Re: Live Session on Mac

I just booted 2 DVD's and 1 USB stick of mint cinnamon 18 64bit on my Dell Inspiron laptop that were created using K3b. Until recently I always did that from the command line. I run mint cinnamon on that laptop. So, I do not think K3b is the problem unless the programs you mentioned add something sp...

Re: Live Session on Mac

Can't be a 2013 because 2012 was the last year that Macbooks had dvd drives. I stand corrected, it is a 2007. Don't know where I got 2013 from. Maybe from the person that gave it to me. Anyway, as Fabien said, download the ISO from the official Mint page and use something like Unetbootin to burn it...

Mint came up slowly. I began to wonder if it would open to live session or directly to install so I turned ...

Re: Live Session on Mac

Hum, looks like the machine doesnt recognise your DVD as bootable. Maybe you will get better luck with a USB. Burn the live USB with Rufus (from windows), or mintstick (from Linux Mint, it's already installed by default), or unetbootin (from OSX). Error mounting USB stick. dmesg | tail [233842.4425...

The latest version of hplip is already installed. I tried connecting the printer to my laptop using Ethernet cable. The laptop does not see it but does see my HP Lazerjet 1100 if I connect with a USB X printer port cable. I have never connected a printer to my router before. Maybe I should connect t...
