  1. [xubuntu] Re: Can't print to printer shared on Windows 10

    Ok, I tried that. It's just like before - I'm able to install the printer without error, but when I try to print something, it just sits there in my print queue and apparently never goes to her...
  2. [xubuntu] Re: Can't print to printer shared on Windows 10

    Sorry, I was replying to Autodave just then. The troubleshooting you suggest will have to wait until I get home this evening, but I will try it then.

    It's connected to her computer via USB. I'm connecting to it over the network.
  4. [xubuntu] Can't print to printer shared on Windows 10

    Our printer is an HP LaserJet P1102w, and my wife leaves her computer on 24/7 (I know, don't get me started)--but since she insists on leaving it on all the time, I set up her computer as our print...

    [SOLVED] Re: Webcam not installed properly

    It is working, after all. Just cheese doesn't show it, and Skype isn't showing it in Settings. But in a live Skype session, the webcam works. Sorry everyone.

    [SOLVED] Webcam not installed properly

    The webcam on my Sony Vaio is a VGP-VCC6 [R5U870], and on my previous installation(s) of Xubuntu I've successfully installed it by running this in a terminal:

  8. [xubuntu] Re: Can't print to printer shared on Windows 10

    I've also tried turning the firewall off altogether. I still get:

  9. [xubuntu] Re: Can't print to printer shared on Windows 10

    Hm, didn't find too much there. Though https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff633412(v=ws.10).aspx does suggest opening ports in the firewall. I followed those instructions, but I'm still...
  10. [xubuntu] Can't print to printer shared on Windows 10

    My wife leaves her computer on 24/7, so I've always used it as our print server. That worked great on her old Windows 7 machine, but since she moved to Windows 10 I haven't been able to print to it...

    Of all things, my laptop is missing Home, End, PgUp, and PgDn keys. The only way to do those functions is to hold down the Fn key and press the arrow keys--which works, but it's pretty annoying. I...

    [xubuntu] Re: VLC no longer plays movies with subtitles

    Thank you, shantiq! Your idea of finding another video player seems to have done the trick. mpv seems a little bare-bones for me, but someone else on another forum suggested SMPlayer, and so far...
