#! printer installation problems

I am really enjoying CrunchBang as it has allowed me to use my little lenovo netbook again, however I am having a few problems.

When I try to set up my wireless printer and I go to menu, system, printers, install printing support, it opens terminal and

And then eventually fails. (ad lib) "There was a problem installing printer packages., try again y/n" It seems to have just closed of its own accord just now too. ??  Abiword did the same thing a couple of days ago and gobbled about an hours worth of writing, but I thought it was a problem with the program.

What should I do? Does anyone have an idea what the problem might be?

Thanks,

Re: #! printer installation problems

Check out my sig for #! Waldorf to track Wheezy and then to Old Stable - follow those instructions and try the wireless printer again.

Um.. Help.

Okay, when you say comment out the Waldorf stanza in /etc/apt/sources.list.

Do you mean something like this [bold italic changed]? -

The redirector's messed up -- it does that sometimes.

Try again in a bit.

Also, for FlashPlayer you need to update it using:

sudo update-flashplugin-nonfree --install

Re: #! printer installation problems

Okay, so I've gotten into a spot of trouble. Thank you for all the time you all have put into my questions.

I was trying to run sudo apt-get update and was receiving no public key errors. I read online that a dist-upgrade solved the key error and tried running that. It went well until it got to file that was older than what was already on the computer and asked if I wanted to keep it, overwrite it, see the differences, etc. I selected the option for see differences and was taken to a terminal widow that only showed (end) as an option and would not allow me to continue. So I closed the terminal window and tied to restart from a new one. Long story short:

I am now locked out of dpkg, is there an echo or other command that will restart the dist-upgrade install from where it left off and is it even a good idea to run dist-upgrade? I have read bad things about it now.

Thanks!

That is just for configuration files and I too have encountered that annoying bug...
hmm

Please post the output of:

aptitude -s full-upgrade

I think you probably just need to delete the APT lock file, but let's see the command output first.

Re: #! printer installation problems

Looks fine.

Try to run the upgrade command again and accept the new configuration files when prompted.

sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Re: #! printer installation problems

Thanks. I got the readout below:

ems@Delphi:~$ sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
[sudo] password for ems: 
E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'sudo dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem. 
ems@Delphi:~$ sudo dpkg --configure -a
Setting up base-files (7.1wheezy8) ...

I went on and ran the sudo dpkg --configure -a, and accepted the new files.

Should I go ahead and try to run pvsage's wheezy tracking:
sudo apt-get purge tint2 tint2conf
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install tint2 --reinstall
sudo apt-get upgrade

I'm still getting the error when I try to install printers and my task bar has disappeared?

Thanks for your help.

Re: #! printer installation problems

Ah, sorry, it was the original reason for the post. When I go to system- printers- install printing support- It acts normally until, it kind of goes too fast, but I think it might have something to do with building dependencies and I get " there was a problem installing printer packages, try again y/n"

Try this:

I've never owned a printer so I'm not 100% on this...

Re: #! printer installation problems

I did get the wheezy tracking to work by updating debian archive keys with synaptic. Everything went though.

This is the readout when I try to load printer support:

The cb-meta-printer-support package is only available from the #! repositories.

Why didn't you run the command I suggested?

sudo aptitude install cups

EDIT: You can try the bl-welcome script from BunsenLabs instead:
https://github.com/BunsenLabs/bunsen-welcome

It installs the bunsen-meta-printer-support package instead.

I don't know where this package actually is -- if you wait a bit, one of the "staff" will probably shed some light on the matter (I'm just here for the troubleshooting).

Re: #! printer installation problems

It is a problem with the Crunchbang package that installs the pipe menu for printer support in your menu. You should be able to do

sudo apt-get install cups

to get the printer packages.
