I tried transmission  same thing. I know my ISP isn't blocking or else it would be blocking other things as well.

Not necessarily i had a similar issue recently  not with a torrent but with one website, you could try changing your DNS settings it's a long shot but it might work

Hi John

Welcome aboard the good ship Peppermint

If you have any questions or problems keep them to yourself we don't want to know :)

Only joking John :)

Hi Jeff

Welcome to the forum

Can you open your terminal Ctrl+Alt+t and post the output of the following command

Code: [Select]
sudo fdisk -l

Also, how do I add shortcuts to my toolbar, for Skype etc?

Right click on the item you want to put on the panel click Add to Panel


This reminds me of these kids puzzles where there'd be 2 pictures side by side that on the surface look identical but have subtle difference and the object of the exercise was to spot the differences, I used to be good at that but I'm stumped with this one :)


I didnt think that this would be a to difficult thing to answer, but obviously i was wrong.

It's not so much that it's difficult to answer it's just that it's so subjective and a matter of opinion

I wouldn't argue with your mentor and he may well be right about Bleachbit but the problem is not everyone is as proficient in the terminal as he clearly is and relies on applications like Bleachbit to carry out task they wouldn't otherwise be able to do.

So I don't have an answer to your question (to be honest I don't even have an opinion) and even if I thought I did someone would likely come along and tell me I'm wrong such is the nature of the subject.



Sorry you've had no replies to your question

I don't think I'm really qualified to answer your question besides cleaning a Linux system is a bit of a contentious issue regarding the best way to go about it 100 experts will likely give you 100 different answers, what I can say from my own experience is that Linux runs relatively trouble free and requires a lot less maintenance than Windows

Anyway here's a tutorial from Joe Collins over on the Freedom Penguin website that I've found useful and tend to follow

Good luck


Installation / Re: Incomplete bootup
« on: November 03, 2019, 05:16:44 pm »
Well that's made a difference it's shaved roughly 20 secs off the boot time so it's acceptable, one odd thing I was gonna test that apt-daily service workaround we were discussing recently thinking this would be an ideal machine to test it,  but apt-daily.service doesn't show up anywhere in systemd-analyze blame

Does he require samba ?

No it's really only used for internet browsing and maybe email

and although it runs well it's a bit slow to boot (1min 10 secs) from post screen to login

It's not unbearably slow but  think it could be faster so I ran systemd-analyze blame to see if anything showed up and I got the following output

Code: [Select]
gordon@gordon-HP-620 ~ $ systemd-analyze blame
Bootup is not yet finished. Please try again later.
gordon@gordon-HP-620 ~ $

it doesn't seem to clear even as much as 30 mins after boot

I then ran top from the terminal and it showed plymouthd still running which I don't think is right

Code: [Select]
  PID USER      PR  NI    VIRT    RES    SHR S  %CPU %MEM     TIME+ COMMAND

 2153 gordon    20   0 3101752 283992 146420 S   5.0  4.7   1:08.87 firefox     

I tried killing plymouthd but it made no difference

any help would be much appreciated

You could run androidx86 in a VM or Dual boot for apk's, I don't know how well it works I've never used it


There's a couple of things I don't quite understand

(1) Can you explain how you managed to delete a file while in the process of moving it ?
(2) Can you tell us where you were moving it to ?
(3) df -h lists file usage how did you manage to find it using that command ?
(4) Can you explain how you "undeleted" it ?

As far as I'm aware if it's permanently deleted there's no easy way to recover it (if it's recoverable at all) whether it's a Windows partition or otherwise

Something like TestDisk or photorec would possibly recover it , however I would advise you if you intend to go down that road Do not write any files to that drive meantime  in fact if the lost file is super important to you I'd suggest you remove or disconnect it from the machine immediately

You would need another drive equal to or larger in size than the drive you want to recover files from

There are many tutorials online to guide you through the process but here's a couple to give you some idea whats involved

Good luck

Hi guys

I think I've found a solution by changing the DNS settings in the router from & (TalkTalk) to & (OpenDNS)

It's now connecting instantly to the network & I'm able to access their webpage without a problem.

I can't be sure at this point if it's fixed permanently but I'm quietly confident it is so I'll mark it SOLVED meantime
