Hardware / Formatting SD Card in FAT 32 format using P9 [SOLVED}
« on: December 12, 2018, 09:34:23 pm »
I've got several game cameras that capture the wildlife around my place.  Once I've viewed the pictures, I like to format the cards to clean things up a little before reinstalling in the camera.  Problem is, when I use P9 to format them in a way "compatible with most systems and devies" I don't get FAT 32 which is what I need for the cameras.  I also end up with some weird partitioning issues so I cannot even reformat using a windows machine.  I have to go into disk part utility to clear the partitions and basically start from scratch in Win10.  I trying to get away from windows, so would like to figure out what I'm doing wrong and learn how to format in P9 so my SD is FAT 32.  \

Can anyone point me to a good tutorial or guide so I can read up and figure out what I'm doing wrong?  Is it even possible to format a 32GB card to FAT 32 using p9?

Yes.  I was able to get one of them to show finally after formatting it .  The other one?  Who knows, I think it may have given up the ghost because it won't show anywhere now. 

Anyway, thanks for the help.  I got one of them back (the importatnt one).

Correct, they do NOT show up under devices.  Only under Menu->settings->disks,  And the only option available there is to power them off, I can;t do ANYTHNG else with them.  And again, two different USB sticks on two different machines running P9,

Niw that you mention it, I don;t even have "devices" on my tree.

I can do it manually since that appears to keep the install smaller which is my goal. I'll try to find some directions on how to manually mount them . . . .

No.  Thy only show up under Menu->settings-> disks. But I can't do anything with them there.  They do NOT show up in File Manager.  Weird.

P9 on two different machines, so I don't think it's a hardware issued.  Tried two different sticks,

They show up under "disks" but are otherwise inaccessible to put content on or off of them.  They won;t load so as to be usable for files, etc.

Both worked fine on these machines before and work fine at my work PC (Win10)

What did I change by mistake and / or what am I doing wrong?

Sorry- I thought I posted the model #.  Will try again after work later. 

In the meantime .. . .  .  any thoughts as to why P9 doesn't even recognize the BT dongle when I plug it in?  It will recognize internal adapter, but I thought taht was the issue, so got an external one.  And p9 doesn't even acknowledge it's there.  Weird.  I think the adapter may be no good.

When  I use an external adapter, on the windows side I get "generic bluetooth radio- driver error" and on the Linux side I get no recognition that the adapter is even inserted.  So windows recognizes it, but says bad driver.  and P9 doesn't even recognize that it's plugged in.  Not sure if I have a hardware problem, a driver problem, or what.  Ran all the latest updates for P9 - didn't help.

I'm leaning towards a hardware issue.  Mouse connects just fine to my wife's new (relatively) Lenovo running Win 10 using internal BT adapter.

It's an N231.  Never had to do anything before to make it discoverable.  Gotta figure it out though.  I HATE this HP Touchpad!!!

This is what I get when i scan-  it just goes on forever and never finds the mouse-

Code: [Select]
[bluetooth]# list
Controller 70:F3:95:75:50:AC Internal Adapter [default]
[bluetooth]# power on
[CHG] Controller 70:F3:95:75:50:AC Class: 0x000c010c
Changing power on succeeded
[CHG] Controller 70:F3:95:75:50:AC Powered: yes
[bluetooth]# scan on
Discovery started
[CHG] Controller 70:F3:95:75:50:AC Discovering: yes
[bluetooth]#


when I scan with either the internal controller or an external USB controller, nothing shows up.  very weird.

Thanks for any ideas

BT Adapter works.  I'm dual boot with Win10 and it works there, but when I boot into P9, the BT adapter won't find the mouse when I perform a search.   It comes up blank like there a no BT devices out there. 

Any ideas?  I searched the forums and didn't see anything.

What are you running Peppermint on? / resurrected Toshiba NB 305
« on: January 17, 2018, 09:40:29 pm »
was given an old netbook running windows 7 starter that was SLOW SLOW SLOW. Upgraded to Win 10 and it was a little better,but not great.  Had heard of Linux but never really messed with it until this project.  maxed out the RAM and decided to give a LINUX based OS a try.  with some help from online tutorials and youtube, I was able to DL the OS, Numcheck it, create an install USB, reset the jacked up BIOS so I could boot from USB and Voila! here I am.  Really happy with the OS improvement though overall performance is still limited a little by the ATOM processor.  Overall is a fun little machine, fast enough for light surfing, email, etc.  And small / light/ durable enough to throw in a daypack and bounce around.  Now so much more to learn. . . .
