Large red dot which contains a minus sign in display of printer

Hello,
I previously posted:
I have the HP Laserjet Pro 400Color M451nw installed with 
3.14.3-0ubuntu3.2 in Ubuntu 14.04.
It basically prints but is somewhat slow. The printers icon shows a 
large red dot with a minus sign which I believe indicates that " 
cups-ipp-missing-send document" is missing
Any one know how to correct this?

I got no replies about this.
I will appreciate some help on this problem.
Thanks
Don

Regex in find command

I tried all the different regextypes mentioned in the man pages, but no success:

emacs (default)
posix-basic
posix-awk
posix-egrep
posix-extended

Neither of them understod this:
find $Path … -some_options -type d -regex ".*[0-9]{4,5}"

This worked well with several regex types:
find $Path … -some_options -type d -regex ".*[0-9]{4}"

And of course, this worked well in all cases:
find $Path … -some_options -type d -regex ".*[0-9]+"

Is the {x,y} syntax not supported in find?


Kind regards

Johnny Rosenberg

Moving my Ubuntu "partition"


> Today's Topics:

 What I want to do is migrate Ubuntu- operating  system and the files I
 collected to another PC so I can use this one for other things. 
 plus learn some practical activity.

Moving the hard drive to the other PC is not what I wanted to do. I need
something like copying Ubuntu and the rest onto a CD/DVD and copying the
CD/DVD onto the HD of the other PC and have a "live" Ubuntu.

Thanks for listening!

S. Shahin

ubunt 15.04 still problems with kate & fish

 Hi there,

some month ago I got help regarding the fact that the kate editor does not really support the fish protocol from its file open dialog.

the following does not work:
when I try to open a remote file from kates open dialog:

File name:fish://root <at> urgestein/etc/hosts


i get a error box with the following error message:


hosts


File not found.

Please verify the correct file name was given.

p, li { white-space: pre-wrap; }

however, if I load the same file from the command line:
robert <at> lappi:~$ kate fish://root <at> urgestein/etc/hosts

the file is loaded as expected.


now I would like to file a ticket, hoping that this probably minor "defect" is fixed for the upcoming 15.1 release.
But I do knot know where I can file such a ticket.

thanks
robert

Ubuntu-mate 1504 incomparibility with Celeron CPU

Thank you for that.

First problem noted with Ubuntu-mate 1504 (posted here, due to lack of
users mailing list for Ubuntu-mate) -

I have tried to install, as a first trial, Ubuntu-mate 1504 i386 on my
HP Compacq NX5000 laptop which has an Intel Celeron CPU.

At
https://ubuntu-mate.org/vivid/
is

"
Ubuntu MATE is currently available for four architectures, PC (Intel
x86), 64-bit PC (AMD64), Mac (PowerPC) and IBM-PPC (POWER5) and
Raspberry Pi 2 aarch32 (ARMv7).

    PC (Intel x86) For almost all PCs. This includes most machines
with Intel/AMD/etc type processors and almost all computers that run
Microsoft Windows, as well as newer Apple Macintosh systems based on
Intel processors. Choose this if you are at all unsure.
"

The computer would not boot the iso DVD.

Error returned:
"feature not present on CPU
pae
"

So it appears that the Ubuntu-mate 1504 x86 (or i386) iso is not
compatible with Intel Celeron CPU's?

Wily-Next Password

Ok I did get Next by mistake, but now I have it I would at least like to give 
it a go

When I try to boot it asks for a password,

I have tried the "work around" that was posted in a forum 

>Switch to vt1 (ctrl-alt-f1)
>type "passwd" and press enter
>press enter again to set the current password to blank
>enter a new password twice
>Check that the password has been successfully changed
>Switch back to vt7 (ctrl-alt-f7)
>Enter the new password to login

But vt1 also requires a password so that is no help

Something unknown listening on ports 80 and 443

Hello,

I have a PC with Ubuntu 14.04. I tried to map the open ports on it with nmap.

If I do it locally, I get that :
$ nmap localhost
...
PORT    STATE SERVICE
22/tcp  open  ssh
631/tcp open  ipp
...

(ipp is listening only locally, no problem here)


But after trying from my laptop, I see the HTTP (80) and HTTPS (443) ports open :
$ nmap X.X.X.X
...
PORT    STATE SERVICE
22/tcp  open  ssh
80/tcp  open  http
443/tcp open  https
...

I re-installed Ubuntu some days ago and I didn't install any Web server, or anything that could listen on these ports. I don't want anything but ssh listening on this computer.

How do I find what's listening on the 80 and 443 ports ? And what is susceptible of listening on a newly installed Ubuntu 14.04 ? I thought that a fresh Ubuntu install had all ports closed.

Thanks !

How to change scrolling in Ubuntu

Hello.

In Ubuntu, in some applications, the standrad scrolling method, is
applicable, along the side or the bottom of the scroolable area, is a
bar thing, that can be drawn, with the pointing device, to the
position that the user wants, and, in that, the drawing is
continuously variable.

Howebver, in Ubuntu, the system scrolling method, involves not a
visble scrolling thing to be drawn with the pointing device, to where
the user wants, but is a discrete thing, that, when the user positions
the cursor over an appropriate edge of the "scrollable" area, a thing
with two arrow heads, is displayed, for the user to click on one of
the arrow heads, so the "scrollable" area will be moved, in discrete
distances of a screen at a time, and, it is not continuously variable,
but, being discrete, usually travels too far.

So, when Ubuntu applies this discrete form of "scrolling", does
provision exist, to cahnge, especially on a system-wide basis, the
scrolling, to the older way of the continuously variable scrolling,
with the bars that can be drawn using the pointing device, to move the
displayed area to where the user wants it to be?

If such provision exists, to reconfigure the scrolling, how can we
change the scrolling?

Thank you in anticipation.
