Re: ¿archivos con malware?

Hola,
La mayoría de los virus del mundo no infectan las máquinas de linux. Aquí hay un buen artículo sobre el tema.
Desafortunadamente sólo está en inglés, así que tendrás que traducirlo. Yo uso el traductor Deep L. Buena suerte.

Re: [SOLVED] Calibre Will Not Open

I think this is caused by the Python3 recent update to version 3.8.5. Calibre 4.99.4 works fine with previous Python3 version 3.8.2. Ubuntu maintainer for Calibre probably needs to bump the Calibre version to 5.x make it work with newer Python3 version. +1 for them updating to newer version of Cali...

Re: Add printer problem

If your using Mint 19.1 you should upgrade before trying to add printer. You should be at 19.3 at least.

Re: HP ENVY 5530 standing in "processing page"

I have an envy 5530 here and it works great in Wireless mode. I would install hplip-gui from synaptic Then run it (in the menu It will be listed as Hp toolbox.) Install the printer via that and see if it works. If I remember right there has always been a bug in printing the test page. If you go with...

Re: What is the trick to get HPLIB to work?

Another good set up tool is hplip-gui found in the repository. Set the printer to a fixed ip address it should be outside the normal DHCP address struture say in the 200 area would look similar to this 192.168,1.215 and use hplip-gui to set it up. That should work and simple scan should find the sca...

Re: Many Admin Programs wont Run

If Pbears suggestion is not possible. Because you don't have a timeshift backup, then I would back up all important files and do a re install. I'm not sure either what may have corrupted the users groups but it may be that is the case. Of course you can create another user and continue to use the sy...

Re: I'm using linux mint xfce , what do you suggest me to do for running newer kernel ?

Is it Mint 20?
and is everything working well with the current kernel?
If so just keep that kernel updated and you'll be fine.
No need to change unless you have hardware issues.

Re: Many Admin Programs wont Run

Hello Ellis, Are you using the same user name that you originally installed with? It sounds like somehow your user is different that the one that had permission to act as administrator. If by any chance you've added a new user you need to make sure that that user is part of the root group. You can d...

Re: Is there a Kindle platform for Linux?

I also use Calibre to read my digital books. Works quite well. Calibre 5 even lets you highlight which is helpful for me. Unfortunately Amazon has not released it's reader in Linux format. A MS type move to try to get you to buy their expensive Hardware :( good luck in your search for an alternative.
