Canon USA Printer Support are using LibreOffice?

I called Canon USA to talk about the ink usage of a new printer.

When I stated that I make letter size posters using LibreOffice Writer,
he said "we use it".

So, with that statement, is seems that Canon USA printer support people
are using LibreOffice.

I would love to get it verified, but it would be a good marketing coo
for LO if a big company like Canon uses LibreOffice.

ALSO, finally Canon USA is now offering Linux drivers for some of their
printers.  I use to have to go to Canon UK to find them - before I buy a
new printer - if there is Linux support. Some of their printer lines do
not have Linux drivers.

I used to work for a company that used OpenOffice (this was before
LibreOffice was available).  I suspect the only reason they did was
because they were so d@mn cheap, they wouldn't pay for MS Office.  ;)

Well cheap or not, it is nice to have as many big companies using
LibreOffice as possible.

I bet there are a lot of people out there, and on these lists, that are
using LO not because of being "cheap".  It is nice to have a free office
suite but I prefer LO over MS Office. Just like I prefer to use Linux
over Win10 because of all of the viruses and other nasties that Windows
have, while Linux do not have these things infect their systems.

And the suggestion that the latest crypt virus may have been introduced

Well, if you look at the CNN Headline News, they have stated that MS has
a patch for this virus, but wanted to charge some users for it.  The
on-air comment seems to say that since MS had the patch, they should
have sent it out to ALL MS Windows users.  Plus, it the patch was
installed, most computers would not have been infected.

Fro me, I use Linux so I do not have the security problems as MS Windows
users.  I do have Win10, but rarely use it.  Most times I just go to the
Win 10 partition to run the update app.

Re: Canon USA Printer Support are using LibreOffice?

Last year, I accidently erased Win10 in an attempt to create a dual boot with Mint 18. It was totally my fault. Now, I'm kind of glad I did it. So far I haven't missed it.

Re: Canon USA Printer Support are using LibreOffice?

I have the other way around.

During an upgrade for Ubuntu, the computer crashed and messes up GRUB.  
So now I have a 1TB drive with access to only 1/4 of it. The problem is
the DVD cannot be set as a boot option.  BIOS has a weird way to set
devices to be bootable.  My other laptop's BIOS is easier.  Of course
its DVD boot commands will not work with the new ASUS's BIOS.  So with
this problem I cannot run the repair disk, since it requires to be
booted via the CD/DVD drive.

The laptop had been able to boot to from the DVD, which was the way I
added Ubuntu in the first place.

If I cannot find the correct BIOS commands - or maybe the GRUB commands
- to boot the repair disk, I would remove the hard drive and repair the
drive via another Ubuntu laptop.  The only problem with that, I would
loose my 4 year warranty.

Re: Canon USA Printer Support are using LibreOffice?

Good day Tim:

         Did you probe usb for boot repair disk (Burn it in a usb flash
memory and would be boot there with your Bios). In GNU / Linux you can
use UNetbootin, and in windows there are other similar solutions.

I hope this help,

Jorge Rodríguez

Re: Canon USA Printer Support are using LibreOffice?


I have gone to the BIOS and their "new" style of commands will not allow
the what I have seen for booting from the DVD or USB.  I can now only
boot directly to Windows or a broken GRUB.  If I could boot from
something other than the hard drive, I would have been able to use my
different repair DVDs.

Unless I have and enter the correct BIOS command, which I still have not
found, I cannot get it to boot other than the hard drive.

Re: Canon USA Printer Support are using LibreOffice? boot repair

In reply to this post by krackedpress
Go to https://sourceforge.net/projects/boot-repair-cd/files/

Download the appropriate 32 or 64 bit iso and create a CD, NOT A DVD.

Suggest ImgBurn if on Windows. http://www.imgburn.com/

If it does boot, use default repair.

If it does not, research online the hot-key for your computer that
allows 'boot from CD" or "Select Boot Drive" option during boot.

If this does not work, it is very common for newer computers to boot to USB.

Make bootable USB stick with iso image.  See https://unetbootin.github.io/

There are many methods for this in the internet, research until you find
the method you will be most comfortable with.

Once the boot has been repaired, see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/RecoveryMode

Select  "network" and then "dpkg".

If dpkg starts to work and fails, restart machine and repeat until it
has nothing left to fix.

Hope this helps.

Re: Canon USA Printer Support are using LibreOffice? boot repair


CD or DVD - it still needs to be able to boot from the DVD Drive.

I am still waiting for the laptop's tech people to send me the proper
BIOS command and its options to add that to my laptop.

I have several different repair discs - CD and DVD. Without being able
to boot from it, they are no use.

resolved? - Canon USA Printer Support are using LibreOffice? boot repair


I( found out why I could not get the CD/DVD drive to boot - It may be
the drive.
I plugged in a USB DVD drive and I was able to boot from it.

So, I let the Asus people know about this problem.
