New Users / Re: installation of peppermint on a usb (solved)
« on: January 20, 2020, 02:25:37 am »
I am working on a acer travelmate win 10 Uefi in Legacy mode and target usb had the usual gpt partition (fat32 500 Mb, esp, boot; ext 4 (/).

If you're in legacy mode but using the partition set-up for UEFI mode, that's probably why it didn't work.

Shocking news and so sad. My heart goes out to his family and those who knew him better than I. Mark you will be sorely missed.

Yes, if you right-click the folder and click on Open as root you should be able to.

The 4.19 kernel is mentioned, or you can try the Linuxium tweaks for Cherrytrail devices.

Try this one, starting further down the page since you've already made your boot USB:

I suspect it's actually a Cherrytrail audio issue. If your audio is broken sometimes it will mean that videos never begin. See here, which suggests trying different kernels and a Linuxium workaround.

Are your PC speakers the USB device? If so you need to select that in Pulseaudio and then check alsamixer again to make sure the correct device's volume is not zeroed.

It's a DNS issue. Edit your connection in the network manager menu and ensure your DNS servers are specified correctly, as you've been pasting into resolv.conf

New Users / Re: "Suspend" on hitting power button issue
« on: December 27, 2019, 01:56:04 pm »
Try this:

Code: [Select]
gksudo xed /usr/share/peppermint/peppermint-control-center/xbindkeys.conf

Find the stanza near the bottom that reads:

Code: [Select]
"peppermint-logout"
    XF86PowerOff

You can try commenting it out (put a # before each line) to see if that makes the power manager setting work. Or you can change "peppermint-logout" to

Code: [Select]
"systemctl suspend"

or something similar.

This seems to be what you're looking for:

https://www.linuxbabe.com/command-line/how-to-use-linux-efibootmgr-examples

Specifically number 3. Where it says <label> you would replace that with
Code: [Select]
"Peppermint"

I could try to alter os-release, but even if it corrected the directory name in the ESP partition, the information for booting Ubuntu seems to be lost; overwritten by Peppermint.

I'm not looking for a simple editor such as efibootmgr in the Linux repositories  All that does is manage what already exists.

I think you might be mistaken and that efibootmgr can create a new entry with your desired name. So the steps seem to be:

1) Boot into Peppermint

2) Delete the Peppermint EFI entry

3) Recreate it with the name "Peppermint"

4) Boot into Ubuntu via the Peppermint Grub

5) Create an EFI entry named "Ubuntu"

In the menu, try Accessories > Menu editor

I'm sure it can do what you want.

I then rebooted into the Windows Boot Device Manager, and to my dismay Peppermint Linux was not an option. 

Can you link to some documentation or a screenshot of "Windows Boot Device Manager"?

Who's idea was it to call them all the same name when booting UEFI? 

I'm guessing it has to do with the kernels needing to be signed to pass the "secure boot" feature.

Is that genre now known as PeppStepp? Of course it is.
