That's a damn good price for a TB SSD .. I've never had any problems with Crucial SSD's either (M500's anyway).

Great news :)

I'll do this one for you, but in the future can you please remember to mark your topics (SOLVED) when you consider them so.

You can do this by editing the FIRST posti in your topic and appending (SOLVED) to the "Subject:" line .. for example in this topic, you'd edit the FIRST post and change

Subject: New User, Peppermint on Ideapad 130s - Wifi issues (SOLVED)

Thanks in advance :)

Have you tried disabling desktop effects ?

And would you know how to TEMPORARILY (for a single boot) test the  i915.alpha_support=1 kernel boot parameter ?

Installation / Re: Problems with installation on Asus E200H
« on: Today at 10:19:46 am »
I thought the Conexant CX2027X (as used in the Cherrytrail based ASUS E200H) was supposed to be working now in 18.04 :-\

Can you try something for me .. open a terminal and run:
Code: [Select]
sudo xed /etc/pulse/daemon.conf
find the line that reads:-
Code: [Select]
; realtime-scheduling = yes
and change it to
Code: [Select]
realtime-scheduling = no
SAVE the file and exit the text editor.


Does sound now work ?

I guess this fella you speak of is Just too lazy ;)

What are you running Peppermint on? / Re: HP Probook 6570b
« on: Today at 09:38:41 am »
So this is affecting local applications that don't require an internet connection ?

Try running
Code: [Select]
sudo rm /usr/share/python3/runtime.d/hplip-data.rtupdate
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get upgrade
do you still get errors ?

Just making sure people understood.

A lot of these press headlines are designed specifically as sensationalised clickbait .. I wasn't accusing YOU of that, just making sure people who (as you suggest) don't read the entire article understand they're safe if they're up to date :)

Hardware / Re: Formatting SD Card in FAT 32 format using P9
« on: Today at 09:00:22 am »
Windows should accept them every time (as long as they're formatted FAT/FAT32/NTFS).

Caveat - I've seen the USB Stick Formatter RE-format a USB stick that had no defined partition (ie. there was no say /dev/sdb1, just dev/sdb), this worked under Linux but was not recognised by Windows.
(I was kinda surprised it worked under Linux, but there you go :) .. using Gparted to create a partition, then formatting it fixed things so it was recognised by both OS's)

Summarised another way - Nothing to worry about if you're up to date :)

Okay with your Panda adapter working (so you have an internet connection), run these commands in sequence:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install git dkms build-essential linux-headers-$(uname -r)
Code: [Select]
git clone
Code: [Select]
cd rtl8821ce
Code: [Select]
chmod +x
Code: [Select]
chmod +x
Code: [Select]
sudo ./
Once that's finished, REBOOT without the Panda adapter .. does your internal wireless adapter now work ?

As we don't appear to have an "Off Topic" public forum, I'm gonna post this here .. well the board description does say "Feel free to introduce yourself and/or talk about anything and everything in this board. Remember to keep it clean." :)

So just out of interest, are there any committed DIY vapers on this forum who mix their own e-liquids ?

I couldnn't even find the installation instructions without having to send em my email .. which I wasn't willing to do, I already get enough spam.

Software & Applications / Re: How to uninstall Colibri web browser
« on: December 13, 2018, 11:49:00 am »
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get remove --purge colibri
bbut I don't want to sign up for an account just to get the install instructions .. surely if you've already signed up, you'd be able to access their install instructions and tell us what they were ?

BTW, the way you keep posting their link is making me wonder if this is search engine optimisation .. which is against this forums rules.

We're also dependent on the hardware manufacturers, I mean an OS isn't much use without hardware to run it on.

And before someone mentions Apple .. even they don't make all of either their OS or hardware.

The entire world is interdependent .. heck even a plastic peg manufacturer doesn't mine oil or make their own injection moulders.

"Independence" is a fallacy, which may come as a bit of a shock to many on the 4th of July ;)
(as a note - I got married on the 4th July, so "Independence day" is a  bit of an in-joke for this Brit, I managed to turn it into "dependence day" :P)
