Re: Mint 9 LTS maintenance

Mint does not have a Universe repository. I don't know how it could have got there, but to get rid of the error, you will have to edit from your Software Sources program, and find/edit out the Universe part. (or you can manually edit the /etc/apt/sources.list file as superuser I am sorry for my pre...

I still run the latest when it comes to browsers, just install Ubuntu Tweak, and add the PPA's you need... Very easy... A...

Re: Benq 4300u Scanner ...

I have this scanner (since 2004)... Never managed to make it work in Linux... I have to reboot in winxp to scan :(

Yesterday I set up a "VirtualBox XP", just so I can scan without a reboot...

I would be VERY VERY PLEASED if any of you guys post a solution !
