Just wanted to introduce myself
« on: December 16, 2014, 05:03:03 pm »
Hi,
 Just wanted to Briefly say Hello.  Also I am running Peppermint 3,  and need quite a lot of assistance due to a Stroke(CVA) some months ago.
I can grasp most things, "keeping it in my Head long enough is the problem." >:(

Thanks Guy,s for your very warm welcome  :P----
-VinDSL, PCNetspec,emegra, and AndyInMokum.

Can I please ask, I have a Canon Pixma Printer the model is MG4250.   I would like to get it up and running if possible, could one of you guy,s help me to get the required commands to input into Peppermint 3.
This is the only distro I have at Present bought it before I had my stroke,Q (Is this distro safe to use for now, As I believe you have moved away from Google this being my mail server).? Also I would dearly like to change onto Peppermint 5 soon.
Thank you all for your kind help.
Regards
eddie.

There's a tutorial here:
https://robert.penz.name/532/a-howto-for-using-a-canon-pixma-mg4250-under-ubuntu/
it's for Ubuntu 12.04, but Pepermint 3 is based on Ubuntu 12.04

Any problems please post the question in the hardware forum with a descriptive title such as

Code: [Select]
Help installing Canon MG4260 in Peppermint 3

So future searchers will be able to easily find any posted solution .. thanks in  advance.

eddie could you please start a new thread for any new issues you want help with, this is an introductory thread,

Starting a new thread for each subject you want help with keeps things neat and tidy and helps other users search for and find solutions

No problem eddie

I would suggest your question regarding the Software Manager would be better placed in the Software & Applications section, and the Hardware section for your printer query


Good luck
