Re: Anyone with A New PCIe x4 M.2 SSD w/ Linux? (Compatibility)

I built a similar system but with Samsung Evo 960 NVMe SSD, and it works beautifully. I have used it ,for the last year or so, with no issues what so ever, also worked in Mint 19 as well as other Linux distros .

Samsung printer no longer working

I have not changed any of default settings in Mint Xfce 19.0 since it has been working fine for me. It is a USB laser CLP 315, Connected via USB. it al...

I am not sure if it has something to do with gstreamer ,like was mentioned in other posts OR it is an issue related to specific none free codecs. If later is the case i will need to st...

Evolution keeps asking for password "SOLVED"

every time i open Evolution program to check my email it keeps asking for my email password, even though it said it will save it in keyring. I have used evolution for a long time and it has not done this before. I do not know what to do, but it kind defeats the purpose if i am going to have to type ...

Have been using evolution for years and I like it a lot . just want to keep it updated.
Does it get updated automatically by mint update or do I need to add a ppa to
