I'm afraid that's not possible (or at least not easily) .. the LXDE desktop is controlled by PCManFM (file manager) which doesn't support monitoring of the /media directory for mounts becoming available .. all PCManFM does if reflect what's contained in your ~/Desktop directory.One of the "bells and whistles" you get with heavier desktops .. but Peppermint is meant to be "light" .. if bells and whistles are what you require, then Mint may be a better option
Are there no brightness keys .. USUALLY a second function of some other key on the keyboard, and usually signified with symbol of a "filled in" sun for brighten, and a hollow sun for dim.eg.On my acer aspire one, I'd hitFn+Left Arrow = BrightenThanks my inspiron mini Dell aahs those sun keys too- never noticed them before!orFn+Right Arrow = DimBut the keys may be different on your dell netbook (may be on the "F" keys)
Still not got that new HD put in- not had the money to pay the LUG guys or the PC man.If you're anywhere near Birmingham, or can get here, I'll sort it out for you for free.
at LUG they were talking about cloning my system and re installing after the new HD is put in by PC man ( he isn't Linux savvy)- but wouldn't it be easier to just save my bookmarks and folders on the Maxtor, install Mint fresh and then add my bookmarks and folders?
Unless you have some method of attaching both the new and old hard drives to the PC at the same time .. you CANNOT clone the drive.So a fresh install is your only option.Unless of course the guysd at the LUG have an external hard drive enclosure they can use for the cloning operation.Make sense now ?
