Are you using xmodmap? I ran into issues with my xmodmap configuration

due to the underlying keycodes changing.

Hola!



I am connected to a (non-local) printer on the local network. The printer

works nice from windows macines, but from ubuntu

(neither 8.04 nor 8.10) am I able to print. What might be the problem. I am

using the troubleshooting guide, which cannot

solve the problem, but gives the following information output:



Page 1 (Choose printer):

{'cups_dest': <cups.Dest object at 0x8c4de40>,

*'cups_instance': None,

*'cups_queue': 'LaserJet-1005',

*'cups_queue_listed': True}

Page 2 (Check printer sanity):

{'cups_device_uri_scheme': u'socket',

*'cups_printer_dict': {'device-uri': u'socket://

172.16.150.143/Impresora:9100',

* * * * * * * * * * * 'printer-info': u'LaserJet-1005',

* * * * * * * * * * * 'printer-is-shared': True,

* * * * * * * * * * * 'printer-location': u'172.16.150.143/Impresora',

* * * * * * * * * * * 'printer-make-and-model': u'HP LaserJet 1005

* * * * * * * * * * * 'printer-state': 3,

* * * * * * * * * * * 'printer-state-message': u'No %%BoundingBox: comment

* * * * * * * * * * * 'printer-state-reasons': [u'connecting-to-device'],

* * * * * * * * * * * 'printer-type': 36868,

* * * * * * * * * * * 'printer-uri-supported':

u'ipp://localhost:631/printers/LaserJet-1005'},

*'is_cups_class': False}

Page 3 (Printer state reasons):

{'printer-state-message': 'No %%BoundingBox: comment in header!',

*'printer-state-reasons': 'connecting-to-device'}

Page 4 (Print test page):

{'test_page_attempted': True,

*'test_page_job_id': [13],

*'test_page_job_status': [(13, 'LaserJet-1005', 'Test Page')],

*'test_page_successful': False}

Page 5 (Printer state reasons):

{'printer-state-message': 'Attempting to connect to host 172.16.150.143 on

port 9100',

*'printer-state-reasons': 'connecting-to-device'}





Hopefully this can lead somebody to a solution.



Greetings,



Kjetil

"Perhaps there is no such thing as unilateral power. After all, the man 'in

power' depends on receiving information all the time from outside. He

responds to that information just as much as he 'causes' things to

happen...it is an interaction, and not a lineal situation. But the myth of

power is, of course, a very powerful myth, and probably most people in this

world more or less believe in it. It is a myth, which, if everybody believes

in it, becomes to that extent self-validating. But it is still

epistemological lunacy and leads inevitably to various sorts of disaster."

Of course not...they get filtered to trash.

This address is specifically for mailing list. *I get no html messages here.

I have another for HTML, stuff like emails from "The Washington Post,"

"Politico" and "The Writer's Almanac."



I read this list with Mutt and the other with Thunderbird, which renders

html formatted mail just fine, and I find much worth in those web pages sent

as email. *It's much easier for me to have them sitting in my inbox ready to

read with my morning coffee than it is to go seek out the material from a

dozen places each morning.



I have a thrid account for family and friends. *As I am the only Linux user

in my family, and they all use Outlook despite my years of discouragement, I

find quite a lot of value in reading their emails to me (even if they are

formatted in html), and I value communication with them far above any piece

of software.



I agree this and other mailing lists of this sort are no more the place for

html than usenet, but the value in an email is in its content, not its

formatting.



If the formatting prevents one from viewing the content, then you've got a

problem, but I structure my accounts so that I am able to communicate with

the people I value and get the information I value regardless of the

formatting.



Everything else we read from books to web pages to magazines to catalogs to

comic books to bills allows for special formatting and rich text. *When

bandwidth was expensive and modems slow and connects cost per minute, plain

text was essential.



Now it's less so, and while people who use html on usenet or mailing lists

might be rude or uninformed they are not evil and stupid with nothing of

value to say.



One's choice of email formatting is not a moral category. *It's more like if

you visit someone's home and they take their shoes off at the door you do

also. *If the list discourages or bans HTML messages, you don't send them.



As this is a highly flame-able topic and off-topic this will be my only

comment on the subject.

Here is the help wiki with lots of useful information.

You can also use the 'Help' button in the menus for documentation
specific to the version of Ubuntu you are using.

good luck,
