View Full Version : [ubuntu] I have lost Skype & Printer after upgrade

July 6th, 2011, 06:58 PM

I upgraded my parent's desktop from 10.10 to 11.04 and after that I have a series of problems, the two major issues are:

1) The MIC has stopped working in Skype. The mic is not muted and works in WinXP, I have disable 'allow skype to adjust volume' but is still on mute. Any advice?

2) My printer is a Canon LBP2900. It used to work just fine but now it doesn't print any more. I have re-installed the driver with the famous raducotescu (http://radu.cotescu.com/how-to-install-canon-lbp-printers-in-ubuntu/) script but it only prints once after the installation. If I reboot it doesn't print any more. I have tried both the 2.3 and 2.4 scripts and they give the same result.... Any suggestions? Anything that is not 'started' after a reboot?
