wattOS R9 / Re: unable to scan
« Last post by leenie on December 15, 2017, 06:36:10 PM »
This solved my Canon printer and scan issues: https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/558795/canon-printer-driver-scangear-mp-for-ubuntu-1404/
These are instructions for Ubuntu. You will install the ppa, open synaptic and reload and search for the two programs it says to and install the appropriate drivers for your printer. Then configure from printer in menu. You will have to run scangearmp to run the scanner. Hope this helps, keep me posted.

wattOS R10 / Re: Unable to install libpulse-dev on fresh install of R10

Problem solved. I opened 'Software & Updates', went to the 'Updates' tab, and checked 'Recommended updates (xenial-updates)'. After that, and a 'sudo apt-get update', I was able to install libpulse-dev successfully (and ultimately build qsstv).

I'm a little puzzled as to why 'Recommended updates' wouldn't be checked by default when I installed WattOS, given that they're, um, recommended. But it looks like I'm all set now.

I usually use synaptic to update, reload, mark all upgrades and apply. Wattos 10  Is based on Ubuntu 16.04. I am still using wattOs R9 because of the and graphics drivers. I have R 10 on a notebook and it works very nice. Maybe say exactly what you are trying to install? Libpulse-dev has to be part of something else.

@blaze, it appears to be related to package versions rather than a difference in the set of packages itself. WattOS seems to have later versions of some packages, causing the incompatibility I'm running into.

@leenie, by "fully update", do you mean something different from the set of commands I mentioned (i.e. sudo apt-get clean / update / autoremove / upgrade / dist-upgrade)? If so, please let me know what else I should be doing.

I do not have a clue, as usual.  ;D

Could it be that the LXLE install have some additions to the source list that wattOS does not have?
