Re: Help to install Latest HPLIP version

I used the auto install from HP and followed all the prompts and it looked successful but when I tried to print from the printer, it would not respond. Just to make sure, connected the printer with the same USB cable to my win7 pc and all worked fine. Any ideas? When I enter in the terminal dpkg -l ...

Re: Help to install Latest HPLIP version

Hello Karl,

As always, thank you for your help. I was in a little bit of a bind and posted without searching, so I am very grateful for your response. I will give it a go and see if I can get it installed and my new printer working!

What is the Best Mobile Phone Website Emulator?

I'm looking for a mobile phone website emulator to see how a website would look on different mobile phones.
Anyone know of an accurate one? The ones I see don't seem to accurately reflect the way most mobile phones
reduce the website size in their phones.

Read where?

Doesn't work for dualboot.
Both systems would have to be booted.

Tell us more.
Win-7 and Linux are on two separate PC's that I have.

How to use FileZilla between Linux and Win7 Machine

Is there a tutorial somewhere on how to set up FileZilla so files can be transferred locally between a Linux and Windows PC? I've read that people are doing this, but now "how" to do it.

Re: Changing CPU Help

I thought about that too but "technically" the i3 has 4 threads where the 3258 has only two, but it seems to make a difference as when I have tons of graphic programs open, Linux with my 3258 sometimes can't handle it whereas with the i3 in windows, it just never hangs ever and since I use...

Re: Changing CPU Help

I was hoping that too. Would be a bummer if I had to re-install everything. Not sure if win-7 will figure out the new cpu either. I'm at the point that 99.99999999999999% of what I do is now on my Linux machine, so I might as well give it a better CPU since I've mostly given up on windows except for...

Changing CPU Help

I have mint 17.2 64bit. I was thinking of pulling my G3258 cpu from my linux machine and exchanging it with the i3-4360 cpu from my windows pc. Do I have to do any special with Linux, or will it adjust everything after boot up since it is a different cpu than when I installed linux
