Re: Supported Laser Color Printer scanners

Thanks Guys.

Re: Mint Cinnamon 17 to 17.2

Yup worked a treat. I had not realised that I needed to select edit but can see that it is a good idea so as not to pressurise users to upgrade. I Just Checked the Mint website.

Re: Zinio on Linux

This is embarrassing. I downloaded User Agent Switcher v0.7.3. I thought it would be obvious to find the Tools menu, but I can't find it, and I can't find the version of Firefox I'm using. There is not strip of tabs at the top. It has an Icon (3 lines at the right hand side) with options where I fou...

Re: KDE 17 to 17.1 Cinnamon Upgrade or reinstall

I think you are right. I probably just needed reminding. I've got an old netbook that I'll use then do the job properly!

Thanks for the advice.

I typed "Nepomuk" into the search box. It greyed out the icons but never found anything. Maybe it is t...
