    [all variants] Re: monchrome laser printer recommendation

    Mine works fine, and I don't need any new features. I get that HP would like you to buy a new HP printer. What would you expect them to say? Besides, this printer works even without HPLIP support,...

    [other] Re: Suggest a Motherboard?

    Any basic Intel board with 4 memory slots and at least 2 regular PCI slots should work fine. You didn't mention what you'll be using for graphics, but most of the on-board Intel chips ought to work...

    Have you tested the HDMI to DVI cable in Windows or in another computer, so you can rule that out? Have you tried using a different monitor to connect to so you can rule that out?

    [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu 12.10 use only partial memory

    A little googling reveals to me that HD 4000 graphics can use a maximum of 1.7 GB of system RAM for onboard video. Have you tried going into your system bios and looking for a setting to change the...

    [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu 12.10 use only partial memory

    You're fine, stop worrying. I have 4 GB of RAM in my notebook, and have never once seen RAM usage go above 1 GB. I'm not sure if you have the System Monitor applet installed, but if you do, this...

    [ubuntu] Re: Compatible printers

    The older HP printers work extremely well in Ubuntu. The newer ones, however, seem to have some serious quality issues and compatibility is limited in some cases, especially the all-in-one models.

    [ubuntu] Re: Can't setup HP usb printer

    Looks like one of those all-in-one units. Not all of them are supported yet by HP, unfortunately.

    [ubuntu] Re: Brother MFC 8440: Very slow printing.

    Couple other things you can try, after you see if the drivers linked above work or not.

    If it's PDF files that are printing really, try a couple of different PDF viewer programs, since PDF files...

  13. [ubuntu] Re: using hp scanner which is not detected in 12.04

    The fact it's a multi-function unit reduces the chances it will be supported.

    I just looked over the list of drivers for HP printers and didn't see your model listed, though a few of the...
  14. [ubuntu] Re: using hp scanner which is not detected in 12.04

    The model of the HP scanner you're using would be helpful.

    Install xsane either through Software Center, Synaptics or the terminal. Also install several of the scanning programs and try each of...

    [ubuntu] Re: Lenovo T400 Will Not Wake Up

    If the version you upgraded from was 10.10 or earlier, it makes perfect sense to me, since the backlight and suspend problems with the Intel 4500 graphics first appeared in 11.04 (and have still not...
  16. [ubuntu] Re: How to get Vodafone Mobile Broadband TopUp And Go UK dongle working?

    [ubuntu] Re: Lenovo T400 Will Not Wake Up

    It's your Intel 4500 MHD graphics. It's a bug going way back to the introduction of version 11.04 in April 2011, and has still not been fixed.

  18. [ubuntu] Re: How to get Vodafone Mobile Broadband TopUp And Go UK dongle working?

    Not sure I can help you beyond that then. Because all I do with my Virgin Mobile CDMA modem is plug it in, run the wizard, and after that, the modem automatically dials and connects and I'm online...
  19. [ubuntu] Re: How to get Vodafone Mobile Broadband TopUp And Go UK dongle working?

    I have to ask, Mr. Wizard, did you use the "Wizard" to configure the device? :D

    Because that's all you should need to do, assuming your provider is listed in the drop down menu. It will set the...
  20. [ubuntu] Re: How to get Vodafone Mobile Broadband TopUp And Go UK dongle working?

    I think you're configuring it wrong.

    A few seconds after you plug it in, you should get an entry under the network icon on the top right taskbar that says "New CDMA Connection". When you click on...

    [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal Back Light Issue

    The best fix I know of is to download and install 10.04 LTS. You can do the workaround, but suspend and hibernate are still completely messed up, and you'll have to deal with that every 10 minutes...

    It's much worse in other variants like Open Suse, because not as many people use it, so it takes much much longer to find a fix. I installed OpenSuse 12.1 yesterday on this machine, and had the exact...

    About all you can do is go into System Settings / Brightness and Lock and set it so the screen never turns off when inactive. If...
