Thunderbird and Evolution Email Setup

Posted 08-17-2013 at 10:46 AM by wmromine

After recently upgrading my Linux OS from Squeeze to Wheezy, I needed to re-setup my email, again. My Internet provider is Time Warner Cable ("TWC") with their RoadRunner ("RR") service. Debian uses Evolution for the default email access. Initially, I thought I would search the Internet for the setup instructions, and quickly discovered it was pretty much a waste of time. I have another computer that uses Mozilla Thunderbird, so I just translated the settings to Evolution,...

HP ScanJet 4100C - Cleaning the Inside of the Glass

Posted 07-16-2011 at 01:56 PM by wmromine

I have been using an HP ScanJet 4100C with my linux computer for a number of years. I primarily use it to scan old pictures into GIMP for restoration or enhancement.

Installing Img2pdf Software on Debian Linux

Posted 01-01-2009 at 09:22 AM by wmromine
Tags img2pdf, pdf

I had a need to get the Img2pdf software from www.freshmeat.net to run on my Debian 3.1 (Sarge) linux machine. This software is used to convert a folder of single page image files to a single pdf document. Installing the img2pdf software turned out to be a very difficult task for me since I am not familiar with programming. The hardship could have been significantly reduced if better installation documentation were available, but that did not appear to be the case. Since I was able to successfully...
