Re: Printer install

I appreciate your help getting my printer installed. Several steps to get it done giving multiple permissions. One of the questions was can you give me the URI of your printer? What is a URI? I have never seen that...... and how would ever know what your URI was?

Printer install

I have been trying to install a Brother MFC-J985DW printer on my Linux machine. Why is it so difficult? Why all the command lines in order to get a printer installed. Can't there be an easier way to install a printer? http://support.brother.com/g/s/id/linux/en/index.html?c=us&lang=en&prod=mfcj985dw_...

Re: Mint 13 Xfce keeps freezing randomly

I have had the same problem on three different computers running MInt 13 maya Xfce. I don't know what the problem is either. All three computers have Comodo Antivirus on them, but that is the only similar issue I can think of..... Please help!

Re: samba HP LaserJet 1320 networking problems

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/NetworkPrintingWithUbuntu have a read at this; you might be best to ask for this to be moved to a networking forum; as this is likely to involve samba config files I checked out the information at this link. That page was a lot of help and makes total sense. I will...

Re: flashdrive install problem

Use your Windows recovery disk to rewrite the MBR with the windows, then either insert the stick and write grub to it or re-install it to the stick and make sure to put grub on the USB. After that point you could set your BIOS to boot from USB as the first option, then anytime you boot with the USB...

flashdrive install problem

I screwed up when I installed Linux Mint 9 to a flashdrive. I think I had it rewrite the MBR on my harddrive rather than to the flashdrive. Please help. When I boot the computer all I get is a underscore line at the top left part of my screen. If I go into the bios I can have it boot to the harddriv...

Re: Running Mint (full version) from Flashdrive, can it be d

you can set the boot loader location on the last step of installation screens I think its the 8th step (the final step), which has an advance options button, where in you can select when the boot loader is installed. (just ensure you give proper location that maps to you large USB drive) Thank you ...

Re: Running Mint (full version) from Flashdrive, can it be d

At the final screen, before you click the Install button, click the Advanced button and you'll get a dialog that lets you select the drive to write the bootloader. At least that's the way I recall it, I haven't done a Ubuntu-like install in some time. In any case, nothing will be written anywhere u...

Re: Running Mint (full version) from Flashdrive, can it be d

It's easy once you get it set up right. You need two flash drives. One can be small, 1GB is plenty, for making a liveUSB. Once you have that ready, connect it and the larger drive, boot from the liveUSB drive, and run the installer, selecting the other USB drive as the target. Installing to a USB f...

Re: Running Mint (full version) from Flashdrive, can it be d

Here is a suggestion, can the makers of Linux MInt make an option in Mint 11 to install it to a flashdrive? It seems a logical option.......... Honestly I'm a bit confused exactly what to do to make a full version install on a flashdrive........ :?
