Thanks, folks.

Yeah VinDSL, love this EEEPC. Will be sad when there's no more 32bit support.

General Discussion / It's nice to be home
« on: April 06, 2020, 09:10:46 am »
Jestereric here, Peppermint user since v.1/Ice.

For a variety of (mostly work related) reasons, I haven't been able to keep current. I had PM5 on my ASUS 900 and it's been fine. LTS is a lovely thing.

But with everything on lockdown and being able to telework, I figured it was time to jump back in.

So, some things that happen when you don't work within a linux/command line environment for a while. You forget stuff.

Like, take out the live USB before you hit the restart (that jacked my system, whoops)
Also, remember how to set permissions
  :-[

Three install attempts, and PM Ten is now moving along on my EEEPC 900HD. Nice to see it all up to date, and it's never going to be fast, but it's lovely.

And so, it was nice to come back here, see some familiar names. (Absolutely gutted to see of Mark's passing. That was a brutal note to find in the forum). I don't know if I'll get to be as active as I was before, but it's nice to come back.

Yep, it works, and I also see no ill effects from disabling the DBus Daemon so far.

Thanks, Mark!

Marking topic SOLVED.

Nice, thanks, Mark, I'll play with this a bit.

Ok, so then there *isn't* a way to have a background screen at login that is *different* from my username's wallpaper?

New Users / PM6: background screen and wallpaper different? (SOLVED)
« on: June 29, 2015, 05:49:52 pm »
So, I put PM6 on my ASUS E900. I'd been running 5 previously and have used Peppermint on this machine since PM1

Configuring lightdm-gtk-greeter.conf in previous verions let me change the login background, and then changing desktop preferences once logged in let me change the wallpaper. Now I've noticed that when I change the wallpaper, my login background changes to the same image. Is this a Nemo thing?

Software & Applications / Re: .docx files opening in Archive Manager
« on: March 22, 2015, 02:32:15 pm »
I went with changing the Office Suite rather than the file manager.

I had this very same problem using WPS writer. I switched to Softmaker Office and .docx files read fine. Libreoffice worked without issue as well.

What are you running Peppermint on? / Re: Dell Optiplex
« on: March 09, 2015, 04:24:39 pm »
I agree completely, Mark. Previous Dell had 512MB RAM, forget the chipset/motherboard. P5 still made it work just fine. This new machine? JUST FLIES...

What are you running Peppermint on? / Dell Optiplex

My nearly a decade-old Dell finally died, and I replaced it with this Dell from NewEgg.

Dual Booting with Win7-64bit (this is a refurbed machine, the paperwork said I was getting 32-bit).

New Users / Re: should i use bleachbit?
« on: November 11, 2014, 03:06:06 pm »
I've had no problems using Bleachbit on my Peppermint Desktop. When you install, you then open it and can decide what you want Bleachbit to look at and clean up. After that, there's even a "preview" look so you can see what gets erased and how much space you get back. BB even warns you that somethings will be slower to check and that some (I think the system check) isn't recommended for newbies. I turn those off (the Deepscan and system, also I turn off a few other things like Chromium cookies if I want to keep those).

Most of the space will get cleared at the user level, you can run Bleachbit as root, but I don't do that very often and when I do I don't have it look at a lot of stuff.

I have not had to do this yet, but likely will have to soon. Here's something from the ubuntu folks mentioning using 64 bit rather than 32 bit:

New Users / Re: Dropbox on the flash memory card
« on: August 23, 2014, 02:46:41 pm »
Okay, that's problem 1 down, but go back and look at PCNetSpec's posts. Dropbox starts before the card usually mounts via fuse, so that's a problem. If Mark's right and mounting via fstab does solve the problem, he'll have to take you through that solution. Good luck!

This is just a guess, since I have an ASUS EEE 900 and not the 4G, but I suspect you have the same problem (especially if you still have the default 512MB of RAM).

The read/write speed of the internal reader for my ASUS was slow for anything above a 16GB SD Card. When I tried to use a 32GB card, it would take *forever* to load (close to 10 minutes, if I was doing other things) and then finally appear on the left side of my file manager.

I suspect this is one more issue for you trying to use dropbox on the SDC.  Have you tried using a smaller card (leave the dropbox question out for a second) and seeing if that appears quickly when you boot up with the card in the reader? If that works, maybe try a 16GB card (and then look into PCNetSpec's point about mounting the card with fstab).

a) Sadly, no. I cannot see the SD card on the left side of the File Manager.
I have booted en rebooted the pc.
I have put the card several times in and out the card reader, but nothing happend.

b) The card reader is a internal reader.
