Re: Canon MAXIFY MB5420 need drivers & software

Thanks for the info!
Sorry I did not give you enough info but I'm still on v18.3 both 32bit and 64bit. Does that make a difference on the above instructions?

Yes using a wifi connection too

Re: What to do if you can't login to Linux Mint 18.x

Clem,
Thanks for your post and instructions. Those original updates bricked two of my Dell Laptops and I was not a happy camper. Your instructions brought both of them back to life again!

Thanks!!

Re: Firefox 57 - Quantum

Well, you guys may do some extreme customizing of your browsers. For myself, I've installed it on 3 Windoz machines so far and LOVE IT! It's lightening faster than version 56 and I cannot wait to see it run on Linux Mint!

Re: Stumped! Wifi stopped working - device not ready

Mine was acting exactly like you describe and after changing the wifi driver as I posted earlier, problem solved. I always keep my system up to date and had done some updates too, as you described.

Re: Stumped! Wifi stopped working - device not ready

Mine started going bonkers like that the other day too. I was using the B43 driver, not the legacy. I went into the Driver manager and changed it to the "recommended" Linux/Ubuntu driver and solved the problem.
Good Luck!....I think some recent update clobbered the wifi setup.

Re: error: attempt to read or write outside of "hd0" *SOLVED**

Well it's been a long road. I did your suggested fixes 2 or 3 times and finally got Grub to load but when I picked the option to start Linux it would error off like before. The drive was acting very strange. I pulled the drive and hooked it up to up my Windows 7 system and cleared it with Acronis an...

New Western Digital drive, was working fine before the reinstall. Using 32bit Mint. It's the internal drive in the laptop and the only drive on the system. Just ran smart test and it's OK.

error: attempt to read or write outside of "hd0" **SOLVED**

Dell Latitude D600 had a dual boot with WinXP and Mint Cinnamon Serena 18.1 running fine on a very small drive. Using DD, I cloned the drive to a 250GB drive which was then running fine as before. I decided to get rid of XP and use all of the drive for Mint 18.1 by doing a clean install. I did the i...

Re: Mint 18 32bit forcePAE video players open/close

You might install the VLC player and try that. If it works then set it as your default player. It started working for me on the Dell D600 but the other player still won't work. Also, neither one works on the HP dv1040us. Yes, VLC is not very fluid.

Re: Mint 18 32bit forcePAE video players open/close

Even with all the updates to date, this problem still exists on my Dell Latitude D600 and my HP dv1040us laptops.
Same problem on both systems. Video players won't stay open and play any videos.
