Re: Epson XP-405 driver

Just in case it might help someone out there, the installed driver for my system is epson-inkjet-printer-201201w_1.0.0-1lsb3.2_i386.deb 1.71 MB but it appears that it only covers the printing side of the XP-405. The scanner does not work via USB, nor wirelessly, on my desktop PC running Maya. And ye...

Re: Epson XP-405 driver

Still going round in circles. I am reaching the conclusion that there is no Epson XP-405 scanner driver (printer is OK) available from Linux. I have spent hours looking for one without success. :(

Re: Epson XP-405 driver

Everything seems to be working fine but the scanner driver is still missing. The printer driver was easy task, all I had to do is follow instructions on connecting to USB. Can't find the scanner driver though. Help please.

Many thanks srs5694. I will digest what you have written and read your page. It looks as if I will wait for LM with Secure Boot, I don't fancy Ubuntu. Regards.

Re: Windows 8 machines

You can "nuke" the hard drive using DBAN Hard Disk kill. That will securely wipe Windows 8 from your machine. In BIOS you have to uncheck the secure boot. If it works you should be able to install any version of MINT. Many thanks for your reply drbjerkass. Can somebody corroborate this? I have brok...

Windows 8 machines

I am running Maya and finding it very frustrating that a fix has not yet been found to dual boot with my new Windows 8 laptop. Apparently, there are ways to overcome the problem but far too complicated for some of us. I have tried several times but ended up having to reinstall W8 from factory settin...

Re: Mate 1.6 released - Someone already tried?

Well, the dust has settled this end. Problems over. I have gradually reconfigured Mate 1.6 to my previous settings and everything is working fine again. Back to normality.

Re: Mate 1.6 released - Someone already tried?

Upgrading from MATE 1.4 to 1.6 on Linux Mint 13 ruined everything for me. I have to reconfigure all my settings, figure out what wasn't properly migrated, and now I no longer have the Mint Menu! My fonts are also messed up! What happened? MATE 1.4 to 1.6? It feels like 1.4 to 2.0! Why would those w...

I am running Maya and I am experiencing problems since upgrading to Mate 1.6 (freezes, sluggishness and apps that don't work).

Re: LM14 won't install on Windows 8 laptop

First of all, apologies srs5694, I misread your post and did not realize that you were referring to your very first post. Anyhow, it is now all academic and there is no point in spending more time on this issue. Pointless trying to find a solution when there ain't one, although at one stage I though...

I asked for a number of clarifications and additional information, none of which you provided. If you can't be bothered to provide clarifying diagnostic information when others ask for it, you won't get much help! You've lost me there!

Re: LM14 won't install on Windows 8 laptop

In conclusion, OEMs have manipulated the motherboard so that only Windows 8 can be installed. This is true only of ARM-based computers that ship with Windows 8. Such systems are extremely rare, and they're mostly tablets and smartphones. On x86 and x86-64 systems that ship with Windows 8, Microsoft...
