Re: install brother HL-L2300D printer install Linux Mint 19.2

Download the Driver Install Tool. It will take care of installing everything your printer needs. Make sure that you read the instructions carefully, as it gets installed from the terminal.

Hope this helps,
Larry

Re: boot being delayed by 90 secs

As I suspected, there is an incorrect entry in your /etc/fstab file. The line UUID=1090e43b-d67b-4b8a-84e5-e7bee829800c none swap sw 0 0 should read UUID=d31f7e4a-06bc-4cb7-84dc-60a1e6ae6d6a none swap sw 0 0 .

Re: boot being delayed by 90 secs

Please post the results of the following commands

Code: Select all

blkid

Code: Select all

cat /etc/fstab
It looks like there might be an incorrect setting in your fstab file.

Re: (SOLVED) WiFi not available message in Network Manager

Did a timeshift restore and all was OK again. Didn't think it would work but it did. Thought I'd have to do a clean install because when I originally posted I didn't think timeshift would fix it.

Moral of the story: Backup, backup, backup. It can save a lot of time and lots of download MB's.

As long as you don't delete the .thunderbird folder in your /home/username folder, all your email will be retained, as will your accounts. Not sure about add-ons.

Re: Wifi works, but only with DHCP

wang xilong, apparently your office has set the network up to prevent people from wasting their time at work browsing the 'net. Smart move as far as I'm concerned.

Just my 2 cents.

Re: Need help entering a cp command into another script

I've kind of found a workaround by creating the file by reading from another file. Here's what I'm doing: #!/bin/bash x=~/Recovery/Repos echo \#\!/bin/bash > $x #---gives an error chmod u+x $x #i="cp *.pref /etc/apt/preferences.d/" sed -n '1w restore_repos.sh' sigs.txt #<---reads 1st line from this ...

Need help entering a cp command into another script

I have this script which creates another bash script. I'm trying to add a section which will add code in the other script to copy *.pref files to /etc/apt/preferences.d but I'm stumped. Do I need to create a sed loop or what? Also, can I replace "x=~/Restore/Repos" in the script with x=pwd? #!/bin/b...
