Peppermint / Peppermint OS web site certificate issues [SOLVED]
« on: February 26, 2020, 10:42:43 am »
Hi All

Have been trying to access the Peppermint OS web site and forum for the past couple of days with the following message: "Web sites prove their identity via certificates, which are valid for a set time period. The certificate for expired on 23/02/2020."  Following Mark's tragic passing I do hope all is well.


Ubuntu / 'Failed to fetch' Google Chrome [SOLVED]
« on: March 07, 2016, 02:43:37 pm »
For the last few days I've been getting the following error message when I force refresh:

“Failed to fetch Unable to find expected entry ‘main/binary-i386/Packages’ in Release file (Wrong sources.list entry or malformed file)”

Now I've done some research and this error message is affecting both 32-bit and 64-bit distros even though it should only be for 32-bit.  So as I have an Acer ZG5 (Peppermint 6) which is 32-bit I'm correctly getting the error message - but I'd rather not.  Is this just a case of editing out  /etc/apt/sources.list.d/google-chrome.list or is there something more elegant and persistent I should try?  All views welcome!

I never use either Chrome or Chromium (which isn't listed anyway) on the ZG5.

Peppermint / OS 6 unresponsive after boot - help!
« on: November 26, 2015, 12:20:22 pm »
Have been tinkering around and may have caused this to happen by using Synaptic Package Manager to remove 31 packages categorised as Not installed (residual config).  I selected Mark for Complete Removal for all 31 packages.  The symptons are that my ZG5 becomes unresponsive following the peppermint Starting Up... screen.

I've been able to reboot the ZG5 using my 2GB USB memory stick but don't know how to restore the 31 packages or even if this is possible.  So I have two questions:

Have I caused this problem by removing these packages?
If so, then what is the simplest and quickest way to recover?

Please help! 

On my boot stick there are 21 packages listed as Not Installed (residual config).

Peppermint / OS6 not recognising Bluetooth component
« on: October 28, 2015, 02:30:15 pm »
Greetings to all.  Thanks to Mark Greaves and all at Peppermint I have two Acer Aspire Ones (ZG5) running very nicely on OS6 having migrated to OS5 from Linus Lite and then on to OS6.

I recently replaced the Atheros b/g wifi card with an Intel Wireless-N 7260 to following a router upgrade to 802.11n but I want to use the built in Bluetooth 4.0 component as well.  The 7260 wireless component worked out-of-box.  All I had to do was turn on the wifi and re-enter my wifi password.  However no matter what I've tried I've not been able to get the ZG5 or OS to recognise the Bluetooth component.  Dmesg shows Bluetooth v 2.19, lspci shows Intel Wireless 7260 (rev 3) and rfkill is not blocking. Intel's Bluetooth driver ibt-hw-37.7.10-fw-  is in my /lib/firmware/Intel folder.

My ZG5 has the latest BIOS v3310 and N270 microcode as well as the latest updates from Software Manager.  Right now I just don't know if the ZG5 is compatible with the Bluetooth component or I'm missing something blindingly obvious.  Any suggestions or pointers gratefully accepted!
