I just upgraded from Ubuntu 10.10 (64 bit) from Ubuntu 10.04 (64 bit) on my Samsung R580 laptop [URL] So far all my hardware seems to be working except the laptop's integrated camera. In 10.04 the camera worked and I could use the program "Cheese" to take photos and videos with the camera. In 10.10 I installed Cheese and tried to use my laptop's camera but it didn't work. I installed all the available updates for 10.10 but still the camera wouldn't work. The only information about the camera on the laptop's webpage is that it is a 1.3 MP Web Camera.
I have a Samsung NC10 and want to use my built in webcam on TokBox. However, when I try to use it, my camera and mic do not work. TokBox gives be a "Devices Disabled" message. It says set to "allow" and click ok, but there is nothing to click. I also can't get the camera to work with video chat in Gmail.
I know the the camera works because I can get it to work in Cheese. The mic, I can't get to work at all. I have gone to the Macromedia site and set the settings to "allow", but still no go.
Both work fine in XP (I have a dual boot), so it's not a hardware problem.
Info: OS: EasyPeasy 1.6 (same as latest Ubuntu Netbook Edition) Adobe Flash Player: 10.0.45.2 Browser: Firefox & Chromium (didn't work in either)
I was looking to iphone and i was surprised the quality of such tiny camera.
Is there any alternative camera for my laptop to have similar or much better then the one in iphone? So that i can use it from my laptop, but have very sharp HD quality with maximum megapixel + highest frame per second.
I like ubuntu alright, but prefer Debian overall. Before I reinstall Debian I was wondering if during the install if the latest release would automatically recognize the Samsung ML 1665 as the latest ubuntu release did. If not, how does one get the printer installed.
On Printer installation, the ML-1740 printer is recognized, and the driver for the ML 1750 is recommended. When either test page or other page is printed, job shows in queue, then shows as completed, never gets printed. Cables look fine, Printer worked fine with F11.
I've up until recently been using Mint on my n210, but as I really liked the look of openSUSE (Gnome) I have changed to 11.3. So far I love the distro, but I am having a little issue - some fn key combinations aren't working (brightness in particular). When in Mint I was able to install a couple of programs made by Voria (from Linux On My Samsung), is there such a program for openSUSE?
I've just gotmy new phone a SamsungGT-S5230! My problem is:I can't transfer any file from my ubuntu desktop over to my phone. On the CD it came with there is only a windows software called "PC Studio" and Windows drivers. As I plug in the phone via USB to the PC it offers 3 options: PC Studio, Media Storage, Background Storage. If I pick one of the first 2 options my phone says it is connected, and charges via USB. The third option says "Please Insert a MicroSD card". (I don't have such at home). Ubuntu can't see my phone, none of the options seem to work. Maybe I should buy a MicroSD card? Or is there a workaround for the windows software to run ubder Linux? I tried to install t with WINE, but it froze during the installation.
I have just purchased the Samsung N150 net-book. The reason for purchasing was so I could watch movies, listen to music and browse on the go. It came with windows 7 starter and a load of pre installed Samsung crap. I was wondering whether Ubuntu would be a better choice for me since I only really want, Chrome, VLC, Spotify, MSN and Dev++ compiler.
I am very computer literate doing programming at Uni, but have not used Linux before. Also there's loads of Samsung software for extending battery life or something. Will I be able to install that on Ubuntu or not?
I bought a new printer from SAMSUNG ML2245 Model. In my system (fedora12), I could not print anything. Then I found that this model samsung ML2245 does not exist in the list box. And I tried to use generic printer, that is also failed. How to install the driver for this model?
I have a 650Gb HDD usb drive that I wish to use with ubuntu 10.04LTS aswell as on a WINXP system. HDD is clean. My ubuntu system has a /home partition formatted to EXT3, but as I use IFDRIVE to read this partition from windows, it needs to be set to have inode of 128 eg (mkfs.ext3 /dev/sdb1 -i 128)
my way of thinking is I need to partition the drive, format the drive to EXT3 making sure that is set inode to 128 How do is the best way to do this?
Then I need to get ubuntu to talk to this drive when I plug it in How do I do this?
My laptop has a WD400 scorpio IDE hard disk. I'm trying to figure out if it's DMA compatible or not. Taking the cover off there's no mention of DMA on the label. I've googled and get confusing results, at least to me. Is there a way I can figure out if it's DMA or not?
I know that 32 bit windows won't recognize it as 3TBs... I have read that 64 bit windows will with some extra software... my question is will ubuntu recognize the drive as 3 TBs? I just ask because I am currently building a Myth box and would LOVE to have that capacity of storage for all my media.
I had an ubuntu 11.10 installation that was no longer supported and was low on disk space, so I bought a new disk and installed debian wheezy on it and made it the boot disk.
The machine had/has a samsung e2020 monitor, and ubuntu and the new debian install both recognized it as 1600x900 resolution. I ran the proprietary nvidia driver with ubuntu but did nothing at all with the debian ... it just worked.
The power supply on the machine conked out and I took it ro be replaced and dug out an old, old machine to use while the newer one was gone. Debian would not install on it. But ubuntu 11.10 did, but displayed at 1024x768 on the samsung which it recognized as a 'VGA'. It was slow, but it worked. When the newer machine came back I reinstalled it ... but its debian 7.6, which used to know the samsung at 1600x900 resolution, now runs it at 1024x768, just as the old box had!
It must be some change made to some firmware in the samsung itself? It's not very pleasant.
I've tried to install the nvidia driver , but no luck there. I see now that debian uses something called 'nouveau' to run the proprietary nvidia chip, and I'm all for that ... but it used to be able to run it at 1600x900 and now it's forgotten how.
Here they are ...
Code: Select alljfl@wsdeb:~$ xrandr Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1024 x 768, maximum 4096 x 4096 VGA-1 connected 1024x768+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 0mm x 0mm 1024x768 60.0* 800x600 60.3 56.2 848x480 60.0 640x480 59.9
So I've gotten lucky, haven't I? I don't know if the display will still be ok when I restart ... so I'll save a copy of the above and try to script it, if I must, on reboot/relogin.
I just bought a Samsung 850 Pro 250GB SSD drive and have since then found out that Linux has/had a faulty implementation of queued trim (which is a synonym for NCQ I think). I'm using kernel 4.1.0 (the default selected by the Debian 8.1 installer) and I've read that Samsung drives are blacklisted for queued trim by the recent kernels. However, the output of dmesg contains the following lines, with and without TRIM enabled for the drive (i.e. with or without the "discard" option in fstab for the drive):
Code: Select all[ 1.012287] ata6.00: 1953525168 sectors, multi 16: LBA48 NCQ (depth 31/32), AA [ 1.013438] ata5.00: failed to get NCQ Send/Recv Log Emask 0x1 [ 1.013440] ata5.00: 488397168 sectors, multi 1: LBA48 NCQ (depth 31/32), AA [ 1.015037] ata5.00: failed to get NCQ Send/Recv Log Emask 0x1
Since the depth is not 1 but rather 31, it looks like NCQ is enabled. I've disabled TRIM on the drive for now, and whether it's safe to enable TRIM or not.
I have a Samsung ML 2510 USB connected to an F13 based system. The printer is registered as the default printer. A test print gives the printer what I call a wake up call and then never prints. Win XP dual boot prints fine.
I have F15 fresh install on Samsung Q45. The brightness function key is recognized but doesn't really increase or decrease brightness. It is set to maximum.There was a workaround in F14 for same problem.
I want to add a Samsung ML-1911 printer to my desktop I have down loaded the unified linux driver from samsung site. It says 'server of cups printing system is not accessible at the moment' and does not show a printer.
It looks as if I'll get a deal I can't turn down and sell my old original Android phone and get a new Verizon Android. They also have a tablet, there is the present 7 and a half inch screen and a newer ten incher coming out, the smaller one is heavier but I could get it for a relatively low price. it has a usb port. Question is can I dual boot Gnome3 on it? and can I then update it? And can Gnome3 do the touch screen thing? Using Fedora of course. Or should I put the tablet off for a while?
I'm trying to tether my sprint samsung exclaim. I've tried the ubuntu network-manager and gnome-ppp. dmesg seems to show the phone connected and the cdc_acm driver loading the phone as /dev/ttyACM0 . However running wvdialconf says no modem detected.Furthermore, when I specify the device in gnome-ppp I get an input/output error.how to get tethering to work in 9.04?
I've a Samsung SyncMaster 943, widescreen I also have a GForce 8400 GS This monitor supports (as seen on website) a 1440*900 resolution. I've installed the nvidia driver (from homepage) with version 195.36.24 The NVidia X Server Settings shows only a 1360*768 as max possible resolution. So, I've edited xorg.conf, restarted PC but got no luck... here it is my xorg.conf
I run a couple Ubuntu machines in the house, my wife runs XP, there's an eee, etc. I got a Samsung ML-02851ND printer thinking that I could just plug it into my router and then install the printer on all of the various machines and I could print from them. I guess I realize that I can hook up the printer to a host machine and go that route, but i thought the whole point was to hook the printer up to the router.
I am trying to use my Samsung YP-K3 player with Ubuntu 9.10. Many people report that Ubuntu fails to recognize similar players and some fiddling with Amorak is necessary. However, my system recognizes the player fine, and I can copy files to it without any difficulties. However, the player itself fails to recognise the files that are copied to it via Ubuntu. It will play the files that were previously copied to it via Windows fine, and I can go back and copy edit the playlist in Windows and everything works accordingly, it just seems Ubuntu is copying the files over in a non-supported format or something, which is weird, because they're all just standard MP3 files, many of which were originally created under Windows.
