    RE: Problem printing to Brother DCP-J315W through USB port
    There might be the wrong model/printer configuration is making this problems. Plz check..... 1. Check your loaded Modules 2. See if the USB Printer Driver is listed 3. Look at the Kernel Log for usb traffic 4. Look at the list of Attached Devices However you can try this URL: http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/BSC/public/eu/eu_ot/en/model_top/colormfc/dcpj315w_eu_as.html?reg=eu&c=eu_ot&lang=en&prod=dcpj315w_eu_as

    RE: mint 11 wireless adapter driver
    Most wireless adapters are not designed for use in Linux and depend on non-free proprietary drivers and firmware which inevitably leads to problems. There has been a significant effort by the Linux community and some manufacturers to improve this situation and most recently released Linux distributions will support a significant number of wireless cards. Follow the following steps may help u to overcome this issue..... Plug the router into internet socket if u want to share internet. Next plug router into PC with an Ethernet cable. Go to browser and type in the address like 192.168.0.1 (in most cases, else u have to type whatever u got). Type username / pass from router. Now enable wireless and set encryption mode either(WEP /WPA) and type a memorable passkey. Now it is time to detect the wireless...... The wireless adapter should be detected automatically by the dist(Mint) & should be available in dist's network config tools ! If it is not detected then do the steps: Type iwconfig into the terminal to see what wireless network interfaces have been detected. Next type sudo lshw (or lspci or lsusb) to list hardware and get details on the chipset that the card uses. As u r using Linux Mint, in this case u have to use MintWifi. U may need to use ndiswrapper and Windows driver, look up the ndiswrapper documentation for further helps. Here u can connect to use NetworkManager there should be an icon near the clock which u can click on and choose encryption either(WEP /WPA) & type passkey.

    RE: how to setup usb modem on ubuntu
    Most probably ur wvdial is wrong ! It might be like this: [Dialer Defaults] Modem Type = Analog Modem Phone = *99# ISDN = 0 Baud = 460800 Username = " " (ur user name, if don't know, contact ur vendor) Password = " " (ur password) Modem = /dev/ttyUSB0 Init1 = ATZ Init2 = at+cgdcont=1,"ip","ericssonnet" after giving the permission as: sudo chmod 777 /etc/wvdial.conf Now u have to create new file in /etc/udev/rules.d and rename it as 15-huawei-e1550.rules and type contents like.... SUBSYSTEM=="usb", SYSFS{idProduct}=="", (here u put ur lsbusb output) SYSFS{idVendor}=="12d1", Connect ur usb modem & wait till icon appears on desktop. (restart optional)...... open terminal and type wvdial if the connection is not established properly, then u have to dnld the file called, usb-modeswitch_1.0.2-1_i386.deb from net and after install/conf u may browse.

    If u installed this under /usr/java then make a symbolic link to /usr/bin like: ln -s /usr/java/jre1.7.0_07/java /usr/bin

    There r so many distro that can provide u what u want, just look for the right distro that suits ur requirements. U may try Linux Mint / Suse Linux / Ubuntu / Fedora.

    RE: Ubuntu server 12.04 Finishing installation loop
    Try to reinstall the same as u did earlier, just reinstall, not going to format..... and again if it asks for the same words, don't detach the usb and hope after completion u will get a menu to boot from hard disk also in spite of attaching USB. or u can make 1st boot device of ur hard disk going to BIOS setup after finishing the installation and reboot immediately.

    RE: Need Help With Dual Boot Install.
    According to Plan A- There is no probs to install Linux on another partition (extended) but be careful during partition, don't accept system proposal, best to select custom partition and declare partition as u need. Plan B - U may take a look at:www.pendrivelinux.com/ where u can find all of ur answers. and also see here: http://askubuntu.com/questions/129901/how-to-install-ubuntu-12-04-with-pendrive-linux as u work from flash drive, it is necessary to make boot sequence to boot from flash drive first !! No, it doesn't make any harm of ur Wind 7 OS. Yes, u may install other necessary SWs on the same drive. Plan C - If u r a new babie in Linux OS, then No, not necessary to format HDD and install Linux as standalone OS (See Plan -A). If u r expert then u may go for format and install Linux as single OS. Plan D - Using 7 u can not get understand of Linux though Windows 7 has some features that likely to Unix/Linux OS (referring to inner mechanism). 7 can't help u at all in this scenario. Best to install all necessary SWs on Linux OS and start to gather knowledge of OSS. One Last Item - Open terminal and type as: uname -mrs (for kernel version/PC architecture) cat /etc/*-release (for full history about OS) or lsb_release -a or more /proc/version

    RE: Lightweight/fast/stable distro which supports high-end machines?
    Linux is the best choice to support any amount of RAM, CPU etc, but distro may vary one to one. Technically can install just a bootloader and the kernel alone, but as soon as the kernel boots, it complains about not being able to start "init", then it just sits there and u can't do anything with it. It is part of bootloader that is in the MBR. The kernel sits somewhere on the regular area of a disk. The bootloader is configured to know where that is, so it can load the kernel and execute it. LFS / Minix have a good idea to figure out how to build a minimum system. U can also navigate Linux From Scratch: www.linuxfromscratch.org/
