Re: Can't access Windows files [Solved]

You hit it right on ralplpcr! Had a bit of time this a.m., so i wiped the installation, created partitions with GParted (made smaller swap), tried to open Windows folder as before - still no go. So, after re-reading your last post, i opened Nemo and was able to access it this time. Thumbs up to you ...

AFAIK, XSane or Simple Scan don't work with HP printers.

Thanks a bunch! :D

Windows 7 is active.
Forgot to mention, dual-booting on one hard (SSD) drive.

Re: Installation of HP all-in-one scanner

Might be a long shot but hey!

Had long running issue with not getting HP LaserJet 1018 to work with Arch (Manjaro and Antergos) until someone suggested i type "hp-plugin" into terminal.
Without brackets of course, and it worked!

Can't access Windows files [Solved]

Installed Cinnamon dual-boot with Windows 7 and it is first time that i can't access Windows files via a Linux distro.

Have Dropbox on Windows and don't want to install it in Linux (space issue on disk).

How to divide SSD for Win7 + LM dual boot?

Have 120G SSD with Win7 (including programs and data) and now have 51% room to spare for dual booting with LinuxMint.

Having read elsewhere it would seem that there really isn't any room for anything else than Windows 7 at this time.

Anybody else in same predicament?

Re: Future of Firefox Australis and LinuxMint

On the brightside of things, thanks to CTR and a friends tip here, i was able to finally get my star back! :) On the darkside of things, prior to that, i went to "customize" to see where those stars were and not a single option was available. Tried twice (restart) and still no go. Must be a conflict...

Re: Returning to Windows 7 after Mint Test

Evidently, this guy is not interested in your replies guys. No "thank you" is a bad sign. BTW, i had found an .iso for Windows 7 to download on SuperUser - took a while to find it, maybe it's not there anymore. Anyway, if a Windows 7 user doesn't know by now that he/she or both (ha!) has to make a b...

Re: What LinuxMint alternatives to Windows Search?
