SOLVED Re: Brother HL-2140 Setup

Thanks for that, but I knew there was a very easy method, and that was to go into Software Manager, install the appropriate Brother Laser Printer, change config to Brother HL-2140 Foomatic/hl1250, and there you have it.

Brother HL-2140 Setup

Hi, I'm running LM Mate 18.3. It recognised the printer, and automatically configured installation. The Brother HL-2140 continuously prints blank pages. I thought I'd solved it by reconfiguring to Brother HL-2140 Foomatic/hl1250, which worked before, but no change I've solved this problem on previou...

Re: Constant freezing

Looking at your hardware config, the only thing that stands out to me is that you are using the open-source Nouveau driver for the nvidia card. Try installing the proprietary driver for this card and see if the problem remains. Thanks. I've just done as you have suggested. I am getting old and stup...

Re: Applications do Not appear in Status Bar

If you were on Cinnamon, I'd say you had probably managed to remove the applet called 'Windows List' and needed to add it back to the panel (that's what we call the bar at the bottom of the window, where useful stuff is shown). On Mate, I don't know, but maybe these hints will lead you in the right...

Re: What's Happened to LM18. Lots of problems

Thanks,

But my problem doesn't seem to be this at all. It's a problem of simply detecting internal and external devices, and also remembering shortcuts.

What's Happened to LM18. Lots of problems

I'm a long term Linux user. No expert, just enough knowledge to be a happy user. I've used LM Mate, Xfce, had issues with Cinnamon in the past. Mostly I've used LM Xfce over the last few years. My main computer finally gave out. Recently I bought Lenovo Desktop H5050 i7 with 4 Gb Ram. I tried to ins...

Re: LM17 (Cinnamon) not showing video thumbnails

I was running Mint 17 Cinnamon in the live mode and did notice the file manager was not showing thumbnails of .mp4 videos. So I used package manager to install the Caja file manager. There was no menu listing for Caja so I typed "caja" in the terminal and ran it. This opened a Caja file manager ins...

LM17 (Cinnamon) not showing video thumbnails

I'm just upgrading my LM14 (Mate) to LM17 (Cinnamon). One of the main things I'm noticing is that the thumbnails of videos are not showing thumbnail shots of the actual videos like they did in LM14. I had noticed before, when I went to install LM (Xfce) on an older machine that it would transform so...

Re: Software Sources look out of date (404) [Solved]

Thanks for pointing out my oversight Karl. Much appreciated. Just setting myself to do a new upgrade. Which isn't/shouldn't be too much trauma. Interesting observation, I have noticed my recent daily backups are assigned corrupted, so guess this is also part of the expired support. Once again, thank...

Software Sources look out of date (404)

Hello, I think my software sources are out of date. I can't install some programs, and the last Update was maybe 6 months ago or so. Here's the basic info. I'm running off http://www.internode.on.net/ in AU, I think they should have a repository? DISTRIB_ID=LinuxMint DISTRIB_RELEASE=14 DISTRIB_CODEN...

Re: LMDE Installing and using multiple languages

What was the solution to your problem? I have SCIM installed but it doesn't recognize Chinese. The only 'option' it gives me is to use English. How can I get SCIM to give me Chinese as a language option? If I remember correctly I installed ibus instead of scim (as I had observed previously an upgra...
