Re: EPSON WF-3540 no print after 19.1 upgrade

I'm not familiar with the term/acronym URI but the command gave me no results. Since URI is part of the second command I haven't tried that yet.

Re: Update Manager and Kernels

Cat, thank you so much. That's what I thought would be the answer but I was timid to do it for the reason you stated about possibly blowing the whole thing up.

Re: Can I type special characters with Alt+Keypad like on Windows?

You can also enter special characters using the "Compose" key. To set which key is the Compose key, click Menu, Preferences, Keyboard, Layouts, Options, Position of Compose key , and select which key you want to use as the Compose key. Then you can hold down the Compose key, and enter special chara...

Wow, I didn´t find all those mp3 programs that include lyrics editing. I tried Guayadeque a long time ago.

SOLVED: but only to the extent that I decided to switch to Guayadeque for mp3 playing, lyrics editing, etc. However I kept a semi-working install of Nightingale because while it doesn´t play mp3s, in my Library view it has a small icon next to any mp3 that has embedded lyrics. Since my main use of l...

Re: Oracle VirtualBox didnt run a virtual machine in linux mint 18.3

Ive hit this issue before with upgrades of virtualbox. The problem is that the driver for VB in the kernel does not match up with what is installed. I got this when upgrading a kernel and using an older version of VB then the kernel. What I did was make sure I had the newest kernel and then downloa...

Re: Nemo replaced by Nautilus leads to no boot

I'm not sure what happened but here I am reinstalling LM18.3. What happened is that you tried to replace the standard file manager that came with your DE. That caused stuff to break. I've downloaded the MATE 18.3 iso and it's probably finished burning onto the flash drive. Do I need to be aware of ...
