I'm afraid it's not in the plans, although I do have a cousin who runs a B & B in Torquay. We'll be in my home town Birmingham, staying with my mom and dad.

I'm Mintless

Sadly my MacMini has given up and with it my mint installation. When I booted-up this morning, nothing happened. No lights, no boot chime, nothing. I hoped it was the SSD, but it turns out the Logic Board is fried. I could install Mint on my iMac 27", but it's pretty much brand new, so I've opted to...

Re: HP LaserJet Pro MFP M281fdw

Stephanie. It seems from that list that your printer is also supported except for scan to computer and fax. If your Mint does not find it perhaps you can steer it to the right drivers and let us know. Cliff. Thanks Cliff I downloaded and installed the correct hplip file (3.18.6) My printer doesn't ...

Re: Kodi 17.6 Linux Mint 19 Scraper issues

The commands I used to install Kodi were:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install software-properties-common
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:team-xbmc/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install kodi
Not sure if this is different to what you did but it worked for me

Re: HP LaserJet Pro MFP M281fdw

I just installed an HP Colour Laser Jet Pro M254DW. It too wasn't listed in HPLIP so I chose the driver for the M252 and it seems to work without any problems. Try the driver that's listed for the closest model to yours. There is also an HPLIP driver on the HP website

Re: Mint 19 Opinions and Reviews

I chose the upgrade route on my MacMini (single boot). I followed Clems instructions and it worked perfectly. No set-up or tweaking required on my part. The initial downloads took about 15 min and the actual install/upgrade took approx 45 min. Reboot, login and I was good to go.

Liking it so far.

Re: Express VPN installation

While it's not xfce, I successfully installed Express VPN on my 18.3 Cinnamon MacMini. There's also a Firefox bowser addon available as well. I followed the instructions from the Express VPN web site and it all went smoothly, without any problems.
