Debian Configuration :: Finger Print Reader?

Jan 22, 2010

debian unstable system i have a problem with thinkfinger. By default i should only swipe my finger and i don`t have to press enter after that. The problem is that now i have to press enter. For example in GDM if i enter my username i should swipe my finger and it should let me log in. Now after i swipe my finger nothing happenes unless i press enter.The problem may be related to the update of xorg. The same problem has been reported here: Is there anyone here who uses thinkfinger who could possibly have an idea why is this happening?I am using thinkfinger 3.0 on debian unstable with kernel 2.6.32-amd64, xorg 1.7.4, SGS Thomson Microelectronics Fingerprint Reader and GNOME. Other than the having to press enter i have no problems with thinkfinger. I am have patched thnikfinger with two patches:This patch solves the problem with thinkfinger taking too long to intialize:

Index: libthinkfinger/libthinkfinger.c
--- libthinkfinger/libthinkfinger.c(revision 118)

Debian Configuration :: USB Magnetic Stripe Reader Treated As A Second Keyboard?

Jul 26, 2011

I am new to Linux but have installed debian using the 'net method. The computer, in general, works fine. I have a USB keyboard which works OK and a Magnetic Stripe Reader which the OS thinks is another keyboard. If I open a terminal then swipe a credit card the data are transfered to the terminal screen at the cursor which I do not want.

How do I prevent the OS from grabbing the MSR? I want to use a program to address it as "/dev/hiddev0" or similar for read and write. I have tried "blacklist hiddev0" in /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf but to no avail.Regarding these forums, I, for the life of me, cannot understand why a search for USB turns up empty when I can see the term in several titles on the first page of topics.

i upgraded from f13 to f14 using preupgrade.

after reading this page, [URL], i created a 50-synaptics.conf file in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ and put this inside.

Slackware :: Adobe Reader 9 Crash On Print Dialog

Jul 30, 2010

Adobe Reader 9.3.3 on Slackware 13.1 (32 bit). This is the stand-alone reader, not the browser plugin. The Reader crashes the second time I open the print dialog. Even if I cancel, and do not actually print. For example: Open a PDF, File=>Print, Cancel, File=>Print. Then the Reader window is gone, with no message anywhere I can find.

Debian Configuration :: Print Jobs Disappear From Queue?

Jun 16, 2010

I have no idea what's going on. I've had this machine running for over a year, and it's been great. A month or so ago, I realized that jobs weren't going to the printer. When i VNC'd in, I noticed that print jobs would show up in the queue as "Processing" briefly, then disappear.

Bus 005 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub


I've even reinstalled the OS (not just for this reason) to no avail. Printer is dete cted without issue, I just can't use it.

Debian Configuration :: Cannot Print With HP2600n Network Printer

Jan 11, 2011

I run Debian Squeeze but I have the system installed step by step from minimal installation. So I'm not sure if I have forgotten basic packages important for printing. I open system-config-printer to add a new network printer. In the list of the Network Printers after some seconds it appears the HP Color LaserJet 2600n. I chose it and hit Forward. A new window opens that says that system is searching for Drivers and finally I'm ready for printing.

Debian Configuration :: CUPS Raw Print Queues Not Working?

Apr 16, 2011

I am trying to set up a print server here on a Squeeze system using the stock debian CUPS package. It seems that since Apple has bought this package, it has caused me nothing but grief. I have set up two different USB printers with raw print queues, and every time I send a print job to either of them, the job disappears into thin air, with no error output. In fact, when I look at the queue, it says the job was completed successfully. I look at the logs, and there is no output indicating any issues. Just for kicks, I reconfigured one of the printers to use a linux driver, and it printed just fine (a little slow, but fine). I set it back to raw, and the jobs disappear again into oblivion.

I have done this many times in the past, and never had any issues -- I even had this very same printer set up that way about a year ago, and it worked great. The only noteworthy thing that seems to have changed is that there are no longer any files called "mime.types" and "mime.convs". It seems they have been replaced by "raw.types" and "raw.convs". The contents of these two files are as follows:

raw.types: application/octet-stream

OpenSUSE :: Evince Or Acrobat Reader - Default Pdf Reader?

Aug 31, 2010

I have openSUSE 11.2, 64 bits. I use Evince from the very beginning. Since a few weeks, when I want to open a .pdf file, Acrobat Reader appears and reads my file. It seems to have become the default reader now. However, I never wanted to change from Evince :this simple program is well enough for me. I tried various ways, but I can't define Evince as my default .pdf reader. How can I make Evince to become my default reader again please ?

Fedora Hardware :: Set Up OS To Print To Configuration?

Jun 3, 2010

I'm trying to set up Fedora to print to my Canon i560 printer which is connected to a Netgear PS121v1 print server. The PS121 is just a box that the printer is plugged into via USB and which plugs into my Netgear wireless router via a CAT5 cable. This allows the printer to be shared among all of the computers in my house including several laptops via wireless connection. My Fedora system is also a laptop which is connected wirelessly to the router.

So far I haven't figured out how to set up Fedora to print to this configuration. Further complicating things, it appears that the Canon i560 doesn't have a Linux driver. Just wondering if anyone else has tried to use a shared printer configuration like this and has any advice on how to make it work (if it can work at all).

Debian :: Package Management - Can't Install Its Nb Pdf Reader / Fix It?

Aug 10, 2011

I am new to Debian but a long term user of various other Linux distros, most commonly Ubuntu at home and Xubuntu for my old work computer. I tried Debian 6 LXDE the other day on the older PC, from a live LXF disc. It picked up all my hardware automatically and was so stable (more so than the Xubuntu LXDE distro on the HD) that I decided to install it.

Now that it is on the HD it is still very stable, but I am struggling with package management and installing "stuff".

I am fairly comfortable with the CLI and have managed to get myself into the sudoers group, install grub and add the old Xubuntu to grub manually (I was not impressed that Debian didn't pick up the other two distros on the machine, even after a grub install and update grub and all the other tricks I could think of).

Anyway, back to package mngt:

First, why is there no pdf viewer/reader by default? How do you start building if you can't read the many helpful articles in pdf?

But more annoying, when I try to install pdfedit, epdfview, evince, okular, pdf-viewer, osso-pdf-viewer or kpdf (at least one of which MUST work in Debian LXDE) using "apt-get install" or "aptitude install", as root or as sudo in the Terminal, why do I get "Couldn't find any package whose name or description matched" "Couldn't find package" or "Unable to locate package"? I can't even install synaptic to help!

Then I found that my sources.lst only listed the install CD as a repository (how stupid is that?) so added some repositories to it (eg deb stable main contrib non-free) and did a sudo apt-get update. And apt STILL can't find anything.

And what is that Debian Installer in the >Menu>System Tools? It asks for a password then nothing opens that I can detect. Is there a GUI for package mngt?

Debian Hardware :: Card Reader Won't Mount?

Aug 4, 2011

I've recently purchased a Lenovo Ideapad z470, and installed Debian Wheezy amd64 on it first thing. I was pleased to find that almost everything worked "out of the box." The only problems were the hotkeys and the card reader. I don't care if the hotkeys ever work, but the non-working card reader is more aggravating than I anticipated. I would be most obliged if anyone could lend a hand.So, first things first, here's the output of uname -a:Linux cerulean 2.6.39-2-amd64 #1 SMP Tue Jul 5 02:51:22 UTC 2011 x86_64 GNU/LinuxHere's the syslog output upon inserting an sd card into reader:

Debian Hardware :: Internal SD Reader On Acer Aspire One?

Jun 7, 2011

I've recently acquired a little 10" netbook (Acer Aspire One D255) and am running Debian squeeze on it. It runs great except for the internal SD card reader, which doesn't do anything. If I have a USB card reader handy then it works fine, but it would be nice to have the internal card reader working if possible.

/var/log/messages says this:usb 1-5: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 3
usb 1-5: New USB device found, idVendor=0cf2, idProduct=6250
usb 1-5: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=4
usb 1-5: Product: UB6250       
usb 1-5: Manufacturer: ENE FlashBut no device is created and nothing can be mounted.

Doing a little searching reveals many similar complaints from last year, without particularly satisfactory solutions, but I can't find anything more recent. Does anyone know if there's a Debian fix for this yet? By which I mean a simple fix involving adding a module package or maybe upgrading to a wheezy kernel or something like that?

General :: Disable Built In Card Reader In Debian?

Dec 11, 2010

I am trying to disable the built-in card reader in my MBP (5,3) running Debian testing. I've noticed that powertop lists the card reader as a major contributor of wake up events and would like to disable it as I rarely need to read SD cards.

I found this with "dmesg":

scsi 6:0:0:0: Direct-Access APPLE SD Card Reader 1.00 PQ: 0 ANSI: 0

and this from "sg_scan -i":

/dev/sg2: scsi6 channel=0 id=0 lun=0 [em]
APPLE SD Card Reader 1.00 [rmb=1 cmdq=0 pqual=0 pdev=0x0]

I don't know where to find the device in /proc and there are no modules loaded for this device (I'm guessing it has support compiled into the kernel).

So, ideally, I would like to be able to enable/disable this device without a kernel recompile. Is this possible?

General :: CUPS Client Configuration For Printing To Windows Print Server

May 24, 2011

Since last few weeks i am struggling to setup printer connected to print server.

Here is the setup that i have:

I have Red Hat Linux machine from which i want to issue print jobs.

I have Windows Print Server having multiple printers connected to it.

I am able to print jobs from Windows client to any of these printers. But i am not able to print from Red Hat Linux. (i have verified that i can print using smbclient utility, but based on my reading, CUPS API could be used from application to discover, print and issue print jobs.)

I am not able to get the correct configuration for setting up CUPS client.

CentOS 5 :: Get Kubuntu's Print Configuration Tool To See My Network CUPS Server?

Sep 27, 2009

I am demo'ing Kubuntu 9.04 workstation to a customer. He has a CentOS 5.3 server (my doing). On it is our CUPS Network file server. Everyone (65 of them) print to our network printer through it using LPR/LPD (and sometimes Samba).

Problem: when Kubuntu's Print Configuration Tool went looking for printers, it found every network printer's IP address, but missed my CUPS printer server. What did I do wrong on one or both ends (I have control over both).
