Re: zoom client

Strange, zoom runs on my reserve machine also running 18.3. There must be something wrong with my primary system but other than zoom it is good. Ian.

zoom client

Hi, I have downloaded and installed the zoom_amd64.deb package a couple of times. The zoom mint download page indicates that it is Version 5.1.422789.0705 and I need at least vsn 5. Every time I try to run zoom it tells me to update to 5 or better. Is this a zoom or Linux problem? Regards Ian.

System Settings fails to launch

Hi, when I click Menu/System settings it fails to launch. I had installed Skype and SystemSettings worked for an hour so then failed to launch. I find it hard to believe that Skype did anything bad. Any pointers on how to restore system settings would be greatly appreciated. I did remove Skype and r...

Re: Skype mess

I gave it this command in the terminal "cinnamon --replace &" then rebooted and that restored cinnamon but the System setting control centre still fails to launch and the volume icon is missing bottom right. I am still looking for ideas, Regards Ian.

I tried a couple of things then for no reason the System Settings Control Centre failed to launch and I also lost the volume icon bottom right.

Re: Brother mfcj470 wifi

I should have said that I am using Mint 18.3 and that I set up wifi using the printer KB and led display. It printed the test page as part of the setup so I must be almost there. Regards Ian.

Brother mfcj470 wifi

I have connected my mfcj470dw to the wifi and printed a test page. I do not see it on my wifi laptop. It works over usb on my desktop so It's not a pressing problem, just bugs me not being able to make it work over wifi. Regards Ian.

Success with Samba and gufw

Following these instructions (the reply by altair4) "https://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=157&t=185410#p960482" so far really promising.

Re: Samba restart and LM15 and LM18.3

I've not experimented with that one. There seems to be a number of ways on the web that may or may not do it on every Linux distribution. Samba and firewalls are not consistent. I'm experimenting with this info "https://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=157&t=185410#p960482" and it's looking quit...

Re: UFW Blocks samba

Ian again.
What is curious is disabling the FW then click to mount the directory then enable the FW you can access the files in the now mounted directory. Regards Ian.

Re: UFW Blocks samba

From the look of it I should stop fighting this one as like you said it's been around for years. I've also tried unblocking ports 22 and 88 to no avail. Also if you look at my previous post "Samba restart and LM15 and LM18.3" the latter part indicates that LM15 and LM18 samba versions work different...

I keep editing my /etc/samba/smb.conf file and doing sudo service smbd start stop restart they seem run okay but changes to smb.conf are not activated. sudo /etc/init.d/smbd start give the above result. A reboot does the job okay. I have two LM18.3 Cinnamon desktops and a LM15 Cinamon laptop and the...

Re: firefox error 26

I was doing better with LMDE. Last night I tried to install the adobe flash installer. It told me firefox was broken and I tried package repair from synaptic which gave a mess of errors. I guess the server was down. It was okay today but it did not get the cbc national news working. Since then firef...
