Question about Computers & Internet

I have an ACER ASPIRE ONE running Linux. I am trying to get it to connect to my network printer with no luck. The setup says it works but nothing goes to the printer. I know the printer works because other computers can print.

    I am trying to connect through my wireless router.

    The printer is a HP CP1518ni. The printer works fine with all of my windows computers. The Linux for the Aspire One is the only one that has a problem. It can not access the printer nor print a test page.

Give this updated HP driver for Linux a try and see if it helps. They say to use the automatic install option.

Why wont my acer netbook allow me to enter the network centre or to connect to virgin internet either wired or wireless. i'm running linux lite not windows


go to the command line and type ifconfig

find the network adapter you are trying to connect with likely eth0 or eth1 if ethernet or wlan0 for wifi

then type

dhclient wlan0 (or whatever adapter you're using.)

if this doesn't give you an ip address, the virgin internet access point may not play nice with linux.

Linspire i think you mean....well, frankly I would get PCLinux 2009, this what I use...but, when you setup your system please have it connected through your ethernet as it is being loaded. Then when you wish to do it wirelessly, do it through the wireless connectivity setup in either Linspire or whatever version of linux you wish to use. It works extremely well on my dell Latitude with no problems.

How to connect LG Arena to Acer Aspire One with Linux linpus?


You need your to connect your Aspire to a network on which there is a device that does have a CD drive. Share the CD drive with the network and you are home free.

That is how I get stuff onto my Aspire One.

As for connecting your cell phone to the device - sorry. I dont know how to do that.

If you need help with sharing your CD device or setting up a network, you can ask Windows how to do that. If you dont have a wireless router, you will need one. Oh yes, and a second computer. IF you dont have a second computer, borow one from a friend.

If you need more help ... Id like to give it a try.

Can not down load msn


If you have linux on your aspire 1 then you can't use the original messenger because it is made for windows systems. you can try using it with Wine or find a linux messenger replacement.

for example Pidgin works with MSN accounts and it has a linux version.
http://www.pidgin.im/

"
IM all your friends in one place Pidgin is an easy to use and free chat client used by millions. Connect to AIM, MSN, Yahoo, and more chat networks all at once."
