Action 1) Click on "New"
Response 1) a) "Authentication (fetching device list)" dialog box, request password for root.
Response 1) b) "Returning HTTP Forbidden for CUPS-Get-Devices (no URI) from localhost" appended to /var/log/cups/error_log
A2) Type root password and press enter in "Authentication" dialog box
R2) a) "CUPS server error" box, "There was an error during the CUPS operation: 'server-error-internal-error'.
R2) b) /var/log/cups/error_log:
E [17/Jun/2009:08:14:12 -0400] Unable to execute /usr/lib/cups/daemon/cups-deviced: insecure file permissions (0100777)
E [17/Jun/2009:08:14:12 -0400] Returning IPP server-error-internal-error for CUPS-Get-Devices (no URI) from localhost
A3) Click "OK" button in "CUPS server error" box
R3) a) "New Printer" dialog box opens
R3) b) /var/log/cups/error_log:

A4) Enter "lpr://192.168.1.2" and click "Find" button under "Seelct Device->Network Printer->Find Network Printer"
R5) "No printer found at that address."
Any ideas? I have installed the RPMs from Brother's web site for both LPR and CUPS-wrapper
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.
we are having new printers. At the moment we over 1000 machines on multiple sites but no print server they are manually added on the machine ( I know don't ask).
Anyway there is no way they would let use a windows server so the only option I have is to use linux however I little unsure if it is capable of doing the job I need it to do. Basically I want to add the printers on the linux server either using samba or ipp (I would assume samba would be best).
The reason i want to do this is when we have to do around the machines I just want to go around the machines and just the map the printer and it brings down the driver and config etc as we want them to duplex. The issue is I been trying to gain information on the internet and getting conflicting information apparently I can add the windows driver onto the server so when I map the printer it brings it down. However some guides state you still have through the whole process of adding the printer and then choosing the driver etc. Which kinda of makes it pointless to do the printer server since I would already have to do this anyway if we don't have one.
I just want to go be able to go around the machines and for example click star run and do something like \192.168.1.1printer01 and then it done kind of thing.
When I installed Fedora GNOME I could use my printer fine (But I had to change the recommended driver) Now, I switched to KDE and I plug-in my printer, It automaticly adds it, Now I have to delete it and re-add to fix the small bug... Except when I press "Remove Printer" I get "There was an error during the CUPS operation: 'client-error-forbidden'."
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 have a problem with a bad entry in my system-config-printer on my notebook computer which I think is interfering with my ability to print. I run fedora 10 on several systems in my house. On one desktop, I have a printer hosted which I think I have successfully setup for wireless network sharing (an HP895) using IPP.My problem seems to be a bad entry in my system-config-printer on my notebook computer which seems to stall when I try to print from applications (Firefox for example.) on the notebook. If I open up "Printing", I have 3 printers listed... one of them is for when the printer is attached directly to the notebook, one of them is the working printer description "printer" and the 3d is the bad entry. If I click on the bad entry to try to delete it, I don't have that option, but If I try to look at the "properties" for that entry, system-config-printer stalls (as do other applications when the printing dialog box starts up, and I have to force them to shut down.)
I will attach some screenshots and a copy of my /etc/cups/printers.conf file.How do I get rid of this "bad entry" in the system-config-printers GUI ? It doesn't seem to exist in the printers.conf file.
Running Debian 5, fairly new install. I have CUPS 1.38 installed. After much work, I got a PPD file for a Dell printer working - albeit not the exact one I need (5330dn), but close enough to work (3100cn). Question: when I look at the list of printers in CUPS, I see a bunch of extra printers that are on the network, but that I didn't add. How do I remove them (ie. I don't want them to be listed)?Going to Administration | Manage Printers shows me a black button named "Delete Printer", but clicking on it gives me an error message of:
Ok, while I'm here, I'll ask 2 other simpler questions: (2) anyone have the .ppd file for the Dell M5330dn printer? I've spent 90 minutes on the phone w/ the Dell tech support, and those guys are clueless....
(3) I have 4 printers of the same model. the first is working - is there an easy (command line) way of adding the other printers? Ie. can I just copy the /etc/cups/ppd file 3 times, renaming it to my other printer names (and ip addresses)?
I noticed that a bit after I had updated Ubuntu 10.04 through the Update Manager, I couldn't print at all! (I run ubuntu 10.04 on my laptop and have a networked HP Officejet 6110xi all-in-one printer connected to a comp running Windows XP home on the same LAN). Everything works when I boot up in windows vista, so the problem is definitely in Ubuntu.
First, I checked the printer jobs and it said that there was an error with a filter or something. Restarting the job didn't do squat, so I decided to try reinstalling my printer, but get the same CUPS error "error-client-not-possible" right after I click "Apply". I then Googled the issue but didn't find much of anything, so I thought I'd try reinstalling CUPS. No luck there either... Same error again and again.
I've been at this mess pardon my french for a few hours and i'm still going nowhere, original thread posted over at archlinux forums:Since my printer isn't visible on my server (works just fine on my client) I tried to manually add various URI (tried em all) and I went from "printer location not found, waiting for jobs, to printer isnt running".
In my opinion it should be working but it's not, i've read the linux printer database/various linux forums/#cups on freenode (idled for 2 days no response)/gentoo wiki/forums and the old tool "google" but most of the "hacks" I tried didn't work.There's a lot of google links with issues similars to my own and alas they are all unresolved, is this a typical problem with unix/CUPS over servers/network?Why is it so difficult for CUPS to detect my printer over my server?
Is it possible to use CUPs to share an already networked printer using IPP? The printer itself uses IPP.I know at first look this may seem like a silly thing to do, however I have a special case to set up a "print proxy server" due to security compliance reasons
Installed fedora/configued samba, shared printer and i am not able to access shared printer from any of the fedora machine. I am able to access the printer /shared folder from windows machine. I dont know the process of cups installation.
I have a client.conf in /etc/cups that points to a CUPS server. I don't have u/p access to this server. I also want to print to a local printer (USB), but I can't set it up - ALL attempts bring me back to the CUPS server password prompt. Is there some line I can add to the client.conf to allow me to use a local printer?
I am probably going to get blasted for this statement which is a result of four days of frustration.There are many people on here who are having problems getting their printers to work with Ubuntu. In my case it is version 10:04. I have been reading and trying fixes for four days. Nothing works.Surely this has got to the attention of the people who know what they are doing and design these programs. I sure don't know how to fix this, along with a lot of other users. We are not being lazy or arrogant. Nothing seems to work.Surely someone in the hierarchy can put in a patch that fixes this problem.The fact that Ubuntu won't print for so many people surely must be a priority inhe development of this software. So, please will one of the program developers fix this problem and send out a patch.
I wish to update the drivers for a printer which is being shared using samba - can I just upload the new drivers and overwrite the old or do I need to delete the old drivers before uploading the new ones
I have been working through setting up a CUPS server on my Dell Dimension 2000 which is running Ubuntu 10.04. I have the server set up and the printer added and have gone through all of the steps the tutorials suggest to get the printer to be viewed on the network (set it to shared, allow other machines to view shared printers, etc). However, I can't find this printer on any of the other machine on my LAN (one machine running mac os x the other running Ubuntu 10.10).
My setup is like this: i have a small office network and i bought yesterday a new multifunctional printer Samsung SCX-4521F. It is shared with samba and connected to the server with USB. In the network everyhing works well, users can log on to the domain, print from windows to the new shared Samsung printer and i even managed to enable network scannin. But when i try to print from MS DOS i wont get a single page. We have an accounting program in dos. All the other computers are XP Pro SP3. My server is running for 2 weeks the newest CentOS with all updates. I'v maped the network printer in windows witht the command "net use LPT1 \ServerSCX-4521F. I get a message that maping was completed succesfully. If i start a print job nothing happens. "Printing" or "warming up" flashes several times on the printer and thats it.

I'm working on CUPS server here now, I am new to the whole Fedora area, I'm starting to like it, tackling one service after the other. I have cups, which I don't recall installing but was there guess its a default. So I added a printer on my server, that was on a 10.0.1.1 block, added it as lpd://10.0.1.1/lab3printer. Ok that worked and printed from my server, but my problem is when other machines try to add the printer. I continue getting this problem Alberto "recoverable: Network host '10.0.11.25' is busy; will retry in 30 seconds..." On the computer it was added as printer lpd://10.0.11.25/alberto because my server has that IP and printer well named it alberto. I followed what this said with the xined.d [URL].
I have a Fedora 11 box with an HP Laserjet 1000 (connected by USB) a Windows XP machineBoth are on the same network. I am desperately trying to share the printer to the Windows XP box using IPP. The Windows XP machine recognizes the printer queue, configures correctly and then ... nothing. It simply does not print ! Printer sharing worked perfectly in Fedora 10, with CUPS 1.3, but something seems to have broken.I used the guide available at this adress and tried all mentionned possibilites
I have taken a break from using Fedora, but since getting my netbook Ive decided to dual boot with Windows 7 Started (warranty purposes) and Fedora 14 with Fedora as the default boot OS. Now Ive got my home network setup as follows:
Gaming laptop, Windows 7 Pro x64, external powered USB hub with 1.5TB HD with shared folders through windows share permissions and the HP Deskjet F2430 printer
Netbook 1, my wifes netbook, Windows 7 Starter, has 100% access to the windows shares and the printer.
Netbook 2, my netbook, Fedora 14 has windows shared folder access but no printer access. In Windows 7 Starter has access to windows shared folders and printer access.
All of them are wirelessly networked through my Linksys WRTG54GS thats flashed with DD-WRT Mega firmware. The only laptop that has a hardwired connection to the printer and HD is my gaming laptop. how to go about allowing this? My printer doesnt show up in the CUPS wizard.
This post is for an HP parallel printer but I think it should work for at least "some" other parallel printers.I am sure that someone smarter than me will follow up this post with a "well, just do this and that" and you will have your HP Laserjet 6P printer ready to go, but since questions litter the forums of MANY distros on how to get "at least" an HP parallel printer to work, I'll post this anyway.This may or may not work for you if you do not have an HP but you can try it.The install printer box will let you do an install for an HP Parallel and it asks for how it is to talk to it, through CUPS sock or "local host'. When we get through what I recommend you should chose "local host".
I have installed Canon ImageRunner 2018i on my linux box using CUPS web interface. When I try to install this as a network printer from a Windows XP machine, the windows XP machine keeps asking me for a device driver. Is there a way to configure the printer on CUPS/Samba so that when I try to install it on Windows XP machine as a network printer, it does not ask me for a device driver?
I have a FC12 machine installed with CUPS and a CUPS-PDF printer. Printer are shared and works fine with this URL:
I have both client machine Windows XP and Windows 7. Both has setup the above printer and print fine without any problem. I can get the PDF file from windows test print. The only problem is I face is wait for around 20 seconds for printer dialog prompt out when I press print button in Windows 7. However, my windows XP never t have this problem. The printer dialog prompt out immediately when I press print button.
I am trying to setup an HPC4400 printer attached to a Windows XP box on a Fedora-11 box with the latest updates and am getting the error " Cups server error Client-error-not-possible ". Using the Cups GUI on the fedora-11 box I can find the printer, I get verify that the shared printer exists but still get the message when I try to install it.
Trying to set up a modem connection under FC11, using the applet under System/Administration/Network/Add gives the following error:
Local variables in innermost frame: If the script is faulty, could you guide me through setting it up by hand? I am required to be away from my normal location for a few weeks starting Monday and need to keep in touch.
I'm unable to change the setting of the actual printer on my system, cant even delete itthe system ask me the root password, after i enter it, i always get this message "There was an error during the CUPS operation:'client-error-not-authorized'."
