I once had an idea for a Gentoo based distro where you had to compile everything on a black screen with black text and highlighting

Well you know the way Gentoo users like everything to be as hard as possible.....

S&M Linux - "Be gentoo with me" edition

Maybe this would be an interesting project ?

Oh, and no books allowed .. Mwuhahaha ;)

[EDIT]

I also considered removing the lettering from the keys, and using a foreign keyboard layout .. but figured that was probably a bit over the top  :o

OK, WITHOUT variety running, what happens if you run:
Code: [Select]
/opt/extras.ubuntu.com/variety/bin/variety; sleep 30; /opt/extras.ubuntu.com/variety/bin/variety --quit

if variety is ALREADY running .. then you open a terminal and run:
Code: [Select]
/opt/extras.ubuntu.com/variety/bin/variety --quit
does it cause variety to exit ?

Hardware / Re: Install Printer with T23 ,Pmint 3

What's the output from:
Code: [Select]
uname -a

OK it's not an optimus, so that's not the problem.

Here "probably" the problem .. as I said previously I'd fully expect an internal HDD to get hotter than an external HDD as there's less air flow around the drive and the drive is going to be close to the CPU.

It will do this in Windows too.

If it's NOT doing it in Windows the only things that Windows might be doing differently is throttling the CPU when it's not under load (look into TLP for Pepermint) and/or controlling the CPU fan better (look into lm-sensors and fancontrol)

BE CAREFUL with fancontrol .. if set incorrectly you could causxe the CPU to seriously overheat.

If you'd prefer .. stick with your current setup for now, and when Peppermint 5 is released we'll see if we need to do anything to keep that cool on your system.

From the mount.cifs man page:
Code: [Select]
man mount.cifs

Quote
       iocharset
           Charset used to convert local path names to and from Unicode.
           Unicode is used by default for network path names if the server
           supports it. If iocharset is not specified then the nls_default
           specified during the local client kernel build will be used. If
           server does not support Unicode, this parameter is unused.

and

Quote
       sec=
           Security mode. Allowed values are:

              none attempt to connection as a null user (no name)

              krb5 Use Kerberos version 5 authentication

              krb5i Use Kerberos authentication and forcibly enable packet
               signing

              ntlm Use NTLM password hashing (default)

              ntlmi Use NTLM password hashing and force packet signing

              ntlmv2 Use NTLMv2 password hashing

              ntlmv2i Use NTLMv2 password hashing and force packet signing

              ntlmssp Use NTLMv2 password hashing encapsulated in Raw NTLMSSP
               message

              ntlmsspi Use NTLMv2 password hashing encapsulated in Raw
               NTLMSSP message, and force packet signing

           If the server requires signing during protocol negotiation, then it
           may be enabled automatically. Packet signing may also be enabled
           automatically if it's enabled in /proc/fs/cifs/SecurityFlags.

Does that help ?



Your original error was being cause by the "-" in the path to your share .. fstab handles special characters weirdly .. you need to use their octal code (prefixed with an escape character \).

so
//192.168.2.15/lps-2000
would need to be
//192.168.2.15/lps\0552000
as the ascii octal code for "-" is "055"

and
//192.168.2.15/My Documents
needs to be
//192.168.2.15/My\020Documents
as the ascii octal code for SPACE is "020"

For a list of the octal codes:
Code: [Select]
man ascii
Sorry, somehow I missed the hyphen previously  :-[
