Re: Looking for a printer

I have been using Brother wireless printers for years with no problems. What model?
I have also used CISS system from new with my Brother that greatly reduces ink costs.

Re: Kernel Update 5.0.0.37.95 to 5.3.0.26.95 Kills nVidia Video Drivers

Trying the earlier kernel didn't help for me but at least recovered to a high res display again. Checking Synaptic package manager indicates broken packages. Using repair broken packages indicates libnvidia-gl-390 (version 390.129-0ubuntu0~gpu18.04.1 needs reinstall but.. results in Error E: /var/ca...

Re: How To install Draftsight CAD 64 bit

Looks like Draftsight are pulling the plug on Linux support now that they have got the program sorted. Free until the end of 2019. So looking for another Linux CAD package.

Main menu button [solved]

This suddenly disappeared from it's usual spot to the left end of the panel.
I have been able to turn it back on by " add applets to the panel" but it is now in the group to the right of the panel and can't be relocated to it's orignal position.
Seems odd behaviour. An update issue?

I installed ibus-gtk3
Logged out and in again and the keys all working :)

Re: Gnucash delete not working

Hi. I am trying to delete simple typing errors when entering information. For example I type "bank feee" (an extra e) pressing backspace or moving the cursor between the eees and using delete key has no effect.

Gnucash delete not working(Solved)

Anyone else have this issue. The program works fine apart from this and I have used it for a number of years but now Backspace and delete do not work.
If I highlight error with mouse I can type over.

Re: [UNSOLVED] Bluetooth problems: Bastien's computer? Who the heck is Bastien?

So I'm sure it's the card - it doesn't drop the connection to the mouse (maybe stores it?) when the machine is shut down. Hence when it's re-started in another OS the card gives out some sort of "busy" signal telling whatever the OS is that it's already connected even though it isn't. So if anyone ...
