New Users / Re: New Partition, How Do I set Ownership? (SOLVED)
« on: November 02, 2018, 07:32:45 pm »
Since I'm new here and can't figure out how to insert images, here's the written part.

I found to change ownership of a partition was fairly easy. First I made sure “Joe” (me the owner) was part of the “Root” group then with the File Manager open, here’s what I did next:
    1. Right click on "Data" partition to see who the owner is. I see it’s “Root”.
    2. I closed this window and right clicked on "Data" partition again and clicked “Open as Root”.
    3. I changed the Owner and Group to “Joe” and closed the window. 

Now I can make files and folders in my new Data partition. Not sure if this is the correct method but hope it helps . . .

I created a new partition for data on the same hard drive as Peppermint OS but the system will not let me create new or copy to. How do I set myself as the new owner?

Thanks . . .

Well PCNetSpec, I don't know what to  say - it hasn't happened again. Peppermint OS must be self healing ;D  ;D  ;D  ;D  ;D  ;D
Thanks . . .

Networking / wifi adapter D-LINK DWA-131 Not Working (SOLVED)
« on: October 17, 2018, 03:00:47 pm »
Anybody have an idea of how to make wifi adapter D-LINK DWA-131 work on a consistent basis? It works sometimes and sometimes it doesn't. I installed Peppermint 9 a few days ago and this is the only problem I seem to be having. It's loaded on a Dell Inspiron 1720 . . .

Looks great - by the way, Peppermint OS is one of finest running operating systems I have ever tried. I have been in Linux for about 8 years and have tried all of the big boys but they always had problems with video, wifi or etc. Peppermint runs on my two Dells with no problems at all. I'm impressed . . .

They might want to remove the "Purchase USB" button from the web site. Kind of misleading . . .  :-[

I really want to try Peppermint OS and looked on the website and there is a button to purchase a USB but then there are none available. Can't find Peppermint OS on any site that usually sells OS disc either.
No, I don't have the bandwidth to download so what's the next option for a want-to-be new user?
Thanks . . .
