Re: Samsung printer

Is it possible the user double-clicked the driver file instead of running the script? That's what it looks like to me without actually making the file executable. The file should be checked to see if executable (can run a properties view from the file manager). If not executable, run from the Termin...

Re: HP OfficeJet 3830 All-in-One Printer series

The scanner will work without hplip printer manager if usb connected. . . OR . . . if you use the printer control window to scan to attached usb flash-stick. Also, you can use your browser to install Google Cloud Print as an additional print option . . . and don't forget "localhost:631" to use CUPS ...

Re: Touchpad Not Working At All?

What worked for my on my Acer Travelmate B117 was to: > enable the touchpad with Fn + F7 key (for this machine). That had absolutely zero effect initially until I rebooted, and then the system could "see" the touchpad and that it was in an up status (because it was reading from the "last state" log)...

Re: HP Laptop - Intel/Nvida Solus 3 Install?

Sunnyflunk . . . is it possible to add a kernel boot parameter like "nomodeset" on Solus to allow for installs of proprietary drivers? I know distros that by default use grub allow for that, but does Solus with it's unique boot loader (Clear Boot Manager) provide a similar option as a workaround?

Re: Application request

I believe the plan is to have snaps (and perhaps flatpaks and AppImages) in the official Solus software repo.

Re: I need a driver for Epsen wf-2630

How is the printer connected to the laptop? For first time driver installs, I've had best results for the initial printer setup , to connect via usb and not rely on wireless recognition as the default. Regarding CUPS, those are not printers you're looking at. Those are protocols and install options....

Re: Need help for a particular installation in Dual Boot

If you still have or can get a clean USB Flash-Stick of either 4 or 8 Gigs, then you should start fresh. Just place the downloaded iso into an empty folder in your /home or Windows download folder. Then download the "Etcher" program and install it. Etcher is the easiest to use program for creating b...

Re: I need a driver for Epsen wf-2630

Is there a reason why you posted this question twice on these forums? I know of no better way to confuse the issue.

Re: Need drivers for my Epsen wf-2630

None of those files (Fedora RPM, Suse RPM or Ubuntu DEB) will work in Solus. As my Epson Workforce 645 was recognized straightaway by Solus, I didn't have the issue you do now. So, I would try another approach first . . . using CUPS to search for and install a suitable driver. In your browser . . . ...

To reboot a non-responsive system, are these methods available?
