Ubuntu :: Ubuntu 9,10 System/administration/printing Option Disappeared

Feb 16, 2010

I used the system/administration/printing option to set up a printer (Lexmark X4650).

The exact driver wasn't available, so I chose one 'close' to mine, but it wouldn't print.

I followed various threads to try to sort this, but now the system/administration/printing option has disappeared.

I can go in to [url] and set up a printer again, but this still doesn't work and the option in system/administration/printing still isn't there!

Whilst I see that there are issues with some Lexmark printers, which I can fire-fight, it's the fact that

I've obviously done something to delete the Printing option that is the issue!

Ubuntu :: System->Administration->Printing , Menu Missing?

Sep 15, 2010

Well like the title Implies, In my Administration menu in Gnome I don't have a "Printing" option. So I can't search for/install printers right now.I'm running 10.04 Server. I installed the gnome-desktop-environment package to get a GUI up and running for manipulating the filesystem, But not all the menu's I was expecting appeared. Is this because I used the gnome-desktop-environment instead of the ubuntu-desktop-environment package? ecause I have two PC's setup next to each other. One using the ubuntu-desktop-environment, and one using the gnome-desktop-environment package and the two desktops are clearly different.All I want to know is how to add the Printers menu to my PC running the gnome-desktop-environment package. I already looked at gconf-editor and the printing menu isn't hidden or anything, it's just not there. And me being a new user to Linux, I don't know how else to get to those printer abilities without the GUI

Ubuntu :: KDE Loggin Option Disappeared

May 13, 2011

I installed kde and xfce to try them out (explained further in my other threads - almost a prequel to this if you like) and they were fine and dandy. Decided I wanted to lose xfce and did that (as explained in said previous threads) via synaptics.However, not only did it get rid of xubuntu, it got rid of the option to loggin on kubuntu as well (which I didn't want to do - I decided I wanted to keep kubuntu). I'm pretty sure that kde is still here on my computer because when I boot my computer with ubuntu, I get the kubuntu loading screen with blue background. I want to be able to log in with kde but I don't have the option at loggin.

Ubuntu :: LPR Printing With Set Resolution Option (CLI)?

Apr 9, 2010

I have a shell script set up to print a test page on a couple of my rarely-used large format printers. These are expensive boys, and if they are left unused for too long, their cartridges dry up. So once a week, cron runs the script and everyone is happy. Except I'd like to change the print resolution for one of the printers. lpr does not seem to have an option to send a command to the printer for setting resolution. Is there another command that I could use under Ubuntu within Linux to do what lpr does, but also offers the setting of print resolution?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Audio - Analog 5.1 Option Has Disappeared

Jul 18, 2010

I could effortlessly set my output in Sound Preferences to be Analog 5.1. Now I just discovered that this option has disappeared, for no apparent reason. I haven't been messing around with any settings, other than installing updates as they've been rolled out. Would be nice to have 5.1 surround back as an option.

CentOS 5 :: Administration --> Printing Dialog Freezes Centos 5.6

Aug 10, 2011

if I choose Administration --> Printing and then try to select a printer from the list of available printers (to delete a printer for example), the dialog
freezes and needs to be terminated forcibly. It seems like I can hit "New Printer" and add a printer without anything freezing. All of the printers on the list are
network printers.

Possibly related- if I use evince to view and document and then attempt to print by going File --> Print, it gives me a printer selection box which also freezes if I try to choose a printer from the list.

Ubuntu :: Can't Access System>Administration>Time And Date

May 13, 2010

Lucid 10.04, auto upgraded from 9.10, accessed through NoMachine NX from my MacBook Pro 10.6 system.

When I try to access the time settings through the System > Administration > Time and Date menu, all I get is the greyed-out display with the message Not authotized to make changes at the bottom.

With other administration functions, I am asked for sudo-style authorization with my password. That doesn't happen with Time and Date.

Ubuntu Installation :: How To Add Item To System > Administration Menu

Jun 20, 2010

I just upgraded my Ubuntu 9.10 to Ubuntu 10.04. Part of the Ubuntu 9.10 installation was GParted (version 0.4.5) and I saw, after upgrading to Ubutnu 10.04, there was a more recent version available: 0.5.1.

After installing that version, GParted was still part of the System > Administration menu (just as it was before).

But then I saw the version 0.6.0 of GParted was recently released and there was also a .deb distro available.

After downloading and installing the 0.6.0 version of GParted, the item GParted disappeared from the System > Administration menu and appeared in another menu (Applications > System Tools).

My question: how can I get GParted back as part of the Systems > Administrations menu?

Ubuntu :: Duplicate Entries In System -> Administration Menu

Nov 22, 2010

I just upgraded from 10.04 to 10.10. I originally had installed the nvidia drivers using the bash script from nvidia's website. This time around I used the ones from synaptic. However now when I go and look in System -> Administration there are 2 entries for "NVIDIA X Server Settings". The first one has the NVIDIA logo, the other one has a grey question mark. Does anyone know why there are 2 entries and how I can remove one of them?

Ubuntu :: Can't Access System -> Administration - Always Says My Password Is Wrong

Jan 7, 2011

I did a fresh install on this computer, ubuntu 10.10 server then put desktop on top of it.

I can run sudo -i, enter password, gain root access, but when i click system -> administration and it asks for my password, it always says my password is wrong.

I ran update manager, and my password worked fine there.

When i click system administration and run a task, the password screen looks different

Little more digging shows, it only occures on screens that use the login type of,

Enter the administrative password:

It doesn't even give me options for what user to use. And I am using the account created on install.

OpenSUSE :: No Color Option And Non Double Sided Printing

Apr 6, 2011

I have a Lexmark 736DN printer (color, 2-sided printing). With openSUSE 11.3, there was non specific driver to pick during printer installation: I picked up "Lexmark C772dn Foomatic/Postscript" and everything was fine (at least I didn't notice problems). With openSUSE 11.4, there's no such a driver! Even more, the list of drivers for lexmark is a lot, lot shorter than the list present in 11.3. C772dn is not present so i picked up "Lexmark 4076 - CUPS + Gutenprint v5.2.6": but there is no color option and non double sided printing! what's up? Maybe I miss a rpm with printer's drivers (not installed by default)?

Debian :: System Administration Menu - Just Get Login Screen

Jul 11, 2011

I've just started using Debian having previously used Ubuntu. With Ubuntu, under the System->Administration menu I get lots of options (e.g. Network Tools, Printing, Services...) to select from, but with Debian I just get Login Screen. Do I just get the one option because this is the only thing installed, or do I need to do something to enable other admin options?

Fedora Networking :: 13 - Get The Samba GUI Back Under: System->Administration

Oct 3, 2010

I've been using samba without issue on Fedora 11 (x86_64) and decided to upgrade to F13 on one of my machines. Upon install I installed samba with the command: Code: sudo yum install samba samba-client cifs-utils I can now see the smb.conf file and could probably use samba via command line; but, I would really like to use the GUI to configure samba as I have in the past. The problem is, there is no samba gui. How do I get the samba GUI back under: System->Administration where it usually is?
