Re: laserjet printer

At the hplip support page for the p1606dn here: http://hplipopensource.com/hplip-web/mo ... 606dn.html, it says it requires a downloadable driver plug-in which I think you install with hp-setup.

Re: Not success to install Debian 4.9 kernel

If the OP is running mx16, then there is a little.mistake. those kernel options should only appear in mx17 alpha right now. I'm also seeing it recommend the 4.9 kernel on my MX-16.1 install and I do have the mx15/main version mx-packageinstaller-pkglist installed. Looking at /usr/share/mx-packagein...

Re: screen display

unfortunately .... nothing with the command sudo make-xorg-conf 1280x..... -o /etc/X11/xorg.conf Did you actually use the 1280x1024 resolution like example shown in the wiki? If you did try changing it instead to the 1920x1080 resolution that you really want. sudo make-xorg-conf 1920x1080 -o /etc/X...

Re: Check for Updates when Package Box is Empty

For the most part I think the updated packages should all be in the repos when the notifier is indicating that updates are available, and it shouldn't matter whether you wait for the daily update or do it manually. I say that because I think .debs and source gets uploaded first, then the index files...

Re: ukuu

Never heard of Ukuu. I've been trying different ubuntu kernels though, like the one shown below, but I download them manually from: http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/ and install with gdebi. I only download and install the linux-image-* packages, don't bother with the headers because the...

You didn't provide the testparm results, just smbclient and smbtree ones. ...

Testparm is also installed by the samba-common-bin package, I would make sure it's installed.

Re: Has something changed recently that would prevent browsing network shares?

the output from nmblookup indicates that nmblookup is not installed. Did a bit of googling and I guess it's supposed to be installed with smb-client? which is installed. So I have no idea. ... dpkg -S shows that nmblookup is installed with the samba-common-bin package. $ dpkg -S nmblookup samba-com...
