That particular voodoo doll only works for network issues. If you have any other problems, go to your vendor and get one for whatever other problem you're having. :lol:

Re: IPv4 Address Changes & No Internet

In the past week I have had no issue with network connection. The last time I did, I changed the wired connection 1 to profile 1 and got connected to the Internet. The other time, I changed from profile 1 to wired connection 1 and linked to the web. I can now state unequivocally, that receiving a di...

Re: Posting Images in Forum - Made Easy

absque fenestris, thanks for the added information. I thought "rimg" had a limit of 300 kb. I tried to load a larger image and it was rejected. The image posted is 152 kb and I did not use the "rimg" tab. If a image can be posted without using the "rimg" tab, then what ...

Re: LM 20.0

some folks still using 286 machines (with e.g. Puppy) - not Mint, but that's the reality. Fossilized tech junk like that should be taken behind the barn and forcibly shot. Or exhibited in a museum. :twisted: Some folks just like to get the work done... If you have the desire to get the work done, I...

Antikythera, this forum is a classroom to learn, rather
than a museum for entertainment; besides "fugly" is in

Posting Images in Forum - Made Easy

Greetings Minters! I had no idea how to post a picture or image on a post. :? After some reading on the forum, I following the suggestion of using "rimg" tab. The "rimg" tab is above to the far right; then go to your picture file and drag the object onto the white posting box. If...

Re: IPv4 Address Changes & No Internet

Ali Novian, thank you for your thanks. Currently, I am having no issues with either Mint 20 and Manjaro. :mrgreen: I do not know why but under the Identity tab, Mint shows a MAC Address, however, in Manjaro, the MAC address is blank. :? :? I seriously doubt I will ever come up with an answer. The Mx...

Re: Mint 20 no colour printing.

I did download dat file, however, it came up "read only." I did not change any settings to the file system. I must have the Mint 20 torture edition. Yesterday, I received all of my DVD OS from linuxonline, so I am seriously considering just doing a reinstall of 20. :D I now regret leaving ...

Re: IPv4 Address Changes & No Internet

I believe now this maybe a browser setting issue within FF, however, I am going to wait for a full week of use with both MX-Linux and Mint 20, to see if in fact it is the problem. I have monkeyed with this setting before with no positive results. There is little in the way of information, as to what...

Re: IPv4 Address Changes & No Internet

Well, Sleeper, I spoke to early. I am still having on and off issues. The only thing that has changed, is I do not get two different dialogue boxes for setting the network. Even the working MX-Linux now will not connect. It was either a bad download ; operator error; or defects in Linux. I did find ...

Re: IPv4 Address Changes & No Internet

Thanks so much, Sleeper ! The clue for me was dat my MicroGates 7 was functioning with the network correction perfectly. This told me that I had an issue with a Mint setting and that it was more my doing than the OS itself. BTW, I go Instructables.com each and every day. It is a wonderful website wi...

Re: IPv4 Address Changes & No Internet

It is nice to score a victory every once in a while. At this point, the changing of the IPv4 address is not germane. The reason my Internet was dropping or not working at all, was that I had placed both Cloud Flare IPs in the same DNS box. After placing 1.1.1.1 and 1.0.0.1 in separate boxes the prob...
