Hi i am looking at buying a ASUS K52JR-SX052X i3-350M 2.26GHz, 4GB, 320GB, 15.6" WXGA LED, HD5470M 1GB, 11N, BT. or a ASUS G51JX-HD-SX232V i7-720QM, 1.6GHz, 6GB, 500GB, 15.6" WXGA LED, GTS360M 1GB, BT.
I know there can be issues with graphics cards and would like to know if anyone has a site that i could look at to see if these cards work with Ubuntu 10.04.
Has anyone ever managed to get SCO binaries to run under Centos 5? I have an application which runs on SCO and SCO is becoming difficult to support so I want to copy the binaries over onto Linux and run them.
I was able to get my Epson Stylus NX510 printer up and running (after much issue), but I can't get the scanner working. I'm on a laptop, and the printer/scanner is wifi enabled and broadcasts with its own IP address. I can print with no problem, but xsane and simple scan don't recognize the scanner. I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx.
Recently when emailing my resume in openoffice .doc format some recipients are complaining that it is unreadable. This is bad for obvious reasons. I have no idea what is going on in the ms windows/office world. I run linux exclusively.
If I can't use openoffice formatted resumes, does anyone have suggestions for sending a resume that most recipients can read?
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.
After downloading and installing iscan and run it i see this message:
Could not send command to scanner. Check scanner's status.
After command sane-find-scanner:
And this message is result of scanimage command:
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).
I've been using a Nikon Coolscan 4000ED on Ubuntu for a couple of years via Vuescan with no problems at all.
The other day I upgraded to 10.10 and Vuescan can no longer see the scanner. So I tried X-Sane and Simplescan and they both say there is no scanner even though it's connected and switched on. So for some reason, Ubuntu 10.10 cannot see the scanner or perhaps the IEEE connection.
I am delving into the world of scanners for the first time. With 9.04, my Cannon CanoScan LiDE 25 works without a hitch in ScanLite and Scanner Utility but not in XSane. I am able to scan photos and such and get good quality images. I have an infrequent need to make copies of pieces of paper and have been experimenting a bit trying to make my scanner and printer act like a copier. what type of images to take and how to print them?
I've recently installed Karmic Koala (64 bit version) on my pc via a live cd.I still can't get my epson scanner to work so my plan was to get VirtualBox and then run xp inside Karmic.My problem is that my pc doesn't have an internet connection.
Having spent hours and hours on this, I'm ready to give up on Ubuntu. Whenever I run Xsane or Vuescan, I get a message telling me there are no devices available. Op system is Hardy.HP J6480 is conected to network hub.Vuescan works fine under Windows 2000. Printing works fine from UbuntuI have repeatedly installed HPLIP.I have run hp-check and loaded all the dependencies it told me it couldn't find, reducing the number of errors from 9 t(mostly compile time) to 3.Hp-check finds the printer ok, but tells me no scanners were identified.The silly thing is that before I re-installed Ubuntu I managed, somehow, after a lot of work, to use Xsane.
I've been using Ubuntu 9.10 'in anger' for a couple of weeks now and overall I'm impressed. However, a couple of days ago my old Epson C46 (which had been working fine under Karmic) died, and I had a look for a replacement.
I decided on a Canon MP270 because Canon seemed to have gone to the trouble of providing Linux drivers on their website. I even phoned Canon and they confirmed it should work fine.
Today the AIO arrived and I downloaded the printer and scanner drivers from Canon. I could't get the install.sh files to run - tried ./ sudo and sh etc, no joy. Anyway, I used the package manager to install the .deb files and that seemed to go OK.
The printing side of things works fine but I can't get the scanner recognized by Xsane.......
I'm using 9.10 on x86 architecture. I've searched the forums and anything related to scanning talks about editing /etc/udev/rules.d/45-libsane.rules which doesn't seem to exist on my system. Judging from the dates most of these posts probably relate to intrepid or jaunty. XSane just says 'no devices available'. Printing works fine.
Looking over the sane project for the epson GT-S50 scanner I see it lists requires DFSG non-free esci-interpreter-gt-s80 Does anybody know if one is writing their own scripts with bash and scanimage if that requirement of DFSG is still required under ubuntu (Karmic or lucid)????
I have an Epson perfection V100 Photo scanner. When I open any programit will not detect the scanner. Simply plugging in the scanner and crossing fingers does not work.sane-find-scanner returns the following:
Code: # sane-find-scanner will now attempt to detect your scanner. If the # result is different from what you expected, first make sure your
1. The scanner is properly functioning on the server side.
2. Both, the client and the server, have the package sane-utils installed.
3. I changed /etc/default/saned on the server to RUN=yes (that was easy!)
4. Editing /etc/sane.d/saned.conf is what I think I'm getting confused on. The internal IP address of the server is 192.168.1.102 and the subnet mask is 255.255.255.0. The internal IP address of the client is 192.168.1.103. So, what do I put there? Is 192.168.1.0/24 correct? That didn't work!
5. Also, editing /etc/sane.d/net.conf on the client is confusing me too! What IP address should go there? Can I put the server name? What is the correct syntax?
6. I added saned to the correct group, lp. I made sure that the scanner was owned by the correct group by doing these commands: sane-find-scanner AND ls -al /dev/bus/usb/XXX/XXX The group was lp.
I have just installed the drivers for the scanner on my brother mfc5460cn. Xsane recognizes the machine but cannot open due to an invalid argument. The problem seems to be that xsane is looking for the machine at bus 1 dev 1 however, lsusb shows the machine at bus 2 dev 5.
How can I fix the discrepancy? I've tried sudo chmod a+w /dev/bus/usb but there was no change.
I am having some issues with 11.04. My print/fax/scanner is connected directly to the ethernet line, and 11.04 cannot detect the scanner portion through the Simple Scan program. I am using an HP Officejet 4500.
I used to be able to scan perfectly fine when using 10.10, and it just won't work anymore I have the HPLIP toolbox installed, and I can't get it to open/run!
