Peppermint / Re: Replace peppermint7 with peppermint9
« on: November 11, 2018, 08:56:38 am »
Thanks Mark for your help. I have to get a new USB 128GB stick which will take a day or two and then I'll get started.


Peppermint / Replace peppermint7 with peppermint9
« on: November 09, 2018, 04:01:13 pm »
Asus UX301 Peppermint 7.

I am in the process of replacing Peppermint 7 with 9. Using 128GB USB stick. I think I have 9 on the stick but cannot proceed further. Have used  Direct download then "Disc Image Writer (Default)" which just gets me back to Direct Download again. I n other words we go round in a circle. What am I doing wrong?

Incidentally, I thought that there would be the option of removing 7 at the same time as installing 9 but so far there has been no indication of that.

Any suggestions?

Not yet.  Peppermint 7 is all I have.

I notice that DIRECT download works from the Users Guide. Can I abort the TORRENT process and use DIRECT as originally intended?

DIRECT istallation would not come up so I used the recmmended TORRENT. Was not offered a choice of REPLACE or ALONGSIDE. I have ended up with a window which refers to a 128 GB disc and instruction to "Restore disc image". Not sure what's going on here.

Before dealing with Libre Office as you suggest I have been considering going from existing Peppermint 7 to 9 in  which case I could defer Libre business until 9 is in. However, if I simply download 9 does it overwrite 7 or do I end up with both?

Your advice on this would be most welcome.

Unfortunately not to my satisfaction. Is it possible to get back to the earlier and much more usable version? I am spending a great deal of time grappling with cmplexities of this version and not getting any real work done. Grateful for any advice.

This is Peppermint7. Recommended updates -small icon bottom right on screen. Generally update about once a month.

Version number 6.1 so far as I can see.
The option for changing "default font" is present but does not work. Have tried it many times. I cannot find the option for changing font on an open spreadsheet.

Hang on! Have just discovered "side bar" under "View" at the top of the spreadsheet window. This provides the operations I was missing. Libre Office is a very difficult system for the uninitiated to manage. Its "help" pages are not much help and it seems impossible to address a direct question.

Sorry to have troubled you. Thanks anyway.

Don't know the version but I have recently downloaded a full set of updates including from Libre Office so should be up to date.
I cannot find the options mentioned.

Lbre Calc has been modified beyond description. I can no longer change font, number style, position in cell to name but a few. I can save which is rather academic since
 I cannot make any changes to my spreadsheet. Calc used to  be easy to use with options offering all the commonly used operations. What is going on?

Printing now operational. Apologies for the delay in replying but gardening season has been upon us. Thanks to all.
