Solved: My Friend has an Epson XP-420

The Epson printer Installed without issue. Don is happy he was going to throw out the system. Now he needs to read about Linux Mint and how to use it which I downloaded the user guide for him. plus I added a readme for a summary of software. He has a lot to read.

Re: T520 wallpaper issue

Its not just the wallpaper its the icons on the desktop that disappear. I caught that last night after I cleans the
.cache. I changed to one of the default wallpapers, but it happened with these as well I go to wallpaper in the system settings.
