New Users / Adding programs to Menu
« on: September 21, 2018, 06:41:46 am »
I've downloaded a few (hopefully) reliable programs from their websites and while Installing them works fine I don't know how to add them to the Menu.
Do I have do install a program for that or do I have to use the command line (if so, how?)?

Thanks in advance!

New Users / How to disable the Advert Blocker (SOLVED)

Is it possible to disable Peppermint's Advert Blocker? It's a great tool but I really need the option to whitelist certain sites.

Hardware / Black screen/no full boot?
« on: June 17, 2015, 05:47:24 am »

First post here and it starts with a problem.  ::) I've been using Peppermint 5 on and off for a year and now upgraded to version 6 and really like it! The problem is that after I've been using it for a while the screen turns black on boot. The computer doesn't seem to reach the full boot since one touch on the power button and it shuts down. I'm an old laptop Dell inspiron 1525 and as far as I collect I had this same problem when using Ubuntu 12.04 or/and 14.04.

I got some tips on Google+ but there is no way I can use them (for example [sudo service lightdm restart] since the screen is black and the system doesn't respond. Someone mentioned Nomodeset but I haven't got a clue what that is.

Anyone recognizing this problem? Any tips? (Right now I'm on my Lubuntu live-USB.)
