Re: Syntax for the dd command (SOLVED)

Rene's advice was exactly what I needed. Many thanks for taking all the trouble, Rene. The Nook is now rooted and all went well apart from a problem with a faulty microSD card. Thanks also to the other contributors.

Re: Syntax for the dd command

I've got the device specifier, sdc, but I just want to check that, after mounting the SD card I do need to unmount it before using dd. This seems a bit surprising.

Re: Syntax for the dd command

Yes, I have to boot the Nook from the mini-SD card. I also have to get my laptop to mount the card, so the coding advice is invaluable. I'll have a go with this and the dd command (as soon as I have time) and report back. Many thanks for all the help.

Re: Syntax for the dd command

Many thanks for all the advice, folks. Should be able to work it out from all that - tomorrow. Re the USB Image Writer - I presume it works with SD cards as well as USB sticks?

Syntax for the dd command

Hello, I am about to root my Nook e-reader because the vendors, Barnes & Noble, have ceased to support it in the UK. There is a program to do the job, but I'm advised to Unzip the file you downloaded and write the NookManager.img file to an empty SD card. On Windows, you can use disk imager. Lin...

Re: Brother DCP-135C installation fails - SOLVED

The script finally worked. However I had to delete the unzipped script and download again. Seems a bit odd - maybe some corruption occurs if, like me, you don't put in the machine name at 1st attempt.
Many thanks for the hand-holding.

Re: Mint 12 Software Manager does not load package SOLVED

Many thanks, Hugh T, your solution worked perfectly. The delay's been because first I was busy and then my mobile broadband link was very poor and erratic for a few days.

Re: Mint 12 Software Manager does not load package

It's an Epson Stylus SX130. I'm sure I have the right driver, but when I try to install I get the message that lsb >= 3.2 is needed. However CUPS was invoked before that point so I reckon both are needed. Thanks for replying

Re: Bluetooth software query

I'm using Mint 12, 64-bit and trying to install via the bluetooth icon at the top of the screen. Maybe it would be better to use the terminal - if I knew the code.

Bluetooth software query

I'm trying to get my bluetooth mouse working (Dell Travel Mouse, which the system recognises as Dell BT Travel Mouse). Configuration fails each time. In the software manager I've found Bluez - is this the answer. It deletes a number of files, so I don't want to install it without advice.
