The The Restaurant at the Edge of the Universe, previously known as The Water Cooler, is a place to post stuff that has absolutely nothing at all to do with computers, broadband, Scot's Newsletter, or anything that's "supposed" to be here.
That's what's driving me crazy. Both machines are running OpenSUSE 15.1 installed on the main machine about 10 days after installation on backup laptop, which is the one that scans without issues. I don't see any differences other than the laptop hardware itself.
If it works fine on one laptop but not on another, logic would tell you that something is wrong with the laptop, not the scanner.
That "something" could be drivers, operating system, kernel module differences, library differences, CUPS version differences, etc.
Yeah, carp like this used to drive me nuts, too. Nowadays, I'm too old and lazy er... laid back to let it bother me much.
Final outcome seems to be that the scanner portion of my ancient HP multi-function is only functional with one of my Lenovo laptops. The Thinkpad continues to be unable to scan more than once without failing, and when it fails it leaves the scanner device in a state that requires a power-cycle so it will function with the other Lenovo laptop. At least I have a functional scanner as long as my backup laptop stays alive.
I wouldn't care so much if I knew why this happens. I HATE stuff like this that seems random and illogical!
I have a EeePC900 (9") which would probably still suit fine for travel, but the keyboard broke. I replaced it but some of the keys, mainly F/Function keys don't work and the battery is fairly much toast. Runs AntiX nicely though.
Thanks! Monitor is actually a 43" Sony UHD (4K) TV. Image quality on it is excellent even for reading text up close.
Yes it is a bit heavier than I'd like (1.5kg) but I want Debian and trying to de-googlify my life a bit, but Android tablet w/keyboard was a serious option.
I did just buy a new camera for the trip yesterday as well - Panasonic Lumix TZ220 (it has other names in other countries). Blew me away checking out all its amazing features on YouTube etc. Pick it up tomorrow. I sold my Wideye iSavi broadband satellite modem for $1,000 the other day, only spent $1,600 of that so far. 😏
