[SOLVED] Re: Keymapping gone wild

Thanks, Welcome. I had gone through all of the keymappings in the Shortcuts, but nothing said Shift or Ctrl. After a few false starts, I found a solution. The config file that has the keymapping in question is .cinnamon/configs/grouped-window-list@cinnamon.org/2.json. I opened the file and searched ...

Keymapping gone wild

Hi, I'm using LM 19.3 with Cinnamon and something has gone awry with my keymapping. Every time I hit either the left Shift or the left Ctrl, a preview window pops up from the panel. If I mouse over it, it will go away, but it's annoying. I think I may have screwed up a keymapping, but I don't know h...

Re: dvda-author

Thank you, this is good advice. However, I'm running into some dependency issues and I'm not sure where to go to solve them. Here's what I got when trying to install into LM18.3: ~/Downloads $ sudo apt install ./qdvdauthor_2.3.1-12_amd64.deb Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Rea...

Re: hplip, hp officejet pro 9025 <SOLVED>

I had a similar problem, just bought the same model. The OfficeJet Pro 9025 is not supported by hplip yet, according to their list of supported printers.

dvda-author

Has anyone had any luck in installing and configuring dvda-author in Mint? I finally got the program to compile from source after fixing many broken dependencies, but I can't get the dvda-author-gui to install. Alternately, does anyone know any dvd-audio programs for Linux besides dvd-author?

New Install of Linux Mint 18 x64 Cinnamon Freezing

I'm having the same problem many seem to be having and there are no solutions posted that I can see. I tried upgrading the Mint 17.3 through mintupgrade, but it would never reboot. So I did a fresh installation of Mint 18 x64 Cinnamon. It seemed to boot okay, but it freezes pretty much randomly and ...

Re: income Tax Software

Tax law is so amazingly complicated, I can't imagine that an open source program could reliably keep up with all of the changes. Then again, it's kind of hard to tell if Turbo Tax or H&R Block or TaxACT have holes in their programs as well. You would need an army of accountants and tax lawyers t...

Re: mint 16 upgrade

passerby, just wanted to thank you for your advice above. I hadn't made a /home partition when I installed Mint, so I was nervous about the upgrade to Mint 16. But your instructions were perfect and made it easy with no losses. Thanks again!
