Re: Removing old Nvidia drivers

@catwezel
Thank you... The autoremove command works, but I wonder why when I open the Driver Manager I see so many entries like here. I would like to eliminate the old entries which I have not used in quite some time.

Removing old Nvidia drivers

Over a period of time I have accumulated a series of Nvidia drivers. I am using the latest and I would like to delete the old ones that I have not used .. forever. Is there an easy way to do it? I do not see how to do it from the Driver Manager. I suppose purge something could work, but I am afraid ...

Re: Installing Julia in Linux Mint

Now it works. I changed the linux version I downloaded. Earlier I was using the free BSD one, this time I went for the generic.
Thank you.

Re: Installing Julia in Linux Mint

I will try again later today, but the first steps are the same I used, only difference is that when I give the command ./julia nothing happens.

Yes, that is what I did. I temporarily installed it in my Downloads folder, then I went to julia-1.1.0/bin which contains a julia program. But I tried ./julia, julia, ... nothing...

Installing Julia in Linux Mint

Hello. I find more than a bit confusing to understand how to install Julia in Linux Mint. It starts from which version to download and it continues with where to unzip the .tar file and how to actually install the program so that it can run properly. I am not the brightest of the bunch in this field...

Re: HP LaserJet Pro MFP M281fdw

In LM 19 as soon as I logged in the printer was there and available wirelessly. I swear I did not do one single thing. And it prints. However, the scanner does not work. Nothing I tried seems to make it work. Simple Scan tells me that there is no scanner detected. I tried to connect the printer usi...

Re: HP LaserJet Pro MFP M281fdw

I am not an expert in Linux by any standards. But, I can say without any doubt that, based on my experience, Hplpi and hplpi-gui are among the worst software I have ever encountered in Linux. Obsolete sources (3.17.10 vs 3.18.6 or even 3.18.7!!!) dependencies that are missing and it is not clear whe...

Re: HP LaserJet Pro MFP M281fdw

I suspect this is the airprint option: if it were using hplip, it would say "HP Laserjet Pro M280 Series, hpcups 3.18.6." or something similar .. someone in a previous post suggested you do hp-setup ..... so why don't you try that and see if it can configure the scanner for you? (It may also create...

thanks for that Is CUPS what you were thinking of? No; I just meant what I posted above: if you go to the Printers folder; look for the icon for the 281; right-click on the icon; select PROPERTIES: and then look across to the right-hand columns; look in MAKE & MODEL ... if you drag the window to th...

Re: HP MFP M281fdw is airprint-compatible

Hi there Mr T: so the printer side of that 281 device is "airprint compatible": https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AirPrint Airprint support came in with Ubuntu 17.04 and as Mint 19 is from 18.04; (putatively stable and LTS); then it is now in Mint; if you go to the Printers folder; look for the icon fo...

Re: HP LaserJet Pro MFP M281fdw

I use LM 19 in dual boot with Windows 10. I just purchased and installed that very printer you mention. I found installing it on Windows complicated in the sense that installing it via USB was incredibly easy. Wireless? Not so much. Eventually somehow I managed. These bozos at HP still ship with CD ...
