Hi Mark,
I have tried to use this printer today and get 'funny' results.
I logged on to the computer and and switched the printer on, I tried to print a 1k .jpg and nothing happened.
I checked the print queue status and it said it was 'compiling' or something, I don't really know as I am getting pretty turned off with this.
I will give it up for the day
EDIT I have closed down the printer access and am sitting on the computer home page, I plug in the USB to the printer and it prints the page I was asking for ???

Hi Mark,
a) It works connected via USB

b) I have 2 printers listed,
the Brother MFC-J5910DW A3 printer that works wirelessly with both the Win 10 computer and this Pep 9 computer,
and this Epson XP-355 that works wirelessly with the Win 10 computer but only works via the USB cable with this Pep 9 computer.
The status of both printers is 'idle'
The Brother printer is set as 'Default' but I change that when I want to use the Epson.

There is nothing in the print queue and there is a history  page with what has been printed/cancelled.

When I plugged the USB cable in this morning and switched the printer on,the printer screen lit up and asked me to accept the defaults (as usual) it then printed part of what looks like the start of the Ubuntu Test Page, it only printed the top horizontal line and about 1 1/2" of the vertical border line before spitting it out

Thanks Mark,
I carried out your suggestions as above. When complete I asked for the Network Connection Report and it printed it out, everything passed and the signal strength was Excellent. I then chose 'Print Test Page' but the printer then hangs and I have to shut it down and restart. The printer hangs with a 'Processing'.
I am at a loss here to what is happening I hope you have some ideas ??

Hi Mark,
I have replaced 3 of the 4 cartridges in the printer with genuine Epson cartridges (the Yellow still has some ink in it).
I printed the Ubuntu self test page and it looks OK. The driver is given as drvless.ppd and the version as 1.20.2.
I ran the network connection check from the printer and it connected ok and I have printed the details and saved them.
I went into 'Text Editor' and typed a line of text and asked it to print. Nothing happens, when I go to Printers>localhost and select the Epson> properties there is a line  that reads 'Printer State' and it says "Idle - Print job cancelled at printer".
Any ideas

Hi Mark,
I have just replaced the cartridges in the printer but will need to wait until Monday to try it as my Grandson is here for the weekend.
I did try but got some sort of message about ' printing was stopped at the printer'. I will see what happens in the morning.

Yes Mark. I am sure it is Peppermint 9 64 bit.

Can anyone help ?? Any ideas about how to get this sorted ?? Please

Hi Mark,
I have lost the Epson printer from my system ??
I can scan from the computer using 'Simple Scan' connected via USB cable.
I have the printer setup (I think), and I have checked the Network Connection using the printer and have printed the results and they all Pass, but it does not appear in the list of printers.
Could you help again please ??

Hi Mark,
I have this printer set up now using USB. I can print, scan etc. without problem.
I also have it set up to print wirelessly so I can print from the workshop but I still have to come in and retrieve the printout  ;) ;)
Thanks again

Yes Mark  ;D ;D
That has solved my problem, thanks.
I can now dump the files/folders on to the external drive.
Thanks again

Thanks Mark,
I have reinstalled all the folders on my new Pep 9  setup that I want and the external drive is clean.
I would like to split the external drive into 2 with one half as ntfs for my Win 10 stuff and the other half as Ext 4 for my Linux stuff. Could you guide me through the process ?? please.
I have the drive split as
/dev/sdb1    ntfs    976.22 GiB    boot
unallocated           886.86 GiB

Sorry for the trouble Mark.  :-[ I have formatted the drive as one single ntfs drive.
I have moved what I want from the Peppermint 7 system I have on my computer onto this external drive.
I have installed Peppermint 9 on my computer and am now in the process of putting the folders etc. from the external drive back to the new Pep 9 setup.
I have managed to set up the 2 printers, a Brother MFC-J591ODW and an Epson Expression Home XP-355, with the WiFi connection.
I have connected to all 3 of my email accounts and they are all working but I was wondering if I should use Thunderbird to keep all the accounts under the same umbrella, so to speak. ??
I have reset my logins for various sites, including this one as you can see.
I would like to keep the computer as free of all my wood working programmes, Inkscape, Gimp etc. and there are loads of sketches/pictures associated with these as well, so I would like to run them from the external drive if I can.
So I really need an external drive split in 2 with ntfs and Ext4 partitions as I would like to keep Win 10 stuff  and Peppermint stuff in separate places. Can you help with that ??
PS I have used those commands and get this

Hi Mark,
I have connected this external drive and used Gparted. The top right hand box lets me select/dev/sda (465.76 GB) or /dev/sdb (1.82 TB).
When I select /dev/sdb/ the screen shows 2 boxes, /dev/sdb1  (928.96GiB) and /dev/sdb2 (924.06 GiB) beneath that is 2 lines saying
Partition       File System                   Size                            Used                 Unused             Flags
/dev/sdb1      ntfs                          938.96 GiB                     93.79 MiB          938.87GiB         boot
/dev/sdb2      ext4                         924.06 GiB                     14.07 GiB          909.36 GiB

My problem is I can only access /dev/sdb1. I can access this using Linux and Win 10.
When I try to access the ext4 formatted /dev/sdb2 I get an error message. 'You don't have permission to access this folder ?'
When I use the 'Properties'  > Permissions it has the owner as 'Root' and at the bottom says 'You are not the owner, so you cannot change these permissions'

Can you tell me where I have went wrong and help me rectify it ?? please.

Don W
PS Can I apply to be a Beta tester for the next Peppermint ?? I seem to be the original 'Murphy' (as in 'Murphy's Law) :-[ :-[
