Howdy!

Post by Zulu95 » Fri Jul 20, 2018 10:34 am

Greetings from the Show Me state. I started fooling with 'puters back in the 70's. Got back into them in time for DOS 3. Then followed Windows. built, sod and fixed them for a while. I first tried LINUX Mint about seven years ago. I was using a multi-processor, multi core (Dual AMD Athlon) motherboard but had all sorts of driver problems. Could not get any quick answers so back to Win7 I went. Returned for Mint 17. Liked it and have hardly used a Win powered machine since.
I have Mint 17.2, 18.1 and 19 now on three machines and the latter two are driving me crazy(A very short drive!) with printing problems. I also encountered the "ICEauthorization" problem on the Mint 19 machine after a kernel upgrade.
I am not a programmer just an old Hillbilly living in the Ozarks and really don't want to spend too much time fooling with software problems as it interferes with my shooting fun!

Welcome! Mint 17.x (especially .3) is rock solid. I too haven't sorted out the printer drivers for later versions; must do that before 17.3 goes EOL :oops:

Hopefully the good people here will be able to help you get your printer issues sorted without resorting to target practice. :mrgreen:

I had just set up 18.1 on a newly purchased LT and noticed the 19 release so loaded a dual boot on the 500Gb SSD. I was hoping 19 would have cured the printer problems not compounded them! The OS is just too good otherwise to give up on but I hope I do not need to buy yet another laser printer so I can print from all the machines.
Thank you to all for the welcomes.
