My Dad's just switched to Ubuntu on his main computer. The printer is active on network and is connected to his main computer by USB. None of the computer will recognize it, whether it be on the network or from USB.
My brother recently decided to build a computer, but I had the privilege to put it together and to download Ubuntu. I created a bootable drive, on my Mac, using the 64 bit version of Ubuntu. When that didn't work, I used the 32 bit version, again with no luck. When I start my computer, I am given the options to try Ubuntu, or to download it.
I have an odd problem after upgrading to 14.04. I used to use the simple scan program that came with Ubuntu without issue (it was actually quite 'simple' to use). However, after the upgrade it can't properly scan an image. Everything I try to scan comes out super-bright, washed out, and unreadable. No amount of messing with settings fixed the problem.
I have a HP Officejet Pro 8620 printer and I am trying to setup network scan with it but the hp-setup tool claims it cannot find the printer. However the printer is connected to the network and I can already print with it from the same Ubuntu computer.
I have setup the machine with wifi only (no USB or ethernet).
I am using ubuntu 11.10 for last 2 or 3 days.
I like it. Now problem is that, When I installed my printer HP F2180 on ubuntu. It prints very well in ubuntu.but, I cannot scan any type of document through this printer in ubuntu.While in my other windows PC, The printer works very well. It prints good and also scan very well.
i took my old computer (amd 5600+, 2gb ram, 880gt, 250gb sata etc etc) and decided to jump and try ubuntu for the first time. i have very VERY little knowledge (red hat when i was younger) with linux in general.
my main desktop is windows 7 and my plan is to use the ubuntu computer as a file server sort of speak.
