Re: Cinnamon keeps crashing to fallback mode

Sadly it's still happening, even with those off. I guess it's just something I have to live with?

Re: USB WiFi Driver won't install

Can I assume that I must disable the internal wifi card to allow the USB one to work? I've been blacklisting every time to test. This PC takes ages to boot since it's a hard disk as opposed to an SSD...

Just trying yours now Jeremy, thanks.

Re: USB WiFi Driver won't install

It seems to be an RTL8811 or RTL8812, but it's branded "AC1200".

...and this IS the internet, right?

I have figured out how to disable the onboard WiFi so that I can install the drivers for my shiny new 5GHz USB WiFi adapter... but it won't work. I think the problem is in the script or the compilation of the code; ca...

Re: Disable onboard WiFi adapter... BUT!! [SOLVED]

Thank you HAWR. @Pjotr From the commands you helped me with, I was able (alongside some other reading) to "blacklist" the onboard adapter which was extremely helpful. The next difficulty is installing the Linux drivers for the USB one which isn't working as far as I can tell :-( I'll post a new topi...

Disable onboard WiFi adapter... BUT!! [SOLVED]

My onboard adapter is (a) flaky as hell and (b) 2.4GHz I have purchased a Linux Compatible 5GHz capable one with drivers on a CD. However; I cannot find a way to disable the onboard; an Ubuntu forum suggested commenting out the entry in etc/network/interfaces... but that's a dead loss because that f...

Re: Epson Stylus Photo PX700W scanner not detected over Wifi

Thanks Kyphi. When I get back home (away again) I will uninstall everything and do it all again in the order you list it. Then we'll see!

Re: Epson Stylus Photo PX700W scanner not detected over Wifi

BTW I added the following to epkowa.conf (usb and scsi were already there):

usb
scsi
net 192.168.0.25 1865

per the instructions. Even those instructions weren't clear that "1865" was the correct number to add; the writer seemed unsure?
