General Help & Advice / Sticky Notes not working after upgrade
« on: March 11, 2019, 02:58:13 pm »
Mint 18.3 cinnamon 64bit - I upgraded from version 18.2 and when I booted this morning "Sticky Notes" failed to start.

I was asked to check if I had the latest version which I do only updated this month.

 No one had reported the same problem with mint18.3 with this taskbar app.

I was also told to check the system log but I can not find it.

Any help would be appreciated.

Peppermint / Re: Home , Trash and other desktop icons (resolved)
« on: February 04, 2019, 01:40:35 pm »
I found the setting in the end it was not easy.

Would think that most users want these icons on the desktop by default. Just something to think about.

Peppermint 8 64bit

As I have done a clean install and I can not find the setting to place the Home, Computer, Trash and Network icons on the desk top.

I had them before............  I tried looking under file settings no joy.

Help please.

It now seems to be working OK so marked as resolved.

Hi Mark

I have resolved this by doing a clean install of Peppermint 8 64bit.

Now working OK but how do I prevent the Kernel being updated?

Thanks so far for your suggestions.

I would not give up just yet.  I am running a windows 7 and mint 18.2 64bit desk top with very few problems.

Mark would it be a good plan to find out the specs of the system and try a number of live USBs to see which version of Linux is the best.

For me I always find windows takes longer to start then mint.

I have updated the information you requested.

Could any of the fixes at this site help.

I am using peppermint 8 64bit

We previously installed this wifi adapter and it was working fine.

I have not used the wifi for around 8 months but need to use it this coming week so plugged it in and the adapter  was not seen by the system.

There have been 2 Kernel updates since it was installed and just to see I booted using the original Kernel and the adapter was working OK again.
How do I make it work with the new Kernel or do I need to remove the new kernels and if so how do I remove them or force the system to boot from the original.

As always any help would be appreciated.

General Help & Advice / Re: Need to update fixed version of wine
« on: December 13, 2018, 02:10:40 pm »
I am not sure that is the case as my Play on Linux asks if I wont to create a 64bit or 32bit virtual drive.

Thus I presume that wine is available in both 64bit and 32bit versions.

You helped me to install the present version so that I could install office 2007 and the version has been fixed since that time and I am never offered Wine updates.

I have 6 programs installed using this version of wine and I want to keep them.  So how do I install a newer 32bit version of Wine that is the question.

Running mint 18.2 64bit cinnamon

Some years ago I got instruction on this forum how to install a 32bit version of wine on my 64bit system.

The wine version has been fixed since that time.

Now to install a new version of MS office I need to install a newer version of wine.

How do I install a newer version whilst keeping it the 32bit version of wine?

Thank you in advance for your assistance.

Thanks for this I have seen this software before,
What is a VPS webserver?

Is it possible to test this type of software by uploading it to an existing server such as the one where our website is hosted?

I do not want to pay for a VPS if the project is not going ahead and it will only go ahead if I can demonstrate what the software offers.
