to make my printer (hp4000) work on gutsy i had to boot an old ubuntu live cd 6.10 and test it there (add new printer )

with the folowing config Manufacturer Hp, Model 4000, Driver hpijs , Connection Part Port #1 (Epson)
the last line seems to be very important

Then i deleted my /etc/cups from gutsy and copied all the /etc/cups directory from 6.10

I will see later what is the difference between the two configs

Thursday, December 13, 2007 Welcome Claws Mail, Goodbye Thunderbird [updated]

[I kinda start to hate the thunderbird for it's slowness , also i use no extension so for me the jump is easy if i pump my emaisl to the claws mail , I used it before and it rocked , it was very very faast
and did i mention that you get rid of 2G limitation for the inbox folder from the thunderbird ? you can put emails in MailDir format with each mail in it's own folder - this is the best way no more inbox corruption ]

What made me switch was the responsiveness of Claws, and the reliability (from what I can tell with my little experience). And both of those points have actually been my major peeves with Thunderbird (which is sort of funny, because I remember similar motivations when migrating from an out-dated outlook to thunderbird in the first place a few years ago) Welcome Claws Mail, Goodbye Thunderbird [updated]

Finally: an easy guide to Compiz on Xubuntu 7.10!

Time to enable compiz on my hardy :P With Xubuntu 7.10, installing Compiz no longer pulls along half of Gnome. However, there still was a lack of guides on the internet describing how to install Compiz on Xubuntu, so I've written one.After all, why shouldn't Xubuntu users be allowed to enjoy the bling? Have fun :)
