Problem with my use of rsync

I think there's something wrong with the following script, run from an .sh file. #!/bin/bash rsync -avh --delete --exclude=".*" ~/ARCHIVE /media/martin/0E7E-5D80/ The script is intended (1) to copy any fresh or modified files in the hard-drive folder ARCHIVE to a folder ARCHIVE on a USB fl...

Re: exiftool and Date/Time Original

t42, in my case, since I often crop images, Modify Date can be different, but, apart from occasional lack of data for Date/Time Original ( : : : : ), that and Create Date are the same. Many thanks for your help.

Re: exiftool and Date/Time Original

t42 , actually I have very little understanding at all of terminal commands. Since my mistyped command clearly ignored file.name, it seemed superfluous, so I tried it again omitting that detail. Thank you for supplying the command. That's really useful. Guessing from what you supplied, I tried exif...

[SOLVED] exiftool and Date/Time Original

I've been using exiftool file.name |grep -i date to extract exif data for a specific photo-image file. Today I accidentally entered exiftool file.name !grep -i date and the result was that exif data was returned for every photo-image file in the directory. Unsurprisingly it also works with exiftool ...

Re: Epson ET-2710 prints blank pages. Why?

Re: Epson ET-2710 prints blank pages. Why?

Archive Manager shows no files.

If I attempt to install
ipp-usb_0.9.17-1+48.1_amd64.deb
I receive "Same package is already installed".

Searching with Software Manager for ipp-usb brings up the (uninstalled) package Ippusbxd 1.32-2

Re: Epson ET-2710 prints blank pages. Why?

There's I'm sure a better way to find out, but I went into Software Manager and searched for 'ipp'.
ipp-usb is not mentioned.
Ippusbxd is not installed.
Cups-ipp-utils is installed.

Re: Epson ET-2710 prints blank pages. Why?

brian_p , I followed your instructions, and received the message 'Same version is already installed'. 'Reinstall package' was an option, so I did that, switched off, and tried to print. This time a 'Not connected?' message flashed up, which hadn't happened before, and there was no paper movement in...

all41 , I'm afraid 'After loading the driver I had to go back through the Printers utility setup' is meaningless to me, so I couldn't try out your suggestion.

[SOLVED] Epson ET-2710 prints blank pages. Why?

My laptop is connected via USB cable to an Epson ET-2710. It is recognised by System Settings, and I've set it as Default. Using Skanlite, I can put photos on the Epson, and obtain digital images with no problem. I just converted several score. But if I try to print from LibreOffice, or from XReader...

Re: How do I set up my EPSON ET-2710 to scan?

I tried both, but the file isn't there. However, a couple of days later and the problem seems to have resolved itself, at least, as far as scanning is concerned. Printing remains a problem, but I'll start a new thread for that.
