Okay that's going to make things much more difficult.

Did wireless work from the LiveUSB by any chance ?

[EDIT]

Oh, and does your BIOS allow you to disable "Secureboot" ?

Hmm that looks pretty cool .. testing it now.

There's no need to add the PPA in Peppermint 9, just download the .deb file from here
https://launchpad.net/~cteehayder/+archive/ubuntu/ffmulticonverter/+files/ffmulticonverter_1.8.0-dmo1-1ubuntu1_all.deb
and double-click it to install.

I'm a big fan of not adding PPA's where it's not necessary (or at least disabling them post install), specially where the owner isn't well known to you and therefore trusted..

No.
I don't have a adapter for ethernet nor do I have a USB wireless adapter.
Sorry!

I've switched to Linux Mint XFCE and don't have the issues there despite it also using xfce-power-manager and no xscreensaver, it does lock on lid close and no loss off mouse pointer.

That's surprising, simplescan doesn't work with the V39 at all IIRC.
