After all this fiddling I found gnome-system-monitor which fulfills my needs. :) So, sorry for wasting your time, and thank you for your help

It came back. It seems like PCNetSpec was right about the reason  :) but eject doesn't fix it. Here are the logs:

As you can see eject excutes, but there is no notable effect and trying to eject the modem in Storage Mode produces an error.

Sometimes the error gets fixed by opening the modem firmware on Windows, letting it run for some time and subsequently plugging it into Peppermint, but it is not a reliable method, which seems to suggest that the relationship is more of a coincidence than causation

Thank you. Unfortunately this doesn't do the trick for me as there is no broadband option  :(

Seems like I'll have to go through this: https://kamaths.org/monitor-net-speed-in-xfce/
Compiling from source code on the 4th day in linux, I wonder where this leads me  8)

I thought it might be avalible, since the article and the arch page(https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/xfce4-netspeed-plugin-default-route/) are from 2012 and 2013, but apt-get returned nothing  :(

Unfortunately, I can't add it to the interface. Did I do it wrong? I thought apt-get handles dependencies on it's own

In case it doesn't work, I am looking for alternatives, ie. task managers capable of measuring the network speed, and preferably displaying it in the form of a graph covering changes within the last minute, the Linux equivalent of the Task Manager from Windows. I stumbled upon Conky looking for somethig like this, but it looks awful. Surely there are better options.
Thank you for your time in advance

After the horrible 10 attempts in row when it failed to connect it has passed into the other end of the spectrum - spotless record now.

and I'll copy the lsusb when it fails to connect.
It shows in the devices list with a CD symbol even though my laptop doesn't even have a CD tray. Thank you for the "eject" command, I'll check if it works, even though I'd rather not have to ;)

New Users / USB modem shenanigans(unsolved)
« on: July 20, 2016, 12:07:56 pm »
My USB moddem ceased to work. At first it got recognised quite quickly and the system presented me with the option to enable a broadband connection. The autodetected setup worked out of the box, which pleasantly suprised me.  8)
 I am sharing it and thus have to take it out quite often. The next day, as updates progressed, the time it took to recognise and activate the device got longer. and subsequently stopped happening. :(
 I never had problems with it on Windows, so it doesn't seem to be a hardware problem.
The way the problem proliferated is particualrly weird to me. At first, it just worked. Then, it only worked with a delay. Then it didn't work. The disc appeared in the devices menu without any issues, every time. Did mounting it have an effect, i.e. inform the system that it is just a storage device? ???

 :-\ On a side note, if anybody knows, how do you check mobile broadband status via the terminal? It doesn't pop up after using
Code: [Select]
rfkill list
But I only did that after it stopped activating, so that might have had an effect.

Edit: I was about to boot into windows to check for answers and decided I'll give it one last try. It worked, instananeously. But I have no idea wether it will work next time, so I'll leave this up, because any advice on manual modem control is appreciated

@Andy Ok, I'll keep it in mind

@PCNet My boot time has significantly improved since. It takes <20 s to get to the login screen and I am fine with that. If I encouraged you to look into to the interactions between Peppermint and encryption, I am glad I did. I guess that means I should change the title to solved.  8)

I think I'll stick with using apparmor. Going to start studying cybersecurity in autumn, that finaly pushed me to try using linux, and it seems like something I'll use

Unfortunately, othe problems popped up on the way. Should I make separate post about them, or continue asking here?  :-\

The worst problem is that my moddem ceased to work. At first it got recognised quite quickly and the system presented me with the option to enable a broadband connection. Unfortunately, I am sharing it and thus have to take it out quite often. Then, as updates progressed, the time it took to recognise and activate the device got longer. It hasn't been recognised since I removed btrfs, even though I don't think that should be in any way connected. I never had problems with it on Windows, and I noticed it in the dmesg.txt(I don't have any other HUAWEI thing, so that has to be it.
The way the problem proliferated is particualrly weird to me. At first, it just worked. Then, it only worked in the USB 3.0 port. Then it didn't work. The disc appeared in the devices menu. Should mounting it have an effect, i.e. inform the system that it is just a storage device? ???

The other problem, the laptop resusing to lock itsself seems to be diminishing. It now locks when the screen turns off after reaching the idle time limit  :)
But it sometimes it doesn't when I close the lid :(

Thank you very much for the time you spend instructing a newbie, but I am afraid I'll try to take more of it  ::)
So, I am past a forced shutdown(due to DBus.Error.org:freedesktop.systemd1 TransactionIsDestructive: Transaction is Destructive preventing a normal one). The boot time has gone down considerably(to 54s), but could still use a boost.

I purged the btrfs-tools, but the effect is not yet visible on the logs. Still, 53s are a significant improvement. At least it didn't make me wonder if it will even work ;)
I posted the inxi in the first post, but I think I should post it again due to kernel upgrades:

I did the updates via the update manager. Will doing them with 
Code: [Select]
sudo apt dist-upgrade
change anything? Using it returned 0 package changes

In other news: I am using a USB modem to connect to the network. Unfortunately, the time it takes Peppermint to detect and activate the dongle is... unpredictable. Somemtimes it is 30s, this time it took 10 minutes. Is there any way to hasten this/make it more reliable? On a plus side, the autodetected settings work like a charm once it connects

The 3rd issue I have is the touchscreen. It works out of the box, and I absolutely despise touchscreens, so I turned it off once in Windows and never looked back. On Linux I found a way to turn it off by
Code: [Select]
xinput
~ $ xinput disable ELAN Touchscreen
but it only works untill a reboot. I read that you have to add a shell script to make it disable itsself at startup. Advice would be appreciated.

My 4th issue comes from my paranoia - I'd like the laptop to lock itsself when I leave it: everytime I close the lid or go away for some time, but it doesn't seem to want to. I ticked the "lock screen when system is going for sleep" in the power manager, I chose "lock screen" when I close the lid, told it to lock itsself after 5 minutes of being idle... yet it stays unlocked.

I finished updating after I posted(had an error in the update manager, but it suggested a command I wrote into the terminal and it worked). I'll try rebooting in a minute, to see how much has changed. Meanwhile, here are the files you wanted:
dmesg: http://s000.tinyupload.com/index.php?file_id=78426775237537032793
blame: http://s000.tinyupload.com/index.php?file_id=48863636283810938747
chain: http://s000.tinyupload.com/index.php?file_id=01266815263402509903
I think I won't purge the btrfs for now. I am realy new to Linux(2nd day  ;D) and thus I did my instalation without messing with the settings. I might try being more ambitious later on with  file systems. How much of a boost would it give?
I'll update the post after a reboot and turning on Intel micronode

EDIT: Rebooting failed with a message displayed on the bottom of the options: DBus.Error.org:freedesktop.systemd1 TransactionIsDestructive: Transaction is Destructive
I'll try to follow the tips from https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=776171 and log off before rebooting

SUM UP: In short, this problem will go away soon. Do all the updates via the Update manager(bottom right shield icon) and restart your PC.
If the result is not good enough, consider dropping encryption and uninstalling btrfs(instructions in the discussion) and apparmor

I am getting attrocious boot time. Pepprmint takes 90s to boot, while windows 8.1 only took 10-15s. Is it normal? I have an i3 CPU, 3rd generation
