parallel port printer SOLVED

I've used the same hp dj1120c printer on the same computer in Mint 13, & mint 16. Now that I'm running Mint 17, the printer will not configure. I've traced the problem to the fact that the system only sees the parallel port, thus the printer as root! I need to know how to somehow get the port & thus...

Re: 16 => 17 (Cinnamon) : shortcuts don't work anymore

Hopefully you used the mint backup tool to backup your software selection. You need to re-install your applications, since newer versions are available on the qiana/trusty repositories. If you made the backup, just point the backup tool to the text file and magically all your apps (those available o...

Re: ways to upgrade from Mint 16 to Mint 17

Many thanks to the OP! I just successfully upgraded from Mint 16 to Mint 17 using method 3. Despite the warning about mislabled sources, mine came through the upgrade correctly labled as qiana and trusty. This saved me a huge amount of time as most of my configuration settings came through perfectly...

Several small issues !

I have been running Mint 17 XFCE from a usb hard drive, on an older Lenovo desktop. (dual core pentium D, 2 gb ram) This is the third version (13, and 16) I've run this way. Computer has win XP on internal sata drive, and in the cases of 13, and 16, I would get a grub boot menu. I do not get the men...

Re: LM 17 XFCE

Thanks I2k4! I am sticking with Mint 16 for the time being. I did download and install the XFCE 17 final release today (on a usb drive). 232mb of updates after the first boot. It does behave better than the fully updated release candidate. I believe that it would be ok to install on my laptop, but I...

Re: LM 17 XFCE

Been running Mint 16 XFCE for a while now, and love it. Beginning to evaluate 17 on an extra hard drive, and have noticed one puzzling behaviour that I can't figure out. Opening the menu in 17 results in about a three of four second delay--not a deal-breaker, but annoying. I've also noticed the syst...

Re: Support for: SATA/ IDE to USB 2.0 Adapter

Hi Virus,
I'm running mint16 xfce (32 bit), and regularly use the one in your first link. I have several old hard drives that I usefor backups with Clonezilla, and it works fine with both IDE, and SATA drives on my HP laptop.

Regards
Bob
