Simple-Scan for Epson Perfection V500 PHOTO

Getting Epson scanner files that really work was a nightmare for me. In Synaptic, the core pkg and the data pkg were wrong (did not work for me), the plugin pkg was missing. The three pkgs below made Simple-Scan work with my Epson Perfection V500 PHOTO scanner. I thought that following these bread c...

Thank you, Ilu. I was afraid that I had done something crazy or stupid.

Underlines flakey in system monospace 14

Suddenly and unexpectedly the system monospace 14 font in Mousepad and Medit handles the bottom pixels erratically. The underline appears not to work at all using the underline key. Yet moving the arrow keys around causes the underlines to appear and then disappear. I rebooted thinking something had...

Re: need to change email address

Oops. There is still a problem with the login. It presents the wrong password. I know that, so it is no problem. I just override it with the correct password. But it is going to give someone else fits.

No, thank you. Notification of your message reached me with the appropriate email address. And I have logged on with the appropriate address and password. I'm good to go. Thanks again.

Re: need to change email address

In UserControlPanel,EditAccountSettings any attempt to enter Password, ConfirmPassword or CurrentPassword presents a dropdown list of UserName or OldEmail or NewEmail and thereby preventing the insertion of a password.

Re: need to change email address

I have received a new password. However, If I logoff and then try to login the old password is apparently present (it's much longer than my new one). I must then replace it in the form with the new password. Thunderbird then pops up a window asking if I want to keep the new password. I reply yes. Bu...

need to change email address

I've changed email providers. But, the password I have recorded does not match the one SolydXK has recorded. There does not seem to be an "I forgot" procedure.

youtube upgrade

Running youtube on Solydxk 9. Apparently, youtube has made major changes. Now, the sound does not quit when changing pages. I know this is not a Solydxk problem, but I was just wondering if any body else has experienced this , or have I borked my system? Edited: found that I can revert to old workin...

Where else besides Screensaver is the Lock Screen option set. It's off in
Screensaver, yet still locks the screen after blanking. Solydx 8 didn't do this.

Solved: Error trying to set label for new solydx9 partition

Solved: Only GParted invoked from a partition which has the same username as another, target, partition can change the partition label. If the two partitions don't use the same username then the actor will not have write permissions on the target. I installed a second partition with solydx9 and set ...

Re: Error trying to set label for new solydx9 partition

I don't think so. My understanding is that you cannot modify partition data while the partition is opened, locked. Are you saying that is wrong? $ sudo e2label /dev/sda8 solydx9 [sudo] password for albert: e2label: Filesystem has unsupported read-only feature(s) while trying to open /dev/sda8 Couldn...

Re: Error trying to set label for new solydx9 partition

I tried to set sda8 from 2 earlier versions of Solydx on sda3 and sda7. They both had GParted 0.19.0. The new install of Stretch uses GParted 0.25.0, but of course you can only change unlocked partitions. Is there a way that I can get GParted 0.25.0 on Jessie?

Solved: Error trying to set label for new solydx9 partition

Sorry, but this is the first time attaching screenshots. I have no idea what the error detail is telling me. I tried to set the label from both solydx8-1 and solydx8-2. I am assuming that there is a bug in GParted. Solydx9 is installed in /dev/sda8: errorone.png result of apply: errortwo.png errorth...

Re: Just installed solydx9 iso no updates nor bluetooth

Thank you, ilu. I had already installed blue* and everything worked fine. Just thought someone might want to know. I never had to do that before. Also, the next day a bunch of updates showed up and installed. So I am cool. However, there was one minor glitch: On bootup I receive the following popup:...

I just installed solydx9 from iso. The updates during the install failed. Can I update with the installed distro or must I wait and install again later. Also, no bluetooth running for my wireless mouse.

Re: People still using DMO - modify your sources before updating! NOW!

I made no conscious choice one way or the other about the contents of /etc/apt/sources.list nor /etc/apt/sources.list.d. They are just as they were sent to me via Update Manager, with the exception, of course, of "jessie" replacing "stable" in dmo.list. I run Audicity on occasion so I prefer to leav...
