Re: scanning

Strange. When I used the same tool it installed both the printer and scanner drivers, and installing Simple Scan to scan stuff worked fine.

What is the printer model you're installing?

I voted dog (own two Shetland Sheepdogs)... and cat (owned by two Birman cats). 8) Funnily enough, the dogs and cats are all best mates - the cats just jump over the dogs if they're in the way, and o...

My Mint 17.1 went to the "4 dots" startup splash after I installed a new Nvidia graphics card - followed the above steps and my Mint splash screen is restored. Thanks WinterTroubles! 8)

Hi, I installed Mint 17.1 Cinnamon on my wife's Dell Inspiron 5520 laptop on Christmas Eve (she got sick of various Windows 7 issues) and while it's been very much a success in terms of usability and reliability to the point that my wife is now a Mint convert and says she's got a new computer all ov...

I'm not certain about specific "manga" creating requirements, but I've found Krita (http://krita.org) is a pretty good artistic program for comics in general.

Appreciate some advice re: importing iTunes library

I've been running Mint 17 (now 17.1) Cinnamon / MATE in dual-boot with Windows Vista for several months now, and have been absolutely loving the Mint experience to the point where I hardly boot into Windows much at all. :D Now I've just about brought over all my important files from my Windows parti...

Re: Game Suggestions

My favourite game at the moment is Oolite - a 21st century update of the classic "Elite" open sandbox space-trading game that is available on multiple platforms including Linux. It's free, and is easily moddable with (free) expansion packs to tailor the game to your liking. Website: http://oolite.org/

Re: Installed Compiz on Mint 17 MATE, but no change. Now wha

In Desktop Settings has the window manager been changed from Marco to Compiz? I didn't actually see in Desktop Settings (Menu -> Control Centre -> Desktop Settings -> Windows) - all I can see is a checkbox for "Use compositing". This may help . . .

[Solved] Installed Compiz on Mint 17 MATE, but no change.

So I thought I'd see what this Compiz window manager would do under Mint 17 MATE, so I installed both it and the CompizConfig Settings Manager from the Mint Software Manager, and it all seems to have installed fine. The trouble is, I can't seem to be able to get it to DO anything. I've set the "Enab...
