Canfigure is an IT Service Management solution with incredible flexibility.

Reduce risk to your enterprise with robust governance of your assets.

Canfigure is an IT Service Management solution with incredible flexibility. Canfigure is designed for scalability. We believe in keeping it simple with easily self-deployable, cost effective standalone tools allowing you to scale up through a library of well designed modules, growing your number of assets and expanding you user base at a pace that suits you. With out of the box support for all IT assets, Canfigure can be customized to hold information for any type of asset including IoT, facilities, transportation and more. The database schema can be extended via the admin functions with no technical knowledge required. Asset information can include financial data and be used to track important dates such as warranty expiry, and linked directly to supporting contract documents. The heart of Canfigure is a Configuration Management Database (CMDB) that underpins all other functions. The CMDB holds your data in the form of Configuration Items (CIs) and the relationships between them.

  • Very complex to get working. Seems strange to install the printer driver separately to the plugin, and the GUI. Stopped working after update to Ubuntu 19.10. The new version for Ubuntu 19.10 says to install Gobject, but there is no version to install. The installed version of HPlip cannot find the printer, when it is immediately found by IP address without HPlip. After days of trying, and repeated reinstalling, the scanner on HP fdn281 says there are ports that should be open. The printer was fine till the upgrade. The new version does not install. IN ubuntu 19.04, this printer installed in 30 seconds.

  • Useless stuff. This could not detect my network HP Laserjet 1018 connected to the ASUS RT N-16. Waste of time.

  • Works with Ubuntu MATE 19.04. Does not work with Ubuntu MATE 19.10. Installed hplip-3.19.10. Restarted system. Turned printer off, then on. Ran hp-setup. It failed. The /var/logs/cups/error_log shown multiple Unknown directive errors showing it was not tested/packaged properly. Illegal option keyword string in the /etc/cups/ppd/HP-OfficeJet-Pro-7740-series.ppd file. FindDeviceById failed: org.freedesktop.ColorManager.NotFound:device id \'cups-HP-OfficeJet-Pro-7740-series\' does not exist. etc... This must not have been tested on a system other than the development machine. Or no one bothered to read the error_log. Ran hp-doctor. It Failed! Looking at config.log I see such errors as: g++: error: unrecognized command line option '-V' g++: fatal error: no input files g++: error: unrecognized command line option '-qversion'; did you mean '--version'? conftest.c:11:10: fatal error: ac_nonexistent.h: No such file or directory conftest.c:27:9: error: unknown type name 'not' conftest.c:27:15: error: expected '=', ',', ';', 'asm' or '__attribute__' before 'universal' conftest.c:27:15: error: unknown type name 'universal' conftest.c:33:12: error: expected '=', ',', ';', 'asm' or '__attribute__' before 'endian' etc... etc... etc... Obviously this code was never tested and the logs were never examined.

  • When the program works right it is an excellent program. Lately when I have tried to load the program It won't download the plugin. I am using Ubuntu 19.04. I hope this can be fixed.

  • Crap! Scanjetz Pro 2500 f1: Why is there no .deb for current Ubuntu LTS / Mint Upstream or at least at launchpad ? Only a weird "installer"
