XSane give Out of memory error - Fixed

I upgraded to Mint 20 a little while back, clean install. This is the first time I have tried to use my scanner. I installed XSane, it finds my scanner, Brother DCP-J7720W which is wireless connected. It appears to scan but the viewer screen does not show anything and if I save the file I get Error ...

SSD & Hard Drive Install Recomendations

I am about to rebuild my system on Mint20 Cinnamon, with a 480Gb SSD and a 4Tb hard drive. Previously I have installed on the SSD and then set /home to be on the hard disk. This worked fairly well, but I did have a problem (unresolved) which looked like my user setup, which had carried over from pre...

Re: How to get newer version of Eric IDE

It looks like that will install 20.2, which is the version available in Mint20 anyway. I need to get to a newer version.
Thanks anyway.

Re: Unison File Sync Fails - Fixed

From some help I had here https://github.com/bcpierce00/unison/issues/337 I have resolved the problem. It seems that Unison is compiled differently on Mint20 and Ubuntu server, and they are compiled with different versions of OCaml, even though they both result in the same Unison version. I fixed it...

Delete File is Slow

Over the last week or so I have noticed that some things have slowed down a lot. Booting seems to take twice as long as it used to and deleting a file is considerable slower. It takes about 4 seconds from hitting the delete key for the file to disappear. Just tried this with an empty file and with a...

'Open with' has multiple entries of some programs

Running 19.1 Cinnamon When opening a file, if I select 'Open with', under Other Applications some applications are listed multiple times, e.g. Banshee is listed 3 times, Krita 12 times, Okular 13 times. Some others are just listed once as I would expect. Why is that? Is it using additional resources...

Brother Ink Jet Colour Profile

When I process pictures from my camera, using DarkTable, the results generally look OK on screen, but when I print them the print is significantly darker than the screen image. From the research I have done I suspect that I need to set the colour profile for the printer. When I print, in the printer...

Re: Screensaver has stopped working

No. My screen doesn't lock up at all, nothing happens, as I said it is set to 10 minutes but I can leave it for hours and the screen is still on and I can just carry on working.
Any ideas?
