Today, Mechatotoro gave me a nice Epson XP-231 printer as a present. I did not have much problem to get it up and running (both the printing and the scanning functions) on MX-15.
However, while I was trying to install the drivers on MX-14, I ran into problems. BIG problems. Suddenly, my system decided that every file I selected with the pointer was to be deleted. Fortunately, it would ask for confirmation and thus I could recover some trivial folders: my documents, my downloads, and my desktop.
Thinking that maybe my mouse was misbehaving (too bad because it is not even 2 months old), I unplugged it to try the mousepad. Bad news! It did not work.
|This is quite a way to start the new year!|
In a desperate move, I opened the laptop, removed the keyboard, the hard drive, and checked the memory. After being cleaned, they looked better. Not being able to do anything else, I put the laptop together again and started it fearing the worse...
Well, it is working normally again! I hope it keeps doing it while I get my new laptop. The problem is that Linux laptops are not so easy to find here. Hopefully, I'll find one I like soon. 2017, what a great start!
