Advanced Topics / Changing Resolution Logs Me Out (SOLVED)
« Last post by clatterfordslim on August 21, 2019, 06:30:57 am »
Hello all

I'm currently on a new build I have just finished, it's the same motherboard AsRock b450m Pro 4,  Ryzen 5 2600 CPU running through a 1030 low profile Nvidia card, 16GB GSkills Ram 3200. This computer apart from the graphic card is the same as the one I'm typing this in. I have Peppermint 9 installed and was going to follow the script to upgrade to Pep 10. every time I change resolution to something more readable it logs me out. I cannot get back in, have done the usual sudo service lightdm restart and tried logging back in, but nay it says. I logged in as guest and get this error No session for pid 3724 and as guest I cannot update it, obviously. Never have I had this problem with peppermint before, so what I'm going to do, is reinstall live here on the forum and choose delete disc and install and will report back.  ;D

Installation / Problem with installing Peppermint 10 32 bit
« Last post by Sokretes on August 21, 2019, 12:07:45 am »
Im running Peppermint 8 on my netbook (32 bit obviously). Downloading Peppermint 10 32-bit is fine but when I boot it from  the install, Im just presented with a black sceen which has flickered from a paisley grey then black screen? Pressing the powerbutton after a while simply shuts the computer down. I have an ISO of Peppermint 9 and that installs ok. Any clues?

What I have tried:
Downloading ISO with different browsers (Chromium and Firefox)
Burnt to USB with diff software (Peppermint's own USB writer, and Etcher)

Falling for the Foxy one eh :)

Really, I haven't used Fx regularly since ver 3.6.

And, I wasn't impressed with it until a month or so ago.

I don't know what changed for me, except that I forced myself to us it, for awhile.

Almost everything I hated about it have disappeared; and I don't think it psychosomatic.

Or, maybe it is  >:(

What are you running Peppermint on? / Re: Laptop recommendations
« Last post by VinDSL on August 20, 2019, 08:22:35 pm »
(oh, also if buying one make sure it has a backlit keyboard, once you've used one you'll wonder how you managed without .. most did when they were originally sold, but it may have been refurbed with a non-backlit KB to save a few pennies, so check ..

Golden advice  :)

(I prefer the 15.6" screen of the E6530 to the 14" screen on VinDSL's E6430, but that's a preference thing and beyond that they're the same machine .. I guess the 14" would be more 'mobile' considering they're heavy, but failing eyesight just makes the 15.6" that tiny bit more comfortable for me)

Right. It's a compromise, for sure.

I've got a 15.4" Toshiba Satellite, but you'll hardly ever see me mentioning it (or elsewhere) because I hardly ever use it. It's too big for my purposes.

I need to lug my lappy all over the country, in a shoulder bag; and mil-spec E-series Dells are built like tanks. I use it on airplane snack trays during flights, cramped banquet room tables, conference rooms with paperwork spread around it; and on my lap, when I get back to the hotel room.

And, then there's the 'ego thing'. Sitting in board meetings, surrounded by MacBook Airs, high-end HPs, and so forth; anything bigger than a 14" lappy doesn't cut it.  Ppl look at you like, "What's wrong with that guy?"

The Dell Latitude E6430 has street creds. It's probably what most of them are issued, back at the office.

And, yes, I need to play around with the resolution in apps. I'm typing this in Opera, and the res is set at 110%. In other apps, I need to adjust the res anywhere you 60%-130%, in order to save my eye-sight. It just goes with the turf.

On the RAM usage, 8GB is plenty on this E6430. Uptime is 1 day, and it's using .99 GB as I type. Of course, everyone's situation is different. 16GB is a bare minimum on my Dell OptiPlex 7010, which has bots running in the background. But, I digress  :)
