    It sounds like it's when Canon did the new updates that the link was changed.

    All in Ones - Brother and Canon

    Hi Chris, I am still using MX Linux from a USB stick, but with the broken Canon link, I'm currently stuck how to do the equivalent to resume operating my all-in-one.

    All in Ones - Brother and Canon

    Canon have since changed their link, as this one no longer works: https://www.canonijetsetup.com/canon-pixma-ts6350-driver-download/ What is the replacement Canon link so that I can resume printing and scanning from my TS6350 all-in-one?

    Chromebooks and Laptops Pre-Installed with Linux

    I have to admit that I'd not heard of those, but I will have a meander through those two links for further potential ideas of laptop purchases.

    Preventing or Stopping CPU Freezing in Linux

    I've tried two different Terminal codes, but when I try to save them, I can't attach them here for some reason. As far as I know, it doesn't happen when I do a specific task.

    Preventing or Stopping CPU Freezing in Linux

    No logs appear when this happens as I can't move the cursor and the fan spins very rapidly during those moments.

    Chromebooks and Laptops Pre-Installed with Linux

    Hi Chris Lots of good options from everyone including you here. If possible, I'll purchase a laptop from a UK seller, but I've also seen some excellent reviews of overseas ones too.

    Chromebooks and Laptops Pre-Installed with Linux

    Hi kc1di Going by your comments, and after thinking through all my options, I think I'll now pass on Chromebooks after all, but I'll note the links for future reference in case I ever purchase a Chromebook in due course. I'll keep my options open, but I agree that a general computer would be...

    Linux Miscellany

    Although I've been using Linux on and off over the past few years, nowadays I use MX Linux, XFCE version. Out of the DEs you've quoted, I recognize Openbox, but have never used it.

    For MX Linux, is there an equivalent of Windows’ Character Map?; Is there a Linux equivalent of Speccy for technical specifications?
