Fedora :: Cups 'Error Printing Too Many Failed Attempts'
Jun 25, 2009
I googled this, to no avail. I've restarted cups, to no avail.This is a Networked Printer, but i have little doubt that can be ruled out as an issue.If i want to print an Image or Plain Text file, i get this error; if i print with OpenOffice, i do NOT get this error and it prints fine.I have also gotten a similar error, like "permission denied" or something, but i cannot recall exactly what it said, and cannot seem to recreate it at the moment.I have been getting this for quite some time now (months), but never found out why. Any ideas?
I have Ubuntu LTS 10.04.2 x86-64 running with default Cups installed. Now I am trying to print on a Canon iRC1021i network printer using a x64 PPD file. Trying to print a test page delivers a "server-error-internal-error".
After this I ran the debugging mode which delivered the troubleshooting.zip file.
I have a FC11 box, with an HP prineter attached. I trying to print from my laptops after I have setup samba and shared the printer , It was working fine when I was installing FC4 and FC5. I am not sure what is missing. when I tried to print from the XP box I got "Test pge failed to print" error.
I have been able (with some hair pulling and gnashing of teeth) to print from outside the LAN to the printer connected via USB to the desktop computer at home, until the last upgrade. The laptop will forst say the printer may not be connected, but eventually (usually) after a while says the job was sent to the printer. The log files on the desktop - serving as the printer server have an error message in cups/error_log that I am not familiar with, and don't believe I have seen before. I am sure if I could decipher that error and figure out how to change the behavior to get rid of it, it would once again work. Printing from within the LAN is a no-brainer as it has been for the last several releases. The error that I get when trying to print outside the LAN (via the internet) is:
cupsdAcceptClient: 12 from <WAN IP>:631 (IPv4) Unable to encrypt connection from <WAN IP> - GnuTLS internal error. I am missing something as far as authentication from the laptop to the desktop. how to fix it.
Not sure if this is hardware or software so I am raising the question here. I have an Ithaca 280 printer that worked great on fedora 8 with cups 1.3.3. When I upgraded my server and installed Fedora 12 with cups 1.4.2 i noticed a 5 second delay between sending a print job to the printer and it actually printing. This issue doesnt happen with laser printers, just the ithaca thermal printer. I have tested this with 10 other ithaca 280 printers and all of them have the same result. I am using a raw driver, and it is an IP based printer setup for Jetdirect in cups. The setup is identical on a Fedora 8 server as it is on this Fedora 12 server. I have even taken the steps to upgrade to cups 1.4.4 just to see if it was corrected in a newer version, but the issue is still there. I have a utility that writes the raw text directly to the printer which i used to test that it wasnt an issue with the printer or its internal print server. That utility allows the document to print immediately.
what is causing this delay and how to correct it? If not, does anyone know how to print directly to the printer using cups instead of letting it go to the queue first like cups normally does for print jobs?
Trying to set up a printer for the 1st time using CUPS's GUI system-config-printer. Trying to set up a printer that will print in landscape mode, 132 characaters per line, and 66 lines per page.Got it to print in landscape mode but the line wraps at 108 characters.What settings do I need to get it not to wrap. Current settings are:
I'm having a problem trying to set up my HP OfficeJet 6310 printer with Fedora 12. This is with a clean install, SELinux disabled and Seems to be some issue specific to Fedora, as I've used the same setup with the same hardware without problems in other distributions. I have installed all the HP files I believe should be installed. Anyway, my printer is on my wireless network. I can see the printer on the network, as is the case with my other computers.
I followed the standard setup I use with any other distro....open a terminal and enter "hp-setup." The HP Setup utility opens and I go through the standard procedure of choosing /Network/Ethernet" as my means of connecting. Moving on, the HP OfficeJet 6310 is found without a problem. When I attempt to "Add Printer," however, I am then getting an error. The error shows, "Printer Queue Setup Failed. Restart CUPS and try again." Looking at [URL], I get to CUPS but can get nothing there so far as a printer goes.
I managed to print from fedora without rebooting into windows.
--installed rpms provided by canon --installed cups --logged into cups --selected my printer (ip2770) --printed a page--and bang! too dark!
In cups, or on the computer, I only have one option, 600 dpi, which I'm assuming is why it is so dark, ugly, and nothing like it needs to look like This whole process (which is way over my head) put two printers in my printer set up, both called ip2700 series, and I'm not sure which should be the default. I am thrilled to be printing now from linux, but not happy with the quality.
I get this error ALL THE TIME after a reboot if I try to print. Going to the printing applet to add the printer does no good because Lucid is not connected to the CUPS server. I found that the work-around below fixes the issue for the current session.
I am getting some error when i compile cross compile "dbus-1.2.20". error Code: checking for XML_ParserCreate_MM in -lexpat... no configure: error: Could not find expat.h, check config.log for failed attempts so i downloaded te expat library sources i cross compiled. But again i am getting same error. I think i have to add "-lexpat" in LDFLAG. But i dont know how to do that.
Anyway im trying to do a simple thing pointed out in the thread title. Everything is set up, cups-pdf works, in dosemu.conf lpt1 command is "lpr" printer-timeout is 10... I "work" in an accounting agency that has a program written in clipper back in 1992. Apparently some prints from this program produce text/plain and some produce application/octet-stream. text/plain is printed. The later is always aborted. I have uncommented the lines in mime.types and mime.convs. Which are located in /usr/share/cups/mime.
I'm not looking to setup a print server. I want to print documents TO an existing network printer while I'm logged in via ssh to my Ubuntu Server 10.4 command line shell. Things like admin emails, pdf docs, etc.
All the clients on my LAN are able to print directly to the network printer without any help from the Ubuntu Server. I don't want to setup CUPS on the server unless that's the only way to print from the server itself to a networked printer.
Do I need CUPS or can I print from the command line in some other way?
I'm doing work at a home office that uses all Ubuntu computers. They have wireless printing setup on a few computers using CUPS. One of the computer's wireless printing isn't working. could someone please help me with getting this set up? Is this something really basic that most people would understand how to do?
I just brought up a new server on RHEL4 to replace an existing older one. The server is using CUPS for printing. I copied the cupsd.conf, printers.conf, and lpoptions files over from the old server. I also copied the printer files in the /etc/cups/ppd directory over to the new server. But I can't get printing to work. And when I run system-config-printer-tui I don't see any of the printers in the dialog box. What other file(s) am I missing?
Using Debian Lenny.Using CUPS and lp. I would like to know how to print files from Openoffice such as doc files, pdf and html. I know I can print from the applications, but sometimes I want to print using lp or xpp. I would like to also set the font size on pdf or html pages before I print. I never know what size of print I'm going to get. Can I chose the font I want to use in text files with Cups?
I am doing work at an office that only uses Linux Ubuntu 9.10 . They have wireless printing setup on all of the computers there, except one of them isn't working. I was not the one who setup the wireless printers so I'm not clear on how to do this.
I am facing a peculiar issue when printing Japanese text through CUPS (though I am not sure if this is the right forum).
I developed a Java application (that uses a graphical object to print to a PrinterJob class) that prints text (of Japanese characters) to a printer. When I login in en_US/en_UK locale, the Japanese characters get printed from my Java app just fine. However, when I login in ja_JP and give a print job through my Java app, no Japanese text is printed at all. I get characters from only within the ASCII subset printed instead. I am using Serif and Courier New fonts in my app. Relevant details are:
In ja_JP, a@a:/usr/share/cups/charsets$ fc-match serif:lang=ja ttf-japanese-mincho.ttf: "Sazanami Mincho" "Regular" a@a:/usr/share/cups/charsets$ fc-match sans serif:lang=ja ttf-japanese-gothic.ttf: "VL Gothic" "regular"
I am running 10.04 beta2 and have installed cups-pdf printing. I can print to the PDF printer and it works fine saving the file to ~/PDF. It saves it with the PDF extension as expected. I am trying to save the file by default to a windows share. I changed the DEVICE URI line to smb://HOME/SERVER/PDF. When I print, the job shows up on the windows share but without a PDF extension
I installed cups_pdf and I am able to print pdf files locally but not Windows.
When I connect to the PDF printer in Windows it ask for a driver so I point it to the generic Microsoft one. I also tried some hp ones as well. When I print I don't get any errors or anything like that. The file appears in the PDF printer queue and disappears but doesn't make it to my computer. I have tried using instructions from various Internet sites but the information is vague, wants me to edit lines that don't exist in cupsd.conf, and/or adds lines that breaks the back-end scheduler to the PDF printer. Every once in a while they tell me to use a raw driver for Windows but what does that mean.
So right now Windows can see and interact with my PDF printer but the file never gets made on the Linux machine. I have reinstalled the cups-pdf, created a pdf printer, and windows can see and connect to it but wants a driver. I am using Ubuntu 10.04 and Windows 7 and everything is up to date. What do I need to do?
At my work we use CUPS to maintain all of our printers. I'd like to use Ubuntu to print a ton of files in a directory. What command would I use to print all files ending in ".html" to a specific printer? I tried some command and all it printed was stacks of pure junk. Is there an option to choose a certain tray to print from? Would the command be Code: lpr -p(printername) *html ? I have no idea how to specify a certain tray.
I'm running Red Hat Linux and CUPS 1.2.4. I can print a test page to a Win 7 shared printer ok. However, when I issue the lpr command from a user or root, it won't print. The CUPS message is "Remote host did not accept data file (1)" and the job just hangs till I cancel it. The only thing I can tell that is different is that when the test page from CUPS is generated, it uses user "guest". When I try to print it using the lpr command, the user is "eddie" or "root". I tried adding a user account named "eddie" to the Win 7 box, I can print successfully from both CUPS and users on several other Win XP boxes.
I connect my laptop to several different networks and need to print in each of them when I am connected there. In the past (ie 12.2 and earlier) I solved this by running a cups server on the laptop and having it poll the appropriate cups servers in each network.
I was thinking that perhaps in 13.0 I could bypass having the cups server on the laptop and that KDE would "see" the various cups servers available. However this does not seem to work...
recently i have upgraded my centos 5.0 or 5.1 installation using 'yum upgrade' to centos 5.4 since the upgrade I am unable to print any PDF files as landscape, they get printed but do not seem to be rotated and are aligned a little bit less than when using portrait (test using the GUI and LP)
when printing a text file in portrait and landscape everything goes well tested on labelprinter Brother QL-580N and tested on Samsung SCX-5530FN Laserprinter both using the network I already tried 'yum downgrade cups' this works but with no success
I have tried and tried to get Ubuntu up and running again after a fatal crash. Unknown reason. I have burned several copies of Karmic and Jaunty, but the only one that will come up is an old copy of Jaunty Live CD. Chksum have matched on the disks and the disk integrity (the last time came up with 1 error, but it did not say where. I have used SystemRescue64, Rescue-remix for Karmic, MHDD, Ultimate boot disk, and have reformated and partitioned my 640GB drive. One partition is formated to EXT3 and the other is unallocated. Both testdisk and memtest show positive. No disk will complete a permanent install. At least one error shuts it down even after fixing broken packages and sometimes there are 3or 4 errors msgs. Last night the error was something in Open Office, I don't recall more than that. Here are the errors I picked out of todays logfiles. They are prety much in order as posted in the various logs:
Why is it that the darn printer keeps breaking on this thing (Ubuntu) ??? It's either every damn update that keeps messing this up. One computer is bad enough, I can't imagine having to take care of even five with this thing always screwing something up. What the hell is going on??? Yeah I'm tired of this thing always messing up the printer. Please fix this thing, separate the browsers if you have to, do whatever it takes, but please STOP messing up the printers...and I don't even print that often.Oh yeah, when you first start the OS up, the drive seems to go on for a while longer now. I only put the regular updates and don't tweak anything.
