Re: Canon LBP6200 printer not working

There is no need to double post the same problem hours apart. Give others a chance to read other peoples help, it does take a while so persistence will pay off you just have to be a bit patient. On most canon printers you have to d/l and install cnijfilter. I have a canon ts9160 and still had to get...

Re: mint update had huge error. admins please read this immediately.

I'm with karlchen, as far as I'm aware of no mintupdate will remove any drivers. I'm stunned and why you would remove your vga drivers in the first place. No wonder you now have a low resolution.As for your hd not showing up, this is probably due to it not being mounted at bootup. No O/S will remove...

Re: Installing Linux Mint, on a machine with more than one drive

It would be ideal to disconnect the other drives. It would save you headaches if you are not able to discern which drive is which.
Install mint on the ssd and once that is done reconnect the other drives and then re-boot. They then should all show up.

Re: A browser which can access IE sites

I had noticed that a lot of my websites that I had when I was using winbloes I.E. (I hate edge) had started to behave strangely or at sometime they refused to load, and said to either update my browser to ms edge or firefox. Since I dumped winblows and used firefox with mint ALL the websites load an...

Re: Samsung SCX3405 Printer

You could go into your printers settings and check to see if it has selected the correct page size. That maybe your problem.

Re: IMAC Passwd & USB Reinstall

That link works for all computers regardless of it being windows. All laptops have usb ports, all you have to do is hit the bios boot key, I don't know what it is for apple machines and boot from that device.

Install windows first, then install mint alongside windows in other words dual boot. You will have to remember that when windows updates it will alter the grub file. You will have to edit grub and update it again. This will have to be done everytime windows updates When installing mint do the follow...

Re: Thunderbird accessing GMail

Google changed their security on their email servers. You have to have the latest version of thunderbird 68.2.2 or later. That fixes the problem with gmail.

Re: T-Bird Mail Notify Question

As far as I know unless you start a particular email program it will not fetch the emails. I have used TB since year dot, and have a sound file that notifies me when I get an email. But that does not happen until I have TB running. It always worked the same in winwoes. You can use others notifiers t...
