I have a Brother HL-L2360DL that I'd thought I'd finally managed to install.
I had to go to the Brother website to get a script to run.
The instructions for the script had the wrong name for it.
None of the default options for Brother printers came close.
The CUPS adminstration "web" pages say the right things:
Idle, accepting jobs, two completed jobs.
Nothing actually prints. Not even a test page.
The printer never comes out of deep sleep.
How do I fix this?
It worked with Centos 7, but I do not know what I did.
In my experience, there is no such thing as a small problem when it comes to
installing a printer on Linux:
Either it just works or it requires a mighty effort.
I am getting mighty tired of mighty efforts.
BTW how do I change the default from single- to double-sided?

I've got an odd problem that I was hoping for some help on.
The laptop was previously working fine, I am running F30, updated regularly.
I've got an Acer laptop that has been shutting down suddenly. (I
suspect a bad battery, working on that.)
After a sudden shutdown last night, I now get a kernel panic on boot
right after "Starting Switch Root..."
I was able to boot from a USB stick, and was able to read the journal,
but I didn't see anything obvious to help.
I was able to get all of my data off of the (encrypted) disks, so
that's not a problem, but I don't want to just give up, and wash and
reload too quickly.
It has been a couple of years (which means 4 or 5 Fedora releases ago)
since I did this, but I used to be able to play Xonotic using my Xbox 360
Wireless controller. Now I cannot get the controller to work properly in
F32 (it works in Windows 10 so I know the hardware is OK).
This most likely has something to do with the move from xboxdrv (which is
no longer available in Fedora) to xpad kernel driver, and/or the move from
the old js driver to evdev. The xpad driver comes with the current kernel,
but what I cannot figure out is how to calibrate the controller. If I run
Xontic with the controller connected, the game world just spins
counterclockwise. This is a symptom of the controller needing to be
calibrated, but I don't know how to do it. I tried using "jscal", but if I
run "jscal -c" to calibrate it, it appears to work but doesn't. I can
immediately run "jscal -t" and it will say it is not calibrated, and
running "jstest" also shows it is not calibrated (several of the axes are
not centered, i.e. show nonzero values in jstest).
I attempted to download and compile xboxdrv, but it does not work due to
Python 2 vs. 3 incompatibilities, and it doesn't look like any work has
been done on xboxdrv in quite some time. If I try to make it, I get this:
root@snowcrash xboxdrv-linux-0.8.8]# make
scons: Reading SConscript files ...
File "/local/src/xboxdrv-linux-0.8.8/SConstruct", line 34
SyntaxError: Missing parentheses in call to 'print'. Did you mean
make: *** [Makefile:24: xboxdrv] Error 2
Certainly looks like Python version incompatibility.
Can anybody point me to information on how to use an Xbox 360 controller on
F32, or how to calibrate it when using the xpad driver? I have done a lot
of Googling, but most of the articles I found mention things like "apt-get
install xboxdrv", showing they were written for Ubuntu rather than Fedora
and are wanting to use the xboxdrv driver.
I am having an odd problem with my ethernet port. I assume this came
with a dnf update but that was some weeks ago so I can't help figure
out what update might have done it. When first discovered I think I
found that booting from an older kernel did not fix it. I assume that
the physical interface is not the problem since a physical "bounce"
always fixes it and it shows no other problems. To explain that...
The trouble is that the ethernet port will not come out of the "no-
carrier" state no matter how much I mess with the various commands that
are supposed to effect it.
The simple fix is to physically unplug and replug the cable. When it is
not working (each reboot) there are not lights on. The physical
"bounce" lights up the LEDs and it comes right up.
So, I am asking for something to add to rc.local that does the same
I use a wifi adapter for my main/Internet connection. This port is just
used for a wired link to my Raspberry Pi.
The command that seems like it *should* work:
sudo mii-tool --reset enp5s0
But that does not fix it.
The below is taken while it is working...

I have got a second hard disk on my desktop computer, which I would
like to format. My machine runs Fedora 33, and I would like to ask you
what format to adopt: the new Btrfs is advisable?
Moreover, could you please direct me to some documentation on how to
format the hard disk? Using GParted?
Thanks in advance,
I created a Fedora FAS account a long while back. I cannot find the
account name I used and there seems to be no way to find it. The password
reset assumes you know what account name you used.
Who do I talk to to get this fixed?
Q: Why do programmers confuse Halloween and Christmas?
A: Because OCT 31 == DEC 25.
I am curious what the similarities are between Fedora 33 and the newly
released Mageia 8, and what the differences are.
Today's release announcment of Mageia 8, alleges that it ships with three
repositories, one of which is disabled. One of their repos contains
non-free stuff, and can be disabled. The disabled one contains the
controversial codecs which may be illegal in your country.
I recall someone suggesting that Mageia can ship their iso that way because
tjey are in France.
I do believe that the developmemt team at Mageia is only about 30
From my perspective, they do not use third-party repos. Right ?
I assume Mageia's core repo is not as up-to-date as Fedoras.
I assume Mageia 8 is way behind Fedora 34 Beta.
It would seem to me, that if a user prefers LXDE, or LXQt, or Mate or Xfce
or a window-manager, that it would not matter what distro you choose.
I do not think Mageia has Budgie DE.
Mageia only offers one iso, where as Fedora has custom isos. Right ?
Meaning, in order to get Mageia 8 LXQt, you must first install Mageia 8.
I think a newbie could learn on Mageia 8 and then later on learn to prefer
Fedora. Right ?
I assume they do not use anaconda as their instllaler, but have something
that the old Mandriva had.
Feel free to enlightmemt me.
