I've recently updated my Thunderbird and now can't find my address books. They are there because when composing emails when entering the recipients their address automatically appears. How can I reinstall my Address Books?
HP Envy 5030 Printer 'not printing'  problem solved.

I recently had a problem with my HP Envy 5030 All in One printer that wouldn't  print when "Ink is Low" notice was shown, after various unsuccessful attempts to print I contacted the Forum helpline.
I was advised to check if the computer was showing the 'ink levels and also advised to download the HPLIP app.
When I checked the ink levels on the computer they where not showing if they were empty or not. I have been using CartridgeSave compatible ink cartridges for sometime without any problems up till now. So I bought new a new set of CartridgeSave compatible ink cartridges and replaced the old ones and the printer still showed  the  "Ink is Low" notice. I was then advised the check if the "Ink Levels" where showing on the computer printer properties and found they were not showing the levels of the new full cartridges just fitted. At this time I noticed in the Status section of the printer properties that the Enabled box wasn't ticked so I ticked this and noticed that the Ink Levels showed Full. Then I set up to print a Test Page and the printer then printed a Test Page successfully.
After informing the Linux Forum advisor of the successful outcome we agreed that it wasn't necessary to download the HPLIP because it wasn't an easy one to use.

I'm using Linux Mint "Tricia" 19.3 Cinnamon 64 bit ISO and use usb sticks to store folders and files. Using the sticks recently after I have entered files into the folders and then removed the stick from the computer. Next time I use the stick I can open it but a number of the folders/files are "locked" in read only. What causes this and how can I unlock the folders/files. I have this problem on a number of my usb sticks both new and old re-used ones..

Linux Support / Scangearmp2 SOLVED.
December 18, 2020, 09:58:07 AM
Further to my recent request for help with installing the scangearmp2 for use with my Canon TR8550 printer. The problem was solved for me to be able to use scangearmp2 with Simple Scan, however now when I receive Software Updates included is one for scangearmp2. But now when I install the updates the scangearmp2 won't and I receive a notice as shown on the attachment. I have to quit the scangearmp2 update to enable the other updates to install. I've now received the scangearmp2 update several times and each time I quit it.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        My question is, should I uninstall the scangearmp2 and then, next time the scaneramp2 update appears reinstall. I'm reluctant to uninstall the present scangearmp2, which I did through the instructions given to me by Rich J, as this is working perfectly.
Linux Support / Canon Pixma Tr8550 printer. Solved
November 24, 2020, 05:08:18 PM
I am new to Linux Forum and using Linux Mint 19.3 Cinnamon and have just installed a Canon Pixma TR8550 printer. I have installed Scangearmp2 from Software Manager and launched it. However it doesn't appear in the Graphics list. I find I have to launch it by opening Software Manager then Graphics and type in scangearmp2 in the question block. This opens the install block and from there I launch the scangearmp2 successfully see attachment. Is there any simpler way to do this?
