Re: Thank you to those supporting others here!

Add brian_p to my list, for pointing out how I could get Mint to use AirScan (WiFi access to the scanner side of my Canon MFP).

Re: Screen Resolution randomly loads as 800x600 with no option to change. Desired resolution of Native 1920x1080

This may not be the answer, but...

I had this on my desktop computer once. It dropped to low resolution and nothing I could do would fix it.

Until I realized the monitor cable was not firmly connected. Once I reseated it, I was back to the monitor's highest resolution.

Worth a shot, no?

Re: Blue Yeti Snowball USB microphone is not recognized

I do have a Snowball that works with Linux Mint and on Ubuntu on two different computers and no configuration was needed...just plug and play in all cases. I'm sorry you're not able to get this solved, maybe it's manufacturing variances in the Snowball. I wish you much success finding a new micropho...

Re: [SOLVED] Canon Scanner Working - New Kernel Support (turns out to be AirScan instead)

Correct. sane-escl is an official SANE backend (driver) and will ship with Ubuntu 20.04. sane-airscan (the backend you and others are using) is just as competent and well-supported by its author. I recommend it on Mint 18.x and 19.x for modern devices because it is only a matter of downloading a .d...

Re: Canon Scanner Working - New Kernel Support

I just wanted to scream from the rooftops - IT WORKS! This has nothing to do with the kernel. The relevant magic is an addition to the SANE backends. Users of modern Brother, Canon, Epson and HP devices with Mint 19.x can avail themselves of a similar backend, sane-airscan. Installation instructions...

So, some of you have seen me post about my Canon TS3322 printer/scanner using Linux Mint. The printer has always worked, both wired/USB and wireless...but I've never successfully gotten the scanner to work. And that's after many attempts to install Canon's drivers, trying to figure out the whole XSa...

Here's the problem: I am a regular in at least two other forums that INSIST you find a previously posted thread, and if you start a new thread, they harass you and tell you that you SHOULD NOT start a new thread if a related thread can be found.

I'm struggling with getting my Canon TS3322 scanner working with Linux, and I've tried pretty much everything that is suggested: * Install the .deb drivers from the Canon website (both print and scan), which seemed to successfully install. * Get XSANE working. It apparently doesn't support my scanne...

Re: Chrome Freezing After Recent System Update

And I agree with that. It's fixed.

The problem on this desktop was indeed Timeshift running. It was very slow last night, and sure enough, the weekly Timeshift session was taking place at that same time.

Re: Just migrated from Windows 7 to Linux Mint

I just took advantage of what is still a free upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10 (using the Microsoft Media Creation Tool), so the Windows partition on my laptop is now 10. I figured, "why not?" in case I do need to run a Windows program sometime. But Linux Mint 19.3 is unaffected. And after I got...

Re: Chrome Freezing After Recent System Update

I turned off Timeshift's daily runs for now. Still kept weekly and monthly, and will do manual if needed before any system changes.

Hopefully, that will make Chrome faster!

Re: Chrome Freezing After Recent System Update

I think my earlier issues on this desktop, post-upgrade to 80.*, was timeshift hitting the computer too much. It does its daily rsync at about this time, so I'll move it later...

Without that going on, no lockups. With that going on, Firefox also showed lockups it normally does not show.

Re: Chrome Freezing After Recent System Update

Chrome for Linux is downloaded directly from their site, as a .deb file. It is not in the repositories. https://www.google.com/chrome/ This will probably get you the new version, even on LM 18. Note: Installing Google Chrome will add the Google repository so your system will automatically keep Googl...
