Installation / Re: Installing AMPPS - MD5 checksums issue
« on: November 02, 2014, 02:05:27 pm »
Why not just install what you need from the default repos ?

That's what I did in the end.
Needed a couple of reboots to get Php working properly, but now it looks all good.

Ampps took note of the issue I've had with their app and that's it for now. I guess Lamp is probably a better choice here for whoever wants to install a full package. Otherwise one by one install as advised above is fine :-)

Thanks again.

Installation / Installing AMPPS - MD5 checksums issue (SOLVED)
« on: October 13, 2014, 02:26:35 pm »
Hey,

I'm trying to install AMPPS through the install file located on the company's website http://www.ampps.com/downloads and following their wiki tutorial http://www.ampps.com/wiki/Installing_AMPPS_on_Linux

There's basically 3 command lines to enter

Code: [Select]
cd /download/location
chmod 0755 Ampps-<version>-<arch>.run
./Ampps-<version>-<arch>.run

but whenever I enter the 3rd one, it says as follows :

Code: [Select]
./Ampps-2.5-x86.run
Creating directory /usr/local/ampps
Verifying archive integrity...Error in MD5 checksums: 59d2451b53936d091bedddc6b673e8d2 is different from 2d8b9634cc6b89d9aacaecfd0bab413e

Most of the answers regarding this problem tend to point a downloading issue (see http://www.wandisco.com/svnforum/threads/41310-Error-in-MD5-checksums-during-installation), the file itself being supposingly allright. I downloaded several times and through different channels but the result remains the same.
Is this app even workable for Peppermint?

Thanks for any advice!

New Users / Re: Windows keyboard shortcut for showing the start menu

Uff, hadn't found that one, thank you.

I followed your steps and added after the first 2 menus :
Code: [Select]
#Menu-3
"lxpanelctl menu"
   Super_L
restarted the laptop and it's working. I wish it'd hide too when hitting the key again, but nope.

Still thanks a bunch for having quickly redirected me to an answer that's working :-)

New Users / Windows keyboard shortcut for showing the start menu (SOLVED)
« on: October 12, 2014, 09:11:42 am »
Hello,

I'd like to be able to use the Windows start menu key on my keyboard to actually show the menu - like one has been doing on Windows for generations.

But how can one do that?
All I found was the Alt + F1 shortcut to do so (Peppermint Control Center > Keyboard shortcuts) ; ideally I'd like to change it into "just Windows key", but what would be the command to enter there?

Thanks very much for any help.

That worked just fine.
Also took the time to wipe some dust off the ventilator, which actually prevented - at last - the laptop to shut down untimely.

Thanks for your time and guidances!

Hi both of you and thanks for your fast replies already.

I'm using a bootable CD to install the OS.

Please find below a copy-paste from the terminal after computing the given lines :

Code: [Select]
peppermint@peppermint ~ $ sudo mount /dev/sda1 /mnt

peppermint@peppermint ~ $ for i in /dev /dev/pts /proc /sys /run; do sudo mount -B $i /mnt$i; done

peppermint@peppermint ~ $ sudo chroot /mnt

bash: /usr/share/bash-completion/bash_completion: No such file or directory

peppermint / # grub-install

Could not find platform independent libraries <prefix>

Could not find platform dependent libraries <exec_prefix>

Consider setting $PYTHONHOME to <prefix>[:<exec_prefix>]

ImportError: No module named site

peppermint / # update-grub

Could not find platform independent libraries <prefix>

Could not find platform dependent libraries <exec_prefix>

Consider setting $PYTHONHOME to <prefix>[:<exec_prefix>]

ImportError: No module named site

peppermint / #

I did not even  try to reboot on the hard drive since it seems not to find what it wants at the beginning...

Hello there,

I'm trying to install Peppermint on a 10-year old 32-bit laptop that used to have Windows XP on it. Before making my mind on Peppermint, I must probably add that I tried several other distributions of Linux, which I believe could be the reason to my installation failure here.

Every time I want to install the OS, the following appears on the screen :

error: file not found.
grub rescue> _


Now I understand one must use the Boot repair disc in order to repair these grub-related issues. But every time I boot from this disc and choose "Recommended repair", the following appears :

Please enable a repository containing the [linux] packages in the software sources of Peppermint Five (sda1). Then try again.

Can anyone please tell me what it means and how could I do that?

Here below the link to the Bootinfo summary I got :
http://paste.ubuntu.com/7735814/

Thanks very much for any help.
