Try using Yum instead of the graphical add/remove thing. If yum can't automatically find the repository then edit this location :
/etc/yum.repos.d/

the command line option to install is :

#yum install your_desired_package

Hope this will help

How can i solve lp5 code error of my pc?


After researching what this code may mean there seems to be some kind of .exe modification done with some sort of software a game or demo software you may have loaded either knowing or not knowing this. Remove your latest demo software's after this happened. Kids are notorious for getting this sort of thing on the parents computers. When they are searching for games or other free software or freeware to download.
I think it is a software issue from a previous download. Remove any software that you may have installed before the error occurred. Another thing I would do if this was me is download CCleaner it is a great cleaner program that will assist with registry errors and remove program errors as well.
Also you may want to download Spybot Search and Destroy as well I use both of these freeware programs they remove add ware and spy ware, mail ware etc off of your machine automatically. John

I got error on printer LBP2900 when connect to my laptop (windows 7) It show communication error but usb connection and software installation no problem. Any idea about it?


Most likely it is a corrupt software installation.
You can try the easy things first: 1) Unplug the USB cable from the computer 2) Reboot 3) Plug the USB cable back into the computer, see if the communication error happens again
If that doesn't work, time to reinstall the software: 1) Go to Control Panel > Add Remove Programs OR Programs (depending on which version of Windows you have) 2) Remove every piece of software related to your printer 3) Unplug the USB cable from your computer 4) Reboot 5) Disable any Anti-Virus or Firewall software that you have running 6) Re-run the printer installation software

Error 1721


Try the following regardless of the software as this is the common error message provided by Microsoft. Of course this won't rule out either a corrupt installer or incompatibility's
  1. Disable/Configure any anti-spyware or anti-virus software on your system during installation process. For example: Spybot Search and Destroy Program or Norton Anti-Virus
  2. Check to see if any spyware or adware is installed on your system blocking the completion of install process.
  3. Check to see if you find any unwanted entry in Add/Remove Programs or Internet Explorer - Add/On's section (Tools - Internet Options - Programs -> Manage Add On's). If you found one, remove/disable this entry.
  4. On Windows Vista, disable UAC (User Access Control) feature for your account
