Re: OpenVPN client issue

To find a ppd file you can use OpenPrinting
Oddly, OpenPrinting has drivers for MFC-J460DW and MFC-K480DW but not MFC-J470DW, nor is there guidance I can find as to which of these other two might work.

Re: OpenVPN and Mullvad

Hi there, I hope I get this right but correct me if I am wrong. If Mullvad is using the OpenVPN protocol why don't you just use network manager to set up the VPN as it would provide you a GUI to work with? (If you don't know how I would be happy to write a mini tutorial.) I've tried a few times, wi...

Re: How to installing printer in solus

Exact;ly. HPLIP helps install an HP printer. Not a Brother printer.

Re: Network Printer Brother MFC-J470DW

I went to Settings>Printers> Unlock>Add. Dammit if the printer wasn't already added, with the correct IP address. And it still doesn't work. It does state that the driver isn't located, and asks for me to either search the CUPS chart (which it is not included in) or install a PPD file (don't know th...

Get Libre Gone

I am not using, and do not want to use, LibreOffice. But the Updates report that it is waiting to be updated (even though, to my knowledge, not a single element of it is installed). The update status is not going away. I cannot find how to tell Software Center to ignore these packages. Help, please?

Re: OpenVPN and Mullvad

With help from Mullvad tech support, I got the config file edited. So now, it SHOULD connect correctly. But there is no notification that it is running, that it is running correctly... no settings box. The only way to be sure it is running is to try to run it again. Unless I'm supposed to know how t...

Re: Network Printer Brother MFC-J470DW

OK, so now I don't know what to do next. My printer is still not installed, and I've done everything I know to do. The command you gave appeared to accomplish nothing, I think it was just showing me how gzip works or something.
