Re: Problem printing PDF file

Thank you, kc1di I'm glad I ran across your suggestions. I just installed Evince. I have just been trying it for a little while on some pdf files that kept failing to print correctly. So far, Evince has been working for me. I also wanted to say (for what it's worth) that I haven't seen this on any 3...

Recent update of LM18 broke my internet.

I am running Linux Mint Mate (Sarah) edition. I am currently updated at kernel 4.4.0-66. I had been updating Linux Mint pretty regularly since kernel 4.4.0-21. I believe the update to 4.4.0-65 might be what broke the internet stuff. I think the update screwed up some configuration file, but I don't ...

Re: (SOLVED) Massive internet problems since update to LM 18.1

I have a triple boot setup: Windows 10, Linux Mint 13, and Linux Mint 18. Windows and Linux Mint 13 connect to the internet over ethernet normally (so I know my hardware is OK). Linux Mint 18 started screwing up with connecting to the internet after the second to the last update (I think). I can sti...

Enter the following commands (my linux drive is /dev/sdb and Windows is on /dev/sda. Adjust your parameters as necessary): $ sudo moun...

Re: [Solved] Need to recover windows 10 as well as need dual boot

Hi. I've been following these posts. I have a similar problem, but I am booting Windows from /dev/sda and am booting linux from /dev/sdb (with a single partition). Somehow, I blew away the linux boot parameter from the mbr. I can boot windows, but can no longer boot linux (mint 18). Here is what I ...

Re: Cannot access floppies in Linux Mint 13: No Medium in Dr

I just remembered a set of utilities called mtools. It came installed on my Linux Mint 13, so you probably have it too. You need to run it from a command line, either as root or (probably better) as a sudo user. mtools has commands like mdir and mcopy, which are like the old DOS commands dir and cop...

Re: Cannot access floppies in Linux Mint 13: No Medium in Dr

I am seeing the same problem. I have a dual boot setup and my floppy drive boots from a floppy and I can access floppies from Windows 7. I remember a similar problem with Ubuntu 10.04. I found a mount utility that worked around a known but. I can't seem to find this utility on Linux Mint 13. I check...
