It started when I installed peppermint 8.  I used an older version of mint before (worked OK) but the newer versions are to heavy for the Dual core CPU so changed to peppermint.

Yesterday was typical.....  streamed over the LAN a 2 hour video presentation - then set up a new 200 photo presentation and it froze after one hour the presentation is shown continuously.

Another interesting point is the system time in the bios it is always 2 hours behind the computer time.  If I change the system time in the bios and check the following day it has returned to 2 hours behind.   I have checked the bios battery and it is OK.

Has it always done this, or is this new .. maybe after a kernel update ?

Looks like it doesn't need to be "installed" as much as it's just run from the extracted folder.

So yeah try it .. getting rid is theoretically as simple as deleting the extracted folder.

At the login screen hit Ctrl+Alt+F2, are you able to log on in text mode ?

If you run:
Code: [Select]
df -h
are any of the partitions full ?

If you can log on in text mode, do you get any error if you run:
Code: [Select]
sudo service lightdm restart

Hi Mark,
I would like to install lightburn on my linux computer, it comes with the following info.

Linux Installation
1. Open a terminal and run the following command:
sudo adduser $USER dialout && sudo adduser $USER tty
2. IMPORTANT! Log out and log back in (this refreshes the permissions we just added)
3. Download the Linux 64-bit version
4. Extract the folder wherever you want Lightburn to exist
5. Double click AppRun inside your Lightburn folder

Is this ok to install ?? I don't like to install anything and then come back here to get un-install advice when it doesn't work, or should I just try and see what happens ??

I am unable to access Linux mint because it no longer accepts the password. It does not come back with an error (invalid) so what I input is correct but Linux does not start up. I cannot get into anything to fix the problem, I am having to use windows to send this message, thankfully I have retained a dual boot option.
Advise on this problem would be most welcome, thanks

Peppermint 8 64bit SAMSUNG R60 plus

Sometimes the computer will just freeze.   Keyboard and mouse stop working but screen and rest of system seems OK.

Tested RAM and HD and file system all show as OK Temp also OK.

So anyone have any clues why it should just freeze?

This can even happen when system is idle just showing the desktop with CPU at just 5% use.
