Ubuntu Multimedia :: Lucid Upgrade Breaks Dual Monitor Set Up?

May 1, 2010

When Karmic came along, I upgraded and it was possible for the first time to get a dual monitor display working using only the GUI apps supplied. (I think I used screen resolution) It worked out of the box and took no time whatsoever.

I had a dual monitor set up working with 2 1024 x 768 monitors, with a desktop spanning both, and a background picture doing the same.

The Lucid update has just spectacularly broken this, along with a large number of desktop type changes that were unwanted.

The version of Ubuntu was the usual vanilla, but with enough K stuff installed to make K3b work. The card is a Radeon 9250SE.

Give up and re-install Karmic? Wait for some sort of upgrade to allow either Monitors or Multiple Screens to work - the option to remove cloning is greyed out in one and unticking clone in the other does nothing? Try some other distro?

Does anyone know of a decision to remove any functionality from Lucid that existed in Karmic? Is there any useful background to this that is perhaps not obvious?

Ubuntu / Apple :: Kubuntu Lucid Upgrade Breaks Video?

Jan 13, 2011

So I've got this old Apple with an nVidia chipset. Don't know much about Apples, but from random searches on google I think it's an imac g5.

Anyway when I install Kubuntu 10.04 it works until I update it, then the video dies. It looks as though the nouveau driver is being killed and nv put back in it's place, anyone have any remedies I might try?

Ubuntu :: Printing With HP Officejet 6500A Plus ?

Aug 5, 2011

I have three computers with wireless and wired connections to a HP Officejet 6500A Plus all-in-one that I purchased a few months ago. Two of the three are running Ubuntu (versions 8.04 and 9.10). By Christmas, I'll be getting a new computer and upgrading to an Ubuntu v. 10.xx or 11.xx. In the first few weeks after I got the 6500, I had no trouble printing (although in 8 years using Linux, I've never been able to scan ...). For the last couple of weeks, however, I've been unable to print. I keep getting messages saying that the printer is not connected. I have re-installed the printer drivers and run hp-setup several times but to no avail. Its latest trick is to start spitting out paper with a line or more of ASCII symbols at a very rapid rate. The third computer is a Windoze 7 box that my son connects to wirelessly but he can no longer print as well.

Jul 24, 2010

I have a HP Officejet 6500 E709a printer, everything works fine except that I cannot print with color. I go to admin, open the config for printer, and print the test page but I get no color. Also, in the properties of the printer I cannot see the level of the ink. It says this info is not provided by the printer.

Ubuntu :: HP OfficeJet 6310 All In One Printing Stops In Midway?

Jan 1, 2010

I have had good success with the HP OfficeJet 6310 printing and Karmic. However, recently when printing, the print job stops after a certain amount of pages ( when printing a multiple page document ). The first page almost always prints immediately. This issue occurs with PDFs, OO Writer documents and OO Spreadsheet documents. The printer status window on the printer shows "printing" and the print manager in Gnome shows printing. Sometimes the printing completes after several minutes. Other times I end up killing the job and powering down the printer.

Networking :: HP Officejet Printer Sharing

Oct 20, 2010

I just installed an HP Officejet 6200 on a Slackware 12.1 machine. It uses a USB interface. If I am on the machine, I can print to it with no problem. When I am on my Debian or Centos machines, I cannot. I have midified the cupsd.conf file to allow everyone to connect to it but so far have not had any success. Port 631 is open on all machines. I have explicitly added a hosts allow line in several portions of the conf file with no luck. If I use the cups interface on any of the machines using localhost:631 as the address, I can not only see the printer I can print to it, but I noticed, I am actually attached to the Slackware machine where the printer is located. Can someone suggest a debugging method to help?

Ubuntu :: HP Printer Officejet Pro 8000 Not Load Paper Properly

Aug 16, 2010

I have a HP Officejct Pro 8000 Printer hooked to UBUNTU 9.10 on a system 76 box. The printer is not loading paper properly. I see references to this issue on various websites and I saw at least one reference to new drivers but alas they were all for windows. I checked the repository and I have the latest and greatest HPLIP. Does this mean I have all of the latest drivers?

Debian Hardware :: Can't Print On HP Officejet Pro 8610

Mar 1, 2016

I just bought the HP Officejet Pro 8610. I got it all hooked up and tried to print a test page. All I got was page after page of nothing. I am running Debian Weezy on an AMD chip. I had an older HP all in one that worked but the print heads failed. How do I get the 8610 to print.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: HP OfficeJet 6110 Scanner Not Working?

Dec 18, 2009

I have a HP Office-Jet 6110 All-In-One for about 5 years now and I havve been using it on Suse and openSuse without a problem all these years. This morning I wanted to scan something and suddenly realised that the scanner is not working. I can print but not scan. i tried to set up the scanner using YaST like I have done for the past 5 years but it#s not working. Hpaio shows that no scanner is available for this driver. I can#t install the scanner. What has changed in 11.2 that devices that worked before are not working anymore?

OpenSUSE Hardware :: 11.4 - OfficeJet 6500A Job Completed But No Prints

Mar 15, 2011

I installed the 64-bit version of OpenSUSE 11.4 last week and tried to print from it today. I couldn't get anything to come out. I've tried both USB and network printing, and nothing ever works. Any attempt to print anything results in the HPLIP Status Service app telling me the job is "completed" immediately, with nothing printed, but the CUPS web interface reports "/usr/lib/cups/filter/hpcups failed".

It's connected to the network router and hp-setup discovers it when I use manual discovery and give it the IP address, but it still won't print even a test page, whether as root or as a user. I've also used the CUPS web interface to add my user to the list of users allowed to print, and added my user to the lp group. But I still get the same error and nothing ever prints.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: HPLIP With 11.2 64-bit - OfficeJet Pro L7680 - Don't Get The Printer To Work

Dec 5, 2009

after an update to 11.2 (from 11.1), 64 bit, I don't get the printer to work. I reinstalled the driver and checked in cups: it says that the printer is available and waiting for a job. When I send something to the printer, nothing happens. The priont job will be stopped immediately. The printer is properly connected: xsane finds the scanner, that is part of the printer, without a problem. The printer is also ok: I can copy documents, it just works fine.

OpenSUSE :: Hp-setup Wont Setup HP Officejet?

Aug 18, 2011

With new installs of openSuse 11.4 I've hit a printer problem. I can run hp-setup (or hp-toolbox) for the wireless Officejet j6410 and it is recognised. The right driver is selected. Then when I choose add printer it all falls over with the error message: error: Printer queue setup failed. Could not connect to CUPS Server Is user added to "lp" group(s) error: Fax queue setup failed. Please restart CUPS and try again.

The user is added to the lp group. I have this problem with my 64 bit desktop and 32 bit laptop installs of 11.4, it all worked perfectly in 11.2. I've used the Cups web interface to set up the printer now and can print from both machines, but I would prefer to use the hp-toolbox, which has several convenient features. Where do I go from here?

Ubuntu Installation :: 9.10 Breaks ATI X-1950 Pro

Jan 31, 2010

I just upgraded to the new 9.10. In 8.04 when I went into "Restricted Drivers" it showed something for my video card. Now there is nothing.

I'm trying to play a game (Counter-Strike) and it's just too laggy, probably because I don't have any drivers installed for the video card.

It's an ATI Radeon X-1950 Pro. What can I do?

Ubuntu :: 'set' Is Strange - Script Breaks Out?

May 29, 2010

notice at line 81 it goes rather strange - this goes on for another 9000 odd lines and looks like the set script is broken out and cat-ing to the screen - can't prove this as I've not been able to find the set script that is invoked...e.g.

uname@Sol:~$ set |head -200

Ubuntu :: MPD + Install - Breaks PulseAudio ?

Jun 26, 2010

After i tried a lot of mpd.conf tricks, I followed the tips on [url], namely, adding the mpd user to groups pulse and pulse-access. Now, which makes me really happy, MPD can have audio output. Downside: no other program can make sound, I can't make my beats again with lmms etc. The volume icon in the top right is always on mute, when i click preferences, the hardware tab didn't even show a device. Now it does, but nothing comes out except mpd out - and pressing the volume keys will display a notification but the main icon in the bar stays on "---" mute. Can i make mpd just an application on the pulseaudio outputs list, so that it can play nicely with the other guys?

Ubuntu :: Firefox Breaks All Other Sound?

Dec 13, 2010

I've been stuck in the windows side of my dual boot for about a month, I came back over to the ubuntu side and updated/upgraded and ran into this issue: When I log in everything sound related works fine. I can play audio and record audio off of the monitor using audacity. As soon as I start firefox though, all audio breaks. I can't play audio in any other program, recording in audacity fails, etc. Closing Firefox doesn't help, rebooting seems to be the only thing that works. I've already tried purging and reinstalling flash, but that doesn't seem to have had any effect. When starting audacity it throws this error:

bt_audio_service_open: connect() failed: Connection refused (111)
bt_audio_service_open: connect() failed: Connection refused (111)
bt_audio_service_open: connect() failed: Connection refused (111)
bt_audio_service_open: connect() failed: Connection refused (111)
Expression 'stream->capture.pcm' failed in 'src/hostapi/alsa/pa_linux_alsa.c', line: 3653

I'm on Lucid if that is of any relevance. It seems to me that firefox is monopolizing the audio device both while running and after it closes. What is odd is that I've never had this problem before, and all I did was update. I often run audio in firefox and record it with audacity.

p.s. I use pavucontrol to set up recording, and firefox no longer shows up as a playback application when playing audio.

Ubuntu Servers :: Mdadm Breaks 8.04.4 LTS

Mar 30, 2011

I've got a strange problem. I have the following system:


After doing this install everything works fine as expected. I can reboot, shutdown and bootup as I much as I want to and the system will work. Now, I proceed to do the following (as root obviously - sudo bash)


When I try to restart the system now, I get to the grub boot loader and then it just breaks with the following message I've identified 'mdadm' as being the culprit here. Any idea why this would happen? Just a subnote. The reason I'm installing mdadm is to create a soft-raid as follows with the remaining space on each drive:

Ubuntu :: Text In Shell Breaks Up?

Jun 7, 2011

I work a lot with Unix bash shell environment. Whenever I go down the directory tree to several subdirectories, i.e., /home/a/b/c/d/ and so on and type in a long command, what happens is that command text wraps around onto the new line but when trying to edit command I can only go back to the beginning of the new line. So, for, instance, say I go to directory and type something like:

/home/a/b/c/d/find . -type f -exec sed -i <- end of line
's/blah/blah/g' {} ; <- new line

Here, the problem is I can't go back to the real beginning of my command that starts with "find", I can only scroll to the beginning of the new line with the part "'s/blah/blah/g' {} ;"

So I effectively loose control over what I typed and can't edit it when the command wraps to a new line. Does anyone else experience this problem?

I also have this problem on our Debian servers so I always have to make sure I type the right command the first time because I can't move back and forth to edit it when it wraps to a new line.

Ubuntu :: Kernel Update Breaks Installation?

Ubuntu :: Empathy Jabber Breaks After Disconnecting

Apr 30, 2010

I was excited to use empathy in 10.04; however, both in the Beta and the Full Release I experience the following. (Note: I'm using 64 bit.)Setup 'Wizard' adds GTalk and Facebook Chat just fine.Manually add a IRC account (can't do that from wizard).Manually add a SIP account.Enjoy that it's working, and think that the full release fixed the bug.Disconnect

Then the next day.Set status as available.Get an ambiguous 'network-error' for GTalk and Facebook.Disable all accounts.Restart empathy, enable GTalk, get same error.Delete all accounts, restart system, go through account 'wizard', add GTalk, same error.Upgrade to dev version of Empathy, notice it's no longer in the nice messaging applet, but GTalk connects.Disconnect/Reconnect - same error.

Anyone else having this problem? Seems something is breaking with Jabber on Empathy. But I can't find any related information. I'll post logs when I boot into the 10.04 installation (which I was hoping to switch to, but not so sure right now.)
