New Users / Re: Remove windows XP from dual boot setup
« on: Today at 03:49:04 am »
Hi Ananta,

Remember that you cannot modify your PeppermintOS partition when it is mounted!! To modify it, you should again use a live session USB (e.g. the installation USB) and make sure that the PeppermintOS partition of the installation is not mounted. Then you can use gparted to accomplish the merging.  8)

Having said this, I would strongly suggest that you first read this tutorial about creating a DATA partition. I, and many others here, use an extra DATA partition and it is worth the effort to set it up!  ;)

New Users / Re: Login required when booting live disk

Hi dps,

Sorry that you are having an issue logging in to the live session. Try this:

For the user enter this: peppermint

Password: <leave this blank and just press the ENTER key>

I hope this works for you. If it does, could you please go back to your first posting and add SOLVED to the Subject: line?

This will help others with a similar issue find your solution. It also saves helpers from wasting time by reading through an entire (apparently unsolved) thread that turns out to actually have been solved.  ;)

Thanks in advance,

Hi peppycrab,

Which window are you talking about?  :-\ Do you mean the one when using synaptic package manager? Or another software manager for updating your apps?

Hi BigAnalogONE,

I would suggest trying an HDMI cable to connect to the TV. Or does your laptop not have an HDMI port?

Hi kloin99,

I'm sorry to say that unless you are an expert at data recovery, or take your drive to such an expert, your personal data files are most probably gone.  :-[

I doubt that anyone can simply walk you through such data recovery. If you wish to take your drive to a data recovery expert, you should not use the drive at all until then because the more you use it, writing new files, erasing others, etc. the less chance there will be for anything to be recovered.

Networking / Re: Help sharing wifi through ethernet(Solved)

Hi TheAkantor,

Glad to hear that you managed to solve your issue! That is a solution that I have never heard about. But then I must admit that I don't really know much about networking.  :P

And thanks for marking the topic (Solved);) 8)

Hi kloin99,

Are you saying that you installed Peppermint 10 onto the external drive that contained your backed-up personal files?  :-\

General Discussion / Re: Help needed with a Dad with Altzeimers.
« on: February 14, 2020, 08:45:24 am »
Hi Kwales66,

I'm sorry to hear about your father.  :'( I'm also sorry to say that my experience with AD (Alzheimer's Disease) is that changes are very often confusing for the patient. This is not to say that you will not have success, but the change from using one desktop and OS to a quite different desktop and OS does not look promising.  ;)

 I would perhaps suggest trying a linux distro that uses a very similar desktop as that on Win 10. Then the only really big change for your father would be the improved (i.e. simplified) updating which will not be popping up in his face, taking control of the computer and often taking very long to complete.

Hi windrose,

Good luck with that !!  ::) I doubt that they have anyone who understands anything about Linux or they would not have brushed off your brother so quickly and, for them, so conveniently.  ;)

Software & Applications / Re: Guest Session HELP.
« on: February 14, 2020, 08:22:49 am »
Hi GEMS,

I have been going through unsolved forum postings in hopes of being able to help solve someone's problem. I came across this posting of yours that seems to have been solved. If this is the case, could you please go back to that posting and in the first post that you made in that thread add SOLVED to the Subject: line?

This will help others with a similar issue find your solution. It also saves helpers from wasting time by reading through an entire (apparently unsolved) thread that turns out to actually have been solved.  ;)

Thanks in advance,

Software & Applications / Re: flashplugin audio stutter in Twitch
« on: February 14, 2020, 08:18:35 am »
Hi gimbleguy,

This is more of an issue for the developers of the flashplugin rather than the PeppermintOS developers (who have nothing to do with the development of the flashplugin and could not change it for you). It also seems to possibly be an issue resulting from your running PeppermintOS in a Win 10 VM, since no one else has reported such an issue until this point.

Regards,

And you do mean "left" monitor and not right? Just checking! :) I will wait for your pictures. I want to make sure I can do this on the usb before I reinstall again. Thanks

Darrel
Hi darrel_jw,

Perhaps you should read "right" as "correct" ...

And as for VidDSL's irony: if you look closely at what he has previously posted, his computer seems to have the same video card as yours. Then, of course, you need to consider his solution (posted in another of his previous posts) and perhaps test it to see if it solves your issue.  ;)

Hi hawghaven,

Another way to install the xscreensaver is to use the terminal commands as follows:

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install xscreensaver

Hi TheAkantor,

Thanks for for the tutorial and for planning the change concerning the use of the root terminal. I was actually considering using my Global Mod status to make this change just to make it less risky.  ;) But I prefer to let the original author (in this case: you) make such changes.  8)

Hi bobde,

We have several folks around here who would be very good candidates -- I'm sure one or the other will be contacting you either here in this thread or with a PM (personal message) in the next day or so. If not, bump this post again in a couple of days!  8)
