Installation / Re: Login Screen Resolution Not Correct
« on: June 26, 2020, 04:26:18 pm »
Hi vynny001,
Glad you are getting some resolution (not to make a pun) to your issue!  While not solving my problem with the login screen resolution, I have adjusted my settings to auto login and this, of course, as you know, skips the login screen.  While this didn’t solve the issue, it did at least give me a work around if you will. As now my laptop boots up to the proper resolution without going through the login screen.  I would, however, prefer to have the login screen working with the proper resolution.

Installation / Login Screen Resolution Not Correct
« on: June 22, 2020, 01:46:13 pm »
After installing a new SSD on my old Dell Latitude 820 laptop, and doing a clean install of Peppermint 10 Respin... the screen resolution is not correct on my login screen. After I login, my screen resolution is ok.  But when I shutdown and reboot, the issue is still there of a small login screen with black space all around it.  Any ideas what I should try to correct this? Thanks...

Yes indeed...I want to add my kudos!  Thank you josephd for your work.

It’s been a while since I have been active on the forum but I trust it’s not too late to add my sincere condolences to the family and many friends of Mark aka PCNetSpec. He was always helpful in the interactions I had with him in dealing with Peppermint “how to do” items. More than his knowledge which was tremendous, his spirit imparted to this community was so generous and genuine.  It made me not only want to use Peppermint but to also be a part of this kind of community.  I pray his dear ones are finding comfort and peace during these months following his passing.  May Marks spirit continue to guide those who are now endeavoring to give leadership to this project and may God bless...

I join many who have been saddened by the loss of PCNetSpec and just want to say thank you to those who endeavor to keep his vision for Peppermint going. I am not a programmer but I do enjoy using Peppermint and have received help from this community on occasion.  As much as I appreciate the Peppermint os I likewise appreciate the spirit of this forum and the willingness to help others along who are not quite so computer proficient if you will. I do hope Peppermint and this community continues to prosper. Thanks again to those of you who are working diligently on things to keep the lights on for the Peppermint community. May God bless you all.

Yes VinDSL it happened to me as well. I had to prioritize which machines I really needed Dropbox on in order to keep my free account.

Given a lot of XP based PCs I've come across run with 512M or less of RAM, seems I may also be hitting a wall with not only the size of the ISO's but the weight of the O/S

Hello again zElwin...
The cost of ram has come way down from what it was years ago.  If you are working on fixing up PCs for your family, it may be well worth installing another stick of ram, to get those systems up and running better.  If you can't find ram locally, Internet auction sites are one of many low cost sources for ram. Just a suggestion...

All the best,

Hello zElwin and welcome.  Just wondering...Do these old PCs have a usb port?  If so, you could install the latest version of Peppermint via usb thumb-drive instead of using a CD.
Best wishes...
