Re: CrossOver on Chrome OS,

On the other hand ... Developments in CrossOver are shared with WINE, so a contribution to CrossOver helps development of WINE. At a current cost of $60 (USD) they are not asking for an arm and a leg. Many years ago I paid for a version of CrossOver, then $40, it ran the few programmes written for W...

Re: How to speed up automated suspend in linuxmint 18.1 ?

In Linuxmint 18.2 Sonya I can only choose for an automated suspend in 10 minutes. That is not true. You can select 5 minutes. I am still puzzled by your claimed installation of Dconf, Dconfig, Gconf and Gconfig. MuteAnt has already indicated to you how to install dconf-editor and also clearly state...

Re: Epson XP-510 Wireless

The first thing to do is to connect the machine to power and use a USB cable to connect to your computer. Reboot. Next, open System Settings in your main menu, scroll down to Hardware and then Printers to see if your printer is recognised. Otherwise, go to the Epson Download Centre http://download.e...

Re: How to remove user profile login image

On my Cinnamon system the stock images for faces are in /usr/share/cinnamon/faces However, the image I am using, set in Users and Groups (it is in the main menu) does not appear in the above mentioned source (and why should it?). Most likely you are using MDM instead of LightDM - there is no image i...

Re: How to speed up automated suspend in linuxmint 18.1 ?

To confirm, the timer setting in dconf-editor is in seconds and it works. Tested with 15 which was too brief (for me) and tested with 60 so that suspend will activate after 1 minute of inactivity. Be aware that these shortened suspend settings do not accommodate reading long articles online. Thanks ...

Re: Virtual box not seeing USB drive

You will have to install the corresponding Extension Pack for the version of VirtualBox you have installed and also check in Users and Groups that your name and admin status is ticked.
After that USB devices will show in VirtualBox.

Just to let you know what is happening on my network. Epson Artisan powered on, the configuration screen for WLAN in my router (Fritz!Box) shows Epson as wi-fi connected and active and also shows the signal strength. Signal strength is also displayed on the Epson Artisan screen. All other devices (a...

Interesting that the rules governing this race allow for a storage capacity of 5 kWh, so they must have a battery on board (for a fan?).

Re: How to speed up standby time in linuxmint 18.1 ?

I use "Suspend" whenever I am called away to attend to other activities. It is instant. Suspend ceases with a mouse movement or keyboard press. The mouse also has a switch to turn it on or off.
Caveat: watch out for the cat walking on the keyboard :)

Hopefully these vehicles are air-conditioned? It will get pretty hot in those tiny cabins in full sun.
