Re: Can I sell Linux mint with hardware in India...?

He's obviously selling used machines, NOT an OEM, so I see no problem. Not obvious to me but, in any case, it is not relevant. The issue is the commercial sale of Linux Mint installed on computers and I do not think it makes much difference whether it goes with new or used hardware. There are 339 t...

Re: Problem installing LAN Canon MF212 scanner

For canon scanners you have to d/l and install scangearmp2 from canon website For what purpose? What does it do? If it just scans the subnetwork looking for devices it is not going to work because the device is on another subnetwork. That is the same XSANE does. XSANE already scans and finds the sc...

Re: Can I sell Linux mint with hardware in India...?

I was thinking about opening a website and sell some customizable PC and laptops and I want to use Linux mint as my primary operating system on those machines.

Re: Problem installing LAN Canon MF212 scanner

I thought I would contact the developers of SANE and suggest the possibility of manually supplying the IP address of the scanner instead of only allowing SANE to search the LAN but I cannot find a contact form or email address at http://www.sane-project.org/ Maybe someone with better ability can con...

Re: Error activating XKB configuration

I have been doing some thinking and experimenting. While the problem seems to happen most of the times when I start up the computer there are a few times when it doesn't. Then I thought this is probably a user account problem and not a system-wide problem so I probably would not need to keep re-star...

Re: Problem installing LAN Canon MF212 scanner

OK, I have made some progress in that I have identified the cause of the problem but not a solution to it. I should have thought of this earlier but it just did not occur to me. The main home LAN is 192.168.1.XXX and the printer/scanner is connected to that and has an IP address in that range. Sever...

For Simple Scan and Xsane it could be helpful to add the sane-ppa to get more recent sane versions: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:rolfbensch/sane-git sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade The sane-ppa is suggested among others on Ubuntu help for sane-troubleshooting: https://help.ubuntu.com/commun...

I have 2 identical units of this hardware, one running Windows and one Mint. The Windows one reports the Graphics card is an Intel Graphics 4600.


What does the line command inxi -G report in Linux? That should tell you what hardware and software is being used.

I am still working on this issue with no luck. I see other threads where Epson scanners have had problems and have been resolved. I am hoping I can get this scanner to work with Linux over the network.

Re: how to set time limits on a computer?

Is there a way in linux to limit the time a person spends on the computer? Like maybe a program that automatically shuts the computer off after time is up? I'd hope it could be password protected, but curious to know if anyone out there knows a way. Who are you trying to control? Yourself or someon...

Re: Teamviewer

With a reasonably good connection you should have no problem using a remote desktop application. None whatsoever. My connection is never that good and I generally manage to use AnyDesk and video-conference simultaneously. If I notice things beginning to slow down I will switch from video conference ...

Re: Teamviewer

Any remote desktop application is going to need a relatively good connection. There is no way of getting around that.

Many icons can be found under home/user/icons and under usr/share/icons.

Also in the program's own folder.

Re: Teamviewer

If you try TeamViewer be ready to be blocked when you least expect it accused of "commercial use" and take two weeks to resolve it. And then the same thing again a month later.

I would start with Anydesk which seems to be lighter and work better for me.
