    Printers - again

    I have a confession to make: I don't understand drivers, why we need them, how they work and how they help me. That being said, any of you kind gurus out there who suggest I install drivers for certain things will quickly understand why my eyes glaze over, my brain stops functioning when I even...

    Solitaire Game PysolFC

    I've tried downloading this game from the Software Manager on Mint. When it's installed, instead of seeing the usual Launch and Remove buttons, the only button that appears is Remove. When I go to my list of installed apps, it's nowhere to be found, even though I supposedly just installed it...

    Slow going...

    If this needs to be posted elsewhere, please let me know. When I run a browser of any sort, I'm known to have multiple tabs open, usually up to 7 or 8. My syst4em starts slowing down as soon as I open the browser, then gets progressively slower as I open more tabs. Is this a processor...

    Searching Forums

    Hello again, to all my brainiac friends. I was looking through the Mint Forum for an answer to a question and realized I could be looking all night. I tried to find a Search box for this and found none. Can it really be true? Are there really no search boxes for the forums? All of you far...

    Just need some input

    I tend to get on the computer, work for awhile and then go off and do something else, leaving all my windows and tabs open . But I realized after being on the forum for awhile, that if I saw a particular person was onsite, I would expect them to answer me within 5 minutes or so. But then I...

    How secure is secure?

    Please see the screenshot below. I know Linux is super secure, but when Firefox gives me this message, can I just go ahead or not? (Ultimately I will because this is a state government website, but I'm curious for future reference.
