Re: Wifi disabled by radio killswitch: Wireless becomes unavailable every time I close and open my laptop [HP Pavillion]

Though it doesn't solve the issue, is there a setting that changes the state of the laptop when it closes so it doesn't suspend/go to sleep? That could be a suitable enough work-around.

Re: Xsane Error Epson ET-4500 "Failed to Start Scanner"

I disabled the ufw with the command sudo ufw disable then restarted the computer. Simple scan still isn't doing anything ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Thanks for all the help with Xsane! I'm able to scan my family photos to .png files now :)

Re: Xsane Error Epson ET-4500 "Failed to Start Scanner"

I just did a test install on another system for my Epson. If you edit that imagescan.conf appropriate to your printer name info and IP address (your address on your network), all three: Image Scan, Simple Scan, and Xsane should work. It took that simple edit to get all three for me. Am I looking fo...

Re: Xsane Error Epson ET-4500 "Failed to Start Scanner"

To disable the firewall, should I just execute sudo ufw disable in the Terminal?

Edit: Nevermind. I executed sudo ufw status, and it said Status: inactive.

Bumping this thread because I'm still having the same issue 2 1/2 years later. I still can't close my laptop without it completely disabling the Wifi.

Re: Xsane Error Epson ET-4500 "Failed to Start Scanner"

Does either Simple Scan or XSane now work? Edit: Which version of Mint are you running? Simple Scan was working when I posted this, but now it isn't working anymore. Maybe it stopped working when I reinstalled the drivers? When I press the scan button, my scanner makes noises, Simple Scan gives the...

Re: Xsane Error Epson ET-4500 "Failed to Start Scanner"

Image Scan is part of the install package. I just double-checked. The unpacked folder should have that component in the "core" subfolder. The installed app is located in Menu - Graphics. Also, the package has an option to install for network-based scanner in the plugins folder. I just recently inst...

Re: Xsane Error Epson ET-4500 "Failed to Start Scanner"

Oh, is it this app? http://support.epson.net/linux/en/iscan_c.html

I downloaded and installed it and "Image Scan! for Linux" is listed in my programs now. When I try to open it, it just says "Could not send command to scanner. Check the scanner's status."

Re: Xsane Error Epson ET-4500 "Failed to Start Scanner"

Does the Epson Image Scan app also fail, or didn't you download the all-in-one package from Epson and install? I'm not sure what you mean by the Epson Image Scan app. I downloaded and installed the all-in-one scanner driver here (http://download.ebz.epson.net/dsc/search/01/search/searchModule), but...

Re: How do I dual boot Mint with Windows 10? HP Pavilion

I tried making rEFInd the default boot loader instead of grub by copying the configuration file into the Microsoft EFI folder then copying the rEFInd EFI file from the rEFInd folder into the Microsoft folder and renaming it "bootmgfw.efi". That created the same problem where it kept looping back int...
