Double Sided Printing No Longer Works

For the past few months (since the first day I installed Linux Mint) I have had no problems with printing double sided. All of a sudden even though the settings appear in various programs the printer refuses to print double sided. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the printer as well as driver to n...

Re: Log confusion, help needed.

I think I just realized what may have happen. when the logs blew up on me last week I moved all the files in /var onto a separate logical volume and then mounted it at /var. When I moved the files I actually used rsync which I thought kept all the ownerships in tact. Maybe this didn't work the way I...

Re: Log confusion, help needed.

Thank you so much. That got the logging going again. Could you be so kind as to look at this list of /var/log/ and see if the ownerships of any of the others need to be revised. jeffrey-Studio-1737 jeffrey # ls -lash /var/log/ total 44M 4.0K drwxr-xr-x 15 root root 4.0K Apr 10 19:16 . 4.0K drwxr-xr-...

Re: Log confusion, help needed.

Here's the results I don't have a syslog or kern.log. Is there a way I can generate an event to force rsyslog to create them? I tried logger but it doesn't do it. xxx@xxx-Studio-xxx ~ $ ls -lh /var/log/syslog ls: cannot access /var/log/syslog: No such file or directory xxx@xxx-Studio-xxx ~ $ ls -lh ...

Log confusion, help needed.

Last week I had an incident where ufw.log went crazy and grew to 50GB. Also kern.log and syslog were filling up with same messages. I got into a panic mode because machine was getting ready to lock and booted with a live cd. I read that logrotate when forced should rebuild any missing log files so I...

Re: Mount Point Question

Very ironic you mention chown. I just took an old drive and started experimenting with LVM. I found out the hard way that each lv created is root controlled and you need to chown to work with them. I'm a little confused again with regard to mount points. I created mount points for the two lv's I cre...

Re: Mount Point Question

Thank you for waking me up. The folders are in /media/jeffrey not in /home/jeffrey so the folders belong to root.

Mount Point Question

As a new user I've been experimenting. I've been modifying my fstab to learn some things. In the process I have some empty folders where I was mounting a drive. When I'm logged in I can't delete these folders and I guess I have to switch to root to get rid of them. Can you please tell me if I’m corr...
