Printing and Scanning / [ SOLVED ] What scanning software do you use?
« Last post by Jacob Pertou on September 21, 2021, 04:00:43 PM »
Simple-scan is acting up, so I'm thinking about trying a different application. What is the best, most reliable, in your opinion? working again. I did a system recovery.

Español [Spanish] / [ HELPFUL TIP ] Desasociar archivo .run
« Last post by LuisGerita on September 21, 2021, 12:22:01 PM »
Antes que nada aclaro que tengo unas dos semanas usando Linux Lite, el problema que me surgio es que instale XAMPP y despues de instalarlo ejecute el manage-linux-x64.run para abrir la consola, hasta aqui todo bien, luego puse un acceso directo de la ubicacion del archivo en el escritorio y cuando intente abrirlo me pidio "abrir con" como supuse que era un programa, le puse <<ejecutar programa>> pero no funcionó, no me abre la consola de administracion de XAMPP.
Supongo yo que si elimino esas "asociaciones" mi consola nuevamente se abrira sin problema.
Me pueden ayudar para "desasociar" o quitar el Abrir con <<ejecutar programa >> o Abrir con <<Install/Remove Software>>

Intente poner una imagen con el ejemplo, pero creo que el foro no lo admite

Muchas gracias por su ayuda

Suggestions and Feedback / Installing Lite 5.6 on a Lenovo Thinkcentre
« Last post by number6 on September 21, 2021, 05:28:53 AM »
I've been using Linux as main Operating System for more than 20 years.
In past years, I gave Gnome, Kde Plasma, Mate a try but in the end I always revert back to Xfce
due to simplicity, stability. 
Lately I tried Xubuntu 20.04 but I found it disappointing (bugs, slowness) - if you want to use Kde use either Kde Neon or
Manjaro Kde Plasma- so you get an updated version of Kde. Find below my (raw) feedback. I hope it can be of interest. :003:


Installation of Lite 5.6 went smooth - no issue to report (I created a /home partition before installation)

I missed some applications which were not installed by default. I'm not fond of snap and I tried to add them
through apt & Lite Software (Chromim)  but had to add extra PPAs and even AppImage sofware : 
- Extra PPA :  signal (Messaging)  - instructions on  https://signal.org/download/linux/
- Exra PPA : virtualbox (so I can get the most recent version) - instructions https://linuxhint.com/install-virtualbox-linux/ as I need a Windows 10 VM from time to time.
- Extra DEB : yacreader  (a great comics reader) -  https://yacreader.com/downloads
- Extra packages : chromium (always good to have two browsers), audacious (for music), featherpad (to edit text), neofetch, keepassxc, firejail, opensssh-server, dnscrypt, qbittorrent, youtube-dl
I often have to  find duplicate files on disks  and edit (cut, extract) videos on my system. The best software for these tasks I found are :
Losslesscut (VidCutter stopped working) &  czkawka (fslint no longer works/no longer as package). Unfortunately they are not available through deb, PPA but as AppImages.
So I added AppImageLauncher - https://itsfoss.com/use-appimage-linux/ and downloaded the AppImages on
https://github.com/mifi/lossless-cut/releases/ and  https://github.com/qarmin/czkawka/releases/
The youtube-dl package is old (on Kubuntu I had a more recent version through snap) - I had to download the most recent binary version on
the official website - in the past there were extra PPAs but it seems there are gone.

Mousepad has no auto-save feature so you can loose files if your system hangs or face a power issue and don't save on frequent basis. I therefore had to install Featherpad
Vlc is installed by default but I prefer audacious to play music- it's lightweight. 

I replaced ntp by chrony : ntpd listens on network interfaces (not just loopback), chrony does not and is way more modern.
I unistalled samba (also listening on network interface) - I don't want other systems to use my workstation as a Windows server/storage
For ad-blocking on browsers I use Ublock Origin. DO NOT USE the webext-ublock-origin  package, it does not block. Download the version through Mozilla
& Chrome stores.

Tweaks I did :
- I added the Xfce weather applet to the panel
- I found the fonts way too big by default  for terminal and Desktop - I have an external screen
- Configure terminal for F12 xfce-terminal drop down - Yakuake like https://averagelinuxuser.com/xfce-drop-down-terminal/
- Speed up / mounting add noatime in /etc/fstab

Bugs I faced :
- Network printer (Brother) configuration failing. I was not able to add my printer (no issue on Manjaro)
Cups errors :
E [20/Sep/2021:18:58:25 +0200] [Client 16] Returning IPP server-error-internal-error for CUPS-Add-Modify-Printer (ipp://localhost/printers/ImprimanteBrother) from localhost.
E [20/Sep/2021:18:58:32 +0200] [CGI] Unable to create PPD file: Could not poll sufficient capability info from the printer (ipp://Brother%20HL-L2350DW%20series._ipp._tcp.local/, ipp://BRW4CEBBD48F800.local:631/ipp/print) via IPP!
CLI command :

ERROR: Unable to create PPD file: Could not poll sufficient capability info from the printer (ipp://Brother%20HL-L2350DW%20series._ipp._tcp.local/, ipp://BRW4CEBBD48F800.local:631/ipp/print) via IPP!
This is due to .local (multicast) resolution not working.
Package libnss-mdns  was not installed.  In addition /etc/nsswitch.conf needed some fixing :
hosts:          files mdns4_minimal [NOTFOUND=return] dns mdns4
instead of
hosts:          files dns
- Wrong gif association (Firefox) - should be ImageViewer - blame it on Ubuntu
- A few French translation issues (mousepad, Xfce Menu) - but it's not Lite's fault
- Some Apparmor errors - again Ubuntu's fault :
Apparmor errors : apparmor="DENIED" operation="open" profile="/usr/bin/evince-thumbnailer" name="/tmp/tumbler-X70EP90.png"
Need to add to /etc/apparmor.d/usr.bin.evince : owner /tmp/evince-thumbnailer*/{,**} rw,
There are others errors for cups...


In a few words, Lite performs very well. I don't have any major issue. I'm satisfied. i'll keep it . :045: :045: :045:
It's stable :048:. I'm longing for the version based on Ubuntu 22.04 LTS - but I will wait several months after the release to give it a try and compare it to Linux Voyager - also based on Xubuntu
which is a bit more polished (font size/selection, desktop backgrounds, applications by default) but consumes way more resources.



What's next ?
Adding a more recent libreoffice version  (7.2.1) - https://www.libreoffice.org/download/appimage/ for improved Office compatibility
Adding extra software (gthumbs for photos collection sorting, mpd and ymuse - https://github.com/yktoo/ymuse for playing my MP3 collection, qemu to test Linux ISOs : qemu-system-x86_64 -M pc -vga std  -enable-kvm -cpu host -m 4096 -hda  isofile)
Add a more recent kernel package (5.14 ?) - not sure if I should see some performances improvement and this is really worth the effort
Install Variety to change desktop pictures automatically
Install goodvibes (lightweight internet radio player ) - which also requires   gstreamer1.0-plugins-ugly gstreamer1.0-pulseaudio so far not needed

Printing and Scanning / Re: installed Brother MFC-J497DW but won't print
« Last post by b930306625 on September 19, 2021, 06:36:44 PM »
This is a strange one. I have a Brother MFC-990CW networked printer that is 10 years old but has been working just fine this entire time using the manufacturer's stock software package. All of a sudden after a Windows Update, it now no longer prints. I will send a print job, it spools up in the que and says print job is transmitted, but nothing happens in the printer. After much digging around, it seems the only way I can get the network printer to work is by adding the printer manually through the network such that it uses the default generic Windows print drivers. This method means that printing goes through the "WSD" port instead of the standard TCP/IP port.
