Re: External Mouse Scroll Speed Adjustment

The title of this thread puzzles me a bit. In about 50 years of working in IT I have never found internal mice in PC's. In fact never found one in a main frame either,
but did see a few mouse visiting cards in an old IBM. They came in thru' the air conditioning seeking food and warmth. :happy:

Re: Brother Printer Wireless laser Printer HL2280DW

An answer to the last part of the question. My Brother Laser 2130 has an access setting where the approved users may be set, with all others denied access. I would expect
a later model to include this setting, but you could check the specifications to be sure.

Re: [SOLVED. sort of...] Can't set left handed mouse

Using MX 18.3 on a fairly old Asus MoBo. Mouse is a wired three button Microsoft Intelli-eye. It remains right-handed regardless of any settings in the Mouse & Touchpad menu. I'm left handed but can use mouse in either hand, have programmed by own left fingers to use an RH mouse. On the Dell 9010 co...

Re: Brother DCP-585CW Printer/Copier (Abandoned for now)

Am putting this printer back on the shelf. Have reloaded Brother's driver and checked everything that I can think of. The 585 says it is receiving data but goes no
further and eventually turns itself off. So, abandoned until i have more time to waste.

Re: Brother DCP-585CW Printer/Copier

Thanks Eadwine, yes it is enabled and have it successfully working off my old XP laptop but it will not print from MX.

Brother DCP-585CW Printer/Copier (Abandoned for now)

Has anyone had success - or the lack of it - with a Brother DCP-585 printer and MX. I have inherited a DCP-585 that had had very little use, but it refuses to work with MX. Have tried several drivers, the printer's display states that it is receiving data but nothing happens. The copy/print function...

Re: the nice editor (ne)

mmmmmm... I downloaded and installed (supposedly), but ne has disappeared into my system, no sign of it in the menu, will not run from
terminal and Catfish cannot find it. A re-install has made no difference, so will wait for a rainy day and try again
