Re: The SSD puzzle.

My desktop has two SSD's in it. Both have data and power cables (of course)...Samsung 840 EVO and Samsung 850 EVO. Never heard of an SSD that doesn't have a power cable (unless it the card type that plugs into a bus connection, of course, which also doesn't need a data cable). So if there's no power...

D-Link DWA-192 support?

Before I buy it, wondering if the D-Link DWA-192 wireless network adapter is supported? Has really good reviews, but don't want to get it unless supported by Linux Mint.

Thanks!

Re: XSane scanner and Epson WF-4630

I did exactly what you said above, didn't work for me. Not only that, it made XSane scanner take the full "almost 3 minutes" to find the scanner until I reversed the two configuration file changes that I had made.

Glad that it works for you.

Re: XSane scanner and Epson WF-4630

Okay, tried just installing the Epson iscan bundle using their install.sh script without installing the "sane" package first this time, and did the minimal configuration changes in /etc/sane.d (see below). And it doesn't work, get the usual "Could not send command to scanner. Check the scanner's sta...

Re: XSane scanner and Epson WF-4630

Firewall on Linux is between the scanner and the Linux software, so yes, gufw firewall has to have a rule. Otherwise my computer can't talk to the scanner. Been there done that.

Re: XSane scanner and Epson WF-4630

This is just crazy, but I reinstalled Linux Mint again, and now the scanner is found by simple scan and xsane scanner right away. Might take a chance and install Epson iscan software, but I hate to screw with something that works. Have not changed any network configuration from the default that Linu...

Re: XSane scanner and Epson WF-4630

How would you suggest that I reconfigure my network? Exactly what are you thinking needs to be reconfigured? My network works fine in all respects except this one, returning after finding the scanner. I'm pretty sure that this one is Linux somehow, but I don't know where to start to reconfigure it t...

Re: XSane scanner and Epson WF-4630

After thinking about this for a while, I've decided that it isn't taking almost 3 minutes to find my scanner. What's happening is that it finds my scanner fairly quickly, but then times out on the network waiting for any other laggard scanners to come along. So my real question would be how can I co...

XSane scanner and Epson WF-4630

I'm using Linux Mint 18 with my Epson WF-4630 multifunction printer/scanner vi wifi. XSane Image Scanning Program works without any configuration, but it takes a long time to find my wifi scanner. I'm wondering if there isn't a tweak that I can make to speed up just the process of XSane finding my s...

Re: Epson WF-4630, prints but scanner is not connecting?

Well, finally tried it, and the XSane scanner is able to use the document feeder. Epson must be using some "universal" commands for their scanner, which makes it work generically. So I guess that I can live with it *smile*. Would be nice to get all the Epson features, but I'll take what I can get fo...

Re: Epson WF-4630, prints but scanner is not connecting?

When something does not work it is easy to lose track of what changes have been made by the operator and after a while nothing will work - hence my suggestion of a fresh installation. As mentioned before, in Linux Mint 18, to get Image Scan up and running all that is required is to install the Epso...

Re: Epson WF-4630, prints but scanner is not connecting?

Well, some things never change. Just installed the sane package, and this is what I see: roger@roger-Linux ~ $ sudo service saned status [sudo] password for roger: ● saned.service Loaded: masked (/dev/null; bad) Active: inactive (dead) This is not useful, but I did bug report it last time around.

Re: Epson WF-4630, prints but scanner is not connecting?

Okay, I went on a voyage of discovery, looking at various linux distributions and desktop environments. Ended up coming back to Linux Mint with MATE. Couldn't beat it for stability and ease of configuration. This time around, Simple Scan and Xsane Image Scanner did both work with no configuraton req...

Re: backup files

I realize that this thread is a few months old now, but I thought that I'd throw in my two cents for historical value. I just set up CrashPlan on the Linux side of my dual-boot desktop (Windows and Linux) last night, and was pretty pleased. I've used internet backup for a long time now for a couple ...

Re: Warning about caffeine!

Well, you're probably both correct. I was having problems with getting my screen turned off automatically after idle time, so I attributed that to seeing caffeine in the ps listing after booting before I turned it on. I've used these "keep awake" apps before on other platforms, and you would start i...

Re: Linux Mint 18 MATE: Chrome forgets tabs when restarted

Ah, I think that I see now what happens. MATE, as installed by default, doesn't show running but iconified instances of an application. From all the testing that I've been doing, I had 3 iconified instances of Chrome running which I didn't see until I added the "Window List" applet to the panel. Onc...

Re: Linux Mint 18 MATE: Chrome forgets tabs when restarted

This gets even weirder. After a few "x" exits, I now have 79 chrome processes: $ ps -e | grep chrome | wc 79 316 2449 I only have 17 open tabs at the moment...this is beginning to look like a major leak of processes and memory. I guess I should bug report this to Google, that Chrome is not killing i...

Re: Linux Mint 18 MATE: Chrome forgets tabs when restarted

Hmmm, interesting...If I exit Chrome using "Exit" from the menu rather than clicking the "x" in the upper right hand corner, then it apparently actually exits. Then when it restarts it restarts all the tabs. I'm not sure now what the "x" in the upper right corner does in LInux Mint? Maybe just exit ...

Re: Linux Mint 18 MATE: Chrome forgets tabs when restarted

I should add that once Chrome has restarted without my open tabs, even after I open them again via History and immediately exit so that it remembers my tabs, it will no longer restart with my open tabs. I have to go into History each time to re-open my tabs. This really does make me bonkers.

Linux Mint 18 MATE: Chrome forgets tabs when restarted

Using Linux Mint 18 with MATE desktop. I have Chrome set up to start up with the same tabs that it used last time. And I'm careful to have all my normal tabs up when I exit, and to exit Chrome before restarting or shutting down my system. At some point, when I start Chrome it will not remember my ta...
