Software & Applications / Re: Creating a portable OS on a USB pendrive
« on: September 15, 2020, 12:08:09 pm »
Hi Fitzroy, be sure to use a usb stick of at least 32gb, the bigger the better. You will need to know if you're going to make it a Legacy or EUFI  bootable system because you'll have to prep the usb stick for a EUFI installation. If you can, definitely disconnect the hard drive, that way when grub is created it won't list the computer's hard drive. There have been a few conversations about how to do this here before, look under Installation in the forum. Good luck.

Hey Rusty, welcome to Peppermint. There are two things I would highly recommend you learn how to do for the next time you run into a similar problem. First, learn how to use Timeshift and take a snapshot of your system when it is running good and especially before adding new software.  Second, learn how to use a DATA partition so in case you do have to reinstall from fresh you won't lose your personal files. Good luck.

Hi pepperOS, as the instructions say "Installing LosslessCut on Linux
LosslessCut has no tedious installation procedure. Just download the Zip file using the button below. Extract it. And launch the application by double-clicking on the “LosslessCut” executable file in the extracted folder. You may have to change the permission of the file to make it executable. These steps work on all the Linux distributions."
Once in a while you will find software that work this way.

New Users / Re: [Solved] How do I backup ICE?
« on: August 27, 2020, 01:21:35 pm »
Hi Grateful4Linux, a 128gb SSD would be excellent as a multiboot systems launcher with home folders symlinked to a larger HDD. I do that myself and I take snapshots of my o/s whenever I remember or after installing new software, using Timeshift. The snapshots are normally 4-8 gb in size, depending on the o/s. My Timeshift snapshots get stored on a 500gb external hard drive which I connect when I plan on taking a snapshot or saving new home files into the storage partition. Just thought I'ld throw that out there.  ;D

Software & Applications / Re: Ice files won't launch
« on: August 27, 2020, 12:54:11 pm »
is it possible you created them and marked it for Chrome or Chromium without either installed?
Hi josephd, I actually did do that, created the SSB's before installing Chrome but when they wouldn't launch I realized my mistake and in this order, installed Chrome, deleted the SSB's and recreated the SSB's to no avail.  Slimjet is my default browser but to be sure, I created the SSB's from within Chrome and they still don't launch. SSB's marked for Firefox do launch but I am looking to remove Firefox from my systems. This problem is only happenimg in my laptop after a new install of P 10. I don't have any problems with ICE in my desktop with P 10 or P 9.

Hi alynur,

Were these SSB's you freshly created or ones that you backed up and added back in after your install?

Hi stevesveryown, as I have mentioned, these are freshly created SSB's. I have never had any luck with backing things up with the intention of readding after a fresh install. I figured it was because I still don't know what I'm doing.  ::)

After doing a fresh install of P 10 on my laptop, which fixed my mic and camera problems, the Ice SSB's I've created won't launch. How can I fix this?

Hardware / Re: Webcam troubles - Device not found
« on: August 19, 2020, 07:43:32 pm »
I did some more investigating with my laptop. I have two Peppermint usb sticks, one with P 9 and one with P8 installed. With the laptop booted up into either one, my camera and mic are both recognized in Slimjet when making a video call in fb. So I took the big step of doing a fresh install of P 10 into the laptop and I now have use of the mic and camera.

Here's what my system looks like:

Try mounting them on different hardware, anything can be happening like a motherboard going out or a usb port going bad. I had a front panel usb port quit on me and it drove me nuts.

I have P 9 installed in my laptop along with Ubuntu 18.04, I booted into Ubuntu and while using Chromium browser I could make video calls in fb. Ubuntu has the 4,15 kernel installed. I booted up my P 10 installation usb stick and tried making a video call while in firefox and I was able to. P 10 has the 4.18 kernel so I installed that in P 9 and booted into it but still was unable to make video calls in any browser. Firefox wouldn't enable javascript which there was a note that it was needed for fb to work. So the only thing I can deduce is that P 9 won't recognize my camera and mic for fb.

Hi justalexander3, I also have a 2012 laptop, mine is a Samsung, and I have lost the ability to use my camera and mic for fb video chats. I think it might have something to do with the newer kernels because it did work before, I just don't remember when because I hardly used the laptop for video chats. I may have had P 7 installed back then and I think I had to have all the settings in Skype set correctly. I was thinking about installing P 7 back into it. but it's working so good with P 9 I hate to mess with it and, like I said, I don't use the laptop for video chats.

Keep in mind, KEP3, that when you are asked for a password in the previous command, you will not "see" what you are typing, just type in your password and hit enter.
