Re: Credit card version of the missing dollar riddle

(ETA: I believe it is called the "quick change scam".) That's it. And the person who does it is called a quick change artist. In my younger years I worked at one the big national pizza chains, and I witnessed this scam in person. The cashier kinda knew she was scammed, at least judging by...

Re: Credit card version of the missing dollar riddle

I assume we are all familiar with the missing dollar riddle https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Missing_dollar_riddle I like the following paragraph from this link: An 1880 misdirection is given as "Barthel sees two boxes at a jeweller's, priced at 100 and 200. He buys the cheaper one and takes it h...

Re: Panel disappeared

What desktop environment are you using, Cinnamon, Mate, or Xfce? Knowing that will help others give you a good answer.

I think the bigger question here is how did his home folder get owned by root?

Re: What Mint releases were your best and worst experiences?

Mint 17.3 was my favorite. I didn't like 18.x so much, but that wasn't because of Mint, but because of the newer version of Mate.

Re: What are you listening to right now?

Cheap Trick's first 3 albums. And I just got the 'Live at Budokan the Complete Concert' double CD, yet to listen to it. I don't know why I didn't have these albums when I was a teenager. Well, I did have the original Live at Budokan on cassette.

Re: What's wrong with my Firewall?

Running two at a time is definitely a no-no on Windows, and I'm sure it would be the same on Linux. They can conflict with each other, which can make it less effective than running only one. Run the one you like better and dump the other (or just turn it off). EDIT It just occurred to me . . . you d...

I'm using 19.3 mate. I just opened a text document, hit "print to file" and it defaulted to pdf format and gave a perfect rendition
If you read the thread, that's not the OP's problem. His problem occurs when he's reprinting an existing pdf to another pdf file.

Re: Print to PDF problem

I have done that multiple times and in most of the cases it works well in Mint. Except in some documents for which I have to use my Lubuntu computer to do the work. Is there anything different between the pdfs that work being re-printed and the ones that don't? I'm thinking there must be something ...

Re: Getting pdf viewer to open automatically

Not sure how you're converting what types of documents to PDF. Assuming you've set a default PDF reader as advised above, in LibreOffice instead of using the "printing" interface you can use File / Export as PDF / dialog box comes up: That's great. Learned something new today. However, if...

Re: Shutdown problems

Your computer is very old, you might be better off reverting to the previous LTS kernel which is still in support (which I believe is 4.15).

Disclaimer: I'm not an expert, so I'd wait for more responses before you do anything.

I don't think what you're looking for exists in the Linux world; or if it does, I haven't found it yet either. It would be nice to have. (When I was on Windows, I used PDF Creator to print to pdf, which also had the option you're asking about.) FTR, what is being discussed here is "printing&quo...
