Debian Configuration :: Print Jobs Disappear From Queue?

Jun 16, 2010

I have no idea what's going on. I've had this machine running for over a year, and it's been great. A month or so ago, I realized that jobs weren't going to the printer. When i VNC'd in, I noticed that print jobs would show up in the queue as "Processing" briefly, then disappear.

lsusb:
Bus 005 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub

[Code]....

I've even reinstalled the OS (not just for this reason) to no avail. Printer is dete cted without issue, I just can't use it.

Ubuntu :: Print Jobs Stuck In Queue?

Mar 28, 2010

I have 2 printers plugged into a Windows XP PC (an Epson Stylus Photo RX580, and an HP Laserjet 1020) with full sharing on and everything, and is shared with other Windows PCs via the network I have set up. It has worked perfect. But today I added a PC running Ubuntu 9.10 and and can't figure out for the life of me what I am doing wrong. I installed both of the printers via the GUI in Administration, and both of them are detected and Ubuntu says they're working. But when I put something in the queue to print it stays there with the status "pending".

OpenSUSE Hardware :: 11.3 - Print Jobs Just Sits In Queue

Jul 26, 2010

I'm running openSUSe 11.3 on a laptop and the printer is connected to my desktop which is running Windows XP. I have the printer and several folders and drives shared. I can see the folders and drivers on my laptop but I cannot get the printer to actually print. It is an HP printer but I am not using HPLIP. I can send a print job to the queue and the printer resets itself like it's going to print but nothing else happens and the print job just sits in the queue until I hit cancel and restart then printer.

Applications :: Firefox 3+ Doesn't Queue Lpr Print Jobs Until After Quit On RHEL5/10.04?

Jun 8, 2010

We have a lpr server for printing (not CUPS for compatibility with complicated domain/systems). We configured our linux systems -- RHEL4, RHEL5, and Ubuntu 10.04 -- so that lpr is one of the gtk print possiblities by adding 'gtk-print-backends = "lpr,pdf,file"' to gtkrc. This works great for several gtk-enabled applications like Acrobat Reader (acroread).

However, Firefox 3+ (tested 3.6.3 & 3.0.19) doesn't actually queue any lpr jobs until after quitting the application.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Parallel Port Printer Configuration On 11.2 64 - "There Is No Print Queue"

Dec 13, 2009

I installed SuSE 11.2 64-bit on a new computer without any printer attached. When I read the manual for the mainboard, I discovered to my delight that it actually has a parallel port, it's just not connected. I moved the cable from an old desktop and put it into my new desktop. After enabling the port in the BIOS setup, the Hardware Information dialog in yast correctly shows that I have a HP LaserJet 1100 (/dev/lp2).

How do I configure the printer? "Printer" in yast tells me "There is no print queue". When I click "Add" yast tries to detect a printer and gives up with the message "No connection selected". I can't add a selection, however. "More connections" gives me the exact same error message. The "Connection Wizard" allows me to select "Parallel Port", but then complains about missing connections again. The cups demon is running. I don't have /dev/lp2, is that the problem?

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.

Code:
# Show troubleshooting information in error_log.

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.

Software :: Firefox, Okular Don't Put Print Job On The Print Queue (silently)?

Feb 16, 2011

I'm running Kubuntu 10.10 with a Laserjet 5M printer. When I attempt to print a job from Firefox or from Okular, the job never gets onto the print queue. However, I can print test pages on the printer and also print from OpenOffice, so this seems to be app-dependent. I know the jobs aren't being queued because the job number doesn't increase (as shown by the jobs for the test pages). Both Firefox and Ocular give every indication that the print job has been processed correctly.

General :: Crontab Show Live Timing/queue Of Upcoming Jobs?

Nov 18, 2010

is there a command or utility out there anywhere which can output a countdown of upcoming jobs from crontab? So you can display the queue of tasks in the order that they'll next run.

Anything like this out there?

EDIT: I realise there's crontab -l but that just echoes out the contents of the crontab file. I'd like somehow to get a countdown.

Debian Configuration :: Cron Jobs Not Running On XEN DomU

I've set up a cron job that simply echoes a date string to a file as a tester but it's not running. I've tried it under the root crontab, in /etc/crontab and set up in /etc/cron.daily. Is there something I'm missing?

Debian Configuration :: Suspend Mode And Cron Jobs?

Jul 7, 2010

Just curious if this is possible. What I want to do is setup a rsync job to backup my laptop to my personal file server(same LAN), but I want it do do this at 3AM while I'm sleeping. However I always close my laptop lid when I'm done using it which puts the laptop into suspend mode since that's how I configured my power options in gnome. Since I don't want to leave my laptop powered up all the time, I was wondering if it is possible to have a cron job scheduled that will wake the laptop up(out of suspend mode) and run my script/backup job, all without opening the lid of the laptop, and then put it back into suspend mode when it's done. Is this possible, and is it as easy as scheduling a cron job or is there some other scripting/configuration/trickery that I need to do to accomplish this?

Also, my laptop's BIOS has the option to power on at a scheduled time if needed, but I'm not sure if that would work with it being suspended(hibernation is not an option since my entire HD is encrypted with LUKS and I would have to be present to enter the password to boot the system.).

Ubuntu :: Printing - Print Job Shows The Printer Status As "idle" And The Print Queue Is Empty

Jul 15, 2011

Our one remaining problem seems to be printing. She has an HP OfficeJet 6500 USB printer. We have the computer conntected. Strangely, when I boot from the CD the printer shows up as installed even though I did nothing to install it. After having submitted a print job it shows the printer status as "idle" and the print queue is empty. I tried deleting that printer and re-installing. The installation went as one would expect. However the results are the same. I'm beginning to think that somehow the problem is related to the fact that we are operating from the live CD. getting this thing to print from the live CD.

Ubuntu :: Can't Delete Job From Queue - Can't Print XP

Aug 23, 2010

The Gnome Print Manager found the printer with no problems. The correct driver was available - so I installed it. The printer shows up when called by a print job I want to send. The queue pretends to process it. The queue states "completed." Then Nothing comes out of the printer. XP shows the print job as pending. Still nothing comes out of the printer. And I can't delete the job from the Ubuntu queue (because that lying SOB tells me the job is completed). I can't print from XP to that printer until I delete or cancel the Ubuntu job (from the XP queue) - or clear the XP print queue (by deleting spool files). Permissions on that printer are not an issue. Printing from Ubuntu to that printer worked OK on earlier versions of Ubuntu.

Fedora :: Sleep But Still Listen For Print Jobs?

So I have Fedora 14 installed on a laptop directly connected to my printer. I really never use the laptop except to send print jobs to it wirelessly. I was wondering if there was a way to make it suspend or sleep, or even idle everything down so it uses less power, but still listen for print jobs?

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.

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.

Ubuntu Networking :: Can't Send Print Jobs To Network Printer

Jul 18, 2011

I have a Brother MFC-295CN network printer. Been having a heck of a time trying to get this thing working since I installed Ubuntu 11.04 yesterday. I've been away from Linux for some time and am new at using it. Downloaded and installed using the Software Center:

mfc295cnlpr-1.1.2.i386-1.deb
mfc295cncupswrapper-1.1.2-2.i386.deb
brscan3-0.2.11-4.i386.deb
brscan-skey-0.2.1-3.i386.deb

Was able to send a test print and it came out fine. But when I tried to send a print job - nothing. And, the scanner won't work either.

My computer is a Gateway GT5464. It's dual booted with Windows 7.

Ubuntu :: Cancel All Pending Print Jobs Automatically When Loging Out Of A Session

Dec 14, 2010

Sometimes I want to keep something in PDF files, so I print to the PDF "printer". However, if I inadvertetnly forget to check the PDF creation and rather take the real printer (which is usually only powered up, when I really want to print something), printing goes to the real printers queue and nothing happens ... until, possibly some sessions later, I want to print something (on paper rather than PDF) and power up the printer.

Then all inadvertent garbage comes first and chances are big, that the printer gets junk during power up or reconnecting the cable to the computer and then the whole thing is wasting even more paper, since escape-sequences sent to the printer get chopped and misunderstood by the printer.

In order to stop this alltogether, I am looking for a mehtod, to automatically flush the whole printing queue every time when I log out of my ubuntu session.

I know, there is a command lpq to tell which print jobs are pending, I also know the command cancel -Umyname -a, but this requests for my password. I want to kill all those incomplete or pending print jobs automatically.

And how do I hook such a command script into the logoff or shutdown sequence?

Debian Configuration :: Finger Print Reader?

Jan 22, 2010

debian unstable system i have a problem with thinkfinger. By default i should only swipe my finger and i don`t have to press enter after that. The problem is that now i have to press enter. For example in GDM if i enter my username i should swipe my finger and it should let me log in. Now after i swipe my finger nothing happenes unless i press enter.The problem may be related to the update of xorg. The same problem has been reported here: Is there anyone here who uses thinkfinger who could possibly have an idea why is this happening?I am using thinkfinger 3.0 on debian unstable with kernel 2.6.32-amd64, xorg 1.7.4, SGS Thomson Microelectronics Fingerprint Reader and GNOME. Other than the having to press enter i have no problems with thinkfinger. I am have patched thnikfinger with two patches:This patch solves the problem with thinkfinger taking too long to intialize:

General :: Printing From Command Line Won't Work - Just Sits In Print Queue

Apr 3, 2011

CUPS was not originally installed on my server, I have installed it but cannot print to my network printer. On my laptop, I can... they are both running the same version of Debian. What could be missing?

Here are some details...

I have two computers running the same version of Debian. One is a server with no GUI and the other is my laptop with GDM installed. My laptop (which prints with no problem) is connected via Wifi. My server is connected directly to the router via Ethernet. I cannot print from the server.

The printer is a Canon Pixma MP495 that connects to the router via Wifi. I have downloaded drivers for the printer from [url] and installed them successfully using dpkg on both computers.

Right now I have a regular text file that I am using for a test page. To print from my laptop (with success) I type:

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
