Re: Error connecting windows share (SMB, UFW & kernel 4.8)

Hi amuk! I was able to solve my issue by adding a few lines to /etc/samba/smb.conf In the GLOBAL SETTINGS I updated my "workgroup" to the workgroup of my windows computer. I then added this line under the updated workgroup: name resolve order = bcast host I hope this helps. It was driving me mad til...

[SOLVED] Error connecting windows share (SMB, UFW & kernel 4.8)

I recently upgraded my Mint 18 (x86_64) from kernel 4.4 to 4.8.30. Since then, I can't connect via samba to a windows shared folder in a W7 computer. I try smb://w7_computer/photos/ in Caja 1.14.2 but only to get this error: Can't show <smb://w7_computer/photos/> Error: Can't mount the shared folder...

Re: Scanner hp c4180 linux mint 18

Hi Nils!

Have you a network scanner, UFW enabled in your machine and Mint 18? If so, try disabling UFW and rebooting. More info here:

Re: DELL C3765dnf "waste receptable full" bug

CUPS 1.7.2 is the 'faulty' version. This bug was corrected in 1.7.5, you may upgrade if the 'waste receptable full' message is too annoying. ;)

If you are considering an upgrade to LM18, 'Sarah' is shipped with CUPS 2.1.3:

Hope this helps. ;)

Re: Old HP printer

As DanielR says, Laserjet 4000N should have at least one ethernet port (a Jetdirect print server). The N in 4000N means 'network' version, so it should be easy to connect and make hplip driver work. If you don't have the user's guide, here it is: ftp://ftp.uni-marburg.de/lokal/hardware/drucker/lj400...

Hi Terrortec! It's seems this is a known CUPS bug, there are many pages in the net about it.

Re: (SOLVED) Scanner not recognized after upgrading to LM18

Hi kyphi! Yes, I have tested kernel 4.7, and the scanner doesn't work. It seems something involving the firewall has changed since kernel 4.4 but I don't know what is. I also have a firewall in my router so ufw can be disabled, and I can also live perfectly using kernel 4.2, I don't need kernel 4.4....

Re: (SOLVED) Scanner not recognized after upgrading to LM18

Test made with Mint 17.3, exactly the same results as in the previous message, so something happens between firewall and kernel 4.4 and it's beyond my knowledge. Any idea is welcome. ;)

Re: Security issue on Linux Mint 18 Cinnamon 64 bit!

Rkhunter doesn't search hidden ports unless "unhide" it's installed in your system. Open synaptic, install 'unhide' and Rkhunter will automatically search for hidden ports.

Well... more tests done. Same computer as always but new hard disk: - Installed Mint 18 from scratch, kernel is 4.4, nvidia drivers, epson drivers, full update & upgrade: scanner works perfectly - Enable UFW: the problems start. Iscan says cant send command to scanner, Xsane doesn't find scanner, sc...

Re: (SOLVED) Scanner not recognized after upgrading to LM18

Thanks for your help, kyphi. I think the configuration should be ok, because starting Mint 18 with kernel 4.2 and ufw enabled everything works fine: Xsane, Iscan, scanimage -L, all of them do what it's supposed they have to do, if a deb file were missing or a .conf file were wrong, should not work n...

Re: (SOLVED) Scanner not recognized after upgrading to LM18

Even a command as easy as "scanimage -L" fails to detect the scanner with kernel 4.4. Restarting with kernel 4.2, same computer, same scanner, same user and same permissions, detects the scanner correctly in two seconds.

Well, my user belongs to "scanner" group and the problems remain. Adding "saned" group also doesn't work. It's hard to believe that this problem is not kernel related, because starting with kernel 4.2 the network scanner works perfectly and restarting with 4.4 kernel without changing anything else ,...

Re: Scanner not recognized after upgrading to LM18

Finally I get this issue solved. After lots of tests, all with the same result (Xsane lasting three minutes to start and Iscan not working), restarted with kernel 4.2.0-42 and everything worked fine, Xsane starts in two seconds and the same for Iscan. Restarted again with kernel 4.4.0-36, and the pr...

Re: Scanner not recognized after upgrading to LM18

More info: Xsane works, altough it takes about three minutes to display de scanning interface. Looking in the "Information" option of the "File" menu says it's loading the epson2.conf instead of epkowa.conf. Commenting the "epson2" line in dll.conf makes Xsane fail to start (scanner not found). Edit...

(SOLVED) Scanner not recognized after upgrading to LM18

Hi all! I was using my Epson SX235W printer & scanner under LM17.3 without any problem. This weekend upgraded to LM18 and since then, my scanner is not recognized. Epson "Image Scan! for Linux" takes a lot of time to start (about 2 min and 40 seconds), but only to show a window with the message "Cou...
