Re: Unable to print wirelessly

you have not us what OS/Distro you are using


you need to let us know what you have there.

Open Terminal and do:

Code: Select all

if you are using LM21.3, remove all of the drivers and when LM21.3 boots, it will find the printer

Re: "FREE" is not always free, especially with VPNs

If you aren't paying for a product or service then YOU ARE the product or service. Generally true but even if you're paying you're probably still the product these days. Can't still the data hunger of companies. Linux Mint is free but doesn't make you the product; https://www.linuxmint.com/privacy....

Re: NTFS as /home partition

please,
forget NTSF, and putting inside a ext4 partition, you are going to crash your machine.

use a Dedicated Drive for the shared DATA and make it exFAT

Re: How to Enable Hibernate on Low Battery for ThinkPad

hibernate is a bad idea, and has been removed from LM21.x

Far better to have it just shutdown safely

I had a look on ebay.com. Lots of T480 at your price point or cheaper. have not heard back from him, so don't know if he has done anything yet. he is taking care of an old friend who just came home from some severe surgery, so doubt the has bought anything yet. eBay scares him, so doubt he will get...

Re: will the El Cheapo HP laptops run Linux?

As others have suggested, it's better to buy a refurbished business laptop that was released 5+ years ago. Alternatively, if your friend will only browse the web and never ever use it for apps or email, then a Chromebook might be a better option. I have a personal aversion to Chrome anything, won't...

I used to have an HP, and that thing tried everything to keep me from installing Linux on it, but that was 15 years ago. a friend wants a small laptop to carry around, use in his Recliner, etc....

Re: Printing stopped after 21.3 upgrade

did you have CUPS drivers installed BEFORE the Upgrade?

if so, Remove all of them, and then reboot.
LM21.3 will discover online printers and install the correct Network drivers for you
