Hey guys!

We dared to express our opinion on what we would like to see in the next version of our beloved OS...


The mirsonni team did well again.  Always dare to express an opinion, you never know when a good idea will spring from it.

I've installed Peppermint, and a few others, on a 16gig usb several times.  I have never set up my partitions, I just let the installer do it's job.  Is there a particular reason you wanted to set up partitioning? 

Hi Romrom54,

Welcome!  I cut my teeth on an Asus Netbook 1005ha.  Not a very speedy machine.

Run systemd-analyze blame in the terminal and the post your output using the Sp(spoiler) view to shorten the post.

I was planning on going to an ssd soon so this might put an emphasis on doing it sooner.....

Thanks Ray!

Software & Applications / error on boot
« on: June 12, 2020, 04:43:38 pm »
Had an interesting issue with my Pepp 10 on my main system.  It wouldn't boot up.  I was getting 'error: attempt to read or write outside of the disk 'hd0'.
I eventually did manage to get into recovery mode and saw I needed to do a manual fsck.  I needed to boot into a Live USB to run fsck but it did fix my boot up issue.  What is that error issue?  I googled it but saw some different answers.

To echo everyone else, great job, Joseph, even the font.  I can finally read spence's green, without squinting, with the font this size....  :D

Hello rickc,

How old is you dvd player.  I seem to go thru one every few years.  They are so cheap and unreliable, in my opinion.  I have issues with my asus dvd player but not with cd's on my desktop peppermint.  Funny how my laptop peppermint reads dvd and cd's fine.

Triple boot with Ubuntu, but what exactly is Boot Repair- part of Peppermint or something else?  Boot from disc? I don't think this has anything to do with Windows- I think it got attacked during the Kernel installation, and something inserted; or it broke incredibly badly. How much of Grub is actually on Peppermint partition, and how much is on the beginning of C drive? Ubuntu seems to be OK (knock, knock).

Boot Repair is it's own thing.  It's repair tools on a Lubuntu based system that you run off a usb.  It not only fixes grub but it fixes Windows boot, too.  Check the link I added in the previous post.  Here's another link about it:

Until one of the more experienced Users can supply an answer I have always used Boot Repair to repair any grub issues.  It sounds like you are dual booting Windows and Peppermint?  Windows often messed up my grub when I dual booted.  I don't use Windows anymore but will never dual boot.

Also, Just keeping Peppermint on a usb can be one of the most secure ways to do banking.  Boot into usb, do your banking, shutdown, remove usb.

In the guest account a Guest can't do anything that requires authorization from the admin, which would be your account.  They also will not have access to your files.

If you need to set up your Guest account bring up Login Window from the Whisker Menu, enter your password and go to the Users tab and turn on Allow Guest Sessions*
