Sounds like Murray and I are on the same page- sure if you can tell me how to delete the screenlock package?  Works for me...

In the FAQ section there is a video on how to post the output from inxi into one's subject.  I can't see clearly what happens.  I see the copy and paste but then something else is done. 
Could someone please list the steps in text form?
thanks

Ok I'm still a bit unclear but I certainly don't want to jeopardize the security of the OS.  I just wish I didn't have to type in a 6 character password a half-dozen or more times per day each time I want to bring the computer out of suspend.  Maybe I should be using hibernate instead?  I like the power savings of using suspend.  Is there a way to power down and back without having to logon each time?

OK... Well, firstly I didn't realize there were two PWds,  secondly I didn't realize the correlation with web security.  So which is the one I have set now? I need to use it to logon and also to "unlock" the terminal.  Is that the root one or the user one? 
And would it not be MORE secure to have two passwords?  Is there a danger of "locking yourself out" ?  Anyway bear with me I'm a newb.

Still using Pep 6; still happy with it after >1 yr. 
Could you review password resetting procedure- can I use very short or no password?
thanks

I think this issue has nothing to do with the Peppermint operating system so I'm going to mark it as "Solved" for now.

New Users / pointer jitter/ Pep 6 (Solved)
« on: October 05, 2016, 01:06:46 pm »
My on-screen pointer has a tendency to jitter or oscillate between two adjacent pixel locations, makes it difficult to point and click at times.
Is there a setting for pointer "granularity" or resolution somewhere?  Using Pepermint 6 with all updates.

Hardware / HP Pavilion DV1000 S-VHS output works!
« on: June 02, 2016, 12:42:33 pm »
Happy to report the S-VHS output on this 11year old HP laptop works fine with Peppermint 6.
Use the xrandr command to see which output formats are supported (make sure you have the S-VHS output connected to something). Then go to preferences/monitor settings and apply one of the listed formats.  There should now be a smaller window on the desktop showing what is being sent to the S-VHS port.  Easy as pi.  8)

Networking / Re: My wifi menu has flown away (Solved)
« on: May 22, 2016, 04:57:26 pm »
Solved!  I discovered after booting I need to press the hardware wifi button once, then right click on the network "plug and socket" icon, then the wifi menu comes up.  I don't remember having to press the wifi hardware button the first time I installed Peppermint on this machine, but it works now. 
Also discovered this machine DOES boot from USB, one just has to dance with the BIOS a bit, so I learned something too.
Thanks for all the help, I go quietly into the night...
