Most modules are available from CPAN - the Comprehensive Perl Archive Network. They are supplied in what is known as a tarball. A tarball is a gzip compressed tar file. When a module is made the directory structure it lives in is converted to a single file that contains both the files and the directory information. A program called tar performs this function and the resultant file is called a tar file. Tar files have a .tar file extension. This tar file is then compressed using the gzip (GNU Zip) program. Gzipped files have a .gz extension thus a standard module will be called something like:
Some-Module-0.01.tar.gz The first part is the name, the next part the version number and the last part the .tar.gz extension signifying that this is a tarball. You uncompress a tarball using the tar program like this (the $ represents the command prompt):
$ tar -zxvf Some-Module-0.01.tar.gz All *nix systems will have a tar program. On windows you can use CYGWIN which is a set of UNIX tools ported to Win32 to get tar but programs like WinZip will handle extracting tarballs just fine.
One issue with Winzip is that it does not deal well with .tar.tar as an extension. Fix it by changing the extension to tar.gz. Once your have extracted your tarball you then need to make and install your files. You do that like this. At the command prompt navigate your way to the directory created where you extracted the tarball. Making your extractions in a /temp dir is a good idea in case of problems with badly made distributions. There may be several directories to move through. In our hypothetical example above we would expect the tarball to extract into a directory called "Some-Module-0.01", however it may extract to "Some" or even straight into the current working directory (this is not fun to clean up, thus the suggestion of using a /temp dir). Within this module directory we should find a file called "Makefile.PL" although it *may* be several dirs deep. Once you find the Makefile.PL you do the following:
$ perl Makefile.PL
$ make
$ make test
$ make install This should all proceed smoothly and your module should be installed, if not see below. Note on Win32 you will need to use a program called nmake. You can get a copy from M$ here: nmake via FTP or here nmake via HTTP Once you have downloaded it you need to run the program (it self extracts) and make sure that you do this in a directory that is on your PATH. The PATH is a list of directories that Win32 will search for executable files. When you type nmake you want Windows to be able to find the program so it must be in one of the directories on the PATH. To see your current PATH type PATH at the command prompt. C:\WINDOWS or C:\WINNT will be a fairly safe bet.
Now that you have got nmake and extracted it in a directory on your PATH you just do this:
C:\> perl Makefile.PL
C:\> nmake
C:\> nmake test
C:\> nmake install
Ok either everything went fine or you got some errors. Note in the following read nmake for make if your are on Win32

Replacing battteries in a SYBATT

Very easy to do. Either buy the batteries your self and open the module. If the batteries are too swollen, the casing on the battery modules are no good any more. You will have a difficult time removing the modules in and out of the UPS. Type of battery is a 7-12
7amp/Hr - 12volt

Batteries are tied in series and always test polarity after you put the battery modules back together. There is black connector on the end of the module. MAKE SURE NOT TO SHORT with you Meter Leads.

The whole problem seemed to be tied up with McAfee antivirus. It seems that this program runs its own firewall settings that sometimes interfere with the computer's communication. Once this program was removed and another antivirus installed, but problem was resolved.

Printer set-up

Go to this link and then to the support section. You then need to find the software for your specific model of printer. this is the same or maybe updated software that came with your printer.
Before you run this software go into add remove programs on your computer (this is done through the control panel) and make sure that all software that has anything to do with Lexmark is um-installed. run the program from the website and your problem should be solved. As a Little side note, if the printer connects to your computer with a USB cable then make sure the printer is physically disconnected from the computer before running the program from the web site.
Hope this helps

Installation for canon pixma ip 1500

Hey you again, you rated me yesterday Inappropriate. Actually, fixya expert afraid to give some solution because you will rated us Inappropriate even the problem is came from you where you was not clearly stated your problem.

Ok, but anyway I am still to help you, Is it the problem goes to the manual installation you need or the driver instead?

Printers used to be the bugbear of computer users. They were difficult to set up and ornery in operation. That's no longer the case and it's likely you'll have no problems getting your printer up and running. This is particularly the case if your printer comes packaged with your computer system or if you stick to well-known brands such as Hewlett-Packard, Epson, Lexmark and Canon.
Connecting a printer involves four steps:
  1. Unpacking your printer, removing any packaging material and installing the ink or toner cartridge. Refer to your printer's instructions to guide you.
  2. Connecting the printer cable to the printer and to the back of your computer.
  3. Connecting the printer's power cord to a power outlet.
  4. Installing the printer driver and any additional software. The printer driver is a piece of software that tells your computer how to interact with your printer.
If your printer comes as part of your system, you may find that its driver is already installed. In that case, all you'll need to do is unpack it, connect the printer cable and power cord and switch on your computer.
geekgirl.tip: Get a cable One word of warning: Make sure you purchase a printer cable! Often, this is not included in your computer system, despite it being an essential item. You'll need the correct type of cable for your printer: If it's a USB-enabled printer, you need a USB cable (note, the new USB 2 cables work with older USB 1 printers, too; so if in doubt, get a USB 2 cable); if it's a parallel printer, you'll need a parallel cable.
Make sure you get a cable long enough to reach easily from your printer to your computer. However, you should avoid cables longer than 10', because long cables can cause problems with communication between printer and computer. Try to position your printer so a 6' (or shorter) cable can make the connection.
Follow the wizard If your printer's software has not been pre-installed, read any installation instructions that accompany your printer and follow those instructions. If no instructions are provided, follow this procedure:
(Note: This procedure applies to printers which use a parallel connection. If your printer uses a USB connection, you should connect it while Windows is running and it will be recognised.)
  1. Make sure you have your original Windows CD-ROM handy. You may need it.
  2. Switch the computer off.
  3. Connect the parallel printer cable to your computer.
  4. Connect the printer's power cord to a power outlet.
  5. Switch on the printer and the computer.
  6. In most cases, Windows will detect that you've attached a new hardware device and it will launch the Add Hardware Wizard and attempt to search for the appropriate software. If the wizard doesn't launch and Windows appears to ignore your printer, you can launch the Add Printer wizard yourself by clicking the Start button, selecting Control Panel, clicking Printers And Other Hardware, and then clicking Add Printer.
  7. If the printer is directly connected to your computer, select the Local Printer Attached To This Computer option. If you will be connecting to the printer via a network connection, select the Network Printer option, then click Next.
  8. The wizard will first try to search for any Plug and Play devices (these are components that should, by rights, automatically notify Windows when they're first connected). If the wizard discovers your printer, it will display further instructions to complete the installation. You may need to restart your system to finish.
