Re: hplip for HP LaserJet Pro MFP m227fdw

This thing is solved. Before downloading from HP or compiling something myself (eek :shock: ) I would try the buster packages first. That was the ticket! Worked a real treat once I got all the ducks in a row. Ended up grabbing the following from Buster: hplip_3.17.6+repack0-2_amd64.deb hplip-data_3....

Re: hplip for HP LaserJet Pro MFP m227fdw

I seem to remember installing python2 and python3 caused some sort of issue. Or, is just that one must specify in the python script which version to host the script? It's all a bit of blur right now.

Re: Trim cronjobs versus discard on SSDs

A bit off-topic: I purchased an Acer W500 for just such circumstances - wanting to be on a Linux box while on the road (traveling on vacation, I drive a desk for my 9-5). This thing is a couple of years old, has only 32GB SSD, but it has an i3 (I think, maybe i5) and seems to do quite well. Won't pr...

I've not been able to run fstrim except with elevated privs. Attempting to run from non-priv position, the command is not found.

So, did I get that right - srq2625-Scott and you are the same person? Yep - I'm going to ask that the srq2625 account be turned off.

Re: Solydxk installation on ssd

Many thanks Scott. Some success with this command. However, the operation seems to be limited to /boot. Perhaps on the fresh install there is simply nothing to trim. However, I did try it on another well used system, and similarly, only /boot received the operation. Can you suggest any reasons why?...

Re: Solydxk installation on ssd

Might want to also run the command

Code: Select all

hdparm -I /dev/sdX
where "X" is the letter for the drive in question and then look through the results for the hard drive parameters for either a "discard" parameter or a line that reads "Data Set Management TRIM supported."

Re: No Updates?

Hi Scott. Thanks for your reply. That's kind of the point I'm making. The first thing I do after an install is apt-get update & apt-get upgrade. However there is nothing to update, which I find strange. Strange? That's just Schoelje making "Linux Easy". I doesn't hurt that you do the apt-get update...

Re: No Updates?

Part of the install process is to, in essence, run

Code: Select all

apt-get update
apt-get upgrade
So your fresh install is, normally, up to date and ready to rock-n-roll!

Re: Problems after UP

Research seems to indicate that the following will (maybe?) solve the problem: sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get dist-upgrade If that cleans it up then you can sudo apt-get install clementine if not then continue with sudo dpkg --configure -a and try the clementine install. If it works, golden. Else,...

Re: link to version list?

You don't get it neither. Anyone who is creating a distro and making it available for public consumption can trivially create the list via 'dpkg --list'. If they want to make it easy for people to adopt their distro then this is a nice convenience that doesn't require much time nor effort. Rational...

If you have concerns about updating a machine, there a a couple of things you can do to migitage risk: Read the instructions/notes prior to doing anything.

@kurotsugi - He did uninstall the 3.16 kernel, then he re-installed it and has successfully booted into it so he should be golden on that count.
