Re: open vpn instaleren via deze link lukt niet.

Ja, dat had ik wel gelezen, en ja mijn plaatje doet het prima.

Het is jouW plaatje wat het niet doet. Ik kan klikken wat ik wil met er gebeurt niets.
Jij hebt in jouW antwoord zelfs mijn plaatje mee gekopieerd, en ook daarop kan ik kikken en het verschijnt in het groot, dus hoezo doet hij het niet?

Re: open vpn instaleren via deze link lukt niet.

Ik heb net de handleiding doorgelopen en heb er nu een vpn verbinding bij. Je moet gewoon doen wat er staat, stap voor stap.
Sorry voor deze misschien harde woorden maar zo is het. Het werkt wel.

Re: Epson printer driver question

I own an XP-530 Epson printer and did this to make it work: First you install the gutenprint package (I use Manjaro Linux at the moment but Mint probably has this in the repos as well) Then open your browser and type: localhost:631 This will open the CUPS webpage which will help you to add your prin...

Re: Debian vs Ubuntu memory usage

I absolutely love Mint Debian edition, but don't use it. :( I tried it years ago and now the new LMDE2, and like I said absolutely love it. I don't remember the specific problem I had the first one, but the current gives me freezes, cause unknown for the time being. Definitely another try when next...

Re: Linux Mint 18.1 “Serena” KDE released!

I dl'd it and ran it from a USB stick, but wasn't real impressed. I used to be a big fan of KDE but it's gotten way too bloated over the years. I wanted to see what "X" apps would do but was so turned off by the whole experience I didn't bother with a lot. If I get a spare HDD kicking around I'll i...

Re: system slowdown when copy files (cinnamon)

No, not a bug. Although CPU is hardly used and so is memory, there is however a lot of disc activity which causes other processes to stop (almost). If an other process needs to read from or write to disk and you are using the disc(s) to copy files the other process has to wait, causing the slowdown....

I was able to get it working using the XP-620 driver and as for the scanner part, I used this: https://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=42&t=225289 Where did you get that driver from?

Re: Help Epson XP-430

Don't bother. The website contains maybe 10% of all Epson printers and yours is not among them. I used the gutenprint package which includes the so called ppd files, one for each printer. Use that to setup your printer so that it can do what it could do on Windows as well. With the native Linux ESC-...

Re: Linux Mint Arch Edition?

Since a couple of months I use Manjaro and I must say I really like it. It is snappy, it is light-weight (and yes I use KDE-full), uses little RAM. Thinking about the OP's request I must say, having Mint on top of Arch instead of still on top of Ubuntu could be a nice combination. But as others wrot...

Re: Im exploring the KDE environment.

Good of you to have come to the bright side of the force. Just read whatever you can get your hands on about KDE, you'll see there is so much more to it than you first think. Enjoy it, I do that for several years already, since about 2011 when Gnome killed Gnome, Ubuntu invented Unity and Mint went ...

Re: Chrome(ium) or Firefox? Poll.

It's the safe browsing feature that you find in Firefox too. You can disable it if you want, but this feature is not for spying. It's for protection. That's nice, but passing information on to Google still results in spying, no mater what the stated purpose is. And you still believe that doing it y...

It will be interesting to see what happens if the OP posts a similar message on the Debian forums. :mrgreen: Would that make any difference? Looking at your post you just mock the OP. OP, start using Manjaro-Linux, it is a rolling release based on Arch-Linux with several desktop environments you ca...

This is my Conky at the moment. I like to have it with a lighter background though, but didn't manage to get a good color combination which is nice on the eyes and still well readable.

Re: How to make soft symlinks (proper shortcuts)

I am very sorry, I messed up. Warfrat is completely right, the file you are linking to comes first, followed by the symlink itself.

I put in the braces to indicate you need to fill in your own filenames, but I probably had to write that as explanation.
