LOL.

Thanks. That did it. It never occured to me that I hadn't rebooted in a couple months. :D

Re: How to upgrade to Linux Mint 19.1

I looked in that menu. The only menu items are Preferences, System Snapshots, Software Sources. :(

Re: HP LaserJet M1217nfw MFP only prints blanks [Solved]

Just an update: this works for me. I burnt a fresh ISO of the latest Linux Mint and installed it over the borked install. I then removed all the hidden ("." files) from my ~/ home directory and ran hp-setup. (I had to install the GUI version of hp-setup to get it to work.) Works fine now without ins...

Re: HP LaserJet M1217nfw MFP only prints blanks

Thanks for helping find the problem! I did "hp-uninstall" as well, to get rid of the 3.18.7 bits (since it wasn't installed via synaptic. I then install hplip via synaptic. Unfortunately, I think I may have borked that part of the system. :? $ hp-check Saving output in log file: /home/karthik/hp-che...

Re: HP LaserJet M1217nfw MFP only prints blanks

As an update: Printer still only prints blanks when hooked up to my Linux Mint desktop. When hooked into my MacBook it prints fine. I then used the MacBook to install a firmware update (release 20180302), then tried printing on the Linux Mint desktop. Still prints blank pages on Linux Mint, but prin...

My HP LaserJet M1217 (combination laser printer, scanner, fax machine) has been working with Linux Mint for years. I recently had a slew of problems with my LinuxMint install and initially did a clean install of LinuxMint19. The printer would not print at all. So I wiped my / and did a clean install...

Bump.

Surely someone else has requested this? Or am I not using the right vocabulary?

Applet to show all documents?

Is there a applet (spice?) for Linux Mint to show all the contents of the documents folder without opening up a Nemo instance?

Kind of like how OS X by default has an icon on the lower right which opens the documents folder to quickly navigate to a file without opening Finder.

Re: HP Laserjet m1217nfw

Yes. I tried unplugging and replugging the printer. The printer shows up under 'lsusb', so I would think it's seen by the OS.
