if it don't get resolved tonight, I am formatting the hard drive and reinstalling Win7 Home Premium, and refusing to allow it to update anything....

I have SP3 stored on a backup hard drive somewhere, that is good enough.

going to run it plain vanilla right out of the box, just like I have been with the Desktop

well, part of the problem might be the Internet is down...

I am on AT&T ADSL and the whole damn county is out of service tonihgt.

I had to fire up my cellphone's hotspot on Verizon to access the Internet.....
on Facebook, our local community group is asking what is going on??
are other folks down too??

and one guy says that he was told the entire area it OUT OF SERVICE.

we have been having intermittent Internet service for several weeks now.
I am wondering at this point, if the downloads that I have been getting and trying to use, have been bugged with Bit Errors??

dunno, but I am calling it quits for tonight and gonna read a book.

well,
I got a good night's sleep,

the internet is back up and solid,

I visited the Linux forum again to see what has been done with my problem

and ran across another future project that got resolved before I asked for it,
In Windows, there is a super slick, simple image editor called Paint....
nothing is better than that app for quick and dirty projects, cropping, writing over, air brushing...

this thread
https://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtop...?f=90&t=258821
brought up "Pinta" as a look alike, and boy is it ever. It is now my default Linux Paint app editor.


but, back to this laptop, it is doing better, it now has a printer attached,
see my thread on that.
https://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtop...?f=90&t=258867

It works good now, Libre Writer sees the ET-2550 as the only printer available which is fine, it is color and multi-function, the other printers are black only.

now, I need to fix the Sharing problem, I can't get Linux to share folders, and on 17.3 it was very easy, on 18.3 it says I don't have permission because I am not the owner ??

back to the Linux forum again.

When I was in school, they kept the curtains closed so we couldn't use the windows at all!

Is it hard?
Not if you have the right attitudes. Its having the right attitudes that's hard.

I'm thinking that you restored somethings from a backup as root.
Try
Code:
sudo chown -R john:john /home/john

um, Win10 ain't gonna live here, unless everything else is broke.

if it comes to it, I will just use my MS Win7 DVD to start from scratch, and leave it on Win7 forever.

I don't like Win10, my friend has a surf with that on it, and I just plain don't like it at all.

I gave up on Linux, still have XP and 7. I'm not sure what became of the Windows10 computer that my friends have. I have a smartazz phone and trying to view forums on that is't fun, I have to take my glasses off to see the screen.
