I've downloaded a few (hopefully) reliable programs from their websites and while Installing them works fine I don't know how to add them to the Menu.
Do I have do install a program for that or do I have to use the command line (if so, how?)?

Thanks in advance!

Yes just fire it up and select "UNBLOCK"

Ha ha! Now I see it. Thanks for stating the obvious.  ::)

Is it possible to disable Peppermint's Advert Blocker? It's a great tool but I really need the option to whitelist certain sites.

Is there a way to mark this as solved?

Not this time because you don't own (didn't start) the topic ;) .. only the original poster can mark a topic (SOLVED) because it requires you edit the FIRST post in the topic.
(it also stops people marking other peoples topics solved when they might not be for the original poster)

This is why we ask people with support questions to always start their own topic :)

Point taken!  ::)

thank you.  I got the HPLIP toolbox installed, but am having a problem setting up our printer.  I am able to locate and choose the printer wirelessly, but in the process of downloading the driver i get a message requiring a root/superuser name and password to continue.  it will not take my user username and password for my laptop, and i have no idea what other username and password it could be talking about.  i have added this printer to several other computers in the past (Mac and Windows), and not had this problem.  any idea what that user/pw could be, or other workarounds?
thank you.

I have exactly the same problem. When it try to install the printer driver within the HPLIP Toolbox (or in the Terminal with the command 'hp-setup -i') it asks for my root password, which normally is the same as my computer password, but it doesn't accept it and the installation is cancelled.

Driver: HPLIP 3.16.3

HP printer model: HP LaserJet 1020

Any kind of help is appreciated!

So I guess everyone is on vacation or just haven't got a clue? I still haven't solved the problem and would appreciate some form of help.

Hardware / Black screen/no full boot?
« on: June 17, 2015, 05:47:24 am »

First post here and it starts with a problem.  ::) I've been using Peppermint 5 on and off for a year and now upgraded to version 6 and really like it! The problem is that after I've been using it for a while the screen turns black on boot. The computer doesn't seem to reach the full boot since one touch on the power button and it shuts down. I'm an old laptop Dell inspiron 1525 and as far as I collect I had this same problem when using Ubuntu 12.04 or/and 14.04.

I got some tips on Google+ but there is no way I can use them (for example [sudo service lightdm restart] since the screen is black and the system doesn't respond. Someone mentioned Nomodeset but I haven't got a clue what that is.

Anyone recognizing this problem? Any tips? (Right now I'm on my Lubuntu live-USB.)
