Okay you should just be able to boot into Peppermint, then FROM WITHIN PEPPERMINT, run:
Code: [Select]
sudo grub-install /dev/sda
then
Code: [Select]
sudo update-grub
But whenever editing grub, it's a good idea to have a LiveUSB handy just in case .. then if necessary we can reinstall grub from that.

Great news :)

Nope, it's just launched with a .desktop launcher at
Code: [Select]
/etc/xdg/autostart/nemo-autostart.desktop
which contains the line
Code: [Select]
Exec=nemo-desktop
your problem is this gets executed as the user, and apparently that user doesn't have permission to write to its own /home/user/.cache/dconf/user

What's the output from:
Code: [Select]
sudo namei -om /home/user/.cache/dconf/user
maybe your script will have to change ownership of that path prior to running su user -c "nohup nemo-desktop" or similar.

IN PEPPERMINT, what's the output from:
Code: [Select]
sudo fdisk -l
and
Code: [Select]
blkid
and
Code: [Select]
mount
and
Code: [Select]
[ -d /sys/firmware/efi ] && echo "UEFI" || echo "Legacy BIOS"

Maybe try
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install --install-recommends linux-generic-hwe-18.04-edge
but keep a record of what it says it's going to install before applying .. in case you wanna undo

mem=1G limits the kernel to addressing the first 1G of memory .. so yeah, in the absence of a specified limit the kernel will address all the memory it can find.

No, you're missing my point here perknh

if you've only entered
Code: [Select]
quiet splash mem=1G --

that line should never have been edited .. so should already read
Code: [Select]
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX=""
without you having to edit it at all.



The only reason for quotation marks in that line are if you're adding more than one parameter with whitespaces between
Code: [Select]
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX=""
and
Code: [Select]
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX=
and even
Code: [Select]
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="
all effectively read
Code: [Select]
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX=
no parameter set

That said, as I said above .. if you only added mem=1G once, before the --, I'd have expected that file never to have been edited at all, so read the default
Code: [Select]
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX=""

if you're already root, you shouldn't need sudo .. try
Code: [Select]
su user -c "nohup nemo-desktop"
obviously replace "user" with the users name.

I take it the 2 apostohes together commands the memory to be open ended -- instead of putting a number on it, :-\

Not sure what you mean here perknh .. which two apostrophes ?

You're most welcome :)

I've done this one for you, but in future when you consider a topic (SOLVED) can you please remember to mark it so. To do this edit the FIRST posting in your topic and append (SOLVED) to the end of the "Subject:" line.

Thanks in advance :)

Ignore that lintian output .. I saw it too, but the driver WAS installed.

Run:
Code: [Select]
gksudo xed /etc/cups/cupsd.conf
find the section that currently reads
Code: [Select]
  # All administration operations require an administrator to authenticate...
  <Limit CUPS-Add-Modify-Printer CUPS-Delete-Printer CUPS-Add-Modify-Class CUPS-Delete-Class CUPS-Set-Default CUPS-Get-Devices>
    AuthType Default
    Require user @SYSTEM
    Order deny,allow
  </Limit>
and change it to read
Code: [Select]
  # All administration operations require an administrator to authenticate...
  <Limit CUPS-Add-Modify-Printer CUPS-Delete-Printer CUPS-Add-Modify-Class CUPS-Delete-Class CUPS-Set-Default CUPS-Get-Devices>
    AuthType None
  # AuthType Default
  # Require user @SYSTEM
    Order deny,allow
  </Limit>
SAVE the file and exit the text editor.

Now in your web browser go to
http://localhost:631
click the "Administration" tab

Then click "Add Printer"

Did it let you this time ?

And if so, is the printer listed there ?
