Re: Document Scanner

Sorry this will not help you but this is what I found. The Brother DS-700D is a compact DIN A4 scanner, which is ideal for mobile usage due to its small dimensions. Unfortunately, there is no Linux driver provided for the DS-700D (although there are drivers provided for all the other scanners of the...

I assume that you do not mean 6gb for the Linux install?

Re: Files corrupting upon move to EXT3 drive

On systems with both windows and linux installed I always have a partition formatted as ntfs so that I can save all my data there. This allows me to access any data from both Windows and Linux. It also makes backing up easier as there is only one data source.

What format drives are the files on now? Linux can read ntfs formatted drives.

Re: Unable to boot Windows 7 after mint 17.1 installation

Are you able to boot into anything at present? Also what is on your second drive? Windows should always be installed first and then linux after. By putting Mint on sda1 you probably need to restore the Windows 7 master boot record. What I would do is firstly remove the sda1 partition using gparted o...

Re: Mint 17.1 XFCE won't burn to USB DVD

I think you will find that -r or -rw are the problem, but I am not sure why. Several of my customers have had the same problem with - dvds but changing to + has solved the problem. Perhaps this link may explain a bit better.

Re: Mint 17.1 XFCE won't burn to USB DVD

In my experience Brasero has always caused problems and I have stuck to K3B. However the discs that always work for me are DVD+R or DVD+RW, what discs are you using.

Re: Printing from Windows

You say: My printer is connected to my Linux desktop and I have printer sharing on. Do you mean it is a true network printer or is it a usb printer setup for print sharing.

Re: Having problems with connecting usb to HP laptop

IMHO I would ditch Mint 13 which is now not supported and install 17.1. This will give you a more up-to-date kernel which hopefully will support your usb attachments better. When you do a new install I always suggest three partitions, root, swap and home. Using this setup makes upgrading much simple...
