No DO NOT install the entire MATE desktop environment .. just the MATE power manager.

I take it you installed mate-power-manager, uninstalled xfce4-power-manager, set mate-power-manager to autostart, then rebooted before testing ?

Do you need instructions to do this ?

Installed MATE Power Manager.  Uninstalled xfce4.  Clicked on Launch for MATE.  Nothing happened.  Re-booted, repeat on trying to launch MATE.  Nothing happened.  Can't figure out how to set MATE to Autostart.

I tried to install and launch MATE Power Manager.  It did nothing.  It seems MATE is a family of apps/programs and they are not installed on my box.  I'm a bit afraid of installing the entire package as I have no concept of what it all does.

Well, the patient is not healed but is better.

 Now I loose the internet only every few days and must reboot.  It's driving me nuts.  >:(

Any things I can try?

Yesterday I installed all of the system updates and today it seems to be working.  Perhaps one of the gurus in the ether fixed it for me.  Will watch it today.

I guess the Spirit of Linus Benedict Torvalds is watching over me.  The system seems to have healed itself.  Thank you to all the Code Warriors who monitor this stuff!

Hi Everyone!  I recently upgraded from Peppermint 5 to 9. 
Now, every time the computer goes to sleep there's no internet connection when I wake it.
I have to reboot or shut down to get it back.  Other devices work fine on WIFI so I know it's not the modem/cable.
I am up to date on system updates as of ten minutes ago.
Any suggestions?

It's working perfectly for me in Firefox.

Are you sure you haven't any plugins that are affecting it ?

Try starting firefox in safe mode and see if it then works...

With Firefox CLOSED, open a terminal and run:
Code: [Select]
firefox --safe-modeand click the button to open Firefox in safe mode .. does it work in that Firefox instance ?

BINGO! It works fine in safe mode. Perhaps a little slower, but the maps are fine.


Now to remove an app or two.

Good news - and bad news. works fine in Chrome.  Cleared Firefox cache with no benefit.  Removed and reinstalled Firefox with no benefit.

Heh. I thought I was the only one that still uses Peppermint 5  ;D

Too old and lazy to go through another upgrade!  ;D ;D

Hi!  I'm having an issue with trying to see weather maps, such as  This started about a month ago.  Up until then everything worked fine.

I ran uname -a and it tells me 4.4.0-51 generic #72 ubuntu.

Do I have a video driver issue on my old Dell Inspiron 531?  And why all of a sudden?

As I now know what version of Peppermint I'm running - ;D - I should close this thread and thank everyone for their help.

I'll open an new thread as soon as I know enough about P7 to ask intelligent questions,  :)

Not sure.  It's been years since I used Linux before I installed Peppermint 4 or 5.  I used to have to manually lay out all the partitions then.  I just went more or less with the flow this round.

Other than the 3.5 minute to open wallpaper thing, I'm finding most things seem to be working - on ver. 7.

Have you run a full system update ?

Don't know what that means.  I downloaded the iso file for PP8 and told it to install.  Worked like crap.  I then downloaded PP7 and tried that.  Not much better.  Tried to change the wallpaper and it took 3.5 minutes just to open the dialog box.

Seems like I need to do a full hard drive format then inatall.??  Don't know how to do that.  :'(
