BTW, if I clean up the / partition of my disk drive I will lose the swap. Do you think that will impact my system. negat...

Re: HP laserjet 1018

No, my printer had been connected all the along. When you say replug do you mean the USB cable or power?

So do you think I should uninstall and try again?

Cheers

wallpapers [SOLVED]

Can any one tell me how I can access the default wallpapers in Mint 17?

Is it /usr/ directory? If so, where or which subdirectory. I would like to print and frame a couple of them.

Thanks

autotomatic system updates

Hello, I have setup 32 bit Mint 17 on my mothers desktop who is a techno phobe. I don't want her to have to bother with
authentication each time the system has new updates. Is there a way I can tell the system not to ask for password each time it needs to update.?

Streaming audio on Firefox 30.0

I realize this issue is very likely a problem at the vendor's end but thought I would ask anyway. I am not able to get audio when streaming from this radio station. All other station work fine. But I find if I use chrome or opera everything is fine. So it has to be a compatibility issue between the ...
