    Printer Problems

    That appears so, Mark :) - I checked in Ubuntu 19.10 'Eoan Ermine' and it is from the Universal category, same version. By way of explanation, I run typically 80 - 100 Linux over 2 rigs, currently only 71 while I am reorganising drives. Looks fine to my casual inspection. Wizard BTW @70...

    Audio Problem

    Nope and Nope - I can't explain it and you are doing everything right :) I can, however, suggest a workaround, as follows sudo apt install --reinstall libdvd-pkg # that's a double dash before reinstall If that goes through without error or comment, reboot the computer and then try to run the...

    Printer Problems

    On @MarkG_108 's offerings (Have I said welcome yet, Mark? If not, welcome to linux.org :)): CUPS is always worth a look, some can find the navigation tricky. I spent a lot of time researching this mtink, and in the end, I do not know that it is the best solution. All the articles are 8 - 9...

    Printer Problems

    On Vrai's contribution above - Sue is on Linux Mint 19.2 'Tina' Cinnamon - very similar to what Vrai suggested, just under Profile Preferences. Sue, see if the below helps, just uncheck Use the system fixed width font and choose from there, I find Monospace Regular 14 is good for me.

    Audio Problem

    Nothing that won't wait. I've corrected myself above, and we'll call that screen you provided a "screenshot screen", where you can take a number of actions. When we are doing the Restore, there will be a summary screen. 1. Open your screenshot screen and click Settings. 2. Choose Filters...

    G'day @SuzyQ72 and welcome from another Aussie :) Are you studying to become a Kali Linux Certified Professional or engaging in a Korean Language & Culture Program (only half kidding)? I suspect the former. We have a new Kali Section here https://linux.org/forums/kali-linux.162/ ...

    Malformed Entry in Wine Repository Installation

    G'day @datajj and welcome to linux.org from another Aussie :) In case you are having difficulty in distinguishing the difference between the guide you were following and the guide Brian has provided above - The one you were (quite reasonably) following is deficient in one vital area. When you...

    Unable to boot

    Yeah thanks Brian o_O G'day Without a Clean Slate? and welcome to linux.org :) 1. Have you been into the UEFI side of your BIOS previously? Have you set a password there? 2. How did you delete Windows 10, and do you have a way of restoring that (USB stick or disk)? 3. What medium are you...

    Timeshift & Similar Solutions - Safeguard & Recover Your Linux

    Just a BTW Rob - Timeshift acts as Root in its operations so assign root permissions to all files in screenshots, if copying back, just adjust for that. It reassigns permissions appropriate with a proper Restore. Cheers.

    The best linux Distro for a Intel Celeron n3050?

    Not so, folks. (Wizard appears in a puff of smoke, bearing 2 stone tablets - one with good news, the other with bad news. Drops one of the tablets - oh well, can't read them anyway, they are in Hebrew) Jerry Bezencon, maker of Linux Lite, has long had a hate relationship with UEFI and...

    Audio Problem

    OK, you're losing me a little here, friend. o_O 1. How so? Your summary screen shows what appear to be successful snapshots stored on /dev/sda6 which is a good, large partition. We can work with that. 2. Chose it for what? That screenshot of 14 September was taken on demand (tag O) which...

    Audio Problem

    Have you actually run the Restore process, Dick? From Sylvia? If you had, you would have been taken to a full screen like a full-page Terminal screen, grey or black, with white text output spooling down the screen for a minute or two. Once that finished, the computer would have automatically...

    See #16 again, Sue sudo usermod -a -G lp susan You failed to include sudo, hence permission was denied. Yep, an easy mistake. Because we are part of the adm (admin) group, and part of the sudo group, unfortunately does not mean that we can use certain commands without prefacing them with...

    Timeshift & Similar Solutions - Safeguard & Recover Your Linux

    Excellent, Sue - as that is one screen which is mega-important :) I'll explain a little now, and more soon. As part of the process you'll follow, you will change the choice on that screen to check the two buttons on the right, where currently the two on the left are checked. This will enable...
