You're running Ubuntu 10.10 ?

If that's the case you have much bigger security issues than just a firewall .. Ubuntu 10.10 reached end of life YEARS ago so hasn't been recieved any of the patches for recent security vulnerabilities.

You'd be MUCH better served installing something that's still supported, such as maybe Ubuntu MATE 18.04 .. then using gufw as your firewall.

Do you get the same message if you boot with the lines commented .. then uncomment them and run:

?

The 2200BG is a really old wireless adapter, maybe it simply doesn't like the wireless modes your router is using.

Maybe get one of these
https://linuxforums.org.uk/index.php?topic=13634.msg110608#msg110608
which are tiny so don't stick out of a laptop much .. they're also pretty cheap.

Is your router/network named BTHub3-7CWX ?

Are we still talking about Peppermint 9 64bit ?

If so run:
Code: [Select]
mkdir ~/ImageScan
then
Code: [Select]
cd ~/ImageScan
then
Code: [Select]
wget https://download2.ebz.epson.net/imagescanv3/ubuntu/lts1/deb/x64/imagescan-bundle-ubuntu-18.04-3.57.0.x64.deb.tar.gz
then
Code: [Select]
tar xvf imagescan-bundle-ubuntu-18.04-3.57.0.x64.deb.tar.gz
then
Code: [Select]
cd ~/ImageScan/imagescan-bundle-ubuntu-18.04-3.57.0.x64.deb
then
Code: [Select]
sudo ./install.sh
then look for "Image Scan" in the main menu .. probably at:-

Menu > Graphics > Image Scan



If Image Scan doesn't work, how is your printer/scanner attached to the PC ?

and if you MUST have 2.94 for some reason...

b) shouldn't that be

?

Are those specs any good for what exactly ?

BTW, Intel only released the i7-5500U in Q1 2015, so how is this a 2014 Powerbook ?
