To add the Proprietary NVIDIA GPU Drivers PPA into Peppermint and update the software sources, use the following commands in the terminal

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:graphics-drivers/ppa    push enter

sudo apt-get  update

Close terminal then go to - All - Additional Drivers and install latest nVidia drivers

after that is done now check to see if  libavcodec57 is installed - you can do that through the Synaptic Package Manager

Modify keyboard shortcuts

in terminal type


then click on keyboard , then select the one you want and click edit

Your desktop is broken  - not broken into  -  guess I should have been more clear - not seeing anything when you type your password is normal as PCNetSpec has said - just hit enter after typing it in

Your desktop has gotten broken in someway

At startup switch to the command line by Press CTRL+ALT+F1 and type your user name and password.

then type in

sudo dpkg-reconfigure -a

Hopefully this will let you back in - if not I think you will have to reinstall your desktop - but I do not think it is available to download like ubuntu-desktop is so that would mean a full reinstall - maybe someone else can "chime in" in case I am wrong about the desktop.

It says

02:00.0 Unassigned class [ff00]: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTS5229 PCI Express Card Reader

In other words your system sees it but does not know what it is - might want to have a look here

Hope this helps

download them manually, or check the "Download Package Files Only" checkbox. The DEBs will be downloaded to /var/cache/apt/archives

VERY important: both the offline and online computers must have the SAME architecture

then copy them to a thumb drive from one machine to another then install

Is your 32 bit architecture enabled

Verifying you have multi-arch support enabled. (Multi-arch support allows you to use 32-bit libraries alongside 64-bit libraries.)

Type in terminal

dpkg --print-foreign-architectures

The output is - i386 - it is enabled which is good

If you donít have multi-arch support you have to enable it.

Alternative 2nd Step: Enabling multi-arch support.


sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386

sudo apt -get update

It starts downloading the update and running it.

After that you type:

sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

It will check if there are newer libraries of the packages you already have.

If there are, it will ask you if you want to update (y/n).
