Is there anything to install locally as I don't have admin rights on my work pc?

I am using the client and there is a console client
Also browser plugins or just login to website.
Other than that I'm not sure.
Software & Applications / How to install icon packs
« Last post by stew1411 on Today at 05:26:20 pm »
Every icon pack I come across is in the tar.xz format. But you can only install in the tar.gz format. Last time I tried a tar.gz format, nothing happened. It said installing and then the install popup disappeared with no new icons.
You could install the bootloader to the / partition of the new distro. Then boot Peppermint and update grub.

See, I thought it was the other way around! :o   I need learn these basics.  Thank you, murraymint.

Networking / Peppermint 8 sees wi-fi but Peppermint 9 does not
« Last post by Sam25 on Today at 02:47:08 pm »
Hello -

I've just tried Peppermint 9 and it seems it can't see the wi-fi. It's a 4 year old laptop but Peppermint 8 wi-fi worked fine.
Any suggestions on how to revive the wi-fi?

reboot again .. and it should still boot Peppermint first.

GRUB stage one (master boot record) now points to GRUB stage two on the Peppermint partition .. not the Ubuntu partition.

Hello, PCNetSpec, that worked perfectly.  No matter which distro I use, on startup I now boot into Peppermint.  Thank you. :)

Now since I change my secondary distributions quite frequently, what can I do when installing a secondary distribution to make sure I always boot into Peppermint first?  I believe there must be some little thing I've been overlooking for a long time that's causing this problem to occur time and time again.  Since I've got to command something, there's this / or something else I should be putting in its place when installing that secondary installation so it won't boot automatically into it distro #2.  I just don't know what it is I should be doing differently. :-\

Thank you.

You're putting a space after the minus sign and getting the wrong output. It's

inxi -Fz easy for my old eyes to over lookk that.
Cool thanks - just so as I know I am not potentially wrecking my system by doing this :)
