Re: Lost "Printers" in the start menu

Well you brightened my day! The command you posted returned another command and when i used it along with my password it re-installed the menu item and my printer is recognized. Still does not print but will work on that another time.
Many thanks to you for your help!

Lost "Printers" in the start menu

Always have trouble with getting my printer installed where it works and can not remember how it was FINALLY accomplished previously on 18.3. Now on LM19 same problems, so was trying to uninstall the printer (LM recognizes the printer but it does not print). In the process of trying to uninstall the...

Cinnamox-Zanah is gone?

I've been using LM for almost three years now and while there are some really beautiful themes available I find most of them either too dark or too bright for my old sensitive eyes. A few months ago I found Cinnamox-Zanah and started using it on LM18.3 and found it ALMOST perfect. After installing L...

Re: Error Occurred says Update Manager

Well, not sure how that would be done but it is okay for now i suppose. Wanted to thank you for all your help. Also just worked my way through your "Ten Things..." and really appreciate all the work you did. I went through those when I installed Mint the first time (16 or so months ago). Appreciate ...

Re: Error Occurred says Update Manager

Don't know if this matters or not but...The warning never came up until after I had installed the driver and then hit REFRESH on the Update Manager. Now it keeps coming up anytime I hit REFRESH. Appreciate your responding so quickly. Thanks.

Error Occurred says Update Manager

About 16 months ago when i first started using LM I had a long hard time getting my printer to work (Epson WF-3540) Never figured out what made it start working, but worked fine all these months. This time all was much easier and my printer works BUT now the Update Manager gives the following error....

Re: Firefox 57...Quantum

I had no reason to suspect that updating FF was anything more than a normal SECURITY update as indicated in the list of available updates. However it is MUCH more than a security update and now I have duplicate tabs on side and top (previously only on the side panel). One reason I use the side tabs ...

Or if people would read the forum guidelines... Hey, we can dream. I skimmed the guidelines before posting. If one read every thing posted under "Important Notices" there would be no time to do anything else on the site. Also searched several times before posting and only got wild unrelated topics ...

Re: Does Ubuntu mean Ubuntu?

Excellent! Then you get to mark the topic as [SOLVED]. :D
I would have marked it yesterday when I made my last post but could find no way in which to do so. Now I see fine print in your sig that informs how it is done. Maybe more would get marked if the process were made more apparent. :wink:

Re: Does Ubuntu mean Ubuntu?

Why not post a link to the game, then maybe we can tell you if it requires Steam. That would not solve much in the long run, and leave unclear just what the words; "OS: Ubuntu/SteamOS (latest)" means. Actually there are a lot of games and other programs with similar statements. As for the specific ...

Re: Does Ubuntu mean Ubuntu?

Thanks for the replieS. I've never used Steam and really was wanting to know if the designated requirements meant It would run with OR without Steam. I understand that Steam works on Mint but not really interested in Steam at this point.
Appreciate your taking time to write.

[SOLVED] Does Ubuntu mean Ubuntu?

A program (game) states in order to run on Linux it requires: "OS: Ubuntu/SteamOS (latest)" If I understand correctly, Ubuntu underlies Mint and so I am asking if the program will run on Mint or must I be running the Ubuntu version OS? Also, does the above requirements mean it will run on Ubuntu OR ...
