General Support / Wireless Printer
« on: January 09, 2021, 04:19:11 PM »
Hi folks
Still struggling with my printer and been doing loads of reading.
There in no wireless extension on enp2s15 and I have been trying to find out how to add one with no luck. my card is a Realtek RTL-8110SC/8169SC Gigabit Ethernet GA-MA69G-S3H.
The only thing I have managed to find so far is various people recommending removing the driver r6189 saying that it worked and it then appeared in " nmcli ".
My question Is that the best thing to do and if it doesn't work will I be able to reinstall it.
I have just updated to the latest kernel and done the latest update, read all the info and as usual have no idea what is being talked about  :D  :D
again help is required please and thank you

General Support / ET-2750 series printer / scanner
« on: November 19, 2020, 01:05:55 PM »
Hi Folks

I have been trying for some time to install the scanner part of the above printer series.
I have downloaded and tried to install the drivers that Epson  list and have had no success at all so far. As far as I am aware the drivers have been installed, well according to gdebi, but sane xsane say that they can't locate the scanner, not detected, and I have no idea where to go from here. I have run sane-find-scanner and that came up with libusb:001:002 but it is not certain that is correct or something like that. Running xsane in root terminal i get
Code: [Select]
Unable to locate theme engine in module_path: "adwaita"
I have no idea what else there is that I can try help required please.  :(

I have tried restart and reload fluxbox but with no success. I have been looking around but can't find out where it is or how to correct it  :( help needed please  :)

General Support / Way over my head
« on: July 02, 2020, 02:22:49 PM »
Hi folks
Its all way above me this. I had broken symlink files which i have after reading loads deleted them all. That leaves me with thousands of " missing-copyright-files ". I have spent ages reading pages of stuff on the net but can't find anywhere that tells me how to reinstall them, at least nothing that i understand, so would appreciate some help / advice on what i should do about them. This all stems from trying to install my all in one ET-2750 scanner driver. ( still not installed ) the printer itself is working. I also have loads of "  undefined-symbol " errors and loads of other stuff too. I guess the only thing to do is a complete reinstall

General Support / adequate
« on: June 30, 2020, 05:54:38 PM »
Hi Folks

Well I installed adequate the other day as i found out the it told you about problems on your PC, Which it did. It told me that were were over 2400 errors / problems
but they scrolled past so fast that i could read them and i have no idea where it has stored them, I assumed that it does keep them somewhere, and i can't find the file / folder.
I did notice that it said there were broken file / symlinks which I need to fix but I can't get it to list just the broken files. I did try " adequate --all -deconf " but that didn't have them in it either.
so again I have no idea what to do and although I looked on debian site all I could find was a list of the things if checked. looking through the code I did see the list that it runs. Can I just hash out the ones that i don't want at the moment or will that cause havoc

General Support / driving me crazy
« on: June 23, 2020, 04:20:25 PM »
Hi Folks

back again trying to fix find broken held packages.
so far I have tried

dpkg --get- selection | grep hold and it returns nothing
apt-get --fix-missing update which told me there were 9 upgradable items which I have done. yet when I run ./install.sh it still keeps telling me that

Code: [Select]
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 libgcc1 : Depends: gcc-10-base (= 10.1.0-1) but 10.1.0-4 is to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

is there anything else that i can do as i have repeatedly tried the above commands

Edit

Since correcting my sources.list the error message has changed to

Code: [Select]
Package libboost-program-options1.67.0 is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source

E: Package 'libboost-filesystem1.67.0' has no installation candidate
E: Package 'libboost-program-options1.67.0' has no installation candidate
E: Package 'libboost-system1.67.0' has no installation candidate


Forgot I have also used apt-get update --fix-missing , apt-get install -f, dpkg --configure -a

General Support / A Couple of Problems
« on: June 22, 2020, 06:28:17 PM »
Hi Folks
A couple of new problems that have me baffled ( no surprise there  :-[ )
1 i've downloaded synaptic and can only run it from the command line and I keep getting this warning

Code: [Select]
synaptic:11621): Gtk-WARNING **: 19:01:39.936: Theme parsing error: gtk.css:4348:56: Using one color stop with linear-gradient() is deprecated

and the other one is to do with synaptic itself.
I am trying to install an Epson package to run the scanner and I keep getting
Code: [Select]
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 libgcc1 : Depends: gcc-10-base (= 10.1.0-1) but 10.1.0-4 is to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.


and when I go onto synaptic to fix broken packages it doesn't seem to do anything and i can't work out which packages are broken. how do i find and fix broken packages
Where do I go from here please

General Support / xsane [ Abandond }
« on: May 13, 2020, 02:35:15 PM »
Hi Folks

in dire need of your assistance. I have been trying for days now to get xsane to run correctly with no success. I have been doing a lot of reading but not been able to figure it out.
I have installed " Argyll icc profiles, Gnome color manager " and purged and reinstalled xsane and sane several times and also looked for other scanner drivers all to no avail.
I have also updated VSIDO.
Sorry forgot to add the error messages.
Error during cms conversion
Error could not open scanner icm profile
Error could not create transform.
I think there was one other to do with icc but can't remember
any help please  :( :(
