Re: mintconstuctor

I tried to install a version to Oliva and could not get it to work. I proceeded to Download Lisa and was able to get it and tried to get it to work but when the image completed it would not boot. Anyone know anything that can help me in my quest to get it to work.

thanks

Re: Unable to run executables or shell scripts

Question? are you copying the application to your Hard Disk from the CD or trying to run it from the CD? you might have to do that. That has worked for me when I have had to install an executable.

Re: Printer issue Brother hl2170w

I have concluded with this one after testing that the LMDE install was not good. I installed Oliva and I was able to connect and print to the printer.
