    Deleting Live USB

    I didn't know gparted worked in Windows, I was thinking just right-click on the drive icon and choose "format"

    Deleting Live USB

    Thanks, by the way would formatting it in Windows instead of gparted do the same thing?

    If I delete a live linux OS from the usb pen drive will I be able to use it as a regular usb storage drive or is there some procedure I have to do to remove the OS and make the usb drive usable?

    Ah you're faster typing than me, ha, ha. Is there another option in the preferences Scan Source other than your printer name? If there is try that one.

    Epson Scanners XP-445 and SX-435W

    I know what you mean by the "few extra steps" needed in Linux, I'm a new Linux user too, it took me a few weeks of frustration to get full functionality on my printer. Hope you get it running the way you want.

    Epson Scanners XP-445 and SX-435W

    I just noticed that in a post you said you got the scanner to work with Imagescan but not Simplescan, have you tried going to "preferences" in Simplescan and then changing the "Scan Source"? That's what I did to get Simplescan to work.

    Epson Scanners XP-445 and SX-435W

    That is very weird, where are you getting the PDF Japanese file from? It's certainly not the link I posted. Did you download the driver from this page - http://support.epson.net/linux/en/imagescanv3.php Once you download the version for your Linux distro you can click on the downloaded file and...

    Epson Scanners XP-445 and SX-435W

    I don't understand why you are seeing Japanese, I just tried the link in my post and it goes to Epson's download page in English not Japanese. Here are Epson's instructions on how to install the driver: http://download.ebz.epson.net/man/linux/imagescanv3_e.html#sec6-1

    Epson Scanners XP-445 and SX-435W

    Scanner Not Detected

    I downloaded the scanner driver from Epson and I was able to scan with Epson's Imagescan. After the download Simple Scan detected the scanner but would still not scan. I searched the web looking for info on how to get Simple Scan working but without success. I poked around the "Preferences" in...

    Scanner Not Detected

    Not yet, I'm confused as to what I need to download. The printer is printing so I would only need to download the scanner driver?

    Scanner Not Detected

    I have an Epson xp printer/scanner, the printer prints but when I tried to scan with "Simple Scan" it says scanner is not detected. How do I get the scanner to work? The printer/scanner is connected by usb cable to a eeepc netbook with MInt 18.1

    Command Question

    Thanks much, I'm glad I looked around before attempting the first fix I came across.

    Command Question

    Thanks, I solved my problem with this command: sudo chown -R vnstat:vnstat /var/lib/vnstat Is it safer? I got it from the unbuntu website. I think it means that ownership of the file has been switched to vnstat, so now it's able to write to the file and display bandwidth use.

    Command Question

    Thanks for that info. So would you say it's safe to try that command out and see if it solves my problem? I got it from https://aspratyush.wordpress.com/tag/vnstat-not-enough-data-available-yet/

    Command Question

    What does $ sudo chmod a+rw -R /var/lib/vnstat/* do? I came across it while trying to figure out how to get vnstat to record bandwidth usage for my broadband connection. Since yesterday it keeps telling me "Not enough data available yet". I think for some reason it's not writing the bandwidth to...

    Vnstat Bandwidth Monitor

    Can anyone tell me how I can get Vnstat to detect and record my broadband bandwidth usage? It detects and records my wifi but not the broadband, I don't know why.

    Best distribution for netbook?

    I installed not to long ago linuxmint 18.1 xfce on my eeepc with 1g of ram and I'm happy with it. It's not super fast but it's not a turtle either.

    Saving Snapshots

    Thanks Don't know what you mean by "how do I plan to access the snapshots if I need to restore from the stick"? Wouldn't it be by accessing the stick? I haven't used or installed Timeshift yet, have only been reading about it, is there something I'm missing?
