Re: Mint 9 LTS

@bluemint33,

Probably a good time to shop for a new computer.
Install the latest LinuxMint LTS for the next 5 years and more.
And keep the old one running Mint 9 LTS as long as it lasts.

regards.

Re: No way to make HP LaserJet 1020 (usb) working

yeah! I also think LM13 (mate) is great... if only the printer could go Pietro Rebooted into Linuxmint13-Cinnamon this morning, ...and the HP1020 Laserjet prints as expected. Beginning to think it is a problem with my USB connections or interfaces. Someone suggested to me that the first thing to ch...

Re: No double-sided (manual duplex) printing with HPLIP??

Just a note on a workaround: Print a LibreOffice document to PDF, then print as follows: * First, print the Reverse=Even Pages/ with Reverse ON; * take the stack of printed pages and reinsert them correctly, * and then, print Anverse=Odd Pages/ with Reverse OFF Works fairly well for up to about 50 p...

Re: No way to make HP LaserJet 1020 (usb) working

@pico77, I also have a semi-compatible HP1020. A great printer when it configures. It is about seven years old and has worked fine with older LMs. Installed LM-13-cinnamon and it worked out of the box. I was so relieved. Then I turned off the printer and computer. Upon restarting, no printer. Instal...

Re: I AM EXTREMELY TICKED

I did that at least once. Understand the pain. Probably many others did too, if they will admit it. :) Now, I always defrag the windows partition, then reboot with LM10 LiveCD, (or your choice) Use the included gparted to shrink the sda1 windows partition to ca.40GiB or whatever seems correct for yo...

Re: Configuring Bootloader . . .

Seems to be a problem just with unetbootin building the boot USB. I burnt the DVD and installed without problem on a cheap P4 which is incapable of booting from a USB, though it builds them admirably well. I have tried several different things until I saw a mention in another thread, [ http://forums...

Re: Horizontal Conky messing up background

when I set
${font Helvetica:size=7}
in front of the line in the first post with my conky setup above,
I could see everything with no flickering nor movement.
Graphs as expected. But I don't use Compiz.

There is "pad percents n" (n = 0 means no padding)
Looking for one for the graphs.

Re: Lost printer

In a terminal, execute the following:
sudo /usr/lib/openoffice/program/spadmin

Configure your printer and see if it starts.
Agree that it should be easier and someday it will be.

Re: Upgrading to mint 10 from 6

The Aged One's first option is really a good one. Check magazines for a CD with LM10 Julia with Gnome. Begin downloading at night via a torrent or regular download. Torrents are good because they are restartable. As well as are some download managers. Wget in a terminal is good for the same reason. ...

Re: SAINTS - Will they make the Super Bowl again?

I saw the game last year, in Costa Rica, with my brother, sister (a real Saints fan), kids and other family members. We all grew up in central and south Louisiana. Saints fans ever since. It was a real thrill and surprise for all of us to watch the Saints win their first Super Bowl. I didn't see the...

@kidflash,

The DVD contains more apps and extras that wouldn't fit on the CD.
You can get them with the "Software Manager" from the menu.
