Advanced Topics / Re: UEFI boot ... or not
« on: February 03, 2018, 01:44:54 pm »
OK after a bit of trial and error sudo efibootmgr -o 0001,0000 seems to have fixed the problem. I suspect I wasn't actually saving the efibootmgr but using the shorter command and confirming with sudo efibootmgr -v has fixed it.

Thanks for all your help.

Fast boot is OFF/Disabled  - Yes my bios is very similar prob the same - there is no option to boot a partition in the bois  just the normal  boot list same as yours.  You should see System BIOS version as 1.4

Advanced Topics / UEFI boot ... or not [SOLVED]
« on: February 02, 2018, 03:19:37 pm »
I installed Pep 8 to my uefi Win 10 laptop as dual boot (secure boot off) all worked well and I was happily as the proverbial, for several days.
However I checked some settings in the bios but did not change anything and now peppermint wont boot  and automatically boots windows.  :-\  I can F12 into the Hardware boot menu and select Ubuntu and grub starts and continues on to boot PEP8...

I tried sudo efibootmgr -o 2001,2002,0001,0004 does not work - grub is not loaded and the machine defaults to windows. Next time I loaded PEP, efibootmgr gave the same as above not updated.

Any ideas please on how to get grub to start as default.

This prog will not rescue a non booting system - if you need to restore the snapshot you need to prepare a bootable pen drive or Live CD. After booting from it, install TimeShift by running apt-get in a terminal window or by downloading and executing the installer.

also removing timeshift  via  sudo apt-get remove timeshift does not remove the snapshots - remove manualy or via timeshift before uninstalling.

Though, having seen some of the less sunny videos posted by "Linux Help Guy," (F*** Linux, End of Linux Help Guy, just to name a couple) I wouldn't be surprised by anything he does.  If you don't know what I mean, check out his channel and go back about 5-7 months.  He's already "quit" being Linux Help Guy at least once.

I dont want to run Steve down but there are lots of REALLY bad videos that he posts - The hates Linux tantrums (3 at the last count I think) are basically because he doesn't image/backup his system, then there's the car crash attitude to making videos - see his Makulu, videos for example where the  guy who makes the distro stepped in and posted. Steve hardly edits his videos and keeps talking (usually irrelevant waffle) while the system or programs install.
You only have to look at his Pepermint videos where people from this forum had to correct him, I'm talking about the desktop short cut in particular - you would expect someone with experience of XFCE would spot this immediately but no. Then theres his reviews where he uses the distrowatch site to provide the screen shots and the dialogue verbatim ( he just reads whats on the distrowatch page or the release info). There's other stuff I could mention but I'll leave it at that.

He seems quite popular with his followers  and he gets  linux out there - he promoted Pepermint and got it quite high on distrowatch fro a week or two.   Just remember, we know hell be back in a while.

Hardware / Nvidia probs
« on: August 02, 2015, 02:06:31 pm »
Installed P6 to my TV/media machine updating with a new install  from xfce 12.04 - the only problem I have is the Nvidia driver makes ALL fonts way too small.
Reinstated xorg driver after stumbling around the small  menu. Is there a fix to the fonts and the menu icons being too small when using the nvida driver?
Connected to tv via hdmi - no monitor.
Trying to use Nvidia driver 331.113 ... updates

Did you use the new partition table option on the usbdrive you installed to. ?

Excellent - Thank you for the help. it works perfectly.  :D :D

I did change the icon back to Icon=system-shutdown-panel as the one you used is a metalic logout icon.

Advanced Topics / shutdown (SOLVED)
« on: July 27, 2015, 06:08:43 am »
Is there any way to change the task bar power button  to give an immediate shutdown  now (as you can in xfce/mate by changing the items it calls), without calling the shutdown menu and having to confirm the shutdown.

Failing that is there a way to have a desktop icon to do the shutdown - only problem I can see with this, it would require sudo permission...
