    tommag replied to a thread Linux help? in Our Town
    I don't know what happened, but simple scan now works with this scanner. Maybe it required more than one restart? Unfortunatly, I'm only able to scan one page into a file and have to scan multiple docs into a single pdf. Anyway, it's a start. ...

    Thanks, I saw something like that,but since I'm not sure of myself and am getting tired, I'll try it in the morning. Popper, I checked for updates and installed them, not sure if that's what you meant.

    tommag replied to a thread Linux help? in Our Town
    Looking at some bug files from a couple years ago, it looks like the problem is that the drivers need to be moved to a new location. If I manage to muddle my way through this, I might even get to the point that I can spell kompooter.

    I think 19.3 is what I have. The scanner is around 2 years old. The only brand that has drivers listed on their website for mint is epson. I might try one of theirs.

    No luck with NOE as well. They don't have equivalent molds (to be honest they are specialty use or long-out of production molds.) I will measure the bullets out and try to use another online BC calculator to get a more refined BC than just their...

    I'll go to NOE and see. Mountain mold's new site doesn't list 6.5 molds anymore and he doesn't cut molds to copy that 8mm mold profile so his design software is not available on those three. Bruce
