Basic Printing

First, we need to open the printer setup by: 1) Click on “Applications” in the upper-right, 2) begin typing “printers” and 3) select the “Printers” app (see below).

Next, click on the “Add” button at the top of the window that appears.

Now you will see the printer setup wizard (see below). Click first on “AppSocket/HP JetDirect” (see “1” below), then enter the name of your printer in the “Host:” box on the right. (The hostname of the printer will be provided along with these instruction) Don’t worry about capitalization, it is not case-sensitive. Click on the “Forward” button at the bottom when this is complete.

After a few moments of searching for a printer driver, your computer will show you the “Choose a driver” screen (see below). Scroll down in the list and select the make of your printer. For example, if you have a Ricoh Aficio SP-3300, select “Ricoh” by clicking on it, then click the “Forward” button at the bottom to go to the next step.

In the window that appears, select the model of the printer you are using. For example, for the Ricoh Aficio SP-3300, click on “SP 3300” on the left side to make sure that it is selected, then click the “Forward” button at the bottom.

In the next screen, do not change anything, just click the “Forward” button at the bottom.

_images/image_53.png

The next screen will ask you to “Describe Printer”. You can leave this the way it is if you want, but I prefer to put in a short name for the printer so I can remember which one this netbook is printing to, just in case the netbook finds its way to a different classroom. To do this, enter the same printer name you used in the steps above under “Printer Name” and click the “Forward” button.

_images/image_63.png

Finally, the system will ask you if you want to print a test page. We prefer not to waste the paper, so we recommend clicking on “No”.

That’s it! You should now be able to print on your classroom printer. Close the window and continue enjoying the use of your netbook.

Laptop Troubleshooting for Students

Problem: Can’t access a web site (or Secure Browser)

  • Click on the wifi icon at the top-right of your screen (it looks like this image_0) and make sure you are connected to “LVUSD-devices”. If you are on “LVUSD-Guest”, choose “LVUSD-devices” and try again. If you don’t see “LVUSD-devices”, try rebooting.
  • If Chrome still says “No internet connection” or the icon looks like this image_1, try clicking the wifi icon and turn “Wireless” off and back on again.
  • If neither works, try rebooting.

Problem: Touchpad is not moving or jumpy

  • Press Fn + F7 and try moving the cursor. If it doesn’t move, press Fn + F7 once more and try again. If it still doesn’t move, try rebooting.
  • If your touchpad is really dirty, clean it! Ask your teacher for a wipe or a damp (not wet) cloth.

Problem: A web site is not behaving as I think it should

  • If Chrome says “No internet connection”, see Problem: Can’t access a web site (or Secure Browser) above.
  • Make sure that Chrome browser is up-to-date. Look for the software update icon at the top-right of your screen image_2. If you see it, click on it and choose “Update Chrome”.
  • If you have a bunch of tabs open, close the ones you are not using.
  • Try closing Chrome and re-opening it.
  • Try Firefox instead by selecting it from “Applications->Internet”.

Problem: Laptop is not charging

  • Make sure the connector is pushed all the way into the port.
  • If it still won’t charge, take the laptop and power adapter to the library to have it checked.

Problem: Laptop appears to be stuck

  • If you try following the Touchpad instructions above and they do not work, hold down the power button until the laptop turns off, then turn it back on again.

Still having problems? Try resetting your laptop

  1. Shut the laptop down.
  2. Be ready to press the Esc key (don’t press it yet) and press the power button
  3. When you see the countdown timer at the top-left (will count 3… 2… 1…) press the Esc key before it runs out.
  4. Use the arrow keys on the keyboard to select “Restore factory settings” and press Enter
  5. When the next menu appears, press 1 on the keyboard and then press Enter.
  6. Your computer will reset itself and continue to boot. If you are prompted for a password, the password is “password” (without the quotes).

If resetting doesn’t work, take your laptop to the library to get a loaner. The tech team will fix it and get it back to you as quickly as possible. If you have files you are worried about losing, upload them to your Google Drive!


Ubermix Lite Audio Fix

On certain computer hardware, the Ubermix 2 Lite image may mute the system’s sound, and normal settings changes do not correct the issue. The following instructions provide steps to correct this audio issue. These steps can be completed by students, staff, and teachers.

Step 1: Terminal

Open a Terminal window with Ctrl + Alt + T (Or you can search for it in the *”Activities”** menu bar)*.

Step 2: Alsamixer

Type alsamixer into the terminal window, and hit the Enter/Return key. This will open up the onboard audio mixer in a colored graphical interface. *NOTE: The mouse will NOT work within the Terminal window.*

_images/image_06.png

Step 3: Unmuting

Using the arrow keys, move the Terminal cursor to the right until it highlights the first MM under the volume levels, and hit the M key to unmute the audio for that device. Then simply follow the same procedure for any MM’s you may see. At the very end, where it asks whether Auto-Mute should be enabled, use the up and down arrow keys to change the option to Disabled.

Step 4: Save and Exit

Once all the audio levels are unmuted (they should show a number instead of MM now) hit the ESC key, and the settings should be saved. Now you can type exit and the Terminal window will close.

_images/image_15.png

Step 5: Confirm

Check if audio works by navigating to an application or website that you know will require audio, and see if it works. If it does, then you have successfully fixed the audio issue! If not, please check the audio settings located in the upper-right corner of your screen, and make sure the Mute checkbox is not checked.
