  1. Re: v14 already and -still- no proper printer installation support

    Maybe Apple pays HP, Epson, Brother, etc.? They use something called "AirPrint" which detects the printer and creates a driver for it. Granted, it's not a full-blown set of drivers (I know my Brother...
  2. Re: v14 already and -still- no proper printer installation support

    Went through this another 50 times with every permutation I could imagine. Nothing.

  3. Re: v14 already and -still- no proper printer installation support

    Rebooted and went back to the CUPS page. Managed to add the printer using the proper driver that, miraculously, appeared in the list. Doesn't work. Not even the status screen lighting up.

  4. Re: v14 already and -still- no proper printer installation support

    Downloaded and installed both the CUPSwrapper and LPD files for the MFC-J6720DW from the linked webpage. Am told "the package is of bad quality" but I provide permission.

  5. Re: v14 already and -still- no proper printer installation support

    When I add a Network Printer, my Brother printer shows up twice - once with the NetBIOS/Node name and once with "BRN001..." and its IP address. I've selected the latter (the Description Ubuntu...
  6. Re: v14 already and -still- no proper printer installation support

    Here's my printer's network configuration. Perhaps that will provide other info that would help you suggest what sort of configuration I need to craft in my Ubuntu installation.

    Ian,

    Hopefully this will answer your post in a way that makes sense.

  8. Re: v14 already and -still- no proper printer installation support

    David, Ian,

    Thanks for your suggestions. I did try David's suggestion already and it was not successful. Not sure why my machine can't connect to my printer over my network yet it -can- connect to...
  9. v14 already and -still- no proper printer installation support

    Sorry if this is viewed as complaining but I guess it is.

    For years I've been trying to like Ubuntu but every time I install it on any of my machines (Macs or PCs), I end up wiping the drive and...

    I believe I managed to enable multitouch on my HP DV6-1030us trackpad after a previous install of Lucid Lynx but I don't remember what I had to download and/or config. I just re-installed from...

    RevMedia - Anyone have the package?

    This past weekend RunRev upgraded and renamed the packages for their "Revolution" IDE for OSX, Windows, and Linux. It's now called "LiveCode". Until this change, they had a freely downloadable...
  12. [ubuntu] Re: How do I alter a file inside /etc directory?

    Sorry; I discovered my error. I wasn't typing things properly. What I did to fix things was:

    sudo cp (and I dragged the file in here so the path was correct) {space} (and I dragged the destination...
  13. [ubuntu] How do I alter a file inside /etc directory?

    I've copied a ".conf" file from /etc to my Desktop and edited it using gedit. I then used the "rm" command to delete the old file from that etc/ directory. Now I want to put my altered file into...
  14. Poll: Re: Do you have more than one Computer running Linux?

    Not sure if this thread is even the proper place to comment but Lucid 10.04.1 is sweet. I'm normally running Snow Leopard on my Macs and must run Office 2007 on Windoze7 or XP (as I teach that). I...

    I did a web search and found a...

    Thanks to all. Had the same issue this evening with a new (well, new for me but a discarded wreck for the guy who gave it to me) 600m with the same Broadcom adapter. Followed the directions and all...
  18. Re: are there ANY good video editors for Linux?

    Cinelerra and the standard movie player that comes with 8.1 have a horrible A/V sync problem with MP4(H264/AAC) files. VLC and Mplayer do not.

    I'd actually -pay- for something like MediaEdit...
  19. [ubuntu] Re: Photo Organizers and Quicktime Movies

    Would it be serviceable to simply drop your QT movies into a folder and use the Movie Player to play them? You might need to update your codecs to permit QT videos to play.

    [ubuntu] Re: external hard drive now read-only

    I used it for an HFS+ hard drive connected via USB. However, this does classify it as a "Linux-type" filesystem, I guess.

  24. [ubuntu] Re: Share folders & disks on Ubuntu 8 box to Macs & PCs?

    It looks like I only have to do the 'chown' command once for each drive just so it's set for R/W for both me and the clients logging in over the LAN (who are logging in as me).

  25. [ubuntu] Re: Share folders & disks on Ubuntu 8 box to Macs & PCs?
