Greetings,
I've been working on a problem for a few weeks now and trying different ideas.  The basic idea is that I want to sync my LibreOffice config files across computers.  When I create a new template I would like it to be available on other computers.  I would like the user auto-correct and spell check to sync so I don't have to run the spell check on every file on every computer.

I have ideas about sharing config between other programs.

I thought about working with symlinks via my Dropbox but what I'm finding is Dropbox stopped supporting symlinks in mid 2019.  I tried running LibreOffice from within a portable version installed in Dropbox but that idea was terrible because LibreOffice always wanted to connect to the .config files on the local machine and ignored the ones in Dropbox.  Changing paths didn't help with that because paths were often deleted or seemed to be ignored.  Uninstalling the local LibreOffice caused other apps to fail and very bad headaches.

I was running a sync via Pcloud and that worked fairly well because it lets me select any file or folder I want and sync to a folder in Pcloud.  The problem is that Pcloud is terribly slow because of the lousy rural satellite internet connection.  If I try to upload a batch of photos then my LibreOffice sync folder won't sync for hours or even days if the connection is slower than normal because the thing is bogged down with the photo uploads.  Once an upload is started I haven't found a way to stop it and allow other traffic to flow.

I've been reading and researching until I'm mind-boggled.  I can use the CLI to a limited extent but not fluent.  Doe anyone know of a fairly straightforward way to set up a sync over network?

I've looked at things like Syncthing but that demands that both machines are online at the same time.  I can't guarantee a connection on the home machine because cloud cover, power outages and my own goofs happen.  (If I forget to switch from a tethered link to the satellite link before I leave the home machine is offline.)

Is there a simple way, other than having to carry around a USB drive to have config files sync over the net?  If I find a way there may be other things I want to sync automatically.

Thanks.

I was working in Rapid Photo Downloader and the window suddenly snapped to a size wider than my monitor screen.  I can change the height of the window and I can change the panels within the window by dragging the slider but can not get the window to fit the monitor again.  The minimize button works but the maximize button only brings me back to the overly wide window.  The window menu offers the ability to resize the window but again I can only control the height.

I've been exploring the Window manager controls and have found nothing to help there.  alt+Shift+F7 brings up the window controls menu which allows me resize only the height.  Alt+f8 takes me to the resize from the lower right corner and once again has no effect on the window width.  Other programs seem to be working well and fit the monitor. 

I shut down all the windows and rebooted the computer to see if there was any effect and there is no change.

I will ask the same question on a site that includes Rapid Photo Downloader to see if it is specific to that application.

Any idea why the window size would suddenly change and freeze this way? 
How do I regain control?  I don't remember this happening before with any other application windows.

Any suggestions?


Edit;
The developer of the software Rapid Photo Downloader was able to help and identify the problem.  My file names for photos tend to be long and descriptive.  It worked in the past as a way to make the files more searchable.  The file I was working in had a name so long it filled the top bar of the window and the window had resized to accommodate it.  It has been marked as a bug and should be fixed later.

I've only been using the software a couple of days and so far I've been impressed with it.  It is a great way to sort photos and has saved me many, many hours of work.

Slim,
My response will show more ignorance.  First I hadn't really thought about trying to change the computer name back.  I have several different computers and tend to make the computer names descriptive enough identify which machine it's on.  My next consideration was how changing the computer name would or even could cause a cascade of failures with other programs.  That second bit of ignorance is because I changed the name of a drive once and gave myself a headache trying to get everything reconnected.

I don't know for sure what happened but Déjà-Dup suddenly started running correctly.  I installed Timeshift to see if my luck was any better and after it ran via rsync.  As soon as Timeshift finished running Déjà-Dup started.

I'm curious to know what just happened but it is working without any error messages.  If it starts acting strange again I'll post another reply.

Cavy,
I had just installed and run Timeshift and agree that so far it is pretty intuitive.  It ran without problems.

This is driving me a little nutty.  I've been trying to find a way to create automatic daily backups of my important files and system settings.

My most recent attempt was Déjà-Dup and if I had any hair to spare I'd probably pull it out.  I was using Déjà-Dup to backup the system.  I screwed up and trashed my Peppermint 10 Respin partition and had to do a fresh install.  I was able to install Déjà-Dup again and restore most of my system settings and files easily.

Here is the problem.  When I did the fresh install I changed the name of the computer slightly and Déjà-Dup won't run but gives me a computer name change error.

I've completely uninstalled Déjà-Dup and reinstalled it. No change.
I've deleted all the files to be saved and the location to save them and entered them back in. No change.
I've changed the name of the folder I want to save the backup to. No change.
I've created a new folder to save the backup to and directed Déjà-Dup to save there. The option to backup now is greyed out and I have no idea why.
Changing back to the original "save to" folder and the option to backup is still greyed out.

The Déjà-Dup GUI is as far as I'm concerned over simplified and offers no way to fix anything.

I've found plenty of bug reports about the problem but hours of searching has not led me to a way to fix the name change issue or explain why the backup option is greyed out and not functional.  Since I can't fix it by uninstalling I'm looking for a simple GUI backup tool that won't make me crazy with error messages.

Of course rsync is the favorite from what I can see but I'm not quite that proficient in some of the CLI use and really haven't had time or memory to deal with it.

Anybody have any Déjà-Dup fix suggestions?  It worked well when it worked.

Any suggestions of a backup tool?  I see plenty of them listed but I don't have the time to install and try each one.

Thanks.

This has been interesting.  I was using Firefox to try and download what I needed.  As I was looking at the site, only 64 bit was visible.  Hovering over and clicking on "Choose your version" only offered the 64 bit.  I had a thought after you posted your response and installed Chromium and went to the site with that browser.  It was amazing but the 32 bit option was offered and it did work!

I've got a fresh install of Peppermint 10 respin on and older Acer Netbook.  I've run Pcloud on the machine in the past but can't seem to get it installed on this fresh install.  (I know it isn't really "installed" but don't know what else to call it.) 

I've followed the instructions here https://forum.peppermintos.com/index.php/topic,6810.msg68894.html#msg68894 but nothing happens but an error message at the end.  Making it executable and double clicking the icon is not responsive either.  If I hadn't paid for storage space on Pcloud I wouldn't even bother because it's so often a problem.

I'm not even sure if I'm downloading the 32 bit app or 64 bit or if it even makes a difference.  I've been looking for quite a while and can't find anyplace where 32 bit is specified as the download.  The last command run returns this error message which makes me wonder if it is a 64 bit download.

 ~/.pcloud/binary-executable/pcloud

As always any help would be appreciated.

Hardware / Does anyone know if there is a way to control the fan?
« on: August 07, 2019, 01:59:41 am »
My wife's HP Pavilion dv4 laptop has cooling problems.  I was tired of the system freezing up and decided to dump Windows 7 and run Peppermint 10.  The machine has always run hot and now, with Peppermint installed, the fan is acting very annoying.  It runs up to full speed for about 1 second then cuts down to a slow speed for 10 seconds and it does it continuously.  I would love to be able to make the thing run at full speed all the time.  The thing runs very hot so the case feels hot to touch.

I've checked the bios and the only setting is to have the run fan continuously but doesn't give any control over the fan speed.  The fan didn't act like this with Windows installed so I'm thinking there is a way to control it within Peppermint but I haven't figured it out yet.

I've done a bunch of research but not finding any useful information.  There was one suggestion from 2008 on an Ubuntu site but it didn't help with the problem.

I was certain I had marked it solved.

@PcSpecNet,
You often know just the right questions to ask to get me looking in the right place.  When you asked about the multiple repositories for WINE it caused me to go take a closer look.  I shut down the repositories least likely to be needed and tried again.  Over on the WINEhq site there was information about some dependencies that were not included in the WINE development branch.  Rather than installing them I went with the Stable version.  This time the install went well and WINE seems to be working well.  It just never occurred to me that the old repositories in the system could be causing the problems.

I have used the Development branch for several years because I had trouble running the software I use.  The Stable branch seems to have caught up with my software and is working well enough.

Thanks again!

13
Sorry PCNetSpec.  I'm such a novice at all this.  I hope one day I can retire from my day job and have time to really understand this stuff.  I do always appreciate your help. 

I've probably added a different repository for every time Wine has given me upgrade headaches.  How I get the thing to work at all may be blind luck until now in all honesty.

The first command.

"(xed:3443): Gdk-CRITICAL **: 15:54:54.299: gdk_window_get_window_type: assertion 'GDK_IS_WINDOW (window)' failed" is completely new to me.  I've never seen it before and have not a clue what it means yet.

I attempted to run a program via Wine as I have many times and the program failed to load.  When I tried to select from the "Open With" menu none of the Wine entries were visible.  I went to Synaptic to uninstall Wine and start with a fresh install and still it wasn't available as an option to open my software.

The next step was to uninstall completely Wine and do the install via the command line.  Sometimes it seems to work better though I don't understand exactly why.  I'm seeing error messages I don't know how to resolve despite a few hours of internet searching.  I thought that running "autoremove" might be a help.  It didn't change the error messages.

The following packages have unmet dependencies:

E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

Back to Synaptic to try an install from there assuming I was missing something as usual.  I ended up with this;

E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
E: Error, pkgProblemResolver::Resolve generated breaks, this may be caused by held packages.
E: Unable to correct dependencies
E: Error, pkgProblemResolver::Resolve generated breaks, this may be caused by held packages.

So far I have not been able to identify the broken packages, if they actually exist nor have I been able to understand what "held" packages are or what to do about them.

Any suggestions?

I wasn't able to boot into Peppermint after adding a line to my fstab.  After much searching of the net and reading everything I could find about fstab I wasn't seeing the problem.

After I worked on some other issues and returned to fstab the problem was suddenly very clear.  I didn't put "UUID=" at the beginning of the line.  Once that was inserted everything worked as I had expected.  I deleted the original question and comments because they were irrelevant and an example of how easy it is to overlook the obvious.  When all else fails, look closer, possibly someplace else for the problem. :-[
