gtk-recordmydesktop problem in Debian #solve

If you are using recordmydesktop and advance tab is not working then this is probably due to this :


su root ;                                                         // login as root
cd /usr/local/bin ;                                         // go to the /usr/local/bin directory
gedit  jack_lsp ;                                                 // created the file jack_lsp 
                                                                   //Write following in the file and save it: 
chmod 755  /usr/local/bin/jack_lsp ;                 // Made it executable ( rwx for owner , rx for group and others )

Master Reset in the canon i1980 ( Ink absorber Full )

Recently i brought a new Canon i1980 photo printer and when I changed the cartridge it shown me the error :

Contact the nearest Service center .The ink Absorbers are full [4 Orange + 1 Green Light Blinks]

then their are 3 things you can do :

1.Take your printer to the canon service center.


2.Do the master reset of the Printer motherboard.Press the Orange button for more then 120 second and reset it permanently. [Ink may start flowing out]


3.Switch off the printer , press the on/off switch on printer and while holding the button power on the printer , and press orange button 2 times while holding the on/off button.Now leave the on-off button and print.This is not a permanent remedy.[Ink may start flowing out]
