This is from the driver manager.  The window itself is not fully active only the icons on the right side of the toolbar actually work, the ones on the left are hidden but do not work.  I have tried to capture the whole process but I do not know.

Once the first page finishes loading the origional window disappears and I can no longer find other drivers.

From the amount of time it takes to update the driver cache there should be many more.

 

I am not going to include the canon drivers this time.

Hi dannyboy950,

Please clarify the following:

Ref:

What exactly do you mean by "first page" and "original window"?

Is this the first page, or the original window?

Is that what disappears?

I am afraid I posted them out of sequence. The middle link should be first the last link should be seconds. The image you posted is actually the last final window that stays.  The other 2 disappear once the final window finishes loading.

 

They are not behind the image I have moved it over to check. They are just gone.

 

I do appologise very confuseing I admit.

No problem, and thanks for the clarification.

Have you tried selecting the driver at the top of the list that says "(recommended)," then clicking on the "Apply Changes" button?

That is how it should be.

 

I second AI's suggestion. Click on the recommended driver, and apply, if you haven't done so already. See if it solves your problems.

One thing to note is that the computer might take some time to apply changes when you click the "Apply Changes" button, but it's just a matter of waiting for it to finish.

That is the rub the only thing actualy functional that you see are the 3 icons at the top right.  None of the radio buttons actually work, none of the links [details] work.

 

The image/picture you are seeing is not functional, it is just a picture however even the real page/app whatever you want to call it does not work either except to resise the page or close it out.

There is a hidden drop down menu at the left of the tool bar but it does not do anything either. There is also a hidden progress bar at the bottom left.

These close out the moment I try to take a screen shot. The moment I touch the button [take screen shot].

 

What you are viewing is a pre-installed 3rd pary package called driver manager from a company called Nooob [I have no idea]

It is removable and re-installable, seems to use terminal commands and sudo, which I barely know anything about.

 

I have more to post but I need a break.

Before I forget thank you raw/moderator for closeing my other thread. It needed it many of my posts have gotten out of hand.

When you return, please post a screenshot of Linux Mint Driver Manager.

You already have the screen shot of driver manager.  That is the driver manager from the menu packages. There is no other listed. There is a synaptic driver manager and a debian but that is it on my PC.  If there is supposed to be more I do not have them.

So what were you saying is a "pre-installed 3rd pary package called driver manager from a company called Nooob"?

Because they are the people who actually developed the linux driver manager, I am trying to post the link to their website, but something or someone is not letting me.

 

http://www.noobslab.com/2014/01/linux-mint-driver-manager-and-device.html

 

Got it I think.

Hi dannyboy - no you are unnecessarily confusing yourself, you do not have the noobslab product, I found that site a few mintues before your last Post, I suspect you had performed a search such as "linux mint driver manager"

 

Back in a moment with more

That link says that Driver Manager is developed "by the Linux Mint team."
 
In any case, whoever developed Driver Manager is irrelevant to the problem you are having.
 
So, our advice is to click on the "recommended" driver, but you say that you cannot do so:

The image/picture you are seeing is not functional, it is just a picture however even the real page/app whatever you want to call it does not work either except to resise the page or close it out.


If Driver Manager isn't working, in that it won't allow you to select drivers that it lists, then I recommend reinstalling Mint.

@Al1000:

 

 

then I recommend reinstalling Mint.

 

Not necessarily so, I have a simpler solution for him to try, see below

I'm going to place these screenshots in separate posts, so that it is easier for you dannyboy, to digest, check and try.

 

If it hinders rather than helps, I won't do it again.

Check your Synaptic Package Manager under "driver manager" - if yours is the same as mine, then you have the "regular" driver manager installed.

 

Note with that article, the Noobslab badge was present, it is not present with yours because it has not been installed.
