Re: HPLIP update failure

so dpkg thinks only 3.14 is installed; and hplip thinks it is at 3.17 ....... gosh Your hplip script you gave us seems to suggest all is fine; I think the command hp-check is essentially what you gave us; if you ran hp-setup it would check things out again; ________ what I did notice is mention of a...

Re: Unable to scan with Canon Pixma MG2922 scanner

SANE would suggest your 2900 series device is fully supported; http://www.sane-project.org/sane-mfgs.html#Z-CANON ........ so one wonders if the network connection is all good; as an alternative, Canon do supply drivers from here http://support-asia.canon-asia.com/c...

Epson WF-3620 can Turboprint resolve your issues

sometimes if you want quality, you need to go looking for it; Turboprint are specialists in printer drivers; the Epson is just a generic driver that just gets many different devices to print; Turboprint support the WF3620 http://www.zedonet.com/en_p_turboprint_driver.phtml?printer=Epson_WorkForceWF3...
