Re: Broken packages and VPN

bitmask is not a repository package and you seem to have attached an incompatible PPA.

Broken packages and VPN

I had Bitmask installed and my VPN was working fine until a few days ago then it wasn't. I uninstalled everything and tried to reinstal Bitmask again but I get this. Have tried to fix the broken packages but it seems I am not doing it correctly. Quite likely. This is what I get when I try to run the...

Re: Unable to find iPod

Okay. I tried a different usb cable. But I get this message now: Unable to mount ipod Device /dev/sdb2 is already mounted at `/media/usb0'. When I plug in this usb cable the ipod flashes the 'do not disconnect' message. Using the other cable nothing happened to the ipod. So what to do? I am very new...

SOLVED: Unable to find iPod

My system doesn't seem to 'see' my ipod. It is unlocked. So I can't mount it and let Banshee do its thing. I get this when I do a check on the USBs $ lsusb Bus 001 Device 004: ID 05c8:033a Cheng Uei Precision Industry Co., Ltd (Foxlink) Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub ...

Re: Not printing. Possible installation problem?

Do you have libsane and sane-utils packages installed? This might be a good time to install the scanner setting file package individually. (And possibly the scanner drivers, scan key tool packages but I fear it might break something). http://support.brother.com/g/b/downloadlist.aspx?c=au&lang=e...

Re: Not printing. Possible installation problem?

This definitely make a lot of progress. I changed it to a network printer and it can print from the computer and also print a copy from the scanner. The one thing I cannot get it to do is scan to file. It is like it cannot communicate to printer via usb.

The package cups-filters has that banners directory. Do you have that package installed and can you confirm you have no /usr/share/cups/banners directory? The error log mentions no other directories missing, so assuming they are the same error, both situations (test page print and troubleshooting p...

Re: Not printing. Possible installation problem?

Thank you gmilo2. I had a look at all the cups things in synaptic. I did indeed find that 'CUPS' was not installed. I have installed via synaptic. In the process it removed a couple of foomatic files. I tried another test page and it still doesn't print (though it still says it has completed printin...

Re: Not printing. Possible installation problem?

Still not printing
When I run the printer trouble shooter I get 'Error submitting test page There was an error during the CUPS operation 'No such file or directory''

I didn't get any error installing the CUPS wrappers or any of the other installs.

Take the first 3 parts of the 4 part ip address and run: nmap -sP 192.168.1.* This will give you a list of all the ip addresses assigned on your network.
