General Discussion / Re: Should I update the bios ?
« on: November 09, 2019, 07:29:05 pm »
My problem are same with this guy
Spoiler (click here to view / hide)
, but he proceed it anyway
and surprisingly it works  :o

so I proceed it anyway too via bootable usb
from bios ver 1.6 updated to ver 2.6
bios update successfully

Phew....... that was risky  ;D
note : every laptop are different so please proceed with your own risk

Thank you guys !!!

I have Toshiba L745 with part no : PSK12L-02U00G
This laptop sometimes suddenly shutdown and showed battery lamp indicator & power indicator blinking. (If this happen looks like hardisk is broken, need bios update, ram is broken, laptop automatically shutdown in a way to protect from data loss due electric shock)
In few years ago I fixed that by buying new HDD.

And now that happened again. I'm buying a new SSD adata su650 120gb, but it wont fixed that, my laptop still randomly shutdown (when tried to install windows 10 randomly shutdown) :'(
I tried any possibilities but nothing was fixed and I leave my laptop without electricity for one day.

Next day no idea my laptop is no more shutdown randomly anymore  ??? For now I can run windows 10.

My bios ver 1.6
Thats link for bios ver 2.6 support laptop toshiba L745 with first part no : PSK12*

I run that and see this
This BIOS is aplicable to the following models :

-satellite L410/L745 models having part numbers beginning with "PSK0YU"
-satellite L745 models having part numbers beginning with "PSK0YM"
-satellite L745 models having part numbers beginning with "PSK0YP"
-satellite L745 models having part numbers beginning with "PSK12M"
-satellite L745 models having part numbers beginning with "PSK12P"
-satellite L745 models having part numbers beginning with "PSK12U"
-satellite pro L740/L770 models having part numbers beginning with "PSK0ZU"

for purposes of this document, the term satellite L745 is used to generically refer to all of the models listed above

What should I do update it or not ? I can't find anymore bios update in google with same part number (PSK12L)  :-\

I am newbie just following installation guide in web, (sorry I can't find that web) :(

I'm sure sda4 is my personal partition storage

I don't know how to post a picture here (want to post a files screenshots), hopeful this ls command output can help :-\

Installation / Dual boot windows 7 alongside peppermint (SOLVED)
« on: October 21, 2019, 06:36:07 am »
For the first time i think it will be okay if i install peppermint os only. So, when i first time installed pep 10 I didn't choose install alongside windows i formated all partition, and start from zero.

But for some reasons i need to back to windows 7 by dual booting with pep 10.

Spoiler (click here to view / hide)

2. I decided to burn win 7 in different laptop used rufus

3. I'm already prepared a 30gb ntfs partition for win 7 in pep 10 using gparted

4. I'm normaly installed win 7 inside ntfs partition

5. After rebooting there was a message about source
windows installation is missing
(i don't remember

6. Restarted the laptop again there was message try to
reinstall windows

7. I'm formated the win 7 partition, and restart

8. Displaying error message bootmgr is missing...

9. Then installing win 7 with normal procces again inside
ntfs partition

10. The installation is faster than before. And was
succesfully install win 7. But theres no windows boot
. So i cannot enter peppermint for now

11. In win 7 i only see /c: (ntfs) partition in windows explorer.
I can't find another partition that stored my data while in
pep 10 (ext4)

My current laptop is legacy bios
How to fix dual boot win 7 alongside pep 10 guys ?  :-\

Installation / Trying to generate proprietary driver packages
« on: October 19, 2019, 07:34:55 am »
I'm noob currently used Acer Aspire One 722 , after read the installation guide there's has a way to install proprietary driver on unsupported by generating packages. (I know I can't install proprietary driver by normal installation because peppermint 10 no more longer support older devices) but i keep trying don't easily give up !  8)

Code: [Select]
bajra@AO722 ~/Downloads/proprietary driver $ sh ./
Created directory fglrx-install.fmzIYT
Verifying archive integrity... All good.
Uncompressing AMD Catalyst(TM) Proprietary Driver-15.201.1151...
 AMD Catalyst(TM) Proprietary Driver Installer/Packager

error: Detected X Server version 'XServer _64a' is not supported. Supported versions are X.Org 6.9 or later, up to XServer 1.10 (default:v2:x86_64:lib:XServer _64a:none:5.0.0-31-generic:)
Installation will not proceed.

Removing temporary directory: fglrx-install.fmzIYT

but, is this possible to fix xorg so I can proceed ?  :-\

New Users / Re: Driver for Acer Aspire One 722
« on: October 12, 2019, 11:47:44 am »
Ah I see... as I expected, old hardware recently not supported anymore. Whatever, I just use this laptop for browsing only, I don't expect too much for gaming Geometry Dash (I can play using my smartphone or my another medium spec laptop) If I want, then I must to install windows 7. But I want to explore something new, so I'm running without proprietary driver its okay.  :D

New Users / Driver for Acer Aspire One 722
« on: October 11, 2019, 11:30:43 am »
Hi! ,I'm a new linux user here. Before this I'm used Elementary os in my another laptop with medium spec and that's in very short time, it because my brother annoyed by legacy grub dual boot Elementary Os and Widows 10 (I' cant install UEFI)
"hey don't make something weird with this laptop!" he said  :-\
Well I just tried to revive my old potato laptop Acer Aspire One 722 using lightweight linux (I know peppermint from techradar) :)

This is my experience :
Spoiler (click here to view / hide)

This laptop can play Geometry Dash smoothly in windows 7, But using wine & open source driver in peppermint its become laggy (I don't know if using proprietary driver) this open source driver also cannot play youtube videos smoothly
If you guys know some recommendations/performance improvements, tell me guys please :D
(I don't know which is better open source or proprietary)

conclusion :
1. How to install graphics driver ?
2. Which is better proprietary or open source ?
