General Help & Advice / Unable to use scanner while using a VPN
« on: October 31, 2017, 12:15:42 am »
I'm using ExpressVPN and while connected I am unable to connect to the scanner.
I've contacted ExpressVPN and they said to go to a Linux forum (so much for customer support eh!)

General Help & Advice / Xsane & Epson Printers
« on: October 21, 2017, 04:51:57 pm »
Just wondering, is there anyone out there with an Epson all-in-one.
I an having problems scanning documents.
What is happening is, the scanned result is coming out with the white paper darker than the original, where there should be no colour. I've tried changing the settings but I'm getting nowhere and the 'preview' button changes the settings, yet even those settings are producing a rubbish result.

I never had this problem with HP printers, but I don't want to go back to HP as I have 2 Eco-Tanks and as anyone else knows, who's got one, you save a packet on not buying cartridges.

Has anyone with an Epson managed to get the settings in Xsane right, so that it scans as an almost exact copy of the original.

No, as I didn't know about that or where to look as I since using 16.04 I'm lost, But now I've changed the settings.

Sorry, I've got mixed up there, I changed 16.04's settings and not 14.04. I'll just use Teamviewer to change them on 14.04.

I'll have to remove the automount settings for one of the drives as it's power (plug) has failed, before I can try a reboot.

Thanks

Understandable, I can't see you sitting at the PC all day answerin questions on here.
I tried the commands and I still had to enter my password at boot.

I need to set my desktop PC to boot without needing to enter my password as I am mainly on my laptop and use teamviewer to access my desktop PC.

I never even knew there were any free VPN's.
I can try connecting to my other PC while not connected through the VPN.

Does it also matter if I'm doing it through the VPN?

Just had a thought, I've named the desktop & laptop the same (pooky2483), could that cause any problems?

My problem is I don't know Dolphin....

In the dolphin address bar of the remote PC, type:
Code: [Select]
fish://username@server_IP
and hit enter.

Where:-
username = a user account on the server
sever_IP = the IP address of the server

try this on your local network and tell me if you're able to browser the files.

if not, try
Code: [Select]
sftp://username@server_IP/



BTW, you will need to have openssh-server installed on the server.
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install openssh-server

I just get 'timeout' from both

I've managed to install exfat.
Earlier today, I had checked Synaptic package manager and it showed that it was installed, I just looked again and it was actually NOT installed.
