Re: Adding a network printer

For me it didn't find any printers. I removed the default hplip (3.15.2) and installed 3.17.11 downloaded (some time ago) from HP's site. The Mint's own "printers" worked, but not until I gave it the IP address as the "device URI". The HP device manager says: HPLIP cannot detect printers in your net...

[Given up] Adding a network printer

I've been trying to figure out a way to add a network printer using its name, not IP address. I'm using Mint 18.3 and the printer is HP Color Laserjet Pro M277dw. My ADSL-box/router (TeleWell EA 501) shows the printer with name NPIB88B68, but I have no idea how to connect to that. I _think_ the ADSL...

Re: Windows start jumping back and forth on laptop

Oops. I seem to have forgotten to update...
I disabled the touchpad, and the problem hasn't emerged since.

Re: [SOLVED] A calendar for Linux?

That app finder ling... Thanks!

Maybe, if I get mad at the Evolution, I might try Day Planner.

Re: Printer worked for months suddenly stopped

And from the CUPS you can set debug-level for logs. That might give some further info. Under Administration/Server: Save debugging information for troubleshooting and Administration/Server/Edit configuration file: LogLevel warn -> LogLevel debug (Or the same changes in the /etc/cups/cupsd.conf) The ...

I think I'll stick with Evolution for now.

Thanks for all involved.

Re: A calendar for Linux?

I understand that ReminderFox only works if the web browser is open?
In that case it won't work for me.

I think I'm pretty much left with Evolution (even if it seems to be unstable) and KOrganizer (which probably means all the KDE libraries too).
And I have to accept all kinds of integrations...

Re: A calendar for Linux?

I installed california. Is there a way to configure it somehow? At the moment the calendar is light blue and I think there is some text, but it's just a bit darker blue, so I can't read it. Actually, I'm not absolutely sure if there is some text there. Also, is there a way to set or unset alarm for ...

Re: A calendar for Linux?

I'm running Mint 17.3 (64-bit). And I think I'll settle for Evolution, if I must have the Evolution back end installed anyway... (California uses it.) And Evolution is in the repo - like I mentioned, I already tried it once. ...or then not: I changed the time of a test-reminder and it seemed to cras...

Re: A calendar for Linux?

Osmo seems to be almost what I need, but not quite... It doesn't make a pop-up, so it would be easy for me to miss the notifications. :( And gnome calendar doesn't seem to be in the repo... Not that it would be a big obstacle or anything... I just wonder if it's worth the trouble... Aha, gnome calen...

nss-myhostname?

What does this mean?
Found it in the dmesg when checking something else.

Code: Select all

[133671.858999] systemd-hostnamed[17371]: Warning: nss-myhostname is not installed. Changing the local hostname might make it unresolveable. Please install nss-myhostname!

Re: A calendar for Linux?

I'm using Cinnamon, and Osmo installation didn't seem to install any such stuff.
Only two libraries, I think.

I'm trying out Osmo now.
The Gnome calendar might be another one to try.

Re: A calendar for Linux?

Yes. I have programs to do different things, and I don't want any integration. And the last thing I need is sharing any info with sites, like outlook.com (I've had an account there since Hotmail was new). Many of the sites are known about their "security". Outlook.com, Facebook, LinkedIn, ... All of...

I'll try Osmo.

Do I have to leave Osmo open or does it have a daemon?

[SOLVED] A calendar for Linux?

Does anyone have suggestions of simple local calendar programs?
That is: with just calendar functionalities without internet activities like calendar sharing, email and stuff.
Just calendar entries and reminders.
I'm using Cinnamon.
