Try this in Terminal to avoid it: sudo nano /etc/default/grub Search GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT, after "quiet splash" add "modprobe.blacklist=nouveau" Save file and exit sudo update-grub Re...

Re: printer not working properly in Mint

It seems you must clean the print head before trying to print again, those white lines in the middle of the circles say some nozzles may be clogged.

And it's printing in monochrome, no colour. May be you have selected black&white in printer preferences?

The same happens to me, and only in LM forum. May be cookies in this forum have a timed expiration (cookies with "expires" or "max-age" parameters) or the forum is set to automatically end session in x days as a security measure.

Re: ¿Cómo asociar los magnets links al qBitTorrent?

No hace falta desinstalar nada. Descárgate un .torrent a cualquier directorio. Sobre él le das al botón derecho del ratón y eliges "Abrir con", luego "Otra aplicación", escoges qBitTorrent y abajo le das a "Fijar como predeterminado". Ya está. :wink:

Re: Epson Stylus SX218

Yes, the utility has few funcionalities and can't help you to change the ink cartridges, you must use the button way (open the printer and press reset for three seconds).

Re: Epson Stylus SX218

Why Mtink when Epson printers have their own utilities bundled with drivers package?

Press Alt+F2
Type epson-printer-utility and press Enter
That's it...

You can check ink levels, perform a nozzle check and head cleaning.

Re: Constant freezing

Hi Ashocka! You can try "lsmod |grep nvidia" and then "lsmod | grep nouveau" in Terminal. The one that returns data will be the driver you are really loading. Last week I realized that although Nvidia driver was selected in Driver Manager, my Mint 18.3 was loading nouveau driver instead. Uninstallin...
