Modem still flashing when laptop on suspend

When I put my laptop in suspend, I later notice that the activity light on the modem is blinking. Is someone accessing my computer? My apartment supplies free DSL and everyone is on it. Is it possible that someone could be reading my files. OR, does Linux Mint do housekeeping on its files while the ...

Re: HP Deskjet all in one 2512

Thanks so much! I went to the site and followed the instructions to install it and it works. I clicked on simple scan and it worked! No reason for Windows 7. Now all I have to do is find out how to reclaim the windows 7 partition and reformat it. Maybe I should just use gparted to format the whole d...

Re: HP Set Me Free

Where do I get that driver? How do I install it? I just bought the same printer for the same reasons. I can't wait to get rid of Windows 7, talk about invasive! Thanks, Mary

HP Deskjet all in one 2512

Hi, I just got a new HP 2512 because I needed a scanner also and it had good reviews. The printer installed like a dream. But, I can't get the scanner to work. Do I need two separate drivers for printing and scanning? The scanning and printer driverr were installed together in Windows 7, so I know i...

Re: Windows preventing install of other OS...

Thanks for your response. I guess that is what I will do also. I want to make sure that the laptop was designed to run on Windows 7 and then in the future not to update the bios, in case the big M decides to make it retroactive on bios updates. Who know? I certainly don't trust them. The thing I don...

Windows preventing install of other OS...

Hi, I am looking for a newer laptop. A new one would be cheaper, but I hate Windows 8 and I am afraid that Microsoft has somehow altered the unit so that no other operating system can be installed. So, I am looking for the best Windows 7 unit I can find on ebay and hoping it doesn't block mint. Is t...

Re: mint 15 and nvidia drivers from live dvd to install

I am replying to my own question because I don't know how to do it any other way. I reformatted and installed Mint 15 Mate. Not a problem at all. I wonder if it has anything to do with the kernal? It is different from Mint 15 Cinnamon. Anyway my nvidia graphics work. I also have the option on Mate t...

support for pcmcia Tecra M9

Everythink seems to work using Mint 13 LTS, except for the pcmcia slot. The SD card slot under it works, but not pcmcia. I am wondering if mint is using the wrong driver. The system summary says: CardBus bridge Texas Instruments PCIxx12 /cardbus controller. The dmesg say:[ 2093.020152] PM: resume of...

Re: lspcmcia

Thanks. I have learned much while talking to you. I am writing it down in my little linux book. I bought the unit used last year and it is possible it was broken when I received it. I think I will just forget it is there, because it is not worth messing with Windows again. I mainly use my computer f...
