General Discussion / Re: Weird Etcher Error
« Last post by PCNetSpec on November 21, 2019, 04:57:28 pm »
I'm gonna guess the reason the etcher appimage wouldn't run was because you never marked it as executable (and possibly because you then compounded the issue by attempting to run it with elevated privileges).

Remember all binary executables like appimages will have their execute bit disabled when they are downloaded .. you will need to manually re-enable the execute bit with say:
Code: [Select]
cd "~/Downloads/Etcher 1.5"
then
Code: [Select]
chmod +x ./balenaEtcher-1.5.63-x64.AppImage
then you should be able to run it simply by double-clicking on it, or from the commandline with
Code: [Select]
./balenaEtcher-1.5.63-x64.AppImage
no need to run it as root .. in fact appimages are designed to be run in userspace so likely should not be run as root.



A word of advice - best not to use whitespaces in directory or file names - such as your Etcher 1.5 folder - whitespaces will cause you problems in the CLI requiring you to work around them, Etcher_1.5 would have been a better foldername ;)



If you're still having problems with Etcher
Code: [Select]
mkdir ~/Downloads/Etcher_1.5
then
Code: [Select]
cd ~/Downloads/Etcher_1.5
then
Code: [Select]
wget https://github.com/balena-io/etcher/releases/download/v1.5.63/balena-etcher-electron-1.5.63-linux-x64.zip
then
Code: [Select]
unzip balena-etcher-electron-1.5.63-linux-x64.zip
then
Code: [Select]
chmod +x ./balenaEtcher-1.5.63-x64.AppImage
then to run it
Code: [Select]
./balenaEtcher-1.5.63-x64.AppImage

As Alynur is suggesting .. if you already have Pep10 installed

a) In Peppermint 10 use USB Stick Formatter - to format the USB stick.

then

b) In Peppermint 10 use USB Image Writer - to write the ISO image to the USB stick.

both USB Stick Formatter and USB Image Writer are in the main menu of Peppermint 10 (under the System category).

Здравствуйте. Новенький и на мяте 10. И тоже долго грузится система. А решение не увидел у Panteluke, перешёл с винды и ещё не разобрался - что и как. Пожалуйста, объясните по бубочкам - что и как изменить, чтоб система быстрее грузилась. После загрузки всё работает лучше, чем в Windows. Осталось с загрузкой решить и будет класс.

Saving the newly created /usr/share/desktop-directories/xfce-browsers.directory file produced eight error messages, of which the first five were essentially "_gtk_widget_captured_event: assertion 'WIDGET_REALIZED_FOR_EVENT (widget, event)' failed" and the last three were "Set document metadata failed: Setting attribute metadata::xed-spell-language not supported."

The Firefox test launcher appears to be the same as before. Pasting in the new suggestion,and then saving it, produced seven error messages: first, "gdk_window_get_window_type: assertion 'GDK_IS_WINDOW (window)' failed"; then a handful of "gdk_window_get_window_type: assertion 'GDK_IS_WINDOW (window)' failed"; and ending with "gtk_action_group_get_action: assertion 'GTK_IS_ACTION_GROUP (action_group)' failed." If I got any such error messages previously, I think I may have failed to report them. If so, that was due to the assumption that such error messages are commonplace.

IGNORE THOSE ERRORS .. in fact they are not errors, they are just WARNINGS from Gtk/Xed

Are we saying that the solution is to do the category-level surgery in the all-users /etc/xdg/menus/xfce-applications.menu file, not in my own account's

You probably **could** do it in your user specific files .. all I know is if you undo the changes you've made up to this point and follow my instructions IT WILL WORK.

Where you go from here as far as attempting it in your user specific files is up to you ;)
(I don't mean to sound awkward, but until the Peppermint 10 Respin is released I won't really have any more time to spend on this. If you still have questions then, I'll attempt to come back to this .. until then, there is a solution above should you choose to use it)

Oh hang on .. so this is a dual boot setup ?

If you have 2 Linux OS's, you may be changing the wrong copy of GRUB.

Здравствуйте. У меня Compaq nx 7400.  2006 года. Peppermint стал и работает хорошо. Вот только грузится долго,  1,2 - 1,8 минуты. И не могу ускорить. Наверно у меня мозгов не хватает или у ноутбука ))). Может кто подскажет - как можно ускорить.

@Papelac

Can you please start a new topic in say the

Support > New Users

forum. This forum is "General Discussion" not a support forum, AND you're posting your question on someone else's topic.

The reason we as people to create their own support topics is so they can be marked as (SOLVED) when a fix is found.

Thanks in advance :)

Hi Sn33x,

Since we prefer that each issue be given its own thread and (descriptive) title, could you please move your first issue to a separate thread (perhaps with a title such as "Replacing initial sys admin with a new sys admin") ??  ;)

Thanks in advance.

Regards,

Thank you very much for your help!

I prefer to work with Peppermint 9, but usually, other users prefer Peppermint 5. So, the needing for the opening menu.

I had worked mainly with google (docs, Chrome, Mail, etc...). I understand that maybe, could be conflict somewhere in the deeper code. So, by now, I work more with Firefox.

I succeeded to open Peppermint 9 and updated the grub file; seems to work better, thought it still not show the menu. Using ESC key and arrows, I can start in P9 or let the automatic opening in P5.

It looks as the whole screening is out of the main monitor; as I have 2 different monitors connected, could it be some kind of conflict with monitors, in the opening of the computer?

The computer is a "All-in-One" Asus; the second monitor is a large tv. I suppose the main monitor is the computer one.

Again, thank you very much for your help.
