So essentially If we install Peppermint 5, we should be good to go until the next LTS is released two years later....

Unless Ubuntu release an update that somehow conflicts with the Peppermint configuration then "sure".
(that's highly unlikely BTW .. as mac says, Peppermint 3 is still going just fine)

Hey, leave my eyes outa this, use your own eyes for your argument ;),  .. I'm happy with it the way it is, but have no problem either way really.

There's a "Posts" link at the top of every page on the toolbar .. hover your mouse over that.

And if you want to see all a particular users posts .. view their profile summary by clicking on their name .. then select the  "Show Posts" item in the left hand panel.

"I like the old one better" .. sounds akin to "Linux is harder than Windows" to me ;)

This forum has everything the old one did, and then some .. just a case of getting used to a new way of doing things .. give it a chance and I'm sure you'll come to like it :)

The KeyCAPTCHA (jigsaw puzzles) should only be for the first 5 postings.

It is an anti-bot/spam measure to stop automated sign ups to the forum .. and it's (so far) an extremely effective one .. automated account creation bots have become sophisticated enough to read text captcha's unless they're set so difficult that humans have problems with them, but they still have MAJOR problems solving simple graphical logic puzzles.

If you find you're still getting the KeyCAPTCHA puzzles after 5 posting/PM's please let me know.

As Peppermint release annually, Peppermint odd number releases are always based on an Ubuntu LTS

Peppermint 5 will be based upon the Ubuntu 14.04 LTS release, and considering it gets 99% of its software packages directly from the Ubuntu repositories, 99% of it will receive updates for the full 5 year life cycle of the 14.04 release.

However, the 1% that's in the Peppermint specific repository will only receive updates until Peppermint 6 is released.

That said there is usually little in the Peppermint specific repository besides some artwork, Peppermint specific configuration files, and any bugfixes for the Peppermint configs .. by the time Peppermint is a year old any bugs in the Peppermint specific stuff have usually all been ironed out.

So in short - Though technically Peppermint odd number releases can't be called full LTS's, in reality they can usually be treated as such.

Cool, glad you got to the bottom of the problem .. and thanks for marking the topic solved :)

Theoretically the rtl8180 driver should work for that adapter.

What is the output from:
Code: [Select]
uname -a
and is there any output from:
Code: [Select]
modinfo rtl8180 | grep 8185
Code: [Select]
lsmod | grep rtl

Heh .. that would have freaked me (and probably Mark Shuttleworth) out .. if the Ubuntu dependency map had automatically rendered into a Peppermint logo  ;D

Obviously I added the transparent Peppermint logo, that wasn't just magically generated by the dependency map plotting :)

Here's an image generated with autoplot from a script, plotting the dependencies between packages in the Ubuntu repositories
