Development / Re: Request for help with translations for ICE
« Last post by pizzalovingnerd on August 04, 2020, 04:59:48 pm »
So with the new ice version for Peppermint 11, we are changing some UI elements which means that we need to update translations.

Right now we have full translations for:
English
Portuguese (Brazil)

And we have partial translations for:
French
Japanese
Dutch
Polish
Portuguese (Portugal)
Swedish
Chinese (China)

And for all any other language, we need new translations.
Our biggest priority is finishing the languages that were partially translated because I don't want existing users of these languages to lose support.

Unfortunately, I did not find any of the relevant settings in BIOS of my laptop.

This is my first post ... I was looking for a distro that is fast and configurable. This distro gives me both. I love it.

With 8G of ram and an SSD it feels like I am running on 16G ram. Everything just opens up instantly. Thanks to the Dev's and all involved for such a great distro!

Regards.

As far as your floppy disk goes, have you checked the BIOS again to make sure that the floppy is either no longer examined at boot or is at least at the bottom of the list of drives that are examined during boot?  :-\

Good idea!

As an aside, my 32-bit PM10R doorstop test box has both a floppy (diskette) and CD-ROM drive(s). I thought it was rather silly to have them sitting there, unused, so I got them working.

During power-up, PM quickly checks for the floppy and CD-ROM, then proceeds to boot from the SSD. The only reason I notice it is because the green LED indicators light-up for a second or two.

If the OP can't disable them in BIOS, he might consider getting them to work. That way, there shouldn't be a lull at start-up.   ;)

Here's what my '/etc/fstab' file looks like...

Software & Applications / Re: Synaptic Package Manager asks for password
« Last post by Slim.Fatz on August 02, 2020, 01:09:23 pm »
Hi KEP3,

Since you are not required to enter a password to login to the desktop & you have never set up an extra superuser/admin account, could it be that what you think is the system password actually is not the system password?  :-\

You can check this by doing the following: open a terminal and enter

Code: [Select]
sudo gedit /etc/fstab
This will ask for your (system) password. If what you enter results in the text editor opening the fstab file then your (system) password is correct (do not change this file in any way if it opens -- just close the editor).

Regards,

Got the problem fixed. Was able to get into passwd to make the needed changes.

Sorry about not posting as resolved. Completely forgot. Yes, the other password problem was resolved.

No, I do not have a password to the desktop. I do have to jump thru hoops on my HP laptop to get to Peppermint. On my desktop I just selected the OS at startup.
No, I have not set up a superuser / admin account.

Next?

Hi Syepod,

Glad to hear that you now have things working!  8) If you are satisfied that your issue has been resolved, please go back to the first message in this thread and click on the Modify button. Then add (SOLVED) to the end of the Subject: line and save the change.

As far as your floppy disk goes, have you checked the BIOS again to make sure that the floppy is either no longer examined at boot or is at least at the bottom of the list of drives that are examined during boot?  :-\
