Re: Does Mint 18.3 contain drivers for IBM InfoPrint 1410?

I don't see the 1410, but I do see the 1422. Which just may use the same driver. :?

Re: Update to Linux mint 19.1

Why are you "unable" ? Does it give an error message? What is the exact error message?

Try using the Software Sources program to choose a different Mirror Server.

Re: After Clean Install (what to do, or not)

Whenever I do a complete re-install or upgrade, all of my data and files are backed up to an external drive or usb. One of those files is a plain text file, with a list of all my favorite (kewl) apps. I also copy my hidden .mozilla directory or at least my bookmark file into the data backup. (same f...

Re: HP Mini 110-1025DX: Need Drivers and Acceleration

1. No, trying to install Intel drivers made for another OS will break your system. I had said ...and come included with the linux kernel. 2. Looks like you have the correct driver already installed. It may be that the Cinnamon desktop is using all of your acceleration just to keep Cinnamon running. ...

The Mint 19 and 19.1 Release Notes have the answer for your problem with the black screen. Did you forget to read it? :wink:

Intel graphics drivers are all open source, and come included with the linux kernel. No need to look for drivers, they are already installed. :) This terminal command will show you your graphics system in Mint : inxi -Gx (this one will show your complete system inxi -Fxzd ) You will most likely see ...

Re: Update Manager Connection refused - Some index files failed to download.

Could not connect to packages.domain.com:80 (127.0.0.1). -
That IP address is a local loop on your own computer . . .? definitely NOT the IP address of packages.domain.com.

Have you tried changing the mirror servers in your Software Sources program? This will most likely fix your error.

Re: can't find update

When you open the Update Manager there will be new headings somewhere in the menubar. Most likely the headings are related to upgrading from 19 to 19.1
