Re: Need guidance installing drivers for nVidia GeForce 6800 GS

Do you know what the number is of the 32 bit Linux Nvidia driver version you need for your 6800 GS card ? A search of Nvidia's driver download webpage comes up with Version: #390.87, but this is for the gtx6800 and I don't know if that is the same as your 6800gs. I can't find any drivers labelled 'g...

Re: Epson WP4535 does Print but won't Scan

Not sure if your problem is the same as the one I recently resolved with my Canon printer/scanner in my Linux Mint 19.01, (with help from this forum) . I could print ok but my scanner wasn't being recognised so I couldn't scan. It turned out to be caused by the Linux Mint Firewall, which I had enabl...

Re: Brightness Control Desktop

What model Dell monitor is it?

As far as I am aware, brightness and contrast are not normally controlled through your operating system, they are controlled through the buttons on your monitor which bring up an On-Screen Display Settings menu.

Nice, but it doesn't look like a mint leaf. More like Camellia Japonica, I think.

Great work, stick with it, it's gets easier as you go. I'm not that far behind you at 71 yrs. If you and I can get the hang of Linux, anybody can. : )

Re: Is Linux beyond me?

Ended up using Thunderbird which have figured out is actually quite beautiful to use and configure. I don't like using cloud based mail and prefer to have my emails downloaded directly to my computer. For that reason I used Thunderbird for years as my email client on my Windows 7 machine. When I mo...

Onboard keyboard issue

Hi I'm have Linux Mint 19.01 installed on my desktop pc and quite often use "Onboard", the onscreen keyboard. It is useful to me and mostly runs very well, but sometimes for reasons I don't understand it just stops working. I have the Onboard icon pinned to my taskbar and just click on it when I nee...

Re: What use is learning the command line for someone new to Linux?

I I can see how people like administrators and programmers are likely to get a lot of use out of it, but what about the "average" computer user? I'm a bit long in the tooth for learning new tricks and find it quite a challenge to get my head around a lot of the command line jargon used in Linux. Bu...

Re: Partitioining of Hard Drive

I don't quite understand the wording of your question, but are you using Gparted to edit your partitions?

Also, if you are using Linux Mint 19.01 you don't need a swap partition.

I'm using Linux Mint 19.01 and Blueman shows up in my Software Manager. I have a pair of Bose QC35ii bluetooth headphones that I had a lot of trouble with in Linux Mint 18. I could only get them connected using Blueman. When I eventually deleted Mint 18 and did a fresh install of Linux Mint 19.01 my...

Hello alatrope, I have a Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 card and have it running fine in my Linux Mint 19.01 64bit cinnamon desktop pc. The steps I used to get it running were as follows - I first found which driver was needed for this card on the Nvidia website - https://www.nvidia.com/Download/driverResu...

Re: [SOLVED - it was the firewall!] Canon MP560 scanner - worked with 17.3, not with 19.x

Finally, I found the correct ip address for my printer and added it to the ufw rules. Simplescan now sees my scanner.

Cheers to all.

Re: [SOLVED - it was the firewall!] Canon MP560 scanner - worked with 17.3, not with 19.x

Thanks for that interesting post br1anstorm, I think the reason for it not working for me, and the rule not showing in the gui is that I probably used the wrong ip address. I must have used the address of some other device on my home network. I find all this network stuff confusing and probably have...

Re: [SOLVED - it was the firewall!] Canon MP560 scanner - worked with 17.3, not with 19.x

My canon mp560 has a static ip address and I was advised to try the following command to add it to the firewall rules - sudo ufw allow from <ip address> I got a return message in Terminal saying "ufw rules updated", so I think it was successfully entered somewhere, but the new rule didn't show up in...

Re: Canon MP560 scanner - worked with 17.3, not with 19.x

I suppose it might be possible to tweak the ufw settings to permit access to and from the scanner while still having firewall protection on other access points (ports?). If anyone can advise on how to do that, I might try it. Meanwhile I shall leave the ufw switched off, as my router has a firewall...

I'm running Linux Mint 19.01 on a desktop pc and have a Canon MP560. Like you I could print ok via wifi but couldn't get the scanner recognised . I never found out what was causing the wifi issue, so in the end I gave up and used the old fashioned method by just connecting the printer via usb cable ...
