Re: Talpa modules in Sophos. Needed?

Interesting. Thanks. I read what you suggested. A lot of it makes sense. Scanner engine seems to work well. However, I see there are also LOTS of people saying some AV is needed in Linux. It is not the I MUST have an AV program in Mint, but simply want to be sure it is as secure as possible. I keep ...

Hi. Even though I was running Sophos, I tried to install Bitdefender Anti-Virus Scanner to have something I could use to scan file downloads, mail, etc. Now - Bitdefender does not even show as installed, I can't start it, can't seem to uninstall or remove what was done. However - as I noted, I have ...

Re: Using Extrenal USB Hard Drives

(We do have 2 drives we use for our main windows system for Full backups.). Reformatted a USB flash drive to Ext 4 which we use f...

Canon Pixma: drivers, print preview

Am a new user. Starting to convert all our 5 Windows systems to Linux. Running 19.2 Cinnamon on one now. We have 4 or 5 Canon Pixma Printers.
Question. Are there any drivers for these that would let us A. Print in Draft, and B. Have Print Preview as a regular option? Thanks.
