    Trouble installing Epson xp-4100 printer

    I thought it was installed. I can see it and the queue and I can see it in LibreOffice. But, when I try printing to it, the queue says it's not connected. Properties shows Local Raw Printer. That didn't seem right. But, when I try to change that, it looks for a driver. I find the xp-4100, but I...

    Xfburn "cannot reserve track of 117866496 bytes"

    The 117866496 bytes is the entire contents of the ISO file - on one track of the original DVD, I guess. Xfburn has a problem with that. I don't know how to make Xfburn work nor what alternatives I have - if any. I'm trying to back up an old game and ... I just realized that the game was on a CD...

    This appears to be the entire contents of the ISO file. Can I use Xfburn or is there another app that might work?

    How to uninstall a program that does not show up on the menu?

    I thought to go to the package manager, where I installed it from, and I removed it completely. Thanks for being there if I need you.

    How to uninstall a program that does not show up on the menu?

    The installation didn't add Scribus to the menu. It turns out it's not going to work for me, so I want to uninstall it. A terminal command maybe?

    Queue shows "Processing" forever

    Been printing fine until I successfully used PlayOnLinux to get a greeting card program to work - except it wouldn't print. Now, native Linux Libre Writer doesn't print. ????

    Audacity installation not going well

    Audacity is not anyplace the menu. I found a file called "Audacity" in the bin folder and Audacity started up. So, I created a folder and copied that file to it so that I can find it later.

    Audacity installation not going well

    I think I did something wrong. I expected Audscity to install itself from the Linux Lite Package Manager. I found it there and selected everything you see here, but it did not install and I see nothing in my Download folder. I don't know where stuff went that appeared to download and I think I...

    "PrinterShare Mobile Print" Android app.

    Is this something I could use to print photos from android to my Linux USB-connected printer? The computer is on my network, the printer is not wireless. Or any other suggestions? Thx.

    Can't get started

    That was simple. The words "New Thread" someplace on the screen would be even simpler. On my phone (my primary internet access) it's the name of the current thread at the top left. Thx.

    Well, I finally got Skychart up and running. Now I'm having trouble getting the object pictures downloaded and installed. Here's what I did: I went to "www.ap-i.net/skychart/doku.php?id=en/download" and under PICTURES I found "Linux Deb" to click on. The complete file would not download. I...

    I found libpasastro_1.4.0-48_amd64.deb and installed it. On installation, the skychart .deb file needs to download more files. I have limited data so I aborted the install. I may have time tomorrow to go to the library and finish the install. I'll let you know.

    I think I have the correct libpasastro. Does it contain two folders - lib and share? I tried the installation again, but it still days libpasastro is not installed. How do I do that?

    Okay. After moving both skychart_4.2.1-4073_amd64.deb and skychart-4.2.1-4073-src to Downloads, Open with GDebi Package Installer shows that libpasastro is not installed. I had gone to where libpasastro was located. Clicking on libpasastro downloaded skychart-4.2.1-4073-src.tar.xz from which I...

    Okay. I now have a folder called "Carte du Ciel" in a folder called "Programs". In it are a folder called "Skychart-4.2.1-4073-src" and a file called "Skychart-4.2.1-4073_amd64". If I double click the ...amd64 file, I get a package installer window which is all blank. If I should do something...
