I have two copies of Mint 19.3 Mate on my computer. I would like to remove one of them.

Re: Installing HP Envy Pro 6452 All in One--Help please

Sorry, but you are very wrong. The control panel is not under the lid. In the manual, it shows the control panel as being on the bottom right of the front. it is fully electronic and consists of six or seven buttons. I have no copier because the control panel doesn't work. I have no automatic docume...

Re: Installing HP Envy Pro 6452 All in One--Help please

Installed simple-scan. It works quite well. I tested by scanning a document which was, I suppose because I selected text, saved as a .pdf. I then opened it and printed it, and it printed quickly and nicely. One wonders whether, if I had selected photo, it would have saved as .jpg. My now defunct Eps...

Re: Installing HP Envy Pro 6452 All in One--Help please

I don't think there is a problem with the printing system. Everything I've tried to print has worked quite well. And I seem to have everything that I need to control printing, options all seem available, and it accepts print commands from my computer. But I am concerned about not having the control ...

Re: Installing HP Envy Pro 6452 All in One--Help please

Before we move onto scanning, can I ask a question that is bothering me? You've been able to get the printer printing, which is a great thing. Am I right in assuming that this is only the first step in the installation process? At some point we will be installing software that will allow me to make ...

Re: Installing HP Envy Pro 6452 All in One--Help please

The page printed. But all the while it was printing, the error light was on. None of the other control lights came on, and as soon as printing ended, the X light went off.

I want to thank you again for your help.

I didn't wait.

Re: Installing HP Envy Pro 6452 All in One--Help please

This is how dumb I am. Does it matter whether the printer is powered on when I run systemctl status ipp-usb and lpstat -a before the USB cable is plugged in?

Just re-installed Mate and don't have Window List where I want it

Not only is it not automatically installed, but I can't find it in the Menu or in Software Manager. I do sort of have it, but it was at the end of the initially installed programs on the panel. I've since added four or five more to the panel. The window list doesn't allow me to move them to the left...

Re: Installing HP Envy Pro 6452 All in One--Help please

Thanks, Brian. I don't have a wireless router. I avoid wireless as much as possible. I also avoid storing anything that I care about off my computer. I have a satellite modem that is a Wifi hotspot, but I don't use it. I also don't use a cellphone much at all. I did manage to find the power button a...

Re: Installing HP Envy Pro 6452 All in One--Help please

I am still offended by HP in many ways. I purchased the printer that I did because I live in a small town in Mississippi and I desperately need a printer. I went to the Walmarts in three different towns and they were sold out of color printers by every manufacturer except HP. I bought one of the las...

Re: Installing HP Envy Pro 6452 All in One--Help please

So I went to Sourceforge through HP and downloaded HPLIP 3.20.5(?). Then I installed it using the HP directions on the HPLIP site with the HP6400 series drivers. It doesn't work. My computer knows it's there, but the printer doesn't seem to be able to load paper. I get several different messages. Th...

Installing HP Envy Pro 6452 All in One--Help please

Just bought one. Never tried to install a printer/scanner in linux before. I'm stupid and can't figure this out. Printer is obviously new, and Mint has software for the Envy Pro 6400 series. But the installation is not exactly self explanatory. HP recommends having the most recent version of HPLIP. ...

Timeshift questions

I screwed up my boot by installing Windows alongside Mint. This screwed up my system completely; nothing I could do would allow Mint to boot. My fix has been to install another instance of Mate alongside the original Mate, and I can finally access my old system. I will probably decide to start over ...

Re: Boot is destroyed--Windows killed it

Nothing has worked. I finally installed a new version of Mint alongside the old one. Now I can access the old version. But in the boot, there is quite a bit of red that shows up.

I have come to hate Windows with a passion that grows more heated every time I try to deal with it.

Re: Need new cheap all in one printer/scanner

I'm offended by HP's notice that only its ink cartridges will work in its printers. I find that violates the "right to repair" that I hold sacred. I rather like the idea that Epson and Canon have on being able to refill their machines with bottles of ink.

Need new cheap all in one printer/scanner

My old Kodak that would only work on Windows seems to have died. When I say "cheap" I mean under $200, and under $100 would be even better since I very rarely either print or scan. I went to a Walmart to look at what they had, and they had next to nothing. I want an all in one. This store had one HP...
