Advanced Topics / (SOLVED)How to restore icon size and fonts (SOLVED)
« on: July 10, 2015, 01:50:12 pm »
Hi Pepperminters! A friend of mine returned her PC because Peppermint 5 would give an ATA4 error. So, I fixed this problem. However, now I have a new problem when it did boot to desktop. I see huge icons and everything else is suuuper tiny! I can't read anything. Menu is small, terminal is small, etc. How do I retutn to its original size?

Updated, upgraded, restarted pc and it is working!

Networking / How to change IP address and subnet temporarily
« on: May 23, 2015, 11:19:47 am »
Hi Pepperminters!

I have a bricked D-link DIR-615 router and I need to change temporarily the ip address and subnet of  my laptop in order to upload the .bin file 192.168.0.1 and restore from the settings. How can I change the ip address temporarily without screwing-up the ethernet network. These are the steps I need to do:

set your PC to 192.168.0.2
power on and hold the reset button to the DIR-615
once you see the power light flashing amber once a second, log into http://192.168.0.1
upload the .bin file.

Advanced Topics / How to get ADB to work on Peppermint (Android)
« on: April 30, 2015, 08:58:54 am »
Greetings fellow Pepperminters!

I need to know how to get ADB to work on Peppermint (Android). I have a ZTE Grand S-lite with MTK(Mediatek) processor. Android version is 4.2.2. The cellphone immediately recognizes when it is connected as USB storage, media device (MTP), Camera (PTP) or charge only. None of these really require a "bridge". Now, what I really want to do is have ADB recognize the cellphone.
I ran these instructions from terminal:
adb kill-server
adb start-server
* daemon not running. starting it now on port 5037 *
* daemon started successfully *
adb devices
List of devices attached

And nothing is displayed...

lsusb lists the device ID as:
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 0c45:62c0 Microdia Sonix USB 2.0 Camera
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub

Obviously the first one is the camera and the second and third are the internal and external storages of the phone. I have also created a file 50-android.rules in /etc/udev/rules.d with the following content:
SUBSYSTEM==”usb”, ATTR{19D2}==”USB-VENDOR-ID”, MODE=”0666″

Did I miss something in this entry? I then rebooted my system and my phone, and tried again:
adb kill-server
adb start-server
* daemon not running. starting it now on port 5037 *
* daemon started successfully *
adb devices
List of devices attached

Still nothing... Now, I found a bash function to detect and register all adb devices in the system:
UpdateAdbUsbIni () {
    INIFILE=${1:-$HOME}/.android/adb_usb.ini
    mkdir -p $(dirname $INIFILE)
    DEVICES=$(find -L /sys/bus/usb/devices -maxdepth 2 -path "*/modalias" -printf "%h\t" -exec cat {} \; | awk -F: '/icFFisc42ip0/ {print $1}')
    echo -e "\nRegistering Vendor IDs for the following ADB devices:"
    for D in $DEVICES
    do
        echo -e "\tDEVPATH=$D Serial=$(cat $D/serial) VendorID=0x$(cat $D/idVendor) ($(cat $D/manufacturer))"
        echo "0x$(cat $D/idVendor)" >> $INIFILE
    done
    VIDS=$(grep ^0x....$ $INIFILE | sort -u)
    echo "$VIDS" > $INIFILE
    return 0

If this works, how do I go about creating the file? Where does it go? In /etc/udev/rules.d  ???
I do know my device's Vendor ID. In "USB Debugging" mode, I have tried connecting the cellphone in different USB ports and different USB cables (just in case it is the cable). Any help is appreciated.....

Hardware / Re: Booting with ^[[2~^ repeatedly
« on: March 21, 2015, 12:43:21 pm »
Forgot to mention, I did test the memory and it did pass. So my guess, as well as yours, is probably the video chip that is "giving-out" and it's "spitting" the errors I'm seeing.

Hardware / Booting with ^[[2~^ repeatedly
« on: March 21, 2015, 12:24:35 pm »
Hi fellow Pepperminters!

I recently installed Peppermint 5 for a Haitian friend and after install, I changed the language to French since he requested it. So, I changed it by edit /etc/default/locale:

LANG="fr_FR"
LANGUAGE="fr_FR:fr"

It booted and rebooted fine and I handed him the laptop. Two days later, he returned the laptop because he wants me to change it to Spanish. Not knowing French fluently, I was able to change to language settings to English but it is now booting up with errors. It gives me the following symbol/number repeatedly  ^[[2~^ ^[[2~^ ^[[2~^ ^[[2~^ ^[[2~^ ^[[2~^ ^[[2~^ ^[[2~^ ^[[2~^ ^[[2~^

Afterwards, it gives me the the list of what is started or stopped and on the right hand side it says [OK] on everything. The boot log also shows that everything is "OK". I verified if there are any propriety drivers in case the video was screwed-up but it shows none available. Did I screw-up by changing the language? To make sure it wasn't a hard drive problem, I pulled-out the hard disk and installed it on my laptop. It ran flawlessly! No weird messages.

I'm starting to think its the video chip that is overheating because at shutdown it gives for a split second the different fuzzy colors when a video card is damaged or on its way. If that's the case, my friend needs to buy a copper shim and some thermal paste so that I may fix it. I noticed there is still some French language still behind when it boots and when I try to re-install Peppermint with the CD, it gives me the same problem. Any help is appreciated.

Hi Guys!

A friend of mine from Haiti wants me to install Peppermint in French; I don't know if Haitian Creole French from Haiti is available. Since I don't know Haitian Creole French or normal French, I want to install Peppermint in English and after updating, then switch to French. Will this be a "smooth" change? I know we have the option to choose a different language using the "Language Support" for menus and windows.

Software & Applications / Boot "hiccups"
« on: February 26, 2015, 09:31:19 am »
Greetings fellow Pepperminters!

My laptop boots 98% without a problem. However, very seldom does my boot "hang" in a black screen after Peppermint's splash logo and never reaches to the desktop screen. I verified the boot.log file and EVERYTHING says "OK" for the exception of:

Skipping profile in /etc/apparmor.d/disable: usr.bin.firefox
Skipping profile in /etc/apparmor.d/disable: usr.sbin.rsyslogd

At the very end of the boot list, I have "Starting VirtualBox kernel modules". Could the VirtualBox kernel at times hang the boot? VirtualBox does have the latest update and I use it frequently when giving evening classes. Any ideas from your behalf is much appreciated  ;)

Software & Applications / [SOLVED] libavcodec54 libavformat54[SOLVED]
« on: February 22, 2015, 10:49:26 am »
Greetings fellow Pepperminters!

I'm trying to install an app called ClipGrab (http://www.noobslab.com/2015/01/clipgrab-is-now-available-for-all.html) but I'm getting a message that it won't be installed:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 clipgrab : Depends: libav-tools (>= 6:9.14) but it is not going to be installed
                   Depends: libavcodec-extra-54 (>= 6:9.14) but it is not going to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
It also mentioned "Since Ubuntu dropped ffmpeg with 14.04, a symlink from /usr/bin/avconv to /usr/bin/ffmpeg will be created as a temporary workaround." Um, eh, that workaround did not work.

I checked on Synaptic Package Manager and it has no broken packages reported. Afterwards I ran
sudo apt-get autoclean
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade

Which then gave me:
The following packages have been kept back:
  libavcodec54 libavformat54
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 2 not upgraded.

What am I missing? Uninstall the libavcodec54 libavformat54 versions and install the most updated versions?

I entered at the terminal the following commands:

xset s off
xset -dpms

DPMS is Disabled is now disabled.

But the Screen Saver:
 prefer blanking:  yes    allow exposures:  yes
still says "yes"
