Re: Epson WF-7720O

I haven't had access to my Solus laptop in a few days . . . so, I couldn't confirm the repo drivers availability. But I trust Kyrios has the right info and that is the method I would use to do the install. Then after that, see if the program "Simple Scan" is available. If it is, install it and give ...

Re: Epson WF-7720

One option is to build the driver manually by downloading the source (src) rpm at the Epson website (see reply from Kyrios for link). Then follow these instructions: 6.3 For other distributions 6.3.1 Uncompress the src.rpm file $ rpm2cpio epson-inkjet-printer-escpr-1.6.23-1lsb3.2.src.rpm | cpio -id ...

Re: Epson WF-7720

On most newer printers (especially of last 5 years or so) . . . scanning can be done with the PC turned off. The scanner is controlled via the touch-screen or printer buttons. Look for something that says "scan to usb" - - so, often no drivers or programs actually needed.

After applying the update, did you try to uninstall and reinstall the printer?

Re: Laptop battery not charging while Solus is running

Why yes . . . . yes it could be a damaged battery.

If you don't have the program "inxi" installed, get it from the Solus repos and run,

inxi -Fx

If your mobo supports verbose power output - you'll see a paragraph about your battery and to what degree it is capable of reaching full capacity.

Re: Budgie desktop wiped out and replaced by gnome after first updat

Hmm . . .never heard of that one. Best to make sure the iso was for Budgie DE versuse Gnome. Solus has 3 DE's (b;udgie, gnome and mate). Run the live iso (demo the system) and then while in the live session, look for the installer link. Note you will by default get a lot of gnome components with Bud...

Re: 7zip Capability to Encrypt/Decrypt . . . Not Enabled in Solus?

Thanks Kyrios . . . , The link to AskUbuntu was very helpful. I did have p7zip installed, but that gui did not include the option for adding a password (neither does Ubuntu from 17.10 to present). So, now, the method has changed. The folder or file has to be cut/paste to the Archive program window (...

7zip Capability to Encrypt/Decrypt . . . Not Enabled in Solus?

I use a couple encryption methods and tools in linux. One is the simple way the compression program 7zip offers the user a way to encrypt a directory tree or a single file. This is very handy and doesn't require creating vaults and mounting, etc. Is there a way to get this capability in Solus (an op...

Re: unable to use wifi

Realtek wifi can be "real" problematic. Vendor largely ignores Linux. For about $12-25 or abouts (on Amazon, Egghead, etc.), it's possible to get a usb wireless adapter that is Linux friendly. Panda makes several dongles and usb-wifi sticks that work out of the box: http://www.pandawireless.com/
