Linux Support / Re: Lite 3.8 Blank Screen After Opening Lid
« on: October 07, 2021, 08:50:58 am »
Not familiar with Lite, but I believe it uses XFCE, so you may have something similar to other users.

Have a look in Power Manager -> Security, see if Lock screen enabled when Screensaver is activated.

Also have a look at Screensaver settings, the lock might be initiated by that

Linux Support / Re: Can't do a manual fsck on root system
« on: September 21, 2021, 08:54:03 pm »
run fsck from a Live-CD/Live-USB
Identify partitions

Code: [Select]
sudo fdisk -l

Make sure they are unmounted:
Code: [Select]

Code: [Select]
for n in /dev/sda* ; do umount $n ; done

then run fsck on them (substitute X to suit):

Code: [Select]
fsck /dev/sdaX

or fix an hard drive related issue called bad blocks you may have (this will take a long time).

Code: [Select]
fsck -cy /dev/sdaX
or
Code: [Select]
fsck -C0 -p -f -v /dev/sdaX

Linux Support / Re: Log in requested for samba shares in Peppermint
« on: September 21, 2021, 08:48:27 pm »
If I remember right, with newer Samba, it will not allow anonymous public share
Try adding to your smb.conf
Code: [Select]
[global]
    map to guest = Bad User
    log file = /var/log/samba/%m
    log level = 1

Code: [Select]
[your share]
    # This share allows anonymous (guest) access
    # without authentication!
    read only = no
    guest ok = yes
    force user = nobody

Run the command it tells you to
Code: [Select]
sudo dpkg --configure -a
and it should be able to correct itself.

If it doesn't try running
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install -f
(to fix broken packages) and then try running
Code: [Select]
sudo dpkg --configure -a
again.
Just make sure you have internet access available so that you can download any dependencies.

Linux Support / Re: MPV Media player doesn´t play my DVDs on Ubuntu
« on: August 02, 2021, 08:40:09 pm »
Keith,

Mpv is a videoplayer, so will only display content when playing that.

The information on the bottom of the window will stay on, if you move (and leave) your cursor there.

As Mad Penguin pointed out, it is a good idea, having a mailer running on your system to get notifications (by mail) of impending doom. So you may still want to install postfix.
If you are happy that all is well, please mark the title of your first post on this topic as [SOLVED].

So I closed the terminal and opened it again and put in what it told me and then I got this message:

By closing the terminal, you left the process dangling, so blocking debconf.
You should have completed the install in the same terminal.

Try again (after a reboot) and see if that removed the lock
If not then try:

Code: [Select]
sudo fuser -vik /var/cache/debconf/config.dat
Will display the process and ask if you want to terminate it.

Then run:
Code: [Select]
sudo dpkg-reconfigure libdvd-pkg

Well, you must have installed (or tried to) mailutils (postfix) which after forcing the fix-missing has come to the point of setting itself up  ::)

It appears that if you got install recommends set then smartmontools will pull in mailutils.

Remove the packages first:

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get remove smartmontools
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get autoremove

You can test this by:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install -s smartmontools

To install without the extra packages use this:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install --no-install-recommends smartmontools

Always update before install  ;)

Try installing it again
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install smartmontools

then on a full disk (not partition)
Code: [Select]
sudo smartctl -a /dev/sda

Check if /dev/sda is mounted
Code: [Select]
mount | grep "/dev/sda*"

if it is then unmount it
Code: [Select]
sudo umount /dev/sda2

then run fsck to test and repair (this will be verbose)
Code: [Select]
sudo fsck -pvf /dev/sda2

or

Code: [Select]
sudo fsck -yvf /dev/sda2

Did not realise that you cannot boot your laptop :-[

Back to line USB/CD (lowercase L)
Please post the complete output here to show what is visible from live env.
Code: [Select]
sudo fdisk -l

OK,

Try a different route, log in to your laptop then:
Get last time filesystem was checked

Code: [Select]
sudo tune2fs -l /dev/sda2 | grep Last\ c
then mount count since then
Code: [Select]
sudo tune2fs -l /dev/sda2 | grep Mount
check how many mounts are allowed before check
Code: [Select]
sudo tune2fs -l /dev/sda2 | grep Max

To force fsck on every boot:
Code: [Select]
sudo tune2fs -c 1 /dev/sda2
or every 10 boots
Code: [Select]
sudo tune2fs -c 10 /dev/sda2

To disable fsck on boot
Code: [Select]
sudo tune2fs -c -1 /dev/sda2

Warning!  /dev/sda2 is mounted.

Still mounted?

Probably a lot easier if you got nothing to loose

Warning!  /dev/sda is in use.
Did you unmount all sda partitions?

Please list partitions (that is lowercase L):
Code: [Select]
sudo fdisk -l

Then run fsck on partitions other than swap:
Code: [Select]
sudo fsck -n /dev/sda1

or
Code: [Select]
sudo fsck -n /dev/sda2

If that still throws the superblock corrupt message then
try running e2fsck with an alternate superblock (replace <device> with /dev/sda1 or sda2):
   
Code: [Select]
sudo e2fsck -b 8193 <device>
