Hello @ turboscrew - I'm running Linux Mint 19 64 bit with the Cinnamon desktop. Memory usage looks to be about 832MB running the desktop by itself, and 1.1 GB with Firefox running. If I remember correctly, that's about the same as LM18.
Great, thanks!

Re: Mint 19 on T400 - experiences?

It's just that I don't know how well the test form DVD/memory stick shows what's like to run an installed system. At least DVD is pretty slow. I just wondered if someone has first hand experience. I know there are several T400 machines running Mint 17.x. And I think some even running Mint 18.x. Of c...

[Solved] Mint 19 on T400 - experiences?

Has anyone installed Mint 19 on T400?
If, what are the experiences? Is Mint 19 too heavy on T400 (4GB RAM)?

I'm thinking of upgrading from 17.3 (Cinnamon) due to newer HW, and since the support is going to end soonish anyway.
I've been happy with 17.3/Cinnamon.

Re: Help for Lenovo ThinkPad T400 + Linux Mint

I've been running Linux Mint 17.3 Cinnamon for years on T400 (4GB RAM) without problems. I'm actually writing this on the very machine. It still feels faster than Windows 10 on newer laptops (like my work machine - some Dell) and much more stable. (I often refer to Mint as "Ubuntu stable", even if M...

Re: Adding a network printer

Status update: It may be that adding this printer by name is not possible. I found another URI-form, but it didn't work with this printer. hp:/net/Color_LaserJet_MFP_M277dw?zc=NPIB88B68 Also tried hp:/net/Color_LaserJet_MFP_M277dw?serial=NPIB88B68 but it didn't work either.

Re: Adding a network printer

I guess Mint people should get a bit worried, if Debian has newer hplip than Mint. :-D

Re: plug-in HP Color Laserjet Pro M277dw

good work; working away on your own computer pays dividends; I was curious where you got hp-setup -i from; (I see now it means interactive); if one does man hp-setup in the terminal; and full-page it to read, there are a host of options to explore; let us know when you think the printer is behaving...

Re: Adding a network printer

Status update: Hplip works partly. It detects the printer, and the 'print settings' and 'printer control' seems to work. What doesn't work is 'status' and 'supplies'. On both pages it says "information not available for this device". The 3.16.x on my Debian machine everything works, but it's from th...

Re: Adding a network printer

What the ... The hplip just started working by itself? I did nothing, but it suddenly started to find the printer... (well, I did some port scanning, but that shouldn't have any effects.) Now what's left is figuring out if the name can be used instead of IP. Hmm, if there are no printers, the HP dev...

Re: Adding a network printer

BTW, The HP device manager says: HPLIP cannot detect printers in your network. This may be due to existing firewall settings blocking the required ports. When you are in a trusted network environment, you may open the ports for network services like mdns and slp in the firewall. For detailed steps f...

Installed it, but it didn't help.
I thought it was installed, but hp-check revealed it wasn't, so I installed it.

Re: Adding a network printer

I didn't install any plugins, and I haven't been asked to. The hp-setup starts fine, but doesn't find anything. I don't even know where to find the plugin. Oh, and looks like 3.15.2 is the latest hplip in Mint repos - even in Mint 19. Now that I knew what to look for, I found out about hp-plugin - t...

Re: Adding a network printer

It would also be nice to find a hplip-package that supports the printer. Hplip 3.15.2 doesn't.
I installed hplip 3.17.11 from HP website (downloaded quite a while ago), but I'd prefer a proper package.

Re: Adding a network printer

You can kludge a workaround for this easily by giving the printer a fixed IP address in the router and adding whatever name you want to refer to it as in the hosts file. You'll find it at /etc/hosts. Every router I've had enables you to exclude a range of IP addresses so it won't dynamically alloca...
