Linux Support / Screen resolution
« on: July 01, 2018, 10:44:05 pm »
Hi there everyone.
Not a regular visitor here but for a very good reason, I never have any problems with Peppermint, ever.
I am only here now for a quick question and probably a very obvious answer. I have recently got a new monitor so I can work from home while linked into the office PC but am being forced to use windows at the moment because I cant get the screen resolution any higher than 1024x768 in Peppermint and this won't allow me to see the whole of the software screen when linked in to work. Is there any way to set/force the resolution to 1920x 1080?

Linux Support / Failed to mount.
« on: May 15, 2016, 02:04:55 pm »
For some reason my external drive has stopped mounting at startup.
Returns this message

Code: [Select]
Error mounting system-managed device /dev/sdb1: Command-line `mount "/mnt/usb-Samsung_D3_Station_00000000011E0A49-0:0-part1"' exited with non-zero exit status 32: mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdb1,
       missing codepage or helper program, or other error
       In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
       dmesg | tail  or so

Don't know if this is related to the recent update but it has only just started happening.
Can manually mount it in discs, and will auto mount if told to do so from mount options but just doesn't seem to work any more from the existing fstab entry that has always worked.

Code: [Select]
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a
# device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices
# that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).

General Discussion / Peppermint six install advice
« on: January 06, 2016, 08:48:09 pm »
Happy New Year everybody hope you all had a good Christmas and not finding your resolutions to hard to pursue.

A work colleague has just purchased this

And has asked me to install peppermint on it.
I've advised a dual boot and already have a live USB (32 bit) that I have just put on my desktop.
Just wanted to check if there are any known issues in my near future?

Linux Support / H 264 level editor
« on: December 06, 2015, 08:26:54 pm »
I have some newer videos that wont play on my tv via via my nas because they are broadcasting a format profile of 5.1 and my TV will only handle 4.0.
I can change the format profile with ffmpeg without converting the whole file so it's quick but, while I have downloaded ffmpeg-2.8.3.tar.bz2 I can't work out how to install it.
Instructions read

1. Type `./configure` to create the configuration. A list of configure
options is printed by running `configure --help`.

    `configure` can be launched from a directory different from the FFmpeg
sources to build the objects out of tree. To do this, use an absolute
path when launching `configure`, e.g. `/ffmpegdir/ffmpeg/configure`.

2. Then type `make` to build FFmpeg. GNU Make 3.81 or later is required.

3. Type `make install` to install all binaries and libraries you built.

I'm sure I'm not doing it right but am at a loss as to why.
Any help appreciated.

Linux Support / Network card settings.
« on: December 04, 2015, 03:22:30 pm »
I could be reading this wrong, but I think my card is capable of 1000mb/s.

Code: [Select]
Settings for eth0:
Supported ports: [ TP ]
Supported link modes:   10baseT/Half 10baseT/Full
                        100baseT/Half 100baseT/Full
Supported pause frame use: No
Supports auto-negotiation: Yes
Advertised link modes:  10baseT/Half 10baseT/Full
                        100baseT/Half 100baseT/Full
Advertised pause frame use: No
Advertised auto-negotiation: Yes
Speed: 100Mb/s
Duplex: Full
Port: Twisted Pair
Transceiver: internal
Auto-negotiation: on
MDI-X: on (auto)
Supports Wake-on: pumbg
Wake-on: g
Current message level: 0x00000007 (7)
       drv probe link
Link detected: yes
I have tried but been unable to change from 100mb/s, any advice?
Have just bought new cat 6 cables for the house but now might have to get new card if it cant be changed.

Tried this

Code: [Select]
sudo ethtool -s eth0 speed 1000 duplex full autoneg off

But didn't work

Linux Support / Windows 10 upgrade and grub

I'm currently running win 7 alongside Peppermint but was wondering if upgrading to win 10 will cause problems with booting up and grub.

Linux Support / Cloned hdd to a new ssd but... [Solved]
« on: August 07, 2015, 08:09:50 pm »
Cloned hdd to a new ssd using clonezilla and it did exactly what it was asked to do but I've been left with a small problem.
Windoze is on a 33ish gb partition and peppermint is on a 35ish GB partition and there is about 170GB unallocated.
Trying to use gparted to resize partitions but it keeps telling me the partitions are mounted even though they are showing as un mounted in disks.
I am currently using it as my hard drive so it can be viewed but can unplug it and use old hdd to boot to and plug ssd into usb if req.
Also I have created a temporary partition 80ishGB for windoze to use but it an be deleted. Basically what I want to do is have half the ssd for windoze (ntfs) and the other half for peppermint but i'm missing a trick somewhere.

Any help appreciated of course.

General Discussion / That's it I'm done with windows
« on: February 16, 2015, 11:59:49 am »
Had to use windows last night to update the wife's  tablet via Kies.
As it was going to take a while I left it running and went to bed.
In the middle of the night Windows decided to download some updates and without asking or considering what other processes might be running, restart the computer.
This has resulted in a now bricked tablet which will take ages to sort out if I can even do it. If not I'll have to buy her a new one.

Linux Support / Static IP issues (solved)
« on: February 09, 2015, 10:58:39 am »
I have had the same static ip for years now on the pc and everything else is also set to static (both x boxes, both play stations and server (wd cloud)).
Recently I have moved from sky broadband to sky fibre (won't actually be on fibre till 10/2/15) but got the new sky hub last week. Plugged it in and everything worked fine once connected.
This morning I turned the pc on and it wouldn't connect to the internet. It can be seen in the router settings but it can't connect to the internet. I tried making a new connection with a static ip but got the the same results. Made another with dhcp and it worked, but when I ignored ipv 6 it stopped working, change this back to automatic and it worked again.
 I have no idea why it stopped working in the first place, everything else still works.
I have reduced the dhcp pool so to 198.162.254 is free for static ip's.
I can't remember why now but there was a good reason I was on a static ip ( think it was something to do with plex) and would like to return to it if possible.
Any help or advice would be appreciated.
Thanx for reading.

Just set up a static wireless connection with all the same info as the original connection and it worked

How'd it get there and how do I get rid of it?
It is persistent even after a re start.
