Re: What made you switch to Linux Mint?

This is what made me switch back too the other, small list there are more. ... Sorry that you've had such a bad experience with Linux. :( sounds like he ran the gamut of distros with some expectation they would all be similar, not realizing that many are deliberately different. It's not for everybo...

Re: Network printer connection problem on my desktop

Doing a little more playing around in printer settings (on the desktop), saw where I needed to allow it to be seen and finally got it to see the printer but now I have 'transport endpoint not connected'. Everything I find on Google is old and doesn't appear to work for Sonya.

Re: Network printer connection problem on my desktop

Just checked my laptop, while it sees the printer and has it installed (generic driver) it doesn't see the printer when I try to print. I also keep getting a Printer error (device name 'connecting to device').
Checked settings: 'Idle - Unable to locate printer.'

Network printer connection problem on my desktop

Searched and didn't see any thread addressing this problem and I've also done unsuccessful Google searches addressing my issue so; I have an Epson XP446 printer (WiFi), running Mint 18.2 on my Dell Inspiron 17R and on my home built desktop. The laptop saw the printer right away with no issues (that ...

New Browser

Not sure if this goes here but over the last month I've been trying out the Brave browser. It's designed for privacy and it's fast, much faster than either Firefox or Chrome. I'm not an IT guy so I can't give detailed info so if anyone is interested you'll have to research it yourselves.

Re: Which do you prefer: Cinnamon or XFCE?

Re: What made you switch to Linux Mint?

In 2008 I decided I didn't like Win Vista and installed Ubuntu which was the only user friendly Linux distro I had heard about at the time. I continued to use Ubuntu until they introduced Unity which at the time looked like it had been designed by some kid on an Etch-a-Sketch at which time I switche...

Hello

Actually joined in 2012, honestly don't remember joining. Had been an Ubuntu then Mint user until Win 7 came out but since Win 8 was a no go and Win 10 isn't going to work out for me I spent a couple of weeks distro testing and to make a long story short settled on Mint Cinnamon with the Cinnamenu a...

Re: Dual Boot - got stuck trying to replace Mint 12 with Min

Never mind, decided to use Mint 13, had no issues installing it, gave me the option to install alongside Win7. Mint 15 didn't provide that option.

Dual Boot - got stuck trying to replace Mint 12 with Mint 15

Looked around and can't find a topic on my issue, maybe I don't know how to ask the question.
I have a dual boot with Win7 and Mint 12 and am considering replacing the Mint 12 with Mint 15. After I click "something else" and continue I'm lost.
