  1. I have found the software useful. Its 64 msgs because it contains things like OCR and Scan software that lets you hit scan on the printer and pick which computer and which application to scan to on that computer all from the printer. The all-in-one printers use Their own Scan format (its been open sourced in the SANE project) and use IPP by default on the printer. Connecting to the router could be the issue as Pete_C stated. The router is probably dropping packages, use wire-shark or some other packet scanner to find out.. You probably can not span ports on that router so do the best you can.


  2. In college, I learned how to program in SQL using Oracle 9i running in window. Now six years later, I am trying to program in SQL using MySql running in Linux Fedora Core 11.

    Even though a lot of the basic commands are the same, the way that a user connects to the SQL server and use batch files is different.

    In college(Last time used was in 2004):

    To log on to the server, I believe we had to edit a file to put our account in.

    To run it was @c:\file_name.sql

    Example Windows:

    @c:\populate_database.sql;

    INSERT INTO pet(name,owner,species,sex,birth,death)

    VALUES ('Puffball','Diane','hamster','f','1999-03-30','NULL');

    Example MySql from Tutorial

    LOAD DATA LOCAL INFILE '/path/pet.txt' into TABLE pet;

    Whistler Gwen bird \N 1997-12-09 \N

    The linux gives an error:

    ERROR 1064 (42000): You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near '/home/errol/pets.txt INTO TABLE pet' at line 1

    I am not sure if I missed anything, please let me know.

    If anyone can suggest a good MySql book.

    Thank you.

    mysql on Linux takes the same commands as on windows.. I'm confused on why you would think its different.

  4. sp 3

    all up to date

    have installed , before, after and during. tried it all. used the Windows Cleaning tool to remove all traceses of an install. then go the gambit again

    The error

    "there is not enough storage to install the driver."

    is really throwing me.. never see this error?

    just to test this only happens with audio drivers, look in Sys32 and guess what driver is there.. install any other type of device no issues.


  5. never seen this one, Helping a neighbor install a web cam (Microsoft life cam nx-6000) when installing the USB audio, it gets an error that there is not enough storage to install the driver. there is over 400 gigs of free drive space, and 1 gig of free ram. Page file is at 500 megs of 4 gigs.

    I put in my logic tech web cam, same issue on the USB audio.

    remove everything and start over.. same issue. (rebooted between each removal)

    never seen this error.. Anti-virus shows no issues.


  6. Greets,

    I'm using a dual monitor configuration on Ubuntu 9.10. For the most part it remembers where to place/size windows, however there is one that's not being remembered. I use Pidgin IM for my instant messaging client. It remembers where to place the buddy list, but not the conversation window. It always pops up on my left (secondary) monitor in the top left corner. Is there any way to fix this? Perhaps there is a key in gconf-editor that I can fix? It's not a huge issue, it would just be nice to fix if anyone knows how.

    Thanks! :)

    sorry, I have been trying to figure it out. in KDE I have an option to open programs in the screen the mouse is in.. This is how I manage where they open.


  7. Thanks for the Reply

    We use expensive ones at work, NETIQ has one in a bundle we use, we use them to untangle cross entries, and old entries, and dead entries that are left after many years of group policy changes. We do find when you do things like Install Citrix Xenapp for example, that it has over 300 registry entries. Add to that publishing apps and de-publishing apps, can leave a lot of dead links that you are not going buy hand to remove.

    I will tell the guy who asked that there are no reliable automatic registry checkers for the consumer, as I am not going to loan out the $90,000 NETIQ suite we have.

    thanks


  8. That is a Good point, I am just working on the point that you can not edit that file as a user and need elevated privilege. The ubuntu tool for monitor configuration asked for your password. The nvidia one is a standalone tool and does not check if you have privileges.. it is letting him change the settings, then it sets to monitor to the correct setting, it just will not let him save the settings (its creating a tmp xorg.conf in his folder and restarting the xserver.. I am assuming from his statement

    It will happily change to the new resolution no problems. It just won't save and it goes right back 1024x768 every time you start it up.
    )

    its when he reboots he has to start over..

    but now that I think back it does give a failed to read error when it is just permissions..

    there are a few bug reports that lead me to believe that the nvidia-settings wants a specific layout of the xorg file and when not seeing that it has issues.. they recomend as you to:

    mv or rm the xorg.conf file

    sudo nvidia-xconfig

    gksudo nvidia-settings

    and just tell it to save the settings..


  9. Good evening!

    I just figured out how to start a gnome desktop as root when logging in via VNC, but I had to do a "gnome-session" command at the # prompt. Is there a way to get rid of all the other junk that is in xstartup file so that I can always start gnome, and get rid of this grey screen? I'll need some help here, because I dont wanna run root wide open like this.

    any help you can give me on thgis would be appreciated......

    Thanks,

    Brian

    I am assuming ubuntu or some other GTK desktop with gnome..

    instead of launching a root session as you did, just open the program you what with privilege

    gksudo <program name>

    the Gray screen is the X session so with out that you have no gnome session..

    normally its hidden by the display manager GDM

    you could also do a xhost + as your user and then from the root shell launch your app (I think xhost + localhost: will limit ti to only people on your machine)

    and then a xhost - when done

    if this is a server you should always run as a user who uses root tools with sudo or su -

    This way in the logs you can see who logged in as did what. with SELinux it will show user ran this sudo command in the logs.. if you turn on the correct level of logging

    hope this helps sorry..

    I use NX insted of vnc as its protected in a ssh tunnel.

    or use from a windows box the cygwin x server and log in with a ssh -y

    then launch your app, it will show up on your screen

    VNC is good for remote controlling when someone is logged in and you can see their session.. but other than that, the X server already provides a lot of tools.


  10. OK I changed the resolution to 1280 x 720 and 60 hrz. But it is has to have the over scan on to fit the full TV. So what more can I do?

    OK I have a Intel Mac Mini. I am using DVI to HDMI cable to my TV. I am only able to get 62.3 hrz refresh rate. Also, only able to get 1366 x 768 desktop screen size. I want to have it go all out and be max rez. Also, I noticed that I have to click Overscan in TV Options. So any thoughts would help.

    It sounds like EDID. issue, SwitchResX 4 may fix you issue, but cost $20, you can test for 10 days..

    which version of the OS are you running..

    frq is weird as LCD's normaly are all 60hz unless it is out of range for the TV, a 720p is 1280x720 not 1366x786, which is 1080i(scaled) or HD compatible as it can accept a 1440x1080 resolution and scale it down to the 1366x786. but that is not in the EDID codes so it will fail on a computer not looking for a TV set.. you should try and run at 1280x720 for the best results, unless you have the newer mac mini, as the intel graphics card can not do 1900x1080 for 1080P

    nothing really, Over scan is standard in the TV industry, ,TV's do not need to be 100% as they are not monitors.. so you will have some overscan no matter what PC you use on that TV. More expensive Tv's are really monitors so they do not need the over scan..

    you can try upgrading you cable and see if the mac see's the 720p setting like mine does (I have the same version but I bought two weeks after apple changed the model and got it for 299)

    I use monprice for my av cables.. good prices and good cables.. I paid $4 for a 6ft hdmi 1.3a cable


  11. Hey guys I recently updated my site to a joomla hosted site. http://www.bogointeractive.com and I want to add a few things to it. Mainly I want to add in a google ads app so I can dump the joomla ads. Also I would like to use the Friend Feed or twitter or some type of news feed in the news flash area. Anyone know how to do this? My server admin is really booked up but if anyone can help me, that would be great.

    sorry this took so long. I got around to it yesterday..

    in modules filter for adds and diable

    download this module http://extensions.joomla.org/extensions/243/details

  13. Google held the Chrome OS event this past Thursday and I’ll admit I was excited. Excited to see what Google would bring to the table and how game changing it would be. However, while my excitement is there (mainly due to the inner geek still wanting to try it), I’m a little disappointed with what was announced at the event.

    What about you?

    http://www.besttechie.net/2009/11/21/chrome-os-im-disappointed/

    hmm,

    I was disappointed in the VMware build, it was slow and buggy, but the Thumb drive build.... well let me tell you under 7 sec boot with a E6500 and did 99% of what I do.. internet.. I built an Arcade box running XP to play games , and I have my work laptop for ding diagrams and code writing,,, but the majority of my computer time is just internet.. almost 100% of my company start-up is done with on-line internet tools (if quicken online did not require IE I would be golden...) We build quotes with a ruby application, we use Google for corporate email and document sharing.. it did all of those fast and easy..

    if we could put this on The Touch Book I could take that with Chrome and easily do quotes at customer facilities, gather customer data and read tech manuals..

    In other words for what I and most techs need on site, it does almost everything fast..

    but its not the one ring to rule them all,

    It is not to develop on

    it is not to play games on

    it is not to be an all around OS like the others..

    next I want to build my own and see what I can improve in code for the things I think need added.. but That will require time..

  15. We went out to Fry's tonight and took the first look at cell phones. I like the Droid. I think it's now my first choice.

    The S.O. wants to get a simple to use phone for herself. She's NOT a geek. laugh.gif At first she wanted a dumb phone....just dial and that's it. But she took a liking to the Blackberry Pearl Flip (Verizon).

    Any thoughts on this phone?

    Oh, and it's free with a two year contract. I really like that part!

    Droid

    look at phonedog they have a review Blackberry
