  13. Ok If you have set any external repository then try to install gtk.It’s Basically problem of GTK AFAIK. So Execute this command yum -y install gtk*.If you are getting errors still after that than let me know. I Will try to sort it out.

  17. Dear members, I have facing some problem to configure my HP 1020 Laser printer in Fedora 11, i have followed the following steps
    Step 1:- Execute Following Command
    wget -O foo2zjs.tar.gz
    This command will download Driver
    Step 2 :- Unpack the downloaded Drivers.Execute Following Commands
    tar zxvf foo2zjs.tar.gz
    cd foo2zjs
    Step 3:- Now Compile Drivers & Install Drivers (GCC Packages need here
    [r…]# make
    [r…]# make install
    [r…]# make install-hotplug (this command will
    detect your USB printer)

    after finished the above three steps I Execute system-config-printer
    but get the message

    GVFS-RemoteVolumeMonitor-WARNING **: cannot connect to the session bus: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply: Did not receive a reply.Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply,the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeoutexpired, or the network connection was broken.

    there i find the driver for my HP Printer and Installed it.But when i starts to print my
    documents , the printer is not gives nothing.

    I checked the Document print status where i found that the JOB is completed!!!But i am not getting the printed stuffs!

    So any solution for the above.
