Hello,

I have a very old netbook bought in 2009. Windows 7 has got very very slow and it is impossible to do anything. I have a desktop pc with windows 10 but it hasn't got the drivers of my scanner so I have to connect it to my netbook and that's why I can't get rid of it or I will have to buy a new scanner. I would like to install Lubuntu (the linux website suggests me Lubuntu as my netbook is so old) but I must be sure it will support my scanner. I'm using the live version. How can I try if the scanner works? I connected the scanner to the netbook, but nothing happened.
This is my first time with linux.
Thank you
