Re: Epson SX420W installation on Mint

Also just little FYI

In truth it is EASIER then windows bro.

All about being in the know lol.

To add as a wireless, is simple.

Just search via ip address as a network printer.

Printer must be connected to the wifi network first. Use the printers LCD menu to view its assigned ip.

Re: Mint 11 won't let me access my 8gb Geek Squad USB stick

Might be more simple then that.

Download and install gparted

plug in the flash drive and using gparted try telling it to mount to / AKA root.

remove the drive and then plug it back in

Now click menu then computer

Little luck she will now auto mount.

Re: Wireless slows down when on battery

yes and no

best to make a simple custom launcher and pin it to the dock or panel

Simple as click and enter password

remember to check the box to use terminal with it due to sudo being needed.
