hi, Mark

Will try to look up the first two questions in the next couple of days as I'm not around much until Saturday,

Cheers.

General Discussion / Resolving Host - failure to access internet
« on: June 30, 2015, 07:38:30 am »
Hi, guys

For a while now when trying to access the internet I get a message saying "resolving host" and then finally it falls over.

The error messages vary from DNS server to internet connections but in reality when using my other laptop running W7 and Firefox i never have any
problems.

Anyone got any ideas as to a solution.

Regards.

hi, Mark

Once again my thanks for your advice and time printer now connected and has printed a test page OK.  :)

Regards, Doug.

Hi, arochester

Thanks for responding.
 
The printer is a Kodak ESP C310. I've looked around to see if I can find drivers but to no avail so far and was wondering if anyone knew of generic drivers that might work.

Just typical that Kodak printers are a problem I was going to move completely to Linux (Peppermint 6) but my other half is self employed and needs to print
lots of stuff so she uses W7. Looks like that will have to continue for now at least.

However, any advice gratefully accepted including which printer brands work well with Linux.

Regards.

Printers and Scanners / Printing from Peppermint 6 on Kodak printer
« on: June 19, 2015, 09:37:12 pm »
Hi, guys

Can someone explain how I get P6 to "see" my Kodak printer as I need to print a spreadsheet out from Libre Office?

When I try to print it just shows generic printer which doesn't actually do anything.

I know i ask a lot of questions on the Forum so apologies for yet another!!!

Regards, All

Hi, Mark

I think the "well done" comment should be addressed to you not me as without your knowledge, effort and patience I wouldn't have done any of this.

Good to know it's as you expected, however.

Many thanks.

Doug.

Hi, Mark

Well it went like dream thanks to your excellent instructions it seems that once again I am indebted to you for your help, time and advice.

Really looking forward to using P6.

Once again thank you not only for helping me with this issue but for all your work on P6 as well.

Regards, Doug.



26
hi, Mark

Rather more complicated than I expected but your instructions are superb so bar me making a cock of it I just need to make sure I follow them to the letter.

Will have a go later tonight and let you know how I get on - fortunately I do have another laptop otherwise not sure how I could have carried this out.

Many thanks for your time.

Regard,

Doug.

Hi, Mark

Nothing to back up doc or photo/video wise how do I format the two SSD's, please last time I presumably did it during the installation process of putting P5 on?

Doug.

Hi, Mark

I trust you completely and as for understanding what you posted it may as well have been in Chinese characters!!!!  ;D

But if you are happy to spend your time and effort on my behalf I'm just very grateful and may even learn something - or maybe not.

Regards, Doug

Hi. guys

a while ago Mark kindly offered to talk me through installing P6 on my Asus eeepc which has two HDD one very small one on which I installed P5 although not realising that I had two drives nor that I had installed it on the smaller one of the two.

There is another thread from a while back which Mark asked me to refer to whilst starting a new one which I have now done.

Have got P6 on a pendrive and it seems to be working OK.

Thanks.
