I have just bought a second hand Acer Aspire 5920G laptop, and have had no trouble with installing the Gnome version.
The one problem I do have is my scanner (Canon LiDe 90) will not work.
I tried to set it up manually but there is no entry for the LiDe 90.
I have had it working under another distro, but cannot remember which one.
When it picks up a scanner it picks up the built in webcam.
Is there any way to get the scanner up and running.
On the Canon site it says mine is Linux compatable.
