Hi Rainier1960, if you want some help with either your printer or your scanner (which is it that isn't working?) please add some basic details to your question. Like which Linux Mint version and desktop environment you installed, what printer and/or scanner you have, how it is connected to the computer, what you have already tried, and so on. See more tips on getting help in the "Before you post please read this" link above, in the forum rules bit.
Linux Mint 14 Nadia / 64-bit / Cinnamon
