Software & Applications / Re: File Managers

If you're still having problems, try:
Code: [Select]
find /media/spence/WD500 -type f -exec chmod 644 {} \;
and
Code: [Select]
find /media/spence/WD500 -type d -exec chmod 755 {} \;



The first command will search /media/spence/WD500 (and sub directories) for FILES and change their permissions to the default 644

The second command will search /media/spence/WD500 (and sub directories) for DIRECTORIES and change their permissions to the default 755

For anyone else reading this, it probably a BAD idea to do this on anything but a STORAGE directory .. in other words, DO NOT do it on / or your /home folder(s).

I give up... am checking add for errors and reinstalling P8 today from scratch.  System froze in the motherboards boot options screen 3x in a row... One last attempt to correct password failed again.  I'm  done triaging endlessly...

"Authentication token manipulation error" is nearly always caused by the file system still being mounted as read-only when you attempt to change the password.

Are you sure you followed the instructions fully .. including the bit where you remount the partition read/write ?

positive... and it doesn't work... is the command still
Code: [Select]
mount -o rw,remount / 
I've done this three times in a row this morning, once with sudo in front and all three times was told the password was successfully changed... but when trying to log in... the new password is not accepeted...

also, the wifi dong'e stuff isn't working in the guest session... I'm about to erase ssd and start from scratch...

Installation / Re: What is Peppermint doing differently?

I meant disable it temporarily so we could see if that microcode bug is the root cause.

Can't fix/workaround an issue if you won't diagnose it ;)

Are there any Windows-only programs that you miss in Linux?

I STILL have yet to find a linux based program that handles photo archiving, renaming and and all as well as IrfanView... http://www.irfanview.com/ just nothing...
