I decided to try out Ubuntu Mate 17.10, so I installed it side by side with
Peppermint for a dual boot. Ubuntu installed it's own grub and it's grub menu
always shows giving me a choice of booting into Ubuntu or Peppermint.

However, when Peppermint installs a newer kernel, I have to boot to Ubuntu and
do a sudo update-grub in order for Peppermint to load and use the
newer kernel, which is no big deal.

Yesterday, however, I booted into Peppermint and installed new updates.
After I did a reboot, I noticed that the Peppermint grub was being used
instead of the Ubuntu grub. In other words, the updates somehow switched
the grub being used from Ubuntu's grub back to Peppermint's grub.

Well, for the time being, I would rather have the computer use Ubuntu's grub
like it had been doing since installing Ubuntu.

In short, I want the computer to use the Ubuntu grub like it was doing
before the Peppermint updates, so how do I switch back to using
Ubuntu's grub ?

I read that to switch from one OS's grub to another OS's grub,
you should boot into the OS of the grub that you want to use and do a
sudo grub-install /dev/sda.

Will this command in fact accomplish what I want to do or is there
a chance that the computer will become unbootable ?

Time for sed .. oinBg :))

Or, just truncate it to 'o'...  ;D

I was into 'hopertitus' for awhile - can't remember how long ago it was, but long enough that I had to burn the images to CD/DVDs - probably, 2006-ish.

Peppermint was just a gleam in Shane & Kendall's eyes at that time.

I was only interested in the new installers that devs were coming up with. If I had stopped there, I would be running FreeBSD, all the way around. In my mind, to this day, there are only two OSs - FreeBSD and everything else.

I don't see any point to it now. I've made my bed, and I'll sleep in it...  :)
