Re: Brother HL-L2350DW Printer - How to Setup?

Thanks, fehlix, for the excellent explanation and advice. I'll give the printer a stable and unique IP address. I gave our two desktop computers stable IP addresses years ago. I don't recall what I did with the half a dozen other home devices (cell phones, pads, laptops, etc). Probably nothing. Ok,...

Re: not printing in MX 18.1 does print in 16.1

I have a laser printer, Brother HL-L2320D, attached via USB to my computer desktop. I can print from MX 16.1, but not from 18.1 on the same machine. Print Test Page does nothing in Printer Properties from MX 18.1 but will print in 16.1. I tried using the LP command from terminal and it will not pri...

Re: Live MX-18 image on USB fails to boot on iMac

I just joined the forum to say that I'm experiencing the same problem on a brand new Dell Inspiron 15-3567 laptop with 64-bit UEFI. I have been using the same usb stick to boot into MX-18.2 on my desktop system with no problems, and the usb stick has correct checksums. The environment variables are...

Re: Black screen with blinking cursor when installed on Hyper-V

Is there a chance to modify the ISO myself so it boots or I should rather wait for you guys doing it? Also, let me know if you want a test rat. I am happy to assist. We might have it shortly within the next 18.3RC, so it would probably easiest to test the RC iso, when it is available in the next co...

Re: Brother HL-L2350DW Printer - How to Setup?

Problem 1 - connecting the printer to wifi router. I was finally able to get the printer to connect to the wireless router by going into the Setup Wizard on the printer and pressing the WPS key on the wireless router. Question 1: I don't know if that was a good idea or not, since it bypasses the wi...

Re: Midnight Commander no VFS and partial Open support

Thanks - removing all traces of mc (apt-get --purge) and then deleting /etc/mc aswell as my own config files, made it work. Yay! ... Now I just have to manually reinsert the parts I want from before. :) Alternativly also add another "fresh" user, and check it's working for the other user. As you mi...

Re: Midnight Commander no VFS and partial Open support

I just installed MX 18, and copied over my config files from my Ubuntu 18.10 installation. Now, before anyone says that's a bad habit, I also tried removing my ~/.mc/ and ~/.config/mc/ directories before trying the following: VFS doesn't work as it used to. I can't click Enter on a zip-file and wan...

Re: Black screen with blinking cursor when installed on Hyper-V

I am facing the same issue. Have you tried the test iso provided in that thread. https://us-bz3.devzing.com/mx_antix/show_bug.cgi?id=68#c22 Hi Felix, I've just tried it and it worked. I was able to boot to the command line (terminal) and login as a root. Would this indicate what is wrong (=needs to...

Re: MX-18 boote nicht an ASUS - "Sie müssen zuerst einen Kernel laden"

Wenn du aber gemeint hast, den Grub von BL auf der externen Platte mit dem von MX zu überschreiben, dann ist das schon noch eine Option. So war das gedacht, statt Bunse-GRUB den MX-GRUB vom MBR starten , kannst das ja wieder zurückdrehen, da Du ja vom MX Grub Menu auch wieder nach Bunsen wechslen k...

Re: MX-18 boote nicht an ASUS - "Sie müssen zuerst einen Kernel laden"

Aber, entweder habe ich es vorher nicht als relevant wahrgenommen, oder "no suche device: ..." ist neu hinzugekommen. Könnte am USB liegen, evtl. zuwenig Power in der Dose. Bunsen booted weil es vom BIOS grub gleich auf der richtigen Partition landet. Wenn GRUB die Partionen nochmal sucht, bekommt ...
