Re: How to Fix Brother Printer?

On the Brother download page you should use the installer app instead of the individual deb files. I would make sure no printer is configured on system and start with the installer app. I run a MFC-9125CN via its built in network card but you can do USB. I frown on Wireless as there are too many pro...

Re: No video from camera...

Hello Gary, I think the jump from 18 to 19 broke mesa. I also think that trying to re install mesa will probably remove a lot of other software and lead you down a rabbit hole. It would be quicker and best to backup your home directory and wipe / install the latest Mint. Then restore your personal f...

Re: No video from camera...

I did a bit more research (always happy to add to my knowledge base) and I think you have a problem with 'mesa' which provides opengl. Im running a AMD x480 card in my box but I did a check for the libraries needed to run it and would like to compare incase your missing something. Obviously the upgr...

Re: No video from camera...

OpenGL: renderer: N/A v: N/A direct render: N/A

Yep. Thats the problem in a nutshell. Now we have validated the issue we have to come up with a fix.

Why is there no Renderer? Hummm.... Time to start searching around.

Re: Can't compile from source - /usr/bin/ld: cannot find Scrt1.o: No such file or directory

When you do get this compiled, What exactly are you going to do with it?
This can be used for practical jokes(?) such as interfering with a co-worker’s radio or for malign purposes such as cheating GPS receivers used to track valuable merchandise or get ships lured off-course.

If you go into system settings and then to drivers and see what drivers you have to pick from. Im thinking you might have two choices available. Post what you find. I am almost sure this is a video driver issue of some sort with GLX. Lets see if GLX is working? In a term window type in 'glxgears' an...

Re: Dell laptop gets extremely slow when it starts using disk swapfile

I fired up my VM of Mint 19.1 and it indeed shows a swap file instead of the whole partition. Perhaps this has something to do with the availibility of an extra partition to put a swap partition. If not you get a swap file? However, My VM runs good with a swap file. I guess we can rule that out. Ca...

Re: No video from camera...

This appears to be a video issue of some sort. Are you running the correct driver for your intel graphics? Did you get an update and forget to just reboot (i.e. new kernel or driver)? I see the GLX error in the startup log. Its not a cam fault as VLC does not have an issue as you state. Its a render...

I do believe code tags are what you see in the editor when making a post here.

Bold
Italic
Underscore

Re: Dell laptop gets extremely slow when it starts using disk swapfile

IMHO, I would look for some more ram and take the swap back down to about 8 gigs. Get your system up to 8 gigs. I will reduce the swap file to 8 gigs, that's not a problem. But adding more RAM would be a problem for this machine, it would be just too complicated. I still don't understand why Window...
