Re: Scan with Canon lide120 deliver a black image or page.

Thank you Kato and THX for your time and the immense help and assistance offered.

Am quite surprised as to how easily a program ...

Re: Scan with Canon lide120 deliver a black image or page.

I have downloaded the scangear mp2 in my downloads section from canon but how to install them is a mystery. The install command with sudo has no relevant explanation in the terminal window. The instruction by xenopeek in the newbie section lacks several pertinent information for installing a tar.gz ...

Re: installing JAVA 8 is a fiasco :roll:

Thank you Pjotr, You have saved my day. I was stuck because the <priority > number 1 had no space before the path. On a second attempt, I entirely discarded the priority, therefore the command prompted me the same statement as an error, which I could not figure. I am very grateful and appreciate you...

Re: How to check the integrity of the downloaded ISO image of Linux Mint 18.3 on WinXP [Solved]

Therefore a newbie would try to assess the Authenticity or integrity with the software that he is best familiar with i.e. Windows. Fair point. On the other hand, very few Windows users have ever run a checksum or GPG check, so they're going to have to learn something new either way. In my humble op...

Re: How to check the integrity of the downloaded ISO image of Linux Mint 18.3 on WinXP [Solved]

Wait. You guys are talking about using the iso to run a live session, and then using that live session to check the authenticity of the iso? Why are you checking it if you already trust it? Logically speaking you cannot check authenticity this way. That appears to be a reasonable thought . We trust...

Re: How to check the integrity of the downloaded ISO image of Linux mint 18.3 sylvia

Try this article: Step by Step Using Sha256sum on Windows XP I am indebted to you JoeFootball; that was the answer for integrity check. If this utility were provided to the new user on the verification page , it would have been ...
