Debian :: CUPS Failed To Print File In 7.8

Nov 10, 2015

I have installed cups(1.5.3) in my Beagleboard black based custom hardware running on Debian 7.8 using 'apt-get install' command. I am trying to print to HP deskjet 1112 usb printer from system line but nothing is getting printed and the output of 'lpstat -t' shows the error : "/usr/lib/cups/filter/hpcups failed "

The error_log output is :

I [10/Nov/2015:09:44:51 +0000] Saving job.cache...
I [10/Nov/2015:09:44:52 +0000] Listening to [v1.::1]:631 (IPv6)
I [10/Nov/2015:09:44:52 +0000] Listening to (IPv4)
I [10/Nov/2015:09:44:52 +0000] Listening to /var/run/cups/cups.sock (Domain)


Please find the response from CUPS administrators below:

As far as I see this has nothing to do with CUPS.As far as I see the first error message comes from Ghostscript: "Unable to open the initial device, quitting" (this is in Ghostscript's file).Therefore Ghostscript does not produce any output which lets then the filter from HP's HPLIP driver software error out with "cupsRasterOpen failed" and finally the HP backend errors out with "ERROR: null print job".Neither Ghostscript nor HP's HPLIP driver software belong to CUPS so that the issue does not belong to CUPS (according to my analysis).

I guess that somehow the "Ghostscript command line" is not correct or does not work as it should.Usually this is alos no bug in Ghostscript but "some where else" where the Ghostscript command line with all its parameters is created.

Server :: Where Is The Spool File Stored When A File Is Sent To Print In Cups

Oct 28, 2010

I'm trying to setup a print server in Fedora 13. I've made it using CUPS and when I send something to print from a Windows PC it goes ok. My main concern is to know where is the spool file stored when a file is sent to print. I've seen in many forums that it is stored in /var/spools/cups. What I only see here is a file name c000XXX with some information about the printing job. I'm using hold print for this printer and before printing out anything I can't find the spool. I've tried cups-pdf and it stores a pdf file in a route but this is not enough for me. I need to know where the spool data is stored in order to know from who is the job being send.

Debian Hardware :: Unable To Print With CUPS

General :: Cups Spooler Quits Printing Large Print File?

Mar 22, 2010

I have installed centos 5 and can print small to medium lpr files using cups fine (1 to 20 pages), but when i tried to print a file of 95 pages the printer just stops, I have to power off the printer and turn it back on and it will start printing again. It looks like some data is lost in this process. It may print 20 pages and stop. When restarted it may print 20 or 40 or complete the report.I can print to the devicectly and it works fine. It is only when the large print jobs are run through the spooler.I have tried on different printers and the same results, that's what makes me think it is a spooler problem.

Debian :: Cups Not Starting With The Server / Getting Error Unable To Read Configuration File '/etc/cups/cupsd.conf' - Exiting?

Feb 24, 2011

cups does not start with the server. When I try to start from the terminal I get the error message

cupsd: Unable to read configuration file '/etc/cups/cupsd.conf' - exiting!
cupsd: Child exited with status 1!

The log files show nothing. cupsd.conf exists. It is user - root and group - root with permissions set at 0644.

My interpretation of this is that the program is not launching from either boot or terminal for a fundamental reason. I do not quite see what that reason is .

Debian Configuration :: CUPS Raw Print Queues Not Working?

Apr 16, 2011

I am trying to set up a print server here on a Squeeze system using the stock debian CUPS package. It seems that since Apple has bought this package, it has caused me nothing but grief. I have set up two different USB printers with raw print queues, and every time I send a print job to either of them, the job disappears into thin air, with no error output. In fact, when I look at the queue, it says the job was completed successfully. I look at the logs, and there is no output indicating any issues. Just for kicks, I reconfigured one of the printers to use a linux driver, and it printed just fine (a little slow, but fine). I set it back to raw, and the jobs disappear again into oblivion.

I have done this many times in the past, and never had any issues -- I even had this very same printer set up that way about a year ago, and it worked great. The only noteworthy thing that seems to have changed is that there are no longer any files called "mime.types" and "mime.convs". It seems they have been replaced by "raw.types" and "raw.convs". The contents of these two files are as follows:

raw.types: application/octet-stream

Debian Hardware :: CUPS Says Print Job Complete But Never Prints

Jan 29, 2016

Canon PIXMA MX492, installed drivers from Canon page a few weeks ago, printed test page just fine, printed a few pages after that.

This week I reinstalled Jessie, but with net install instead of live USB. Installed drivers from Canon, it all looks the same.

Localhost: 631 says print job complete, but nothing ever prints. Printer doesn't respond at all. Where print spool is going. I can't figure out what I missed. The install was so simple last time and it should have been the same.

The net install seemed to fix drawing tablet drivers, maybe broke printing somehow? Updated kernel for graphics firmware, but same version as a few days ago.

Software :: CUPS - Print Jobs Shows Completed, But Page Doesn't Print?

Dec 6, 2008

I initially had a problem accessing the CUPS interface (see my other post) and got that resolved by adding the user "cupsys". Now, everything "looks" ok, and when I print a test page, it shows it as completed (in CUPS). However, the page never prints.
The printer is a Canon MP600 (using the canonmp600en.ppd file to configure it). Here's the output of my conf file.

Slackware :: CUPS Print Jobs Print 1st Page OK, But All Others Are Overwritten?

Feb 26, 2011

Not sure when CUPS started acting up. I have the latest 13.1 current software installed.The first page to print is always OK, but all succeeding pages are overwritten. The second page shows the first page on top of it, and the third shows the preceding pages on top of it - and so on. Has anyone else seen this problem?I guess the printer buffer is not getting flushed correctly. If my configurations were trashed in some way, I don't know where to look for a fix.

Debian :: Can't Start CUPS Server With /etc/init.d/cups Restart "file Not Found"

Jan 21, 2010

installed lenny and am trying to install brother dcp7010 again:

1) i can't start CUPS server with /etc/init.d/cups restart "file not found", there is a cups@ link in /etc/init.d.

2) when i install dcp7010 cupswrapper

dpkg -i
it ends with
" lpinfo: Verbindung zum Server nicht m�glich: Verbindungsaufbau abgelehnt
lpadmin: Verbindung zum Server nicht m�glich: Verbindungsaufbau abgelehnt"
(connection to server not possible, refused)

3)[URL] doesn't work.

4)foomatic-gui can't find the installed dcp7010 lpr-driver

brdcp7010lpr-2.0.1-1.i386.deb, (a couple of days ago it did)

This is frustrating because it worked in etch and worked for awhile in lenny. The dcp7010-scanner does work.

I'm trying to print a PDF from Windows through CUPS. I'm guessing it is supposed to appear somewhere on my Ubuntu machine, but I cannot find any files. When I go on the CUPS server and look at "completed jobs", it shows every print that I did, but I have no idea where the file is located.It is not in my Home directory.

Ubuntu :: CUPS Bug: A4 Doesn't Print Correctly?

Jan 26, 2010

my printer has a known CUPS bug; A4 is printed as letter size; i.e. printing only appears on the bottom half of the page. I downloaded a ppd file at [URL] but it improved nothing. Also installed the bug's patch (sorry I don't have the bug's number) and followed the instructions; zero results. Upgraded Ubuntu 9.04's CUPS-related repositories to 9.10 but no improvement. Every test page still comes out with just the top third sitting at the bottom.

Ubuntu :: Cups: Large Files Do Not Print?

Nov 29, 2010

i have a problem with cups on a lucid/64 machine.

"Unable to write print data: Broken pipe"

The pdf-file to print has a size of 4,7MB. After sending the file to the printer the size of the file is more than 18 MB.

We use a Xerox WorkCentre 7232 which is via


connected to cups. The same configuration had been working fine for several years with hardy.

Cups refuses to print large files. When splitting up the print-file all works fine.

Red Hat / Fedora :: CUPS Print Queue Is Disabling?

Apr 16, 2011

I am running CentOS 5.4 with CUPS v1.3.7 and have a Brother printer (MFC-5895CW) that connects wirelessly to a SonicWall device. The SonicWall is hardwired to my PC. I have found that periodically, the printer queue will become disabled and the only way to re-enable it is to issue a cupsenable command.

I believe that queue only gets disabled if the wireless connection drops in the middle of a print job. I've tried dropping the wireless connection and then bringing it back up when no print jobs are active or pending and the queue is fine for the next print job that is sent when the connection is up.

I did a little research and found that my version of CUPS contains support for an ErrorPolicy setting in the printer.conf file that may prevent the print queue from being disabled. I'm hoping that if I change the default value from "stop-printer" to "retry-job" that this will prevent CUPS from disabling the print queue and requirring a cupsenable command to re-enable the queue.

I don't want to play around with scheduling cron jobs to enable the queue.

General :: Disable CUPS Print Banner?

Feb 16, 2010

I have cups 1.4.1 on ubuntu that act as print server that receive print request from Oracle Applications 11i on hp-ux and sends them to windows clients.

Clients printers are from different vendors like Samsung, HP and Kyocera.

Some printers print request with Cover Page with content of "job-id job-name job-originating-user-name job-originating-host-name job-billing" like Samsung ML-2250 or HP Laserjet 1100

but in Kyocera print without banner.

General :: Unable To Print Using CUPS In Fedora 12?

Im trying to set up a print server using Fedora 12 and CUPS.

It recognized the printer, and i can print from the linux box. When i try to install it on my Win 7 64-bit box i can install the printer itself by giving it the IP address and port number of the linux box but i cant sent anything to it to print. I apologize im a little rough on the details, im not at home right now. I believe the printer i have is a HP PSC 1500. I opened the cups port on the linux firewall, and i shared the printer through the cups admin browser page.

Server :: Changing CUPS Print Orientation?

Mar 2, 2010

In Windows printing I can take an 11 X 17 report, and tell the print manager to rotate and size. The job then prints (Xerox N40) aligned correctly.

Currently, even after telling the N40 it has ledger paper and switching it's orientation, my 11 X 17 reports print "down" the page rather than across.

Is it possible to tell CUPS to rotate the print job?

Server :: CUPS Doesn't Let Me Print From Network

Oct 3, 2009

I have an ubuntu server (9.04) that needs to share a printer (a Brother 2070N on USB). To configure cups, I had to modify cups.conf quite a bit to let me access the printer management pages, but I did get it working. I can print using the lpr command, as well as print test pages using the management interface's "Print Test Page" button from any computer on my network. However, I cannot actually set up Ubuntu, Fedora, Vista, or OSX to see the network printer, and it's driving me insane.Brother from any computer on the network I can see the specific printer management page, but no computer can actually print to the printer (other than using the "print test page" button)

Software :: Cups Dropping Print Jobs

Apr 30, 2011

I have a problem with cups dropping print jobs. The machine fedora 13 installation using cups 1.4.4-10

The dropped jobs happen only rarely happen and therefore is difficult to debug the problem since it doesn't happen 99% of the time. This morning (while in the shower) I wondered if the lost jobs are lost because they are timing out, perhaps because of slow input from a user. I can test this more later in the week..

The print jobs are initiated from within a COBOL program. COBOL opens the print file as output and at this stage a job appears in the print queue with a status in the print queue of "held".

The user types in various bits of information and when complete the program executes the final write to the output print file. The job is somehow released and then is physically printed by CUPS. I suspect that if the user is slow the "held" job times out and then the job is lost.

There are a number of timeout directives in cups.conf but I am unsure which might be appropriate in this case. Or perhaps there is some other timeout thing happening.
