General :: How To Setup Network Printer / Copier / Scanner / Fax

I do not have the hardware to do this yet. I simply want advice on what route to take before I make the investment. If I had the money I would simply invest in a wireless combo setup, but I unfortunately do not. I do however have an idea. I am currently stuck with a standalone system that is running XP strictly for the use of magicjack. I was thinking I could hook up this combo machine to that computer and network it in via that. However, would the scanning capability only reside in the hardwired computer or could I do a network scan somehow?

Ubuntu :: Scanner And Printer Used As A Copier?
I am delving into the world of scanners for the first time. With 9.04, my Cannon CanoScan LiDE 25 works without a hitch in ScanLite and Scanner Utility but not in XSane. I am able to scan photos and such and get good quality images. I have an infrequent need to make copies of pieces of paper and have been experimenting a bit trying to make my scanner and printer act like a copier. what type of images to take and how to print them?

Ubuntu :: Unable To Set Up HP PSC 1315 Printer Scanner Copier
I'm posting here because I'm having trouble setting up by HP PSC 1315 printer scanner copier machine. I believe I have the proper drivers already installed. However, nothing happens when I try printing a test page. Also when I try printing a web page, it goes through the motions. Then I get an error message saying the computer can't recognize the printer.

Ubuntu Installation :: Unable To Set Up HP PSC 1315 Printer Scanner Copier
I'm trying to connect my HP PSC 1315 printer scanner copier to my laptop, where I'm using Ubuntu Hardy. I checked my synaptic package manager. It appears I have HLIP and the other drivers already installed. However, I'm unable to print a thing. Nothing happens when I try printing a test page. When I try to print a regular web page, I get an error message saying the psc 1310 is not connected.

Hardware :: PPD File Needed For Panasonic DP4530 Printer / Copier
I am reasonably new to linux, and installed Fedora Core 4 (64 bit - AMD Sempron) on my desktop at work in a totally Windows environment. (Have FC4 on my 32 bit Celeron at home and can print just fine on my Epson Stylus Colour 740). I was able to print to the Windows networked postscript-capable MinoltaDi351 (copier/laser ptr) AND access the options with the ppd file I found from someone in Australia. The new printer is being set up in the office, but they postscript module is not to be installed till next week.

Does anyone know where I might find a ppd file for a Panasonic DP4530 printer/copier/fax at my workplace. If I can't make this work, my boss will give me static about using Linux. (So far she says whatever you want as long as you can make everything work, ie. open Excel docs, etc). I need Linux because I find it a good platform to learn MySQL and php, and am learning to make an inventory system to improve on their clipboard and manilla folders system.

Ubuntu Networking :: Can't Locate Printer Drivers In Network Printer Setup?
I am trying to set uamsung clx2160N as a standalone network printer on my home network. It is a printer with standalone network capability and is connected directly to my router and has a static IP number. We have a few Windows computers at home and they had no problem detecting the printer, installing the drivers and working. Unfortunately my Ubuntu computer recognises the printer and I can even access it's setup and diagnositcs through its IP number. However when I try to add it as a printer, drivers for it cannot be located. #ve tried setting it up three ways:1. Using Samsung's own setup package - finds printer and all the details it needs to work but offers no drivers2. Using Ubuntu's printer setup - recognises printer but stalls at Searching for Drivers dialog3. Trying to *** printer using CUPS - no problem finding and recognising printer, but when I come to search for the driver I get Internal Server Error.

I have of course been trying to do all of these as root. That's the limit of my knowledge reached and searches on the net aren't helping me either. The printer works fine directly connected via USB, so the drivers are on the computer somewhere. How do I get them set up to use the printer on the network?

Hardware :: Scanner Not Recognized In Ubuntu Epson Stylus NX510 Printer/scanner?
I was able to get my Epson Stylus NX510 printer up and running (after much issue), but I can't get the scanner working. I'm on a laptop, and the printer/scanner is wifi enabled and broadcasts with its own IP address. I can print with no problem, but xsane and simple scan don't recognize the scanner. I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx.

Fedora :: How To Setup Network Printer
Just installed Fedora 9 on my machine and want to setup printer. No experience about this and asked few coworkers here, seems nobody actually know how to do it. Tried several times, not success. Company has few printers, each of them has a label on it to tell us the server and printer name, say "\waspTOSHIBA PCL6" or "\peaprn1CTHP9050DN". Most of us use Windows XP. Setup print on Windows is an easy job. But not easy for linux.

Networking :: Samba Network Printer Setup - How To Add
I would like to create a dedicated Samba print server. I have two printers on my LAN, one printer came with its own NIC and the other is on a Win server box. I would like to setup Samba so that I can just access that server (Samba printer server) and both network printers will show up on there for me to connect to. On that note, can I also load the drivers on my Samba server? Drivers for different Windows flavours and also Mac OSX drivers.

Networking :: Setup Network Printer To Combination Machine
I have two Linux machines both running Debian (I do not want Windows to be involved at all). One is a desktop and one is a laptop. I desire to connect a not-yet-purchased printer/scanner combination machine only to the internal LAN via my router (Linksys WRT54G) via Ethernet cable, or via wireless if the printer/scanner has that capability. I want to be able to print to that printer (and scan from its scanner) by only having to turn on the printer/scanner and only one of the other computers, and not have to have both Linux machines turned on in order to print and/or scan.

So my questions are:
When I look at specific models of printers, what should I be looking for in their specifications that indicates that this configuration is possible (i.e., should I be looking exclusively for printers that say they are "wireless printers" or "network printers")?The reason I ask this question: In my online searching, I thought "networked printer" or "stand-alone network printer" meant just that, but what I found instead are pages and pages of instructions on how to connect the printer locally to a Linux machine, with the associated setup to allow that Linux machine to serve print requests coming from other machines on the LAN. And that approach is not what I want to do (with the notable exception of temporary setup to validate that the printer is responding to requests for printing and scanning from Linux).

Are there particular brands, makes, or models that I would have better luck in getting to work in this manner (i.e., "better stick with HP or Xerox")? Am I kidding myself that a combination printer/scanner would work in the same fashion and still be relatively easy to set up on both Linux machines without resorting to some Windows-centric approach? Result of my searching so far (I have not worked my way through all of these in detail, but plan to): References to local printer connection which is not what I want:
Set up a network printer using cups
Set up a printer

The post inside Setting_Up_a_Network_Printer_using_CUPS that starts with "running an HP Photosmart 8450 as a stand-alone networked printer" (where is the permalink?) is as close as I could get, but I am concerned that the instructions given are specific to the HP Photosmart 8450, or specific to the HP vendor, versus for all printers that can be connected to an Ethernet network (not that being locked into HP is going to be a problem necessarily, but I would like to know why if that is the case). Linux compatible printers says "Have a look at LinuxPrinting for known working drivers for printers data base. Also buy from a linux friendly company, ie HP, Brother, Epsom." Later in that thread, someone said Definitely don't buy canon.

Slackware :: --current - Hplip Won't Setup To Network Capable Multifunction Printer
I'm wondering if anyone else has this issue before I send a note off to Slackware on this.

The --current hplip package can't seem to actually complete the installation of a networked hp printer that has the printer physically plugged into the network.

The hplip app initially does detect the device, then I click next, then it says installation failed as it can't connect to the device.

Perhaps I'm doing something wrong.

I am however able to build, and run an older hplip that --current used a while back and it works splendid for adding a printer over the network.

I'm using version hplip-3.9.4b-i486-1 but I know that's not a big help to the project.

Fedora Installation :: Setup XP File And Printer Sharing In Home Network
I'm going to setup a File and Printer Sharing in my little home network... 3 Computers actively connected to the Web through a single ADSL2+ Wireless Router (number of Computers will increase later) At the moment 2 of the computers are running Fedora 10 and 1 running Windows XP...

Now i want to setup the 3 machines to use 1 printer which is connected to one of the Fedora 10 machines, and i want File Sharing to be enabled so each machine can easily view each others shared files and also be able to print when ever needed (ofcourse the machine with the printer will have to be on for the printing process to happen) I've installed Samaba on each Fedora Machine, enabled sharing but i dont seem to be able to view the Windows machine or each other....
