Re: Added user to a group and can't login

I recently (less than two months ago) did a clean install of Linux Mint. I've put some new stuff on there I'd like to keep, but it's not critical. Is this a difficult enough problem that wiping and doing a fresh install would be the best solution?

Re: Added user to a group and can't login

Obviously you have to enter the password for it. BTW: Using both does not make sense. Either you trust encryption, than one of both is enough or you don't trust it, than double encryption will not make it better; in the worst case (searching for a pattern) it can make things worse. Diverging from t...

Oh, my mistake. I believe I encrypted the home folder as well, yes.

Re: Added user to a group and can't login

Did you intentionally encrypt your home? Yes, I did this at the initial install of Linux Mint. When I boot my computer, it prompts me for the decryption password, and I can successfully do so. After that point is when it sits at a blank screen, when it normally takes a minute or two to bring up the...

Re: Added user to a group and can't login

At the login screen try pressing Ctrl+Alt+F1 to go to a virtual console (full screen terminal). Try to login as yourself. If that succeeds type the command groups to see what groups you are a member of. Write them down and share with us. While on the virtual console I suggest you also create a new ...

Added user to a group and can't login

I was messing around with Samba (per these instructions https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-wUfzdiE4m8) and noticed that my user wasn't a part of it's own group, if I remember correctly. That's to say "nathan" was not a member of group "nathan", if that's even possible. I checked th...

Re: If your scanner doesn't work

Well, I got my Epson Stylus NX420 scanner working. Not to my complete satisfaction, but it works. Here's what I did. First, I opened up the terminal and typed: sudo apt-get install libsane-dev Then I downloaded the file http://launchpadlibrarian.net/14664165/45-libsane.rules and pasted it in etc/ude...

Re: If your scanner doesn't work

With your printer ON and connected, can you give the return of this commands in the terminal : uname -a sane-config --version sane-find-scanner scanimage -V scanimage -L uname -a Linux HAL-9000 2.6.32-21-generic #32-Ubuntu SMP Fri Apr 16 08:09:38 UTC 2010 x86_64 GNU/Linux sane-config --version The ...

Re: If your scanner doesn't work

After downloading the printer driver, scanner driver, data package, and core package, I tried to use XSane Image Scanner and said

Failed to open device `epkowa:usb:002:003':
Access to resource has been denied.

Seems to be the closest I've been to getting it to work. :(

Re: Epson NX420 scanner driver from Epson

http://www.avasys.jp/lx-bin2/linux_e/spc/DL1.do is the Epson site as I see it, you download Image lite from the above page clicking on NX420 gives this http://avasys.jp/eng/linux_driver/download/lsb/epson-inkjet/escp/ which is the printer driver? See if you can access this webpage. http://www.avasy...

Re: If your scanner doesn't work

Hi all, just thought I'd share this fix with anyone who needs to get an Epson scanner working, (Mint 9 and i.i.r.c. also on Mint 7). I do a lot of film photography and consequent scanning of negatives and slides, so I really needed to get my scanner up and running on Mint 9 now that I have dumped X...
