"Remember to update the KittyKat123 standards-version in MaryHadALittleLamb12?4 sakura's PCpl0d#911 control file" .. is very confusing ???

if Only I could get her to be that inventive... she still likes using her birthday and her dog's name...  which will be fine as long as this one's alive... she mailed me this one because her dead dog's name was the password to everything and she'd not opened it since it passed ...

Hi imgeka, welcome to Peppermint. If you are afraid of borking your system, there are a couple of safeguards you can take in case you do screw things up. First I would recommend installing Timeshift and creating a snapshot of your system. It's like creating a restore point in Windows. The second would be to create a DATA partition which will allow you to reinstall Peppermint if it comes to that, without losing any of your personal files. When I first started with Peppermint, I had no idea of what a terminal was, but I learned. Now I have 7 different operating systems installed in my computer with all of them linked to my DATA partition. And I'll tell you, for getting help from a forum such as this one, Peppermint is the best. When PCNetSpec gets involved, you know it's getting serious. Have fun, go through the tutorials, there's a lot here and a bunch of cool guys ready to help.  :)

Well, hang tight and maybe some Mac guy will happen by.  BTW is there a Mac forum you could ask?  You might get a better / quicker response.  Anyway, good luck with it.   ;)

I have very little experience with Macs but someone else who does will probably come along shortly.  Meanwhile, this  might help get you started.
Software & Applications / format a seagate expansion drive?
« Last post by penrose1950 on Today at 09:05:25 am »
hello i am trying to find out how to format a seagate expansion drive to use on a mac with high sierra,Mac OS Extended (Journaled).please?
I will have to use my laptop using Linux as my Mac can't see the the drive.
thank you.
As I poke around in a fresh install of Ubuntu (hunting for a less irritating screen resolution) I found Remmina... might give it a look see myself...
It'd be interesting to know how they do that .. since you never have to create an 'account' in the first place ???

I ended up creating an account at both ends because the hour it took to get mom reconnected wasn't worth my sanity...

but with each reinstall of alpha-9 I had to re-authorize the device... so it seems easy enough to bypass... ... ...

Hi Rita G.,

AndyInMokum and PCNetSpec were right.  Your swap partition UUID is incorrect in fstab.  So edit fstab with

Code: [Select]
sudo xed /etc/fstab
enter your password

and when the file opens replace the lines at the bottom
# swap was on /dev/sda2 during installation
UUID=0fb55611-0d5c-424c-b4ca-98b190691850 none            swap    sw              0 

# swap was on /dev/sdb2 during installation
UUID=7d7ff30b-084d-4c6d-a07b-c816cff8d91f none            swap    sw              0

save the file reboot and it will no longer be looking for an invalid partition UUID

Regards Zeb...

As long as one terminal command isn't too much.  ;)

The easiest way would be to run this command in the terminal:

Code: [Select]
sudo xed /usr/share/applications/peppermint-thunderbird-themer.desktop

Enter your admin password when prompted.

You'll get a desktop entry file. Add this line to the bottom of the file:

Code: [Select]

Save and exit. The program will still be installed but won't show in the menu. Of course, it's still accessible through the settings panel.

As you're already reading up about the terminal, here's your chance to put your new found knowledge to use  ;).  This one is really easy too  :).   First open a terminal window with the following keystrokes:


Enter (Copy & Paste) <-------- the big give away  ;D, the command scifidude79 provided into the terminal window.  Hit enter and enter your user password.  In the text editor that opens, (Copy & Paste) the line of text scifidude79 provided beneath the last line of text in the text editor.  Save (Ctrl+s) the file and quit, (Ctrl+q) the text editor - job done  ;)

You didn't even need to type anything other than your password  ;D.  I was like you too, a little hesitant to use the terminal.  I now know how powerful and how simple it makes life.  I use it for a good 90% of my system's administration.  The terminal is power and it's your friend  ;).
