Re: Scan2pdf error

Thanks for doing that. Have tried out but still the same error.
I have tested Gscan2pdf with the same setting on Mint 18 and PcLinuxOS and both report the same error.

Re: Scan2pdf error

No as I posted I have two machines both installed with MX17 with the same problem. The bug report shows that in theory the fault was resolved in 2016 but it has raised its ugly head again in version 1.6.0-5.

For 32bit you can forget PcLinuxOS as it only supports 64 bit.

Re: How to share thunderbird profile

@Fornhamfred - I wrote this late last night but must have screwed up posting.
