as for thunar or konq im not quite sure. however for now you can do this as root

create a mount point
mkdir /mnt/usb

find the usb device (for example it might be /dev/sdb)
fdisk -l

mount the device
mount /dev/sdb /mnt/usb

you can now access it through /mnt/usb

You will like it here.  Linux is an amazing tool.

OK, found a script in kernel source's scripts/ directory that decompresses the kernel itself. It does this by looking for the header of the compressed portion, which is found and identified by a few characters, similar to (same as?) "file magic". Starting at that location, the file is tailed through a pipe to the proper decompression program.

I'm sure that, having that decompressed kernel, one could just follow the same process but look for cpio's unique signature. Only added difficulty would be finding the end; or maybe cpio will still output despite trailing "garbage". Haven't checked. Mainly needed a firm idea that it was possible, and looks like it is.

Haven't actually tried this, but for my purposes it's solved.

'hp deskjet 1512 sane'

Short version: This one needs hpllip of at least 3.13.8 and the latest in 7.0's repo is 3.11.x.
7.1 has 3.14.x already.

You can try requesting a new hplip package for 7.0. No idea how buildable that would be at this point.

If you're in XFCE, going to the display settings under system settings should give you the option to turn off mirroring.

I am using Vector Linux 7.0, and I recently purchased a HP Deskjet 1512 printer/scanner combo, I have been able to get the printer part working (via cups), but how do I get the scanner part working?

I have connected to an external monitor and would like to turn off mirroring. None of the 'Fn' buttons are working. Think it is F7 in XP that does this.
Thanks, Keith
