but it hasn't done anything, can you run me through how to update to peppermint 3? installing Peppermint 3 is going to completely erase your SSD and replace the Linpus Lite operating system with Peppermint. Though there's a possibility that unetbootin will work in Linpus Lite ..
you can download unetbootin here: you'll need to mark it as executable Have you got access to a Windows PC ? or do you want instructions to try unetbootin on Linpus Lite ?
I don't know about later versions, but if you want to give the latest a go I'm willing to help ?
For Acer Aspire One, there is probably nothing better than Ubuntu Easy Peasy.
Everything works out the box: wireless, camera, codecs are preinstalled, flash is preinstalled and it has Firefox 3, Open Office 3, Pidgin, VLC and Songbird!!! It really rocks The installation is really easy and in case you have a question, everyone in the forums can help you, since Ubuntu (on which it is based) is probably the most popular Linux distribution.
i have downloaded 'firefox -3.0.10bz2' but when i click 'open' from the firefox 'downloads' window, another window opens saying 'the patch file does not available' (sic) if i open the above file with 'xarchiver' (the defult opening program) i get a long list of file names with endings: .gif, .html, .png, .properties,
can some one please help Many thanks DH Linpus Lite is very limited(some would say crippled...) and I recommend replacing it with a real Linux distribution.
Anyone know why this is happening and/or which of the 62 updates is causing this?
I basically cannot update my OS until it gets fixed or I know which one it is and can check it off the update list.Shut down your Aspire One and insert the external USB CD-ROM or the USB stick that we just used. Connect your Aspire One to the internet using a wired connection. With the bootable USB stick created, choose the USB HDD option.This will boot you to the USB CD-ROM/Live USB stick, and allow you to install Ubuntu.acerhdf is supposed to be in the kernel since 2.6.x. Generally everything works the same with the other Ubuntu variants of (e.g., Kubuntu, Xubuntu).This guide assumes you will use gedit as your text editor. Select your capturing line and decrease volume of the left or the right channel to zero by pressing Z or C (see man alsamixer to view other keys). (NOTE: It is also possible to install directly from network, which makes USB devices unneeded.which has VERY easy (couple of clicks) access to all the latest software ..
