KeepassXC 2.5.1: cannot set the auto-type sequence

Hi, So far I was using keepassxc manually (copy/pasting usernames and passwords) for sites I wanted to access to. Now trying to use the auto-type function, and, nothing happens :( It's about keepassxc 2.5.1 under LM19.2. For a given entry (this forum for example), - 'Enable Auto-type for this entry'...

Re: HP LaserJet 6MP: recognized but cannot print

Installed a new toner, sounds good now.
Will update the title to 'Solved' since the connection between the pc and the printer is working now.

Re: FYI: qTox (Qtox) secure multimedia messenger installation

Hi phd21,

Sure it helps!
Thanks for your long reply and the updated scripts.
Not that I'm using much this application, but, as noted, it is a great alternative to skype. The hardest is probably to convince others to make the change.
It would have been a bad news if the project has been stopped.

Re: FYI: qTox (Qtox) secure multimedia messenger installation

Hi,

Wondering if qtox is still an alive project/application.
The latest version (1.16.3, https://github.com/qTox/qTox/releases) is from July 2018, saw some files from Oct 2019 and packages about 1.16.3-2 though.
Any official news?

Re: HP LaserJet 6MP: recognized but cannot print

So far 'invested' only few $ for the pcie-parallel card, have to test the fuser unit to check if the problem of dirty pages with horizontal lines comes from it, or not. Already tried to clean up the toner and the printer itself but the problem remains.

Re: HP LaserJet 6MP: recognized but cannot print

Update. Finally received a pcie-to-parallel card. The printer was recognized as connected to the parallel port on both the full LM19.2 and a lite version where most unused stuff was removed. So far test page, txt and pdf seem to print fine, just have to clean a bit the inside of the printer from lea...

Re: HP LaserJet 6MP: recognized but cannot print

Absque fenestris,
Indeed, it's been a while. No network to connect the printer to, so no print server.
At that time, early 90s, the only network around was elsewhere with coax to connect few rooms and their computers. Internet was through a slow modem...

Re: HP LaserJet 6MP: recognized but cannot print

Absque fenestris,
Yes, a direct LocalTalk connection from the mac to the printer. Was working fine with a rather slim cable (compare to the parallel one).
I don't think that this printer has ever been connected to a pc machine before.

Re: HP LaserJet 6MP: recognized but cannot print

Cliff, I did not plan to install a card with a dedicated parallel port for the printer. It might finally be an option since usb/parallel cables do not seem reliable?!?! It also seems that I put the parallel/parallel cable in the trash when moving last year :( Would have to get that too. The problem ...

Re: HP LaserJet 6MP: recognized but cannot print

Hi, Brian_p, There was no lp0 in /dev/usb/. Lp1 and hiddev0 were there, I tried with the three of them. When using lp1 a page could be printed, but again with the 'strange' line at the top followed by some spaced black lines. The text was something like '#PS/Cdocg/3/0'Psodwcgd c{ popplgs pdgtops wgs...

Re: HP LaserJet 6MP: recognized but cannot print

Spearmint2, Yes, seriously. Looks like a good laser printer. It was connected to a mac years ago, printed well and would like to use it again now. Connectors excepted, was there a substantial evolution in the printing protocols? Brian_p, Thanks for your help and comments. I first removed other 6mp (...

Re: Mate 19.2 - can only resize some windows from top

Moved from Marco to Marco+composing in order to have back the working handles. LM19.2, mate with Mint-Y-Dark theme. 'Marco only' was fine under LM18.3 and the same theme. Later on, saw the issues posted on marco's github. Whether an issue with marco or with the themes, let's see what clean solution ...

Re: Some handles to change the windows size disappeared. LM19.2.

According to this page https://www.systutorials.com/docs/linux/man/1-marco/ and the command 'mate-keybinding-properties', Alt+F8 triggers 'Resize window'. Indeed, under Marco, Alt+F8 changes the shape of the cursor (from arrow to hand) and the next move of the mouse defines where to adjust the size ...

Re: Quick filter: where is it in LM19.2 Package Manager?

I see, you both agree that these packages (apt-xapian-index, mlocate) are not worth keeping. They are however convenient to find packages in the list, at least for noobs. The plan is to use xapian one once then remove it and tweak LM according to Pjotr's tips. Any recommended replacement for these p...
