Reddit: [QUESTION]GNU/Linux Debian printing configuration

Monday 5th of January 2015 11:11:17 AM


First of all, thank you for taking some of your time to read this.

Secondly, if I write "Linux" please consider it as "GNU/Linux".

As the most tech savy on my family and among my friends, I'm usually the one who's called when someone I know has some problem with his/her computer. Usually I have no problem, but from time to time I have my life made harder because someone is using Windows, or another Linux distro. I use Arch Linux, but usually if I'm installing Linux on someone's else computer I'll probably install other distro, like Mint or Ubuntu or,(and more important to my question), Debian.

Now, I've used most distros out there, but I've used Arch for some years now, so when I sit on other distros and have to some "admin" stuff, I have to scout a little.

Now, on this friend of mine computer, I installed Debian, and the person has a HP printer, and when I installed it, all went fine. Except after a reasonable amount of time, the printer (apparently) stopped being recognised as the printer I had installed. So I just went to cups config page and deleted the, "now not found" printer, and installed it again. Again, it all worked fine, except, now, after a less amount of time it happened again, so:

Could someone tell me if this already happened to some of you?

Also, I'm simply installing and that's it, I don't do much else, Is there anything else I should be doing as well to make sure it keeps detecting the printer as it should?

Thank you in advance. And I apologise if my English ain't the best, non native here:). P.S.: Since I'm already asking, has anyone used Teamviwer on Debian? Or has any suggestion for visual remote control?

TuxMachines: Why does the world still need the Mozilla Foundation?

Monday 5th of January 2015 10:49:38 AM

With its Firefox browser rapidly losing share, and its financial ties to Google finished, the Mozilla Foundation finds itself facing the most pivotal moment in its history since its founding more than a decade ago.

“We’re utterly confident in our stability and viability going forward,” Mozilla chairwoman Mitchell Baker said in a recent interview with Stephen Shankland of Cnet.

But just because the foundation can continue, does that mean it should?

I think there is still an essential role on the web for a non-profit organization that can develop services that may not generate big profits, but where it would be valuable to have a more neutral player.

But at the same time, at this moment, it’s difficult to say what Mozilla is doing that is so essential to the world.

Reddit: Desperately seeking laptop for Linux

Monday 5th of January 2015 10:30:18 AM

I think I'm getting depressed, all of these great companies that sell laptops for linux are merely reselling hardware made out of taiwan. That goes for System76/Zareason and Think Penguin.

I'm looking for a good laptop that has an intel cpu and intel graphics card. I was looking at some thinkpads but I wanted to buy a laptop from someone who would kick up some money to fsf/gnu/etc. Help me plz.

Reddit: How to get the MTP library to mount a Zune media player

Monday 5th of January 2015 05:04:52 AM

Take the above file, and paste it into "~/.mtpz-data". This is the handshake that the computer needs to send to the Zune before files can be transferred to it. Once it is mounted, you can copy files to it just like any regular drive, at about 10MB/s (at least for the original white Zune 30).

It is not as seamless as transferring via the Windows-only Zune Software, and I have never been able to get playlists to work in Linux, but transferring music to it works just fine and it gets detected along with the proper album art if it's hardcoded into the file (I think, it could require a separate file, though).

It's been a while, so I don't remember if you can copy files to the "Podcasts" section of the device and take advantage of the per-file playback position saving.

Only thing I can confirm is that MP3 files can be copied, and are detected under the proper album and artist. After all, this is infinitely more than you can do with the newer iPods in terms of music transfer.

Debian Forked: All for Devuan and Devuan for All?

It is hard to see the direction Devuan will take, given that the project is still in its early days. The new community could create a shallow derivative, or it could fork the entire Debian archive. Another option is to try replacing Debian entirely and become a new gateway between upstream projects and users of all packages, which would require a lot more manpower and infrastructure. Read more
