ive had that too, either the laptop or the connection isnt fast enough. disabling the camera is the easiest option because then the sound should at least work. use a wired connection when possible.

just assume non-techy users are using peppermint and tailor the setup towards those users, point and click and avoid terminal usage. im not saying pep/linux users are like that but there may be the odd case so keep things easy. thats the main draw towards this distro, some advanced users think certain things are pointless but to newbs it means a lot. thats why linux mint is so popular, does most of the work so the end user doesnt have to.

bought a new usb mic, audio technica at2020 usb.. just waiting on it to arrive.

once i start getting wages rolling in again (back out of work again) i might fork out on a cheap desktop to throw windows on so i can use it for music purposes. already have a tower but its a neverending pile of trouble so might scrap it.

something to try, been a while since i had to do it myself..

on android, go into your about android settings and click on build number a few times until it says your now a developer then in developer options enable usb debugging

on peppermint, try installing usbmuxd mtp-tools pmount usbmount

once its all done try reconnecting the phone and see if it shows up. if so then open nemo as root using sudo nemo

try searching synaptic for linux-image, remove the packages related to the troublesome kernel then close synaptic and reboot your machine. then run sudo apt autoclean && sudo apt autoremove. see if that helps your problem

from your screenshot it looks like its related to the 8812au driver which im assuming is wifi, try to install a newer version of it then update and see if it goes away

i tried different methods but none worked for me, find it faster to just reinstall then copy back the folders i need.

installing to a usb can take much longer to install and boot but once running it performs well. i have xubuntu core on a 8gb stick and its really bare apart from some tools like disk utilities

well its better for us because the code would eventually need to be updated and having a team like mint work on it gives us time to get other things done. plus when its ready to ship we can make use of it too. wasnt too sure how it would turn out but looks good from what ive seen on screenshots

i use openshot for basic editing because its kinda similar to movie maker, then convert the file after with handbrake
