Re: Mint-Logo Plymouth Theme

Hmmm! :? You don't see any lines containing lines like this: Window.SetBackgroundTopColor (0, 0, 0); Window.SetBackgroundBottomColor (0, 0, 0); These are where you should add the RGB values. Should be able to do a gradient as well. Maybe try adding the lines if they don't exist using the RGB that yo...

Re: DeVeDe file increase in size.

I have ConvertXtoDVD loaded in VB and Windows! With that I can load 4 episodes each of 750Mbs, transcode and burn to a 4.7gbs DVD. I used to be able to do the same thing with DeVeDe using the default settings. Now it's impossible. Just out of interest I took a 750Mb .avi transcoded to .iso and it c...

Re: Mint-Logo Plymouth Theme

Hi there. You can try 84, 107, 126 which should be the RGB value. It's quite easy to use Gimp to get the right numbers by opening the color changer > type in the hexadecimal number in the html notation box then hit enter > on the right side of the little window read the last three columns for the RG...

Re: DeVeDe file increase in size.

Hi beeman Usually the only way that this can happen is if the source files are too large to begin with before the encoding process is run. Make sure and check this before starting if you didn't before. Sometimes a user must manually reduce the size (quality, video bitrate, etc) in an effort to fit t...

Re: Brother HL-2140 wastes tons of paper

Thanks for the output. OK the "Foomatic/Postscript" driver is a known cause for this type of error - what I call paper spitting. What you can do is try to find one of these other drivers (which should be on your system): Try first: Foomatic/hl1250 Try next: Foomatic/hpijs-pcl5e If you have problems ...

Re: Brother HL-2140 wastes tons of paper

Hi nuagedeboucane,

It sounds like the symptoms of a bad printer driver to me.

Check which driver that you are using and post it back here then I can try an help you look in to it further.

One way is to use: http://localhost:631/printers/ then click on your printer.

Regards,
