Go to

Menu > Settings > Printers

right-click on your printer .. select "Delete"



When entering your password into the terminal nothing will be echoed to screen (not even ******), but your password **IS** going in, so just type your password then hit enter.

Try deleting the printer in "Printers".

Then installing hplip-gui
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install hplip-gui
then look for "HPLIP Toolbox" in your menu, and add your printer using that.

You're most welcome :)

youtube-dl is a command line application only, not a graphical (GUI) application .. so won't show up in the menu.

But...

There is a GUI front end for youtube-dl called youtube-dlg

To install it in Mint 19, open a terminal and run these commands in sequence
Code: [Select]
cd ~
then
Code: [Select]
wget https://launchpad.net/~nilarimogard/+archive/ubuntu/webupd8/+files/youtube-dlg_0.4-1~webupd8~bionic9_all.deb
then
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install ~/youtube-dlg_0.4-1~webupd8~bionic9_all.deb
enter your password when prompted .. and (if prompted) accept any other changes it needs to make by entering Y

Once installed you'll find it in the menu at:-

Menu > Internet > Youtube DL GUI

General Help & Advice / Re: Booting Linux Mint 19.1 XFCE slow

Okay can you again run:
Code: [Select]
dmesg > ~/Desktop/dmesg.txt
you'll then find a file called dmesg.txt on your desktop.

Can you host that file somewhere like
http://www.tinyupload.com/
and post a link to it

well dmesg is suggesting the filesystem of dm-0 may be corrupt .. what it probably means is it wasn't unmounted properly at some point.

Boot into Windows .. mount the encrypted volume .. run a windows disk check .. unmount the encrypted volume .. shutdown, and boot into Mint.

did it boot faster this time ?

I'm not seeing 2-3 minutes, dmesg suggests you're fully booted around the 43 second mark.

What is making you say 2-3 minutes ?

Okay I'm not **necessarily** seeing much untoward there, can you post the output from
Code: [Select]
inxi -Fz
then run:
Code: [Select]
dmesg > ~/Desktop/dmesg.txt
you'll then see a file on your desktop called "dmesg.txt" .. can you host that file somewhere like
http://www.tinyupload.com/
and post a link to it here.

General Help & Advice / Re: Boot Repair Disks
« on: February 12, 2019, 11:19:33 pm »
I'm not sure why you'd need a boot repair disk ?

The Mint LiveUSB/LiveDVD media you'll be using can be used to fix the GRUB bootloader if necessary (though it's unlikely you're going to need to.

General Discussion / Re: Installing Adobe reader on Linux mint 19.1
« on: February 09, 2019, 10:51:24 pm »
Mint should already have either evince or xreader pre-installed for reading pdf files.

But if you MUST have the "Adobe" reader, hit Ctrl+Alt+T to open a terminal, then run the following commands in sequence:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install libxml2:i386 gdebi-core
(enter your password when prompted, then hit enter)

then:
Code: [Select]
wget ftp://ftp.adobe.com/pub/adobe/reader/unix/9.x/9.5.5/enu/AdbeRdr9.5.5-1_i386linux_enu.deb
then:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install ./AdbeRdr9.5.5-1_i386linux_enu.deb
you should now find it in the main menu at:-

Menu > Office > Adobe Reader 9

Note:- Please remember Linux commands ARE case sensitive, so be sure to enter the commands EXACTLY as above :)

If for some reason it doesn't start from the menu the first time, open a terminal and run
Code: [Select]
acroread
when it starts, close it and try from the menu again.
