I currently have wireless connection to a Linksys WRT 54-G wireless router to the Internet. I also connect w...

Libre Office Writer

How do I make my font selection the default font? LibreOffice Writer 5.1.6.2. Mint 18 Cinnamon. Liberation Serif appears to be the default. I select Noto Sans, type text, make a space, tab, or new sentence and Liberation Serif comes back up. This is very annoying. I would be happy if I got the font ...

On the extra laptop running 18.0 Cinnamon 64bit that has not been updated in several months the same USB stick appears on the desktop. Whats different? One laptop is fully updated....

USB Stick Not appear

Linux Cinnamon 18. USB sticks do not appear on the desktop after I insert them. They do appear in "Computer" after I click on it on the desktop. Now I have to go through several steps to open the stick instead of just clicking on it on the desktop. Is this by design? I booted up an extra 1...

Upgrade from LTS

If one upgrades from Mint XX to Mint XX.1 is the install still LTS, or does one need to upgrade from XX.1 to XX.2 and so on?. My impression is that Mint XX LTS is good to inspiration date if updates are maintained and that upgrading to .2,, .3, etc just adds bells and whistles? Am I correct?

Re: Live Session on Mac

I just booted 2 DVD's and 1 USB stick of mint cinnamon 18 64bit on my Dell Inspiron laptop that were created using K3b. Until recently I always did that from the command line. I run mint cinnamon on that laptop. So, I do not think K3b is the problem unless the programs you mentioned add something sp...

Re: Live Session on Mac

Can't be a 2013 because 2012 was the last year that Macbooks had dvd drives. I stand corrected, it is a 2007. Don't know where I got 2013 from. Maybe from the person that gave it to me. Anyway, as Fabien said, download the ISO from the official Mint page and use something like Unetbootin to burn it...

Re: Live Session on Mac

Mint for Mac. Neither DVD or USB stick are recognized my Mac. I burned linuxmint-18-cinnamon-64bit-mac-mattgadient.com.iso to DVD. ()Instructions say it will not work w/USB stick. It did boot. Mint came up slowly. I began to wonder if it would open to live session or directly to install so I turned ...

Re: Live Session on Mac

Hum, looks like the machine doesnt recognise your DVD as bootable. Maybe you will get better luck with a USB. Burn the live USB with Rufus (from windows), or mintstick (from Linux Mint, it's already installed by default), or unetbootin (from OSX). Error mounting USB stick. dmesg | tail [233842.4425...

Re: HP Office Jet 6500

The latest version of hplip is already installed. I tried connecting the printer to my laptop using Ethernet cable. The laptop does not see it but does see my HP Lazerjet 1100 if I connect with a USB X printer port cable. I have never connected a printer to my router before. Maybe I should connect t...
