  6. [ubuntu] Re: Upgraded to 11.04, did some Compiz stuff, now I have no toolbars

    Hmmm.... Nvidia or ATI(AMD) or Intel graphics?

    I have found that making -any- changes to Compiz settings from the initial default Unity ones tends to FUBAR the desktop. (For fun try turning off...
  7. [other] Re: Old Versions of VueScan (9.0.12 in particular)

    Is it the 32 or 64 bit version that you want/need?
  8. [ubuntu] Re: Scanner software supporting Digital Ice (Epson v600)

    In a word 'yes'. Vuescan is the only scanning software for Linux that supports Digital ICE (it is called Infrared in the program).

    [ubuntu] Re: Epson 4180 not working in Ubuntu 9.10

    Have you tried running scanimage -L as root? In other words, sudo scanimage -L. If running it as root works, then you probably have a permissions problem. I have an Epson 4490 that worked fine in...
