Re: Brother-HL-3170CDW-series two-sided not available

Actually, not solved :-( Tried printing and prints 2 pages per side. I checked and the default is to print 2 pages per side, however this should be 1 page per side. Seems to be 2 paths to printer settings and 1 path is not saving. Path 1 is correct: Menu > Applications > Administration > Printers > ...

Re: How to uninstall ALL settings from a program?

Okay, all fixed with some help from the Linux Mint chat room.

Re: How to uninstall ALL settings from a program?

ProgramName is Remmina. Need to delete Remmina as Remmina saves the view settings. The view settings are the problem as it becomes stuck on Full Screen view, which is no good compared to the Scroll view. Scroll view allows a larger viewing screen, as the Full screen shrinks all monitors into 1 viewi...

Mic not found for Google Hangouts

Hello,
my LinuxMint 18 laptop internal mic works for Audacity recording, however Google Hangouts could not find the mic.
If I close Audacity, Google Hangouts can find the mic.
Is there some program to allow LinuxMint to allow the mic to be used on 2 programs at the same time?

VirtualBox install only has 32-bit options?

Hello, I downloaded VirtualBox 5.1.22 r115126 (Qt5.5.1) onto Linux Mint 18.1 Serena 64-bit, Kernel Linux 4.8.0-52-generic x86_64, MATE 1.16.1.
When adding an OS, the only options are 32-bit Windows systems, but I need 64-bit. What is wrong?

Re: Wi-Fi usually not connecting to mobile's hotspot

So, Mint laptop is not connecting to home Wi-Fi aswell now.
Other devices can connect to the home Wi-Fi.
I don't think the Wi-Fi card is broken...seems to be some odd Mint config issue.

Re: Remmina not showing pop down panel to exit screen

OMG, this is finally fixed!
Remmina had an update. Update didn't work, so had to update from an untrusted PPA source.

Re: Remmina not showing pop down panel to exit screen

Ok, I've installed Mint 18.1, but Remmina is doing the same issue. Remmina works on older version of Mint. Would be nice not having to restart the client Mint computer. Remmina FAQ says they fixed this issue and I should update to the latest. I'm running Remmina 1.1.2 and ran the commands for the up...

Re: Crackle on new 3.5mm speakers

Ok, works when speaker USB power plugged into machine2 and speakers 3.5mm audio cable in this machine1.

Re: Wi-Fi usually not connecting to mobile's hotspot

I reset the mobile and reset Mint 18 and seems to be connecting.
Would be good if I could use a Mint 18 command to reset the Wi-Fi network, which would be quicker than manually resetting devices.
