Which versions of these distros ?

My point is it may be some kind of kernel regression in the 5.0 series kernels (and updated xorg stack) that came with the HWE that didn't exist in the 4.15 kernels.
(but there's no way to test this hypothesis without distro VERSIONS)

I mean it seems to work (well kinda) with LibreElec
https://www.reddit.com/r/Addons4Kodi/comments/dyngxx/air_mouse_with_libreelec_issues/
which AFAIK used the 4.14 kernel.

It would really help if you could try Peppermint 9 (even if just as a Live session), if that works we can easily upgrade it to PM10 but keep the 4.15 kernel and non-HWE xorg stack.

Previous versions of Peppermint can be downloaded here:

Can you link to the solution/workaround .. so we can see what you did and possibly figure out where the problem was ?

Well use a separate mouse and keyboard to get the info I'm asking for.

There's no way we can even attempt to troubleshoot this if you're unable to run any commands or post any output now is there ? ;)



That said I doubt we'll be able to do much anyway (beyond possibly trying a different kernel.

Have you tried any other Linux distros that DID work ? .. if so, which ?
(If not, maybe try a Peppermint 9 Live session)

With the airmouse plugged in (but obviously without doing anything with it) can you post the output from
Code: [Select]
lsusb
or does thre simple act of lugging it in crash the system ?

5
What's the output from
Code: [Select]
dpkg -l | grep geany
and
Code: [Select]
snap list
and
Code: [Select]
flatpak list

Fantastic news al3xsh, thanks for taking the time to post your working solution .. it all helps build the knowledge base :)

[EDIT]

Hope you don't mind but I've marked the topic (SOLVED) to hopefully guide others to a workable solution.

I'm kinda confused about what you're trying to say here :-\

Can you boot to a LiveUSB, then post the output from:
Code: [Select]
inxi -Fz
run within the Live session.

I want to know if it defaults to the 'intel' or 'modesetting' graphics driver.

I'd certainly appreciate any help from someone that can author desktop application GUI front ends in say python (though it doesn't HAVE to be python, frankly that would allow me to better understand the code if it ever needed modification in the future).

First let's backup smb.conf
Code: [Select]
sudo cp -v /etc/samba/smb.conf /etc/samba/smb.conf.backup

Now let's try editing smb.conf (the following assumes you Windows workgroups is WORKGROUP):
Code: [Select]
gksudo xed /etc/samba/smb.conf
and try making it read:-
Code: [Select]
#
# Sample configuration file for the Samba suite for Debian GNU/Linux.
#
#
# This is the main Samba configuration file. You should read the
# smb.conf(5) manual page in order to understand the options listed
# here. Samba has a huge number of configurable options most of which
# are not shown in this example
#
# Some options that are often worth tuning have been included as
# commented-out examples in this file.
#  - When such options are commented with ";", the proposed setting
#    differs from the default Samba behaviour
#  - When commented with "#", the proposed setting is the default
#    behaviour of Samba but the option is considered important
#    enough to be mentioned here
#
# NOTE: Whenever you modify this file you should run the command
# "testparm" to check that you have not made any basic syntactic
# errors.

#======================= Global Settings =======================

[global]

# Allow smb version 1
name resolve order = bcast host
client max protocol = NT1

## Browsing/Identification ###

# Change this to the workgroup/NT-domain name your Samba server will part of
workgroup = WORKGROUP

# server string is the equivalent of the NT Description field
server string = %h server (Samba, Ubuntu)

# Windows Internet Name Serving Support Section:
# WINS Support - Tells the NMBD component of Samba to enable its WINS Server
#   wins support = no

# WINS Server - Tells the NMBD components of Samba to be a WINS Client
# Note: Samba can be either a WINS Server, or a WINS Client, but NOT both
;   wins server = w.x.y.z

# This will prevent nmbd to search for NetBIOS names through DNS.
dns proxy = no

#### Networking ####

# The specific set of interfaces / networks to bind to
# This can be either the interface name or an IP address/netmask;
# interface names are normally preferred
;   interfaces = 127.0.0.0/8 eth0

# Only bind to the named interfaces and/or networks; you must use the
# 'interfaces' option above to use this.
# It is recommended that you enable this feature if your Samba machine is
# not protected by a firewall or is a firewall itself.  However, this
# option cannot handle dynamic or non-broadcast interfaces correctly.
;   bind interfaces only = yes



#### Debugging/Accounting ####

# This tells Samba to use a separate log file for each machine
# that connects
log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m

# Cap the size of the individual log files (in KiB).
max log size = 1000

# If you want Samba to only log through syslog then set the following
# parameter to 'yes'.
#   syslog only = no

# We want Samba to log a minimum amount of information to syslog. Everything
# should go to /var/log/samba/log.{smbd,nmbd} instead. If you want to log
# through syslog you should set the following parameter to something higher.
syslog = 0

# Do something sensible when Samba crashes: mail the admin a backtrace
panic action = /usr/share/samba/panic-action %d


####### Authentication #######

# Server role. Defines in which mode Samba will operate. Possible
# values are "standalone server", "member server", "classic primary
# domain controller", "classic backup domain controller", "active
# directory domain controller".
#
# Most people will want "standalone sever" or "member server".
# Running as "active directory domain controller" will require first
# running "samba-tool domain provision" to wipe databases and create a
# new domain.
server role = standalone server

# If you are using encrypted passwords, Samba will need to know what
# password database type you are using. 
; passdb backend = tdbsam

obey pam restrictions = yes

# This boolean parameter controls whether Samba attempts to sync the Unix
# password with the SMB password when the encrypted SMB password in the
# passdb is changed.
unix password sync = yes

# For Unix password sync to work on a Debian GNU/Linux system, the following
# parameters must be set (thanks to Ian Kahan <<kahan@informatik.tu-muenchen.de> for
# sending the correct chat script for the passwd program in Debian Sarge).
passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u
passwd chat = *Enter\snew\s*\spassword:* %n\n *Retype\snew\s*\spassword:* %n\n *password\supdated\ssuccessfully* .

# This boolean controls whether PAM will be used for password changes
# when requested by an SMB client instead of the program listed in
# 'passwd program'. The default is 'no'.
pam password change = yes

# This option controls how unsuccessful authentication attempts are mapped
# to anonymous connections
map to guest = bad user

########## Domains ###########

#
# The following settings only takes effect if 'server role = primary
# classic domain controller', 'server role = backup domain controller'
# or 'domain logons' is set
#

# It specifies the location of the user's
# profile directory from the client point of view) The following
# required a [profiles] share to be setup on the samba server (see

# Another common choice is storing the profile in the user's home directory
# (this is Samba's default)
#   logon path = \\%N\%U\profile

# It specifies the location of a user's home directory (from the client
# point of view)
;   logon drive = H:
#   logon home = \\%N\%U

# The following setting only takes effect if 'domain logons' is set
# It specifies the script to run during logon. The script must be stored
# in the [netlogon] share
# NOTE: Must be store in 'DOS' file format convention
;   logon script = logon.cmd

# This allows Unix users to be created on the domain controller via the SAMR
# RPC pipe.  The example command creates a user account with a disabled Unix
# password; please adapt to your needs
; add user script = /usr/sbin/adduser --quiet --disabled-password --gecos "" %u

So I take it you've enabled SMB v1 in both Peppermint and Win10 ?


Instructions for enabling SMB v1 in Peppermint 9 can be found here:
https://forum.peppermintos.com/index.php/topic,7086.msg72516.html#msg72516

Instructions for making sure SMB v1 is installed in Windows 10:-
  • Search in the start menu for ‘Turn Windows features on or off’ and start it.
  • In the resulting dialog window search for ‘SMB1.0/CIFS File Sharing Support’ in the list of options offered, and tick the box next to it.
  • Click OK and Windows will download/install it .. You should then be prompted to reboot the PC, but if not reboot anyway.
(it's important that you REBOOT Windows because it does that very 'Windowy' thing where it's installed as part of the shutdown and bootup process)

what I like about Linux is the variety of developer approaches allows one to seek out and find good matches for old or oddball hardware.

Ignore those Gtk warnings when starting xed (the text editor) from the terminal, they're unimportant and have no detrimental effects.

Make the changes I suggested .. ie:-

Run
Code: [Select]
gksudo xed /etc/pulse/default.pa
when it opens, make it read:-

Quote from: VinDSL
When one is performing the new PulseAudio upgrade, make sure to allow the config change, when it asks.

This is wrong Mr Dizzle .. the trick is to KEEP your current config, NOT accept the new (default) one which doesn't contain our edit.

Ie. Select 'N' to keep your current copy of default.pa

[EDIT]

In any case this will be irrelevant in the Respin (which would have been unaffected whichever you chose) :)

[EDIT 2]

Personally if any update asks if I want to keep MY copy of a config file or accept the default, I pretty much always elect to keep my current version ;)
