Re: Printing to default printer in Mint 19

I thank you for your reply good sir... but perhaps you misunderstood (or maybe I did!)... I know which printer is selected as the default and that is the printer that I am trying to print to... I am able to do so without any problems EXCEPT that instead of printing the document when I click the prin...

Printing to default printer in Mint 19

I use the Cinnamon version of Linux Mint... In my previous version of Mint (17), when I click the print icon on the icon bar, the system would print the document I had open to the default printer... If I wanted to print to another printer, I would use the menu bar File > Print > choose a printer and...

Re: Need help putting ISO on usb and boot from it

1) Plug in USB stick 2) Open folder where ISO is located 3) Point to ISO file and right click 4) Select "Make bootable USB stick" from the menu... Enjoy the Mint! Pro tip: use a smaller USB stick... one that is only a little larger than the ISO... so if the ISO is 1.2 GB, a 2 GB USB is large enough....

Re: opting out of surveillance capitalism (the "Big Other") New Year's resolution

Re: opting out of surveillance capitalism (the "Big Other") New Year's resolution

The solution is easy for me... I am changing nothing! My wife accuses me of having a tin-foil hat but I never opted in to the things that are intrusive on our privacy. I am slow to adopt new technology unless there is really a good/compelling reason to do so. I let the world at large be guinea pigs ...

Re: second hard drive icon missing from desktop

Only mounted partitions or drives (other than the OS) appear on the desktop. When you click on the drive or partition in the file manager, you are telling the file manager to mount the partition or drive so you can use it. If you are logged in as an administrative user, the file manager will general...

Re: Unable to download sha256sum.txt

Try here >>> http://mirrors.edge.kernel.org/linuxmint/stable/19/

If you need a sha256sum.txt for a version other than LM19, click the 2 dots at the top of the column.

The one feature that I miss from Windows is: one left click to highlight a file or folder name, and then rename. I have selected single click to open stuff... I point to an item and right click to rename... quick and easy. Linux's method is much too slow for bulk jobs. is there a way to adjust? Pet...

I don't remember ever having any significant problems. I like laptops with Intel processors (typically i3 or i5 - any generation), no cutting edge techn...

Re: Can someone recommend an AntiVirus program?

You don't need an antivirus! LINK

I have never used an antivirus on Linux and in 7 years of "full time" use both at home and at work, I have never had any problems with any virus.
