Re: HP scanner scanjet 8200 Not working

This is the SANE project page: http://www.sane-project.org/

However, i also recommend to update you HPLIP driver as this might solve also some issues: http://hplipopensource.com/hplip-web/index.html

Mint 17.3 Xfce Whiskermenu problem

Hi,

I have a problem with my Mint 17.3 Xfce installation. My Whiskermenu does not have a shutdown button. Does anyone why this is? I even updated to version 1.5.3 and it does make no difference.

Anyone familiar with this problem?
Thanks!

Re: Missing printer driver message

if it won't print without that folder being on the desktop, then restore it from the trash & see if you can work out, just what part of the program(s) in that folder, that the printer is using. Don't think it has to do with that folder. That folder was created while unzipping the downloaded .run fi...

Re: [Solved] BleachBit My Question

Well all is still good as I am trying more of the features and some that I check give me a warning. When I come across a warning I don't use that feature until I discover exactly what it does.

Re: BleachBit My Question

All this fear for BB is really exaggerated. I used BB for years (weekly, sometimes daily) in Linux Mint without any problem. BB automatize conveniently the cleaning of the system, so it saves time and space on the HDD/SSD. Really BB is an useful program. I ain't scared worst that can happen is I br...

Hello, Trying to install Mint 17.3 Rosa Cinnamon from USB stick. But my laptop does not boot from USB stick. UEFI is set to legacy.

Re: Steam won't support Linux Mint

There are enough Mint users who got Steam running on their system without any problem. My best guess is that they only provide support for the mentioned distro's.

Re: Default graphical user environment for Linux Mint 18 - Cinnamon,Deepin, KDE?

The answer here can be quit clear: Cinnamon AND Mate will be the default desktop environments for Mint. When Mint 18 is released with these 2 desktop environments, within a month you will get Mint 18 with KDE and Xfce desktop environment. This was always the path for Mint and will be for the future....

Known issue. I tried the Cinnamon 64-bit live-dvd.

Re: Why is BleachBit in the Software Manager folder?

I always see this discussion about BB, but nobody come up with actual examples or such to proof their point. It's always repeating another opinion about BB. It's like the developer of BB stated: Second, I've also read that BleachBit is dangerous, but like you, I could not get any specifics, so I sup...
