Software & Applications / Peppermint settings panel won't open (SOLVED)
« on: February 12, 2019, 09:00:09 am »
Peppermint seems to be working fine, but when i click on menu > all> Peppermint Settings Panel, nothing happens.  Other things seems to open and work normally, including Peppermint Control Center. 
How do i fix that?
thank you.

I was set to automatically login to my account.
I changed that, rebooted, and YES, one of the options is "Peppermint [default]".
I selected peppermint, logged in, and am using it now.  Its a reset version (not set up how i had it before), but all my data seems to be there.  the window key doesn't seem to work, but i think i know how to fix that :)
if i can't, i'll make a different post.

thank you for all your help.

i am not able to choose.  The startup screen has the original peppermint wallpaper, but then it starts the LXDE desktop.

Installation / Re: Can’t login after update
« on: February 10, 2019, 05:20:47 pm »
thank you for continuing to help.

first something broke after i updated and i was unable to log in.
second (between my last post on feb 8 and your first post on feb 9) my friend was able to get me back up and running on the LXDE desktop, but not on peppermint.

as of now, i am fully functional on the LXDE desktop, but would like to return to the Peppermint9 original desktop setup.

i would happily accept any kind of reset that allows me to keep my data.

that worked perfectly.  thank you.

my dev/sda1 is 48%.  the other 7 or 8 lines are all 0% or 1%.

my friend helped me switch over to the xfce desktop instead of the standard peppermint desktop, and in that way i am able to use my computer relatively normally.  except that every time i push the window key i get a message that says "Failed to send D-Bus Message; no running instance of xfce4-panel was found."

i still want to resolve the previous situation, but thats where its at for the moment so i can continue to access my data.

Thank you. No error message. I was able to log in in text mode and input the text. Then it reverted to the original login screen and I was unable to log in for exact same reason as before.

Hello and thanks In advance for the help.  I just did sudo apt-get upgrade, and then update in terminal. After that, two bad things happened. First, I was unable to restart or shutdown my computer. When I clicked the windows key, then clicked the button to open the shutdown/restart options, I received an error message. So I manually shut down my laptop.
2.  Now when I turn on my laptop, peppermint starts, then asks for my password to log in to my account. But when I enter my pw, it says “failed to start session.”  Likewise, when I try to log in to a guest session, it says “failed to start session”

I ran BIOS diagnostics on my computer and found no problems. Also I have used peppermint OS on this laptop for some time with no problems.

Help??

thank you for getting back to me!  and no, the DCIM folder did NOT appear.
mount/unmount/mount/  (plus a few more for good measure), but no DCIM folder.

New Users / how to sync photos from iphone SE
« on: March 11, 2018, 12:02:17 pm »
Hi, i have some photos on my iphone that i want to sync to an app in Peppermint, preferably Shotwell.  When I plug in the phone, the following happens

1.  iphone is instantly recognizable in "Files" File Manager under Devices.
2.  on the iphone, a message pops up requesting permission to access photos and videos.  I click "allow".
2.  when i click on iphone in the file manager, instead of seeing files or folders there is a message that says "The Media Contains Digital Photos" followed by a button that says "Open Shotwell Photo Manager".
3.  I click on "Open Shotwell Photo Manager"
4.  Shotwell opens and gives an error message-- "Unable to fetch previews from the camera; Could not claim the USB device (-53)
5.  I click OK, then select "iphone" from the "camera" options in the left column of Shotwell
6.  in the picture window, shotwell says "Starting import, please wait..."
7.  nothing ever happens.

additional information-- i have windows 10 on this same laptop.  when i boot to windows 10 and connect the phone, it is instantly recognized and has no problems viewing the thumbnails of photos/videos on the iphone and asking me if i want to import.
but i hate windows.

ios 11.2.6 on my iphone.  up to date.
peppermint OS 64 bit, up to date as of 5 minutes ago.
dell lattitude e6430s

any ideas for how i can somehow use PeppermintOS to access and download my iphone photos?
thanks,
mick

thank you.  I got the HPLIP toolbox installed, but am having a problem setting up our printer.  I am able to locate and choose the printer wirelessly, but in the process of downloading the driver i get a message requiring a root/superuser name and password to continue.  it will not take my user username and password for my laptop, and i have no idea what other username and password it could be talking about.  i have added this printer to several other computers in the past (Mac and Windows), and not had this problem.  any idea what that user/pw could be, or other workarounds?
thank you.
