Re: Version 19.1 and printing - confused?

I know nothing about Brother printers, but I've created a short tutorial for installing HP drivers. It includes a section for installing from the LM repo and, for those printers not supported by that driver (the tutorial show how to determine that as well), it includes the step-by-step to install th...

Re: How do I make another drive for data?

You can download gparted-live and burn it to a USB stick (about 325 MB). Then you can boot from that and re-arrange your partitions. This procedure can be risky and you can lose precious data. No need to download anything new; the LM LiveUSB/LiveDVD from which the install was made has gparted insta...

Re: USB formatting software that will remove permissions and wipe?

The gparted application will do all the above: sudo apt install gparted Then run it from your menu. You'll need to enter your password again to start the application. Within the application there are options to: select the device you want to operate on, refresh the list, via a menu option, of device...

Re: How to install custom recovery and rom on android using linux mint

I did a quick google search (parameters: rooting android with linux mint).

As for flashing a custom rom, another quick goog...

Re: Outdated HPLIP driver package for my HP 410 Printer

I did a quick look and found that there is one "410" printer that requires 3.18.7, called "HP Ink Tank Wireless 410". Everything else with "410" in the name requires HPLIP 3.10.9 or older.

Take a look at the post linked in my signature for a couple of ways to get the HP drivers installed.

Re: LMDE 3 is too slow and heavy?

@LuvNix - all I can say is "WOW". If I had encountered that kind of problem I would have dropped LMDE3 and moved on. I have successfully, and without incident, installed LMDE3 (64-bit) on 4 different computers with 4 different CPUs and memory configurations; a couple with SSD and a couple with HDD. ...

Re: Can I install to a SSD?

Just a thought. Can you install the iso to a small boot partition at the top of the SSD, boot from it, then install to the rest of the drive? Yes - see post from gm10, above. A quick Google search (parameters: linux boot from iso on disk) returns lots for results. As an example page see this one or...

Re: Can I install to a SSD?

SSD ==> Solid State Drive

This is a functional replacement for spinning hard drives and are a complete (and much more reliable) replacement for hard drives.

Installing LM to an SSD uses the same process as would be used to install to an HDD - I have a number of computers that have SSDs.

With knowledge of the IP address of your printer, trying pinging it from you LM computer. If you don't get a response back from the printer, then you have some...

Re: SSD drive

If you are talking about a SATA SSD, in terms of hardware connections it's just like any other drive; you'll need a SATA connector and a power connector. Most (maybe all?) SATA SSDs look just like an SATA HDD to Linux - so there's no worries there either. If you are talking about something other tha...
