Those 20 seconds of wait till the desktop appears are not ok. The whole point of this exercise is productivity, while staying secure with separate VM's for different sites. Just discovered that the problem does not occur at all with the live CD. Maybe I ought to try and install peppermint on a brand new VM and see if it happens there. Any other ideas to try before doing that?

Nice command that. Here's the output:

f: /home/user/.cache/dconf/user
 drwxr-xr-x root root /
 drwxr-xr-x root root home
 drwxrwxr-x user user user
 drwxrwxr-x user user .cache
 drwx------ root root dconf
 -rw------- root root user

This is a hack really but these two commands:

chmod 777 /home/user/.cache/dconf
chmod 777 /home/user/.cache/dconf/user

remove the error and you get another load of errors:

# cat nohup.out

But 20 seconds later, the files appear on the desktop as if nemo-desktop is happy.

Same thing happens except the errors go to nohup.out.

Tried gksudo -u user nemo-desktop and it still happens. Is nemo-desktop launched from a script at boot time that we can copy from?

4
One would think that root can run anything as if he were any user, using sudo -u like this:

pkill nemo-desktop
sudo -u user nemo-desktop &

It does not work. It produces this error:

(nemo-desktop:4378): dconf-CRITICAL **: 16:50:26.008: unable to create file '/home/user/.cache/dconf/user': Permission denied. dconf will not work properly.

But it works if you're an ordinary user. What's the proper way to restart nemo-desktop if you're root? This is needed when resuming VM's where vmware allows you to run your own script as root.

5
I don't know, sorry.

Thanks. Let's not forget, the whole point of the "Share to other computers" feature is so users don't have to type anything. Will the fix be coming in future updates?

Networking / Re: Where do I report a bug in the Network Manager?

Found what the problem is. Peppermint needs to have the dnsmasq package added but configured to only act as a DHCP server, which is done by adding the lines

port=0
dhcp-option=option:dns-server,10.42.0.1

to /etc/dnsmasq.conf.

Then "Shared with other computers" works. Other computers get IP's and 10.42.0.1 as the DNS server which is provided by systemd.resolved.

Tried the current version of ubuntu but the way it is configured there is no "Shared to other computers" option shown.

EDIT: Ditto for lubuntu.

There's nothing like "Shared to other computers" in wicd as far as I can see. Comparing the version where this feature of the network manager works with the current version where it does not work, there's dnsmasq running in the version that works but not in the current version. That acts as both a DNS forwarder and a DHCP server to give IP's to clients so no wonder the client gets no IP in the current version. Tried installing dnsmasq but it fails to start because port 53 is in use.

Is there a way to disable IPv6 but still be able to access IPv6 sites by some sort of NAT from v4 to v6?

The same live CD is used for both the gateway VM and the browser VM, both have "ubuntu-64" set as the guest when you create them.

I've seen the problem occur with no USB WIFI at all, just 2 regular nic's for the gateway. But to demonstrate that you'd need vmware's "Bridged networking" option for the one nic. Which is less secure than the USB WIFI option.

How to reproduce with VM's and a USB WIFI device:
Download Peppermint-10-20190514-amd64.iso.
Create 2 vmware VM's called "gateway" and "browser", both with ubuntu-64 as the o/s and the above iso image connected.
On both VM's set the Network Adapter to Custom, VMnet4.

Boot the gateway VM and wait until it shows the Network Manager icon.
Connect a USB WIFI device to the VM.
A list of WIFI networks appears in the Network Manager. Choose yours and log on to it.
In the Network Manager, Edit Connections and change Wired Connection 1 as follows:
IPv4 Settings set to Shared to other computers,
IPv6 Settings set to Shared to other computers.
Click on "Enable Networking" to disable networking, then again to enable it.
May need to unplug and plug the USB WIFI device (mine powers off when networking is disabled).
The USB WIFI automatically logs on to the WIFI network previously chosen.
Now the output of ifconfig is this:

Now boot the browser VM and wait until it shows the Network Manager icon.
It fails to get an IP from the gateway by DHCP.
The output of ifconfig:

The above problem occurs with all previous versions of peppermint too, except one version where it works alright: Peppermint-8-20180203-i386.iso. In this version the IPv6 Settings in the gateway's VMnet4 nic are left set to their default value of "Automatic" - there is no "Shared to other computers" option for IPv6, only for IPv4.

Networking / SOLVED: Where do I report a bug in the Network Manager?
« on: June 07, 2019, 03:10:59 am »
The "Shared to other computers" feature in Network Manager connections does not work. Could show details but is this the right place for such bug reporting if it is not peppermint's fault?

When you visit ipleak.net it tells you some of the things that this site sees about you. One is your IPv6 IP (where it says "Linked-Scoped Unicast"). That's all fine except I am not supposed to be using IPv6! "IPv6 Method" is set to "Ignore" in the Network Manager. Not happy with this because that IP is almost unique to me. How can IPv6 really be disabled?

Installation / How to get rid of scrolling in the network manager
« on: September 11, 2018, 03:11:08 pm »
When you click on the network manager icon it shows a popup with up to 6 lines and you have to scroll in it to show more. This is terrible, how to do you get rid of it? Popup should only be scrollable if the display is not big enough.
