    Dual-booting Again

    Four days - that's how long I stuck with Ubuntu. Installed it Tuesday, only mentioned it here yesterday, gone today. No problems with it, but no interest in it.

    Brother HL-2140 B&W Laser Printer under Debian 9 only prints blank pages: a fix

    Addendum: 06/19/18

    After recently installing Debian 9 with Xfce on my 2003 32-bit machine (I call it Pogo2003 -- see description below), I used the above procedure to get my Brother HL-2140 black and white laser printer working. The same identical procedure worked here as with Debian 9 on my 2011 machine. Just FYI.

    Pogo Linux Altura (purchased 2003)
    CPU: AMD Athlon(TM) XP 2400+ 2GHz (32 bit)
    RAM: 1GiB
    Current OS: Debian 9.4
    Desktop Environment: Xfce4
    Disks: 2 120 GB Maxtor IDE
    My hostname: pogo2003
    Printer: Brother HL-2140

    Don't forget to mention that you either have to reboot, or run
    /sbin/sysctl -e --system
    to take effect.
