You have to get the manual for that router and follow it's instruction on getting your printer working. It's usually not as straight forward as an ip adress.
I have done that already and it didn't work.

Not able to install Printer connected to USB router

Hi guys, I have a HP Laser Jet P1102. It is installed on my computer so when I connect it directly with the USB everything is fine. Now I connected the USB directly to my router Bbox Fast5330b-r1 and in the setup page of the router I see the printer and all seems fine (however the page doesn't show ...

Re: Snapping tool

I think at that time I found the solution, but I don't remember what.
If not mistaken it was an extra simple software where you could set the size of the windows snapped and lots of stuff. but honestly I do not remember what it was .

Re: Network manager doesn't start

i tried to use also timeshift but I'm having the same problem.
Moreover now even after the manual restart I can't connect to new networks. It's really weird.

you need to: first

Code: Select all

apt update
many times the answer is in the error

also with this it didn't work.
Is there any command I can try to check why network manager is not starting at the startup?

Network manager doesn't start

I just updated the kernel from 4.18 to 5.00 and upon startup, the network manager doesn't start.
I have to manually give the command

Code: Select all

sudo service network-manager restart
and then it works.

Any way I can check what's the problem?

Re: Converting VHS to digital

Hi overkill22, That is a bummer, perhaps you can send it back for a refund because Amazon.com is great with that? I would highly recommend getting a device like the one below that does not even require a computer to convert VHS and other video sources with video and audio cables (camcorders, etc......

Re: Converting VHS to digital

An update to this topic.

I bought a cheap converter card like this https://amzn.to/2ZvtcD6 and the result truly sucks. I've cleaned the VHS head but still the quality was really really low.
I'm still looking for an acceptable solution that won't cost me hundreds of dollars.

How can I change the selection colour?

I have mint 18.2 and would like to change the accent color.
At the moment it is blue, and it's the highlighting, and buttons highlight in nemo etc.

I can't find a way to change this setting system-wide.

Re: Update Manager, auto refresh options

You understand it correctly, or mostly: the first one runs after starting Update Manager, not boot, although that's usually the same thing. While you can and should set the "First" timer to all zero (0) to disable it, currently the second timer doesn't keep state, meaning it will start co...

Update Manager, auto refresh options

In Update Manager > Preferences > Auto-refresh there are few options, I'm not sure how they work. 1) First, refresh the list of updates after dd:hh:mm > is this related to every boot of the computer? Like, when you on the computer, it will check the updates after dd:hh:mm ? 2) Then, refresh the list...

Re: Burn in problem on the screen

After using the laptop for a while the problem goes away. That would tend to indicate the problems is not screen burn. Screen burn used to occur predominantly on CRT monochrome screens that displayed a largely static image all day every day. With the advent of colour screens the problems was minimi...

Re: Wifi 5GHz on linux mint 19

Normally the iw reg get will show 00 for a code which is generic and may limit what 5GHz channels are used, do iwlist chan to see what channels you can use, you may find the channel used by your router is not in the list and setting your country code might fix it I can't understand the results I'm ...

Re: Wifi 5GHz on linux mint 19

are you using a router that is dual band (both 2.4 and 5ghz compatiable?)...if so, have you accessed the router to see what is connecting with each device either 2.4 or 5? yes, the router is dual band and everything is set up correctly from that end. In fact I'm connected to the 5GHz with my phone....

I always overlooked at this but now I'd like to give a try and see if there's any difference. Is there anything I have to do to enable the 5Ghz? Networ...
