Software & Applications / Re: Nemo - Unable to mount mobile phone??
« on: October 07, 2017, 08:21:50 am »
Well I hadn't but just have (4.4.0-93 as opposed to 4.4.0-96) & yes Mark I can connect now without issue  :)
However since I updated the kernel to 4.4.0-96 on 19th Sept 17 I have successfully mounted & accessed my mobile phone storage from Nemo via USB to transfer files to my laptop from the phone  ???
Would I be right in thinking a reinstallation of the 4.4.0-96 could probably resolve the problem?
If so could you post instructions as I wouldn't want to balls that up ::)

Bit of an update

 After searching regarding 'libmtp error: could not get object handles' I found this post:

https://askubuntu.com/questions/87667/getting-mtp-enabled-devices-to-work-with-ubuntu/308366#308366

The relevant part of my /lib/udev/rules.d/69-libmtp.rules was:

Code: [Select]
# Motorola Moto G (ID1)
ATTR{idVendor}=="22b8", ATTR{idProduct}=="2e76", SYMLINK+="libmtp-%k", MODE="660", GROUP="audio", ENV{ID_MTP_DEVICE}="1", ENV{ID_MEDIA_PLAYER}="1"
# Motorola Moto G (ID2)
ATTR{idVendor}=="22b8", ATTR{idProduct}=="2e82", SYMLINK+="libmtp-%k", MODE="660", GROUP="audio", ENV{ID_MTP_DEVICE}="1", ENV{ID_MEDIA_PLAYER}="1"
# Motorola Moto G (XT1032)
ATTR{idVendor}=="22b8", ATTR{idProduct}=="2e84", SYMLINK+="libmtp-%k", MODE="660", GROUP="audio", ENV{ID_MTP_DEVICE}="1", ENV{ID_MEDIA_PLAYER}="1"
............

The command:
Code: [Select]
lsusb

Showed:
Code: [Select]
mick@mick-Inspiron-1501 ~ $ lsusb
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 22b8:2e24 Motorola PCS

I backed up /lib/udev/rules.d/69-libmtp.rules to /lib/udev/rules.d/69-libmtp.rules.original

then amended the /lib/udev/rules.d/69-libmtp.rules to make the relevant part shown above read:
Code: [Select]
....................
# Motorola Moto G (XT1032)
ATTR{idVendor}=="22b8", ATTR{idProduct}=="2e24", SYMLINK+="libmtp-%k", MODE="660", GROUP="audio", ENV{ID_MTP_DEVICE}="1", ENV{ID_MEDIA_PLAYER}="1"
......................

However the same problem exists.  :-\

I have also noticed through several evolutions of trying to connect the:
Code: [Select]
lsusb
command yields a different idProduct value  ???

Have you tried reinstalling the mtp stuff
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install --reinstall gvfs-backends gvfs-fuse libmtp-common libmtp-runtime libmtp9 mtp-tools mtpfs

Did that & there was somewhat of an improvement however it tried to load the file system for a while then I got this message:

Evening Mark
Same issue with Guest account too. Also I've noticed if I try to mount the phone, which will then necessitate me terminating Nemo & re-opening it, not only can I  no longer tether the phone but I cannot mount any USB drive I have - however I can before I try to mount the phone - just a guess but it wouldn't be anything to do with MTP would it? but I do reiterate:
Quote
Its not the phone - I've got a backup/secondary OS Miyolinux (Devuan LXDE) and I can mount the phone no problem & access my phones file system - l can tether the phone for internet access & switch between the 2 processes without issue - just as I used to be able to do on my Pepp7 OS, on another partition, before the incident that I described in my OP occurred
  .
I don't know if this has anything to do with this issue, & I don't want to muddy the waters at all, but when I logged into my Guest account there was an Error popup box that said 'No session for PIDxxxx' which equated to lxsession

@ alynur thanks for your suggestion - I'll give it a look  ;)

Hello Scifidude
The phones a Moto G 1st generation with Android 5.1.1 & as I said in my OP:

Previously I had had no issue mounting the phone in Nemo.
Also:

This problem came about when I was tethered to the phone & I stopped the internet connection & then tried to switch to accessing my phone storage by mounting it in Nemo. I did this pretty rapidly so I don't know if the tethering was fully terminated before I tried to mount the phone & that caused the issue??
So I think that is the crux of the matter  ;)

Software & Applications / Nemo - Unable to mount mobile phone?? (SOLVED)
« on: October 05, 2017, 05:42:37 pm »
 :) :)Good Evening
Had a problem rear its ugly head  :( - I can no longer mount & access my mobile phone storage from Nemo via USB.
When I try to mount the phone Nemo freezes & I have to terminate Nemo. After this I can no longer tether the phone (for internet access) however from a fresh boot, as long as I don't try to mount the phone, I can tether to the phone without issue.
This problem came about when I was tethered to the phone & I stopped the internet connection & then tried to switch to accessing my phone storage by mounting it in Nemo. I did this pretty rapidly so I don't know if the tethering was fully terminated before I tried to mount the phone & that caused the issue??
Previously I had had no issue mounting the phone in Nemo.
Any help would be appreciated
Cheers  :)

What are you running Peppermint on? / Re: Dell Latitude 3150
« on: July 14, 2017, 08:02:51 pm »
@ PeppermintFan
First of all welcome to peppermints excellent helpful & friendly forum from me  :)

Quote
The feature that I do like that is in there is the reversal of the Whisker menu with the categories on the left and the programs fanning out on the right.  I think this is a clever thing to do and brings it more in line with the Mate menu or ClearOS.  It also gives more familiarity to the "traditional" XP menu that everyone is kinda used to in some way or another.

you know that's easy to achieve don't you? :
Click on whisker menu Properties > Behaviour  check the box: Position categories next panel button  ;)

Im still running Pepp 7 on my old Inspiron 1501 which is doing absolutly fine  ;D

Ive also just invested in a second hand Latitude E6430 (with an SSD) , which I am still evaluating, & ive put Pepp 8 on it & it flies  :D

I personally don't like the concept of systemd & its ever expanding tentacles controlling everything - I think its sinister & quite possibly a disaster waiting to happen  ??? & with what looks like Peppermints impending move away from lubuntu (LXDE) I would ask the team take a look at a Devuan base - I know its not 'mainstream' but it is Debian essentially (like ubuntu/lubuntu are) therefore should be stable & reliable & maybe more lightweight than an xubuntu base  :)
Like you, I love Peppermint - its been my 'home' for the last 18 months since I discovered it  :) & the forum members are top drawer  ;)

Yep im in total agreement about nemo - as far as I'm concerned its the dogs gonadds  :D

Software & Applications / Re: Firejail & Firefox theme lock
« on: July 11, 2017, 01:56:14 pm »
Hello Rob
I had a similar problem a while ago in Pepp 7 but the solution should be the same in Pepp 8 - have a look at this topic:

https://forum.peppermintos.com/index.php/topic,3769.0.html

Specifically here by our very own Peppermint Guru Mark aka PCNetSpec:

Explain to me how you start a firefox instance with firejail ?

Because we need to launch firefox with
Code: [Select]
env GTK_THEME=Peppermix-Light-7 firejail firefox
which will launch a firejailed version of firefox, but with the Peppermix-Light-7 theme applied

And welcome to our, dare I say, fabulous & friendly forum from me  ;D

There you go hes beaten me to it lol

Also @VinDSL (as your a 'proud owner of a E6430  ;) ) - any thoughts on:

Quote
Battery's on its way out (poor health - its says 44%) lasts about 30-45 mins from fully charged - it runs pretty warm too (hottish air from the fan vent) and there is an annoying, & somewhat concerning, occasional , but fairly regular,  'clicking' sound (like a camera shutter operating) which I can only assume is the hard drive as its the only thing with moving parts. I contacted the seller who was "unaware" of this issue  :-\

On batteries:  The standard Dell battery, that shipped with my  laptop, is in pretty good shape, but it only lasts 3-4 hours in real world conditions. So, by lunchtime, I found myself fighting 'smart' phone users for electrical wall outlets.  I went with a Dell BYD04 slice battery.  I've run it for 12 hours, several times, with juice to spare.  That would be my suggestion. 

Also, I use 'Standard'charging in my Dell E6430 BIOS settings, not 'ExpressCharge' --  in both my 'primary battery' and 'battery slice' configs. 

Supposedly, fast charging does not create more wear and tear on a battery than conventional charging.  They say that magic charging algorithms ensure safe and effective battery recharging, and the total amp hour life of the battery remains unchanged, but I don't believe in electrical fairies and dragons.  'ExpressCharge' overcooks the batteries IMHO.  Up to you ...

On the clicking noise:  What you're describing might be 'the click of death' (video picked at random):




If that's the case, I would burn the HDD and buy a Sammy SSD.  ;)

Cheers for that VinDSL - looking through other videos & post it does seem that thats probably the problem with the HDD - its annoying cos other than that & the battery the lappy seems a good buy - So looks like I might have to fork out a bit more  :-\
With you about the charging of batteries to - slow & steady in my experience (vehicle batteries etc) :)

41
 Yep I know Slim  ;) - there wasn't an option for me to modify the first post (maybe cos I'd ballsed up earlier by marking my last post in error  :-X)
I sent a PM to Mark & only just come back on the forum - but it looks like somebody has already done for me  :P
So ta Mark  :)

AFAIK all EFI partitions must be FAT32, it's part of the standard.

And there's only ever a single shared one .. again part of the standard .. it's where UEFI looks for the bootloaders for all installed OS's

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/EFI_System_Partition

Cheers for the link Mark  :) I should be a bit more thorough really  :-X

I like that wallpaper just as much now as when we used it .. it's weird because I normally go off them quite quickly.

I'm not saying I change wallpapers a lot, I don't, but I normally stop thinking "that's nice" pretty quickly.

Sorry - A bit off topic I know :-[

I like the original Pepp 7 one 'Dawn':

 reminds me of the groynes on Hayling Island where I spent some good happy times  :)

Morning Chaps

It looks like you didn't have an EFI boot partition when you tried it the UEFI way.


Yes your probably right Murraymint - I thought on installation it was only necessary for me to choose the Drive (as I did with the legacy install) but it seems I have to create/specify EFI boot partition.  ??? Don't know if I'm gonna do a re-install on UEFI/GPT now that I'm up & running on legacy - we'll see - may be for the re-spin  ;)

@VinDSL
Thanks for the graphics - see you have got a separate EFI boot partition (albeit a share one with win10 - hence the FAT32 file system?)
See you use seperate home partition too - not thought of using a DATA one as per Slims tutorial?
 I really like it & can use it with other OS's - I currently have Miyolinux - Devuan based -systemd free  :) (a route I would like Peppermint to go down - if its possible - as Mark said in his interview http://www.linuxandubuntu.com/home/an-interview-with-peppermint-ceo-mark-greaves he's thinking of leaving Lubuntu due to the arrival of lx-qt)

Also thinking about 'upgrades' @VinDSL - Backlit keyboard (12-14 eBay) & maybe wifi card - although looking at my dual-band one seems reasonably capable?  ;D

My wifi card is: Intel Centrino Ultimate-N 6300  - as I say its dual-band (although my broadband is poxy 2.4ghz) but apart from that I don't know much about wifi cards but it seems to work OK  :)
