Hardware Compatibility / Re: I'm a Broken man!

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.

Do you have a link please.

So I can take a look.

A platform is like an up market forum that may also include chatrooms.

The ability to restrict access to different areas of the site to different levels of membership is important.

I have experience of setting up websites using a range of windows software packages.

Would prefer to move to Linux software package for this new project.

We are looking for a software package that works with Linux (also windows would be an advantage).

We want to set up a platform with a number of subject rooms up to 20. User security is of importance as is the look of the finished site.

We need something that looks as if it is modern and we are willing to pay a small fee for the right software.

Any suggestions or recommendations welcome.

Thank you.

General Help & Advice / Presentation freezes
« on: December 04, 2018, 11:40:21 am »
SAMSUNG R60plus using a recent version of Peppermint 64bit.

I use this computer to display a revolving photographic selection around 200 photos.

After about an hour of operation it freezes on one photo and all keys on the keyboard and the mouse are also frozen.

The only option is to restart I have tried using both the software options that come with Peppermint.

Any suggestion please.

Today it ran for 2hours using a different software for the slideshow then it again just froze.  I was checking the GPU temp and it was normal the system just stops responding.

Anyone have any thoughts.

Doing this opens the older version but the newer version is still on my computer.

All the desktop icons open the newer version.

I want to remove the newer version by installing the 52.9.1 version how do I do this?
