Does the solitaire SSB have a wooden background when started .. ie. is it the new one (with the wooden background) ?

If you're not sure what I'm asking, please post the output from:
Code: [Select]
cat ~/.local/share/applications/solitaire.desktop

Fixed command in last response .. please try again.

Yeah I'm a bit surprised by that too :-\

What exactly was the output from
Code: [Select]
lspci -nnk | grep -iA3 net
?

Anyway, when shutting down (at the "shutting down" screen), if you hit the Esc key, are there any messages onscreen that might give us a clue what's hanging ?

Run:
Code: [Select]
sudo mv -v /etc/skel/.local/share/applications/solitaire.desktop.dpkg-dist /etc/skel/.local/share/applications/solitaire.desktop
then
Code: [Select]
cp -v /etc/skel/.local/share/applications/solitaire.desktop ~/.local/share/applications/solitaire.desktop
and can you now confirm that

Menu > Games > Solitaire

takes you to a solitaire game with a wooden background ?



Can you also confirm whether you get ANY output from:
Code: [Select]
sudo dpkg --configure -a

what's the output from:
Code: [Select]
ls /etc/skel/.local/share/applications

Some are willing to permanently suffer, just to save a small learning curve .. oh well, their loss :)

People are just weird ???

Networking / Re: Sudo netplan apply - after each boot?
« on: December 30, 2019, 07:17:28 pm »
Why are you having to edit /etc/netplan/01-network-manager-all.yaml at all .. that file should be just handing control to network-manager.

Is network-manager not working ?

Here are the instructions to manually upgrade Peppermint 10 to Peppermint 10 Respin .. you use these at your own risk, but they should be safe enough (I've tested them in a VM).

First of all MAKE SURE PEPPERMINT 10 IS FULLY UPDATED before you begin below

Now in Peppermint 10, open a terminal and run:
Code: [Select]
gksudo xed /etc/apt/sources.list.d/peppermint.list
and make it read:-
Code: [Select]
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/peppermintos/p10-release/ubuntu bionic main
# deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/peppermintos/p10-release/ubuntu bionic main
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/peppermintos/p10-respin/ubuntu bionic main
# deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/peppermintos/p10-respin/ubuntu bionic main
SAVE the file and exit the text editor.

Back in the terminal run:
Code: [Select]
gksudo xed /etc/apt/sources.list.d/peppermint.list.save
and make it read:-
Code: [Select]
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/peppermintos/p10-release/ubuntu bionic main
# deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/peppermintos/p10-release/ubuntu bionic main
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/peppermintos/p10-respin/ubuntu bionic main
# deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/peppermintos/p10-respin/ubuntu bionic main
SAVE the file and exit the text editor.

Back in the terminal run:
Code: [Select]
sudo rm -v /etc/skel/.local/share/applications/spidersolitaire.desktop
then:
Code: [Select]
sudo rm -v /etc/skel/.local/share/applications/solitaire.desktop
then:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get update
then:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
then:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get remove --purge pulseaudio-equalizer
then:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get autoremove
then:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install --reinstall arc-color-gtk-themes p7zip-full peppermint-browser-manager peppermint-cursor-resizer peppermint-keyring pulseaudio-equalizer

Now go to:-
Menu > Settings > Customise Look and Feel
and on the "Widget" tab, select the "Arc-Red-Dark" theme, and "Apply" it.

Back in the terminal run:
Code: [Select]
gksudo xed /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/11-evdev-trackpoint.conf
and make it read:-
Code: [Select]
# trackpoint users want wheel emulation

Section "InputClass"
Identifier "trackpoint catchall"
MatchIsPointer "true"
MatchProduct "TrackPoint|DualPoint Stick"
MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
Option "Emulate3Buttons" "true"
Option "EmulateWheel" "true"
Option "EmulateWheelButton" "2"
Option "XAxisMapping" "6 7"
Option "YAxisMapping" "4 5"
EndSection
SAVE the file and exit the text editor.

REBOOT.

Once rebooted, run:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install --reinstall pepirus-icon-theme peppermint-firefox-themer peppermint-thunderbird-themer ice advert-block peppermint-default-settings peppermint-default-session peppermint-settings-panel peppermint-system pulseaudio-equalizer
then:
Code: [Select]
xfce4-panel -r

Now go to:-
Menu > Settings > Peppermint Control Center
and on the "Window Manager" tab, set:-
Theme: Arc-Red-Xfwm4
then close the control center.

Back in the terminal run:
Code: [Select]
sudo mv -v /etc/skel/.local/share/applications/solitaire.desktop.dpkg-dist /etc/skel/.local/share/applications/solitaire.desktop
then:
Code: [Select]
sudo mv -v /etc/skel/.local/share/applications/solitaire.desktop.dpkg-new /etc/skel/.local/share/applications/solitaire.desktop
then:
Code: [Select]
sudo mv -v /etc/xdg/menus/peppermint-hierarchical.menu.dpkg-dist /etc/xdg/menus/peppermint-hierarchical.menu
then:
Code: [Select]
sudo mv -v /etc/xdg/menus/peppermint-hierarchical.menu.dpkg-new /etc/xdg/menus/peppermint-hierarchical.menu
(if any or all of those last four commands fail, don't worry about it .. it just means the files didn't need renaming)

Open:-
Menu > Internet > Ice
select the "Remove" tab .. and delete/remove the "Solitaire" and "Spider Solitaire" SSB's
then close ICE

Back in a terminal add the two new SSB's by running:
Code: [Select]
cp -v /etc/skel/.local/share/applications/pinball.desktop ~/.local/share/applications/pinball.desktop
then:
Code: [Select]
cp -v /etc/skel/.local/share/applications/solitaire.desktop ~/.local/share/applications/solitaire.desktop
and just in case anything got stuck, run these 4 commands in sequence:
Code: [Select]
sudo dpkg --configure -a
then:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get update
then:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get upgrade
then finally:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Okay at this point you're pretty much done, except you may want to resize the whiskermenu slightly as the theme change may have left it a bit too tall for its default contents.
