View Full Version : [ubuntu] Canon ip3500 printer problem

December 15th, 2008, 05:29 PM
Whenever i print images on this printer, they come out with a sort of distorted shadow, close to them, kind of like a negative. Can someone help me print normally?

Also, is there a way to change the username of a user
And, i accidently deleted my turn off switch, with my name next to it, the place where you can choose, turn off, restart, log out ect. I have seen similar ones by right clicking, and 'add to panel', but none are exactly the same as the one i deleted, how can i bring it back?

You can get the User Switcher back by right clicking on the toolbar, choosing add to panel, then Add User Switcher

You cannot rename a user. You can create a new user then delete the old username.

to add the user enter:

sudo useradd -d /home/username -m username

then set the password with:

sudo passwd username
