Title: Tutorial - Installing PeppermintOS Three on an Acer Aspire One AOA110L ZG5
Post by: Mark Greaves (PCNetSpec) on July 30, 2012, 11:28:00 pm
[EDIT]

There's a new tutorial for installing PeppermintOS Five here:
http://linuxforums.org.uk/index.php?topic=11987.0 (http://linuxforums.org.uk/index.php?topic=11987.0)

[END EDIT]

In this tutorial we will wipe the default OS (Linpus Lite) from the internal 8GB SSD (or hard drive in the case of the AOA150) and install PeppermintOS (Three) Linux is its place.

Why would you want to do this .. Well Linpus Lite, though small and fast is based on Fedora core 8 which is a very old Linux distribution that has been out of active development for quite some time .. so Linpus Lite doesn't receive any updates, and it is nearly impossible to get any new software to install without jumping through hoops, if at all.

PeppermintOS (Three) on the other hand is based on the MUCH more recent Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, but uses the LXDE desktop which is more like a "normal" desktop environment, and is also small and fast .. it also has the added benefit of having access to the Ubuntu software repositories, so it is VERY easy to install the latest software.

Being based on the Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (Long Term Support) release, also means it will benefit from the FULL 5 year support cycle.

If you want a quick look at what the PeppermintOS desktop will look like (by default .. obviously the appearance,wallpaper,etc. can easily be changed), see here:
http://peppermintos.com/screenshots/ (http://peppermintos.com/screenshots/)

As you can see it has a single panel at the bottom, an application menu, a system tray, and a workspace that you can put application icons (shortcuts), files, or directories on .. in fact (good or bad) it's very similar to the Windows layout.

I'm going to set out this tutorial in stages .. the first stage will tell you how to download the PeppermintOS ISO image, and how to use a Windows PC to write it to a 1GB or larger USB Stick.

The following stages will deal with installation, then some post-installation tasks to get Peppermint "just right".

These instructions may *look* complex at first glance, but take it from me it is easier than it looks :)



OK, Stage 1 ..

Downloading the PeppermintOS (Three) ISO image (to a Windows PC) and writing it to the USB stick

The following instructions are for creating a PeppermintOS Three LiveUSB stick using a Windows PC .. if you need instructions for creating one on a Linux PC, let me know.

On your Windows PC, download the last PeppermintOS (Three) 32bit official respin ISO image from my server:
http://pcnetspec.co.uk/peppermint3/Peppermint-3-20121105-i386.iso (http://pcnetspec.co.uk/peppermint3/Peppermint-3-20121105-i386.iso)
(MD5 Checksum = 05157d6dbd4ab7953870e9ee308a70a5)
or you can download an earlier version directly from the Peppermint website here:
http://peppermintos.com/previous/ (http://peppermintos.com/previous/)

Once you've got the ISO image .. download Universal USB Installer (version 1.9.0.5 or higher) from here:
http://www.pendrivelinux.com/universal-usb-installer-easy-as-1-2-3/ (http://www.pendrivelinux.com/universal-usb-installer-easy-as-1-2-3/)

Start Universal USB Installer, and at ..

Step 1 .. In the drop down list, select PeppermintOS (Three)
Step 2  .. point it at the ISO image you downloaded
Step 3 .. Choose your (already plugged in >= 1GB) USB stick .. probably best to let it format it too, so backup its contents first.
Step 4 .. Set the slider to the largest persistence file it will allow you.. so you can save changes. (if you want to test drive it first)


Heres a pic of the Universal USB Installer interface

(http://linuxforums.org.uk/MGalleryItem.php?id=1510)

Click Create .. and wait till it's done .. it will take a while, and *may* appear to have stopped .. but just wait till it says it's "Done" .. as in the following pic

Pic of Universal USB Installer .. Installing to USB Stick

(http://linuxforums.org.uk/MGalleryItem.php?id=1509)

Once the LiveUSB has been created, click Close, plug it into your AA1, then turn ON your AA1 .. as soon as you see the first screen (Acer Empowering People), hit the F12 key to access the boot device selection screen .. and select the USB HDD as the drive to boot from and hit Enter to boot.

When asked, select "Try Peppermint" not "Install Peppermint"

Be aware .. running from a USB stick will be quite a bit slower that running it from the internal SSD after installation, so don't draw any conclusions about speed at this point ;)

I *can* tell you that once installed, it takes slightly longer to boot than Linpus Lite .. but once booted it loads/runs applications just as quickly .. and has access to all the latest software.

Once you've got to a working desktop, you can either test drive Peppermint from the USB stick .. or you can just click the "Install Peppermint" icon that will be on the desktop .. but we'll get to that in a bit :)

Stage 2 ..

Using the LiveUSB you just created to install PeppermintOS (Three) to the internal SSD (or HDD)

[EDIT]

Make sure you have NO SD cards inserted during the Peppermint install .. they may interfere with the installation procedure

[END EDIT]

This part is very easy .. Plug the LiveUSB into your AA1, then turn ON your AA1 .. as soon as you see the first screen (Acer Empowering People), hit the F12 key to access the boot device selection screen .. and select the USB stick as the drive to boot from and hit Enter to boot.

When asked, select "Try Peppermint" not "Install Peppermint"

When you get to the desktop .. Click the Install Peppermint icon on the desktop, and follow the onscreen prompts to install Peppermint

If you have your netbook connected to your router by an ethernet cable (or have enabled wireless from the Live desktop), when asked by the installer, put ticks in the boxes to

Install extra software
and
Install updates during installation

Otherwise leave them unticked.

When you get to the Allocate drive space part of the installer, allow it to replace Fedora release8 (werewolf) and use the whole drive.

When you get to the part where it ask you for a username and password etc .. here's a few hints -

You will be asked for things like -

Name:
Computername:
Username:
Password:
Re-Enter Password:

The Computername field will probably be autofilled for you after you've entered your name .. but you can change it.

Make sure the Username is all lower case, and no spaces

Here's what I used for MY AA1

Quote
Name: Mark Greaves
Computername: mark-AA1
Username: mark
Password: whatever_you_want
Re-Enter Password: whatever_you_want (again)

so keep the username short and lower case (and no spaces)

Password rules .. I think it needs to be at least 6 digits and at least one number .. and remember, passwords ARE case sensitive.

It may be a good idea to write down what you enter here, so you don't forget them .. you WILL need at least the Username and Password later on, so don't forget them.

When asked if you want to enable "Auto Login" (Login Automatically) .. tick that option if you DON'T want to have to enter your username and password at each boot.

Stage 3 ..

Entering your Wireless key

When the installation has finished and you have rebooted to the internal SSD (or HDD) ..

Whilst on the desktop ..

Click the NetworkManager icon (it looks like little steps, or two unplugged cables in the system tray, by the clock) on the bottom panel .. you should be presented with a list of available wireless networks.

Click YOUR network, and you will be given a message about "System Policy preventing changes" asking for your password .. this dialog box expects your PEPPERMINT password (NOT your wireless key), so enter it and hit "Authenticate"

you should NOW be prompted for the WEP or WPA(2) key.

Enter your key, and click Connect.

That's it.. you're connected :)

Stage 4 ..

Enabling the extra software repositories

In the menu, go to System Tools > Synaptic Package Manager, enter your password, when Synaptic starts -

Go to Settings > Repositories .. when a new window opens -

On the "Peppermint Software" tab, make sure ALL 4 boxes are ticked.

On the "Other Software" tab, make sure all boxes are ticked EXCEPT the cdrom:[Peppermint 3_Three_ - Release i386 (20120423)]/ precise

Click Close

Click the Reload button on the Synaptic toolbar.

Close Synaptic.

(It's IMPORTANT that you close Synaptic, or the commands in the next stage won't run)

Stage 5 ..

Run a System Update

Open a terminal by hitting these 3 keys at the same time Ctrl+Alt+T

When the terminal opens, enter:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get update
and hit the Enter key .. you will be prompted for your password, so enter your password and hit Enter again.

Be aware .. when entering your password into a terminal, nothing will get echoed to screen (not even ******) but it is going in .. also remember Linux commands (and your password) ARE  case sensitive.

When that command completes, and leaves you back at an $ prompt, (still in the terminal) run:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get upgrade
to pull in any software updates.

Post by: Mark Greaves (PCNetSpec) on July 31, 2012, 12:02:55 am
Stage 6 ..

Installing the extra software (part one).

OK, we're going to install the extra software in 2 stages .. the first stage to install most of the software .. but we'll leave out lubuntu-restricted-extras because this package also installs the ttf-mscorefonts-installer which always causes problems with it's license acceptance window.
(you WILL want this package, because it installs support for mp3, flash etc. but we'll do it in a min)

In the menu, go to Accessories > Terminal

When the terminal opens, enter:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get update
hit enter and your password when asked .. when that command finishes, enter:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install firefox vlc libreoffice-calc libreoffice-writer thunderbird apt-xapian-index skype pidgin && sudo update-apt-xapian-index
hit enter, and your password if/when asked .. and if it prompts you for a y/n, hit y and enter.

.
Title: Re: Tutorial - Installing PeppermintOS Three on an Acer Aspire One AOA110L ZG5
Post by: Mark Greaves (PCNetSpec) on July 31, 2012, 12:11:35 am
Stage 7 ..

Installing the extra software (part two)

Open a terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T) and run:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install ttf-mscorefonts-installer
at some point the terminal will turn blue telling you you need to accept a license, with <ok> at the bottom ..
hit the Tab key so the <ok> is highlighted red .. hit the Enter key ..
the next screen will have <yes> <no>, again hit the Tab key so/until <yes> is highlighted red .. and hit the Enter key.

It will now install.

Once ttf-mscorefonts-installer has finished installing .. still in the terminal run:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install lubuntu-restricted-extras ubuntu-restricted-extras
Now lubuntu-restricted-extras should install without issue because the license for ttf-mscorefonts-installer has already been accepted.



Java -

If you're going to NEED Java support (see warning below), you may want to install the openjdk-7-jre and icedtea-7-plugin .. so back in the terminal, run:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install openjdk-7-jre icedtea-7-plugin
WARNING .. there is a known security vulnerability in Java 6 and 7 that can allow someone that exploits it to break out of the java sandbox .. this vulnerability will not be fixed until Feb 2013 at the earliest (if at all), so if you don't need Java don't install it .. if you do, disable the icedtea plugin in your web browser and only ever enable it for websites that require java.

[Update]

Thanks to dsplayname (on the Peppermint forum) if you'd prefer to try the Oracle Java 8 (JDK8 nad JRE8) you can follow the instructions on this webpage:
http://www.webupd8.org/2012/09/install-oracle-java-8-in-ubuntu-via-ppa.html (http://www.webupd8.org/2012/09/install-oracle-java-8-in-ubuntu-via-ppa.html)
I haven't tested this, but it should work.

Stage 8 ..

Fixing the right-hand SD card reader.

Open a terminal and enter these 2 commands:
Code: [Select]
sudo cp /etc/default/grub /etc/default/grub.bak
(hit enter, and your password when asked)

then run:
Code: [Select]
sudo gedit /etc/default/grub
(hit enter, and your password if asked)

When gedit opens, look for the line:
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash"

and change it to:
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash pciehp.pciehp_force=1"

(enlarged only to make reading easier, so you don't mix up i and l)

Visually check the edit to make sure there are no spaces where there shouldn't be, then SAVE the file, and exit gedit.
(be sure to visually check before saving, some people are reporting that when they copy/paste the above a space is appearing in pciehp_force between _ and f)

Back in the terminal, run:
Code: [Select]
sudo update-grub
(hit enter, and your password if asked)

WARNING - Be 100% sure you enter the next command correctly before hitting enter (probably best to copy/paste AND visually check).

When that command finishes, and leaves you back at a prompt, enter:
Code: [Select]
sudo sh -c 'echo acpiphp >> /etc/modules'
(hit enter, and your password if asked)

Now reboot, and check if the right-hand SD card reader works.

Stage 9 ..

Fixing the Microphone for Skype.

First you need to change a setting in Skype .. so go to:-

menu>Internet>Skype

When Skype starts, login .. then when Skype is running and you're logged in .. right-click the Skype icon in the system tray (bottom right, by the clock) and select:-

Options>Sound Devices and make SURE the -

Allow Skype to control my mixer levels

option is NOT ticked .. click the "Apply" button .. now quit Skype by right-clicking the Skype icon in the system tray (by the clock) and selecting "Quit".

Now you need to install pulse audio and adjust the "Capture" volume levels, so on the bottom panel, go to menu>Accessories>Terminal

When the terminal opens enter:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install pulseaudio pulseaudio-utils pavucontrol
and hit enter.
then enter:
Code: [Select]
alsamixer
and hit enter.

The terminal will change to a mixer.

Hit F4 to change to the Capture devices.

Hit the right arrow key .. so Capture is light in red (at the bottom).

Hit the Q key till the left volume is at 75% .. the Z key will lower if you go too far.

Hit the C key till the right volume is at 0% .. the E key will raise it, but you want it on zero

Close the terminal

Fire up Skype again and test the mic.

Stage 10 ..

Fixing the CPU fan (stopping it from running all the time)

ONLY APPLY THIS FIX IF YOUR FAN IS ON CONSTANTLY

Open a terminal and enter the following commands:
Code: [Select]
sudo su
then
Code: [Select]
echo "options acerhdf interval=5 fanon=60000 fanoff=55000 kernelmode=1" >> /etc/modprobe.d/local.conf
then
Code: [Select]
exit
then
Code: [Select]
sudo modprobe -r acerhdf
then
Code: [Select]
sudo modprobe acerhdf

The fan should now work properly, and only come on when the temperature reaches 60C, and go off again when it's dropped to 55C.

You can check the temperature by running the following command in a terminal:
Code: [Select]
cat /sys/class/thermal/thermal_zone0/temp

the temperature will be returned  in this format -
60000 = 60C
55000 = 55C
46000 = 46C
etc.

If you have to apply this fix .. It would be a good idea to keep an eye on the temperature for a short while, just to check the fan does come on when the temperature reaches 60C .. be aware, running the command to check the temperature takes a single reading, so you will have to run it again to get another reading.

Stage 11 (optional) ..

Extending battery life by installing the TLP power management application

This is an optional install, but I recommend it for the Acer Aspire One, as when you switch from mains power to battery power, TLP will switch your CPU into power saving mode unless the CPU is under load, which will make your battery last longer.

Open a terminal and run:
Code: [Select]
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:linrunner/tlp
then
Code: [Select]
sudo apt update
then
Code: [Select]
sudo apt install tlp tlp-rdw smartmontools ethtool
then start tlp with:
Code: [Select]
sudo tlp start
and check it's running with:
Code: [Select]
sudo tlp-stat | grep "TLP power save"

As long as (after a reboot) that last command still returns:-

TLP power save = enabled

you're good to go ..



It might now be a good idea to go to -

menu > System Tools > Software Updater

and see if it offers you any updates to install.

Then that's it, you're done with this tutorial .. pat yourself on the back and enjoy Peppermint Three :)

Hi Mark, thanks so much for this tutorial. I was fed up of linpus lite and after following your tutorial for updating firefox I thought I'd give peppermint a try.

Unfortunately I have already hit a snag. I have created the USB and started the aa1. However when I get to the first peppermint screen asking to install or try peppermint the computer freezes. I have tried it a few times and if I push any buttons the thing just stops. I then tried redoing the USB stick, but this time when I boot it doesn't even go to the peppermint screen. It freezes on a black screen with "copyright peter anvin et el..." and won't go any further.

The USB stick is only 1 gig, is this the problem?

Thanks in advance.

Post by: Mark Greaves (PCNetSpec) on August 27, 2012, 03:33:24 pm
If this is an Acer Aspire One .. yes it's highly likely to be the USB stick in combination with the AA1.

Easiest check seems to be ..

With the USB stick inserted, turn on the AA1, and as you see the "Acer Empowering People" logo screen, hit F12 to bring up the Boot device selection screen.

Is your USB stick listed as a:-

USB HDD (Hard Disk Drive)

or a

USB FDD (Floppy Disk Drive)

If it's listed as a USB FDD .. you'll need to use a different USB stick, as the AA1 can be choosy about USB sticks .. someone else mentioned they need to be 2GB + (I'm not 100% sure this is the case).

It may be worth trying formatting the USB stick as FAT32 or FAT and see if that makes a difference, or try using a different LiveUSB creator (which has worked for some people), such as:-

Linux Live USB Creator
http://www.linuxliveusb.com/en/download (http://www.linuxliveusb.com/en/download)

or

Unetbootin

Hi Mark,

I am a Linux Virgin and have just got this up and running on a colleagues Aspire One, thank you for taking the time out to produce this invaluable tutorial it has certainly made installing this OS a doddle.

You should get a Knighthood for services to the newbie Linux community....  :D

Hi Mark, finally! Just managed to switch OS to Peppermint, already loving it!
Just 2 questions (and here we start, I hear you sigh...): How do I see the memory status of ssd and left sd card (not what's in it, but the free/used memory).
Also, there are quite few commands to run for the optimal setup (skype, fan, etc), I'd like to save everything as it is now to save me from having to do it again in future. Is there a good program to do a full backup of the system on a usb drive? Can I use the directions you gave me long time ago on how to do it for the Linpus (don't know where they are, have to search through the topics now)?
Also, the Fn commands are working for the brightness, but not for the volume (no icon coming up), is it normal?
Thanks in advance, Mark, you're the greatest, as usual!!!

Hi andrea,

Sorry for jumping in (I hope Mark doesn't mind!)

To see a list of drive space for all mounted drives you can run;

Code: [Select]
df -h

This will show total size, amount used and what's available.

As for doing a backup there a number of ways of doing this.  I recommend CloneZilla (http://clonezilla.org).  The easiest way is to use their Live CD/DVD (http://clonezilla.org/downloads.php) or a system which includes CloneZilla, such as partedmagic (http://partedmagic.com/doku.php).

Another option is to use the 'dd' command.  With this you can either create a clone of your hard drive by running;

Code: [Select]
dd if=dev/sda of=/dev/sdb

'if' and 'of' are the input and output variables with hard drive 'sda' being cloned to hard drive 'sdb'.  You must ensure that the output hard drive, in this case 'sdb', is either the same or larger in capacity.  You can't clone a 40GB drive onto a 20GB drive.

You can also use 'dd' to create an image of your drive by running;

Code: [Select]
dd if=/dev/sda of=~/disk1.img

You can then compress the image using your favourite compression, ie gzip, bzip.

This saves space but will take a long time, varying on the size of hard drive.

To restore from an image, after uncompressing, run;

Code: [Select]
dd if=disk1.img of=/dev/sda

If you don't fancy making a complete copy of your OS you can make a backup list of all your installed packages.  This way on a clean install you can run the list through your package manager and it will install all the applications.

To create the backup run;

Code: [Select]
dpkg -get-selections > installed-software.log

And then to restore on a new system run;

Code: [Select]
dpkg -set-selections < installed.software.log

apt-get dselect-upgrade

I hope this helps!  Any problems let us know.

Thank you, Glitch, much appreciated, and nice to 'meet' you, so to speak. Hope I won't drive you mad with my Linux misadventures as I did with Mark, lol.
I used the "df -h" command, it's all good. It's there a command to see the ram available (I fitted an extra 1GB ram, just curious to see if peppermint is seeing it)?
Also, I mentioned the volume controls (Fn key + arrows), for some reason the brightness icon/meter shows up, but the volume ones don't. Any reason why, or command to make it work? Thanks a lot, and all the best.

OK ..

Free space on SSD and SDcard - When you open the file manager (menu>File Manager), the  free space on the SSD will be displayed at the bottom of the file manager window in this format:-
Free space: 2.2GB(Total: 6.4GB)

Now still in the file manager, click on your SDcard in the left hand panel (so you can see it's contents) .. the free space of the SDcard should now be at the bottom.


Saving to USB - the only way I can think of to do this would be to use something like Clonezilla to clone the SSD to an image on the USB stick .. but as this would entail having 2 USB sticks (one for the image, and one for use as a bootable Clonezilla LiveUSB), then creating the image, then when you need to reinstall, booting to the Clonezilla LiveUSB, and reinstalling from the image .. I'm not sure it would save you much time and effort.

The Fn + Up/Down arrow keys *should* work for volume ??? .. nothing is displayed to screen, but the volume should go up/down.
(use the volume panel applet to set the volume to 100% .. then hit Fn+down arrow .. now check the volume slider again .. it should have gone down)
If your problem is .. the volume doesn't seem to go loud enough .. let me know and I'll post instructions to install pulsaudio and pavucontrol, where you can increase the playback level.

OK ..

Free space on SSD and SDcard - When you open the file manager (menu>File Manager), the  free space on the SSD will be displayed at the bottom of the file manager window in this format:-
Free space: 2.2GB(Total: 6.4GB)

How embarrassing... I actually forgot about just doing that!  Shows how much I use my file manager!  *facepalm*

@andrea - Nice to 'meet' you too.  Glad I could help!

@ glitch

Heh .. I also immediately started thinking of command line options, and had typed up a response, then suddenly remembered that :)



@ andrea987

Can I add something to glitch's response .. if you decide to use dd from the command line, be VERY careful with the syntax .. if for example you type if/of (input_file/output_file) in the wrong place it will happily destroy the data on your SSD .. take it from one who knows ;) .. dd is a very powerful and very handy command line tool, but is also VERY unforgiving if you have a brain laps whilst entering the command.

Though it must also be said, that Clonezilla probably uses the dd command in the background .. so again if you select the wrong input and output locations it probably will destroy it too .. but it gives you more hints, such as drive sizes etc. and asks you to check your entries multiple times (giving you a chance to correct any mistakes) .. dd just does what you told it to do without question.

There's a reason "dd" is often referred to as an acronym for "Data Destroyer" ;)

Thank you guys, is great having 2 experts on the case! Yay, ram is recognised no problem, don't know if it makes a difference, though.
I thought of using clonezilla, but the process you described, Mark, does really look much more of an effort than just starting afresh. I might keep your instructions handy, and hope I won't need them again.
Yes, volume does go up/down pressing fn/arrows but for some reason icon doesn't come up...strange. One problem with the volume, though, is with Skype, even after following your instructions about the mic, it goes off every now and then. Not just the mic, speakers too! Any ideas why?
And I noticed that battery goes down much quicker than with Linpus, is it due to the slightly larger size of the OS?
Sorry for the trouble and thanks again!!!

Extra memory, will make a difference when you have multiple applications open :)



Skype .. I don't use it, but you could try installing pulseaudio and see if that helps:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install pulseaudio pulseaudio-utils pavucontrol
then REBOOT, and test skype.

You *may* need to go into Skype's Options>Sound Devices and change the settings to "Pulse Audio server (local)"



Battery .. have you installed the Jupiter power manager, and are you manually checking it's switching to Performance>Power Saving when you remove the power lead ?

And apart from more modern or better security, what is the difference or advantage with PP3 vs PP2? Is it possible PP2 works better with an old clunker like the AA1?
Seems to me there were alot less steps in the installation of 3, did they clean up issues w the AA1?

Post by: Mark Greaves (PCNetSpec) on September 22, 2012, 09:28:51 am
There's no real benefit to PM3 over PM2 other than support for Ubuntu 11.04 (so therefore PM2) will end in October, so there will be no updates after that .. PM3 on the other hand is based on Ubuntu 12.04 (Long Term Support version) so will receive updates for everything except the Peppermint specific stuff for a full 5 years.
(I can feel a question coming after that last bit ;) )

The PM3 tutorial was slightly shorter because auto login is now offered during the installation rather thaan having to be applied afterwards, there may have been a couple of other things that were easier in PM3 too, I can't remember.

As to which "works better" there's little in it .. I think PM3 is slightly heavier on system resources (probably due to the switch to gtk3) but if it is, it's by such a small amount that it's not noticable .. indeed after removing bluetooth and the mint updater (which I replaced with the  Ubuntu one) PM3 was actually slightly lighter on RAM at bootup .. as I said, there's little in it, but nor is there any need to rush into a reinstall .. PM2 updates will stop in October, but it will be some time before it becomes outdated enough that things stop working, there are a LOT of people still using Peppermint One :)

Move to Peppermint Three if/when you're ready.

Well, the LT support is a big deal. But there is there is a Mint updater- can't Ubuntu repositories just be added to that? Seems losing PM specific updates wouldn't be healthy.
If PM is so light, might put it on my dying laptop. What percent of resources does it use compared to Ubuntu 10.4? One thing you talked about was writing temp files to RAM-
 might that avoid these horrible write delays I have sometimes (also long waits till get "unresponsive script" error. And is that something you must specify on installation?

OK, one part at a time ..

Quote

Not sure what you mean by that .. The Mint Updater (mintupdate) is already the default updater in Peppermint Three, and the Ubuntu 12.04 repos are already in the sources.list .. personally I've swaped that for the Ubuntu updater, but there's no real need, they both just use the repos that are defined in the sources.list file.

Quote
Seems losing PM specific updates wouldn't be healthy

Nor is it a major problem .. if you check what Peppermint gets from the Peppermint specific repo, it aint much, stuff like icons, goffice, gimp3, mintupdate (which I swap out anyway) and a few other things .. well they will no longer get updates .. but everything else (ie.99.9% of the OS) will get updates for the full 5 years, as it comes from the Ubuntu repos not the Peppermint one.

Think of the Peppermint specific repo as containg just a few "additions" to the Ubuntu repos .. those "additions" will stop getting updated after a year, but they should still continue to work .. meanwhile the other 99.9% of your OS and software wil continue to be updated for 5 years.

Quote
If PM is so light, might put it on my dying laptop. What percent of resources does it use compared to Ubuntu 10.4?

Dunno exactly .. I can't remember what Ubuntu 10.04 used, but Peppermint 3 will be lighter for sure as most of the "weight" of a desktop distro comes from the desktop environment, and LXDE is lighter than the full Gnome, be that Gnome 2 or 3.

Quote
One thing you talked about was writing temp files to RAM-
 might that avoid these horrible write delays I have sometimes (also long waits till get "unresponsive script" error. And is that something you must specify on installation?

This is a bit harder to get a handle on ..

If most of your write delays occur whilst you're browsing the web, then they *may* be being caused by writes to the web cache .. so mounting /tmp in a tmpfs ramdrive, then making your browser write its cache to /tmp probably would help

The downside is you'll have less RAM available for other tasks .. so if your amount of RAM is already bordering on needing to swap out to the swap partition, it will even more .. kind of nullifying any gains.

So a ramdrive isn't going to help unless you have plenty of RAM to spare .. I wouldn't bother messing with ramdrives with the AA1's default 512MB RAM.

Easiest solution would be to get a better SSD and/or more RAM

In answer to the last part .. you can set up the tmpfs and mount /tmp to it AFTER installation .. so I guess the answer is NO, it doesn't NEED to be set up during installation.

Many thanks Mark from a grateful AAO ZG5 user who needed an alternative to Ubuntu after maverick expired, one of the first things I did was get rid of linpus for ubuntu and it took months to get it totally right on jaunty with various bugs.  The prospects of upgrading to a unity desktop which I couldn't disable easily as I did with Meerkat meant my old NetBook was gathering dust until I saw this thread.

All setup and working fine in about an hour, thanks to you there's life in the old NetBook dog yet.

One good turn deserves another I say!

It might have been rather quicker than many not only from my past experience seeing all the very familiar terminal commands with jaunty, koala and maverick but its got 1.5 gb ram and the super talent 32gb SSD upgrade.  I did have some problems with data corruption with the upgraded drive which meant I had to zero to fix (Bug 574462: udisks-probe-ata-smart causes HSM violations) but I did get an email a while back saying it was fixed in the kernel finally (after almost two years!)

If I get any more issues I know where to go first.

Cheers again and I'll send this link out to a couple of friends who are ZG5 owners.

Yeh, I think it's time I upgraded the SSD (default one being very slow), RAM is already maxed.

A lot of people have said the super Talent SSD's are quicker and don't suffer the write delays that freeze the AA1 for a few seconds occasionally .. so I've been planning it for a while, though I was also toying with the idea of a 1.8" ZIF PATA (IDE) hard drive (as used in the early iPods etc.), but I prefer the SSD route for a netbook.

Yup you're more than welcome to bring issues/info here, the more the merrier, so pass that on :)

[EDIT]

I'd be interested to know if after using Peppermint for a while, you'd let us know if your Super Talent SSD/Peppermint Three suffers from the occasional freeze for a few seconds (where that SSD activity light is permanently on) .. any chance you can let us know ?

[EDIT 2]

Interesting bug report .. I think I'll have a look at hdparm and SMART probing and see if they're still relevant to the occasional short freeze (or if it's just the standard SSD as I suspected) .. cheers for that :)

Don't get me wrong, the freezes aren't show stoppers, it just seems that for a few seconds every now and again there s some serious I/O occurring on the SSD .. up till now I'd just considered it the fault of the default SSD being known to be slow .. but you've got me thinking ???

I don't have to wait to tell you those hangs you get with the original SSD are history with the super talent drive, I didn't experience it with any of the Ubuntu distros when I threw the stock drive out on Jaunty and I don't expect it to happen with this either.  It was dead simple to install as its designed specifically for the AAO so no fiddling around with ZIF's inside.  It made it so quick that win 7 32 bit was actually useable though in comparison Ubuntu ran like a quad core Xeon so it didn't stay on very long!

If I run into any problems ill be back..

No need to look - that bug was purely an issue when I upgraded the SSD, but in the bug thread before they patched the kernel there were a few workarounds which seemed to stop it trashing the drive any more, though I'd get the occasional fsck at boot.

I wouldn't bother trying to attempt to try and alleviate the problems with the original SSD as its the hardware itself that's the problem.  The words Polish and turd spring to mind  ;)

So 6 one hundredths of a second in it :) .. I'm sure if he removed the useless(on the AA1) blueman/bluez stuff, and the mint updater, Peppermint would boot quicker ;)
(also if he booted bare Openbox rather than LXDE, which is also possible)

That said, who cares .. they're both well suited and quick distros, but IMHO Peppermint is better suited for *most* users .. but that's just an opinion, and based on only a cursory look at Archbang, or #! for that matter.

I'm finding it amusing that you boasted about 6/100 sec .. did you really just do that ? :P
(I'm also wondering how you both timed it to that degree of accuracy ? .. and what constitutes a fully loaded desktop ?)

6/100 sec .. Wow .. I'm going to have to swap distros now  <--- Sarcasm, in case you missed it ;)

Far from it, the point was that this time (taken by a stopwatch which I use in swimming events) is using the old (SLOW) 8gb SSD.
By the way from pressing the power button to the login box is 22.32 sec and 5.92 sec to desktop. Just sayin...

Ahh .. OK, when I say "slow", I'm not necessarily saying the standard SSD is slow at booting/seeking/consecutive reads .. it seems to be "writes" (or where it's doing both) where there's a bottleneck (which may or may not be down to the SSD or kernel, or more likely both), but I'm not 100% sure where the problem lies.

"Slow" was probably the wrong term to use, and I was probably being overly general .. Since owning the AA1, I've never seen it freeze during boot, just occasionally it seems to get "busy" with I/O during normal operation ;)

All I know is I've read the problem disappears with the Super Talent SSD's, or 1.8" HDD's

So there's definitely a bottleneck somewhere with the default SSD, but not apparently at booting .. maybe firmware .. you may find this interesting:
http://metal03326.blogspot.co.uk/2012/04/samsung-p-ssd1800-firmware-update.html (http://metal03326.blogspot.co.uk/2012/04/samsung-p-ssd1800-firmware-update.html)

DISCLAIMER - I have NOT tested that firmware update, so anyone that tries it does so AT YOUR OWN RISK .. I am just raising it as a point of interest.

Can't feel any rain here - when I got jaunty very optimised for the AA1 it was under 25 secs and the super talent shaved another 6 seconds off that on ext2 compared to the stock part.  Having used both SSD's in an AA1 the difference in performance is huge between the two and I can quite happily take the performance hit of journaling. Ext4 enabled on the Samsung on the other hand is quite an experience  :D

Can you write a tutorial for writing the temp and FFcache files to RAM (maybe in Linpus too, if possible). I have 1.5 meg RAM- that shouldn't be a problem,
but I have 1 minute write delays sometimes. What happens if you run the battery dead with that,
and is there a way to back it up on SSD every few minutes, if it can't find it on RAM? What is the "noatimes" (sp) option. With this crummy SSD, think shutting off journaling
is good idea (that is, like constantly saving changes or temp files?) .

Lastly, is there a way to force PM3 to integrate the left SD and SSD folders like the AA1 Linpus. Sorry, but it's important to me. Got C+D drives on laptop,  same folders on 2 external HD + 2 jumpdrives;
 FOLDERS: downloads, articles, docs, website, audio, video, music copied EVERYWHERE, so I hate searching for files- with an SSD, int. SD, ext flash.. that's
 20 folders to look for something.  Since I accidentally popped the SD while on, it acts differently, always showing the SD card, but showing all files on home folders,
even if it's really on the SD. By default, the download folder is on SD, and everything goes there even if I choose another home one.

And is there any other hardware that doesn't work in PM3? Oh, and is there a persistent boot USB burner that works in Ubuntu? Don't think my Windows is clean anymore.

Hello Mark. I installed Peppermint 3 on my aspire one A110AB N270 1024 16GB flash in the same way as you describe but have a problem. The wireless network doesnt work. First it did find various networks and after I selected the right one asked for security password. This it didnt however accept (many attempts). If I click the network icon in the system tray I see "wireless disabled by hardware switch". Using the switch also does not help (no light showing). Yesterday when trying out Mint same problem. Back to Linpus all OK. Now with Peppermint again no wireless. Can you help?
Thanks

@ carthers

Try this .. I once had my wireless appear to be switched off .. first turn off the AA1, remove the battery and power lead, press the power button to discharge any capacitors .. now reattach the battery and power lead, and restart the AA1.

Now right-click the NetworkManager icon in the system tray (by the clock) and make sure "Enable Wireless" is ticked.

If that doesn't bring it back to life ..  can you explain where you saw the message "wireless disabled by hardware switch" ?

Can you also open a terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T) and send the output from:

sudo lshw -C network
and
Code: [Select]
ifconfig
and

and

Which things that need to be done during the install ? .. besides the possible use of ext2 there isn't anything (that immediately spring to mind).

I don't want to get into an argument about it, but this tutorial is what it is .. it's for people that want to follow it, and support for issues raised by following the tutorial .. ANYTHING else should be in a separate topic.

It was never my intention for this topic to be all encompassing .. just a simple tutorial.

If you want to start another topic about a more complex install .. fine .. but this isn't the place for it.

Really I should have asked a few people to have posted their questions to another topic .. I'm not picking on you in particular, I've just decided I need to draw the line now before the topic gets too messy ;)

Hi konto, and welcome to the forum :)

I'm suspecting it would work with ANY distro, as completely discharching any power from the motherboard appears to bring the system back up with the wireless card enabled (which is it's default behaviour) .. I'm wondering if this is down to the BIOS version.

That said, IMHO the FULL Mint is to "heavy" for the AA1 .. unless of course you've upgraded the RAM from 512MB.

Getting mobile connection to work

Some of 3G USB mobile devices (dongles) give a hard time while connecting to network. In my case it was modem Huawei  E220. Simply, it didnt want to connect at all. The Network Manager properly showed  the correct mobile network but failed to connect.

Apparently, Linux reads some usb modems simply as storage devices and needs some help to see it as a modem. A command usb-modeswitch will do the job. As the name indicates it switches a device from storage mode to modem mode. You also need wvdialconf and wvdial to accomplish the set up. All of them should reside in your previously downloaded on line repositories – see the installation process. You can check if you got them in Synaptic Package Manager>Search> and type in the commands. Then go to Menu and Run the following commands;

1. usb-modeswitch
2. wvdialconf
3. wvdial

It worked for me.

(ASIDE: I do sympathise, actually.  Thunderbird has got awfully clever for it's own boots and I tend to use Seamonkey on my Mac. I do like Lightning Calender though - brilliant.  Shame Mozilla ditched it as the separate Sunbird app - the Lightning add-on doesn't seem to work as well on Seamonkey as on Thunderbird.)

The last time my Laptop Man actually enjoyed using a computer, rather than regarding it as a necessary evil, was when he had a Mac at work some years ago.  If there are Linux apps that look and behave like Mac apps then I might be able to get out of being his unofficial PA and tame geek a bit more often :-)

It's possible to get Peppermint (or any other Linux) to have a VERY similar "look and feel" to OS X if that's what you want.

You can move the bottom panel to the top .. and install a dock at the bottom (such as docky or cairo-dock)

As in this pic that I've just grabbed from the Peppermint forum

As for Applications .. which Mac applications are you taking about ?

Just reinstalling - but before I did so, I found a dock app in the Software Manager called AWN, noticed it mentioned here:

http://www.wikihow.com/Install-and-Configure-Linux-Mint (http://www.wikihow.com/Install-and-Configure-Linux-Mint)

I didn't get as far as setting it up.

It was the inclusion of Thunderbird in the list of installs that got me thinking about this, ie. that a Mac lookee-likee desktop and apps, eg. Mail, might help him to feel like he was back in his comfort zone.

He uses the Yahoo Mail web interface (yukk!) at the moment for a personal account and I have set it up so he also receives emails from a "business" account too (can't recall if that was by pop or forwarding without checking).  I have tidied it up as much as possible with "smart folders" and filters but it is still not very user-friendly.  Gmail is out of the question in terms of the web mail interface as he likes it even less than Yahoo.

I think maybe I should just have a look at the email apps that come with Peppermint to see if any take his fancy.

Possibly a Mac-type desktop might be enough to make him feel at home to begin with.

I found a couple of other apps that will be familiar - VLC in your list of installs and Audacity - so this is all heading in the right direction :-)

I've never tried AWN .. and Cairo Dock is probably the closest to the OS X dock .. see the screenshots here:
http://glx-dock.org/ (http://glx-dock.org/)
(yes I know it says glx-dock .. but I think they've recently changed the name .. it's listed as cairo-dock in the Synaptic package manager (and Software Manager) in Peppermint.

There are also a load of plugins for it .. so you might also want to install cairo-dock-plug-ins

There are a few tweaks that need to be done in Peppermint before Cairo Dock will work properly .. so gimme a shout when you're ready

I only signed up to say thank you, my ZG5 A110 was unusable ever since I bought it, it came with Windows XP (what where they thinking??). I followed your instructions and everything works great. Greetings from Mexico!

Hi SenZen, and welcome to the  forum :)

Glad to hear it helped revive your AA1 :)

Yeh, I've tried an AA1 with XP (not my doing) and it was like "swimming in honey" .. only less sweet.

Another BIG thank you to Mark Greaves for all the tutorials and personal help that made it possible to install Peppermint on a HiGrade VA250 - and also with all the help getting the right USB wifi adapter and codes to connect successfully with a Netgear DG834GT router. 

Definitely well-deserving of the "Hero" status - added a couple of "Karma points" with that "applaud" button under your avatar:-)

Recently reinstalled P3 after the original install began refusing Pword.
This install seems largely Ok - but I got this message (re; below) when  authenticating the Syn Packet Man.trying to apply your Jupiter fix (the battery was not holding charge even when shutdown). Is there a simple answer?...and it will have to be simple!....

E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem.
E: _cache->open() failed, please report.[

Stage 11 (optional) ..

Installing the Jupiter power management application

This is an optional install, but I recommend it for the Acer Aspire One, as when you switch from mains power to battery power, the Jupiter panel applet will switch your CPU into power saving mode, which will make your battery last longer.

Open a terminal and run
Code: [Select]
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/jupiter
then
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get update
then
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install jupiter

Now REBOOT (to load the application) .. you'll then see a new icon by the clock that looks like a lightening bolt .. when you unplug the mains power, this icon should change to reflect it has set the CPU to "Power Saving" mode, when you plug it back in, it should switch to "Maximum Performance" mode.

You can also switch modes manually by clicking the lightning bolt icon, and selectont the "Performance" mode.

Be aware .. with certain Acer Aspire One BIOS versions, the switching to "Power Saving" isn't 100% accurate .. so when you unplug your AA1 from the mains to run on battery for an extended period, visually check the icon has changed to "Power Saving" mode, if it hasn't, do it manually.

Have you tried running:
Code: [Select]
sudo dpkg --configure -a
then trying again?



If that doesn't clear the issue, let me know and we'll clear out the package cache, and apt lists.

Got the same error message.
 dpkg interrupted..etc.
Ran the suggested script - no success.
 Is this down to an error I made in the installation do you think? I can easily re-install. There is nothing at stake.

Post by: Mark Greaves (PCNetSpec) on December 07, 2012, 11:14:40 am
That's up to you .. but it's probably just something wrong with the PPA repository, so try this first.

Let's clear the cache/lists again .. remove the PPA, then just download the Jupiter .deb and install it manually.

Open menu>System Tools>Synaptic Package Manager

In Synaptic, go to Settings>Repositories>Other Software (tab)

Scroll down the list till you find 2 lines that start with:- http://ppa.launchpad.net/webupd8team/jupiter/ (http://ppa.launchpad.net/webupd8team/jupiter/)

Now one at a time, (ignoring the ticks) highlight those lines and Click the "Remove" button.

Once they're gone .. close Synaptic.

Open a terminal and run:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get remove --purge jupiter
(that command may fail if it's not installed, but that's fine .. just carry on below)
then
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get clean
then
Code: [Select]
sudo mv -v /var/lib/apt/lists /var/lib/apt/lists.old2
then
Code: [Select]
sudo mkdir -p /var/lib/apt/lists/partial
then
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get update

Now if there were NO errors .. run these commands:
Code: [Select]
mkdir ~/jupiter-install
then
Code: [Select]
cd ~/jupiter-install
then
Code: [Select]
wget [url]https://launchpad.net/~webupd8team/+archive/jupiter/+files/jupiter_0.1.9-1%7Ewebupd8%7E0%7Enatty_all.deb[/url]
then
Code: [Select]
sudo dpkg -i *.deb

Now just to  be sure there are still no errors, run:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get update
again .. any errors let me know

Then REBOOT to test Jupiter autostarts.

No deal - the same error message (dpkg etc.) when I submit pword to authenticate access to syn pac man....?
Title: Re: Tutorial - Installing PeppermintOS Three on an Acer Aspire One AOA110L ZG5
Post by: Mark Greaves (PCNetSpec) on December 07, 2012, 12:57:24 pm
And what happens if you NOW run:
Code: [Select]
sudo dpkg --configure -a
then
Code: [Select]
sudo rm /var/lib/apt/lists/* -vf
thene
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get update
then
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install -f
?

If that doesn't work, caan you send the full output from:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get update
and
Code: [Select]
ls -a /etc/apt/sources.list.d
and the contents of
Code: [Select]
gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

Is the Synaptic package manager open or Update manager or Software centre .. if so, close them.

Then run these 4 commands:
Code: [Select]
cd ~/jupiter-install
rm -v *.deb*
wget https://launchpad.net/~webupd8team/+archive/jupiter/+files/jupiter_0.1.9-1%7Ewebupd8%7E0%7Enatty_all.deb
sudo dpkg -i *.deb
and post the output.

OK, I think I have a handle on what went wrong now .. it wasn't an issue with the Jupiter install, it was a stuck mscorefonts install.

Now that's installed, try stage 11 again .. here's a link:

Yup should be fixed now :) ... enjoy your spaghetti.

BTW, you can delete the jupiter-install folder (and contents) in your Home folder if you like.

Can you advise how to install Open Office rather than LibreOffice onto AA1?

I may yet be stopped by wife who is getting anxious of my 'fiddling with her netbook'

Thanks

Hi Gatemarsh, and welcome to the forum :)

In stage 6, here:
http://linuxforums.org.uk/index.php?topic=10313.msg76519#msg76519 (http://linuxforums.org.uk/index.php?topic=10313.msg76519#msg76519)

You'd just use this command instead of the second command:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install firefox vlc openoffice.org-calc openoffice.org-writer thunderbird apt-xapian-index skype pidgin && sudo update-apt-xapian-index

Or have you already completed "Stage 6", and installed the LibreOffice packages ?

Also if you require more than just the Calc and Writer packages .. let me know.

That said .. there's little difference between the LibreOffice and OpenOffice user interface, but LibreOffice is being more actively developed and has better compatibility with Microsoft Office .. If I were you I'd stick with LibreOffice.

LibreOffice is a fairly recent fork of OpenOffice, so they haven't diverged too much yet .. In my (and most other peoples) opinion LibreOffice is the better of the two, and is still moving forward at a fair pace, whereas OpenOffice is dying (thanks to Oracles ineptitude, and attitude towards the developers .. who all left to start LibreOffice).

Hi Mark

Many thanks for all your help so far the tutorial has been great so far so good.

I am having problems with the wifi settings and since installing the peppermint three program my little orange light no longer comes on and offers me the option of wifi can you help please.

Roy

Post by: Mark Greaves (PCNetSpec) on December 15, 2012, 07:19:52 pm
The wifi (orange) light only comes on (flickers) when data is being exchanged with your router .. so until you set up a wireless connection it won't light up.

Can I suggest you first shut down the AA1, then whilst turned off remove the battery AND the power lead .. now press the on/off button to discharge any remaining charge in the motherboard .. now reconnect the battery and power lead and boot Peppermint.

At NO time mess with the wireless switch on the front of the AA1.

When booted, right-click the NetworkManager icon by the clock (may look like 2 cables Plugged together) .. is there an option to "Enable Wireless" .. and is it ticked ?

I have now got all my connections back as normal so that is fantastic.

just 1 other question for you if that's ok.

I have now completed the install of peppermint three and it is great far better than the old syatem I was running. The only bit i can't get to do is the power saving option that will give the bolt looking icon on the bottom bar to increase the battery life etc any ideas? and do I need any other software to get word/excel etc and also any anti virus software not sure if and what I need I currently have Avast on my home computer.

Word and Excel are Microsoft applications so won't run on Linux .. but if you followed the tutorial, you should have LibreOffice "Writer" and "Calc" installed .. they can read/write Word/Excel documents.

LibreOffice Writer and Calc are more up to date versions of the OpenOffice Writer and Calc that came with Linpus Lite .. but with better Microsoft Office compatibility

This is Linux, not Windows .. no need for antivirus/antimalware software ;)

What problem did you have with the Jupiter power manager instructions ?

OK, open a terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T) and run these 3 commands:
Code: [Select]
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/jupiter
then
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get update
then

sudo apt-get install jupiter

Any errors, copy and paste them back here.

If no errors .. reboot, and you should see the lightning icon by the system clock.

Registered to express my thanks to Mark for his excellent tutorial.  Just finished the transformation of my AA1 from Linpus to Peppermint3 following the instructions, great result.
Battery removal solved my wireless problems :)
For information to others, my Intenso 8GB USB stick would not work with any combination of formatting or USB creator (USB FDD problem).
Changed to a Dane Elec 2GB and worked first time with LinuxLive USB Creator.
This may inspire me to put Ubuntu server on another spare laptop and have a go at setting up a webserver :-\

You're more than welcome .. and thanks for taking the time to register and leave feedback.

Always nice to hear that it helped.



I wouldn't go with the "Server" edition of Ubuntu, unless you're comfortable with the Linux command line .. the server edition has no GUI desktop environment.

Use the "Desktop" edition instead .. it can do everything the server edition can do .. just slightly slower because of the added weight of the desktop environment.

I would disagree on this one. Running a webserver (once set up) would just chug along, without further intervention.
Just set up ssh and install Webmin (http://www.webmin.com/deb.html) and away you go with managing it remotely in your browser of choice (in a GUI environment)

You're righ of course .. if it's ONLY going to be used as a webserver .. and yes webmin would be the way to go for ease of admin tasks.

Really I was just drawing his attention to the fact that "server" doesn't have a GUI DE by default ;)

Appreciate the warning about the command line.
I am comfortable with the command line, but very rusty with Linux.
Using the server version would be a good learning exercise and force me to get more familiar with the commands.
I was going to go with SeZo's suggestion and use another machine for the management via SSH.

Anyway, finally playing with virtual PEP3, and it is very impressive, even as a virtual OS - faster, lighter, only 30% of CPU and 30% of RAM (1.5M), over 4 hours battery (6 cell but was down to 3 hours) on a AAO 110 ZG5. Even suspends + revives and does Internet painlessly. Can I do any of the 92megs updates of programs (FF!) onto the bootable USB- am afraid to mess up LINPUS disc?? Since there is no password, is this virtual installation insecure? I'd like to juice it + tune it up (USB stick)  to be all purpose- essentially my computer on a flash that I can use from anyones machine. That is so cool- when I was a kid, I thought there would be a point when they could store thousands of books on a sugar cube- ha ha, now you do that and almost include the computer!! I made the July version, is there any big difference with the Nov 2012 version (presumably on an installation they would  be fixed by doing the updates).

One thing I worry- it seems they have gone whole-hog with Google: online Goog Office, Chrome, Dropbox (Google buy this?) etc. Is this integral to the OS and is there any permanent spyware or can it all be shut-off?? While I use Gmail, I don't want those aggregators to steal my whole life. One can set it to not boot-up wigh Internet on?

When installing Peppermint3 on a system with XP and Ubuntu 10.4.1, can you make it use + edit the current Ubuntu bootloader, rather installing a 2nd or 3rd one, or should I just try to do that from inside Ubuntu? It does give an option to not install the bootloader when you pick "Install Alongside". Can you install it OVER Ubuntu 10.4.1 so it incorporates the data and settings, or is that asking too much. I'm tired of the defective mail, power sucking, and a few other problems on my installation.

Post by: Mark Greaves (PCNetSpec) on January 11, 2013, 02:38:09 pm
First, it not a "virtual" install .. it's a "Live" install with persistence. ;)

Quote
Can I do any of the 92megs updates of programs (FF!)

YES, you can do the updates (as long as you created the LiveUSB with persistence) .. but considering it's a "Live" USB, expect the updates to slow your PC somewhat.

Reason - A "Live" installation (with a persistence file) layers the new flles on top of the older ones .. it doesn't REPLACE the old ones like it would on a "proper" installation (non-Live).

Live installations also use more RAM .. they are also nearly impossible to troubleshoot if anything goes wrong.

Live installs are great for testing something out, but I'd do a "proper" install if you plan on using it for extended periods.
(Yes you can do a "proper install to a USB stick .. but read below first)

Something else you need to consider - USB sticks have a limited write life .. so every time you change anything on your Live install, you are cutting down the life of the USB stick.
(a "proper" install would probably wear out the USB stick even quicker, as it would have a swap partition that *may* be written to a lot)

If you need to keep Linpus Lite, you'd be MUCH better off doing a "proper" install to an external hard drive.

Quote
Since there is no password, is this virtual installation insecure?

If you have a persistence file .. then it's possibly less secure from hacking, and certainly less secure from local logins by someone else.

Quote
One thing I worry- it seems they have gone whole-hog with Google: online Goog Office, Chrome, Dropbox (Google buy this?) etc. Is this integral to the OS and is there any permanent spyware or can it all be shut-off??

There is nothing stopping you replacing the Google stuff with something else (like Firefox) .. be aware that uninstalling Chromium will also uninstall the ICE appplication, but f you don't use that it's no biggy :)

Quote
One can set it to not boot-up wigh Internet on?

The only easy way I can think of would be to  take the tick out of the "Connect Automatically" for ALL your network connections (in network manager).

Yup, that's exactly what you'd do .. install Peppermint alongside but WITHOUT installing the bootloader .. then when finished installing, boot Ubuntu and run:
Code: [Select]
sudo update-grub
Which should find the Peppermint installation and add it to the (current) Ubuntu boot menu.

Quote
Can you install it OVER Ubuntu 10.4.1 so it incorporates the data and settings, or is that asking too much.

If you don't have a separate /home partition .. YES it's asking too much .. I probably wouldn't advise it anyway as there are a lot of configs in your home folder which could cause problems.

Best to remove Ubuntu completely first .. obviously after backing up what you cannot afford to loose.
(obviously if you remove Ubuntu, then install Peppermint you WILL need Peppermint to install its bootloader)

Just carry on.

FYI .. "sudo su" changes you to a root prompt (denoted by a # prompt instead of a $ prompt) .. the second command NEEDS to be run from a root prompt .. the third command "exit" will return you to a regular user prompt ($) :)

So if you just do the updates on a Live Distro it will  install them on the stick. Damn AAO though, maybe I lost chance. After using the live version for 3-4 days perfectly- it doesn;t boot up again: get:
SYSLINUX 4.06, then
Starting NTP server ntpd
Stopping save kernal messages
Stopping System V runlevel compatibility
then some login shell command line:
  peppermint@peppermint
all only text, nographics

On another 2gig stick, I put the most recent issue Nov5-2012-32bit (other was July)- that is freezing on the  SYSLINUX screen though it also shows as HDD

I'm making a 1gig persistance file- is that too big?
Title: Re: Tutorial - Installing PeppermintOS Three on an Acer Aspire One AOA110L ZG5
Post by: Mark Greaves (PCNetSpec) on January 13, 2013, 08:18:52 pm
Nope .. the bigger the persistence file better .. if you plan on making lots of changes.

The AA1 can be finicky about which USB sticks it likes .. the recent Peppermint respin should work if the original did .. they only changed a few packages, so t shouldn't affect the booting.

A *quick* google suggests the "Stopping System V runlevel compatibility" error might be being caused by a graphics driver issue .. did you do the updates ? .. as I said a LiveUSB with persistence LAYERS the new stuff, so there *may* be a chance that updating the graphics drivers caused the problem.

I just wanted to thank you for the tutorial.  I really appreciate your taking the time to write something so clear and detailed.  I've got my ZG5 roaring along again and it seems faster than Peppermint 2.  If this distro had been the one that the ZG5 sold with they'd have really been more popular.  I love the form factor of the computer.  I wish they made a new one just like it but with a dual core atom and hd graphics.  I'd buy one in a minute.  Ah well with this kind of software it's good for another couple of years anyway.  Thanks again!

Post by: mako6 on January 28, 2013, 07:29:27 pm
I am finally ready to install Pep3.
A few questions:  I had big problems with my Windows- for weeks HD was just buzzing and the CPU was bouncing from 10 to 100% in a regular rythm, so I don't trust the stick I burned. Then I did last single Windows Update today and problem was solved. Can I check the stick with the MD5 somehow, or should I do it again. It does seem to work OK

2. I presume it's better practice to remove the left SD card (16gb w me so can't confuse it) before PEP installation. I there any advantage or disadvantage to leacing it in on installation?

3. On Step 8 you have: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash pciehp.pciehp_ force=1"
I presume "l" is L or is it 1

5. It was so much faster (no write delays at all!), and better on battery (4.8 hours) that I am eager to finally install it. It is more flexible to say "TRY PEP" and install from LIVE version, right- the simple initial INSTALL PEPPERMINT choice 2 gives you no real options or info as it does it?

6. Is there any difference in doing all the standard updates with the terminal, or with their updater?
6. What was good audio recording program. Audiocity? And video that finds the built in camera.

7b
4. You said updates or changes to the LIVE stick are done OVER the old files. Does that mean the old files are left, cause it can't change the original installation (why), and anything new or changed is written to the persistent file (which I can't move anything into on file manager), and somehow it reads that after bootup and uses changed system + program files from there??? Every time it does an operation? Without MP3 support, Live stick is pretty limited, and I'd like latest fixes, but not if that makes it run 3x slower.

@ smogreg

Thanks for the kind words (I think) .. happy to hear it was a help :)



@ mako6

1) It won't hurt to recreate the LiveUSB .. just in case.

2) YES .. remove the SD card or it will interfere with the installation.

3) depends which you mean .. there's an L is "splash" but if you mean at the end, it's a 1 (one)

5) doesn't really matter, the desktop "Install Peppermint" icon, and the Install Peppermint menu item both start the same Ubiquity installer .. the reason I suggest the desktop icon is because it's easier to boot to the Live environment, SET UP WIRELESS, then install .. that way you can get the udates etc. during the install.

6) yes (I think) .. the terminal will also update the kernel and other things mintupdate doesn't.

6 again) Yes, for audio recording Audacity .. for webcam recording (with audo) Cheese

7b) ???

4) OK, because a "Live" iso image is primarily designed for a CDROM, the file system is compressed (squashfs) and is therefore read-only, so any changes have to  be written to a "persistence file" .. so let's say you update something, the original version is still there in the squashfs file system, but it loads the version from the persistence file in precedence.

It's my guess that it would either:-
a) load the original to RAM first, then overwrite it (in RAM) with the version from the persistence file.
or
b) for every file it loads to RAM, check to see if there's a newer version in the persistence file first .. which would be terribly inefficient.

Either way, there's an overhead.

Post by: mako6 on January 30, 2013, 03:52:48 am
Mysteries of the universe revealed. It was always L before, not 1, ha ha. Thanks. I would say removing the SD card is an important step. Is there any chance saving anything on the stick damages it? Very strange how first stick stopped loading after running perfectly for 4 days. Can one save regular files on that persistent (casper?) folder- it doesn't let me write anything into it (or is it done another way)?
So squash means "compressed"- I thought it was the veggy- that explains alot about LIVE images- seems dumb to compress them when they go on a USB stick, or at 539mb,
might fit on CD without it. But I guess its all loaded onto RAM, so holdup would just be on initial boot? Any brilliant way to do that uncompressed and update the installation files directly?

 So 100 odd updates would probably slow a LIve stick up alot. I could be an evangelist for P3 (wasn't that a Terminator?), and use it when people have a junked OS, or just to demonstrate the
incredible speed and safety of Linux. Everyone here has pirate Windows ($6 for anything, like Win7 dual discs, with latest updates, and 100 cracked programs; or $2000 CAD programs), so
they can't do the updates and are soon infected with  dozen viruses. They usually put OS on small partition, data on another, and at the first signs of serious trouble wipe and reload the OS
and programs- if they're smart, they buy a new disc with the latest updates cracked in. Insanely, most people here don't run any AV! MS has office here, but they've given up fighting piracy, since it's 98% of people. In civilized England do ISP's block most movie downloads?

Nope, no mistake .. I haven't entered a space there, but I DO know about the space appearing when that line is copy/pasted, which is why directly underneath reads:-

Quote
Visually check the edit to make sure there are no spaces where there shouldn't be, then SAVE the file, and exit gedit.

But I've extended that slightly to:-

Quote
Visually check the edit to make sure there are no spaces where there shouldn't be, then SAVE the file, and exit gedit.
(be sure to visually check before saving, some people are reporting that when they copy/paste the above a space is appearing in pciehp_force between _ and f)

Greetings,
Finally did it. All went pretty well, though thought I made crucial mistake. Did the 2 checkboxes choices: install updates, and install restricted extras- saw you listed 2 things and there were 2 things, then a few steps later saw WAIT on restricted extras. But it did do a new installation of restricted-software, so maybe all OK. Had good live Internet and it downloaded 300 files.  Read the instructions 3 times, but can't do it slow enough. Wish I had manually set swap at 1gig- with 1 1/2g RAM don't need 1.6. (Maybe still can -that shouldn't mess up the files 3.6g back?)Anyway, it seemed to go OK whole installation, but couldn't find Skype or apt-xarian-index; tried changing repositories 3 times- Berlin, Ukraine, Columbia + updated, but couldn't find package. Couldn't find Skype in software updater either. Copied alot of profile into FF, not all (plugins, prefs), and it might be a bit unstable.
Even ttf-mscorefonts-installer and lubuntu-extras seem to install OK (with slight warning). But when I tried to install right card-reader, started getting all kinds of permission hassles with "sudo update-grub" error most alarming. No, it somehow added an extra quote when I saved it twice. NOW OK!

The Jupiter isn't changing color or shape when you pull power cable- should it be "power-on-demand"; and should video display be "both displays clone" (Is that the workspace?)

earcandy - Sound level manager for PulseAudio
mako7@mako7-AOA110 ~ $

That explains it- I was under the weather and copied from laptop, stupid rather than copying and pasting. Xapian is a  searchable database toolkit? What programs is it used in or necessary for? I'm a little shocked I only have 2.6g left without any data. Also installed Java 6 JRE, Audiocity, GFTP, GThumb (is there a more efficient LXDE program?).

The Jupiter is switching now, it just had to stabilize.

On the Russian language, you don't drag it above the 2nd English listing, right, or that makes it default on the whole system. It won't actually switch without that inserted code? I was totally confused when I installed it, but it still wasn't highlighted. Looks like the PREFERENCES/input keyboard switcher was set to "none" - with system default may find the Russian.

Can I reduce the swap by .6 gig without erasing the SSD? I've actually done it before w GParted boot CD.

Check you did stage 4 (http://linuxforums.org.uk/index.php?topic=10313.msg76517#msg76517) again.

Once all the extra repos are enabled .. close Synaptic, and run:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get update
then
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install skype



Yes, you should be able to resize the swap partition, then expand the main partition .. you'll have to do this from your Peppermint 3 LiiveUSB, and use gparted.

Do you need Java 6 AND 7 JRE, or just the higher- Java made it look like you needed both.I could only find the 6 + 6Ice Tea, though that may have been a repository problem.

Does Synaptic get the exact same versions of programs as the terminal windows command (like apt-get install flashplayer), or is terminal window better or more complete?

Is installation really normally 2.6 gig- that's alot bigger than Linpus initially, huh? Guess I try to clean up all the packages with Tweak, no their Tweak is a hex-editor. Whats safe package cleaner program

I mean 5.8 gig used, 2.6 left.

Unfortunately my microphone seems quite dead with Skype + Audiocity, though I did your settings.

Well you didn't follow the tutorial properly then .. what's the output from:
Code: [Select]
dpkg -l | grep flash

You don't necessarily need JAVA at all .. I wouldn't have it enabled in my browser .. but IF  were to have it enabled, it would be the iced-tea plugin.

Yes .. ALL software is coming from the same repositories, no matter how you install it (manual downloading/installing excepted of course)

5.8GB is excessive (people have no problem fitting Peppermint on a 4GB EeePC with a swap partition and room to spare) .. try cleaning your package cache (after installing software/update):
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get clean

then send the output from:
Code: [Select]
sudo fdisk -l
and
Code: [Select]
sudo df -h

Synaptic ;)

Try bleachbit .. but be aware, there is no such thing as a completely safe system cleaner .. so check what it's going to remove first.

Guess I have it:
ii  flashplugin-installer                  11.2.202.262ubuntu0.12.04.1             Adobe Flash Player plugin installer
I think? (he said insipidly)

I had all 8 pages of your manual open at once on lappy, so did everything judiciously. No I have 1.5g swap so after that CLEAN instruction,  3.6g used of 6.5, 3.0 free- not too bad. Thanks. I  just filled my 16 SD 85% with all the stuff off the Linpus. Time for a 32gb

Microphone is somewhat crucial for Skype and if audiocity works may use it for radio recording (w external). For 2 years of so didn't have the internal, and dearly missed it.

No, but I have a tiny 7 gig partition at the end of the disc on laptop for Ubuntu so I have to be ruthless on space. Guess that would work.

Got any ideas on jimmying the internal mike to work

On an Acer Aspire One ?

If you followed stage 9 (on an AA1):

your mic should be working ???

No, internal mike is dead as a doornail, though I've never seen a live one. Tried external mike on it BTW and got horrible distortion till I reduced those volume levels you specified. What worked for me was 32-100% mike boost, 37% capture (both sides, since it is stereo jack, and audiocity wants other side too), 66-77% digital. The mike boost would crazily autoset to 100% when Skype connected to a (test) call, and then had no other setting but 32% or 0, very strange. With 32% it was quite clear, 100% had a bit of distortion but manageable if the capture was turned down.

The on-board mike may be much less sensitive. It initially didn't work for over 1 year, then some update to Skype or benevolent spirits fixed it?

Re: the fan running all the time- I fixed that too, but it isn't necessary to enter commands for temp. If people installed Jupiter, the core temp is at the top when you click on it.

I noticed Cheese had alot of Gnome dependencies including Nautilus- we should prefer KDE programs rather than Gnome for size and efficiency, right?

Most definitely NOT .. KDE apps will pull in more dependencies than Gnome apps .. but for now DO NOT install cheese, as you say the new version has nautilus as a dependency which may break Peppermint .. leave it with me for a few days and I'll see if it's possible to remove that dependency.

Meanwhile, you could try guvcview .. it doesn't work on my AA1 but my Peppermint install is now heavily modified.

Did you take the tick OUT of "Allow Skype to autiatically adjust my mixer levels" ?

in Skype is the Microphone sound device set to "PulseAudio server (local)" ?

OK, anyone that wants cheese in Peppermint 3 .. install it with the --no-install-recommends option .. as one of the recommends is nautilus, and you don't want that.

So to install cheese, open a terminal and run:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install --no-install-recommends cheese

First make sure you have a Peppermint 3 LiveUSB .. just in case we need to reinstall grub after trying the things below.

First try this:
Code: [Select]
sudo dpkg-reconfigure grub-pc

If you still get errors, try this:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get remove --purge grub-pc
then
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install grub-pc

Any errors ?

Sorry about the delay getting back to you, Mark.

 I used the Peppermint 3 LiveUSB after pasting your instructions. I found it nigh impossible to re-install Grub, so decided to cut my losses and do a TOTAL Peppermint re-install, including any updates. Although I saved the error messages to Libre Writer, the re-install has obviously overwritten them. I recall one error message stating that grub was broken or missing components or some such information.

When I tried to post to the forum I was prompted for a Google email ID and password, which I do not use ?? That's why I chose a complete re-install. As far as I can tell, the install has worked OK, but I shall see what happens when I attempt to download the next recommended updates. It may be that my LiveUSB was corrupted from the outset.

Should it recur, I will save the error messages to another USB and post them. So please don't think I have set out to waste your time. Your support is fully appreciated ! So maybe my previous two posts can be deleted until the situation arises again ? (And perhaps you prefer us punters to show the Terminal output as attachments to our posts?)

As an aside, Firefox as part of the PP3 installation does not seem to activate the "Search" box in the middle of the screen (under the Firefox logo). One has to use the 'Paste and Go' option at the top of the screen. Not crucial, but such a workaround is a bit messy.

Many thanks agaain.....

Just set

Thank you Mark, but perhaps I wasn't clear about Firefox not being operational after installing Peppermint Three.

 I get the screen you showed, but clicking on the BLUE search box in the middle of the screen does not activate any search. I have to revert to the Search Bar Address at the top of the screen to search. The Search Box in the middle of the screen remains dormant.

Post by: Mark Greaves (PCNetSpec) on February 15, 2013, 03:11:39 am
My apologies (I was wrong about - about:startpage) .. do this:

In the Firefox address bar enter:

about:config

Hit enter.

Click the "I'll be careful, I promise!" button.

In the search field enter:-

mstone

Right-click the:-

browser.startup.homepage_override.mstone

entry, and select:-

Reset

Close ALL instances of Firefox .. and restart it.

Now in the Firefox address bar, enter:-

about:home

and hit Enter.

Does the search box/button work now ?

If so, set about:home as your homepage (if you wish).

Hi mark

Am having problems installing peppermint os three on my Acer one running the old linpus os. I followed your steps of downloading the peppermint file then used the usb installer link. Step 1 is complete
I than plug the usb and turn on my acer and select f12 for boot options
I then select USB from three boot options
I then get a black screen with the message

Please help..

Many thanks

Hi waxi699, and welcome to the forum :)

When you turn on your AA1, and hit F12 to select the USB stick .. is the USB stick listed as:-

USB HDD (Hard Disk Drive)
or
USB FDD (Floppy Disk Drive)
?

If it's listed as a FDD, chances are you'll have to use a different USB stick .. the AA1 can be a bit fussy about some USB sticks.

There's a *small* chance that a different LiveUSB creator application will work, but it's unlikely :(

There's also chance that turning the Peppermint ISO image into an isohybrid image, then using cat/dd to put it on the USB stick might work .. but you'd need a Linux PC to do this (not Linpus).

By far the easiest solution is a different USB stick.

hello mark

thanks for your reply.

I believe it was showing USB FDD, i was using Sony 8GB USB,

I will try another USB tomorrow and see how i get on.

Thanks again

Okey Dokey .. Good Luck :)

I have noticed that the cheaper USB sticks tend to be recognised by the AA1 better than some of the branded ones .. but really it's probably just luck of the draw.

Many thanks for this tutorial, I am enjoying the little Acer even more now. Only problem I have is getting Skype - using the cmd line I get "can't find application" and using the SPM, I choose skype but it never shows up in my menu - the SPM says it's installing it - any clues?

Hi Traveler/Mike, and welcome to the forum :)

You must have missed the part where you enable the "Partner" and/or "Independent" repositories.

Enabling the extra software repositories

In the menu, go to System Tools > Synaptic Package Manager, enter your password, when Synaptic starts -

Go to Settings > Repositories .. when a new window opens -

On the "Peppermint Software" tab, make sure ALL 4 boxes are ticked.

On the "Other Software" tab, make sure all boxes are ticked EXCEPT the cdrom:[Peppermint 3_Three_ - Release i386 (20120423)]/ precise

Click Close

Click the Reload button on the Synaptic toolbar.

Close Synaptic.

(It's IMPORTANT that you close Synaptic, or the commands in the next bit won't run)

When Synaptic has closed, open a terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T) and run:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get update
then
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install skype

Title: Peppermint 4 - differences in installation; advantages; size
Post by: mako6 on August 02, 2013, 05:27:24 pm
Can anyone who's installed Pep4 say if there are any modifications or problems with Mark's magnificent instructions. Any big differences or dis/advantages? Howzabout size- with all the recommended programs Pep3 came in at 6-6 1/2 gb, about my limit for little partition at end of the disc. IS Pep4 bigger?
Title: Re: Tutorial - Installing PeppermintOS Three on an Acer Aspire One AOA110L ZG5
Post by: Mark Greaves (PCNetSpec) on August 02, 2013, 07:45:00 pm
AFAIK, the only differences to install Peppermint 4 are -

a) Don't (currently) use Pendrivelinux's Universal USB Installer fi creating the LiveUSB in Windows, use this:
http://www.linuxliveusb.com/ (http://www.linuxliveusb.com/)
If using an Ubuntu based distro to create it, the "Startup Disk Creator" works just fine.

Universal USB Installer STILL hasn't got persistent support for Peppermint 4, or even Lubuntu/Xubuntu 13.04 yet .. c'mon pull your finger out  ::) .. there'a a good chance renaming tghe PM4 ISO to whatever the PM3 ISO was called would work .. but I haven't tested that. Use LinuxLive from the link above instead.

b) Ignore "Stage 11" .. the Jupiter power manager is no longer in active development as it's been replaced by TLP:
http://linrunner.de/en/tlp/docs/tlp-linux-advanced-power-management.html (http://linrunner.de/en/tlp/docs/tlp-linux-advanced-power-management.html)

Dunno if PM4 is any larger (installed size) .. but I doubt if there's much in it either way .. that said, I can't talk for later versions of any software you install that's in the 13.04 repo's.

OK. It's about 60Mb more compressed so that's maybe 300Mb more installed? Anyone do it and can say what exact initial installed size is, or total size after all recommended programs?

DO NOT download Pep4 from that page on 1st page of tutorial, they have a TORRENT for 32 + 64 bits at http://peppermintos.com/. (http://peppermintos.com/.) I did it and it took 7 hours! Argh. No worries on burning flash, though now bought 6 little micro SD's, because 7 yr old lappy doesn't have provision to boot from jump drive.

SO size doesn't necessarily mean anything (as far as installed size goes) .. it may contain more drivers that won't be used, etc.

Or as you say it MAY be bigger when installed  :o

Hmm, both Pep3 and Pep4 CD's hang on TRYOUT install to ACER 5003 lappy. Are there OS issues w my junky 7 yr old lappy? It does have that paella or whatever, PAE capacity- I tested it.  Did MD5 on the 4 file, but not the discs (can't fnd the MD5 for AMD64 Pep3- mine is Nov 2012, and they now only list July 2012. There's an MD5 file on the disc, but it's got 40 different ones. Maybe that disc burning prog- Brasero- is getting funky.

Are you saying you cannot run it in LiveCD mode (Try Peppermint) ?

Are there any error messages displayed ?

Are you using CDR's or DVDR's and not CDRW's or DVD-RW's ?

Can that laptop boot from USB stick .. have you tried creating/booting a LiveUSB ?

Hi mark. 

It's been 2 years since I started following your brilliant instructions to install Peppermint on my AOA 150, and then the fan fix which worked great.  This time, when I installed Peppermint 4 the fan started getting busy again. I followed your fan fix instructions but get an error when I enter: sudo modprobe acerhdf.  It says: ERROR: could not insert 'acerhdf': Invalid argument.  The temp check command does not work either.  It says: No such file or directory.  The fan is still running.  Any ideas please? 

I hope this is the right place to post my question, or am I supposed to start a new topic? 

Thanks.

Karen

Hi Karen .. there's a tutorial for Peppermint 4 here:
Tutorial - Installing PeppermintOS Four on an Acer Aspire One AOA110L ZG5 (http://linuxforums.org.uk/index.php?topic=11109.0)

The acerhdf that's in the default repos for Peppermint 4 is broken .. but take a look at "Stage 10" for how to download/compile/install a fixed version under Peppermint 4.

There are also some other minor adjustments in the Peppermint 4 tutorial ;)

Thanks for getting back to me.  I am probably posting in the wrong place! 

Looking at the link, it is the same as the Stage 10 I followed which is on the Peppermint OS forum posted Fri Aug 30 2013.  The errors I am getting are from following Stage 10.  What should I do now?
