New Users / Re: [SOLVED] Keyring keep show up
« Last post by perknh on April 01, 2020, 03:41:37 pm »
I know that this has been (SOLVED), but for those out there wishing to learn more about keyring and why it is used, then you can read this recent article:) 

Yes, you're right, Slim.  There is another side to this story.  The virtue of the keyring is that it helps protect Chrome and Chromium.  It's like amping up the security of Chrome or Chromium to that of the security of a Chromebook.  It makes Chrome and Chromium even more secure and private than it would be by default. ;)

Installation / Re: Can't install Peppermint 10 on HP Elitebook

Ok I used Rufus to build the USB and that worked fine.
I thought I would try a different Linux to see if it was the install routine  I chose MX Linux and that has installed fine first time so it was not hardware. There must be an issue with the install routine or the package in some way.
I will stay with MX for now and try Peppermint again some other time.

Thanks for the responses.

Software & Applications / Re: Problem running Tizonia as a snap package
« Last post by spence on April 01, 2020, 02:32:57 pm »

A user has raised an issue in Tizonia's bug tracker:
https://github.com/tizonia/tizonia-openmax-il/issues/703
...
I'm trying to find out if I should raise a bug in Peppermint OS's bug tracker.

To second @Slim.Fatz's comment, all bugs related to this particular snap belong on their site, not ours.

Furthermore, while #teampeppermint doesn't prevent anyone from installing flatpaks & snaps on their own systems, it is likely best that any issues resulting from flatpak & snap installation are best reported to their respective owners, no matter which distro they're creating problems.

Installation / Re: Backing up MBR using Live USB
« Last post by Slim.Fatz on April 01, 2020, 02:10:03 pm »
Hi hellbraker,

As far as I know the Peppermint installer does not back up and restore the MBR. However, the program gparted (which I believe is included in the Live USB) will permit the user to do this.  ;)

Hi tizonia,

To begin with: Team Peppermint do not encourage use of Snap packages. Just because the Snapcraft devs discourage use of XDG_CONFIG_HOME in the snap environment is no reason to file a bug report with the Peppermint bug tracker. On the contrary, I would submit a bug report with the Snapcraft devs.  ;)

Installation / Backing up MBR using Live USB
« Last post by hellbraker on April 01, 2020, 01:42:47 pm »
Hi there,

I have to say thank you for releasing Peppermint. Because I tried, Ubuntu, Lubuntu, Puppy Linux, Elementary OS and finally POP OS.  They all boot up. But they don't recognise or needs further work in recognising my old system. Except for Peppermint. It just work out of the box including an old Belkin WiFi dongle.
Now a bit about my machine. It has no UEFI but uses MBR to boot Windows 7 32 bit. Ram is a meagre 1.5 GB.  Hard disk is of 140 ish GB space.

What I intend is to dual boot. But before even attempting this, I would like to know if the Live USB can back up and restore the current MBR if things get wrong. I am new to Linux so please bear that in mind. Thank you

Hey, I'm so lucky today, but I still need your help.

Today I'm downloading an app that requires newer graphics drivers, then I found this page : https://askubuntu.com/questions/166224/how-do-i-install-the-intel-graphics-driver-in-my-system . And at the fourth answer's reply I found out that other people has also encountered the same problem and solved it. Yes, I DID run the same command given in the answer before everything happened!!!

But I don't understand tho... I still need your help.

The answer's reply:
Quote
This way damage my system (UBUNTU 18.04) after boot in display manager keyboard not works and I can't login. I think this because xserver-xorg-video-intel deprecated and ubuntu not use it any more. This steps solve issue: Reboot in grub give 1 as parameter to linux and start system in single user. rm /etc/X11/Xorg.conf and apt purge xserver-xorg-video-intel. purge display manager then reinstall it. apt install lightdm to reconfigure display system.

Reboot in grub and give 1 as parameter to linux?? Pls explain the steps for me, I'm still a linux newbie...

Need help..... :(

Hardware / Screen resolution lost on reboot
« Last post by Bear on April 01, 2020, 12:51:31 pm »
The first time I installed Pep10 on this machine the display worked fine. Now, re-installed on an SSD, it has trouble with the screen resolution. It first booted with blank areas at the left and right of the screen I found ARandR and persuaded it to set the resolution I wanted (1440 * 900) and managed to save it. That worked for a few days but now it looes it's setting on every reboot. Here's what's in the machine:

Where should I start looking please? As far as I can tell I've no power options set that might fight the screen and I've not set up a screensaver of any sort. I do use my own wallpaper (a photo of my cat) but it does the same thing with the default Peppermint wallpaper.
