The maker of the video had to dig around online to find out why his father's HP printer wouldn't work when he used prin...

Re: Father's on MX Linux after hard drive crash. hp-setup

I appreciate this, but it isn't obvious.

If you have a look at the video you'll see that a simple solution is proposed. It would be really useful for newbies.

Re: New Adobe Flash Zero-Day Exploit Found Hidden Inside MS Office Docs

I'm curious how you found this problem so quickly.

I'm a news hog and I posted the problem as soon as I found it, but you beat me to it.

You folks are F1 when it comes to sorting problems.
