Re: Thunderbird authentication

It is a known problem but without a unified solution. One guy says he solved it by resetting cookies. I tried it without success.

Re: Simple scan in mint 19

Hello, in fact I purchased my Samsung printer after exhaustive research to make sure it came with Linux support. I have had it for almost seven years and always used the unified drivers sourced directly from Samsung. But then I exchanged this printer with my parents who gave me their HP 1018. And yo...

Re: Simple scan in mint 19

Thanks for all that. I will have a look tomorrow. As for the quality of simple scan it has been adequate. But I found when I print scanned documents in 18.3 they are very dark. For important stuff the print quality was not great. Which is where Vue Scan came in. I hope I can also find a solution to ...

Re: Simple scan in mint 19

Hi phd21, yes I unplugged and re-plugged it. It did not make any difference for either of those two applications. Yes, VueScan works on my Mint 19 and it is good. But I was hoping for free ware. I hope I can solve the problem with simple scan or sane even.

Re: Simple scan in mint 19

It scans flawlessly. And also the mint 18.3 live disk does a good scan pretty well. My scanner is the cannon Lide ...

Re: Simple scan in mint 19

Thank you to every body here for their feedback. It is especially good to connect with you ph21. Hope all is well with you. My apologies if I was not clear. Naturally I cleaned the scanner. But the main point is simple scan within 18.3 does a relatively OK job. No streaks at all. This streak is only...
