perhaps i was doing it wrong, i got error messages??
i shut down and restarted at the router with the cable directily and have internet.  but still no network manager icon.

2nd, i click on the "peppermint settings panel" and then click on the "network" tab and then click the button that says 'network manager' and it does nothing.  all of this was working before, then one day it was just gone.
Thanks,
  Sean

Hardware / network has vanished
« on: November 09, 2017, 06:27:54 pm »
Hi, I am using peppermint 8 and my networking at the bottom of the screen has vanished.   Also,  if I go into the proper menu and select 'network's it does absolutely nothing.   It had always connected anyways but now I have a new Wi-Fi router and cannot connect. Any help appreciated
Thanks

Software & Applications / stop the "peeking" (SOLVED)
« on: August 04, 2017, 07:10:26 pm »
Hi,  a quick question:  I have a 17' laptop and also run an external monitor with both running at the same time, one screen continuing from the other.  The one screen that I'm not currently using seems to get this "peeking" effect where i can see the wallpaper image through the browser or whatever I'm working on.  I absolutely HATE this and its driving me batty!  I've looked in every page and window i can find but cant see any way to turn this off.  Does anyone know of a way to turn this effect off?

Thanks,

Sean

Hardware / Re: copying file to SD card
« on: August 04, 2017, 07:06:42 pm »
Well, thanks for all the suggestions.  I did try to 'open as root' both the source folder and the SD card folder but that didn't work either.  In the end i really needed this done so i was forced to put the Windows 7 hard drive, that originally came with this laptop, back in to do the task.  it did it right away.  Maybe I'll get another sd calrd and format it with this Petppermint os and see if it likes it better then??  Otherwise I'll have to find another OS, i cant keep reinstalling windows everytime i need to write a file. 

Thanks.

i got it now. I tried your right-clicking "open as root" again in  a new file window and it worked this time.  Thanks for help.  i guess i need to do this every time for a SD card?
Thanks,
sean

or with the card inserted, post the output from:
Code: [Select]
sudo fdisk -l
and
Code: [Select]
mount

BTW, you haven't accidentally locked it with the physical switch on the side of the card ?

The simple stupid method (AKA, my level) would be to just open Nemo with elevated privileges.  To do that, just run this in the terminal:

Code: [Select]
sudo nemo

That will give you Root access.  However, it won't solve the issue of the SD card not mounting with you having write access, as it should.  For that, someone more knowledgeable will have to help you.

Hi, thanks.  tried this.  it opened nemo and i tried copying again.  but it still says "error while copying "

Hardware / copying file to SD card
« on: August 03, 2017, 01:12:29 pm »
I  have put a SD card into the slot in my laptop and am trying to copy a file onto it.  I always get "error copying".  When i click on properties of the SD card it says "owner: Root"   and "you are not the owner, so  you cannot change these permissions."

How can i write to my own SD card.  This seems ridiculous
