Re: Linux 19 & mail servers (solved?)

Thanks for the quick replies. Things so often go wrong with me that I always assume it is my fault and never think further than that. Following your advice, I got in touch with the server and was told that there is an unsolved problem at their end.
Thanks .

Linux 19 & mail servers

I am using Linux Mint 19.3 with cinnamon desktop. After the upgrade everything seemed to work well, until quite suddenly problems developed with emails. I use runbox connected to Thunderbird and have done since late last year. But a few days ago, when I go to Thunderbird, instead of messages downloa...

Re: Install Samsung M2020 printer

Great News HAWR. I wrote an hour ago to say that I had still been unsuccessful, but now I can report that thanks to your help I have the printer functioning. I decided to start from scratch and re-do everything mentioned in the website to which you referred me. I got rid of previous drivers and then...

Re: Install Samsung M2020 printer

Good afternoon, Thank you for your continued help, HAWR. I had already followed that suggestion but have just gone through it again. I downloaded both versions, and in each case I get the same message when I click on Uld: <error opening file: 'home/xx/download;uld/noarch/.version-printer-script' Per...

Re: Install Samsung M2020 printer

Thanks to HAWR and AZ (if I may shorten the name). I've had no luck and wonder if writing the details might give a clue as to what I am doing wrong. First of all I went to the helpful link that was suggested; the Samsung Unified Directory Repository and followed instructions to remove drivers. I the...

Re: Install Samsung M2020 printer

Thanks very much for the quick and helpful replies. I shall go through suggestions carefully and reply again when I know the outcome. I have already, I hope, removed the old driver, although I am no expert and may have mucked things up in the process. Time will tell.

Install Samsung M2020 printer (Solved)

This is not really a new topic, and it has been dealt with in depth. (For the life of me I find it impossible to discover the topic number, but it began in 2017 and had an update as late as this year, but now unfortunately locked.) I assume that is the case because many people found there the soluti...

Re: Slow shut down LM19 (solved)

Thanks to both of you for the advice. Shut-down is not instantaneous as it is on the other machine, but 10 seconds is not a long time to wait!
I wish I had asked for help some time ago.

Slow shut down LM19 (solved)

I have installed Linux Mint 19 on two computers. One is several years old, and shut-down is almost instantaneous. The other is about six months old, but shut-down takes anywhere from two minutes to five. It is quite annoying, and I wonder what might account for the difference. I know that more infor...

Re: iso won't load linux mint 18,3 or 19

Hello Karl, Thanks for your patience and help. I am also having problems with email so don't get notice of replies at the moment. Hence, the delay in getting back to you. I did as you suggested. When I entered ls -al I had a long list, apparently of actions I have done this morning. Adding $HOME/ .I...

Re: iso won't load linux mint 18,3 or 19

Hello again, Karl. Unfortunately I spoke too soon. I just switched on my computer and waited three minutes by my watch, while nothing happened. When I went back eventually the screen showed the same message; ie, could not update ICE authority, so please log out. I followed your instructions, and whe...

Re: iso won't load linux mint 18,3 or 19

Thank you,Pierre, I appreciate your help. and I hope you'll forgive my technological ignorance. I believe that I did use checksum, and I suppose it is a live environment, since I am using a flash drive to attempt an installation of Mint 19, And, as I said, I used an iso burned to a disk to attempt t...

iso won't load linux mint 18,3 or 19

There are two aspects to my problem. I loaded linux mint 19 from a flash drive with no problems whatsoever. I used it for a day or two, but now when I try to log on, there is only a black screen with the message 'could not update ICEauthority file'. I have investigated on the web, but the solutions ...

Thanks once again ClixTrix. I'm sorry not to have replied sooner. I'm not having much luck, but I am very grateful for the citations. I keep getting messages: 'command not found', but I feel certain that eventually I shall succeed. I'll let you know when I do. (By the way, my earlier comment noted t...

Re: Help installing Samsung Printer

Thank you ClixTrix. Your reference produced the fastest and quickest connection I have achieved. Alas, I am still looking for a wireless connection. My previous router had a WPS button, but this one apparently does not, so that method is ruled out.
I appreciate your help.

Re: Help installing Samsung Printer

Many thanks for the comments. I have followed the instructions in several threads, including this one, and it is true that the best way to download the driver is from the HP site. I have done that so have the proper driver. I have been able to use the printer with USB. The problem is that I cannot f...

Re: Help installing Samsung Printer

I know this goes a long way back, and perhaps I should open a new topic. However, it is really a continuation of this one. I found the suggestions of JF007 very helpful, and I have followed them again in trying to re-install the same Samsung printer (M2000w). I must have downloaded the driver 20 tim...
