I am getting a triangle with exclaimation in it WHY

Asked by Lynne Stevens on 2013-01-05

If the system can put the weird notification up there why is the HPLIP and Firestarter not there ?

There must be something blocking HPLIP and Firestarter from being up there as it has My Weather, E-mail, Battery, WiFi , volume control, Time, and the Ubuntu Icon for shutting down and other stuff . . Some days there is a tiny spot where if you run the mouse over it the HPLIP is sort of there and it gives you a drop down menu . . Wonder if it is only after I print something will check . . No that is not it either
I keep getting "The information is out dated maybe caused by network problems or a repository not there any more . . Please up date manually " and a gob more stuff . . . If I can get here and put the message here there is no network problems means you people have removed a repositiory or something I would guess right ?

Thanks

SAYS The information is out dated maybe caused by network problems or a repository not there any more . . Please up date manually (and a gob more) will not let me copy and paste

Run:

sudo apt-get update

What is output?

Thanks

You are the same guy with this question : https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/ubuntu-meta/+question/218383

correct ?

So I assume that something is going on with firestarter..

Firewalls in Ubuntu are not easy . Iptables , apparmor .. etc , all these security tools needs lot of reading and lot of configuration .

Ubuntu have set up for you (and me) from the beginning , so we have not to struggle various settings that can hurt the system.

I'm not able to manage these tools without to screw up my connection , are you ? If yes , then forget my answer.

Try to reset any settings you've done with these firewall tools and/or uninstall firestarter completely..

Thanks

Well there is a sort of bigger empty spot between the notifications spot and the blue e-mail spot and if you run the mouse over it and click it shows a drop down munu of the HPLIP status service But why the HPlLIP icon is not there is weird

Lynne Stevens (jackie40d) said : #7

Actually Firestarter is so easy to setup that is is not funny just answer questions and click forward and it is installed and running
I has worked for me since way back in 8.04 . . I am now running 12.10 and the error says FAILED to open System Log . . And no event Information is avalaible with a big ORANGE OK button ! !

N1ck 7h0m4d4k15 (nicktux) said : #8

Well , if you say so (that is funny and easy , I believe you).
So maybe this is a Firestarter's bug in 12.10 ? Check it out, search for bugs and if no relevant appears , you can try to report a bug by yourself.

Also you have proposed-updates enabled. I assume (you said you use Ubuntu since 8.04) you know what proposed-updates are..
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuUpdates

I guess you will face similar (or even worse) problems in near future with proposed-updates enabled.

Thanks

Can you help with this problem?
