You may want to go through each step you went through with the grub problem. Possibly you accidently left one out.

Your customizations do sound a lot like many we made easy on MX Linux, though...such as auto login.
The MX Linux repositories: Backports galore! If we don't have something, just ask and we'll try--we like challenges. New packages: mvp 0.29.0, Pale Moon 27.9.4, wine-staging 3.13, MPC-QT 18.03, Linux kernel 4.17.8, ffmpeg 4.0.2

@stevepusser:
Never heard of mxlinux, but I did used mepis for a while. Thank for offering some help.

grub does not read the /etc/default/grub file
should have been written:
the user did not replace the /etc/default/grub file, when he thought he did so. He just backed up the original file :wink:

Updated first post accordingly.

That is a cumbersome method, it is usually more effective and less confusing for everyone to make a separate thread for each individual question. But of course, the choice is yours to make.

For those like me needing scanning function there is simple-scan. I add this post to my settings:
Code: Select all
apt-get install simple-scan

Add missing package libusb:
Code: Select all
apt-get install libusb-0.1

Download brother scannind package for brother printer:
Code: Select all
http://support.brother.com/g/b/downloadlist.aspx?c=ca&lang=en&prod=mfc7860dw_all&os=128

Install the thing:
Code: Select all
root@debian:/home/rimbaud/Downloads/tmp# dpkg -i --force-all brscan4*

Set scanner:
Code: Select all
root@debian:/home/rimbaud/Downloads/tmp# brsaneconfig4 -a name=MFC-7840-DW DCP7065DN model=MFC-7840-DW ip=192.168.000.107

Where MFC-7840-DW is my model, to be chnged by yours, and ip address is the one reserved for my printer on my router (this is wifi mode, see 000 instead of 0).
