Re: Brother MFC-J630W Prints but not scan Network

Very similar problem with DCP-L2550DW model, migrating from 19.3 to 20. All the solutions that fixed the error in 19.3 aren't working for me either.

Re: Make Mint mimic Win 10 look?

I've done exactly this, in part because I needed to set up a public station for guests to use for basic browsing/"Word" functionality. It saves a lot of questions.

Re: Linux Mint 19.3 'Tricia' What are your First Impressions?

I have to say, I didn't like the newer logos that much when presented, but they work well together with the wallpaper, etc. Good look! So far it's zippy and problem-free, except for deleting files off USB drives, which seems slow, for some reason. Copying from USB to HD is perfectly fine, but straig...

Google Chrome launcher shortcut keeps disappearing from panel

For some odd reason, Google Chrome, and only Google Chrome seems to be disappearing from the bottom panel, after logging in again from lock screen. This does not happen every time, and I can't seem to find a pattern for it. IIRC, I've also added Thunderbird to the panel, but that one does not seem t...

Re: Trash Icon on Desktop Does Not Change if Emptied

Not quite "solved" yet, but rebooting did clear it. But is there still a way to do it without rebooting?

Trash Icon on Desktop Does Not Change if Emptied

Good evening, Minters! Recently, I've had the trash icon stay "full" when emptying out the bin. I've tried changing themes, adding more stuff to delete, etc. Is there a way I'm overlooking to force it back to "empty?" I like the visual reminder that I do or do not have anything i...

Re: Pinned Program on Panel Will Not Launch

Thanks! I do try to find new and creative ways to mangle my system. :oops:

Reinstalled as directed, and now pin works fine. I will wait for official version.

[SOLVED] Pinned Program on Panel Will Not Launch

I have the new Firefox 65 installed and added it manually to the Panel (icons next to LM/Start menu). But clicking on it, choosing new windows, etc, will not launch. Is there something else I need to do? I had right-clicked on an open instance of Firefox and clicked "Pin to Panel" to get i...

Re: (SOLVED) Weather Applet not Working ??? (SOLVED)

I got the new applet, got my API key, got my station, but the weather info is still not loading, for some reason. But at least I know we're on the right track. I'm not sure where the problem lies with mine, since I think I see some having it work. EDIT: Found the problem for me -- had to restart Cin...

Re: [SOLVED] Mesa VA-API Video acceleration drivers keep trying to update

Thank you guys! Oddly enough, now it seems to not do it anymore after doing so for what seems like a couple of weeks. Maybe one of the other updates fixed it.

Re: Sound Card Disappears

That seems to have done the trick, thank you!

I just also noticed that if I went to pavucontrol and chose the HDMI before I applied the fix, the Built-in Audio disappeared from the Sound Settings entirely. Interesting.
