It is possible that you're affected by this: Support of R600 and R700 chips (Radeon HD 2000/3000/4000 series) was dropped at fglrx-driver 1:12-6~beta-1.( changelog ). The latter are helped with the now separate package fglrx-legacy-driver . Unsupported chips are supported by the "radeon" open sourc...

@sobrus

I had the same problem with the fglrx drivers. The problem seems to be on the ATI's end of things. See page 5 of this thread for more info: http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.p ... 80#p617784

At home, we run latest on our two computers, but we also have incoming running on one partition so as to get ready for potential problems before they hit our main computers. Here is one (which is not LMDE's fault, but which I need to figure out a...

Re: Canon MF4570dn - can't get to work

It seems there's a problem with python-cups I installed python-cups_1.9.61-0.1 from http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=656640#58 and it solved the error message but not the non-printing problem.

@pdc_2 First, thanks for helping out! Second, the UFRII/UFRII LT Printer Driver for Linux v2.20 driver from the link you provided still doesn't contain 64-bit deb files.

Exact same here. Except, that my set up used to work under Linux Mint 12 with the exact same steps...
