hofy@hofy-EasyNote ~ $ rfkill list

edit: It works (a mapped keyboard shortcut) if I change rfkill permission 'everybody' from 'read only' to 'read and write'. How do I do this properly so the change is persistent?

I changed the 'all users' permission and added 'write' by:
Code: [Select]
sudo chmod a+w /dev/rfkillthus rendering the workaround with a custom keyboard shortcut (mentioned earlier in this thread) viable again. how to make it persistent?

I'm guessing Atheros is the USB dongle I'm using for better reception.

Software & Applications / Re: menulibre screwed up the menu

Oh yes, I forgot to mention that one. Tried that already, and it didn't affect the menus in the slightest.

Screw it, I think I'm just gonna upgrade to Pep 10 on my main machine anyway.

Thanks :)

Couldn't resist to install Pep 10 and the problem sadly persists. What is worse, mapping the keyboard shortcuts with rfkill no longer works as a workaround either. I fiddled with rfkill permissions and it worked - but only until reboot.

So is there a simpler solution, or how do I change the permissions properly and persistently?

thanks :)

Software & Applications / menulibre screwed up the menu
« on: June 24, 2019, 03:45:13 am »
Hello there,
I wanted to adjust the menu a bit and so installed menulibre from synaptic. Sadly it screwed up my menus quite thoroughly.

I purged menulibre, tried to delete the .desktop files from .local/share/applications, then copied the content from /usr/share/appilications to the .local/... ; all to no avail. I'd just like to get it back to what it was.

An easy fix maybe?

Peppermint 8. Thanks :)

Software & Applications / Re: Nemo sidebar bookmark icons appearance
« on: June 10, 2019, 05:23:31 am »
Hey alynur,
thanks for the input. Did not work.

It's got to do with the partitioning. A folder on linux partition displays correctly, the others don't.
Let's close this. I can live with it. Thank you all.

I mounted the partition as you recommended. It didn't affect the sidebar icon appearance tho.
Not a big deal. Thanks for your attention.

I set up automount using the 'disks' utility.

the output from:
Code: [Select]
sudo fdisk -l/dev/sda5   988499968 1809508351 821008384 391,5G Microsoft basic data

Code: [Select]
sudo blkid/dev/sda5: UUID="9870EC5D70EC441A" TYPE="ntfs" PARTLABEL="Basic data partition" PARTUUID="135a96ca-d086-4561-9dd2-1fc3568678f4"

and the contents of
Code: [Select]
xed /etc/fstabUUID=082eee45-25b2-49da-b176-03f6814ad5a0 /               ext4    errors=remount-ro 0       1

It's an internal hdd partition, mounted at system boot.

Code: [Select]
/dev/sda5 on /media/hofy/9870EC5D70EC441A type fuseblk (rw,nosuid,nodev,relatime,user_id=0,group_id=0,allow_other,blksize=4096)
no change after clicking the icons.

I observed they change to proper images when I open a parent folder that contains the bookmarked folders. Nemo simply doesn't check for changes in appearance until it has to display them. Just a bit unfortunate it doesn't remember.

It's not a big deal. Just wondered if there might be an easy fix.

Software & Applications / Re: Nemo sidebar bookmark icons appearance
« on: April 29, 2019, 05:44:28 am »
Right-clicked the folder, clicked Properties and drag-and-dropped icons from
Code: [Select]
/usr/share/icons/Peppermix-7-Red/scalable/placesonto where the default folder icon was.

Oh and, Peppermint 8 here :)

Hello there,
I have customized the appearance of the icons [of folders] that I have then added as bookmarks to Nemo sidebar. The icons that are on Peppermint partition are all dandy, but those on another partition (that mounts automatically) have the 'default' appearance until I click on them. Then they stay the way I want until logout.

Is there a way to tell Nemo to display the altered icons on the automounting partition correctly without me clicking on them first?

Thanks :)

I should add the solution I employed eventually:

e) map new keyboard shortcuts with commands
Code: [Select]
rfkill block #interfacenumber
Code: [Select]
rfkill unblock #interfacenumber

Hardware / Raspberry Pi 3 B+ light OS with web browser
« on: May 25, 2018, 06:12:53 am »
Sorry for the OT since this has got nothing to do with Peppermint, I hope I'll be forgiven.

so I just read that Peppermint won't run on RPi. That Raspbian is HUGE tho (5GB!). Could some experienced user recommend a lightweight OS that doesn't need a 8GB card to boot off of? Just need to open a website in it. And preferably connect to wi-fi for that purpose also.


Software & Applications / bloated filesystem - not enough free space
« on: March 07, 2018, 10:45:57 am »
I am on Peppermint 6 here. Installed on a 99GB partition, the system reports it has insufficient disk space. I ran
Code: [Select]
sudo apt autoremoveand it freed up a couple MBs, but I am not very happy with having only 600MB available on a 99GB partition. Home partition is under 3GB.

grep linux-image:
Spoiler (click here to view / hide)

I discovered two huge log files in /var/log:
kern.log (30GB)
kern.log.1 (50GB)

safe to delete? wtf is this?

thanks :)

4.10 worked. 4.13 doesn't.
