mfc-7440n scanner ubuntu16.04 fix
Ever since upgrading my ubuntu on my main computer to 16.04 the scanner hasnt worked, i used the brother install tool and added the scanner using this command
sudo brsaneconfig3 -a name=MFC-7440N model=MFC-7440N ip=192.168.0.67
but still nothing. a bit of poking around i found this and im back in business!!
sudo mkdir /usr/lib/sane
sudo cp * /usr/lib64/sane/* /usr/lib/sane/
sudo cp /usr/lib64/libbrscandec3.so.1.0.0 /usr/lib
sudo cp /usr/lib64/sane/libsane-brother3.so.1.0.7 /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/sane
sudo cp /usr/lib64/sane/libsane-brother3.so.1 /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/sane
sudo cp /usr/lib64/sane/libsane-brother3.so /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/sane
sudo cp /usr/lib64/libbrscandec3.so /usr/lib
sudo cp /usr/lib64/libbrscandec3.so.1 /usr/lib

emby media server last.fm plugin
Finally fixed! When i first started using emby media server a few years ago i loved it because it had music scrobbling which ive been doing for years and also film scrobbling which id never done before which was amazing! but last year last.fm changed there api code which broke the last.fm plugin for emby 🙁 we did have mrsmoke looking at the plugin but the man is busy and after months of asking people who could look at this from out of nowhere Symphony came in and fixed it up just out of the blue! I tested it this morning its working great!! so the emby guys are back scrobbling!! great work – i can now write my full review on emby server on ubuntu – here is the plugin zip file. On ububtu you extract it to here /var/lib/emby-server/plugins and the restart the emby-server service or reboot.
here is the main forum thread if you would like to follow it http://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/30066-lastfm-addon-gone/page-4
