This is a very intermittent problem.  WHen it defaults to one monitor It cannot "Find" the other monitor and defaults to a low res mode, 1024 x 768.  It will not happen for several days, and then will happen rebooting may or may not fix it.  If I shut it down and restart it, that usually fixes it..

Thanks

I verified the cables were connected tightly.  They were bought less than 2 years ago.  One of my monitors is connected by the DVI connector.  The one that occaisonally doesn't display is an HDMI connector.  Both are identical ACER 20" monitors.

Reformatted output below.

Hardware / Sometimes Pepeprmint 10 does not detect 2nd monitor (HDMI)
« on: April 18, 2020, 08:24:07 am »
Hello

I have been using Peppermint 10 on this computer for about 6 months.  Sometimes on boot up it does not detect my second monitor:   Here is the result of running inxi -Fxz

I normally run the Nvidia metapackage from nvidia 440 open source for my display driver.

The problem is intermitent.  Sometimes it will go several days without reoccuring.  Since I must switch between WIn 10, and peppermint 10 and peppermint 9 I reboot this computer often. I would like to be able to fix it without rebooting.  Once it is in the correct mode it seems to work fine.  When it defaults to the single screen mode and I run ARAndR it only shows the single screen and the display defaults to 1024 x 768.  This problem never happens when I boot on Win 10.  This leads me to believe it is a software vice hardware problem. 

Any ideas?  would I be better off using the X.Org X server Noveau display driver?  I am very comfortable using teh terminal, if that helps.

Thanks for any advice

This is targeted at gamers who want to install the Game Store "Steam" on their computer.  I was able to easily install the store, but when I tried to download the game I wanted "Overload", download speeds were very slow (They were less than 1/10 of my network speed.)  After reading various posts in the Steam commiunity forums, I thought maybe I had a problem with an overabundance of DNS queries flooding the local DNS server.

So I started Wireshark, and verified that the IPV6 Queries were being refused several times a second.  On a hunch I turned off IPV6 on the computer.   That resolved the problem. now Steam is downloading the game at or near line speed. 

Turning off IPV6 is pretty straightforward but requires you use the terminal;

Here is the "Script" I used:

sudo sysctl -w net.ipv6.conf.all.disable_ipv6=1

I put in a text file on my desktop, labled IPV6 Disable and then made it executeable, this is done by:


1.  Right clicking it,
2 Selecting properties, at the bolttom of the menu
3. Select the permissions tab at top
4. At the bottom select allow executing file as program
5.  Save it

When you run it, you will need to enter your password

I also created an IPV6 enable text file to turn IPV6 back on:

Use the same process, except the text in the file is:

sudo sysctl -w net.ipv6.conf.all.disable_ipv6=0


Hope this helps people trying to download Steam games.

Maybe this is a desktop problem... I can use the terminal command "nmcli con" and show all my VPN connections.  If I use the "sudo nmcli  up VPNSITE name" it will bring the VPN up.  Where VPNSITE is one of the 6 or so VPNs I have set up.    I can also bring down the VPN by doing a sudo nmcli down VPNSITE.  So it looks like I need to restore the desktop apllet or widget (Not sure of the term) any ideas how to do that?

SOLVED  -- When I left  clicked on the panel (OTHER THAN ON THE NETWORKING ICON) I get the pop menu that lets me choose which VPN to select and also allows me to enable / disable my network connection.  Not sure what I did, but it seems to work now.  Thanks

Didn't work.  Since I have a dual boot computer I ran a copy of Peppermint 9 on Virtualbox on my windows computer.  When I Click the networking Icon I get the correct menu shown below on the google drive link

I can't get to this on my normal boot of Peppermint 9.  ANy ideas?  Thanks. 

Here is what I get when I click on the Networking Icon on my virtual box Peppermint 9.  https://drive.google.com/open?id=1hVi8gI-O-yAWm7MJd41eEDuV0wL7q5Bc   when I click on the link on my proper machine I go directly to the network connections menu.

Networking / Cannot start PPTP or VPNC VPN on peppermint 9 (SOLVED)
« on: April 23, 2019, 05:05:37 pm »
About two months ago I Installed VPNC (IPSEC).   Witopia is my VPN service provider.  I have installed VPNC on Peppermint 5 and 6 and still use them with no issues.  When I first installed it on this computer (Peppermint 9) I was able to click the VPN connection and it would connect,   Now when I single click the VPN connection it does nothing.  When I double click the specific VPN connection it opens up its configuration.  I am at a loss as to what to do next.  I need to figure out how to start the VPN connection.  Before I had a menu item "VPN connections" when I selected theNetwork Icon on the start bar.  Now I don't have that menu item.  Do I need to reinstall the network (dameon)?

I bought this from Amazon with the idea of connecting it up to my peppermint laptop.  Here is the Amazon description: “Carantee USB WiFi Adapter 1200Mbps, [2019 Upgrade] Wireless Network WiFi Dongle with 5dBi Antenna for PC/Desktop/Laptop/Mac, Dual Band 2.4G/5G 802.11ac,Support WinXP/7/8/10/vista, Mac10.6-10.13” 

From the terminal  I did a

 sudo apt-get install linux-headers-generic build-essential git


Not sure I really needed to, but I did it.

Copy  the RTL88x2BBU....zipped file from the LINUX folder on the included mini CD  to a folder on your hard drive

Unzip it, it will produce a subdirectory of the same name with a bunch of files in it.

Change to that directory

From the terminal run the make cmd

Wait till it completes:  Then from the terminal run sudo make install

Then run sudo modprobe 88x2bu

I then did an ifconfig and the new adapter is there (wlan1)

Cycle the wireless on and off, and you should see the new adapter

Thanks,  to fix the original problem, was the key  reinstalling  linux-firmware?

I followed the guidance given of removing the windows HD, installing peppermint, but was suprised when I didn't see a swap drive created on /dev/sdb, but it seems to work ok.  The computer has 8 Gig of ram, is peppermint using half of that as a "swap file (zram)?  I left about 100 GB unused on the Hard drive with the idea of installing another Linux DIstro.  Would it be worthwhile to use * GB of that for a swap file?

Software & Applications / IPSEC VPN Installation details for peppermint 9
« on: January 11, 2019, 10:46:29 am »
All

I use a VPN (witopia) service that details how to setup their VPN service on Ubuntu.  I have used them with earlier versions of peppermint without issue.   For the XFCE desktop they recommend installing the network-manager-vpnc package.  I tried this without success.  As it turns out I needed to install the network-manager-vpnc-gnome package as well.  In earlier versions of peppermint I only needed to install the network-manager-vpnc package.  If you are using a VPN using IPSEC or PPTP, please note this requirement.

Installation / Re: Installing Peppermint 9 on a new SSD, (SOLVED)
« on: January 10, 2019, 12:56:53 pm »
I used a linux persistent USB drive creator called mkusb   I finally got it to work by running sudo umount -l -r -f /cdrom after I selected try out peppermint, and before I installed it..  It successfully installed, and  is updating.  I will them run gparted from the usb and shrink the partition per your recommendation.

Then I will reconnect the Windows and CDROM drives.

Good to go.. GRUB works, I can Boot Windows, as well as Linux, and I have space for another distribution if I want.  Marked SOLVED
