Re: OpenVPN Vs. PIA Applicaton Setup [Solved]

Here is the solution from PIA which worked for my situation. In a terminal I was instructed to enter the following: apt-get remove --purge resolvconf && apt-get install resolvconf apt-get update --fix-missing ...obviously, these commands need to be run with root privileges, so be sure to type sudo b...

Re: OpenVPN Vs. PIA Applicaton Setup

I did a complete shutdown and restart. Still must have the PIA client running for internet access. PIA tech support is not responding at all.

Re: OpenVPN Vs. PIA Applicaton Setup

I have no access to the internet when the PIA client is disabled or removed. In order to even read any responses posted to my request for assistance, the PIA client must be installed, active and running. The PIA client is constantly disconnecting my computer from their vpn servers leaving me with no...

Re: OpenVPN Vs. PIA Applicaton Setup

I made the poor decision of enabling VPN kill switch only to have it permanently disable internet when PIA is not running and connected. Can anyone help me remove this service? I disabled the switch setting in the PIA client, but nothing has changed; if PIA client is not running, there is no interne...

Re: How To install Epson Scanner Drivers

None of these suggestions made any difference; something which was working fine in Linuxmint 15, just stopped working beginning with 16 and continues in 17, not impressed with 18 so haven't installed. I have tried installing the deb packages, they all crash at the end of the install. What broke this...

Re: Mint freezes after suspend

I agree...editing the rc.local file is not the solution. I switched the display manager to mdm from kdm to see if there was any correlation. Preliminary findings indicate the problem has been solved; after 8 hours with the screen locked I was able to login and the desktop was fully functional. The s...

Re: KDE 14.4.1 eats up my memory

I suggest you start the system monitor (CTRL+ESC) or run ksysguard; click on the Memory column header to sort by memory usage. You will see the processes which are eating up memory. I have no issues and my system is very responsive while using a similar amount of memory.

Re: New printer app in Olivia not working

Thanks for that, I searched all over but did not see this solution. No thanks to Samsung, where you cannot even finish a request for support because you are unable to enter the printer model number; the web form will not allow any entry in that field, nor does the drop down selection work.

New printer app in Olivia not working [Solved]

I cannot get anything to print in Olivia KDE AMD64. This is a big problem as it took a bit of effort to get it working in prior releases. Now nothing. It is a Samsung CLP-620ND Laser printer. I am going to try downloading software from Samsung. What was wrong with the prior printer app?

Re: Monitor goes to sleep after a few minutes

I believe that this problem has resolved itself after I disabled power management and removed and then re-installed the power management software packages. Does anyone know why this is happening in the first place? This had not been a problem until I installed Maya.
