Re: REFRESH UPDATES Unable to

Confirm it is fixed for me, from the earlier link

'sudo rm /var/lib/apt/lists/* -vf' removes all the list files and 'sudo apt-get update' then causes Mint to download fresh copies.

and refresh does not error :D

Re: REFRESH UPDATES Unable to

I have the same problem on my Desktop running Mint 19.1. I have changed the sites but refresh still fails, says check internet connection, but everything else works fine regarding internet access.
My laptop running Mint 18.1 updates fine.

Been using Mint for quite a while, currently 19.1 with Cinnamon 4.09 I recently screwed up my panel and so used panel > Troubleshoot > Reset all settings to default.

Synaptic does not list it, apt-get remove franz says package not found, but sudo find / -iname franz* returns load of .png, .svg and other files I have looked on t...

Re: Cannot install driver for Brother mfc j4410dw Printer

The printer is only about 3 years old. I did some more searching and investigation and I seem to have fixed it. I had selected the 'cupswrapper_driver' from the Brother site, that was giving me the error when I tried to install it. I tried downloading the 'LPR_Driver' and installed that, I was then ...

FreeCAD Crash on .svg import

This looks to me like a Mint 19 issue, so is there a better place to report it? I am running FreeCAD on Mint 19 Cinnamon and it is crashing. I still have Mint 18 on my laptop and I can run it successfully on that. I am experiencing a crash when I import a .svg file. Tried on FreeCAD 0.18 AppImage an...

Re: HP 5510 Printer - Settings Conflict

Just tried installing following that link. If I select print from an application, eg xviewer, it uses CUPS and allows me to select plain paper or slide transparency. They give very poor results on photo paper. I can also open the HPLIP Toolbox, there I can select photo paper, but any attempt to prin...

Re: Startup problem

Thanks for the replies and suggestions. I have made the changes and as the problem is not reproducible I just have to wait and see if it happens again.
