  3. I use zorin 12 very hard to install

    1. Although based on Ubuntu, under Zorin 12 the installer will not download some dependencies. The problem is the name is slightly different on some.

      libcrypto network REQUIRED
      libnetsnmp-devel network REQUIRED libsnmp-dev
      sane-devel scan REQUIRED libsane-dev
      python-devel base REQUIRED libpython-dev
      cups-devel base REQUIRED
      libusb base REQUIRED libcups2-dev
      libtool base REQUIRED
      cups-image base REQUIRED libcupsimage2-dev
      xsane scan OPTIONAL
      libjpeg base REQUIRED libjpeg-dev
      dbus fax REQUIRED
      Open Synaptic and try to install the above dependencies with the corrected name. Install as many as you can, close Synaptic and run the installer again noting any dependencies that did not install or download automatically. Rinse and repeat.
