Re: Epson ET-3750 scan not working on Mint 19

Hi HAWR, I did not have to do that, nor does my system have those files you asked to create... Don't get me wrong: I'm not complaining about your answer - and probably I don't understand the issue - but there must be something else hindering the scanner... I've got a LM 19.3 Cinnamon 64bit that has ...

Re: Epson ET-3750 scan not working on Mint 19

Hi Jawkneebee+88, Great that we got the printer working (if I understood you correctly), the scanner should definitely also work!! I usually use other programmes here, but Simple Scan also works here (just tested it) - so there must be a way for your too, I guess... :wink: I'm no specialist at all; ...

Re: Epson ET-3750 scan not working on Mint 19

can any one walk me threw this? Hi Jawkneebee+88, Congrats, you found the right file (assuming you are using LM 19 on a 64bit system)! download it (save it on your computer) go to the folder where you saved the file (maybe it is your "Downloads"-folder?) right-click the .tar.gz-file, choose "extrac...

Hi guys, Maybe I am only too stupid or blind - I don't find a way to do it... For several reasons I want to change or add some of the Keywords of the apps in the menu. For example I want to add the keyword "software" to the "Anwendungsmanager" (German for software centre), because I want it to pop u...

Re: Epson ET-3750 scan not working on Mint 19

For the sake of completeness, I just wanted to add, that waiting paid off in this case: I've got an Epson ET-3750, connected via USB. Somehow I never managed to get the scanner to work so far, gave up in autumn... Now checked again and everything works "out of the box" with the new Epson driver/soft...

Re: Xreader: how to use default printer settings (multiple printers)

Hi Neil, Thanks for your answer. I do know how to select a specific printer; the problem is that when doing that all the settings do not change (or correspond to the Printers standard settings as set in Mint's Printer setup)... Or does it work on your machine? For example: When I select the "color p...

Xreader: how to use default printer settings (multiple printers)

Hi guys, In my daily workflow I need to print pages in colour or greyscale, one-sided or duplex. In order not to have to alter the settings for each and every print job, I duplicated my printer in Linux Mint, altered the standard settings for each instance and named them accordingly. So I've got: a)...

Re: [SOLVED] Mounting HDD taken out of RAID backup storage

Well, I fooled myself - sorry for that. :lol: I think we can keep this thread for reference - maybe someone can use it sometime...?

Re: Mounting HDD taken out of RAID backup storage

Maybe it is my fault all together: the USB/SATA-converter might be to old to manage the 4 TB HDDs... Will try to find out and report back... Thanks in the meantime!

Hi guys! Maybe this is a simple thing or beginner's mistake... Thanks for your help: I got a new external backup device with two HDDs in RAID 1 for a secure data backup (Fantec QB-X2US3R). I got this exact device because the manual states very very clearly that a single RAID 1-disk can be accessed a...

Hi squid-f,

I've got a hard time getting the Epson ET-3750 to scan (on LM 19 Cinnamon 64bit)... Also tried everything I could find in this forum and others, had no luck so far...

Also I am missing "/usr/lib/sane"... Did you find a solution yet?

Thanks and best regards

Hi guys, I just got an Epson Ecotank ET-3750 and run into similar problems - scanner is not found on system... Your answers might also help me, but strangely I don't have a folder "/usr/lib/sane", and therefore cannot copy files from there... Is there another location I should look at, or what three...

Thanks for the screenshot.
