Hi Johan,

I know those already, as I am on the testing team for the beta and release candidates for Peppermint 10  ;)

But thanks anyway, because others need to check them out too.  8)

Installation / Re: SWAP PARTITION vs Swap File
« on: May 18, 2019, 03:27:42 am »
Can I install GParted, seems it's discontinued, because the DISKS doesn't let me move partitions, which w 17, I have to on one.

Hi snowy46,

Not sure what you mean with "which w 17, I have to on one"  :-\ but, yes, you can install gparted using various methods (e.g. using the Synaptic package manager -- which is perhaps easiest if you are uncomfortable using the terminal -- or by using terminal commands, just to name two). Using terminal commands: open a terminal then enter this:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install gparted
Well, youz didn't answer the question - is having a separate near SWAP partition better or a Swap file???


This question does not have a definitive answer. Depending on your needs and purposes one might be better than the other. The same goes for the size: You might need 4 or 8 Gigs or you might be wasting space with that much and only need 1 or 2 Gigs. These things do not have a simple "black or white" answer that applies to every user. It's similar to the question "Which is better: a bicycle with skinny racing tires or one with fat knobby tires?"  ;)

Hi Undiscovery,

I find it very difficult to understand the translations that your tranlator is producing. Maybe try one message in your native language and let us try to translate it. If that does not work, then continue using your translator.  ;)

News and Reviews / Peppermint 9 32-bit on Linux Welt XXL DVD
« on: May 09, 2019, 05:11:42 am »
Hi folks,

Here in Germany the current issue of the german language magazine Linux Welt XXL has come out with various distros on its included DVD, one of which is Peppermint 9 in the 32-bit version. Unfortunately I did not see any article describing PeppermintOS (although I must admit that I did not buy the magazine and only looked at the table of contents and skimmed around the articles a little).

Just thought I would mention this, mostly as FYI.

Hi grecodiverdi,

It's no wonder that you had errors trying to install an incorrect package: the package name that ends with armhf.deb is not for your Intel Pentium cpu !! Arm-based processors are not made by Intel and are (particularly from the kernel perspective) completely different than any Intel Pentium processors (which is what is in your computer).

Go back and check the instructions on that page again. I do not see that package mentioned anywhere. The armhf.deb package is for Arm-based processors and you can read about them here if you wish -- but for you that would just be a waste of time since you need i386 architecture packages.  ;)

If you are still not sure which packages you need, ask here before trying any of this -- otherwise you alone are responsible for what results.

Hi clatterfordslim,

Paranoid or not: who in their right mind runs any Micro$oft products (except, of course, for those forced to do that by their job/employer)? Get smart and get rid of M$ products !! Go 100% Linux (or BSD) and then: go PeppermintOS;)

Hi VinDSL,

I know what you mean about temps over 105 F: several years ago I was doing a five day hike in AZ and on the last day the temp got up to 109 F (42.8 C) !!  :o   Fortunately, we were hiking along a little stream (that actually had water in it -- for those not acquainted with AZ, streams often do not have any water in them) and every 20-30 minutes we would take off out backpacks and lay down on our backs in the stream for several minutes, then get up and continue the hike. It worked really well !!  ;D

Hi contheosius,

Great that you figured out the solution by yourself!  8)

It would also be great if you now go back to your first post in this thread and hit the Modify button and then change the Subject: line of the post so that something like (SOLVED) is at the beginning or end of the subject line. Then save the result (of course).  ;) ;D

Thanks in advance.

I'm using Antix 17.4.1 and Firefox ESR 60.6.1 and removed ublock Origin and I have zero adds showing up.
Hi 151tom,

It's been published that the ESR version of Firefox is immune to this problem.

Hi ceetee,

The problems you describe following an update sound very much like a (newly installed) kernel problem. Try using/booting to a previous kernel and see if the problems are still present.  ;)

Hi PCNetSpec,

I think they are fixing it. On my machines now there is no amber background. I'll still wait before changing the key back to true.

Hi M3TWJ,

Try these commands (found here) in a terminal and tell us if the touchpad responds normally (it is supposed to work immediately after running the commands, but the changes do not survive a reboot):

Code: [Select]
sudo -i
echo 'on' > /sys/bus/i2c/devices/i2c-SYNA3602\:00/power/control
rmmod i2c_hid
modprobe i2c_hid

If it does, maybe PCNetSpec can tell you how to make the changes survive a reboot.

Hey! WTF ?!?

All add-ons just started working again before I went to try rebooting!  :-\ Well, I think I'll leave the key set at false -- at least until I see something about Mozerello having cleared up its problems.  :P
