Scanners/Printers on un-supported OS


Got a scanner, printer, all-in-one device that is not supported on your OS, maybe a new printer and you do not want to upgrade your OS. All is not lost!

For scanners try VueScan found at: http://www.hamrick.com/ It replaces the software bundled with your device and is supported on most OS.

For printers try Gutenprint found at: http://gimp-print.sourceforge.net/index.php Its an open-source project so might take some time for new printers to be supported, yet you might be lucky for your situation.

I am a Data & Software Consultant from Malta with a specialisation in Business Intelligence & Data Mining. Currently, a senior lecturer and software developer at MCAST focusing on Databases, Business Intelligence and Applied Computational Intelligence modules at degree level. As a developer, I have been working on the development of a management information system together in a small team using PostgreSQL, Spring, Jira, Confluence, Git, amongst other tools. My first degree was a B.Sc.(Hons.) at the University of Malta then I graduated at De Montfort University in M.Sc. Business Intelligence Systems and Data Mining where I was recognised with the Best Student and Best Project awards. My postgraduate research was then presented and published in an IEEE conference in Berlin in 2016. During my free time, I try to find a balance between photography, diving, guitar playing and an occasional camping or walk in the countryside.
