Green ticked response here:
https://askubuntu.com/questions/22108/how-to-control-fan-speed

but BE CAREFUL, if you get it wrong and enable it as a service (so it starts at boot) you could find your CPU overheating.

No "driver" is required for a router for ANY operating system.

OK, (with an active internet connection) can you run this command:
Code: [Select]
cd ~ && wget http://www.alsa-project.org/alsa-info.sh -O alsa-info.sh && bash alsa-info.sh --upload
you should then be presented with a bunch of output that ends with something similar to this:-

Peppermint / Re: Problems creating a new user on Peppermint 3

Peppermint 9 is out.

AFAIK the D505 should work with Peppermint 8 or 9 (32bit) .. though you might need to add the forcepae kernel boot parameter.

In "users and groups", make the account an "Administrator".

if you run:
Code: [Select]
peppermint-logout
then select the "Logout" option.

Are you able to log into the new account from the login screen ?
(ie. Is this just a problem because the "keith" account is set to autologin ?)

If so, run:
Code: [Select]
sudo gedit /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf
and change the line
Code: [Select]
autologin-user=keith
to
Code: [Select]
autologin-user=
SAVE the file, and reboot to test you now end up at the login screen

Which version/architecture of Mint ? (eg. Mint 18 64bit)

And is your system UEFI or Legacy BIOS ?

Have you still got the Mint LiveUSB ?

If so, boot to it, then post the output from running these commands:
Code: [Select]
inxi -Fz
and
Code: [Select]
sudo fdisk -l
and
Code: [Select]
sudo blkid

Before doing anything else, have you run:
Code: [Select]
sudo sensors-detect
and answered "y" (yes) to all the questions.

Then rebooted and tested if that makes any difference ?

General Help & Advice / Re: Computers Specifically for Linux
« on: July 21, 2018, 03:36:21 pm »
So what's your price range ?

I'm pretty sure people could advise you on systems within that range that are known to work well with Linux .. even though they may come with Windows pre-installed.

Ubuntu / Re: Ubuntu Software unavailable
« on: July 21, 2018, 03:32:48 pm »
No it won't, ii just updates the package cache (it makes NO changes to your system) .. I only want you to run it to see if it reports any errors that indicate a problem with your sources.
