Ok, so I installed directly as instructed on the website you linked. On the last step where it said to go Smp...

Re: Some programs I need

I had a question regarding this. For a really good multi-media player to watch movie discs on your computer, in addition to VLC, install and use SMplayer and MPV.

I updated my post again, and you replied quickly again, so please re-read the last post.

You can still install the PPA for MakeMKV, and I would.

Hope This helps ...

Yes, it does. But, sometimes there are "Recommended" and or "Suggested" packages that you can install as well. The "Recommended" packages are probably a good idea to install as well, although not necessary (usually), it depends. With "Suggested" packages, they can add other abilities and or functio...

Re: Printer will print, but won't scan.

If you think it's a permission-to-write problem you need to find the equivalent node for that device...somewhere in the /dev/ folder. Maybe I misunderstood what you were saying. For some reason ...
