And it also might not hurt to run:
Code: [Select]
dmesg > ~/Desktop/dmesg.txt

this command did not work, got the output that the file did not exist, but i think i have got it done and hope you can read it properly

well, that is a good message, as a novice you always unsure ;-)

can it be that the not removed other kernels have influence?

Sinds i installed peppermint 9 there were some kernel updates and now i have the feeling  the startup is getting slower, and i mean the time between power on and the login screen.
i did read a topic about a slow starting system and tried the following option
sudo dmesg | grep -i "error\|warn\|fail"

and this was the result

Thank you, great howto and works!

great howto, worked like a charm on a dell E6320

i was looking for an answer to this to and found something that seems to be in the xserver-xorg-input-synaptics
Synaptics TouchPad driver for X.Org server.1.9.0-1ubuntu1

 * It also provides a daemon to disable touchpad while typing at the keyboard
   and thus avoid unwanted mouse movements (see syndaemon(1))

i know that my dell E6320 has a FN F5 function key to disable the touchpad ut that does not seem to work.
so how can i activate this above mention t function?

Thank you PCNetSpec
this worked with firefox but with thunderbird it failed.
downloaded the dictionary files tot the folder download, went to thunderbird  addon manager  clickt the little gear wheel and choose addon install from file.
strangely when i located the file in the download  folder with the definition for add on files it did not install.
had to change that to all files and than it worked.
so now, both, thunderbird and firefox have the dictionary's i needed

thank you for helping me out

firefox uses english in the menu bar, thunderbird Dutch

i have in the peppermint setting . language choosen to use systemwide Dutch ( Nederlands)

but when i typ something in a mail ore this topic, a word is underlined, rightclick on it, go to languages, then the only choice is English.
although installed with the addon manager in both firefox and thunderbird, Dutch, German and Frysk are not displayed to choose from

i can' t afford new laptops so i always buy second hand.
only issue, if you can call it that, is only 1 USB port, and the sticky material around the keyboard/touchpad,
haven' t found a solution for the last yet
but i like the things Dell build

these are the language pack i have installed

but when i am writing a email and want to select a language only English appears, i can not choose another one because its not there.
the same is for firefox.
it appears in the addon manager but can' t choose them because they don' t appear

New Users / thank you for this OS

from the Netherlands, completely done with MS win10 after the upgrade 1803 i decided to make a switch to linux
the last 10 years i tried  ubuntu and some derivates, and linux light and peppermint were the best choices for me.
peppermint won with its MS office online integration because for my work i have to do office work that others can open again in word.
if i can get the last problems solved it will be a great OS

as a hint, i think a lot off people would make the switch easier when some things could made be easier.
like you have mozebackup for windows to migrate thunderbird mail and firefox data to another windows computer.
now you can sync firefox with a new tool, but i havent found it for thunderbird and have to manually move my contacts

but thank you for this OS

somehow in firefox and thunderbird i am not able to install the language dictionary add on so that it works.
it appears in the addon tab, but when i want to switch it is not appearing in the list
i mean right click on a word, > language.
there is only standing english, but installing Dutch and german will show them in the addon manager, but not in the list mentiont above.
tried to download and install, but it does not work.

what am i doing wrong?

Hello all there.
a dual boot install on a dell latitude E6320 with i5 cpu.
tried different kinds off linux where peppermint and linux light came up at best for me.
peppermint did win because off the integration of Microsoft online..

some issues are
i can't setup the touchpad to automatically stop when using a usb mouse

why would i want that? because when typing the cursor suddenly is standing somewhere else.
but else works like a charme
