Re: Need lexmark x2670 drivers for mint 13 64 bit

Thanks for the information. I think my best bet is buy a new printer that is known Linux compatible. Then share it with the win xp and win 7 boxs. The lexmark is a pain anyway. Cartridges do not last long and have to print alignment pages all the time. Which is a waste of ink. I will search for a kn...

Re: Hello from Texas!!

Wow those are great links. My son is playing Minecraft allot. he has his own bukkit server running on this mint server. That was one of the reasons I went to Mint 64bit.

Need lexmark x2670 drivers for mint 13 64 bit

My wifes laptop is win 7. With a lexmark all in one printer. Scanner and printer. My next big challenge is to share that printer between win 7 and Mint. If I put the printer on the win7 box I can see it via samba but can not find the lexmark x2670 driver. I am using mint 13 64bit. Is it possible to ...

Hello from Texas!!

Well after playing with dual boots of linux mandrake for years and a few others. I finally tried Mint11 32bit (64bit would not work with my printer) and really loved it. I even got my printer working! I also ended up going back to windows on my home computers due to some app or piece of hardware. I ...

Re: How to add the "ll" command

Thanks Guys, I finally got it working. After I learned it was an alias I was able to find more information on this. So I ended up making the file in pluma then save to home. I made a .bashrc file but could not copy or move it to home. I guess thats normal since its a hidden file. I have "show hidden...

Re: Software manager does not work most of the time - no err

The only problem I have with Software manager is that it's slow and doesn't refresh when it's installed or uninstalled a program. The progress bars reach 100%, but no mention of completion, no changes in logos etc. I have to close out of SM and reload for the changes to show. But nothing like you l...

Both sound like connection issues perhaps?
Not using WLAN for phone. That could be why phone is flaky also.

My PC is 6" from router. I can download fine with synaptic. Just software manager is flaky. Nice interface though. Just wish it worked.

Re: Software manager does not work most of the time - no err

Yes synaptic works fine. It show "status" of installs and works. I just used for skype since software manager can not install Skype for some reason. Be nice if there was an error or log or something. I am using Mate. Really like it, tried all other desktops. My kids (11 and 13) use this computer als...

Software manager does not work most of the time - no errors

Just did a clean upgrade to 13 (I was on 11). Using "Software manager" to install some more software. I have issues installing most choices. Some work but not on the first try. miniInstall 7.3.9. I have run update manager. For example I had to click install on opera and filezilla 5 times before they...
