OpenSUSE Hardware :: Document Size Incorrect - How To Get Correct Size
Jun 8, 2011
Have just installed Lexmark s605 printer on wireless network, printer works ok but when i print a document even though it is showing the correct size on 'print preview', the printed output is on the page is tiny and and 90deg rotated, I've tried various drivers from the Lexmark website, and also messing about in printer settings but nothing seems to make any difference.
I scanned a document with xsane and saved it as a pdf, the pdf shows up great but there is extra white space at the bottom of the document. how do i get rid of the white space and make the document the actual real legal size?
I have googled and looked around on the forums but I couldn't find anything that directly answers my question. I have a dual boot set up with Vista and Ubuntu 9.10. My hard drive is partitioned into dev/sda1 (where Vista resides) and dev/sda2 (where Ubuntu resides) and /dev/sda4 which I use as a shared hard drive for the two operating systems.
When I first installed Ubuntu on dev/sda2 I used gparted to make /dev/sda2 a 10 GB partition becuase I wanted to try putting ubuntu on a very small partition. Since then I used gparted to expand /dev/sda2 to 32GB. But when I use System Monitor (System--->Adminstrative----->System Monitor) it shows only that the /dev/sda2 space is 10GB (and says that there are only 2.9 GB) remaining unused. Yet when I use gparted to look at the partitions, it says that /dev/sda22 is 32 GB with 3.9 GB remaining unused.
I am wondering if anyone knows why they show two different sizes and what I can do to fix the size being shown. When I tried to make a tar gz back up of my system iit returned a message warning me that my /dev/sda2 partition was almost full because it put the 1.5 GB tar gz file in my home drive (which I suppose the system monitor only sees as a 10 GB space that already has 7 GB in it).
My MP3 Player (Zen:Vision:M) has roughly 60 GB of space and yet Ubuntu insists only 3.6 GB is available. I know this is not true because in Windows the correct amount of room is displayed and can be filled up. Because my music collection is stored in my Linux partition I need to solve this issue if I'm going to actually use my MP3 Player. What is also interesting is the fact that the device doesn't show up in Gparted, System Monitor or fdisk.
When I attempt to look at the Zen's contents through Nautilus I get this message:
Error initializing camera: -1: Unspecified error
And when I update through Banshee every song gives an error of:
Question:Several months ago I upgraded my hard drive on a dual boot machine (xp & U9.10 - both 64bit) from approx 80gb to 250gb. I chose to use DriveClone from windows to clone the old drive directly to the new drive. Operational everything works fine. the problem is the Ubuntu HD size went from around 10GB to approx 150Gb, but the filesystem only recognizes approx. 10GB as the total available capacity. I just tried to reinstall Ubuntu without reformatting and only recovered a few GB's. GParted reports the proper partition size. Is there any way I can correct this problem? It's not a big issue...I thought I would check here first before I reformatted the partition. The pre-boot disk check ran and reported no errors but the file system is still not seeing the unused GB's.
I am using Kubuntu Amd64 Lucid on my desktop and I have allocated 08.03 GB partition for swap. But today I have noticed that system monitor is showing this as 09.90GB which is incorrect.
I tried deactivating the swap from KDE Partition manager. Even after deactivating swap it still shows the swap as 1.9 GB. So there is clearly 1.9 GB swap added to my system. I am not sure how. Attached screen shot clearly shows the system monitor issue. One possibility is, I have 4 GB (3.7 asper system) RAM comprising two units of 2 GB cards. Is this 1.9 GB read from one of these? I tried to boot the system from Kubuntu AMD64 live CD and then it showed only 8 GB as expected. So not sure whats causing this issue in my installation.
In Ubuntu 10.04 using Document Viewer 2.30.0 I've noticed that every time I open the program or a PDF file I haven't opened before the window size seems to reset to default. Thumbnails sidebar re-enables, view goes back to "Fit Page Width" and the actual size of the window goes back to being very small (default).
I removed an ntfs partition I had in my HD and then resized my home partition with gparted to occupy all the available space. The resulting partition is supposed to be 129GB, and gparted/partition magic see that size. But the system does not, and all tools report the old partition size and the same free space I had before resizing.
a client brought in an 160GB external HDD and wanted to get the files off it, there appeared to be no partitions on the disk but i thought it may have been formatted to use the whole disk. I tried to mount it as the various FS types the client thought it may have been to no avail.
I ran testdisk on it which told me that it previously had a mac partition table and a 210GB partition on it (which is larger than the disk) could anyone enlighten me as to whether or not this is even possible, and if so how could i retrieve the data?
Ubuntu 10.04, xsane 0.996, Brother MFC 240c scanner.I just finished writing a long dissertation on my problem with this scanning environment (which I will spare you). In a nutshell the resulting image, when printed, is smaller than the original document. In writing my dissertation for this post I determined that the cause of the issue is that xsane believes I am scanning an 8.5 x 14 inch document when I am in fact scanning an 8.5 x 11 letter. So the question is... can I change the size to 8.5 x 11? and if so, how? I have not found anything in the xsane Preferences.
today I upgraded via official testing repository Gnome to version 3.18. After this, icons on desktop and nautilus are bigger, than before. Next thing, gaps between icons are smaller than before. I tried change theme to default (Adwaita), then run gtk-update-icon-cache, but without result.
Normal view - icons are big for this view. URL....
Small view - icons are still big for this view. URL...
How can I change icons size and gaps size? Or is it bug for this version?
I have a Canoscan LiDE 30 scanner which works fine in Linux. I haven't used it in months, and never since moving from Jaunty x86_64 to Fedora 11 x86_64. This evening I suddenly need to scan two pages to send to someone via e-mail, and the recipient is desperate to receive them. Naturally, Xsane has decided this is the moment to screw me.
The problem: I cannot figure out how to tell Xsane that the page size is 8.5 11. It insists on scanning only the left side, 3.99 x 11. I cannot find a page size anywhere in any of the buttons.
In Preview I once got it to scan the entire page, but could not figure out how to save the image to file. Subsequently I have not been able to figure out how I did it. In any event, scanning from the small main window always scans 3.99 x 11. Adjusting the scan area manually in the Preview window allows me to change the size area in the small main window to 8.5 x 11, but when I then scan from the small main window it reverts to 3.99 x 11.
I have scanned the document a hundred times at least, each time trying different buttons, but nothing has succeeded in getting the full page.
I have 2 directories in my home folder that I would like to set a size limit on. The directories are ~/backup and ~/temp. Is there an easy way to limit the size of a directory without having to make partitions?
I'm running OpenSUSE 11.2 on my Acer Aspire One with a 9 inch LCD. I have configured the monitor in Sax2 to reflect the size and 1024x600 resolution, and as a result the desktop fonts are all sized correctly.
However, the fonts on the KDM log-in screen are too large, and I'd like to reduce them if possible. Looking in the KDE Control Center, I tried using the Login Manager utility to adjust the KDM theme, but any changes I made seemed to have no effect i.e. changing the font size, or even the overall theme itself, still resulted in KDM using the default green OpenSUSE theme with large fonts.
Does anyone know, therefore, how to adjust the KDM font size or DPI in OpenSUSE 11.2?
I have a few VMs set up with virtualbox but am finding that I'm now running out of space in some of the VMs. I really don't fancy creating new VMs and reinstalling and configuring them so is there an easy way to increase the size of the virtual disks?
I'm running OpenSuSE 11.3, upgraded from 11.1, with the Nvidia video driver. The font size for Yast, Firefox, and several other things is too small. I've tried changing it using the Appearance section of Personal Settings. That changes the font size in some contexts such as the window titles and task manager, but not in all contexts. In Firefox I've tried something similar, but it doesn't affect the font used in the tabs, function bar on the top, etc. The font in those parts of Firefox is the same as the one in Yast. So there's some other font setting around, but I haven't been able to find it. I've tried Google and SDB, but have no success searching there.
Running new installation of 11.3 with KDE Desktop. I have sorted out text appearance and size thanks to pwabrahams in another thread but I have a big problem with screen size/resolution.
In previous installation of 11.1 on the same machine I was able to change the resolution of the graphics in order to fit the windows on the screen more comfortably. I used to use something like 1240 x 1048 but in the System Settings > Computer Administration > Display the resolution is set at 832 x 624 and no higher resolutions are offered.
I cannot find out the details of the embedded graphics controller (10 year old Dell PE6300 server) but the system information report it as ATI Mach64 GI with swrast (No 3D acceleration) version 7.8.2. I have spent several hours reading the many pages on graphics in this forum and have concluded that I should probably be using a legacy driver but have no idea how to change the driver. Of course if it were possible to increase the resolution to 1240 X 1048 without recourse to changing driver that might do it if I knew what setting to tweak.
Is there a way to know the size of a package in YaST2?I only have 50MB left in my root partition / (Btw, my /home is in a separate partition.) and I'm looking for a way to selectively delete package depending on it's size. Also, when we "remove" a package in YaST2, is it "completely" removed? or is there some residual rpm left? (of course /home/configs would be kept as it is an expected behavior).
(I hope I am not repeating myself here, as I have tried to send this before but don't see the post): I now have upgraded to Suse 11.4 and I can't find how to set the console settings. It fills the whole screen, and the font is tiny. I am able to enlarge the font, but not to change the window size. Under 11.2, I was able to set the font, and an 80 characters per line, 40 lines window, and then make all that permanent.
