Yep, 11.04 was when I went looking for a replacement and found Peppermint 2 :)
(and I never left)

A good thing you never left or there probably never would not be a Peppermint 10  ;)

I thought VinDSL would get a kick out of my "minimal" Debian install running i3 and still using more ram

A few old posts on that the old Toshiba NB505 which sounds like it's similarly spec to your ASUS Eee PC

Is there any refresh rate limitation with the installer?  I think my moniter goes to 24 or 30hz in 4k

Thanks again

Played around with the netbook, for a couple of hours today.

Knocked the usage down to 150 MiB  :o





When I first did the OEM install, it was taking 150-ish seconds for a cold boot. I was rather disappointed.

After a little tweaking, I got boot times down to 50-ish seconds. Still nothing to write home about...

Now, after some major haxoring, it boots in under 25 seconds - roughly the same as winders XP.

It's MUCH more lively and responsive now, and a pleasure to use. YaY Team Peppermint!  :)

Software & Applications / Clementine not fetching music data when playing CDs
« Last post by dave8647 on May 26, 2019, 06:55:17 pm »
I have been trying the Clementine music player - version 1.3.1 as installed from the Software Manager in Peppermint 10.

My problem is that the music data (artist - album - track titles - etc) are not being fetched from the internet. I confirmed on the Clementine forum that this should happen automatically.

It was suggested that I try installing the Asunder CD Ripper to see if it brings in this data. So I tried that and Asunder does get all that data correctly. So if Asunder can get it, why not Clementine? The person who responded to me on the Clementine forum uses Debian, and Clementine works fine fetching the music data, so it was suggested I bring this question here to see if it is a Peppermint problem.

Could someone who has Peppermint 10 and Clementine on a PC with a CD drive try this out and see what happens?

If anyone has any ideas about this, please let me know what to try.

Okay I have followed these steps and the module is installed
http://ubuntuhandbook.org/index.php/2019/04/nstall-rtl8723de-wifi-driver-ubuntu-19-04/
But my WiFi still does not work, so I try to load the module using
sudo modprobe -r rtl8723de && Sufi modprobe rtl8723de

When I try that I get the message
ERROR: could not insert rtl8723de : Operation not performed

I consider the autoplay problem to be solved.

I will start another topic to address the Clementine problem.

I followed these steps
https://askubuntu.com/questions/983251/realtek-semiconductor-rtl8723de-device-d723-issue
And it said I would need to set a password to enter upon reboot. Nothing happened when I rebooted...

I agree with Scifidude,

If they tick that box searching for the latest Nvidia driver during seems simple enough.

Honestly I've rarely found it difficult to use "Additional Drivers" in the Peppermint Settings Panel



I'm using an Nvidia 750ti if anyone needs help testing.
