New Users / Re: ERROR updating system please look at Image
« on: June 18, 2020, 01:35:04 pm »
BTW our Peppermint is bound to bionic not to artful. It is strongly recommended to use wine repository as follows: https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu bionic main
No problems here with that, try to give it a go...

Installation / Re: Backing up MBR using Live USB
« on: April 03, 2020, 04:40:03 am »
In any case of emergency make a live usb with boot repair image: https://sourceforge.net/p/boot-repair-cd/home/Home/ It will do the trick if you cannot boot. Also you can renew your MBR with that. Good luck!

Hi MarkJimenez,

You are still on 5.3.0-42-generic. Why don't you try my suggestion? If no solution, you can still dig further...

Hi,
one of my computers is also an older Asus - K50LJ With new new kernels I had poor resolution and no Wifi at all. The only solution was to check earlier kernel versions. For me 4.18.0-21 generic x86_64 solved the problem so I had to stick to it. Hope it will help you also.

Hardware / Re: No installation possible on mSATA - Peppermint 10 32 bit
« on: February 26, 2020, 01:33:57 pm »
Don't know if it solve your problem, but IMHO it worth a try:
While running live system, before installation, remove dmraid (if persists):
Code: [Select]
sudo apt purge dmraid

Installation / Re: Login
« on: February 20, 2020, 01:03:49 pm »
Hi,
if I am right you set automatic login without password during installation. To revert this, edit this file:
Code: [Select]
sudo xed /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf
and there:

Seat:*]
autologin-guest=false
autologin-user=
autologin-user-timeout=0
allow-guest=false

Pay attention to the second line: there you will find your own user name. Make it empty but don't delete the whole line. This way you will asked for password and any guest login will disabled.

Hi Ananta,
You must at first delete the WinXP partition and then update your grub. It is simple.
  • Boot your linux as usual
  • Run gparted. If yout don't have one, you can install it from Software manager or directly from terminal window: sudo apt install gparted
  • Find your XP partition(s). Right click on it and select delete, then apply all operations. BTW Because your linux system is mounted, you cannot make any harm to your linux system.
  • Close gparted, open a terminal window then type: sudo update-grub. Your XP will be eliminated.
Good luck  :)

Networking / Re: Wifi won´t work after update - firewall problem
« on: February 07, 2020, 06:45:41 am »
OK I guess it but the last chance is to try a clean live media. If it prevail then you can
trace the problem by comparing suspicious files both your os / live os
make a clean install - reinstall and do not forget to make some kinda of saves before any upgrading - fsarchiver, timehift and so on.

Sorry m8, no more idea... Before try from live media, at least give a chance to 4.18.0-21  kernel... Just for curiosity...

Hi, do you mean that without an active firewall it is all OK? Am I right? If not, maybe this helps: one of my computers is an old ASUS K50IJ Notebook and this one cannot connect to WiFi above 4.18.0-21 kernel, so I had to stick to that version.
Another test: if you try to run a live media with a clean PepperMint Ten, does it works or not?

Sorry for misreading.

My hosts file after clean install (in VirtualBox) contains:

Spoiler (click here to view / hide)
[close]

Nothing else. IMHO it worth a try to switch off the advert blocker and delete the rest lines. They will be populated again when you switch it on again. Don't forget to make backup, say,  hosts.ORIG !

What kind of problem lead to kernel update? Maybe you don't need it. If it happened automatically, at the start you can choose an earlier kernel version. If it does the trick, you can stick to that kernel version, no need to go ahead.
