Ubuntu :: Printers And Scanners Have Disappeared, And Thunderbird Will No Longer Load?

Jan 14, 2011

Now it seems as though all of my printers and my scanners have disappeared, also thunderbird will not open anymore. I find this very strange.. I can't even think of why this would happen.--When I start thunderbird it says starting thunderbird then does nothing.. if I try to start it again it says that it's already running.. which it is not..I have all of my updates updated.. You are using Ubuntu 11.04 - the Natty Narwhal - released in April 2011 and supported until October 2012.

Ubuntu :: Printers Disappeared After The Update?

May 11, 2010

I installed ubuntu 10.04 just after the first release was available.I configured everything - including my printers - and all was working 100% perfectly. Last friday (or perhaps thursday) I did the first update (it was big, ~60megs), and since then I have lost my printers. They are no longer listed on the "Printers" information panel.In fact, I can no longer add printers (the option is grayed out). In fact, the only option I can select is the connect to server. If I try local, I get the error that the server cannot be found.

EDIT: the original printers are networked printers, accessed via an IP address.

Slackware :: KDE Takes Longer And Longer To Load

Sep 19, 2010

I experience this since kde 4, but it never really was that bad because once in a while on updating kde I also deleted the .kde folder in my home-folder and everything was fast again.

But I haven't done this for a while now and kde take really long to load. Is there any folder to clean up there without deleting the whole .kde-folder and loosing all my settings again?

Ubuntu :: 10.10 Will No Longer Boot - Partition Disappeared

Dec 2, 2010

I booted my laptop up this morning to find that Ubuntu 10.10 will no longer boot. Here is some background. I have a Raid 0 setup with sda and sdb. For the last day or two upon boot, it was asking me to run some file system checks (hind sight I should have just sucked it up and wait for it) but I canceled out of them as I have been extremely busy. Also, I upgraded my kernel to the latest available from the repos. I am not sure if the kernel upgrade has anything to do with it or just coincidence. I have booted up with a live distro on a USB stick and here is what I am seeing:

root@bt:/dev# ls -alh sd*
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 9, 127 Dec 2 10:44 sda
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 9, 126 Dec 2 10:44 sda1
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 8, 16 Dec 2 10:41 sdb
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 8, 32 Dec 2 10:41 sdc
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 8, 33 Dec 2 10:41 sdc1
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 8, 34 Dec 2 11:06 sdc2
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 8, 37 Dec 2 10:41 sdc5
root@bt:/dev# fdisk -l

Disk /dev/sdb: 250.0 GB, 250059350016 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 30401 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x00000000

Disk /dev/sdb doesn't contain a valid partition table
Disk /dev/sdc: 16.1 GB, 16125001728 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 1960 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x00004790

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sdc1 1 1872 15036808+ 83 Linux
/dev/sdc2 1873 1960 706860 5 Extended
/dev/sdc5 1873 1960 706828+ 82 Linux swap / Solaris

So I am able to see sda in /dev but fdisk does not see it. When looking at gparted, it only is able to look at sdb and sdc (my usb stick). The weird thing is that I also have Windows 7 installed on this raid and it is able to boot without any issues so I know the entire sda hasn't died on me.

Slackware :: All Text Disappeared From Firefox And Thunderbird / Get Them Back?

Oct 23, 2010

Running Slackware64 13.1 here. I started up Firefox this morning and all the text is completely blank - all the menus have disappeared and everything. I can't really think of a great way to explain it clearly so I've attached screen grabs of Firefox and Thunderbird (which has the same problem). Other GTK apps seem to be fine, it's just the Mozillas as far as I can tell.

I have tried removing both with code...

And then I reinstalled both Firefox and Thunderbird from .txz files I downloaded from a repository, but they're still the same. Firefox version is 3.6.3 and Thunderbird is 3.0.4.

Ubuntu :: Thunderbird No Longer Starts

May 25, 2010

I have been running thunderbird. successfully for some time now under Hardy. This morning I tried to run it and I get the "wait" indication but then nothing. I looked in my home folder and the folder .mozilla-thunderbird seems to be liked to .thunderbird, but both are listed in red and black. (Doesn't sound good.) I saw a similar bug for a newer version of thunderbird, but the symptoms in my case seem different.

Slackware :: Thunderbird Links No Longer Working

Dec 24, 2010

So, approx 2 weeks ago, clicking on links in Thunderbird stopped working. There is no response in the browser whether it is open or not. I am able to paste the links to the browser just fine. Being congenitally lazy, I would rather just click them. I have upgraded to the latest version of Thunderbird and have the same issue. I have tried using Swiftfox, Firefox and Opera - all give the same non-response.

Am not getting any error messages, the links just do not open. Can't find any settings relevant to this issue.Any bright ideas out there?

Ubuntu :: Autodetection Of Network Printers Makes All Printers Disappear?

Jan 28, 2010

I've been using Kubuntu 9.10 for several months now. For most of that time, I configured and used with no problem several network printers.. a HP LaserJet 3015 at home connected to a Windows machine, and a Xerox Phaser 8560 at my coworking space connected directly to a router.

However, several weeks ago I was at the coworking space, requested a print from my web browser, and in the printer selection dialog, observed the list of printers expanding... some sort of autodetection of network printers was occuring, and multiple instances of the same printer were being offered, with slightly different names. Printing to these devices did not work.

Now, after a reboot, there are NO network printers available no matter what network I'm connected to. When I use the Kubuntu printer configuration tool and try to set up a new printer, it asks me to "Select a connection" to which the only option it gives me is "Other". When I put in an address for the printer it just cycles endlessly, never finding anything.

Ubuntu :: Printers Do Not Save In 'Shared Printers' Group?

Oct 9, 2010

I have a shared printer on my Ubuntu 10.04 machine, and it cannot be seen by other computers (macbook, pc) on the network. I have the printer shared, but it is not a member of the 'Shared Printers' group. When I add it to the 'Shared Printers' group, it stays there until I close the 'Printing' application GUI. Then, when I re-open 'Printing,' it is no longer in that group. I think this is why I can't see it on the network, due to the wording of the option in Server Settings to 'Publish shared printers connected to this system.'

Fedora :: Thunderbird No Longer Switches To Firefox On Embedded Link

Jun 15, 2010

I just recently installed F13 with Thunderbird 3.0.4 and Firefox 3.6.3 and have noticed that when I click on an embedded web link in a message that it no longer switches app windows to FireFox. On F12 if I did the above the focus would switch to Firefox once a new tab was opened and the site was accessed. Now the focus remains on the message and the tab for Firefox on the bottom panel just flashes. Is there a way to get the old behaviour back? I've checked both apps preferences as well as gnome's preferred apps but nothing changes. I am using the same profile folders from F12 as well as all of my app settings in /home.

Ubuntu :: Evolution 2.30 Will No Longer Load?

Jan 27, 2011

Evolution has been working fine, then it just will not load. I typed evolution it in the terminal and received the following errors.


I'm on Ubuntu 10.10, and have tried to update, un-install (and purge), reinstall - same errors. Then I un-installed (purged) and deleted all evolution folders and files (re-installed gnome-panel - it was deleted when I manually removed the evolution files), then reinstalled. same errors.. I've tried to install and un-install through the terminal, synaptic package manager and through the software center, with no luck.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: VLC No Longer Working After Update - Cannot Load Module

Hardware :: Support For Scanners In Ubuntu 9.10

Jan 8, 2010

I'm about to start a project which will take 12 to 18 months to complete. A major part of the project is the use of a scanner in fact it cannot proceed without scanner use. I have two scanners a Canon lide30 and a Medion N11652 with the ability to scan 35mm photographic slides. Xsane does not recognise either of them. From what I've been reading Ubuntu supports only a few scanners. I've recently purchased a professional photographic printer. While searching for a suitable printer I noted printers are not stand alone units these days. The units are multifunction the computer stores have row upon row of different brands and no stand alone printers. I feel sure these multifunction unit scanning abilities are enabled and used by linux users out there.

Ubuntu :: Cannot Get Scanners To Work In Maverick With Xsane

Oct 4, 2010

With Lucid I was capable of scanning both with my Epson Perfection 640 U scanner and with my HP-M1120n-MFP network scanner. To get the HP-M1120n to work I had to rename a file which I do not remenber which was. I do not remember where I found the instructions. I am running HPLIP 3.10.6 with Device Manager 15.0. I did a fresh install of Maverick Beta and I am not able to neither scan with the Epson Perfection scanner nor with the M1120n-MFP. As said, both worked with Lucid. As said I had to rename a file to get the MFP scanner to work. I include screen shots to this post.

I've had fail2ban setup for awhile for my SSH server, and that works beautifully (I had someone I knew attempt to access it and get banned) however I then tried to set it up to ban people scanning my webserver for lots of other pages which dont exist (and have never been linked to) such as phpMyAdmin.

In my jail.conf I have:


However Looking at this I realise I need to edit the filter.d/apache-error.conf

I'm not sure exactly how to setup the regex to ban the correct hosts

The errors from the scanners are like this:

Slackware :: Iscan- Packages On SlackBuilds And EPSON Proprietary Scanners

May 13, 2011

This is deja vue but I'm stuck again with an EPSON Perfection 4180 scanner. This is one of those scanners that is supported by the epkowa sane drivers and requires specific firmware.

The SBo packages

Should make this scanner usable in slackware. I had this working on a slackware 13.1 (32 bit), now I am trying to get it going in slackware64 13.37.

The scanner is detected by sane-find-scanner:


And somewhat by scanimage -L:


However this fails to recognize the scanner model (which was ok in 13.1 32 bit) and then it also fails to work with scanning anything (scanimage, or xsane abort and the scanner never makes any noise).

I'm suspecting that there is some problem with the library contained in iscan-proprietary-drivers.

CentOS 5 Server :: ClamAV - All Primary Virus Scanners Failed

I'm having a little trouble with ClamAV. Everytime someone sends me an email I get this error in my Webmin Mail Log. Now the mail works and it goes to the quarantine or to the user mail box but this error fills up my mail log and I'm assuming it is not using ClamAV virus definitions to scan the mail? How would I get rid of this error?

Hardware :: Multiple Barcode Scanners - Can't Seem To Redirect Output From One To A Specific Instance Of My Program

Sep 30, 2010

I have nine barcode scanners, each of whose input I want to send to a separate instantiation of a program I wrote. Each device shows up as /dev/hidraw_ (I'm using Ubuntu 10.4). The problem is that they all act as simple keyboard input, and I can't seem to redirect the output from one to a specific instance of my program. I've tried something like cat /dev/hidraw5 > ./myapp, and that doesn't work. I've tried actually opening the device in my program using open("/dev/hidraw5"), and it returns success, but subsequent reads don't do anything, and the scanner output is just printed to the console.

Ubuntu :: Can't Import Address Book From Thunderbird To Thunderbird

Aug 26, 2010

Thanks to Lucid not working properly on i845, i855 and other 8xx chips, had to re-install Karmic on my mum's computer.I saved all the data from her old install and I ve managed to get all her old emails from thunderbird, but I cant import her address book.In Thunderbird/tools/import/addressbooks it only allows importing of LDIF, .tab, .csv and .txt files, but I cant find any of these files in any of the Thunderbird, .Thunderbird, Mozilla-Thunderbird or Mozilla folders in Home folder or anywhere, all I can find is "abook.mab" which IS supposed to be her address book, but when I try and import it the entries are blank and/or indecipherable (prob cos not a compatible file type).

Its one of those "simple" things to do, thats taken hours and hours of time, but that I cant actually find out how to do.

Software :: Importing Thunderbird Settings From Portable Apps Thunderbird

Sep 13, 2010

I had a portable apps version of Thunderbird (windows) that runs off a thumb drive and wanted to take the settings and transfer them to my Thunderbird that's on my Linux computer.

This is what I did:

First, I installed thunderbird on my Ubuntu 10.04 Linux box and opened it, and closed it (so that it would create the /home/<username>/.thunderbird folder in the user account).

Then, I renamed the linux /home/<username>/.thunderbird folder to .thunderbird_ORIGINAL

Then, I created a new /home/<username>/.thunderbird folder

Then, I took the windows e:ThunderbirdPortableDataprofile folder and copied it to the /home/<username>/.thunderbird folder.

Then, I looked into the /home/<username>/.thunderbird_ORIGINAL folder and wrote down the name of the folder with the ".default" extension.

Then, I renamed the profile folder (that came from the windows e:ThunderbirdPortableData folder) "<name-I-wrote-down>.default".

And then, I copied the profiles.ini folder from /home/<username>/.thunderbird_ORIGINAL to the /home/<username>/.thunderbird folder.

I opened up Thunderbird in Linux and everything seems fine! (I'll definitely be keeping a backup just in case)

My question is: is this fine and dandy, or a recipe for disaster?

Ubuntu :: (GNOME) Thunderbird For Two Users - "Thunderbird Is Already Running But Is Not Responding"

Sep 9, 2010

I run version 10.04 GNOME. My problem is (after substantial searching) that I need to have both users ('juliusz' and 'sarah') running Thunderbird but with the same profile (settings, email, accounts etc. preferably of 'juliusz'). The only results on the internet are share Thunderbird between Windows and Ubuntu.

I have two users juliusz and sarah. I need either of them to have the same profile, always in synch whenever they logon to own account. When I tried to edit sarah's /home/sarah/.mozilla-thunderbird/profile.ini by inserting: Path=/home/juliusz/.mozilla-thunderbird/xxxxxxx.default after i run Thunderbird for 'sarah' I get message: "Thunderbird is already running, but is not responding. To open a new window, you must first close the existing Thunderbird process, or restart your system." I checked with "ps aux" there is no Thunderbird running in sarah's session. There is no Thunderbird running in juliusz's session when I reloged to juliusz.

It will either print or scan but not both without rebooting between tasks.One of the attractions of the Kodak is the cheap cost of ownership and they appear to be supported my Apple so that would be good! But what about Ubuntu support as a network printer?
