Re: Persistent error message after installing HP LaserJet 1020

Hi mafinokc; I see you say I downloaded the appropriate packages and ran the installation and I wonder how many packages you downloaded; and what they were; my take would be that the 1020 is a very good printer; and a senior citizen; and that Mint comes with hplip already installed: which HP provide...

Re: HP 2050 J510 series won't print complex graphics

Hi wpshooter; I wonder which driver is being used by the HP 2050; If you go to the PRINTERS folder; (it is usually in the ADMINISTRATION folder); right-click on the icon for the 2050; select SETTINGS; then look in MAKE & MODEL: if you drag the window to the right and copy what is there; and paste it...

black screen at boot

so my Mate 64bit 18.3 seemed a little "unsettled" just before I closed it down last night; I felt Firefox was freezing a little on one or two pages; as I elected to shut down from the desktop; having closed all programmes; I noticed the bottom toolbar icons were changing; so instead of the black but...

SOLVED: Epson XP-830 prints with the Epson driver

great; delighted to hear all is good; if after Mint 19 came out; and you waited a week or two or three; and you opted to upgrade from 18.3 to 19; then it will have airprint-compatibility; so of its own accord; it is likely to add another xp-830 driver but I understand it will call it "driverless" .....

Hi Gerstacker; so there are often many ways to tackle a task in linux: to illustrate that: so another way to install is just copy commands; and paste them into a terminal; so for your driver, one could suggest doing here http://support-asia.canon-asia.com/contents/ASIA/EN/0100910801.html and click t...
