New Users / Need help with Arduino install (SOLVED)
« on: July 06, 2017, 05:00:18 pm »
Need to extract Arduino file to usr/local so it can talk to the com ports (Arduino program will run from desktop but won't connect to ports)
I get a "permission denied" message
The filename is arduino-1.8.3-linux32.tar.xz

Thanks Vin,  I may try that later- what is CLI?
anyhow, I ended up installing an app called KICAD instead using the software manager and pointing it to the proper repo. - worked fine. Looks like a great program.

Ah yes I see now- Left clicking on the arrow will always demount, right clicking opens the sub-menu for the device.  But once demounted, the drive must be re-plugged to mount again.
Marking as "solved"  and thanks

ps Oh yes another fine point: when first plugged, the device is recognized but hasn't actually mounted and opened yet, hence the arrow has not appeared;   It has to be left clicked once to do that.

I believe there is another part of the package which is resident but in the wrong location.  I'll do a bit of sleuthing and return later.
thanks

OK but why does it "un-mount" when clicked on? Is that actually a bug?  Why wouldn't it just stay mounted unless physically removed?  Obviously I don't understand how the USB bus-mastering works in detail,  but if the device is still hanging on the bus....oh well.   Signs and wonders. LOL

I seem to be having a "senior moment" and can't remember what I wanted this app for LOL
I guess I'll mark it solved for now  :D

Tried using gdebi and I get this error:
Error: dependency is not satisfiable: dia-common (=0.97.2.5-5)

Also tried moving package file to var/cache/apt/archives  and I get this:
error when moving (filename)
error moving file: permission denied

Also tried using the terminal
sudo apt-get install (path and filename)
I get an error message saying it cannot locate file

what the heck is going on?

Software & Applications / Installing a DEB file (solved)
« on: April 11, 2017, 06:57:02 pm »
I would like to install an app called DIA which is a program for drawing diagrams.  The file is a DEB file.  How would I go about installing it?
sudo apt-get install (name of file)
is that the general idea?
thanks

Does peppermint block installation of PPAs somehow?   I've tried to install Audio Recorder and I get a message "cannot locate package" when I run the last line of the install script: sudo apt-get install audio recorder
I read something that indicated the gstreamer version may be problematic with 14.04 trusty - seems that would not impact the install though.
thanks

New Users / re-mounting flash drive (solved)

How do I re-mount a flash drive without removing and replugging it?  I see it at first in file manager under devices, and can open it but if I click on it again it disappears; "un-mounts" I guess is the correct term.  Thanks.

ps if this happens to be a bug in 6, don't need a fix, not a major problem

If in the future we have a "custom tweaks" section this could be added along with the anti-tearing and DRM / DVD unlocking tweaks.
