Hello!

As for my printer:
Canon MG5422

Sadly, Canon printers are NOT supported well under Linux, but I DID find this, which may help you:

To remove the GPG public key error:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 3BDAAC08614C4B38
sudo apt-get update

AND

If you installed java using the aforementioned link http://forum.pcmech.com/threads/installing-java-in-linux-lite.231503/, you need to uninstall it using:

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get purge oracle-java7-installer
sudo apt-get purge oracle-java7-set-default
sudo apt-get update

Then try installing Java via Lite Software.
WOW!!! everything went smooth. I even installed Java via Lite Software like you said. Then I went back and installed  Dropbox, Music Player, Video Editing Software, VirtualBox & Webcam Software.
Thank you.
Now I just need to get my printer working.

I'm looking into this from a comment that was earlier in the topic.

And this looks like a good resource on your printer.  When they mention Synaptic Package Manager, you get to that in Linux Lite by going to Menu->System->Install/Remove Software.

Try this.  Open up a terminal (Menu->Accessories->Terminal).  Copy and paste in the following two lines, one at a time.

Code: [Select]
sudo rm /var/lib/apt/lists/* -vf
sudo apt-get update

Then try opening Lite Software again.

Okay I rebooted & tried again.
Still got an error

Deselect the software source that refers to the launchpad ppa for java.  Then try what was mentioned before with Lite Software.
It is deselected. Maybe I need to reboot?

Looks like your installs of java and Opera are causing this.  You can go to Software & Updates (Menu->All->Software & Updates) .  Choose the Other Software tab and uncheck the items referring to launchpad.net/java and the one referring to Opera.

OR

You could uninstall them by trying:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get purge opera
sudo apt-get purge java

Then re-try what was mentioned before.

Opera was removed but not Java

I was pleased a couple of weeks ago when my HP printer was immediately picked up by LL and was ready for use. Then this morning it suddenly wouldn't print. I found I had to go into Printers and Enable it, for some reason. Not sure why that happened, but I'm just mentioning the possibility.

To 5150Jim,

You're off to a bumpy start.  Let's try to smooth that out.

1) You can install the Java web applet via Lite Software Menu->System->Lite Software.

2) When in Lite Software, also consider installing Clementine (Music Player) and gtkpod (iDevices Manager) instead of iTunes.

3) What is the make and model of your printer?  Is your laptop the only computer that you cannot print with?  How did you try to connect to the printer?  Wirelessly, via a network connection, via a USB cable?

I'm not going to worry about my daughter's ipod right now because it says on the gtkpod site.

iOS devices up to and including iOS4
    CANNOT be written to unless a binary-only blob is used


As for my printer:
Canon MG5422
I have 1 of the 4 laptop that prints. That would be the WIN 8 & it's wireless. I even tried to install the drivers with the USB cable on the others but none will print with the cable or wireless.

I have even tried to install it on this laptop I'm typing on by going through the terminal to no avail.
OH wait... It does print under the WIN 7 partition, or at least it did. Because I can get anything to work in WIN 7 right now.
