Hi, Henri,

​Ken, instructions for upgrading Linux Mint 17.3 to Linux Mint 18 - if
that's what you're after - are found here : They worked very well
for me....

For the time being, I'm going to stay with 17.3 until I understand it
better.  But I created a LiveCD for 18, and may install it on an old laptop
I have here in the future.

For the moment, I'm just trying to solve this issue of printing from LO
Calc on my Samsung laser.

Hullo Ken !

There's a lot of wisdom in the old aphorism to the effect that if it ain't
broke, don't fix it​, and Mint 17.3 works very well - even if I myself find
Mint 18 just a little bit better.

I scrounged an old 2005 Dell Inspiron and installed 18 with the XFCE desktop today. I like that interface if I'm the one using it. But for beginners, I still think the Cinnamon desktop might be easier to grasp for newbies to computers.

In any event, someone on the Linux Mint
Forum for printers and scanners ( might be able to suggest
solutions for the specific problems you're having printing from LO Calc on
your Samsung laser printer - perhaps worth a try ?...

Well, 5.1.5 didn't solve the problem. But I almost never use a spreadsheet, so I'm not going to worry about it for now.

With regard to easily keeping your installation of LO updated on Mint, you
might want to consider installing the PPA ( I can confirm that
it works like a charm, and you don't have to download and install the .deb
files yourself !...
