My Dad's just switched to Ubuntu on his main computer. The printer is active on network and is connected to his main computer by USB. None of the computer will recognize it, whether it be on the network or from USB.
I am using ubuntu 11.10 for last 2 or 3 days.
I like it. Now problem is that, When I installed my printer HP F2180 on ubuntu. It prints very well in ubuntu.but, I cannot scan any type of document through this printer in ubuntu.While in my other windows PC, The printer works very well. It prints good and also scan very well.
This is the free download link for the scan driver 3.01.77 for your SAMSUNG CLX-3185 printer series. This scan driver will activate and enable the scan feature on the CLX-3185 multifunction printer under Windows XP, Vista or Windows 7. This driver is available for 32bit and 64bit as well.
i took my old computer (amd 5600+, 2gb ram, 880gt, 250gb sata etc etc) and decided to jump and try ubuntu for the first time. i have very VERY little knowledge (red hat when i was younger) with linux in general.
my main desktop is windows 7 and my plan is to use the ubuntu computer as a file server sort of speak.
I'm using mediatomb (ver.: 0.12.1-0ubuntu4) on Ubuntu 12.04 64bit.
My problem is that it does not automatically scan my media directories. Through mediatomb GUI, I added two 3TB data HDDs to be watched on the following basis.
Interval: 1800 sec
Yes, I acknowledge that two 3TB HDDs may be too much to watch with the 1800 sec interval.
Power has been out about five times here tonight. I have Virtualbox 4.2 installed, with USB pack also installed. I have installed and an XP machine in it. Downloading HP Officejet 6500 software for XP. I will see if I can get it to print for a start.
In Ubuntu 4.02 all I could get the 6500 to do was print and basic scan. Downloaded HPLIP no drivers for OJ6500.
