There will a PPD for it in /etc/cups/ppd. This command sudo cupsfilter -p PPD_in_/etc/cups/ppd -m printer/foo -e /etc/nsswitch > out.dat 2>l...

Re: printing PDF

The PDF's title is "Microsoft Word - EN3110.doc" and was created by Acrobat Distiller 7.0 (Windows). Nothing untoward there. I printed a page of it successfully. Producing gibberish for the printer's output is often a filtering issue. So I have been reading this,,,,,,,,https://en.opensuse.org/SDB:C...

Re: options and arguments

I guess it really doesn't matter, it is not like the system is going to give me an error message telling me my arguement is in the wrong place. As for options I have a better understanding.

options and arguments [SOLVED]

LM 18.3 Sylvia, Xfce
What the difference what an 'option' and an 'argument' using the command line? I looked this up online and the explanation I found is a clear as mud, and leads me to believe they are the same thing.

Re: Opera Browser problem

The libffmpeg.so file in the /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/opera folder needs to be replaced. At least that's the folder path in Cinnamon. Here's an appropriate forum discussion about it. It's about Opera 57 but the same applies to Opera 58. https://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=90&t=284435&p=15...

Re: Opera Browser problem

Some websites (diminishing number, but news pages are often behind the curve) still require the Adobe Flash Plugin to play video. If you don't have it, that's a start - it's in the repository.
