Fresh install

Hi I've been a user and supporter of Solydxk for more years than i can remember and my system is now returning some errors because I've probably installed some software at some time. How do I go about doing a fresh install to get back to the best state. I've some experience but not much.

Re: Brother HL 1212W printer install

Thank you.
I've gone through that process and the printer is visible as connected by USB but is not in the list of printers in the rh window. I've tried a few combinations but unsure what to do now?

Re: LibrePlan

NOTE, it is not always a good idea to install packages which are not found in the repositories as they will not get updated or get security updates as other program will which were installed from the SolydXK repositories but if you are willing to live with the risk then that is up to you. Thank you...

Re: Update manager

paulbarton: Well, the good news is that your repos look fine. :-) Unfortunately, as you have installed 54 backported packages, I would not even attempt to downgrade these back to the standard Debian Stable packages as the possibility of breakage would be too great IMHO. However, others may take a d...
