Re: Help! HP LaserJet printing error codes

Bump.

If I broke any rules with this post or worded this improperly please let me know! I'm clueless what to do next and may just buy another printer and hope it's plug-and-play.

Thanks,
Justin

Help! HP LaserJet printing error codes

Hi all, My girlfriend and I are still brand new to Linux and trying to learn as we go. Her computer has an HP LaserJet 2015d connected locally via USB. It prints via plug-and-play but every document comes out with error codes. I tried installing HPLIP and installed the printer via HPLIP Toolbox, and...

Re: [SOLVED] Need suggestion for wireless adapters

Thanks for the feedback everyone. I just wanted to close the loop on this for anyone else looking for a wifi card. I did a lot more research and decided that Atheros would be ideal since they are Linux friendly (9x drivers anyway - apparently 10x causes issues). This fits the budget and is purely pl...

Re: Need suggestion for wireless adapters

I'm not set on getting the smallest, so scratch the nano comment. I'm fine with antennas but this PC won't be doing any gaming or much HD streaming. My main goal is to find a card or dongle that is plug and play or not too difficult to install (I'm 2 days in using Linux). Thanks for the suggestions ...

[SOLVED] Need suggestion for wireless adapters

Hi Everyone, So I am on the market for a wireless adapter and want to get one that is known to work well with Linux Mint 19. USB or PCIe doesn't matter, but I am looking for something small (like nano usb) if possible. What devices do you use and like that are compatible without too much hassle? Tha...

Re: First day with Linux - integrated Wifi not working

Oh right! I was about to do a UEFI install and after reading some material decided to stick with legacy for now, totally forgot I did that, thanks. Ok well thanks for the help everyone, it is really appreciated. Never got integrated wifi working, but I learned a lot and will plan to purchase a PCI w...

Re: First day with Linux - integrated Wifi not working

Ok, I think I will resolve to buying a USB or PCI WiFi adapter since the integrated wifi doesn't seem to want to work. You mentioned resetting bios back to defaults, and I tried that too. But I find it odd that after resetting to defaults it doesn't recognize the hard drive until I enable CSM suppor...

Re: First day with Linux - integrated Wifi not working

Unfortunately no, this machine I completely moved over to Linux Mint. I have another WIndows PC, but since we are talking integrated WiFI I can't really look that up. If you had that ID, is there a reasonable chance of making this work? I'm willing to setup a virtual box and install windows or even ...

Re: First day with Linux - integrated Wifi not working

Oh I see what you are asking. Yes if I plug in an ethernet cable it is now working again. So at least I'm back where I started :) I guess I was hoping the official driver downloaded from Realtek may possibly enable the wifi side of things (since on windows I installed the one driver and both wired a...

Re: First day with Linux - integrated Wifi not working

I downloaded the driver from RealTek, extracted the tarball, and read the README. It was pretty straightforward, and I knew I may be missing the compiler. I ran the autorun.sh as it instructed and I got some errors about missing packages (as we expected). I installed them from package manager and re...

Re: First day with Linux - integrated Wifi not working

Thanks for the feedback, and OK I will resolve to using LibreOffice. I also found it odd the manufacturer doesn't mention wifi on their specs, but it is definitely there. Here is some more detail that may help us solve this.... After building this PC, I installed Win7 originally. All of the hardware...
