Ubuntu :: Software Package That Will Allow To Use Fingerprint Scanner To Update Clock Sheets For Workers?
Jul 5, 2011
I need to install a USB fingerprint reader for a customer on a system running Ubuntu. So I have 2 questions:
1. Is there any specific brand that I should go for or avoid (regarding compatibility)?
2. Is there any software package (open source) that will allow them to use the fingerprint scanner to update clock sheets for workers?
How to get a built in fingerprint scanner to work with linux? the device was installed on my laptop when i initially ordered it, i have a dell studio 1735 (i think its 1735) and i would like to use it with my linux. by the way im running mandriva.
The clock applet "Clock 2.30.0" in my panel reads correctly on boot, and then never updates itself. When I go to its preferences, time setting is correct and continuously updating, but the display in my panel never changes. I can use "killall-gnomepanel" from terminal, and this rests everything, making the time display correctly. Furthermore, it updates itself afterward... but I'd like the dang thing to function correctly without resorting to that.
I am running Wheezy 7.9 32 bit, with the kernel Linux 3.2.0-4-686-pae, and Gnome 3.4.2 on an Intel Pentium CPU G3420 @ 3.2 GHz. I installed a new printer in August, an HP Officejet 7612 all-in-one printer/scanner/copier, and it worked perfectly as both a printer and a scanner first time, despite not being listed on the supported list in SANE. Two weeks ago, I got a general software update notification, and did the update. Now the scanner is not recognised. The printer still works fine as a printer, but when using Simple-scan, I get the error message "No scanners detected. Please check your scanner is connected and powered on". I have had a look round on Google, and all the suggestions made do not work.
I tried the suggestion to add myself to the scanner users list on my PC which made no difference (even though the scanner previously worked without my being added to the scanner users list).
I have deleted the printer and re-installed it using CUPS, but that still has no effect. I tried re-installing HPLIP also to no avail, and I have now lost the toolbox on the drop down menu under <Applications> <Accessories> <HP Toolbox>, as when I click on it, nothing happens.
It would seem that something in the update has messed up Simple-scan. Looking at the dpkg log (is this the right thing to look at?) for the date of the update, I cannot find anything which directly involved SANE, so I think that it might be something else which has affected SANE. How I can find out which update did the damage? I don't normally do anything except accept recommended updates, so I am a bit lost as to what to do.
Running openSUSE 11.2 with HP All-in-one 3055 printer/fax/scanner attached through network. Using hplip package.
Printer works just fine. Scanner did work for quite some time, however it stopped working after some update about a month ago (using only opensuse update repo).
When doing hp-scan I get following error:
Checking all the logs I can think of I can't figure this one out. Tried newer hplip package fom HP site same issue (I have two systems, on one I've tried the new driver, on one only using opensuse update repo ...both same issue)
The only thread on creating a contact sheet appears to be years old & locked:- (photography) how to create a single jpg /tif contact sheet? So may I ask what's the most common method today of creating a set of contact sheets of a directory of, say, 500 photos (on Ubuntu 10.04 lucid)? The only thing I really want to specify is the grid (e.g., 4 photos by 6 photos, or something like that).
I received an update yesterday and now my analog clock plasmoid is no longer functional. It's strange too because when I change a setting in the plasmoid, it'll magically come to life. I ran plasma-desktop in terminal to catch an error output, but nothing came up.

I have installed Ubuntu 11.04, 64 bit and now I am trying to install/configure MFC-7420 scanner part (printer works fine)I tried to follow the steps listed at http://ubuntuforums.org/archive/index.php/t-590793.html, but I don't have etc / udev / rules.d/45-libsane.rules file to edit and can not continue with the remaining steps of the guide.
I also tried to follow the steps provided by the Brother Solution Center http:[url].... I have downloaded brscan2 64 bit and installed without error but when I tried to install the brscan-skey-0.2.1-3.amd64.deb using >sudo dpkg -i --force-all brscan-skey-0.2.1-3.amd64.deb I get the following error:

Which dependencies am I missing? or What am I doing wrong?
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.
having had problems with getting grub2 to work on dual HDD setup...despite the most excellent advice on the forum i took the plunge and installed 10.10 from update manager within 10.04..... bingo fixed grub and now have dual boot again. but the update manager and synaptic package don't work because of libedata-cal1.2-6 file that remains..following other advice on the forum Advice gratefully received, how can i force an unistall of this package

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.
I'm using a very simple conky script to diplay the date and time on my desktop. I've noticed that he conky clock is a few seconds early compared to the time displayed in the right hand side of the top panel (Natty). I guess both displays are based on the same "internal" time, so I'm left wondering how this could happen, and how to sync back the clocks.
It seems that Conky is in sync with the system date, while the panel clock is 2 seconds late (on my system). Checked with while true; do date; sleep 0.1; done
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 had cloned a centos 5.6 installation from virtualbox virtual machine to physical box. Everything work fine. However, the time showing in os using date command differs from bios time by roughly 4 hours. I am running ntp services which sync the time with another centos server on the network. It appears that some services are using virtual clock and some use physical clock. How do I get rid of virtual clock and only use physical clock?
my school we want to print a magazine but we have problem with the format of the files. We need to create a sheet in A3 format from two sheets in A4 format. I was reading about the pdftk library but it doesn't do what i need.

Ubuntu 10.04 64 bit I have not been able to update using the update manager or by using the package manager. It seems when the update manager tries to download all the requests fail.Anyone else had this problem??
configuring/enabling the fingerprint log-on feature in ubuntu 10.04 64 bit version on hp dv6 notebook. i tried the think finger tool to configure it but i couldn't do that as it fails to detect the scanning device.
First off is there any way to configure ubuntu to log in with a password, fingerprint and usb token? Secondly what is the difference between the standard home folder encryption and the alternate install encryption?
Thirdly is it possible on new external hard drives that incorporate thumb scanners to install truecrypt on these? Fourthly does anyone here on ubuntu forums use lastpass with the 'yubikey' device-does it work well on ubuntu? And fifthly are ironkey usb keys worth the money or are they a scam?
when i update my computer, i receive this error message can anyone tell me why and how to fix it ? Failed to fetch [URL] 504 Gateway Time-out Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.
