Mint 19.3 software versions

Hi Folks, Is there a list anywhere of what software versions are included in a Mint update? For instance, over the next week or so I hope to ( finally :roll: ) get my raid setup working. Since I've been told mdadm versions can be tricky (especially when used with different distros) I figured I'd che...

Re: Mint laptops

Also check with you local college. They often have a "surplus" store where you can buy all sorts of stuff for super cheap. Here in AZ we have the ASU surplus Store where I've picked up everything from computers & parts to furniture.

Re: Physical Hard Drive Switch?

That USB switch thingy is neat. I'll have to check that out. Which also made me think of exactly what many others have said - Drive Caddies. I've seen them for SSDs and HDDs. Back in the day when I was doing IT we used to use them all the time (I think the brand then was ICY Dock). But a quick check...

Re: Physical Hard Drive Switch?

This is why I use Terabyte Unlimited ( https://www.terabyteunlimited.com/ ) I've been using this since 2004/2005 Their boot manager is awesome. Every OS I have win and linux thinks it's the only OS on the drive. I'm NOT a shill it's just an awesome product. It will literally do exactly what you want

Re: Mounting external drive as "local" in VM

Here's an even dumber question... If that's the app you're going to use...will it run under WINE? Just a thought While I do appreciate the advice, it is not pertinent to what I'm doing. I am using a specialized tool written to backup all user data for either transfer to another machine or a new hard...

Re: Mounting external drive as "local" in VM

This may be a dumb question...

Have you tried mapping a drive letter to your "network" drive?

Re: [SOLVED] - KVM/QEMU - Virtual network won't start - can't install

Thanks for the pointers. Helped me figure this out. I replicated this on Mint 19.2 Cinnamon and XFCE 64 bit (albeit on the same hardware - I'll try later on another system). Here's what worked for me (may want to send this in as a tutorial): 1) Run: update manager with refreshed cache 2) Run: apt-ge...

Re: KVM/QEMU - Virtual network won't start - can't install

Thanks for the reply - sorry I've been absent. I'm still playing. I though I had it fixed last week when it got past that one. But then got stuck somewhere else. And I'm not sure the error isn't related Now I'm back in the office (for a couple hours and can play with it). I just installed (new) a cl...

Advice needed: RAID - mdadm - dual boot (ish)

Hi Folks, At some point I plan on setting up a simple RAID 1 (mirroring) on my data drive (NOT my OS/home partition). Generally I keep all my data on a separate drive rather than anything "local". So my home & OS share the same partition. BUT I have multiple OS partitions. So I'll have a bunch of di...

[SOLVED] - KVM/QEMU - Virtual network won't start - can't install

Hi Folks, So I've been playing with VMs (the eventual goal is to get my old Win 7 & XP machines running there -some stuff just doesn't play nice on wine). and in Mint 19.1 this problem didn't come up. So I'm obviously doing something different. I followed the same install procedure: sudo apt-get ins...

Re: [Mostly SOLVED] Konica Minolta Bizhub C552 No Color

It started working and I have no idea why. I had the printer serviced (just a cleaning and other routine "stuff") and the tech "threatened it" - we were talking replacement with a new printer... I finally had the chance to sit at the keyboard on this today and Removed all the installed printers thro...

Sorry for the delay, we had a major storm yesterday evening/night (thunderbolts and lightning very very frightening kinda stuff) so I shut the system down. Turned out to be a good idea... Anyway I'll do more after noon local time today. I wanted to be sure to update you. But...before I shut the syst...

The actual ps files are included here as compressed files as they're too big otherwise, including to put in as code blocks. One int...

Re: Konica Minolta Bizhub C552 No Color

Sorry about that Brian. I did try that (this morning) after I saw that you had stepped away. That was a part of what I meant about "experimenting". I also changed a whole bunch of settings on the printer (just in case). Also, the problem existed in Linux Mint mate, xfce, lmde, and peppermint. I will...

Sorry for the late reply. Life got in the way the past couple days. Thank you for the help Brian. I appreciate it. So just to reiterate, I need to get in touch with Konica Minolta. Will do.

Re: Konica Minolta Bizhub C552 No Color

Hi Brian, Thanks for the help. Unfortunately color is still not working. Your commands added a new printer, and when I tried printing still no color. I just get grayscale. I'm not really sure what you mean by "driverless". I've seen the term before but that just means (to me) that the drivers are al...
