91  Assistance / Configuring Pardus / Re: Installing Canon MF4150 printer on: April 23, 2012, 21:30:15 PM
Hi Anglo,

I have had to boot into Windows with my previous scanner to work, it being a stand alone Canon scanner.  And like you suggested, I would save the file to my removable and print it in Pardus. 

Vuescan is working fine in Pardus, but I will give it a bit more testing before I decide to hand over forty dollars.

Thanks for the reply.

My ip3000 print head no longer works with colours, even after cleaning printer ports, so we got a new printer.   Roll Eyes  Do I dare say it is a Canon MX410?  Yep, that is what we ended up with.  Anyway, it's another multifunctional printer/scanner/fax like the one in this thread.  I was wondering if you were able to get the scanner to work?  I tried installing the canon linux drivers (driver for the printer and for the scanner) for this unit, but didn't have success.
There is a cups printer driver available in Pardus for the mx410 when I use the 'add printer' and test page works, but when I run skanlite it says no devices found.  Installed xsane and the same output. If one doesn't mind paying for software, there is an easy solution: [url:http://www.hamrick.com]Vuescan[/url]  .  

I read somewhere that one can scan using GIMP.  Does anyone know about this?
Thanks, Lisa Marie

When I've had problems with incorrect time is when I install another linux distro and suddenly my other distro's clock will show back or forward 4 hours.  I then have to reset my BIOS clock and all is well. 

You are doing it correctly, if it asks for your admin password when you hit 'apply' in the time/date GUI and then ok.  Wait one minute and the correct time will show in your toolbar clock.  I just tried mine out.  If I set the clock ahead an hour, it will also set my BIOS clock ahead an hour.  If I reset my BIOS clock to back to correct hour, it automatically resets Pardus os clock correctly.

Here are some command lines. but it has been a while since I've used them as I remember having problems understanding the difference between hardware clock and system time:

hwclock --help
date --help
there's also man pages for both, more detail information.

The following will show current date and time, as well as timezone:
sudo hwclock -r

95  Assistance / Bugs / Re: bangarang won't play dvd, looking for libavformat.so.52 on: February 29, 2012, 18:13:06 PM
Hi atolboo,
To clarify, old bangarang would crash when selecting 'play DVD with bangarang' in device notifier.  I see from bangarang home page that this was a known bug. 

Latest bangarang with latest ffmpeg would play picture when selected to 'play DVD with bangarang' in device notifier, but no sound.  Also, to try from command line "bangarang play-dvd' it would only show output: 'Disc in /dev/sr0 is a Video DVD' and not play sound or video.

But your suggestion to try VLC backend for phonon gives me both picture and sound when I choose either to play dvd disc from device notifier or when I use command line, 'bangarang play-dvd' but with this latter method, I have to choose 'media lists' and select the disc entry from the left pane.  It doesn't automatically play the disc upon command, 'bangarang play-dvd'.

Also, the bangarang 'show audio settings', under 'audio settings' I can now  access the audio channel but not the equilizer which remains grayed out.

When I had gstreamer as backend, I could play any DVD (commercial or one that I had backed up) with smplayer.  When I did test to revert back to gstreamer backend, I got a kde knofity crash. 

And no, having vlc as phonon backend still does not do anything when I select the speaker test. 
P.S.  I had to reboot for the change of phonon backend to work.

A few minutes later...
I have sound.
I didn't use device notifier to "play DVD with bangarang",
instead, I went to file manager, left pane, double clicked on JUPITER_MOON listing, and right clicked on video_ts folder, "open with bangarang" and now is picture and sound.
The only other thing is that audio settings remain inaccessible (grayed out).

As a side note, I have never been able to get sound from the Phonon Sound and Video Configuration GUI.  Clicking on Front Left and Front Right does nothing.  Maybe means something, maybe not.
97  Assistance / Bugs / Re: bangarang won't play dvd, looking for libavformat.so.52 on: February 28, 2012, 15:05:52 PM
Next day, so more time to play with bangarang and this time chose a video_ts folder under my Videos directory.  I right clicked on video_ts folder and "play with bangarang" and I get both video and audio with it, so that part is successful. 

I am now trying the another DVD disc with command line again, "bangarang play-dvd --debug" and no Warning is shown, still no audio, still no access to audio settings, but these lines are shown (probably has nothing to do with audio):

Using djbfft for IMDCT transform
QObject::connect: Cannot queue arguments of type 'MediaSource'

Thank you!

I installed the test version you shared and now bangarang doesn't crash when I click on DVD from device notifier and it plays the video fine, but there is no sound.  I also notice that under audio settings (audio channel, equalizer) are grayed out where I can't access them, which probably has to do with why I am getting no sound from this player. 

I tried this version with both the recent ffmpeg version and also reverted back to the version of ffmpeg and x264 you suggested.  No difference.  I have gstreamer as phonon backend.

As a side note, I wanted to say "thanks!" for this version of Opera offered by parduser.  I'm pleased with the included bookmarks AnyBeat and search engine, Duck Duck Go.

Hi anglo and atolboo,
yes, I did think it was a matter of something needing catching up with another library, and no hurry on this, I just wanted to let pardususer folks know. 
Again, much obliged!

I installed Bangarang player from pardususer and it won't play movie DVD.  I tried in console,
bangarang play-dvd
bangarang play-dvd
Disc in /dev/sr0 is a Video DVD
Disc in /dev/sr0 is a Video DVD
Disc in /dev/sr0 is a Video DVD

then in bangarang gui clicked on medialists and clicked on the DVD:

libdvdread: Using libdvdcss version 1.2.10 for DVD access
libdvdnav: Using dvdnav version 4.1.4
libdvdread: Using libdvdcss version 1.2.10 for DVD access
libdvdnav: DVD Title: LIE_TO_ME_S1_D4
libdvdnav: DVD Serial Number: 3af0a108
libdvdnav: DVD Title (Alternative):
libdvdnav: Unable to find map file '/home/me/.dvdnav/LIE_TO_ME_S1_D4.map'
libdvdnav: DVD disk reports itself with Region mask 0x00f60000. Regions: 1 4

libdvdread: Attempting to retrieve all CSS keys
libdvdread: This can take a _long_ time, please be patient
and further down in console:
"GStreamer-WARNING **: Failed to load plugin '/usr/lib/gstreamer-0.10/libgstffmpeg.so': libavformat.so.52: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory".  So, it is looking for libavformat.so.52, but there is only x.so and x.so.53 and x.so.53.31.100.

102  Assistance / Configuring Pardus / Re: The main problem of Pardus on: February 26, 2012, 16:08:02 PM
Sandro, when I first read your post, I thought of how wonderful it was when Pardus had Kaptan taking care of network configuration, and how it is sorely missing in the latest Pardus. 

Yes, Debian and all of its derivatives have /etc/network/interfaces, and Redhat and its offshoots  have /etc/sysconfig, but Pardus does not have anything similar.   Maybe /etc/mudur comes close. 

I don't know if it will set up a network by command line, but I was looking at ifcfg and ifconfig.

103  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / Re: trouble listening to sound at web page with Firefox [solved] on: February 26, 2012, 16:02:16 PM
Thanks for the link, zvacet.  Waiting upon registration.

anglo, yes, normally I disable all of the plugins just to make surfing faster, as I rarely use them.  I enabled all but those two you said.  This morning the babelnation site's music symbol button works with 'test, one, two', but I think there is something wrong with their flashplayer links to the vowel sound arrows as they don't do anything in any browser I've tried.  That site also made Konqueror and Arora browsers crash, so I'll write them off.

Still, I am curious why Konqueror wants to find netscape plugin folder under /home folder.  There is the .mozilla folder, but nothing under home folder has any netscape plugins. 

anglo, it amazes me how most Americans can only speak one language.  Its almost shameful.

Thanks anglo.  And yes, after installing Opera, no hidden netscape folder in home directory.  Oh well.  I thought I was on to something, but you did try those pages with each step of Firefox updates, and all worked.  Must be something else. 

You know, someone at another forum mentioned to our regular German member that Dusseldorf was a funny sounding word.  He said it didn't sound funny to him, as he grew up with the word and has or had an aunt that lived there.  I thought, hmmm, I bet it doesn't sound funny when spoken in its native tongue.  That's how I ended up finding those sites.  They are pretty good, aren't they? I've always wanted to learn German and nowadays with all of the free tools out there available, there isn't an excuse.  And no, I now do not think Düsseldorf sounds funny as the end is more like doff, barely pronouncing the 'r' , unlike the sound 'or' sound as in dork, or dorky dude, depending on when you grew up.  Grin
Thanks again.   Tomorrow is another day.

Hi anglo,
Yeah, I may have missed something, going quickly through to try and figure out what was wrong, so I can't be specific.  If I have the time, I just might revert back to the previous version of what was updated today to see.  Curious.  The other updates that I did today also included:
    * firefox is upgraded from 10.0.1-168-p11-x86_64 to 10.0.2-169-p11-x86_64.
    * x264 is upgraded from 0.0_20110615-34-p11-x86_64 to 0.0_20120220-36-p11-x86_64.
    * ffmpeg is upgraded from 0.6.1_20110105-95-p11-x86_64 to 0.10-97-p11-x86_64.
    * podofo is upgraded from 0.8.2-7-p11-x86_64 to 0.8.4-8-p11-x86_64.
    * vlc-libs is upgraded from 1.1.12-58-p11-x86_64 to 1.1.13-59-p11-x86_64.
    * libgadu

Another thing to note.  I then tried with konqueror browser, my favourite browser, and got the message that a flash plugin was not installed, and would I like to install it.  Huh?  It's there.  So in konqueror went to Plugins, under Settings, clicked on the Plugin tab, and clicked on Scan for Plugins.  It then worked for this site:


but I noticed after the scan, there is a question mark after netscape plugins, which should be in home folder: home/.netscape, but there is no such folder on my computer.  Maybe this comes with one of the other browser I don't have installed, like Chromium or Opera.   Can anyone check if they have this netscape folder, a hidden folder in their home directory?  Thank you!

P.S. duh, Netscape, isn't it what Opera used to be at one time, Netscape, the browser my husband bought back in '96 for us to use to avoid IE.  Just to let you know, I'm downloading Opera, as I kept seeing an ns something error at that one site, I assume ns is netscape.
