Re: {SOLVED] Unable to scan with Brother DCP-L2550DW from Mint 20

No problems printing or scanning after the kernel update. Printer is still a 2540 and the scanner a 2550. But it seems to be happy!

Re: {SOLVED] Unable to scan with Brother DCP-L2550DW from Mint 20

Brian, I was not able to play around with the printer yesterday and finally got to it today. But there were some Mint updates waiting, so with the exception of the kernel, I installed them. After that I went to print a page before running your last suggestions. Well both the eSCL and ESCL options we...

Re: Unable to scan with Brother DCP-L2550DW from Mint 20

At present, with airscan and ipp_usb installed scanning works well. You should therefore edit your first post and put [SOLVED] into the subject header. Given the subject of my post, you are right. I did not do it earlier today because the printer part was still baulky. Frankly, it did not occur to ...

Re: Corrupted display

I too have an addon nvidia card. When I was trying the live disk, as well as when I installed, I never saw any sort of nVidia option, just normal, compatibility, and OEM install. None of those worked for me with regard to having the nvidia card drivers install. To get it to work I have change the BI...

Re: Unable to scan with Brother DCP-L2550DW from Mint 20

I have the same DCP-L2550DW printer at work and I had to go back to Mint 19.3 to run the scanner. Salutation! Salut! If you read Brian's suggestions in this thread, the printer can be made to both print and scan using Mint 20. It is not plug and play, but once someone guides you through the process...

Re: Unable to scan with Brother DCP-L2550DW from Mint 20

The results of my preliminary tests. All print tests used Text Editor just to keep it as simple as possible; I wrote 'This is a test". All scan tests used Document Scanner. Although the scanner was powered down at various times to prevent it going to sleep, the computer was not rebooted or shut down...

Re: Unable to scan with Brother DCP-L2550DW from Mint 20

Thanks for the further suggestions Brian. Somehow when I was removing San-Libs my video went awry -- I must have made a royal mistake somewhere. Mint said that video hardware acceleration was not being used and that there would be high CPU usage. An understatement, the computer was frozen. After som...

Re: Unable to scan with Brother DCP-L2550DW from Mint 20

The code is, of course simple-scan "escl:http://127.0.0.1:60000" I have tried this a few times and it has worked consistently; the drop down menu switches by itself after a moment or two to show the ESCL variant. I will play with that variant more over the weekend to be sure it works consistently i...

Re: Unable to scan with Brother DCP-L2550DW from Mint 20

air scan does not work at all. Failed to connect it tells me when I use the command you sent. What seems to work consistently with simple scan is "ESCL Brother DCP-L2550DW series (USB)". In the drop down menu there is also the same entry but with "eSCL" at the beginning. xSane has a scanner with the...

Re: Unable to scan with Brother DCP-L2550DW from Mint 20

Thanks for your excellent advice/suggestions Brian. I used apt remove to get rid of ippusbxd; it seemed to work. Should I have purged it instead? I tried scanning a document and again document scanner asked which scanner I wanted to use. As it showed DCP-L2550DW as the top choice, I went with that. ...

Re: Unable to scan with Brother DCP-L2550DW from Mint 20

The simple-scan command brought up the scanner with air-scan in front of the scanner name. Some of the other choices that were there previously were not in the drop down menu. The options were only airscan and the printer name versions with no preceding words. I clicked on the scan button and there ...

{SOLVED] Unable to scan with Brother DCP-L2550DW from Mint 20

I did a test install of 20 to see if there would be any issued with my printer etc; there were none in 19. Well the print part of my DCP-L2550DW works although there are two printers shown when I am asked to select a printer. Both have the correct model name but one says "series" and just outputs mu...

PROBLEM SOLVED Re: Will a MSI GeForce GT 1030 2GH LP OC work with Mint 20??

Well it was a long convoluted process but it worked! The install using the APT command took more time than I had expected but that was probably a combination of 20 being on a HD and the amount of downloading of components that were needed; I must confess I had not changed the repository location to ...

Re: Will a MSI GeForce GT 1030 2GH LP OC work with Mint 20??

Thanks Robin.

Tomorrow after I am fortified with lots of coffee, I will experiment with the spare HD that has Mint 20 installed on it.

I sure hope this works!
