Re: If Printing Services Stops - ...Just Reinstall... [UPDATE] Don't Do This

Changing is not something that I would want to do... Only if necessary. That being said: 1) I explained in the original post that I AM using 19.2; 2) I found the reason for the issue and, because it is easily avoidable, I won't need to switch but will need to reinstall to fix the issue.

Re: If Printing Services Stops - No Fix - Just Reinstall

Post my question but it looks like there are no replies. Oh well. This is actually the second time that this happened on different systems. Same symptoms no obvious solution available. Lets face it, printing is kind of a major issue that I can't spend all this time trying to diagnose and fix. Sadly,...

Printing Service Not Working - SUDDENLY

Hi Folks, I don't want to re-install Linux ever time I go to print something so I want to ask simply -- why am I getting this message all of a sudden when the only thing I do is install regular updates and basically check my email, etc. The system I am currently using has had no major issues but sud...

System Suspends Right After Login.

I have found the exact problem and a solution on this forum several times by different people. Problem is, it is still happening. This is a bug. I think it started happening with 19.0. What gives? Please get the team working on this. I just have a Dell E6420 Laptop with an i5. Nothing special, not e...

Re: If Printing Services Stops - No Fix - Just Reinstall

Sorry. Wasn't meant to be strong advice. I was just sharing my experiences. I did come to the forums. I was searching around for about an hour. I also looked into the Ubuntu forums. Luckily I had my trusty laptop handy to get the printing finished. That said, Someone should look and see if making th...

If Printing Services Stops - ...Just Reinstall... [UPDATE] Don't Do This

See My Post Below for Reference I have discovered a repeatable issue with CUPS/Printing. IF you go into the advanced settings - after opening the printer options - and make any chance in logs/history then you will brake the printing server/service. Just don't do it unless/until the the Mint/Cinnamon...

System goes to standby after login

Hi Everyone, Hope your all enjoying the amazing new 19.2 release. I have the new 19.2 Cinnamon installed on a second drive so I can "stress" test it. So far it is taking everything I can throw at it and more. However, one thing I have noticed that is that starting with 19.1 (and now 19.2) I get this...

Linux Mint 19.2 beta some remarks on it

There may be a chance of me getting really happy if things continue to stay stable on final release of Min 19.2. I just downloaded the 19.2 BETA and I have to say I am impressed. The issue of setting the NEMO file browser's 100% default to be the size of what it looks like at 66% (the way all previo...

Install Cinnamon 4x on Mint 18.3?

Can I install Cinnamon 4.x desktop onto Mint 18.3 (Cinnamon)?

If so, how? The PPA most refer to doesn't seem to work.

Re: Mint 19.2 Cinnamon boots to sleep

Moem, I agree on the need to go back but it would be great if that could be something that worked only as an option similar to hitting F8 in certain other OSs.

Re: Linux Mint 17.x has reached end of life; upgrade now!

Ummm, oooops.

I meant to note that I am running into issues with 19.1 (not 19.2). Doh!.

Can Cindy be configured to basically work just like mainly Cinnamon? (sam packages, etc.)

Unreleased yet Mint 19.2 Cinnamon boots to sleep

As a separate install I have noticed that Mint Cinnamon 19.2 sometimes goes strait to sleep after logging into the desktop. Anyone else having this issue? Would also love to see a section on the web site that posts fixes the the growing number of issues in various releases. Like when GRUB suddenly d...

Re: Linux Mint 17.x has reached end of life; upgrade now!

Never really understood why there seems to always be a need to change all kinds of GUI things, etc. just because a new release comes out. I always feel that the Linux community worked more on reliability and quality rather than the type of bling that Windows is always trying to push - and then drops...

Re: Linux Mint 17.x reaches end of life in April

So many glowing comments about the amazing 17.x (especially 17.3). I have to say that I might consider moving to 18.3 until its EOL. However, it is my understanding that Mint (Cinnamon, etc.) are off-shoots that are based on the base code of Ubuntu. Everything else is home-baked by Mint. So, in orde...

What constitutes offense? What is freedom? Anyone who looks to history can see that to limit speech by means of ambiguous rules (ie. hate speech, offensive speech) without definition is a sure way to fascism and Marxist dogma.

Hi all, Hope this is the correct section for this post. I have noticed that sometimes the mouse pointer stops at various points around the screen.

Mint Cinnamon 19.1 or 19.2

I think the new features of 19 look great and mostly seem to work well, however, its not ready for prime time.

I have to wait for 19.1/19.2 or later until some bugs are worked out. super slow boot times, software compatibility, etc.

Keep up to good work.
