Software & Applications / password fail (SOLVED)
« on: March 31, 2020, 02:26:12 pm »
Lenovo T480s running P10
the extra level of security was setup at installation so at initial boot-up i have a boot password then login password.

the laptop shutdown due to low power on battery.
i connected ac adapter and booted up.
i entered the 'boot' password but it failed so i re-entered the password.
again, it reported 'failed password'.

the error '60 seconds going to sleep' came up so i powered the laptop off, waited 10 seconds and powered up.
now all i get is a repeat of the above scenario.

i have been able to get to a terminal input type 'unix command  input' that states the following:
No key available with this passphrase.
cryptosetup (nvme0n1p3_crypt): cryptosetup failed, bad password or options?
Please unlock disk nvme0n1p3_crypt:
how do i get around this? i don't need the extra level of security so it can be removed.

Software & Applications / upgrade from P8 to P10 (SOLVED).
« on: October 21, 2019, 11:04:04 am »

i am an amature Linux user at best.
i have been using Peppermint 8 now for two years. i had wanted to be free from the Microsoft ball and chain for years before finally pulling the trigger to go fully Linux. i absolutely love it and will not look back.

like i said, i am an amature. i do not write code, i am not into gaming or graphics. just a ordinary home user searching the web and email user.

so my question is: should i upgrade to Peppermint 10?
what are the advantages to doing so?

any thoughts or input from the Peppermint user group and or Guru's is much appreciated.

thanks much to all...

Hardware / Touch Pad partially disabled (SOLVED)
« on: March 26, 2018, 12:34:54 pm »
hi to all.
recent install of Peppermint 8 on IBM Thinkpad.
i was customizing the touchpad pointer speed and the pointer now will not allow me to select or click on anything on the screen.
it still moves across the screen in a normal manner but will not allow me to click on any place i choose to open or close.
if i logout and then login as a guest it works normally.

any ideas? comments?

thanks to all.
