You used a multiboot USB stick? Maybe not surprising then. Try installing from a stick that's solely Peppermint.
Installation / Peppermint 9 drops to BusyBox after installation
« Last post by rustywrench on Today at 09:44:46 pm »
I have found what I believe to be a bug in Peppermint 9. It drops to busybox on first boot after install. it is inserting the usb media as root into /etc/default grub. Once this is commented out it will boot perfectly. I am just not sure how to report this bug.
GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR=`lsb_release -i -s 2> /dev/null || echo Debian`
#GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="ignore_bootid live-media-path=/multibootusb/Peppermint-9-20180621-amd64/casper floppy.allowed_drive_mask=0 ignore_uuid root=UUID=3BF3-F239"
Hi, my Video/movie playback is very choppy and pixel out when playing back on local storage. It works fine when streaming, but when I play it of my hard drive, my eyes are fried. Sometimes it gets stuck on one frame. Here is a little image of what I mean:

Pretty bad right? Even worse, years ago my netbook used to be a HTPC (With WinXP) and it worked fine then, but now, with ANY linux, I have video playback trouble. I need to watch my SpongeBob! :D Anything will help, cheers!

Try this...
Right click on the speaker icon in your panel and open Properties.  That will open the PulseAudio Panel Plugin window and you will see "Run Audio Mixer."  Open that and check the Playback and the Output Devices tabs and ensure they are properly set & activated. 
New Users / Turn On/Off System Sounds
« Last post by Cajun_Man0001 on Today at 08:24:41 pm »
I remember in Peppermint 8 I turned on System Sounds and after a reboot I was getting sounds on certain things. 

But on Peppermint 9, I installed ubuntu-sounds and activate System Sounds and reboot and so far no sounds from anything.  I know Sound is working as I played a game and watched a youtube video so I know sound is working. 

Under Customize Look and feel in the Other tab, both Play event sounds and play event sounds as feedback to user input are both checked.

Just wondering if there is something else needs to be installed to get it working, or does it work under Pep 9?
According the AMD website, it's supported. I'll take a look at it later and see what's up and if there's anything else I need to install. If it does work, I'm sure it will be better than Nvidia. Nvidia is nice, but also the source of many headaches, especially with Linux.

Does it display as you want if you type
Code: [Select]
xrandr --output HDMI-1 --mode 1768x992

EDIT: Have a look at the Arch Wiki, it might help...

Get the word out there. Linux? - Try Peppermint.
Hi JoeSh, how's it going  :)?  For future reference, could you please remember to encapsulate all terminal outputs with the Insert, Code # function.  For extra long outputs, please use the Spoiler, Sp function.  If you’re a Chromium Browser and/or a Google Chrome user, please don't combine these functions.  For some reason, they don’t work well together with these browsers.  Only use one or the other  ;).  These forum functions preserve the original format of the output.  This makes it easier for future visitors to relate to their own issues.  These functions are found in the forum editor, above the,  :-[ Embarrassed and  the :'( Cry emoticon respectively.  Use the Preview button to check how it'll look in the forum.  This time, I've done it for you - many thanks  ;).
