Another reason I'm giving up on linux. My scanner, which I've used for 3 years under various updates of Ubuntu, is a brick now. Two days of working on it and I'm still getting "scanner busy" or "invalid argument" messages. Scrivener, which used to work under ubuntu, fails now. Tried Linux Mint 15; nothing works. Printer works barely. Used to be that linux in general and Ubuntu in particular worked flawlessly, well almost, with everything and was far easier to set up than windows. Not anymore. I've had it, I quit, I'm surrendering and buying a Mac.
