Sorry Mark,
Been right busy lately and forgot to reply to this. Always on the Chromebook and sometimes the Android tablet ( that can be very annoying though as it has so many ads, and adblockers don't get rid of them!)

I'll be using this notebook over the weekend because my Chromebook's keyboard isn't working properly- so many keys just do nothing when pressed, and not spilled anything over it ever, and never had a problem with it until Google gave me an update notification!!! I rang the Polish computer shop and he said it might be new drivers needed ( it's a fairly old one) so he said to bring it down on Mon and he wil look at it, but said probably I will be best getting a wireless keyboard from Chlas Ohlsen. I don't mind that- they are those better keyboards for typing on anyway.

Yeahhhh...a day after I posted this I thought I'd try flash on the Firefox browser and it works there. But Firefox is sloooooooooooooowww and I much prefer Chrome. For some reason ipiccy on Chrome thinks I'm using Safari browser.

I hope the computer guys will be able to fix my Chromebook and get it charging again!

This notebook is okay but screen is so teensy, I struggle to read stuff.

When I looked it up online it said it did. Mark my computer mouse died last night so I cannot post those commands you gave me until I get another one. I find trackpads imnpossible to cut and paste with. Sorry for typos, I can't use trackpads easily for editing, this has teensy screen so bad typing sorry. And to add insult to injury I woke up to find my Chromebook is dead again and won't charge!!!! I had taken it to the comuter shop and got a new charger for it. It has been working great for 3 days and now it is not. I have to take it to the computer repair shop again this afternoon.

Hey guys I like to use ipiccy online for photo editing as it's easy, but the flash is disabled and I don't know how to enable it. What do I do? I have got Pinta but I'm finding it tricky and it keeps closing itself down.

Anyone know how to get my bluetooth speaker to work please? I've been trying and trying since yesterday and it will not work, just a message about a daemon.

Sorry Mark- I had to pop out to the shops and hurry back as had visitors so forgot.

Hey guys for some reason I cannot get Bluetooth to work on my Peppermint notebook- there is an icon there but it just comes up with a weird dialogue box and says the "daemon" is not there.

I got a little netbook on Peppermint 9 and just can't figure out how to get to the network manager to connect it. Usually netbooks and laptops automatically have a box that pops up and starts searching for the wi fi. This does not happen.

General Help & Advice / Re: HELP my Ubuntu notebook has crashed!

Wow, thanks Mark- I can do that. It works very very slowly on that Ubuntu - something is up when you think it has 4GB RAM.
Sorry for late reply. I changed my internet company to EE and it takes about 10 days to get my broadband speed right, but it has been slooooooow- so I called them and they said there is a fault on my BT line. I'm waiting for the engineer to come right now.

The internet has nowt to do with the notebook being slow though as my Chromebook has been slow too, which normally it is not ( except at night when I was with TT as they practise traffic management).

PM me an address to send the notebook to. I'll go to the post office with notebook to see how much it will cost me to send it later if engineer arrives before it closes; if not will take it tomorrow.

Sorry once again Mark- just had a lot to do and been unwell again. I have tried 3 times to do what you told me in that link but it  won't go to the boot device selection screen.

What happens is that I tap tap tap the F9 key and the Ubuntu logo flashes like crazy and then a black screen comes up with tons of white writing and it will not do anything else after that and needs to be powered off.

The machine is useless - I think we should admit defeat and I will toss it in the local recycling centre.

I will just have to wait til I can save up or get that grant for the Dell latitude laptop.

It's finally done it! My broadband is so slow these days. I need to ring my internet provider and get it sorted out. I read a router older than 5 years ( which mine is) will not perform properly.

You obviously don't have that file on this PC, so go ahead and download it.

Yes, doing it- it says one hour left- hope it doesn't take that long!
