Mouse not working

I have an Acer 5515 that the mouse has not worked for a couple years. I have used a USB track ball mouse. It has been intermittent recently and now no longer recognized. The pointer is stuck in one spot. I un plug, plug back in and move the track ball and no response. I have two track ball units. I ...

Re: Landing on a street

Having worked for a helicopter company company for many years, a couple pilots also had single engine aircraft and did comment that a small plane going down was some times was pilot error. There are components that can act up, fail. On a car, might not be a big deal but on an aircraft will be a big ...

Re: Landing on a street

For one thing, the pilot is not a MORON if he had plenty of fuel and had checked out the plane properly before taking off.
The aircraft had a fuel system issue.
The FAA will do a full investigation and make the results public.
Then we can state our opinions.

Landing on a street

Since this is Open chat. He walked away with his plane. I think the car on the right was concerned about what he or she saw in the rear view mirrors. You can Google the issue. Cop saw plane, did a quick U turn, lights on. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pkOg9qh3unM&feature=youtu.be&fbclid=IwAR2QE9Nl...

Re: touchpad not working for acer aspire 3

I might try that. My touchpad quit working a couple years ago on my Acer 5515. I plug in my track ball mouse and it works fine.
I cannot update Cinnamon anymore.

Re: Reverting back to Windows 10

I gave up worrying about that issue at least three years ago when I bought a new HP laptop with W10. Almost impossible to dual boot so I left it alone. Good for iPhone and iPad.
My Acer 5515 with Mint does just fine.

Re: Tea or Coffee?

I do remember my early days of black coffee. about twenty years old, when I was in the US Navy aboard a three hundred foot radar picket destroyer in the North Atlantic in the early 1960's. Never worried about milk or sugar. Quite something going up a steep stairway, called a ladder with the bow of t...

Sometimes coffee in the morning but Mint tea in the evening with a of teaspoon honey from a local Apiary. I buy my tea by the batch from Amazon. Many years ago I use to grow my own Mint but had to contain it. It could could spread. It was great to simmer the leaves right off the vine in boiling wate...

Re: Looking for a primer on the Linux family tree

I have been happy with Mint since Mint 6. It does everything I want. I do have an issue with upgrading Mint 19 right now. Something about a better log in. It does not like my user name and password but I digress. I am using an older Acer 5515 laptop which still works fine. I also use a HP laptop wit...

Re: Windows 10 vs Linux Mint

I still use W10 on one laptop and Mint on another laptop.
I need W10 for Apple music, iPhone and iPad. Mint does not handle it.
W10 runs just fine if you know what you are doing.

Re: A little help/info needed with free old telescope I got..

Might not be any help but did you try using searches with Google or another search engine?
It has been maybe thirty or more years since I did any research about telescopes.

I cannot say it has ever been an issue for me. Google has been my best friend for many years.
Generally the term is quite obvious, well to me, anyway.

Right now I do not have a new hobby but a new goal, to get back into shape. Last October 29th, I opened my eyes and looked up at a doctor lifting his hands off my chest telling me my heart had stopped for quite a few seconds. I essentially died for fifteen seconds. I was laid out for two months and ...

Re: Who can help where to find a wired mouse, which cord doesnt get entangled?

I use a wireless Bluetooth Logitech with my W10 PC. It uses a single AA battery. I never turn off the mouse. Battery last well over a year. Probably longer.
The cord Logitech with my Mint PC.
Both computers stay at home.
Outside, iPhone and iPad.
