Re: How many are 100% Linux here?

After reading the E.U.L.A. of that Spyware/Malware from Microsoft called Windows 10 and after Linux wouldn't work in 2000, I gave Linux another try on September 2015 with openSUSE which worked. After a month I threw out Windows 8.1 like garbage should and went to 100% Linux on all my computers ever...

Re: How many are 100% Linux here?

Just became 100% Linux user here! Last weekend I completely wiped my Toshiba of Windows 10 and installed Linux Mint on here. It does alright.

I've got a 14" Hp notebook that's a little new than the Toshiba that runs MATE. I don't plan to look back after switching to Linux.

Which version of Linux Mint uses the less amount of ram at Idle?

Seems like an interesting question. I've got Cinnamon 19.1 running on a Toshiba and it uses almost a gig at idle. I've got a newer HP with Mate on it and it's normally round 800 mb. I wonder if Xfce would run less as well. Just wondering out of curiosity.

Re: epson all in one will print but not scan

Well, I tried adding a rule to the firewall and my Epson all in one seems to scan with the firewall on.

Hopefully, this is taken care of and won't have any more problems. Thank you to everyone who helped! :D

Re: Epson wf-2650 all in one will print but not scan

That website won't load on my computer. It just says 403 Forbidden. This is sometimes caused by a VPN being used. I'll quote from the link: A recent change to libsane in Debian may impact on the ability of third-party software to initiate scanning with a frontend. Some packages from some of the ven...

That website won't load on my computer. It just says 403 Forbidden.

I tried the first method that was posted but got to something that I didn't understand. I got worried I would screw something up so I exited out of it. Is there anything else I can try? Thanks.

The audio box is checked. Also the pulse circle is selected. Neither of the speaker options inside a box next the pulse option are selected.

Microphone not working after Mate install. SOVLED.

I've got a hp laptop that I installed Mate onto and just found that the microphone doesn't work. I'm guessing it's a driver issue but I'm not sure how to determine that. Any help would be great. Thank you.
