Hi Jayne,
Thank you for sharing his last message to us, we all loved him too. Also thank you for sharing Mark with us here at Peppermint. I shed a tear every time I come on here, because of all the love everyone has written. We all knew Mark in our own ways and he will stay in our hearts forever.

He'll probably be looking at these messages everyone has sent saying don't, you've made me embarrassed or something. I'll see if I can find the post I posted ages ago, that Mark deserves a accolade for the amount of time he puts in helping others. He replied with words like the above.

My condolences to you and your family.

Mark Stagg AKA Clatterfordslim.

Hi Jayne,

Thank you for sharing some of Mark's final thoughts with us.  We also loved him.  He was a dear friend and teacher.  Be comforted in the knowledge, that people from all over the planet, have benefitted from his expertise, patience and kindness.  He literally changed people's lives for the better  ;).  We all miss him immensely  :'(.

I am honoured to have known Mark.  He was an incredible, one of a kind man.  My condolences to you and your family.

With sympathy

Software & Applications / Re: XFce Power Manager
« Last post by clatterfordslim on Today at 06:39:49 pm »
I seem to have an issue with the XFce Power Manager in that it never really allows the battery to be charged beyond 59% and l do not see any way to adjust the settings to allow a full charge...new to the machine.

Hello @windrose... I got many hits on a search for lenovo batteries not charging fully... https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/troubleshoot/LPT000249 The XFCE power manager isn't a powering utility in itself, but merely displays the laptop's batteries status. You may want to check your particular model against the support on the lenovo site.

I have or I should say touch wood and whistle no problems with my Lenovo Yoga 500.

Installation / Re: Install Respin on Linux dual boot

Hi dwbsovran, you only need to select "Something Else" when installing and from there you can choose which partition you want to overwrite.

I will be wanting to do the upgrade but being a nooby was hoping someone might enlighten me as to what the different colours in the code represent?

The colors have no meaning for those following the upgrade instructions @windrose... proceed as normal. If you need any assistance or have any issues, please open a separate new post.

Hi Lsandeep, you won't be able to partition a mounted partition, so you should boot into a usb live session before trying to partition your hard drive.

Hardware / Re: Need help with DropBox on GPD Pocket 2

Hi, AndyInMokum,

Thank you for the reply. I wanted to ask you for something else that you or other Peppermint OS developer can easily do. I tried it by myself and failed.

The Ubuntu MATE respin for GPD Pocket 2 is made by applying a script to the regular Ubuntu MATE 19.10. The script is here

https://github.com/wimpysworld/umpc-ubuntu

They claim that this script works on any Ubuntu derivative.

After I bought the GPD Pocket 2, I spoke with Mark on this forum and he gave me instructions to run this script. I installed the Peppermint 10 respin on the GPD Pocket 2, and it installed with no problems.

Then I tried to run the script, and I apparently did something wrong because it did not go through.

If you or someone else could include that script into the Peppermint 10 respin (call it Peppermint OS 10 for GPD Pocket 2) that might be the ultimate fix of all my problem.

The link to this test re-spin could be shared privately so that I could test before it goes public.

When I installed Peppermint 10 on the GPF Pocket 2 everything worked out of the box including the DropBox running on the LUKS encrypted hard drive. This makes me think that the problem is not with the DropBox.There were several things that needed to be fixed though:

1. touch screen
2. the heights of the title bars on the windows - when the fonts were adjusted for HiDPi the title bars did not increase in size and were too small for those large fonts.
3. the login screen was still 90-degree rotated which was annoying

I hoped that the script would fix all these problems.

On December 28th, 2019, I described my experience with GPD Pocket 2, Peppermint 10 and Ubuntu MATE on this forum. I hoped Mark would help me make Peppermint OS work on GPD Pocket 2.

Probably he was not feeling well at the time of my post already.

Is it doable or I am asking for too much?

Making Peppermint 10 running on this little device would help to cut idle resources consumption down by 50%. Peppermint is so much lighter than Ubuntu MATE, and would be an ideal OS for this device.

Thank you in advance,

XVC

Hi essgl, I think the reason it didn't boot was because your target for device for boot loader was sdc1, I think it should have been just sdc.

Hi Jayne,

Thank you very much for sharing this post with us! It is somewhat easier for me (and, I am sure, for everyone here) to read one of Mark's last messages to us.
We are all so grateful for what he has done for us, for what he has given us, for what he has taught us. We will never forget him:'( :-*

 Please also accept my sincere condolences.

I wish you and the family all the best in this most difficult time,

-- John
