Re: Can I create an automatic backup with Grsync

For that, there is Deja Dup in the software manager, or Backintime which can be installed with: sudo apt-get update -y followed by sudo apt-get install -y backintime-qt4 Deja Dup is quite simple. I use Backintime to backup my entire home directory. It's very good, but I don't use the scheduler. Data...

Re: Printer Help HP mfp m477fdw

Here's a link that might work. It uses commands to install hplip-gui: https://zoomadmin.com/HowToInstall/Ubun ... /hplip-gui
You should uninstall what you have 1st. Also go the your home and enable seeing hidden files with ctrl+h and search hplip. Delete all instances. Then try the installation.

Re: Unable to install Brother HL-L2380DW printer/scanner

I just don't know. I wish I cold help.
Edit: Can you connect it with a USB printer cable to your PC and see if the scanner works?

Re: Unable to install Brother HL-L2380DW printer/scanner

All I see is the DHCP is on. Neither of those IP addresses match your printer's network printout, at least it's not what you entered in the install in your first post. I really don't know. You could try uninstalling the printer by the commands I gave and doing it again with this ip address: 192.168....

If you log in to the netgear, can you find the DHCP IP?

Re: A noatime test

I like Btrfs a lot. Right now, I'm using it for root and Ext4 for home. I've used it for years in many configurations.

Re: Unable to install Brother HL-L2380DW printer/scanner

On the bottom of you modem you should see the login and password for your modem. Look for your modem address and admin password.
If it's there, type the address in your browser's address bar and press enter. The user might be admin. See if you can log in. What model is your router?

Re: Unable to install Brother HL-L2380DW printer/scanner

I'm confused--how can my ISP affect my ability to communicate on my internal home LAN? How can my printer give me the "wrong" IP address?
All I know is mine changed. It had been the same for several years. Can you check the report you printed against what your modem says its DHCP IP address is?

Re: Unable to install Brother HL-L2380DW printer/scanner

I just had a similar issue. Centurylink or my modem changed my ip address with no warning. The one that changed was in the modem settings under DHCP as the pic attached. It is possible the printer is giving you the wrong ip address. If they don't match, your router may let you match the one in the p...

Re: Calendar Programs

I don't have a cell phone either, but I do check my email every morning. I didn't find the Software Manager provided what I wanted, but there may be one there. Only thing I know is install them and try. When I do that, I make a Timeshift snapshot, so when I'm done, I can get rid of everything easily.

I use Google calendar and it emails me every day my schedule. It's very reliable. I don't know if that would work for you or not. You have to have a Google account.

Re: To swappiness or not to swappiness, that is the question...

Not satisfied with just testing noatime for a single kernel update, I did a much more extensive test this morning. This is my test: I installed a fresh copy of Mint 20 Cinnamon, using Btrfs onto a Crucial BX500 SSD. I updated the system with 397MB of updates. I used Micron Storage Executive (for Lin...

Re: .deb files disappearing from apt archive

I think the setting in Synaptic should be like the pic if you want to keep files. (but this is Mint 20, so not sure if 19.x is the same). It may get fairly large if you don't clean it, either manually or with

Code: Select all

sudo apt clean

Re: To swappiness or not to swappiness, that is the question...

Once again, I've been investigating noatime being added to / with both Ext4 and Btrfs and have discovered it does reduce writes to the SSD for updates by about 25% to 30%. Above I posted it did not, but I was wrong. I added it to my main installs.
