Re: Brother printers

I did see the driver install tool. has brother printers been reliable? I have always used HP. just a comment: I have learned to hate HP printers with Linux. I would never, ever, buy one for myself. have tried to keep them running other folk's PCs and it is a struggle... they run fine, and then they...

Re: Why do new people give up on Linux?

It really doesn't matter what the reality is for "we" in the linux community is regarding Photoshop or Office etc. it is the perception by Windows users that the linux alternatives are not satisfactory or worth the effort. Again, my sample size is small and I never personally dealt with an...

Re: Why do new people give up on Linux?

What I have seen from my very small sample size (installed linux for 8 folks frustrated with Windows, 6 have stayed 2 went back) is basically two levels to the issue. Level 1 - Installation: all but one could handle installing linux on their own. That is the first hurdle - if you don't know the diff...

Re: All Desktop Screenshots of 2021

That looks handy but unfortunately BBC weather services are fairly rubbish at the moment, I don't know where the BBC gets it's USA weather but it has been "close enough." Yeah, they predicted 68F the other day and it got up to 70F, so . . . . . . I don't measure wind speed but windy vs no...

Re: Setting up a windows 10 virtual machine

I just did what you are trying to do. The procedure is not that obvious. I was able to successfully install and run Windows 10 in Virtualbox. Here's a link to the video that I followed.

Re: Why do new people give up on Linux?

And what's so bad about trying something, and then deciding it's not for you? Nothing of course - but that is not the question as I see it anyway. I tried sushi when I had an assignment in Japan and decided it was not for me - no problem. The problem as I see it is too many new people think install...

Re: Why do new people give up on Linux?

I hope this does not come out as harsh but new people who give up on linux probably should not have tried it in the first place. Why do we keep comparing apples to oranges (pre-installed Windows/Mac to user installed linux) they are two completely different environmental situations. If a non-technic...

Re: "crashing" loud base noise from speaker

uh-oh I didn't even know I had alsamixer - I did arrowed over to Beep and hit m but must have did something else because now I have no sound.

EDIT: OK I did a reboot and my sound came back - but the m on the Beep didn't fix the problem

Re: "crashing" loud base noise from speaker

Tried the jack and the command you provided - no difference - some videos are worse than others. This is really confusing: I pulled the jack out of the toaster - still got it - so although it is really a low freq it is not the toaster. I pulled the entire Logitech jack from the PC - still got it lik...

Re: "crashing" loud base noise from speaker

It sounds like it is from the toaster only. I don't know what TLP software is so I am pretty sure I don't have it.
I will execute the terminal command you gave me and re-seat the jack in the back of the toaster and see if that helps.

THX for looking at it - I will test and report back.

Re: "crashing" loud base noise from speaker

I should ask, is this sound only at the start? Or does it happen throughout the video? It happens through out - say it's a video reviewing a linux distro - the person will be talking and everything will be fine and then out of nowhere BAHWOOOPH! then normal talking again for a while then it will do...

"crashing" loud base noise from speaker

I know nothing about audio so it is hard for me to explain this issue. I have Logitec PC speakers (two little ones I placed on my desk on either side of my monitors and a Big one about the size of a toaster on the floor) Often while watching a video I will get this loud crashing sound - very annoyin...
