Printers and Scanners / Re: Canon Pixma Tr8550 printer

The program ScanGear MP2 installs the printer driver, so you only need to run it once, which is probably why it doesn't get put it in the menu. The link given by Rich seems to tell you all you need to install the printer.

Rich's suggestion might be the simplest method unless scangearmp2 provides something fancy that you need - I'm  not familiar with it.

It's not unheard of for installed s/w to be absent from the menus: an example is Imagemagick.  You can probably launch scangearmp2 by typing that name into a terminal, which might be quicker than launching from the Software Manager if that turns out to be your only method.

Printers and Scanners / Re: Canon Pixma Tr8550 printer
« Last Post by Rich J on Yesterday at 09:11:18 am »
I am new to Linux Forum and using Linux Mint 19.3 Cinnamon and have just installed a Canon Pixma TR8550 printer. I have installed Scangearmp2 from Software Manager and launched it. However it doesn't appear in the Graphics list. I find I have to launch it by opening Software Manager then Graphics and type in scangearmp2 in the question block. This opens the install block and from there I launch the scangearmp2 successfully see attachment. Is there any simpler way to do this?


Hi, and welcome to the forum.

I've not used Canon Printers so have no direct knowledge but printing /scanning issues in general can be problematic.  This is not a fault with Linux, more that the manufacturers do not always provide Linux compatible drivers for all of their products.  That said, look here -

http://ubuntuhandbook.org/index.php/2020/05/canon-printer-scangear-mp-ubuntu-20-04/

to see if that helps?  Alternativey, if all you need to do is scan - in Mint, go to Menu/Graphics/Simple Scan and see if that works.  And make sure your printer is switched on when you open the app.  ;)

Hi - and welcome to the Forum.

I'm not aware of a Forum dedicated to Minecraft on Linux, but I suggest that you join the Minecraft Forum and ask there.
This link (https://www.minecraftforum.net/forums/minecraft-java-edition/discussion/181459-how-to-install-minecraft-basic-modding-on-linux) shows that their forum is Linux aware so it's your best bet, I think. 

We've had only eight posts since 2012 relating to Minecraft, so not much interest here it seems.

I had the impression when I joined that there was a Minecraft forum for Linux (Ubuntu)

I cannot find it, so, is there one?

hi all, new to ubuntu ,just trying to listen to amazon music,wont play, tried updating firefox but still no joy,thanks for any help

Hi, and welcome to the forum. 

Which version of Ubuntu are you running and is this your first try-out with Linux? 

To find your version, enter this into Terminal - (Ctrl+Alt+T keyboard shortcut or by clicking on the terminal icon) -
Code: [Select]
hostnamectl
and post the output.

Do you mean that all your files are present but their names have been changed? 
And what operating system do you have on your computer?

Devjava,

You might try using TestDisk recovery software which is free.  Look at https://www.tecmint.com/recover-deleted-files-using-testdisk-in-linux/ for downloading and using it. 

In desperation, you could use a professional company such as fieldsdatarecovery.  It might not be expensive and their URL is:
 https://fieldsdatarecovery.co.uk/?msclkid=5b16005e877017bff6985fe115e223f2&utm_source=bing&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=UK%20FDR%20Phrase&utm_term=recover%20data&utm_content=Recover%20Data

I hope it helps you.  I've not tried either method, so can't advise on the detail.
