Mint Felicia on EeePc 900

Postby nigj on Sun Dec 14, 2008 8:55 am

I have posted some questions and addressed some problems I have experienced with Felicia. Shut down problems, wireless problems and so on. One nice guest suggested this link http://array.org/ubuntu/setup-intrepid.html . I followed the instructions and it seems like most of my problems are solved. :D

But, do any of you know if there are drivers for my printer Lexmark X 4580, and is it possible to run TOM TOM programs in Linux? :?

A simple google tomtom linux reveals that it works

That is if it is gps navigation you're after :)
For printers the open printer database is the source
And - sorry that printer is a paperweight

There should be a read me in the tarball or on tomtoms site
I suspect this is rather straightforward compiling. Don't forget that build essential must be installed to compile
