Don’t spend hours on download, configuration, and Windows optimization in order to use CROSS Library on a Windows system!  With this system, all of this is done before you even open the box!  You also no longer need to waste time waiting for Windows Updates to finish!  (Unlike Windows, in Linux Mint you NEVER need to wait to start or shutdown for updates to be applied.)  It just works!

These systems ALL have the following for your convenience:
-In a day of rising prices, this is a VERY economical laptop upgrade reducing impact on your budget as you replace older XP, Vista, Windows 7 systems!
-Linux Mint 19.2 or later and CROSS Library pre-installed, updated, and optimized to provide the best experience!
-No Windows Updates worries!
Word processing and Spreadsheet software installed
-Secure settings configured via Firewall and Antivirus configuration
-Your CROSS Library database(s) downloaded from your latest cloud backup  (We also work our customers to ensure we get your latest data from any previous system you may be using.  You will need to verify that your latest data is present as you begin working.)

Printer Details

Many printer drivers are pre-installed.  We will assist in installing and configuring a workable printer driver for your printer.  When you receive your system, call us, and we will help you finish up the printer and verify that everything is in-order!  That way, we can work with you to verify a couple of test prints to ensure that everything is working properly in your environment.  We also take this time to document any special configuration on your account notes to help us assist you on future support calls.


We can install printer drivers in Linux Mint EVEN WHERE COMPATIBILITY IS NOT DECLARED by the vendor.  We install the drivers for your specific printer(s) after you receive your laptop.  MOST PRINTERS WORK FINE–even printers without documented Linux support.  We have MANY options available when configuring your printers and most printers work well with CROSS Library Mint.

Alternative printing options (if necessary):

  • We highly recommend 64-bit Linux Mint Laptops in comparison to a system running Windows — We will work to configure your printer for you.  If we cannot, you might consider using another printer for CROSS Library.  This is not normally the situation, but we are listing the possibility for your awareness.
  • Linux has a long history of printing capabilities, so it’s difficult to summarize all of its printing support–basically, most older printers work fine with our configuration.  Printing capabilities of Linux Mint for newer printers have also expanded dramatically in the past couple of years making it easier to get updated drivers for many newer HP, Brother, Xerox, Sharp printers and many more….  In short, many USB printers now can auto-detect and work well.  For network and wireless printers, we locate/install the driver, and at times the system will auto-detect a good driver–we work out the details and test with you verifying the printed results.
  • TROUBLE CONFIGS: WHEN ENABLED, the following printer features CAN CAUSE TROUBLE with some printer drivers:
    -billing codes
    -user authentication
    -departmental printing codes
    -secure print
    (In most cases, printer compatibility may be easily provided via an updated vendor-supplied printer driver (we install and configure it for you).  In case that does not work, you may print from CROSS Library to the PDF printer, then copy, view, and print that document on a Windows system using the printer driver of choice as a work-around, if necessary.  We provide basic instructions in our Getting Started Guide.)
  • In a very small number of cases, it may be necessary to print to PDF in CROSS Library, copy the PDF files across your network, and View/Print that file using a Windows printer driver.  We can configure a desktop shortcut to copy the PDF files to a USB FlashDrive or network to your Windows system for easy printing to your printer if this is a requirement.  (For reference, this is less than 1% of all printing cases, so this is for disclosure only.)
  • If you require use of one of the above ‘TROUBLE CONFIGS’, we can help research compatibility before you purchase a CROSS Library Mint Laptop.

Network Details

All systems we provide include wireless capability.  If your network is wired, you may need a USB-LAN adapter in order to connect the cable.  Some systems include a LAN port which you can use to connect using a network cable.  In a pinch, most stores including Walmart, Sam’s, Best Buy, and Costco carry USB LAN or WAN adapters.  Your local computer store can also help you choose the correct adapter if you can provide your network router brand and model number.
