Hi Melissa

If you still want help getting your scanner working post back and we'll get cracking

General Discussion / Re: Gramps 5.1.1
« on: November 05, 2019, 09:09:39 am »
The best & easiest way would be to install it from the repos, but if that's not the version you want you can get the latest version (5.1.1) from here
https://github.com/gramps-project/gramps/releases/v5.1.1 near the bottom of the page select gramps_5.1.1-1_all.deb

Remember to make a backup of your existing database first

Good luck

Peppermint / Re: DVD Drive problem

I always forget how to do it I can do it if I'm sitting at the PC but I can never explain it, anyway here's easy to follow instructions courtasy of Mark from the peppermint forums


Quote
Boot to the Peppermint 9 or 10 LiveUSB .. when you get to the screen where it offers you "Try Peppermint" and "Install Peppermint" ..  hit the "Tab" key

You'll then see some white writing at the bottom of screen that ends with:-

quiet splash --

Instead make it end with:-

quiet splash nomodeset --

then hit enter to continue booting.

Did that allow you to boot ?


Good luck

Personally to me either would be good they're both great distros, but if I had to make a choice I would opt for the latest version unless you had a good reason not to, but that's just my personal opinion

Good luck whichever way you go

Hi Degsy

Your boot menu won't usually show the USB option unless there's a USB drive plugged in


Good luck

Hi Melissa

I used to use that scanner which I'm sure is based on a Mustek Bearpaw and in order to get it working I had to place a firmware file at /usr/share/sane/gt68xx,

If so I have a copy of that file if you need it

Have you used it, Graeme?

No Keith I haven't as I said in an earlier post my power adaptor packed up so I can't try anything at the moment, but from what i can see it will run on 32bit non PAE processors, so I'm just putting some suggestions out there

No harm trying it what have you got to lose,

Hi Keith I managed to download Debian Mate .iso  and for the life of me I can't find from where now anyway have a look at Debian Lite the download link downloads a .iso might be worth a try   

https://sourceforge.net/projects/liveisocd/


Good luck

Hi Keith

What about Debian-Mate

https://sourceforge.net/projects/debianmate/

I downloaded the .iso to try on my D600 then the power adaptor gave up the ghost (how's that for shit luck)   >:( anyway it  looks quite hopeful

Good luck

Peppermint / Re: Peppermint 8/9 live USB not responding [partly solved]
« on: February 01, 2019, 07:24:47 pm »
Hi Keith

I could be wrong but I'm quite certain Peppermint 8 will not install on a non PAE kernel although there may be a way round it

the way to know if your processor is PAE capable is type at the terminal

Code: [Select]
cat /proc/cpuinfo

check alongside flags for pae as per screenshot


My interest in this lies in the fact I have an old Dell Latitude D600 and I couldn't get Peppermint to install on it due to the PAE thing and I eventually installed Bodhi which offered a non PAE version at the time which I'm sure was well before Peppermint 8, Bodhi works ok but if there a way to run a supported version of Peppermint I would rather go down that route

IIRC Peppermint 7 and 8 had an i386 kernel and not i686, and they're supported until 2021 .. I can let you know for sure later.

But don't they require PAE ?
