Problems installing Peppermint 4
« on: June 18, 2013, 06:35:31 am »
Just checked out the live usb version of Peppermint 4. I like it.  I have tried twice to install it via the install bitton on the main page.  When it reboots after finishing installation it goes to a startup screem which definately is not Peppermint 4 and the mouse pointer is stuck in the centre of the screen.
Any clues?

So you're installing it via the icon on the desktop of the LiveCD ?

Is this a dual boot setup ?

If this is a laptop .. what make model ?

I have tried installing from the desktop icon and from the menu on the boot scree.

Its not a dual boot.

Its a Samsung netbook 1gb ram 160hd model NC10.

Can you explain this a little better:

Quote
it goes to a startup screem which definately is not Peppermint 4

Did you attempt to keep your home folder from a previous install ?

Which install option did you use (eg. install over Peppermint 3)

Did you run the installer from the live session desktop icon .. or from the initial "Try Peppermint" screen ?
(try it from the desktop icon)

I did not try to keep my home folder.  I used the usb stick that I had been testing so that home folder may have had some changes.

As I said. I installed from the desktop icon also from the menu option when I booted from usb.

As for the screen it looks like one that you would go i to if you went into so called safe mode.

What does the screen say ?

It's not the grub boot menu is it ? (blue box on a black background)

use the tab key to select the correct field.

Or try a usb mouse for now

We'll get to the touchpad once you can log in.

Hit Ctrl+Alt+T to open a terminal.

Now try running:
Code: [Select]
sudo modprobe -r psmouse
then
Code: [Select]
sudo modprobe psmouse
