Networking :: Vista Printer Will Not Print From Network

Sep 8, 2009

I'm using Slackware64 13.0 on a laptop. I've set up the network printer which lives on a Windows Vista machine (not my choice) in the family room. I am able to send print jobs to the printer. That part works fine, but the printer does not print. It simply stacks up print jobs with "error - printing" in the status of the first print job.I think I understand what's happening. I'm sending the print jobs to the print server as "Guest" and I have no guest account activated on the vista machine. I'm sitting here racking my brain (ie googling my goddamn fingers into stumps) trying to figure out how to send the jobs to the print server as indubitableness.

For the goddamn life of me I can't figure out what I need to do to send these print jobs as a specific user. I've tried adding "valid users = indubitableness" to smb.conf and I've tried using the -U flag when running lpadmin to add the printer to my system in the first place.The configuration wizard for windows doesn't appear to have any options to enable guest access or to add a specific remote location and/or user to the allow list.I'm at a loss and I'm losing my goddamn mind.

Networking :: Network Printing - Can't Print From Vista

Nov 7, 2010

I'm running Mint 9 as my main network and my wifes Acer Aspire 5610 running Windows vista. My problem is that I can't print from vista. It prints a test page just fine but when I tell it to actually print a document, the status says: "Access denied, unable to connect" I have 2 printers connected and they installed fine in Vista one is a HP LaserJet 2100 series and the other is an HP Photosmart C5280. Like i said, they both print the teat page just fine.

Networking :: Print With Use Of Different User On Network Printer

Mar 25, 2010

The company I work for decided to use printers on which one should log in with there MS Windows password. After logging in, one could print there documents. This is ok for the MS windows office PC's, but not for the Linux based systems.The Linux user accounts have a different name than the MS Windows accounts.Because of this, it is not possible to print with that Linux user account. I can create a Linux user account with the same username as the MS Windows account, so that all users can use that account if they want to print something on the network printers. They can use it like:$ ssh <username equal to Windows>@<hostname> "oowriter <path>/<file>"

Now they can print a file from oowriter to the network printer.So my question is, is it possible to use the account name that is equal to the MS windows account name by default?

MS Windows account name = milk
Linux account name = schuurs
Linux account "milk" is created for printing by all users.

user works with account "schuurs" and prints with user "milk" automatically without the use of the ssh string mentioned before.

Hardware :: Can't Print Fedora To A Vista Shared HP Printer

Mar 25, 2010

my 64 bit XP/fedora 12 box prints fine to a shared printer when I am in XP. The HP color lasterjet CP1215 printer is hosted by a 32 bit vista machine. I can located the printer on the network from Fedora 12 using the add a pinter utility, but I cannot print. I get no error message on the linux machine, but the "submitted " dialog box never goes away (not sure if it is supposed to go away). On the vista machine in the printers dialog box it says "remote downlevel document" in the document name section and "0kb" in the size section, then goes away. the printer does not make any noise.

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:


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.

Debian :: Installing Network Printer - Able To Print To One Of The Network Printers From My Desktop

May 10, 2010

Total Newb here, sorry. I am pseudo-IT at work and have set up a desktop with Debian 5 (accidentally overwrote Windows in the process, but there you go). We are set up with network printers here (all Windows), and I was wondering how to go about being able to print to one of the network printers from my Linux desktop. Can I even connect to the Windows network with this desktop (it is hooked up)? Understand, I do NOT want to screw up anything on the network - they won't let me play anymore if I do. If I download the Linux driver, what do I do next?

Ubuntu :: Print To A Network Printer From 9.10 Install?

Mar 15, 2010

I am trying to print to a network printer from my 9.10 install. The printer is Canon_MF4360-4390, when browsing for printers, cups finds it immediately. I found drivers for this printer online (driver is called UFR_II_Printer_Driver_for_Linux_V200_uk_EN). The drivers installed without any problems.

I can go through cups and add the printer successfully. I can even print a test page that shows up in the queue as completed. However, nothing comes out of the printer. Also, there is nothing in /var/log/cups/error_log to show that an error has occurred.[URL]..

Hardware :: Trying To Print On HP JetDirect Network Printer

Dec 10, 2010

I'm getting mad trying to use a HP Business Inkjet 2200 over the network with my brand new Fedora 14 box.. The detection part is OK but I can print only 1 page, whatever it is: the test page or the first page of a document. After that, the printer is locked in "print" mode and no one can print any more until it was power down and powered up again. I say that it is locked in "print" mode because its LCD screen displays "print" instead of "ready".

I've tried all the different drivers available (foomatics and other gutenprints).I've tried with the JetDirect protocol or through a samba share.Always the same result: only one page printed then locked for every one..I'll try to find a way to attach the cups troubleshoot and a wireshark capture, they're to big for now..Could any body help me ? If not for me, do it for the community: my colleagues there all say that's normal since I'm using linux!!!

Ubuntu :: Win7 Not Printing To Network Printer But Vista Will?

Jan 9, 2011

I have a HP c4100 series printer connected to my Ubuntu computer. This computer prints just fine. I also have a Windows Vista computer that's connected to the Ubuntu HP via CUPS (by installing network printer with path of This computer also prints just fine. My problem is I just got a new Windows 7 laptop, and connected it to the HP via CUPS the same way as the Vista machine. It installed fine. However the Win7 Laptop will not print. When I try to print, it acts like it is going to print, but never gives an error and the file never makes it into the printer queue (on either the win7 or ubuntu machines, i have tried printing with both queues open to see what happens).

Things I have already changed:
On the Ubuntu machine:Changed all the printer settings on printer to allow any and all connections including printing from the internet.
Edited the /etc/samba/smb.conf to allow CUPS printing and allow guest access
On the Win7 machine:Fixed my LAN security settings (disabled require 128bit encryption, send LM and NTLM responses)

Reinstalled printer several times. I have googled this issue almost every day for a month and tried every setting that I have came across (changed them back if it didn't help). So far nothing has worked for me, and this is my last ditch effort to get this printer working. Does anyone know why I can not print from my Windows 7 machine to a printer connected to my Ubuntu machine? Especially when I CAN print from the UBUNTU and Vista machines.

Debian Configuration :: Cannot Print With HP2600n Network Printer

Jan 11, 2011

I run Debian Squeeze but I have the system installed step by step from minimal installation. So I'm not sure if I have forgotten basic packages important for printing. I open system-config-printer to add a new network printer. In the list of the Network Printers after some seconds it appears the HP Color LaserJet 2600n. I chose it and hit Forward. A new window opens that says that system is searching for Drivers and finally I'm ready for printing.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Unable To Print To A HP Laserjet P 1007 Network Printer

Jul 9, 2010

I have a Windows print server (Win XP SP2) and a 1 opensuse client. I have setup cups as per the following document:

Printer Sharing: Windows Print Server for Suse/openSUSE Linux Clients [Samba and LPD]

I am not using Samba. The setup went fine, but I am not able to print to it. There are other clients (all Windows) that are printing fine to this print server. The following is what I see in the /var/log/cups/error_log:

[Job 3] recoverable: Unable to connect to printer; will retry in 30 seconds...

I am using DHCP in this LAN. Ping is working fine (client's hosts file updated with the print server's ip address.). This looks like a networking issue.

Ubuntu Networking :: How To Share Printer Between Kubuntu And Vista

Feb 2, 2010

Is there someone out there that makes something simple that you can network and share a printer between Kubuntu and Vista? I have my office computer running Kubuntu, which also has the printer attached to it. My media machine downstairs is running Vista, which I'd like to be able to print and share files from. I've been doing some reading that you need to use Samba. So, I installed Samba through Synaptic, and it appears that nothing happened. So, I did some more googling, and found I had to install something about system-config-samba, so I did.

I now have a Samba icon under k-menu > System > Samba. However, when I click on this icon, nothing happens. It does nothing (just like clicking on the Network Manager icon, which does nothing as well). So, I am now utterly confused. Is there a way to change samba settings via gui? I'm not comfortable with typing unknown commands into the terminal, as usually there is no explanation as to what's going on. If there was a step by step explanation, that would be ok, but as of now, there is nothing. Is there a simple setup tool out there?

Networking :: Using Samba For Connecting To Vista Shared Printer

May 24, 2009

I'm trying to set up a Samba printer in Debian linux. The printer is being shared by a computer running windows vista. Some of the information I've got in the process. Sharing seems to be working, the printer seems to be detected and authenticating (I've tried invalid values and the utility I'm using to set things up says it cannot verify when I use invalid values, but with things as they are it claims everything checks out).

When I go into CUPS it says it detects the printer and everything is working. However, printing a test page causes the job to be immediately complete and nothing happens. It seems that the job is getting lost somewhere in the process. Could it be a firewall issue? I feel like the right ports must be unblocked since I can query the computer and verify the printer, etc. I have a laptop with vista which I installed a printer on and was able to print to that computer just fine. So it doesn't seem to be a Vista thing.

I got it to work using another driver, but not the 'correct' one for this printer. I have searched a bit and don't see anything about ubuntu 10.10, just older versions. Or should I just network her to my printer....?

Ubuntu Networking :: Cannot Print From Other Computers To Local Printer

Dec 30, 2010

In Ubuntu 10.10, I have my printer, an Epson D120, shared. I can print from the computer itself, but other computers cannot print to it. Both Ubuntu and Windows machines have the printer successfully installed. They can access it, I can access CUPS from all these machines and the the job queue even reports the jobs sent from these computers. But the page count is unknown and nothing is printed, although it says the job is completed.

I'm quite desperate to get this to work. It would suck if I need to go back to Windows just because some minor thing goes wrong. I really don't understand why local prints are OK, but prints from the network are not working.

Networking :: Can't Print From Windows 7 - Samba Printer Share

Aug 30, 2010

I'm giving up in ever hoping that I'll get printing working with windows 7 with the strange comments I've found on the net. Basically I have a samsung ML2240 printer shared on the network, everything can print to it fine except for my windows 7 laptop. It's shared via Samba.


Once you have extracted the driver files, copy the 32-bit drivers to the /usr/share/cups/drivers directory and the 64-bit drivers to the /usr/share/cups/drivers/x64 directory exactly as named below:

[Windows 2000 and higher]

However after checking this, I dont have the files named within int he correct folder on my windows system :

%WINDIR%SYSTEM32SPOOLDRIVERSX643 folder for 64-bit drivers.I've tried installing the printer via the windows installer, however this adds the driver then tells me its not working and fails to print. I really dont know where to turn with this one. I've tried installing the samsung supplied drivers from the website. However they still fail to connect.
