    All in Ones - Brother and Canon

    Should I switch to Grub Bootloader during Start Up when loading Linux? I've always connected to the standard (top, first option), but am wondering if the Grub Bootloader would resolve the intermittent, but regular freezing that I experience with MX Linux 21. I'm just trying to narrow down as...

    All in Ones - Brother and Canon

    I'll eventually be using Linux full time, but when I do use MX Linux 21, I'm running into some puzzling technical problems that didn't exist in MX Linux 17.1. It could be my USB stick - it's a Philips (I think 32 GB) stick. If it is, hopefully the contents of MX Linux 21 can be copied to a...

    All in Ones - Brother and Canon

    That error message I scanned and uploaded must be intermittent, as when I retried the Scan function, the error message didn't appear, and the Canon scanner installed perfectly, and like with printouts, I did a Scan test and the document also printed perfectly.

    All in Ones - Brother and Canon

    New Update: Good News and Bad News:- Persistence doesn't Save, so I have to re-apply multiple settings every time I start up Linux; Canon - Complete success with the Printing - I've just done a two small paragraph test and it works perfectly :); The Scanning has run into a problem. Should I...

    All in Ones - Brother and Canon

    By luck, as I'm new to this, I eventually found the Terminal after initially not being able to link to it from the previous command, and the command registered successfully (I'm not used to screenshots, so the window is a little off centre, but you'll get the general idea from the photo), but...

    All in Ones - Brother and Canon

    I've tried to follow your instructions, but am still struggling, as nothing links to the Terminal so I can't type in the Printing and Scanning commands. I've also found that my USB cable at one end has a different fitting at the other end - which doesn't seem to fit, despite turning the thin...

    All in Ones - Brother and Canon

    I tried printing with the Canon, but nothing is happening, as it clearly needs a USB cable or Wireless, both of which I have, and also a Smartphone is an option, but I don't know if a Smartphone works with Linux, as this is all new to me. Even then, despite downloading those files you quoted...

    All in Ones - Brother and Canon

    I've since got MX Linux 21 installed onto a USB stick (one option had a technical fault in the program, so I opted for Balena Etcher, and after a computer restart into the "USB Drive" option, it began operating in drive G. However, despite your invaluable links to setting up Printing and...

    Do I need to install the contents of https://packages.debian.org/bullseye/ipp-usb? I have got MX Linux 21 up and running, with the "Automatic" Persistence saving that I've saved as part of using MX Linux. I've also got my Canon connected, but so far it only loads from the horizontal tray, not...

    All in Ones - Brother and Canon

    I might buy a laserjet one day (at least some are very bulky - still good machines, but too big for a small office, or in my case a home table), but on this occasion, I'll opt for an inkjet. Closely comparing the Brother and Canon models, in terms of the two all-in-ones I've narrowed down to...

    All in Ones - Brother and Canon

    I'm in the process of installing MX Linux 21 shortly, but it looks very promising that with, at least this particular Canon model, it should work fine.

    All in Ones - Brother and Canon

    Hi Lord Boltar Thanks also for your input. As things currently stand, I might be better off opting for the Brother. No reflection on Canon, rather the uncertainty of whether the Pixma TS6350 has ippusbxd installed on it or not, as I'd have to buy the model before knowing. Having said that...

    All in Ones - Brother and Canon

    Hi Chris Like the other responders, your information is also invaluable. I've never used gdebi or dpkg, but if I choose the Canon, I'll do my best to set it up correctly or ask for assistance if required. Both are excellent machines - the Brother is manual while the Canon is automatic, but it...

    All in Ones - Brother and Canon

    Hi Mishalk1 Comparing between your reply and those of the others, it looks like Brother has always been compatible with Linux, or at least nowadays (in case it wasn't originally). Prior to and since posting my topic on this forum, I've read very good reviews about Brother working well with...

    All in Ones - Brother and Canon

    Hi Brickwizard Thanks to you and the others for each of your advice. So many excellent brands and models per brand to choose from, but narrowing down from a large list, it's between the Brother and the Canon on this occasion. It's a shame that Linux isn't given the same level of flexibility...

    All in Ones - Brother and Canon

    Of the following two All-In-Ones, whereabouts are the Linux drivers for the Canon? I'll be using MX Linux 21 XFCE edition in conjunction. Canon state that they supply only Basic drivers for Linux users and that Linux users are no longer supported once they've installed the drivers. What do...

    MX Linux 19.1 GRUB Bootloader Unable to install on hard drive

    I'll be very happy to go first with The Green Hornet upon your suggestion. :) I'll also view your forthcoming steps to resolve the MX 19.1 with GRUB errors dilemma. Once that download's traces are eliminated, the correct 1 May version (or better still a newer download via Sourceforge, via this...
