Re: Print to PDF

I got it to work by selecting Generic / PDF (Didnt see this before as I was thinking the Windows way) and now all my documents come out in ~/BRF with a .brf extension. I'm scared of the package printer-driver-cups-pdf (https://www.cups-pdf.de/documentation.shtml) as it says it requires root to work....

Re: Package Log

Thank you everybody.

Now I looked in /var/log/dpkg.log and it only stores from yesterday. What gives? Is it a logrotate (or something like that) issue?

EDIT: Yes I see it now: dpkg.log.1, dpkg.log.2.gz, etc

Once again thank you everyone, even though the logs aren't in a format to my tastes.

Re: Log in twice

I see switch user but it just punts me back to my user name for a password.

EDIT: Actually I just tried it, it goes to a blank screen and allows me to select another desktop, then it puts me back in Cinnamon with a password prompt.

[SOLVED] How do I get a nice pretty grub theme in Mint 20 like MInt 19

Mint 20 only gives me a text based grub. I would like a more graphical (if you could call it that) interface on startup.

Even

Re: How does Mint create its boot isos?

I'm basically trying to create a backup of my current Mint install. I am interested in any and all solutions that would get me to a bootable ISO of my current system as it stands.
