New Users / dpi settings utility [SOLVED]
« on: July 09, 2019, 06:18:25 am »

I note in PM10 there is a dpi settings utility. On my PM desktop the menu labels and tray icons are very small on my laptop screen. Is it possible to use the dpi settings on PM 8. I cannot increase the size of the above items simply by increasing the resolution. I have tried already.

New Users / PM 8 live usb persistence hanging solved
« on: July 04, 2019, 02:32:53 am »

I  have been running Pm 8 on a live usb  with persistence for many months and it is working well. However, I was installing some new software via terminal ( a software manager)  and had to reboot. Unfortunately, the live PM8 now hangs on starting up screen. (I can start up on the try PM without install option).

Any ideas how to make persistence option load?

New Users / Installing from live usb (SOLVED)

This might seem a silly question. If I fully install PM8 or 9 from a live usb with persistence onto my HD -  will the personal data on the persistence part of the usb also be installed? ie will my browser and saved bookmarks etc  be retained on the new installation? I guess not but I would appreciate a definitive answer. Thanks

How do I change time in Peppermint 19?

I am using live ISO with persistence. The automatic time change does not seem to work.

In built web cam on MSI machine is not being picked up by PM 8 live USB. Actually, it starts off ok then drops and doesn't  come back. Used guv, cheese and VLC.

I have a f6 toggle on off but it does not bring it back.

New Users / Is there a way to update PM 8 to PM 9 from PM8? (SOLVED)

I cannot produce a PM9 live ISO. Is there a way to upgrade PM8 to PM9 from within PM8. Or is the only way to get PM9 to download directly? (SOLVED)

Advanced Topics / installing using gparted

This may not be in the right section, please advise and I will relocate. I am new to Linux.

I am trying to install PM8 onto my SSD using the 'something else' method. I have PM 8  live on a usb running well. I have a ssd with windows 10 and a Hdd for data. 114 GB and 1 TB respectively.

There are no passwords on the live usb (I assume root has none either and can be accessed by sudo?)

I have not partitioned before so I am trying to get some advice. I have read quite a lot around it and am reasonably confident in partition allocation etc. But I have some basic issues though.

I am trying to use Gparted as provided in PM8. I cannot get GP to work (greyed out menus) and it says I need root privileges.

If I partition using GParted I am concerned that my new partitions will only be root accessible and not myself as user - due to install from Gparted and live ISO? I would like to be able to access partitions and  transer all files from windows and Linux and vice versa without permission problems post partition.

I realise there is a lot in the above but any guidance would be helpful.

Installation / Also stuck at starting up

Using both PM8 and 9. Live USB. Loading is fine from USB up until starting up. Then hangs. No escape when escape is pressed.
