Re: Google Play music manager on Linux...and Pi?

I just found this article that says the Google Play Music Manager software is now available for Linux. Does this mean it will work on the Pi too, if I give one of my Pi's a generic Linux (say Raspbian Wheezy) build? Or will something get in the way? Here's the article: http://lifehacker.com/5828305...

Re: HP LaserJet p1102 printer not recognized

If you find on the HPlip page that the printer is supported, you must check whether a proprietary plugin is required. The HPlip framewok installs the plugin automatically.
