Re: Setup scanner and bluetooth file sharing in LM14 Cinnamo

Hi:

I tried to use the trick of configuring the scanner in terminal but all I found was the printer which worked already. How did you set up the scanner that way?
Thanks

Re: wireless card hardware switch [SOLVED]

I am having the same issue but when I run the code rfkill unblock it gives me the help info. When I tried rfkill unblock wifi it seemed to work but no dice.
Any ideas?
BTW I did load the additional drivers for broadcom that popped up.
TIA
