Re: Welke linux versie naast win 10 op oudere machine.

Ik heb ooit een aantal lichte versies bekeken zoals Xubuntu en Lubuntu, maar kwam altijd weer terug bij Mint. Deze vind ik toch het meest compleet en zeer stabiel. Als jouw systeem krachtig genoeg is om Windows-10 te draaien, dan kun je zonder meer Linux Mint installeren. Zelf heb ik versie 17.3 met...

Re: update-foutmelding

Pjotr, bedankt voor je advies. Overeenkomstig met "pakketbronnen" in LM18.3 is in LM17.3: "Synaptic Pakketbeheer". Maar de onderverdeling is geheel afwijkend; ik vind daarin geen verbinding met mijn foutmeldingen. ik overweeg om LM17.3 in deze computer te gaan vervangen door een schone installatie ...

I get a lot of upgrade for a browser that I have never installed. Like can I use the Chromium Browser to goto Facebook, if I install it?
I use Chromium all the time on my 32-bit machine. Works great! By the way, on the 32-bit platform Google does no longer support Chrome.

Good luck,

Re: Kernel vraag

@duckduckgo66

Het is verstandig om je te beperken tot LTS-kernels (LTS = Long Term Support).
Je zit al op 4.4 dus als je toch wilt upgraden, kun je het beste overstappen op 4.9
Via het Grub-menu kun je altijd terug naar de vorige kernel.

Succes,

Re: Geheugen gebruik

Re: Geheugen gebruik

Ik had ooit hetzelfde probleem met XP. Veel te lang mee gewacht om dit te vervangen door Linux Mint. Mag ik aannemen dat je nu een dual-boot systeem hebt? Zo ja, dan zou ik om te beginnen het handige programma 'Grub Customizer' downloaden en installeren. Daarna start je Linux op en delete je de Wind...

Re: Kernel vraag

Als je de kernel update, is het mijn ervaring dat je het beste binnen de bestaande reeks kunt blijven.
Ik zit zelf op de 4.4 reeks en heb dan de hoogste versie (113). Ik ga niet zomaar overstappen op 4.5
Het programma Ukuu is erg handig om kernels te installeren.

Re: GRUB 2 does not start from BIOS anymore

MBR is on sda, cylinder 0, track 0, sector 0. The program does not show that, which is normal procedure.

Re: Upgrading to 18.0 from 17.3 fails to find repository

It seems that Microsoft is able to upgrade from Windows-7 and 8 to Windows-10, but the Linux Community is unable to upgrade from version 17.3 to 18...? Hmm, I think I will stick to 17.3 until it expires, somewhere in 2019.

Re: Linux Mint 18 “Sarah” Xfce – BETA Release

Hi there, It seems like an old bug is back. When printing via an HP-2510 network printer, the error message "Printer error HP-Deskjet-2510 cups waiting for job completed" pops up. However, printing is fine and the output document is ok. It's more of a 'cosmetic' error. According to several forums on...

Re: How to add scanner

Concerning VueScan: When running under root, the programs seems to work, but the output is a strange test page. It seems you will have to buy it first in order to get things to work. That's a bit silly, in my opinion. Perhaps I might be willing to buy the program, but only after a test period of app...

Re: How to add scanner

Probably a missing driver in the Linux kernel. I have the same problem with a CanoScan 5600F. There is simply no driver for this scanner.
This is the main (and only) reason why I keep my Windows partition intact.

Re: login but no account yet

I noticed this strange behavior too when installing Mint 17.2 on another HP laptop.
While thinking what to do, the login screen suddenly disappeared and the install proceeded normally.
What Pierre says: This took some 10 - 15 seconds.

Re: Your opinions on Windows 10 so far..

Most of the time I'm on Mint 17.2, but I nevertheless upgraded from Windows version 8.1 to version 10. To my surprise I even got Paint Shop Pro 8 (released in 2003) working. Not bad at all. On the other hand, I mainly use Windows for backing up all partitions from time to time. It's not really my "w...

Re: Set up wifi repeater

You might want to change the radio channel on the router. Do not use channels above 11.
I know from experience that these high channels can cause problems on Mint.

You might want to try to change the video driver. That greatly improved the speed of my HP laptop.
Just run the Driver Manager en choose the second best driver (fgirx-updates).

Chrome passwords gone

After upgrading to Mint 17.2 XFCE suddenly all my Chrome passwords were gone. I used my latest backup
to roll back and tried the upgrade again. However, again the same behavior. All my Chrome passwords
were gone again. Is this a bug in Mint 17.2 or am I doing something wrong?
