General :: Setting Up A Dual Boot With Win XP And Slackware 13.1?

Nov 13, 2010

I am having some trouble setting up a dual boot with Win XP and Slackware 13.1. Lilo lists both Linux and Windows, but when I select Windows, all I get is a black screen. I have two hard drives, sda1 and sdb1. I first installed Windows on sdb1 (it is a smaller, older drive). I then installed Slackware on sda1 and selected to install Lilo on the MBR. I'm guessing that by doing this, I wrote over the Windows information that was already there. Could this be my problem? I feel like this should be an easy fix, but I just don't know where to start in order to fix it. If it helps, here is the end of my lilo.conf file.

# Windows bootable partition config begins
other = /dev/sdb1
label = Windows
table = /dev/sdb
# Windows bootable partition config ends
# Linux bootable partition config begins
image = /boot/vmlinuz

Slackware :: Setting Up Scanner In 13.0?

Mar 5, 2010

I'm having problems getting my Canon MP-210 printer/scanner recognized as a scanner device in Slackware 13.0.CUPS setup was a breeze - in less than two seconds it was installed and within 10 more seconds it was printing a test page.Its URI is here, according to CUPS:

usb://Canon/MP210%20series (Printing works flawlessly).My non-privileged user account is a member of the 'wheel', 'scanner', and 'plugdev' groups in /etc/group (among the others recommended by the adduser script. I've tried running xsane as root (Still no devices found) with no success, and the CLI 'scanimage -L' doesn't produce anything either.They just report that there is no configured device.

I've run 'sane-find-scanner' and it reports the following:


found USB scanner (vendor=0x04a9 [Canon], product=0x1721 [MP210 series]) at libusb:001:003 Rebooting and unplugging/plugging in the scanner produces no positive results. /etc/sane.d/dll.conf has the following canon lines in it:


I believe the appropriate entry is the canon630u.

/etc/sane.d/canon630u.conf contains the following:


# Options for the canonusb backend
# Autodetect the Canon CanoScan FB630u
usb 0x04a9 0x2204

Slackware :: Setting Up USB For PIC-programming?

Mar 9, 2010

reading through the documentation for pk2cmd, required for using the PICkit2 programmer. I aim to install using the source, and thus libusb-dev is needed. The docs says that the runtime is usually included with the distro but the dev-part is not. Well, to be on the safe side, I downloaded the source for libusb (0.1.12), which in turn should contain libusb-dev.One step down, a few more to go. pk2cmd should be pretty straightforward to compile, but ...

Now I am asked to set up USB so that it can be used by users other than root. A document is filled to the brim with instruction for cases old and new. It makes my head spin and that's why I am asking. The programmer shows up fine with lsusb,I see it as/dev/bus/usb/001/006So, basically, as I understand it, the device need the proper rights to be used by a regular user. But how do I do that?

Slackware :: Setting Up System To Act As VNC?

Nov 26, 2010

I'm trying to set up my system to act as a vnc so I can access it remotely via a vnc viewer on my android phone. I've never tried this before but from what I've found online, with KDE4 a lot of the usual vnc server programs won't work correctly. Anyone have any tips for getting it to work? It doesn't necessarily have to be vnc. If there's an alternative method to remote control of a computer, that will work too.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Sound Level Setting Very Slow

Jul 2, 2011

I'm using OpenSuse 11.4 64 bits with KDE 4.6.00 (4.6.0) "release 6". Since several days, the sound level setting via the sound icon at the right of the task bar is very slow, ie it takes several seconds (not to say one minut or more) between the action of increase / decrease the sound level and the effect on the sound level.Same behaviour when I select this sound level icon at the right of the task bar, the cursor appears one minut later.

Ubuntu Installation :: No Sound/Can't Open Sys Setting After 10.10 RC Upgrade?

Oct 2, 2010

Last night I upgraded to 10.10 RC, and everything went smooth. A lot of problems were resolved in the upgrade, but unfortunately I got two new problems.1. No Sounds at all. My speakers hum, and I can control the level of the hum/mute with Kmix, but no sounds makes it through. So Kmix is controlling the hardware, but somewhere the sounds isn't making it there.2. No system settings. The system settings panel appears in the app tray when I run it, but after a minute of thinking (and not opening) it disappears.

Slackware :: Setting The JAVA_HOME Variable ?

Jan 10, 2009

I have problems with setting my JAVA_HOME variable. I am using Slackware 12.0, bash shell. This is a question for the 'Linux Newbie' forum (not slackware-specific).

I have set JAVA_HOME in my /etc/profile, like this:

But when I login in with my user name and type env on the command line, I get for JAVA_HOME the following:

Also, in my /etc/profile I have put the path to my java in the PATH variable, like this:

And when I type env when I login, then the PATH variable contains correctly the path to the jdk (as I have put it into /etc/profile).

I expect that after I have set everything as I want in /etc/profile, and restart the computer then what I have set will be relevant and when I login and type env, I will get values to the variables equal to those I have set in /etc/profile. Why it does not happen?

I have particularly a problem with a Java application, which I want to run. When I type ant, I get:
error: JAVA_HOME is not defined correctly. We cannot execute /usr/lib/java/bin/java.

Slackware :: Setting Up HP Deskjet D2660 In 13.0?

Sep 12, 2010

I tried setting up my printer, HP Deskkjet D2660, using CUPS. I enabled the CUPS service and configure the printer through it. But when I try to test print, my printer wont print.
Now, i tried to look at the net for possible answer and somewhere, I read that my printer needs the newer version of hplip than the one included with the default slackware 13.0 install.

1. Do i really need to update hplip just to make my printer work? Do anyone uses the same printer model and make it work without updating the said package?

2. If i really have to update it, is there any Slackbuild script I can use to make the hplip-3.10.6.tar.gz into slackware package? I prefer creating package than installing using make.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Setting Up Receiver To Computer Sound System?

May 14, 2010

im about 3 weeks into linux, started out with fedora actually, but switched to ubuntu. First days of linux was intense but slowly got the hang of it and i enjoy it way better than my previous op vista.

Sound System Setup-
Sony Receiver 3 speakers and 1 subwoofer

From receiver Y connector -(red plug and white plug R/L) to audio plug that goes into laptop output. Laptop- AsusTek g51x with

PHP Code:

**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****card 0: Intel [HDA Intel], device 0: ALC663 Analog [ALC663 Analog]  Subdevices: 0/1  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0card 0: Intel [HDA Intel], device 1: ALC663 Digital [ALC663 Digital]  Subdevices: 1/1  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0 

PHP Code:

alsactl version 1.0.22 

Sound card has Headphone,output,and input holes.

OS- Ubuntu 10.04

The setup worked fine on vista, but on ubuntu whenever i plug in headphones (headphone output) the laptops internal speakers shut off and there is no sound on the headphones, and when i plug in the sony receiver audio plug to my sound card output hole, the laptops speakers are still playing but no sound in the sony receiver. Also when i open the Ubuntu sound manager (I think its either pulseaudio or ASLA, stock gnome one) , it says on the Output tab, "Choose a device for sound output", but there is only one option and it says

"Internal audio analog stereo".

Im literally extremely lost at this point, i have read the forums for help, ASLA wiki (only shows USB sound device support) messed with the Sound Preferences, and spend around 9 hours in the last 2 days trying to make this work.

Ubuntu :: Setting - Wrong Device Was Chosen In The Sound Preferences

Sep 7, 2010

(prior to this i had 8.10 and sound) added a lot of things through command lines,etc...and accidentally stumbled on the fact that the wrong device was chosen in the sound preferences... can someone explain to me what the settings should be? i have just done a clean install of lucid lynx 32 bit i386, no dual boot, just plain clean and fresh lucid lynx. under the output tab- this is where i have a choice between: Internal Audio (analog stereo duplex) USB Audio i know the usb is my speakers now...but what is that analog thing?

under the hardware tab- the internal audio can be analog stereo duplex or analog stereo output, analog stereo input, off, or analog surround with various levels of output from 4.1 to 7.1 the usb audio has only two choices: analog stereo output or digitla stereo duplex under the input tab- internal audio analog stereo is the only device listed choice of connector: microphone 1, mic 2, line in

at the moment i dont have my headphones plugged in, dont want to complicate things. but i am hoping to get skype working and be able to leave the speakers in and when i plug in headphones they will must the speakers automatically. if it doesnt work like that i wont die...but i would like to no have to disconnect the speakers just to use headphones, which is what people i know say they have to do.

Slackware :: Airmon-ng Not Setting Channel Correctly?

Jan 5, 2011

I recently installed slackware-current (not the most recent one) and since then I have not been able to get airmon-ng to set the channel of my network card correctly. I don't think it's a driver issue because the kernel from my previous install was the same as the current kernel ( and it worked fine on my Atheros AR9285 Wireless card. Now every time I try to deauthenticate, it says the card is in channel -1 and won't work. One of the differences now is that I ran netconfig (I never ran this before). Sometimes when I run it, it complains about dhcpcd service.

Slackware :: Breezed Through Setup And Missed Setting UTF-8 In 13.1?

Aug 3, 2010

I just updated to Slackware 13.1 last night (clean installation). However, when it came to setting up LILO, I chose "no" to the UTF setup when I usually choose "yes." I think choosing no put the line below in LILO.conf:


append = "vt.default_utf8=0"

What's the LILO setting if one chooses "yes" instead of "no"?

Slackware :: How To Change Xine Media Setting

My DVD player is on /dev/hdc but when I put 'xine /dev/hdc' on the command line I get an error saying 'There is no demuxer plugin available to handle /dev/hdc'. If I use the mount point /media/DVD instead of /dev/hdc it works fine. I am trying to get DVDs to play automatically but I can't see how to get xine to look for /media/DVD instead of /dev/hdc. I have tried changing the location on the Settings -> Media tab, and the line which says 'directory a media in dvd device will be mounted' in ~/.xine/config but neither worked.
