Re: Web problem with Fedex under Firefox browser

Hi, These email notifications - just to make sure - are they from or to Fedex? What version for Firefox are you using? What plugins have you got enabled? When did they last work? Do you remember doing anything to Firefox, such as changing addons/extensions, upgrades etc? They are email notification...

Re: configuring HP photosmart C4740 for Linux Mint 19.2 laptop computer

I have never understood how it is that a person is supposed to find a particular printer on that listing unless it is by just pure luck since there seems to be no rhyme nor reason as to how those printer models are listed Yes it's a horrible disorganised listing, that's why I left it to you to sear...

Re: configuring HP photosmart C4740 for Linux Mint 19.2 laptop computer

the printer seems to wants to DICTATE that the router SSID must match and be equal to the printer SSID as shown at the bottom of the report - which really does not make any sense to me but I tried it anyway and indeed when I changed the router id to that SigmaplusEOL1 That sounds like an error msg,...

Re: configuring HP photosmart C4740 for Linux Mint 19.2 laptop computer

Wpshooter, is your version of HPLIP new enough for your printer? Look here https://developers.hp.com/hp-linux-imaging-and-printing/supported_devices/index to find your printer and see what HPLIP you need, and whether you need a plugin.

Isn't there a button to push on front of printer where you can set up the wireless? It could be as easy as choosing the WPS or automatic setup, after also pushing the WPS on the router.
As I said previously, already tried that - did nothing, i.e. did not work.

But thanks.

Re: configuring HP photosmart C4740 for Linux Mint 19.2 laptop computer

Looks like the user of this printer is going to have to be happy connecting via USB cable. Which is what me personally would choose over wireless 7 days per week. You originally said: Have not yet tried with USB cable, would really prefer it to be wireless. and gave the impression that you had deal...

I have an HP Photosmart 4700 printer. What I did was open Package Manager, searched HPLIP, and added all of what it gave. I did get mine set up for router, then gave it a static IP address. Had no problems with it since. Even can get reported ink levels. What was purpose of giving it static IP addr...

Re: configuring HP photosmart C4740 for Linux Mint 19.2 laptop computer

Do you have both 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz wifi signals turned on? That printer may only connect to 2.4Ghz wifi. Check in your router, turn off the 5GHz and see if that helps. Also, use the WPS button on newer routers, and then see if the printer can connect to it. There is no such parameter/setting in the r...

Re: configuring HP photosmart C4740 for Linux Mint 19.2 laptop computer

Brian, thanks for the info. But shouldn't this printer be auto-detected and configured by the OS ? I believe that it is listed as supported on HPLIP. P.S. - I just hooked it up to my own (not the client's laptop) laptop via USB cable and it is just about a one click deal and it is working. Shouldn't...

configuring HP photosmart C4740 for Linux Mint 19.2 laptop computer

Am trying to get HP photosmart model C4740 to configure on Linux Mint 19.2 mate laptop on a wireless basis.

So far can not get it to install - not detecting or recognizing it. Have not yet tried with USB cable, would really prefer it to be wireless.

Any suggestions ? More info if needed.

Thanks.

Re: latest version of JAVA for running Foxpro software

It's quite a difference. The Java website would have you install Oracle Java 8. Linux Mint 19.x comes installed with OpenJDK Java 10. OpenJDK is the reference implementation for Java. I'd not mess with your system and just try the Foxpro software as-is with OpenJDK installed. If you do need to down...
