comment S1300I scanner issues under Ubuntu 14.10 using Sane
Here's what I've done. 1. I removed the old sane installation so it won't conflict with the from source install. sudo apt-get remove libsane libsane-common libsane-dev libsane-hpaio sane. 2. For reference my git checkout is: e6a249e0424f6854b7ed12f8272633a0edecfa90 latest tag: RELEASE_1_0_25 3. running scanimage -L gave me a .so conflict despite being build from source, so I re-install libsane and that seems to have fixed the error. Now, running scanimage -L gives me no scanners found.

It'll take me sometime to validate this, but if this works. You totally earned that bounty. :D

comment How to create a screencast?
I'll give this a +1 since I know the author. :-) It has a decent set of feature and is pretty simple to use out of the box.

comment Where does Alacarte store the file with the edited menus?
the filenames was driving me up the wall! I have no idea why it can't name the file after the application. Thanks for the hint though. :)

comment nvidia quadro K1100M issue with Ubuntu 14.04
On a side note. I tried nvidia-331, nvidia-346, and nvidia-352 (currently installed) and they all have the exact same issue. I have a feeling it's an some obscure flag that I'm missing. Maybe the 4K display is confusing it somehow.

comment nvidia quadro K1100M issue with Ubuntu 14.04
@kilop I have the same laptop and probably the same nvidia card and I have the same issue. When I have nvidia enabled, it's black screen. No login no nothing. To switch card from the command line you can use prime-select intel/nvidia. I'm running it in intel mode right now and it works okay-ish. Though if I run any app that needs GLX support it crashes.

comment Fujitsu S1300i advances document but doesn't scan
I've had a similar issue. This is the thread I started with no resolution. askubuntu.com/questions/567863/… Possibly helpful to you. If you do figure it out, do let me know.

comment 15.04: rsync connection refused
ssh-keygen (generate a password less key). ssh-copy-id -i ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub user@host, then it should work w/o a password and be just as secure. If you really want to give your crypto key a pass phrase you can play around with ssh-agent and such and still have your script work.

comment 15.04: rsync connection refused
well, assuming you have ssh working and setup. Try something along these lines: rsync -avP --log-file=rs.txt --delete-excluded --delete --no-g --exclude=lost+found /home user@boson.local:/boson-backup/boson/ that should be equivalent. You can also play around with -z (compression) and --compress-level=NUM (ie. balance between CPU usage and badwidth). I'm not sure if this would be a solution.. but like I said.. I've never had the need to setup an rsync server since ssh is just always available in all my env. Worth giving it a go and see if it works. (assuming ssh is open)

comment How can I boot into Arch Linux using initramfs, in Ubuntu's grub?
check /etc/default/grub for your settings as well. As long as you update the settings and run update-grub you should be okay. Though are you sure it's using the Ubuntu grub. If you have 2 different grubs, you can only have one active at a time. Which one is installed on the MBR.. that's the one that's active. You might need to re-install it on the MBR (ie. /dev/sda instead of /dev/sda1 )

update-grub2? It's a bit different. I believe the latest ubuntu uses that. Can you also drop in your grub.cfg. Odds are you just need an entry for ArchLinux in your config. I'm surprised it wasn't auto detected.
