Software & Applications / SAMBA Package Installation Error.
« on: May 24, 2020, 04:53:28 pm »
My Pepp 10 computer had a SAMBA package error when updating & upgrading. This caused Firefox and Chrome to only go to certain sites otherwise could not find server was shown. Tried another machine with Pepp 9 and the same problem. Copied all my data from the Pepp 10 computer and loaded Pepp 10 Respin. Same problem. Presently using a Windows 10 computer to contact you. What can I do? I cannot get into your site with the Pepp computers.

murraymint,

I went into Files right clicked on etc as root. Then, lightdm, lightdm.conf.d, 20-peppermint.conf. There was only one statement. So, I added a second statement " allow-guest=false ". Saved as text. Rebooted. Problem gone. Thank you very much. My friend also says Thank You.

murraymint,

Please read my first post. The rest was confusion as to how to enter the terminal command as root.

Gents,

I do not know the required terminal command. When booting there is a advanced features selection that allows you to choose root. That is what I did. What should I have done?

Well Gents,

For some reason the laptop is booting normally. Very strange.

I couldn't remember how to get into root, so I used the advanced settings during the boot process and chose root. I entered the required terminal command the the system told me " Permission Denied "

What is my next move?

My apologies you are right. I never noticed the option before. I can tell you that I used the standard install. Will advise as soon as I try the fix on my friends laptop. Thanks for the prompt response.

spence,

OEM? I burned the image to a flash drive. It loads as a practice on the OS. From there I clicked on install. I never see a OEM label for installation.

Software & Applications / Guest Session HELP.
« on: January 30, 2020, 10:04:19 am »
Greetings,

I installed Pepp 10R on a friends laptop without a hitch. I visited him yesterday and when he boots; the OS goes into a Guest Session. I can't get out of it  in order to boot normally. If I click on the extreme top right icon all I get is suspend or shutdown. How do I fix this??? Thanks in advance.

PCNetSpec,

It seems to be working with what what I did previously. Should I do this now? No offense.

PCNetSpec,

It worked. Initially I screwed it up. I ran the terminal command and pasted above what was already there. After a reboot; it did not work and I could hear something turning on and off from the speakers. Then I realized how hopelessly stupid I was and went in again and deleted everything and then pasted in your set of commands.

As usual you saved my bacon. Thank You.

HAIL ! PCNetSpec  :D

The first one was when all of a sudden the screen went white with all this info.
The second one was what resulted from the Terminal screen.

Pulse Audio Equalizer just stopped working. I used it last night and saved a profile. When calling it up using VLC to fine tune a video I was watching today; nothing happened when I executed the panel icon. Thereafter, I tried to execute it from the Menu. No good. Uninstalled thru the Software Manager. Rebooted. Ran Terminal...update...upgrade...autoremove...autoclean. Rebooted. Reinstalled thru the Software Manager. Re installed a icon on the panel. Still when I left click the icon, or try to execute thru the menu; NOTA.

What did I do wrong? Thanks in advance for your support.

Software & Applications / Re: Correct installation of GQRX using a RTL-SDR.
« on: December 10, 2019, 02:40:51 pm »
PCNetSpec,

Thank you for the terminal commands to remove a PPA. I have everything working on Pepp 10. How? I have no clue. I kept researching on the net and tried various things that seemed to make sense and that I understood. From memory the RTL-SDR site had the commands to install the correct driver for the RTL-SDR and other TEST commands to check that it was talking to the computer. VOLIA!

Thank you very much for your help. You make Peppermint a very nice experience.

OK. Did not work. 20 hours of effort without it working. Worked fine with Pepp 7. Are the PPA's a problem if I do not erase them. Especially since I have no idea how to do that. LOL. I know this will work. I know this is not your focus. Yet is there a way for you to assist? Thanks for everything. I understand if you can not work with something apart from Pepp.

Gentlemen,

We now we are getting more to the answer. I have the panel size ( vertical ) set to 45. Interesting that beyond a certain value it shows the signal strength. Thanks. I guess we all learned something.
