Re: HP LaserJet Pro MFP M281fdw

thanks Cliff; If all else fails you may have to ... wait until the Mint repository is updated for the scanning capability of 3.18.x. past experience is sadly that does not happen; so Mint 20 will come out in July-Aug 2020; and will snapshot the latest hplip of that time; the intervening updates of 1...

Re: HP LaserJet Pro MFP M281fdw

so to install the latest version of hplip, you need to use the terminal; (the black tv screen on the bottom line); or just press three keys down at once: control and alt and t ..... like a piano chord; you need to paste the commands that are below; (copy them using control and v keys); and to paste ...

new graphics card; grateful for comments

so I have just used the basic graphics output of successive motherboards; as it has seemed ok; no graphics cards; we recently got a 4K tv and I was impressed by the quality of the image; I saw one could get 4k monitors; I had wondered about upgrading to that, and I understand I would need a graphics...

HP 5510 is airprint-compatible

So Mick; that 5510 of yours is airprint-compatible; and that came with Mint 19; (Ubuntu introduced it last year with 17.04) so Mint will set it up as a printer automatically; if you go to your PRINTERS folder; right-click on the icon; select PROPERTIES: and look in MAKE & MODEL if you tell it what i...

Re: HP LaserJet Pro MFP M281fdw

so you seem to be running hplip version 3.17.10 and the printing side of your device would need 3.18.5 according to HP; but if you are printing well on the airprint driver, all seems fine; (you aren't using hplip to print ..) I suspect for the scanner to work, you need the newer version of hplip; bu...

Re: Canon MAXIFY MB5420 need drivers & software

thanks; those instructions are all good for Mint 18

according to SANE, http://www.sane-project.org/sane-mfgs.html#Z-CANON the scanner should work fine with simple scan or xsane

(as long as the MB is already talking to your router ..)

Canon MAXIFY MB5420: I recommend the Canon drivers

so should I assume/guess that you have installed Mint 19? I ask because with Mint 19 came airprint-support; and your very fine MB is airprint-compatible; so one would have thought Mint would have spotted it and auto-configured it; I assume it is recognised by the router, if it is wireless? Can you p...

Re: Mint 18/19 And Canon Color Laser All In One

one can email Canon; and I emailed them about your problem; they say "we have installed the v3.50 UFR driver in Mint 19 and printed to MF8280, MF6160 and MF6275 without a problem." I wonder if you look again at the error log and see what it says for Mint 19 https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DebuggingPrintingP...
