Re: Printer Problem HP LaserJet P1006

I never did get it to work, can't figure out why, so I got a new printer.

Printer Problem HP LaserJet P1006

I installed HPLIP 3.19.3 Here is the problem: I can print a test page from HPLIP, if I try and print a test p...

Well, so far, it hasn't frozen up yet. However, I am still not ready to declare a victory.;

More Freezing...ARGH!

I am also having freezing issues, I don't use the computer much except for occasional internet access and listening to Pandora via Pithos. The problem seems to happen when I'm connected to the internet using a web browser, Firefox, Chromium, it doesn't make a difference. Presently, I am listening to...

Many problems with Mint 19

Moderator: I'm not sure what topic this fits in, so I'm putting it here, feel free to move it. Sometimes Mint won't boot, all you get is a black screen, I took quiet splash out of grub to find out how far it got before it stopped, it doesn't look like grub even starts. I get the BIOS screen, and it ...

Re: Connecting bluetooth headphone, is this correct?

So are you deleting the headphones from the Bluetooth Manager each time that you need to hold the power button long enough to put the headset in pairing mode? LM 19 might work better as it is based on Ubuntu 18.04 as Ubuntu 16.04 wasn't exactly the easiest to use bluetooth with I don't delete them,...

Connecting bluetooth headphone, is this correct?

I have a pair of Sony MDR-XB650BT bluetooth headphones which I connect to my computer running Linux Mint 18.3, It's been already paired, and I can get it to connect to the computer, but the method I have to use seems complicated. This is what I have to do: Press the power button on the headphones un...

Re: AMD Ryzen 3 2200G, any chance of installing Mint on that ?

It isn't much better here. However, since I quit programming back in the stone age, I'll report the problems I run into, and then hope for the best.

Just out of curiosity, what browser are you running?

Re: AMD Ryzen 3 2200G, any chance of installing Mint on that ?

I haven't tried 3D yet on my computer, but the one thing I can guess is that, in Linux terms, the 2200G is still relatively new, and the people working on the driver(s) for it are still working on them, so the 3D drivers may not be complete.

Re: AMD Ryzen 3 2200G, any chance of installing Mint on that ?

Update: I've been trying to get the Cinnamon desktop working, and all it did was give me headaches, so I tried the Mate desktop, so far, it works just fine, and you don't need those firmware files, although the uuku installation of the 4.15.1-041501-generic x86_64 kernel complains about them not bei...

Re: AMD Ryzen 3 2200G, any chance of installing Mint on that ?

I got bored, and started trying to get it working again, and I did, although, for how long is anyone's guess. Here is what I've discovered so far, to make it work, you need a bunch of firmware files that don't come with Linux Mint and the 4.16.0-041600-generic x86_64 Kernel, and they all have to be ...

Re: AMD Ryzen 3 2200G, any chance of installing Mint on that ?

Yes IT work. Have a 2200G. But I use software rendering... Video and other OK. I know the video will work fairly well with software rendering, but that's not the point, I didn't want to use software rendering, and on top of that I couldn't get the HDMI sound function to work with software rendering...

Re: AMD Ryzen 3 2200G, any chance of installing Mint on that ?

The computer is running well since I put the video card in it, so what I think I will do is wait until Linux Mint 19 comes out in a few months time, and continue the fight with that, if there is one. What I would really like to do is get my hands on the release candidate and see what fun I can have ...

I believe it's located in BIOS setup in the M.I.T. section under "Advanced CPU Core Settings".
I found it and changed it, thanks.

For the Ryzen Freeze problem, there is a new BIOS setting starting with F20. Look for PSU Idle Control and set it to "Typical Current Idle".
I have the F22 BIOS installed, and I can't find it anywhere.

Re: AMD Ryzen 3 2200G, any chance of installing Mint on that ?

I had it running again, and it was doing rather well, but then the screen started "freezing up" the mouse cursor would move, and that was it. I was listening to Pandora with Pithos and when the screen froze up, the music never stopped playing. I tried several different Linux distros, and ran into mu...

Re: AMD Ryzen 3 2200G, any chance of installing Mint on that ?

You may find this odd, but the BIOS I downloaded and installed was F21, after having problems with F22. Why it says F20 on inxi I have no idea, I never loaded F20. (I didn't notice that until you brought it up, thanks) I did load the Optimized Defaults at first reboot after I installed the BIOS, mad...

Re: AMD Ryzen 3 2200G, any chance of installing Mint on that ?

It didn't last for long, it was working just long enough to almost convince me I had done it, I turned it off to go to lunch, came back, and it won't boot, just get a black screen. Something must have changed, but I have no idea what.
