Hi PacRat,
I did an upgrade a couple of days ago and if I remember correctly the kernel is 5.19.something but I'll check tomorrow.
I have a fenvi card and according to VastOne  the driver is inbuilt. My router is provided by SKY and I don't know if I can access it. I'll  try to get the wired network working tomorrow and see how it goes.

Hi PackRat
All i get from ip addr is ( 1 ) lo and ( 2 ) enp3s15.
I've been reading up on ceni but not understanding it all as it mention scan but doesn't appear in ceni when i run it does that mean that I have to install a different version or something else

Ok Folks
I have myself the wifi card from fenvi which is installed but noy working. What else do you expect from me. The worst part is neither is my hardwired working either. Something has changed enp2s15 to enp3s15 and i can't locate where to change it back. As far as he wifi side of things go i have been doing loads of searching on the net and located loads of how to's but none of them seem to apply to our version of debian. A lot of the commands they say to use don't work on this version and i haven't managed to find any  site that has all of the commands that work. Lspci does find the card and i have tried to alter the sbin/network/interface by adding iface wlan0 inet dhcp or iface wifi inet dhcp and wpa_sub ? and .... sky..... + password which didn't work either. Will have a otherbash at trying again tomorrow. Ceni doesn't seem to find it by itself. Can i install wicd as it seemed to work previously?

Hi VastOne,

Thanks for the reply and info.
I did try to find  out if it was in the distro but didn't realize that it was already built it in so now I can go ahead and buy it Cheers  :) :)

Hi PackRat

Thanks for the clarification

As far as I  can see I'm going to have to  buy a wireless card as i can't find any mention of wireless in the online manual or for that matter Bluetooth but i have a Bluetooth adapter so that's working anyway

Hi PackRat,

At the moment my PC is hardwired to the router.
The system info says that my Ethernet controller is a
Realtek Semiconductor Co., LTD RTL-8110SC/8169SC Gigabit Ethernet (rev 10)
I assume that is what you mean

Hi PackRat,

Yes e printer itself works via usb  but not the scanner part which is one of the reasons I am trying to get it working wireless to see if it works then.
Ceni can,t find any wireless connection either.
is there some firmware that i need to download from the repositories ?

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

Hi PackRat

The Debian forum is a waste of time. I don't remember joining them before but I must have done so but now i can't remember my password and every time i try to request a reminder / reset email they tell me the username and email address are invalid yet if i try and register with them they tell me that they are already in use so I have no way of getting on or telling them that they have a problem.
Anyway thanks for the help but still no luck I'm afraid

Hi VastOne

Thanks for the reply and info. Sorry that I haven't answered before now but been very busy with doing a cross stitch dragon that I have been doing for about 4 years now and have nearly finished at last. Anyway
I have installed gnome-themes-standard but xsane still can't find the scanner part of the printer. I'll try reinstalling the drivers again now that i have installed what you said and see if that makes any difference  :)

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.  :(
