OpenSUSE :: Printer Default Settings In KDE4?

Nov 2, 2010

how can I make KDE applications to use duplex printing as default? In CUPS, I changed the default settings to "long edge binding". It works in non-KDE Applications like Openoffice, but in e.g. Okular I always have to set it every time I print. I'm using Suse 11.3 with KDE4.

OpenSUSE :: Change Default Printer Settings In Firefox (GTK Applications Under KDE)?

Jul 25, 2010

I'm trying to figure out how to change the default settings for my printer under Firefox. I'm mainly interested in changing the default print resolution and the pages-per-side layout setting I can change the settings for all KDE applications through [URL], but I can't seem to be able to find the respective dialog for Firefox / GTK applications.

Firefox itself doesn't seem to have a dialog for the printer default settings; I've looked into about:config but all the value names are rather confusing.

My system environment:
openSUSE 11.3
KDE 4.4.4
Printer: Brother MFC-7420

Hardware :: Location Of Printer Default Settings?

Jun 12, 2010

Using openSUSE 11.2 & 11.3, where should I look for the default printer settings?

I have a Brother HL-1440 laser which for some reason prints right down to the bottom of the page cutting off the top part of the last line on that page. The default settings for the top and bottom margins are 0.50 inches. During installation using Yast2, the test page printed with correct borders.

When I change the bottom margin in options (from Ctrl-P), the page prints with the bottom margin set to 0.50 inch. The problem is I have to reset that margin every time I print a new document.

Where can I change that default setting? I've searched in /etc, /var, and /home but can't find it.

OpenSUSE :: Font Settings In Konsole (11.3, KDE4.4.4)?

Jan 2, 2011

Whenever I open a Konsole via the control panel widget the font in the console window is Monospace 8. Increasing the font via settings remains in place only for the time the window is active. When opening Konsole again the font is set to tiny Monospace 8 again. I have checked the settings in the *.profile files in ~ /.kde4/share/apps/konsole. They all contain my preferred font. Still, Monospace 8 comes up. Where else should I look. I have checked all *.rc files too, that are related to konsole.

OpenSUSE :: Firewall Settings For Shared Printer?

Apr 6, 2011

what I need to do to the firewall in order to make a shared printer available to other machines on my network?

I have the printer set up and have tested it with the firewall switched off, but as soon as I restart the firewall, the printer is inaccessible.

I thought that all traffic on the internal network was allowed, but it seems that I need to create an explicit rule in order to get the shared printer working. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to figure out how to do that yet.

OpenSUSE :: Set Default Settings For New Users?

Apr 14, 2011

I have about 5 users for our desktop computer, 1 adult, 3 kids and me (I don't count as an adult ).

There are some settings I want to have each of the environments default to, where they can then change them as they wish on their own.

Instead of setting them one-at-a-time, is there a way to modify the settings on the template of what goes into a user's /home directory when they are created?

Set it so when I add a person to the system theirdefault browser is set to Firefox starting home page is to our local server Open/Libre Office defaults to MS Office formats And others, less important ones like their pictures are placed in a centralized directory, not their own ~/Pictures.

After this initial setting, they are able to change any and all of these settings on their own, but to have these as default helps me set up their environments to get them started.

General :: How To Change Default Display Settings On OpenSuSe

Jan 30, 2010

I'm using OpenSUSE as a guest OS in VMware. Display settings are 1400x1050@60Hz but I want to change them for 1440x900. Using root account I go to Configure Desktop -> Display -> 1440x900. The first problem is that I can't choose 60Hz, only "Auto" or "0.0". I click Apply and the resolution changes, but if I reboot the computer or just logoff... resolution goes back to 1400x1050. My card and monitor properties: [URL]. Another strange thing is that if I click Ok on the Card and Monitor properties (changing from one resolution to another), I can choose to "Test" it, and xfine2 appears but... it ALWAYS says "1400x1050". An screenshoot of xfine2: [URL].

Slackware :: KDE4.4.5 Crashes When Starting Language Settings In Systemsettings?

Dec 3, 2010

I am trying to switch to KDE4.4.5 on my main machine. I installed the KDE packages and also the german language file. Everything works fine except the language settings. When I try to start it crash and a KDE crash dialog opens that gives this "developer information":


Application: System Settings (systemsettings), signal: Segmentation fault
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/share/gdb/auto-load/usr/lib/", line 9, in <module>
from gobject import register


It works on my netbook. I run on both machines Slackware 13.1. The only difference I can think of is that KDE was pre-installed on my netbook and I just upgraded it. On my main machine I installed all packages except the packages of kde and kdei.

OpenSUSE Network :: Unable To Ping The Default Gateway When Using Custom Settings - Unreachable Network

Jul 17, 2011

I installed openSUSE on one of my work system. The network port wasn't working when I was installing, but works fine now (checked in Windows). But for some reason, I am not able to configure the network. I used both Dynamic and Static IPs (both work fine in Windows) but still no go. I am using Yast Control Center for this purpose. I can't even ping the default gateway when I am using custom settings. When I use dynamic settings, it says Unreachable Network.

Ubuntu :: Replicate Printer Settings

Mar 19, 2011

Currently my partner is printing on my Epson Stylus Photo R265 from her XP system. I am attempting to convert her over to Lucid but every attempt so far to replicate the printer settings fails miserably.I had a look at Picasa which on first view appeared to give me exactly what I wanted being an A4 print without any border. However when I attempted to produce the final result it failed miserably, quality was wishy washy and displayed print lines across the paper.I raised the matter on the Picasa forum only to be informed that the method used by them is to forward the print to the printer. The responder assumed that it was via Cups and suggested that I look to the print settings in Ubuntu.

When I access the printer via the System settings all it gives me is connectivity details. Where should I be looking to access the settings where I can set the printing details. I am aiming to have the best photo quality on premium glossy paper and printing without borders.Is this possible to achieve ?? I have been round the houses with F-Spot, Photoprint, Shotwell etc etc. Please dont mention Gimp as it is well over my head. Surely there must be some way of setting print quality within Ubuntu. I feel that I am so near to my aim and would like to achieve it as even she who must be obeyed is getting cheesed off with windows.

Fedora Networking :: HPLIP Port Settings - Printer Not Recognized

Aug 5, 2010

I have recently installed Fedora 13 on my netbook. I wish to use my HP Officejet via the HPLIP utility. The problem with this is that when I have the firewall turned on, the printer is not recognised at all during setup. When the firewall is switched off, the printer is recognised. The printer in question is an HP Officejet 8500a which is connected via Ethernet cable to a wireless router. I would like to know if there are any network ports (that's used by HPLIP) that I could 'turn on' in the firewall that could let my computer recognise the printer.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Unable To Add USB Printer Via The YaST2 Printer Configuration Setup Tool In 11.3

Aug 26, 2010

I am unable to add my USB printer via the YaST2 Printer Configuration setup tool in openSUSE 11.3. The printer, a Dell Color Laser 1320c, was last used with openSUSE 11.2, and setup was entirely uneventful. No driver is provided by Dell, so I used the Fuji Xerox DocuPrint C525A Linux driver. The problem: To add a print queue in 11.3, a Connection must be specified (parallel, USB, network, etc). However, the configuration wizard fails to show the presence of the USB print device.


This printer was working just eight weeks ago under 11.2, and 11.3 is obviously able to detect its presence and identify it correctly. I feel certain the solution is simple, but I haven't found documentation that provides the answer.

It's not like I install often, but should suse 11.5 or 12 roll out, I'd like it to be a snappy upgrade.

General :: Obtaining Windows Printer Share SMB Settings (for Tsclient/rdesktop)?

Aug 22, 2011

I have access to a "virtual" Windows server terminal, which I can access through my Ubuntu Linux via tsclient or rdesktop. Additionally, there are printer shares on this network, which can be accessed from any Windows PC on the network (including the "virtual" terminals); lets say the address is [URL]. Now, I open \ in the "virtual" terminal in rdesktop (avoiding tsclient since it has a Bug #94743 in tsclient (Ubuntu): Terminal Server Client isn't able to copy to/from clipboard) - and I can see all printers fine.. However, when I'm on my Linux machine directly on the work network, I try and do something like:

$ ping
PING ( 56(84) bytes of data.
^C64 bytes from icmp_req=1 ttl=124 time=10.4 ms


Is it possible to retrieve the - let's call them "connection settings" - from the Windows terminal session, so I could replicate them under Linux when running smbclient? the IT department running these Windows servers is quite irritated by people using Linux; and will offer no support to those kinds of "customers". Furthermore, if obtaining those settings requires some installation on the client session, since I don't have permissions to install anything on the Windows terminal session.
