General Help & Advice / Re: Starting SAMBA at boot up
« on: April 28, 2011, 01:00:21 pm »

Thank you.

Thanks for all the information.

Have ordered a card from a maker on the list that you linked too.  Also had positive reviews from Linux users in regards to working out of the box.

Will add something here when it arrives.

I know PCMCIA is a bit old-hat but as I am trying Linux out on a 12 year old laptop it is a requirement.

This box only has one USB port 1.1v so a usb connection will only work at around 36mbs and not 54mbs.

My present PCMCIA card is very poor performance keeps dropping the connection - PEAK 802.11g  type WG2400 http://www.peakhardware.com/products/productdetail.asp?PAID=42# but then it was nothing to write home about under Windows XP.

Thanks for your help.

Can anyone recommend a card that works on Linux (Peppermint) out of the box?

Thank you in advance.

General Help & Advice / Starting SAMBA at boot up
« on: April 27, 2011, 05:37:18 pm »
Dear All,

It seems that the reason that I can't use my network (Wi-Fi) Linux and Windows Boxes is that SAMBA is not running after the system boots or reboots.

Can anyone suggest how to make SAMBA start during the boot up stage.

I am running Peppermint-One.

Thanks.

Hi,

Read outs as follows -
lsusb
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub

sane-find-scanner

  # sane-find-scanner will now attempt to detect your scanner. If the
  # result is different from what you expected, first make sure your
  # scanner is powered up and properly connected to your computer.

  # No SCSI scanners found. If you expected something different, make sure that
  # you have loaded a kernel SCSI driver for your SCSI adapter.

  # No USB scanners found. If you expected something different, make sure that
  # you have loaded a kernel driver for your USB host controller and have setup
  # the USB system correctly. See man sane-usb for details.

  # Not checking for parallel port scanners.

  # Most Scanners connected to the parallel port or other proprietary ports
  # can't be detected by this program.

  # You may want to run this program as root to find all devices. Once you
  # found the scanner devices, be sure to adjust access permissions as
  # necessary.

The scanner is operated in Wi-Fi mode just like the printer side of the All-in-one.
The printer side is working fine in Wi-Fi mode.

Output as follows -

 1090 pts/0    S+     0:00 grep --colour=auto cups

I ran it a second time and got a slightly different readout -

 1290 pts/0    S+     0:00 grep --colour=auto cups

In both cases the word cups is in red.

Nearly there just the printer to set up and the system will be complete.

I have all the drivers and software required to operate the printer/scanner on Linux.

But how to set it up?  Setup instructions are provided for CUPS V.1.3.9 using an internet browser to connect to the CUPS server http://localhost:631

But this dose not work as firefox returns a host not found report.

My version of CUPS is V.1.4.3-lubuntul.3

Any help would be appreciate.
