Re: Unable to pair Logitech wireless mouse

Hello, Have you tried lomoco? Maybe I am off base here but I do not believe that mouse is a bluetooth mouse. I just purchased recently a m510 logitech wireless mouse and it worked plug and play on my Linuxmint 18.04 xfce. Later I installed solaar and lomoco. Here are some links I found for your logi...

Re: Canon XH A1 HDV Help Please! Will not work with any software.

Hi, Some years ago I loved using dvgrab for capturing my older firewire Sony dv video camera. If you would like a gui Lives may be able to do it. Possibly Pitivi can, too. I have not used those. I used to use kino, too, now and then. I do not know why Kino did not work for you. If you find one of th...

Re: Another but maybe easy to solve CCTV issue.

Hello,

Have you considered trying motion? I do not know anything about it myself. I will be interested in
finding out how to run either zoneminder or motion for security cams in the near future.

Re: Canon scanner driver

Hello,
We have the canon pixma mg2920. We use scangearmp2. Maybe it is the same for your model? If
you wish, try scangearmp2 in terminal.

Re: Lenovo Ideapad 330S 15ARR not loading Mint 19.1

Hi, You can get linux working on your machine. I was able to boot into linuxmint 19.1 beta on my lenova ideapad S530 2700u 14inch Ryzen 7 vega 10, by doing this: to install dual boot alongside Win 10, disable secure boot in the bios and choose uefi and bios in the bios . When I plugged in the usb li...

Hello, I am glad it worked! Yes you can do some recording. If you are using lmms you can use audacity to record. If you are using qsynth I think you can use audacity to record as well maybe without jack. There are other daws that you can use for creating songs and recording. There is ardour, qtracto...

Re: Piano - Yamaha P-45B Digital install

Hi! I believe you do need to install some soundfonts. From your package manager you can install fluid-soundfont-gm or in a terminal install it this way: sudo apt-get install fluid-soundfont-gm. This will get you some sf2s. The vmpk is a virtual keyboard so maybe not needed for your Yamaha. Qsynth wi...

Re: upgrading to m.2 nvme pcie ssd on older gigabyte motherboard

Thank you for your help. It does not look promising at all. I guess I will be patient
and wait until I upgrade to ryzen motherboards in a year or so.

Thank you.

Re: Lenovo IdeaPad 320 touch pad not working

Hi,

I must apologize. I found a forum and the manual for your model that says it is the F8 key that toggles the touchpad on or off.

That is maybe worth a try. If that does not work ,hopefully someone or I will be able to offer the solution.

Good fortune,

Hello, It took me awhile to find the correct manual for my machine. Once I did, I found out that selecting F6 turns on or off the touchpad.

Re: Lenovo IdeaPad 320 touch pad not working

Hello,

I have a Lenovo Ideapad 530s ryzen 7. The touchpad did not work for 19.1. I read that this
will work in a terminal: sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-input-synaptics . Reboot after this
and hopefully it will work.

Good fortune,

Marcia
