Ubuntu :: SANE / HPLIP And F300 Hangs With Large Scan Areas

May 5, 2011

SANE + HPLIP 3.11.3a-1 + Tomato v1.28.8754 ND USB Std + Hp Deskjet F380 (F300 series) only works with small scan areas. This error is affecting SANE running on my tomato router, this affects all computers that try to use that scanner, regardless of platform, in fact, it affects scans originating from the router itself. I believe that it could also happen on ubuntu if I had the same configuration as the router, it seems to be an error that would happen on any platform with the same SANE/hplip settings and hardware (HP Deskjet F380). The problem is also related to DPIs, but I can't manage to get one full page with 75 DPI, which is the lowest possible. If I get a small area (around 1/4 of the full glass) it will scan at some times.

If I increase the DPI, it won't scan. I will get an Error during device I/O, even if I try to scan directly from scanimage. I would like to have the scanner function of my AiO printer working, at least to scan the full glass in low resolutions (<=150). I can't load previews as well. I thought it could be a memory problem, since it does scan small areas, but it is not, in fact, the memory usage doesn't increase much during the scan, I even created a 128MB swap partition in my flash drive (was afraid of doing so, since it would wear it quickly, will probably remove now), but it didn't change anything, it still doesn't scan with more than 55% of the router's memory (16MB) free and more than 97% of the swap memory free.

Here are my configuration files:



service saned
port = 6566
socket_type = stream
server = /opt/sbin/saned
protocol = tcp
user = root
group = root
wait = no
disable = no

Everything is configured properly, I got the dbus and cups installed since both are required for hplip to work properly. Here are some other files, that shows what happens:

# sane-find-scanner will now attempt to detect your scanner. If the result is different from what you expected, first make sure your scanner is powered up and properly connected to your computer.

Ubuntu :: 10.04 Hangs During Large File Transfers?

Aug 1, 2010

I recently built a home media server and decided on Ubuntu 10.04. Everything is running well except when I try to transfer my media collection from other PCs where it's backed up to the new machine. Here's my build and various situations:

Intel D945GSEJT w/ Atom N270 CPU
2GB DDR2 SO-DIMM (this board uses laptop chipset)
External 60W AC adapter in lieu of internal PSU
133x CompactFlash -> IDE adapter for OS installation
2(x) Samsung EcoGreen 5400rpm 1.5TB HDDs formatted for Ext4

Situation 1: Transferring 200+GB of files from an old P4-based system over gigabit LAN. Files transferred at 20MBps (megabytes, so there's no confusion). Took all night but the files got there with no problem. I thought the speed was a little slow, but didn't know what to expect from this new, low-power machine.

Situation 2: Transferring ~500GB of videos from a modern gaming rig (i7, 6GB of RAM, running Windows7, etc etc). These files transfer at 70MBps. I was quite impressed with the speed, but after about 30-45 minutes I came back to find that Ubuntu had hung completely.

I try again. Same thing. Ubuntu hangs after a few minutes of transferring at this speed. It seems completely random. I've taken to transferring a few folders at a time (10GB or so) and so far it has hung once and been fine the other three times.Now, I have my network MTU set from automatic to 9000. Could this cause Ubuntu to hang like this? When I say hang I mean it freezes completely requiring a reboot. The cursor stops blinking in a text field, the mouse is no longer responsive, etc.

Fedora Networking :: 12 Hangs On Transfer Of Large Files?

Dec 9, 2009

I have Fedora 12 (with all the latest patches, including the kernel) installed on a new Supermicro SYS-5015A-H 1U Server [Intel Atom 330 (1.6GHz) CPU, Intel 945GC NB, Intel ICH7R SB, 2x Realtek RTL8111C-GR Gigabit Ethernet, Onboard GMA950 video]. This all works great until I try to transfer a large file over the network, then the computer hard locks, forcing a power-off reset.

Some info about my setup:

[root@Epsilon ~]# uname -a
Linux Epsilon #1 SMP Fri Dec 4 00:43:59 EST 2009 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
[root@Epsilon ~]# dmesg | grep r8169
r8169 Gigabit Ethernet driver 2.3LK-NAPI loaded


I'm pretty sure this is an issue with the r8169 driver (what I'm seeing is somewhat reminiscent of the bug reported here). The computer will operate fine for days as a (low volume) web server, and is reasonably stable transferring small files, but as when as I try to transfer a large file (say during a backup to a NAS or a NFS share), the computer will hard lock (no keyboard, mouse, etc.) at some point into the transfer of the file. It doesn't seem to matter how the file is transferred (sftp, rsync to NFS share, etc.).

OpenSUSE Network :: 11.3 NFS Client Hangs On Large File Transfer?

Jan 2, 2011

When accessing an NFS mount for a large (200MB+) file transfer, the transfer starts rapidly, then becomes slower and slower until it hangs. On several occasions, it has frozen the client machine. Both client and server are set to default to nfs version 3. Slowdown and hang also occur when connecting to FreeBSD NFS mounts.

Presumably (I hope), there is some sort of configuration for the client that needs to be set. what should be changed in the configuration? This worked out of the box in OpenSUSE 11.0.

CentOS 5 :: 5.2 Installation Hangs On Server With Large Number Of Drives?

Apr 6, 2009

I am attempting to upgrade a system from 4.7 to 5.2 using a (now) DVD drive attached to the onboard IDE. Originally I had tried using a remote NFS image and a USB stick but I thought maybe there was a problem with the image. I can get up to the point of the installation of selecting the keyboard for the system and then it freezes and never goes any further. It doesn't appear to be a kernel panic since I can still switch between consoles.

I've got an MSI K9NGM2-FID with 14 drives in it. It serves as a file server for our backup server. It's got a secondary 4 port Silicon Image SII 3114 SATA card using the sata_sil module, and an old IDE Promise FastTrak TX2000. Technically I could have 16 drives but the 750W PS is walking the fine line on tripping it's self-breaker with the 14 drives and 7 fans. I would like to NOT have to disconnect all of this to do the upgrade.

I thought maybe that running the install using the "noprobe" option would help so it didn't detect and load the modules for the Silicon Image or the Promise cards and detect all of the drives but it still gets stuck on the step after selecting the keyboard. The installation info console and the dmesg console don't really provide any useful information. The installation console says:

INFO : moving (1) to step welcome
INFO : moving (1) to step language
INFO : moving (1) to step keyboard
INFO : moving (1) to step findrootparts

And the last lines of the dmesg console says:

<6>device-mapper: multipath: version 1.0.5 loaded
<6>device-mapper: multipath round-robin: version 1.0.0 loaded
<6>device-mapper: multipath emc: version 0.0.3 loaded

Is there a hidden "debug" option that will turn on a lot of extra logging?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Large *.mp4 Files In Gtkpod - Hangs At "Copying Tracks" At 0%

Jul 27, 2010

I am dual booting XP and Ubuntu 10.04, but in the future I will be getting a new machine and I will only be running Ubuntu and won't have access to iTunes. Because I have an iPod Touch, I have been trying to find workarounds for syncing everything that iTunes took care of in the past. One problem I have is managing movies. I have looked through various media players/iPod management tools (Amarok, Rhythmbox, gtkpod) and I am using Rhythmbox to sync my music and and attempting to use gtkpod to sync my movies.

gtkpod is able to sync songs (Tested with a few minute test clip) and short *.mp4 files (15mb I know for sure from test). I am unable, however, to get it to sync a movie (~700mb) I am able to drag it onto my iPod in gtkpod, but when I try to save the changes and write the files, it hangs at "Copying Tracks" at 0%. It eventually crashes during the couple times I have tried to wait it out. So this being my situation, my question is, is there a size limit to the *.mp4 files I can sync to my iPod Touch via gtkpod? is there any other tools that you know of that I can sync videos to my iPod with?

Ubuntu :: Weak Colors In Text Areas / Fix It?

I upgraded from 9.10 to 10.04 and now the colors are off. I tried different themes which made some of the tabs more readable, but I don't see how to fix it. Things like background colors in Firefox are too light to see. The same for the grid lines in OpenOffice.org Spreadsheets. Form fields are not outlined. If you don't know where they are you have to hunt by dragging the pointer over the area.
Images look OK.

Ubuntu :: Seems Slow In Some Areas - High CPU Usage?

Jun 15, 2010

I've been using Ubuntu consistently for about three days now. I really, really love the interface and how everything works and all that, but I've been having a couple of weird problems with speed.

Graphics things seem to work really well. When I go into the overview of all my workspaces, it's instant and looks great. The problem is when I open and use some applications.

For example, when I open up the software center, it takes longer than it did the first time to start up. Also, when I drag windows off from being maximized, it takes literally about five seconds for it to show up as being dragged around by my mouse.

When I look at the system monitor, about 20% of my CPU cores are constantly being used. That's 20% each. I have a 3-core CPU, could that be the problem?

Another example: when I went to ..... just now, it would take a second for any volume changes in the video to register.

And I also have smooth scrolling in firefox, but it's very unresponsive now. It's slow as all hell. Even notifications are showing up more slowly.

So, what's the deal? What could I have done wrong?

CPU: AMD Phenom II X3 2.8Ghz
GPU: ATI Radeon HD 4860 1gb
RAM: 4gb

One more thing: I have really bad screen tearing when I try to move windows around, as if there isn't any vsync on. Where can I turn it on or fix this?

I'm still pretty new to Ubuntu and Linux, but I'm an advanced computer user. Since I feel linux is killing my CPU I think I'm going to boot back into Windows 7 for now, but if I can fix this problem I think I want to keep Ubuntu as my main OS after this, having Windows for games, unless I can get Wine to work right with them.

Ubuntu :: Screen Goes Teal I Areas That Were Once White.

Feb 16, 2011

I know this is Ubuntu forums, but my other laptop has Ubuntu and I know this is a community full of very smart people (got Ubuntu help the other day).Anyway , this laptop's problem is, the screen goes teal i areas that were once white. Now, originally I thought something was broken, but now my theory is it's a loose connection. On the bottom left of the screen there is a thick black cable that leads up behind the screen and connects with that duct tape looking thing. If I simply lift up on the black cable, the screen goes back to normal.

Programming :: Are There Any Other Areas Where C Still Prevails?

Sep 22, 2010

I'm relatively young and equally ignorant as to C or C++ (or any other language for that matter). I've started learning C, but come across a view that C is getting old/obsolete, etc. and If someone just starts out they should start with C++.

I know that most of the linux kernel is written in C and so are a lot of linux tools. Are there any other areas where C still prevails?The reason I'm asking is that I'm now not sure which one to learn. I know that you'll answer: depends what you want to do. The problem is that I don't really know what one can do with C, as opposed to C++.

Ubuntu :: Fonts Are Just Too Large And Large

how big and widespaced the fonts on Clementine playlist are and how good they look on the appmenu (where my mouse pointer is). This is not because Clementine is QT4, I've got the same problem with Chrome, Opera etc. I've been messing with system-settings (KDE settings tool) a day before the fonts become that widespaced in order to make my KDE apps look more native on my GNOME, but I haven't touched the fonts settings there.

I installed debian etch, it runs and does connect to the internet fine through a linksys router...the linksys router is connected to my cable modem...now..

I just registered for a domain name (ex. mydomainname.org) with Verio....this is where I am stuck.

I installed apache 2, a web server, file server (all seem to work) I need to know what files I need to configure to have my machine actually BE that domain name.

Ex. my linksys DHCP IP addresses, the linksys gets an IP from the cable modem...my yquestion is ONCE I register a domain name with verio...how do I configure my end so it "knows" I am that respective domain name...I think I need to configure the following, but knot sure how to do it: resolv.conf, hosts, and interface?

$ sane-find-scanner
# sane-find-scanner will now attempt to detect your scanner. If the
# result is different from what you expected, first make sure your
# scanner is powered up and properly connected to your computer.

# No SCSI scanners found. If you expected something different, make sure that

# Your USB scanner was (probably) detected. It may or may not be supported by
# SANE. Try scanimage -L and read the backend's manpage.

# Not checking for parallel port scanners.
# Most Scanners connected to the parallel port or other proprietary ports
# can't be detected by this program.
# You may want to run this program as root to find all devices. Once you
# found the scanner devices, be sure to adjust access permissions as

However, when I run scanimage -L I get:
$ scanimage -L
No scanners were identified. If you were expecting something different, check that the scanner is plugged in, turned on and detected by the sane-find-scanner tool (if appropriate). Please read the documentation which came with this software (README, FAQ, manpages). So sane sees the scanner, but then scanimage says it can't find any scanners. If I run scanimage -L as root it does seem to find the scanner.. so its a permissions problem somewhere.. I will keep investigating....

OpenSUSE :: Any Changes From 11.1==>11.2 Affecting SANE Support Via USB?

Feb 4, 2010

I've been running 64-bit openSUSE 11.2 since shortly after it's release, on a quad core AMD Phenom based machine, using KDE as the Desktop. I have a USB-attached "multi-function" printer/scanner/etc., which worked fine with XSane under 11.1. On the same machine, with 11.2, I can still get a scan preview. But when I try a full scan, shortly after it starts, the progress bar stops, then XSane complains about an I/O error.

When I update openSUSE versions, if I can, I keep the old version completely intact, on the same machine. This includes the /home partition, I don't overwrite it. Sure it's a good deal more work to copy over the numerous files needed, but if there are any problems with the new software, it's extremely helpful to have a completely intact old environment for reference. I was able to do this, while updating 11.1 ==> 11.2. Booting the old 11.1 system on the same machine, I haven't encountered any scanning problems.

I haven't given a lot of details, because it's the same hardware, that should "in theory", mostly eliminate the hardware as a possible source of the problem. I'm hoping the problem can be resolved by focusing on any changes in SANE support, or XSANE itself, for USB attached scanners. It could be unrelated, but messages such as these are in /var/log/messages on the 11.2 sys:

Feb 3 17:45:03 toe-heaven kernel: [ 5881.313532] usb 3-1: usbfs: interface 0 claimed by usblp while 'xsane' sets config #1
Feb 3 17:45:03 toe-heaven kernel: [ 5881.313560] usb 3-1: usbfs: process 8214 (xsane) did not claim interface 1 before use

If XSane is doing things in the wrong order, I'm wondering if it would be a problem especially for a combined printer/scanner, or would the problem still occur if the printer and scanner were two physically separate devices? I checked and there are similar messages in /var/log/messages with 11.1. But if it is an error in the sequence in which XSane does things, could it somehow cause problems under 11.2, yet not 11.1? I tried to find anything which might be related to USB device handling, which perhaps could interact. I came across messages such as these in 11.2, but not 11.1:

Feb 4 15:15:10 toe-heaven udev-configure-printer: add /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:02.0/usb3/3-1/3-1:1.0/usb/lp1
Feb 4 15:15:10 toe-heaven udev-configure-printer: parent devpath is /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:02.0/usb3/3-1

Is USB printer handling somehow different under 11.2? With a combined printer/scanner, could there be an interaction? I did some experimenting. I kind'a thought a scan preview was just a scan at low res. So I tried to do full scans, starting with the lowest res., and increasing. I was able to do successful full scans at 100 or 150. But from 200 on up, the higher the res., the shorter the time to get an I/O error. I'd normally use 600 or above, to get what I feel is a good looking scan. At 600 the error report is practically immediate. It's almost as if the error only occurs above a certain threshold, of amount of data per unit time. I should mention, although it's a color scanner, I'm scanning a black and white doc., so using that mode of XSane.

Then I changed the video driver of Smplayer from vdpau to xv but the same thing.

Then I tried playing those videos with vlc but those white things appeared there as well.

Here is an example of the problem. I have circled the areas with green.

Code: Select allSepĀ  6 08:03:34 MyComputer kernel: [ 1003.788502] colord-sane[3381]: segfault at 21 ip b4de95ba sp b5609fb8 error 6 in libdbus-1.so.3.7.2[b4dbe000+4a000]

I have read a number of bug reports regarding this issue and it appears to go back about two years. It was supposedly fixed but that does not appear to be the case unless there is something peculiar with my Wheezy 7.8 installation.I just found this on a Ubuntu bug report. It is related to a colord-sane but not necessarily exactly the same as what I am experiencing.This is a libsane bug, not a colord bug. If you want to to work around it, change /etc/colord.conf to have UseSANE=false
