Ubuntu :: Scanner - When Try To Save Image To Desktop Or File/folder - Message - Child Process Error
Jan 23, 2011
I have ubuntu 10.04.1 and a H.P.psc 1311 all-in-one printer scanner.Printer works ok but when trying to scan,with xsane,it goes through the scanning process and an image of the document comes up on the screen.
When I try to save this image to desktop or file/folder whatever I get the message; "Child Process Error. Failed to execute OCR command:GOCR:no such file or directory."
Parent: chid_pid=4356 i=0 parent's pid=4355 This is child 4356 i=0 This is child 4357 i=1
I can observe instead of two children(as I expect) processes there are three. This is because child process 4356 creates its own child. Why all the messages of the type "This is child X i=Y" are concentrated one under another? How exactly fork works? Is affected by the fact that I have a dual-core processor?
I work with social sciences and I really need to use "R". R is a program used for statistics and it has a module called R-commander, which let things easier to deal and comes with several options as opening SPSS files (another statistical package commonly used by Windows users) and other things. THe problem is, as Rcmdr is a module for R, when I run it, it opens a terminal window and then he runs the module, which opens a friendly gui.
It worked okay and clean in Ubuntu 9.10, but for LTS 10.4 I keep getting an error, no matter I reinstall the modules or the entire program. I even installed Ubuntu again without upgrading it from karmic Koala. But there is the same error msg.
The error message says: "Error while creating a child process for this terminal". The strange part is there is no other msgs in the terminal or errorlogs. I really need to use this software for work.
I'm writing a sort of toy shell using fork() and execv(). It runs smoothly enough untill the user enters an invalid command at which point the program hangs, so I need a way to check if the program loaded using execv returned correclty or not in the parent process and kill it if it didntI tried writing stderr to a text file to see if something whent wrong but doesnt really work out. Try running ./digenv GDM -i -Q for instance. (-Q is an invalid option for grep which the program runs at a certain point).Heres the code:
I have a doubt about signals in C programming. I have done this little program to explain it. It creates a child process with fork and, when the child ends, receives the SIGCHLD signal and wait for its termination.Ok, quite easy, BUT when I execute this code the SIGCHLD signal is received twice, first as an error (returns -1) and the second one to finish the child process.I don't understand the meaning of the first received signal. Why is it generated? Is the code wrong? (if you add the SIGINT and press Ctrl+C during the execution it also receives two signals instead of one)
I was wondering if 7735, 7736, 7737, 7743 were really processes. Then I checked /proc, I could cd to /proc/7735, /proc/7736, etc, but I could not ls them out. I looked at the man page of "pstree", it says,
Child threads of a process are found under the parent process and are shown with the process name in curly braces, e.g.
So, what does all this mean? Does it mean that 7735, 7736, 7737, 7743 are just threads but not processes? If so, why could I cd to /proc/<id> but not see them in "ps -elf".
Terminal will not open Error message: There was an error creating the child process for this terminal Got this after doing a update to testing repo; to try to fix another issue with my media player sound not working.
Solved The_Source_HIM Just add yourself to 'tty' group and relogin
I just installed Maya 2009 on Fedora 13.It seemed to run the RPM install fine, but when I go to Applications > Graphics > MayaI an error:Could not launch 'Autodesk Maya 2009 (64-bit) Failed to execute child process "/usr/autodesk/aya/bin/maya"(no such file or directory)I browsed to this location in the file browser and there definately is a file called maya in "bin"
I need to disable file access (fopen, freopen, open etc) for application which is running under chroot jail and with restrictions (rlimit) via execv. Before that I redirected stdin/out to files within jail. I tried this:
Code: // Redirect stdin/stdout to files int fd = open (file_input, O_RDONLY); if (fd < 0) fatal_error ("input open failed!");
There seems to be a common solution to get the webcam working with Skype - rather than launching with Skype you launch with LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib32/libv4l/v4l2convert.so skype - so far so good. When I do this I get the error There was an error launching the application. Details: Failed to execute child process "LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib32/libv4l/v4l2convert.so" (No such file or directory). But I do have that directory and file on my system.
A ubuntu community doc talks about the terminal command sudo ld.so.preload-manager when I action this I get sudo ld.so.preload-manager /usr/lib/libv4l/v4l1compat.so [sudo] password for dad: sudo: ld.so.preload-manager: command not found
I am running F11 and I want to mount an FTP, but when I try to connect to an ftp server using Places -> Connect to Server, or the bookmarks I made I get an error that says 'Failed to execute child process "/usr/lib/firefox-3.5/firefox" (No such file or directory)' and sometimes it mounts anyway, but most the time it doesn't, and it never connects to the folder I asked it to, I just have to open the mount and navigate to it. I figure this happened because Firefox upgraded to 3.5.1 and the folder is now /usr/lib/firefox-3.5.1/firefox, but I don't know how to update this so that it looks in the right location.
Every time I try to empty the waste bin I get dolphin error - 'The file or folder /.local/share/Trash/files/IMGP1676.DNG does not exist'I tried to recreate the file 'IMGP1676.DNG' , deleted it i.e. sent i to the waste bin and then tried the empty waste bin again, although this time it was there and deleted it still reported the same error.du -h .local/share/Trash/files/ 12K .local/share/Trash/files
HP 5610 all in one device scanner settings please. The printer works fine, I have a problem getting the Scanner to work.
I am running Ubuntu Karmic on my Dual Core Desktop PC. When I run Xsane I get the preview window showing OfficeJet 5600 Series. I also get another little error window saying "Error during CMS conversion:Could not open Scanner ICM profile". It seems like Xsane recognises my HP 5610 All in One Printer/Scanner/Fax/Copier device but what is the error all about?
Have Karmic 9.10 ,Changed from Epson RX595 all in 1 (uses a ton of ink)Got the Lexmark Pro 805 3 in 1 because it says it supports Linux and the ink cartridge only cost $5 downloaded drivers and printer works but using Xsane Image Scanner error reports
'Lexmark_1_0_0:libsub/001/009': Device busy Using Image Scan - reports Could not send command to scanner Check the scanner status. The RX595's scanner drivers had to been manually instatlled,, in the Printer box the Lexmark shows available..
I've installed XSane Image Scanner. When I first opened it, it searched for my scanner and didn't give any error messages, and it had my scanner model in the heading of the scan window. But when I hit the scan button, it gave me saying, "Failed to start scanner: error during device I/O.I closed everything, and opened XSane again. This time it said there was no scanner available. The scanner is plugged into the USB port and uses that for both power and data. It's a Canoscan Model N650U.
Description of what the code does or what i intended to do:
1. Created a child process from parent process using 'fork()'
2. Sent a signal 'SIGALRM' from child process to parent process using 'sigqueue' function.
(The Third parameter of 'siqueue' function contains the message (message msg) which the child process wants to send to the parent process.'msg' is a stucture instance containing a) pid of child and b) string) 5. Print the 'msg' sent by child process inside the signal handler function 'sig_action_function' of the parent process I am getting some junk value when this line is executed
I expected to get the pid of child process, which the child process sent to parent process through the signal.
Failed to execute child process "gnome-help" (No such file or directory)I get this error when clicking on the Help button in, for example, the preferences dialog box like for the Time and Date panel.I cannot find anything in the Synaptic Pkg. Mgr. or Ubuntu Software Center that indicates "gnome-help".
I've installed MatLab in my Acer Aspire one netbook which runs karmic. Does anyone know what can cause this error message from appearing when i click on the icon? Could not launch 'MATLAB R2009a' Failed to execute child process "matlab" (No such file or directory)
I am trying to create a launcher in Fedora 13 which will run a simple script named proj4a. I run this script from the command line as follows: $ /home/enowak/proj4a >/home/enowak/proj4a_out where proj4a is an executable file in my home directory and the output goes into a file, proj4a_out, in my home directory. Everything works fine.
I created a launcher called Proj4a and in the command field I entered the following: '/home/enowak/proj4a >/home/enowak/proj4a_out' When I click on the launcher it comes back with the following: There was an error launching the application. Details: Failed to execute child process "/home/enowak/proj4a >/home/enowak/proj4a_out" (No such file or directory) I can't for the life of me figure out what is wrong here. Does anybody see what I'm missing?

Brand new to Linux. Sort of got thrown in front of the bus if you know what I mean. The company I work for has a Linux server running CentOS 5.4 Company uses Linux for their Email, FTP and Web Server. Have been here a few years dabbling in and out of Linux and now that the old Admin has left the company.....I need to learn it ASAP. The server has run pretty solid until today.
The email server runs SendMail and SpamAssasin. Received lots of complaints today regarding extra SPAM. Noticed that SpamAssassin was not running. Tried to restart it through the WebMin tools and got the following error: Starting spamd: child process  exited or timed out without signaling production of a PID file: exit 255 at /usr/bin/spamd line 2588.

I'm using Bluefish on my laptop to modify files on my desktop web server. The machines are networked with samba. Every time I save the files, I'm prompted with this window that says: File has been modified by another process. It gives me the option to cancel or overwrite. It's the only program that does this. I can click on overwrite and that works, but it's pretty annoying.
