    Unhappy not able to mount my partitions on debian


    hello everyone i have signed up for this form hoping that i can find some help with my problem
    i the verion 4.0 of debian and iam not able to mount my partitions or my hpdeskjet f4180 printer which uses a usb port to my pc
    i have tried
    get apt update
    get apt upgrade
    get apt dist upgrade

    i even looked for and installed some mounting device programs from the package manger which did not work

    First of all its
    apt-get
    That might help...

    Also try pointing your sources to Lenny then run the same commands... That should fix the problem. Run the dist-upgrade outside of X

    I was running into issue with this laptop and everything was fixed after the dist-upgrade... Also if you are really new to linux all I can suggest are books or starting with something easier like ubuntu or mepis... Or an apple if you can go that route... Anywho welcome to our world...

    If you're having issues mounting Windows Partitions, this should work:

    How are you trying to mount the partitions, what command or whatever.

    Standard command is:
    Code:
    # mount -t <filesystem type e.g. ext3> <device e.g. /dev/sda8> <mountpoint e.g. /media/my_filth>
