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 ...

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 ...

Hi, As said in the title, some handles to change the windows size disappeared. Fresh LM19.2, mate version, x64. The resizing arrows (left, top, right) and resizing corners (top left, top right) are present/appear as long as the cursor remains in the title bar, but none appears outside of it (cannot ...

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...

Quick filter: where is it in LM19.2 Package Manager? [solved]

In LM18.3 the package manager comes with a quick filter.

Might have missed the option, but it is not present anymore in the package manager coming with LM19.2. Any way to bring it back?

Re: Clean install of linux mint, keeping the ppa?

Ok, better to stay on the safe side. Will leave the 'old' ppa where they are and check/add the new ones only if necessary.
They are not all release-specific as far as I remember, but easier to add good ones than messing the system.
Thanks for your comments and advises.
