Re: Why would the WiFi connection just quit connecting?

Just to prove the WiFi is stable, this is a different laptop, an ACER Aspire 5253 that you guys helped fix up as a backup...
and I am very happy to have it, slow it might be, but on the internet, it is just as fast as my desktop.

and it proves the AT&T ADLS WiFi router is okay.

SOLVED ITSELF - Why would the WiFi connection just quit connecting?

I have been using the laptop all day long on my AT&T WiFi router... Closed the lid, came back in a little while, and it refuses to connect to that WiFi signal now. I have deleted connection, and restored it, still nothing. Turned on the Hotspot on my cellphone and it instantly jumps to that WiFi sig...

SOLVED - Can't download PDF documents anymore

Don't know when this started, and can't remember when it was working like it should. I have had several miscues with other things and maybe something killed my Mint 18.3 from being able to download a PDF document. This is what I see when I try to download a PDF https://i.imgur.com/WYs5G4R.png My Sys...

Re: CUPS error when trying to add Network Printer

Well, as that page explained, it is a bit tedious getting through the EULA message, I indeed screwed it up twice, before I was able to enter "y" and let it install. Unfortunately, I am still getting the CUPS error message. There are two different TAR files I can try to install. Do I have to remove t...

Re: ACER Aspire 5253-BZ602 is sooooo slow

You definitely want to get Cinnamon off that machine and put XFCE on it. And do all the speed-up tricks that Pjotr linked to. Done.... and this ACER Aspire 5253-BZ602 is much snappier now. Decided to just download the XFCE version and reformat the whole thing from scratch. Not going to add any heav...

SOLVED - ACER Aspire 5253-BZ602 is sooooo slow - XFCE to the Rescue

I was given an old notebook a year ago, and when I tried to use it on Win7 it was a sluggard beyond belief. So, I thought I would put Linux Mint 18.3 on it..... Better? nope, just as bad. Firefox 54.x and when I do the ALT-B for Bookmarks, it just waits and waits and waits.... Ask for a website, and...

That's because the file is now gone. And yay! Glad it's all sorted for you, at long last. No more WINE for you!

On that page have you tried clicking on "Forecast for Collinsville, OK > 36.359 -95.811 > 267 m" underneath North Maple Road KOKCOLLI7 near the upper left-hand side? That will give you a new Collinsville page with the option to "Change" station. Maybe one of the others is working. Pick one closest ...

Re: SOLVED - Wine in Menu - Want to remove it from Menu

ah so, my education in Linux is still going on :lol:


I reissued that command with -v and it did this:

john@john-TP500LA ~ $ rm -r -v ~/.local/share/applications/wine*
rm: cannot remove '/home/john/.local/share/applications/wine*': No such file or directory
john@john-TP500LA ~ $

Re: Wine in Menu - Want to remove it from Menu

If wine is not installed and you've removed ~/.wine, try this: rm -r ~/.local/share/applications/wine* and see if the menu is better. In fluxbox this stuff is as trivially easy as it should be - one reason why I love it! Yes, I think I errored in just uninstalling Wine before uninstalling the appli...
