Finally got around to getting my scanner working again. I am learniiiiiing~~! Even if I uh used the terminal to open a gui file browser as root in order to mess with stuff. ... er. Also ubuntu kept yelling at me because it's like DUDE YOU'RE MESSING AROUND AS ROOT AND YOU ARE PROBABLY DUMB but I am so awesome.
Maybe one day I'll actually manage proper geekery rather than "I AM PIRATING* AND INSTALLING DRIVERS, FEAR ME"
