Ubuntu Lurid crapware: "hibernate hangs...ethernet disabled...no network...shutdown hangs...CD won't write...printer won't print"
"I wanted to upgrade but couldn't, for reasons not understood having to
do with repository stuff.
So I installed new ubuntu in dual boot with old ubuntu.
Installed OK on my old e-machine.
Then I decided to hibernate.
Hung. Turned off power.
Now the ethernet card is disabled on boot and I cannot get to network.
Even if I ifconfig the card. Also, shutdown hangs like hibernate did.
I have no clue how to fix this.
Fortunately, old ubuntu still comes up and gets to network or I wouldn't

I'm trying to setup a 3570 Canon Printer on my network. The printer
and workstations are all in the same subnet. When trying to print a
test page to the printer's ip address I can see that the job goes into
the print queue (from a windows 2000 machine) for a second and has a
job status of "printing". It then goes out of the queue as if the job
completed and was sent to the printer. During this time the 3570
Canon Printer makes some noise as if the print job is going to print
(for about 1 to 2 seconds) and then stops. Nothing comes out of the
printer. I get no e...Computer won't allow Printer To Be Added... and dies when HP Network Printer Wizard Runss..

I'm running Windows XP Pro with a Lexmark Z22 printer. Often when I try to
print, the printing notification widow pops up. As usual, I hear "Printing
started," but nothing happens while the seconds are ticking away on the
clock. If I try to cancel the job, then check the printing queue, the job
is still there, marked "Deleting." The only way to get it to print is to
restart, then it works (until the next time). The only way to delete the
unsuccessful print job is to go into task manager under Processes and try to
guess which process to delete. This works, when I g...Home network printer won't work
Hi all...... I've just put together a small home network, one pc running
windows xp home and one running windows 98se. After some frustration I
now have shared internet access and file sharing working on both
computers. I cannot however get them to share a printer, I've run the
network wizard and all seems to be well, the printer shows up on both
computers. I've installed the appropriate drivers etc. but all attempts
to print from the windows 98 computer send the message, unable to
communicate with the printer. I've tried looking at many websites, most
of which ...Canon Printer Won't Stalls On Graphics
The is a Multipass 2500 unit [similar to BJ 4100 engine]. I thought I
solved this a few weeks ago but problem returned.
Units prints characters fine.
Demo page print [firmware in unit - not software] includes a graphic element
which causes print head to lose its place or "skip", i.e., head parks on the
right side while paper advances jerkily.
This problem came clear while cleaning in the past. Most recently, I
thought it was a slight misalignment of the "wiper" pad but I see no joy

I'm attempting to connect a Windows XP "Home" system to a shared
printer on a Windows NT 4 system via peer-to-peer networking.
The trouble I'm having is that when installing the printer on XP, a
diagnostic message pops up saying that XP cannot connect because the NT
system doesn't have a compatible printer driver. Then the printer
setup just aborts! (I don't think it's a networking problem, I can
browse shared directories on the NT system, and the NT system can print
to XP printers.)
On Win9x systems one could manually specify a printer driver for

I am using a parallel cable to connect the printer and the computer.
Couple of things to try.
Make sure the parallel port is enabled in your bios and has an address.
Additionally there may be several settings for the port; 'enhanced', etc.
Check the documentation of the printer to see which setting is indicated.

I've got a Canon S600 inkjet printer which was working perfectly fine
until a couple of days ago in which i was rearranging my computer
station to another room. All that was done was that the printer was
disconnected and moved temporarily. Upon re-connection, I noticed
that anything I try to print in black (ie. Word document or web pages)
doesn't print. Other colors including grey print fine. I've checked
that all the ink cartridges are full, tried reinstalling/updating the
drivers etc. but nothing.

I have an i560 printer. It has suddenly stopped printing black.
I have the service manual, but it doesn't give any circuit diagrams.
Can anyone help?
I looked on the internet, and a number of people have had this problem,
but most of the answers tell them to replace the ink cartridge - as if
that was not the first thing anyone intelligent would do!
I have played around with it, and I find that if I plug it into my
laptop it prints a Word text document perfectly - so the black cartidge
and printhead must be O.K.

My Canon i560 has suddenly stopped printing black.
I've looked on the internet, and quite a few people seem to have had
this happen, and the only suggestion is "change the black ink
cartridge" - which is what anyone with any intelligence would do anyway!
It won't print black text from Impression on my RISC PC, but when I
plug the printer into my laptop with the USB it prints out "Word"
documents perfectly. I suspect this is because the RISC PC prints
documents as graphics, and it has stopped printing graphics. Anyway, it
proves that there is no fault with the blac...Quark 5 won't recognize printer description files

I have been working for days resetting my network after much trouble.
I now have a win98se computer printing to the HP 3550n printer. I have
a wireless 4-port router (only using the hard wired ports now) and a
8-port switch. There is another g5 and another win98se computer, but
I'm leaving them out of this for now.
Right now, I can make the win98se machine print on the 3550n. It's a
solid connection through the HP print server, the JetDirect en3700.
The IP address has been set manually to 192.168.1.103. I have tried
