I recently noticed when logging on to Pep 9 that a little box appears on the top right corner of the screen that says
Sticky Keys
Sticky keys are disabled
and today I noticed this has changed to
Bounce Keys
Bounce keys are disabled
Any one have any ideas what is happening here ??

Thanks again for the help alynur.
My new 2TB external HD has arrived. I am going to partition it with NTFS and Ext4, probably half and half.
I intend upgrading the computer to Pep 9 but I need rid of a lot of shxt files that are clogging up the system before doing that.

Thanks alynur,
I opened up to the (initramfs) and ran the fsck /dev/sda2 (without sudo).
It then ran through all the questions and then rebooted into my usual Peppermint.
I can't say how pleased I am to be back with my favourite OS.   ;D ;D
Thank you very much for great help

take care

PS I will purchase a backup drive today

New Users / Startup help needed [SOLVED]
« on: September 16, 2018, 08:18:41 am »
I need some help with my computer running Peppermint 8.
When I login it shows the Grub login and defaults to a page that says
/dev/sda2 contains a file system with errors, check forced.
/dev/sda2: Inodes that were part of a corrupted orphan linked list found.

    (i.e. without -a or -p options)
fsck exited with status code 4
The root filesystem on /dev/sda2 requires a manual fsck

BusyBox v1.22.1 (Ubuntu 1:1.22.0-15ubuntu1) built-in shell (ash)
Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands..


Can anyone help me get this problem sorted please.

Installation / stalled at the Grub screen (SOLVED)
« on: March 26, 2018, 08:48:22 am »
Hi All,
I had a machine running Pep 7 and dual booting with Pep 8.
I deleted the Pep 8 and now when I try to boot the computer stops at a screen that says
GNU GRUB version 2.02~beta2-36ubuntu3.17
Minimal BASH-like line editing is supported. For the first word, TAB lists possible command completions. Anywhere else TAB list possible device or file completions.
Can anyone help me get my machine to boot again ??
If necessary I will wipe the machine and re-install Pep 7

take care
Don W

I am going to try this. Will need to have a good read through it first  :-\

Thanks Mark,
My version shows 2.19-0ubuntu6.7

Thanks Mark,
This involves a bit more than I thought.
I did check out some forums today and found some useful stuff so I will let this one go.
Thanks for all your help.

take care

PS I am off to start another thread :-[

Hi Mark,
I found this and wondered if it was safe ?

Spoiler (click here to view / hide)
EDIT Mark, I have 2 instances of Wordpress running here, I think. I can start it up and get differing opening pages, and one instance I can load themes etc. with no problem and the other keeps throwing these error 21 can't connect to FTP server ?
