Re: Corona virus (COVID-19)

Wife has been admitted to hospital for her heart. I went to visit yesterday AM and I had to "sign in". using one of their pens because I did not expect this. They asked a set of questions, i.e. the usuals about overseas etc. but one made me laugh. "Have you been close to anyone who is unwell?" D'uh...

Re: Don't understand timeshift

I prefer to use Timeshift because it keeps all of my Preferences. if you just use the backups of /home stored somewhere, a New Install requires me untold hours of grief restoring my Preferences. to preclude that, I also keep copies of Aptik backups Firefox alone, contains so many Special Settings fo...

Re: Don't understand timeshift

Re: Epson ET-2550 decided to start ignoring jobs

when I opened the Printers box, it shows a green check indicating "all is well". You probably know by now--the check mark indicates the printer is the default printer. I use my printer in both wi-fi configuration as well as local usb. imho your issue is related to your network connection. Perhaps y...

Re: Don't understand timeshift

when I was a Newbie, I kept 5 Daily backups, and tons of other manual backups. now, after a couple years experience, I just do a Manual Backup when something major changes on my PC. And I label each backup as to what has occurred, or is going to occur. https://i.imgur.com/07xMFim.png If there is a m...

Re: Epson ET-2550 decided to start ignoring jobs

fwiw I have a ET2650 working both usb and wi-fi. Should be close to the same settings as ET2550. I will share my settings if it will help. I would appreciate that very much. I keep such items in my Notebook "Evernote.com" In retrospect, it is obvious that the "new Network" caused all of the problems.

Re: Epson ET-2550 decided to start ignoring jobs

I am now back on the first laptop that is/was in trouble. I just now made one simple change to the printer setting, applied this to the URI: lpd://10.0.0.9:515/PASSTHRU and the Test Page worked like clock work.... I've learned a lot with this thread....

Brian, I would appreciate it if you would stop "talking down to people".... I am now using my old standby laptop, an ASUS TP500L I looked at the CUPS settings for the Epson printer, and as I expected the IP address was vastly different, still on the old 192.x.x.x range Printer Location Old.png I hav...

Re: Epson ET-2550 decided to start ignoring jobs

that command is returning w/o a response now. You are not bothered by this? You do not see it as unusual? For a printer on the network, I would see the outcome as impossible. As https://www.epson.com.au/products/ecotank/ET-2550_Specs.asp tells us, the Epson ET-2550 is an AirPrint device. MOBILE DEV...

Re: Hats of to our kids educators

Alcohol was banned here in my state at first, but that lasted about 2 days, then it became an "essential business" ? Our local "roadhouse" or Saloon, whatever you want to call it, has decided to close until the "social distancing" is not an issue anymore. Really hard to keep a distance from the next...

Minor hijack... I just upgraded to FF 75 and think the new zooming address bar is a horror. Making a note here that you can revert to the old address bar by setting the following in about:config to false: browser.urlbar.openViewOnFocus browser.urlbar.update1 browser.urlbar.update1.interventions bro...

Epson ET-2550 decided to start ignoring jobs [ resolved ]

when I installed 19.3 Cinnamon, the install package found my online printer and installed it w/o me having to do anything.
