Hope it all goes/went well, but any problems .. you know where to come ;)

I'd be VERY surprised if you don't prefer it to Linpus .. but let me know.

[EDIT]

I've edited the first part of the PeppermintOS tutorial to reflect your problems with the newer version of Universal USB Installer:

Glad you like it .. IMHO, PeppermintOS makes Linpus look silly, and is SO much easier to use.

Also glad to hear the tutorial was helpful :)

Open NetworkManager and delete your wireless connection.

then set up your wireless connection again .. if at ANY time (whilst setting up the wireless connection again) it asks for a "keyring" password .. leave it blank .. it will complain about "unsafe storage", but accept it anyway.

no luck with this one
on peppermints site it says they "don’t recommend connecting automatically" and if you do, a keyring password request will pop up.
i deleted connection but when i re stalled connection the only key i had to give was the router key,

It hasn't popped up on mine ???

Do you want to try fix the keyring password AND keep auto login ? (see fix below)

or

Disable the auto login ? (if you'd rather have to enter your password each login, let me know and I'll tell you how)



To fix the wireless "keyring" password

If you haven't already .. do whatever you have to do to get a working wireless connection that prompts you for the "keyring"password every time you boot .. boot, and enter your keyring password so you are connected.

Then open a terminal and run this command:
Code: [Select]
mv -v ~/.gnome2/keyrings/default.keyring ~/.gnome2/keyrings/default.keyring.old

Expected output from that command =
Quote
'/home/<username>/.gnome2/keyrings/default.keyring' -> '/home/<username>/.gnome2/keyrings/default.keyring.old'


If that command runs without error .. REBOOT.

When your system restarts, you will be prompted by "Authentication required by wireless network" .. enter your WEP or WPA key, and click the "Connect" button.

You will THEN be prompted to "Choose password for new keyring" .. leave BOTH fields BLANK, and click the "OK" button.

You will then be warned about "Store passwords unencrypted?" .. click the "Use Unsafe Storage" button.

You should not be prompted for a keyring password for wireless again. :)
