Re: Laptop "TUBA CineBass subwoofer" not working

Sorry - - didn't see this post till today. Did you bump up (increase) Master volume, unmute mic, and add volume to speaker? See youtube videos for simple tutorials on how to do (I can't recall - it's been years since I've messed with it but I think you just use the arrow keys to increase, decrease, ...

Re: Wifi ASUS USB-N13

OK . . . I'm not a networking expert, but I've read enough about that chipset being problematic on Linux. Best results from compiling driver, but then with frequent kernel updates, recompile may be needed. If you have about $10.00 you can spare, a much better solution (imho) is just to order from Am...

Re: Will I be able to get these programs / apps?

No, that's not what was said. The meaning is you have to make sure the proper apps are installed before you can use the standard Linux tools of "make" etc. to compile source code. Some distros "pre-include" those tools, others don't (as the average home Linux user rarely if ever needs to compile.) I...

Re: Wifi ASUS USB-N13

A helpful habit to get into when posting issues on any Linux Forum . . . is to provide key system information (both hardware and software). An easy program to do that is via "inxi". So, go to the software repo for Solus and install Inxi. Then run: inxi -Fx and post results. Note that there is a spac...

Re: How to make partion

Also, since you are new . . . it's often recommended to avoid "LVM" (Logical Volume Management) scheme when partitioning . Also, I suggest you do not do "disk encryption" . . . because if you run into a problem or issue . . . it's very hard to recover your data with the standard rescue tools. As sug...

Often there are several ways to enable printing in addition to Epson supplied drivers. " Use of CUPS and Samba Server, use of Google Cloud Print Services & IPP protocols.

Google . . . Cloud Print . . . Classic Printer . . . Check it out . . . .

Printer drivers not really needed anymore if using web services such as Google Cloud Print.

Re: Can't access internet

wow . . . long running thread. I am offering an "alternative" solution . . . an easy one (in my view). This doesn't solve the issue with your OEM wireless chipset, but there are usb wifi adapters that are known to be Linux friendly. I have a whole list of these . . . having tested at least a dozen d...

Re: Brother MFC Driver Install

Have you tried Google Cloud Print? I see they have a very close model supported MFC-J6700DW vs the 6720 . . . I would give that a try:
