Samsung C43x Driver

Hello again. I hope everyone is staying well.

I can't find a linux driver for the above model anywhere. I know Samsung sold their printer section to HP in 2017 but again no luck on the HP site.

If anyone could direct me towards a pdd for a Samsung C43x I would be most grateful.

Busybox Inframs

Built a laptop for a friend with Tricia 19 Cinnamon on it. Got the busybox etc screen. Tried to fix it then went for a clean install instead. It's gone belly up again. Is this a sign of a failing hard drive? I do have a new spare one. Should I chuck that in and give it a go?

Cheers, Chris

Hello again. I've installed Tricia 64bit on a Lenovo G50 laptop. All is good apart from the usb ports. They just won't work. Power is coming from them as they all charge my phone; but no matter what I plug in to them nothing is registered. Could anyone take me through how to address this or are the ...

Cannot delete folders in trash (solved)

I have two folders in my trash which contain mp3 files from my cd's. I cannot delete them. Apparently I don't own the folders or have permission?
