Re: Help installing Samsung Printer

Thanks JF007. It was good of you to post a reply. I spent literally weeks attempting to solve the problem and paid two computer experts on different occasions for help. The charges were far more than the printer itself. They were unable to succeed, but I kept at it, and somehow managed, just by she...

Re: Help installing Samsung Printer

Hello JF007. You say that you got the printer to work but not how you did it. I'd be grateful if you could provide more information, as I have exactly the same problem, have downloaded any number of drivers and spent days on the web but have had no joy. If anyone else could help it would be much ap...

Re: Help installing Samsung Printer

Never mind, after searching the web I've managed to fix this and the printer is working, there is no point in having these Linux mint communities if people are going to view posts and not offer help as I'm sure someone viewing knew how to add a printer. But cheers anyway!

Re: Help installing Samsung Printer

Just to update, the printer is switched on and showing in "printers" this is what I see.

Yet it doesn't print, even with "print test page". Any ideas on what is needed to make the printer work?

Help installing Samsung Printer

I've done a search to see if there are any guides but can't seem to find one for Linux Mint.

I have the Samsung Xpress M2022w printer and need help installing it to run in Linux Mint 13 Maya.

Is anyone able to help?

Thanks!

Re: I can't copy and paste files due to permissions

Also how do I exit this mode, as I typed in "exit" but I can still copy and paste so I assume I'm running as a privileged user?

Re: I can't copy and paste files due to permissions

Cheers, that worked for two of the applets! The only other issue I have, is that I can't change the Menu (i'm running Mint 13) to the advanced mint menu that I downloaded via software manager (I can't see any option to switch to the menu) and I also tried downloading the applet but the link provided...

I can't copy and paste files due to permissions

Forgive me if this has been asked many times as I've done a search on here and google and worked out how to access superuser via the terminal, but it doesn't seem to solve my issue. I've downloaded applets for Cinnamon, extracted and now wish to copy and paste the folder to "~/.local/share/cinnamon/...

Why doesn't Linux Mint stay updated?

Have Linux Mint 9 on the family system as left it installed as was under impression it was a long term release and supported for a good while yet, however why doesn't it update software like firefox, thunderbird and opera to latest version?

Re: Sync or Backup Program

I installed Unison and found it easy to use, but I need a way of automating the backup of the home folder to an external hard drive, much like syncback does in windows xp.

How do I set up a daily automated (much like copy, paste, replace) of the home folder to an external hard drive?

Hi, I am trying to find a program similar to syncback, which will let me have regular backups/sync of folders on the local drive to my external drive. I have searched online, searched the software and package managers but can't see to find a program I can install. I wanted to install fwbackup, but c...

Do I need to upgrade?

I installed Linux Mint 7 recently on main home system instead of windows and have been happy, but just realised there is a new version (linux mint 8) so do I actually need to upgrade? as in I don't want to upgrade just because its a new version, but what are the benefits of upgrading?
