Re: I'm trying to load printer software from CD-Rom.

If so Go to system settings / hardware / printers. Select add printer, Select network printer. If you printer doesn't show up select find netwo...

Re: Which Wine to use ?

In the software Manager is wine 1.6.2. I think that would be easiest. It is also tested with Mint 17 (Is that right ?). Since you have not installed anything before I will add a bit. Software manager can be accessed from your menu, it should be the second icon on your top left of the menu. Use the s...

Is there a list of scheduled software updates planned?

This is not the same as why I don't have the latest release of this or that software product. If I want to wait for the normal update of a product is it in some planning cycle somewhere that I could see? I am currently experiencing a bug in the GRAMPS genealogy software program that is fixed in GTK ...

Re: Keyboard & Mouse buttons lock randomly

Another piece of info. Problem never happens when the PC is left unattended. I only notice the problem when I am working with it and have my hand on the mouse. I am not sure if the problem starts with my clicking a mouse button or that is when I notice it is locked.

I have been through the whole process up to the final click of the mouse as it appears easy to upgrade with ASUS EZ Flash 2 Utility. However none of the updates address my proble...

Re: Nemo - can't resize column width in list view

I am having the same problem since going from Linux Mint 14 to 16, Nemo 1.1.2 to 2.0.8. Example, if displaying four columns, will not allow widening the first column if that would move the 4th column off the screen. That was not previously a restriction. Now I have to make the Nemo screen wider. Tha...

Now the Synaptic Package Manager will not start either. The Software Manager does start. I can install updates with sudo apt-get update so I am not dead in the water.
