OpenSUSE Hardware :: Cannot Print 11x17 Landscape On HP Laserjet 5100
Mar 5, 2010
I am trying to print a schematic from KPDF (Suse 11.2) onto an 11x17 sheet of paper. Regardless of the printer settings I use or which driver I choose it won't rotate the image and fill the page. I have the same problem with kiCAD. If I use Okular it prints part of the drawing in one corner at the 8.5x11 scale.
My setup: openSUSE 11.4. Acer Extensa 5635ZG Epson Stylus Photo PX710W, connected with WiFi
I have just discovered that I can't print text from libreoffice writer/calc if the layout is set to landscape. The letters seems to have been stretched and printed over each other. If I print the same document in kword/kspread everything is printed as it should be. I have generated a pdf of the document and printed from okular/acroread, even then it's not printed correctly. Although it looks ok in okular/acroread. What else that can be seen is that when it's wrongly printed the printout is printed in the opposite direction compared to when it's printed correctly. I.e. the tail comes first on the paper so to say. Where should I begin to search for faults?
I've been banging my head for two days now trying to get my HP Laserjet 1020 to work. I've gotten the drivers working on the box itself (Opensuse 11.3 x64), but I couldn't get it to print from my laptop (Ubuntu Lucid). Ideally, I'd like to end up with a functional printer which can be used either from the desktop machine (Opensuse) or from the laptop (Ubuntu) through NFS.
After so many attempts at fixing it, I've not made it such that I can't print at all, from either system. I'm considering re-installing Opensuse (or just going back to Kubuntu, which recognizes the printer without a hitch). But before I do so, I figured I'd ask here.
Here are my issues, and attempts at solution:
1) I tried adding the printer both through CUPS, through YAST and through hp-setup, using the hpijs driver. Each time the printer is recognized, but a test page won't print.
2) I tried building the foo2zjs driver, as outlined here: HowTo Install a HP LaserJet 1020 printer in Suse 10.x, 11.x It came up with dependency problems repeatedly on the last step (sudo make install-hotplug) . I gave up when it told me that it was conflicting with an installed package (system-config-printer-udev) which was not installed.
3) Perhaps related problem: on the CUPS web interface, I get a "forbidden" message when I try to change the options on the CUPS server to allow remote access.
a) I've already added myself to the lp group.
b) I changed the permissions (+rx) on the /dev/lp0 to allow myself access
c) I'm able to get to the CUPS page on the client machine, so the port 631 (I think) must be open. I say "I think," because there's no option to allow CUPS in YAST firewall settings, for some reason.
I've been following guides here and there, but I'm afraid that I've borked my cupsd.conf file through all the edits. Here it is:
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.
I want to print Landscape and I would normally use Code: lp -ddestination -olandscape However this isn't working, it could be another problem (I am passing to a windows print spooler) but I would like to know if I have got the command right.
I have a Calc spreadsheet that has 3 sheets. The first page is set for Portrait and the remaining pages are Landscape. Currently I am printing each page as a separate print job.I would like to print the entire Calc pages as one job where the printer prints the first page as portrait and the remaining pages as landscape without user intervention.
I do not see any command in the print dialog or in open office dialogs that tell the printer to change orientation. It seems that OpenOffice fails to tell the printer the page orientation. Is there any way to accomplish this. If a macro is required how do you write it and how is it executed?
We are running RHEL 5.1 on the 188.8.131.52 kernel. We are attempting to pass print jobs to a Lexmark printer with the lp -o landscape command. The print jobs continue to print "portrait". Is anyone aware of this issue and is there a work-around to get these print jobs to print in landscape format?
I have tried to download the latest version of CUPS but do not know how to install it properly using command line commands above 'sudo' and 'sh', and I have tried to install HPLIP but it needs 'cups-devel' installed apparently. My Debian can see the 1020 clearly enough to identify it and give its status as idle, via the CUPS interface. When I try and print a Test page it goes to the spooler, says it is printing OK, but nothing prints. The job then disappears and appears on CUPS as completed. In the old days we would have sent a eof() to make the printer work. Have I got a bug in my HP Laserjet 1020 driver? Or am I missing the great plug-in that is not on the Synaptic Package Manager The SPM says I have HPLIP installed.
I have a hp p1102w laserjet printer that works in windows. However after connecting it through Suse Linux 11.2 it is recognized and the printer name is showing but there is no driver for the printer. This is a usb connection. I have an 1100a laserjet connected that works but it is a parallel port.
Any suggestions? I haven't been able to find any special drivers on the web.
My LaserJet is connected to an old desktop machine that has it shared. The configuration on that desktop is correct, since I have been printing through it from other Windows machines for a long time (and it still works now).
I recently started dual-booting Ubuntu 10.10 on my otherwise Windows laptop, and I've gotten everything basically working how I like it, except that I can't get connected to that printer.
The Vista machine is at IP address 192.168.0.103, and the printer is shared as LaserJet. It's set up with workgroup MSHOME.
When I go to add a printer in Ubuntu, I click the Browse button under "SMB Printer," and I see the MSHOME workgroup, but when I try to expand it, there's nothing inside.
If I try to type in the address directly (smb://192.168.0.103/LaserJet), the Verify button tells me "Print Share Inaccessible, Connection timed out." Note that I can ping 192.168.0.103 fine. I can continue through the rest of the wizard, but I obviously can't print anything out after I finish the setup, since the connection is failing for some reason.
There is no username or password required to see the shared printer.
Any idea what could be going on here? I'm kind of at wit's end here, and I'd love to be able to ditch Windows--with the obvious exception of Starcraft II, of course
We have workgroup network in the home and the printer "hp laserjet p1005" connected at the server (OS : windows server 2003) and I am connected to the Internet by the server without problems. But when I want to print any file, it remains in (processing) and no print. It's picture for this problem:
I'm running Kubuntu 11.04 and LibreOffice Writer 3.3.2. I'm trying to print a #10 envelope on an HP LaserJet 5M printer. When I create the envelope and attempt to print it, LIbreOffice sets the paper size to #10 Envelope, as it should. I put the envelope into the manual feed tray and initiate the actual printing operation. The printer goes through the motions of processing the output -- and then goes back to the READY state without printing anything. I've tried using all possible Paper Tray settings and also using the CUPS drivers rather than the Foomatic drivers. None of that makes a difference. What does make a difference is setting the paper size to Letter, but then, of course, the information prints in the wrong place on the page.
Unfortunately my usb HP LaserJet 1005 printer stopped working since 16th august. It is running under CUPS 1.3.8, with foo2zjs driver (the only one that supports laserjet 1005). I'm not sure, but this is probably related to the updates I've done recently (I don't exactly remember when I did it, but I think it was before the 16th). Here's what I've done:
Code: # aptitude update # aptitude dist-upgrade
As this is a home box, I haven't done that for some months, so a lot of stuff has been updated. I'm afraid some CUPS library has been updated and is now bugged, because it always worked without any problem. My question is whether or not there are known bugs on last CUPS version with hp laserjet and if there's any solution to work it out. I already tried to reinstall the printer, reboot the box, plug it to other USB port, reboot the printer, set it as default printer, and many more things. Google search didn't turn up nothing useful. The problem is not on the printer because I plugged it to my windows pc and it worked like a charm, so I'm pretty sure some stupid configuration or bug is messing arround with my printer
I use a network printer (HP Laserjet 1300n). Since a few days ago I couldn't print anything, the error message is 'Unable to write print data:Broken pipe'. What could be wrong? I replaced the cartridge recently, but nothing else.
I have hp and samsung printers HP L3000, HP P1320,P2035,P2015 and Samsung ML750. Now when i like to print a landscape doc from libre office and i select landscape orientation but still the report comes in portrait format.even if i go to cups n change printing orientation from auto to landscape I still not get a landscape report.Another problem is that in windows I selected the row in excel to print then printed using fit to one page.But in suse I dont see that option
Having selected 'Landscape', when printing using 'File|Print' in KWrite, the text is presented in landscape but formatted to a size of approximately 105mm x 590mm (bottom half of a landscape page and stretched to twice the width, printing only the left hand side). I have a similar issue with some other programs too, but not Open Office.Having configured 'cupsd.conf' to log in debug mode it would seem that the problem I'm getting may be to do with applications that output in 'application/pdf' format, because in the CUPS log for Job 57 line 479 seems to indicate that KWrite has output a PDF file:
Code:[Job 57] File of type application/pdf queued by "root". Then at line 490 there's a line that seems to indicate no landscape, even though this was selected through the user interface of KWrite (and works in Open Office)!:Code:[Job 57] argv="document-name=4b69b8710002c media=A4 nolandscape job-uuid=urn:uuid:5c6fae2f-ad2f-3364-5f04-bb5500d1eabc" I would have attached the various 'log' and 'conf' files but I'm new to this and I just can't find a way to get attachments enabled for my login!I've spent hours on this, if anyone can give me any pointers I would be most grateful, however I am no Linux system administrator I'm afraid.Current system: openSUSE 11.2 x64, Kernel 184.108.40.206, CUPS 1.3.11, gutenprint 5.2.4, KWrite 4.3.1 release 6, KDE 220.127.116.11Old system (that worked with this printer): openSUSE 11.1 x32, gutenprint 5.2.2
Had the RC versions of 11.2 running on my laptop but now the release version is out X no longer installs properly, it gets so far through the installation but then goes to a black screen which is totally unresponsive. If I force a power-off/on it only comes up in text mode and I cannot get X to start automatically. I can get startx to work if I manually reconfigure sax2 using 0=radeon but no way can I get this to happen at startup. Seems a very retrograde situation and something that completely got past quality control.
Probably the end of my time with OpenSuse having been a user for over 5 years, at least Ubuntu installs straight in with no problems whatsoever - exactly what I would have expected from OpenSuse.
For some reason I don't understand SUSE tells me there are no network devices available. I've checked for any 'firmware' and 'kill' in both boot.msg and hardware information. I've got an ACER Aspire 8935G with WiFi Link 5100 (Intel). The only info I found that could point to the reason is:
There is one more thing that could be related: I've got some touch-buttons to the left of the keyboard that turn wifi and bluetooth on/of. The bluetooth one works, but nothing happens if I press the wifi one.
I also know that this hardware worked on fedora 11 and 12, so it's probably only a matter of settings/additional packages. If you respond, please keep in mind I can't use any internet connection-based commands, as the system doesn't accept the hardware responsible for cable connections either. I can download files if needed.
I'm trying to get my Dell Latitude work with wifi speed >54Mbit/s, and up to now without any success. The router is a Dlink DIR-635, it has 'n' enabled and working (got an apple laptop connecting at 130Mbit/s, can't test the actual throughput though, since it's the only high-speed device).
Here's the device data:
0c:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation WiFi Link 5100 Subsystem: Intel Corporation WiFi Link 5100 AGN Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 43 Memory at f1ffe000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=8K] Capabilities: [c8] Power Management version 3 Capabilities: [d0] MSI: Enable+ Count=1/1 Maskable- 64bit+
I'm running 11.4, added the compat-wireless recently to be able to run the newes firmware (iwlwifi-5000-5.ucode , firmware version 18.104.22.168 build 33692), but still all I get is 54Mbit/s. I'd like to know if ANYONE ever got the 802.11n speed on linux, and in particular with these intel cards.
I just did a dual boot with OpenSuSE 11.2 and Windows 7. They both work perfect but for some reason the wireless (intel wifi 5100 AGN) and my wired network card (Atheros AR8131 Gigabyte controller)do not work in opensuse. Now the problem is that I do not have a clue about linux and therefore I don't know how to fix the problem. I searched the forum and I tried these commands "sudo /sbin/ifdown eth0" and "sudo /sbin/ifup wlan0" and both says something like device not connected/present (can't remeber exactly).
I moved to Berlin recently and I got wireless internet through an access point. I'm supposed to use the laptop's built-in wireless netcard to access the internet. This usually works in windows (connection falls out from time to time), but I have yet to make it work in linux. I'm using OpenSuse 11.3 64-bit and the Knetwork manager. Most of the settings in the network manager are correct, but it keeps wanting to use system certificates for the server. By that I mean it keeps checking 'Use CA System certificates'.
So I can't choose the CA-certificate supplied by my internet provider. I keep removing the check-mark and pointing it to the 'hotzoneCA.der' certificate. I also got a 'personal' certificate, in lack of a better word. Its called 'jacob_collstrup.p12'. The Knetwork manager seems to accept the 'jacob_collstrup.p12' certificate, but not the other one.
I just put the certificates in a folder like this /jacob/home/hotzone/zertifikate/ I can see the network fine using the Knetwork manager, and the signal strength seems ok. Not too good, but it shouldn't be a problem. I might have messed up the system, since I first tried this guide, prior to experimenting with Knetwork Manager:
1. (had to run this one as su) Code: wpa_supplicant -w -i wlan0 -c /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf -Dndiswrapper -dd �t 2. (This was supposed to be put in a wpa_supplicant.conf file) Code: ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant ctrl_interface_group=0 opensc_engine_path=/usr/lib/opensc/engine_opensc.so pkcs11_engine_path=/usr/lib/opensc/engine_pkcs11.so pkcs11_module_path=/usr/lib/pkcs11/opensc-pkcs11.so
The funny thing is that it works fine in a Fedora installation, which has an older kernel and older drivers, on the same laptop. The fact that the indicator light doesn't come in when the physical switch is turned on suggests it's something to do with that switch.
I am using Opensuse 11.2 on my work machine and am generally quite happy with it. When I plugged the HP Laserjet 1020 into the USB port after installing Opensuse a few months ago, it recognized it immediately and installed the recommended driver. Everything worked fine and I could use it for quite a while.
Now, however, although I do not remember changing anything, the printer is causing trouble. After I couldn't print at all, I removed the driver and tried to install it again. Despite the printer correctly showing up with "lsusb", the printer configuration in YAST does not see any printers at all anymore. And, more strangely, when I plug in the printer cable first and the (USB-) mouse cable second, the mouse does not turn on anymore (no cursor movement, no light in the mouse). The same happens when I boot the computer with the printer cable in the USB port.
I have newly installed opensuse 11.4 x85_68 on my computer. Yast2 refuses to see my connected HP Laserjet 4l on parallel port, I can install a second network printer but neither hplip nor yast2 can start printer configuration. The printer is present in Yast2 hardware List under /dev/lp1
(due to a problem with the previous post title I'm forced to issue a new post).I'm helping a friend of mine to move to opensuse from windows. All gone fine except the HP laserjet M1120 MFP that it is recognised correctly by HPLIP but it doesn't print. Following the troubleshooting procedure I got the following messages:
Code: 'D [23/Dec/2010:17:34:24 +0100] [Job 3] STATE: +hplip.plugin-error', 'D [23/Dec/2010:17:34:24 +0100] cupsdMarkDirty(P-----)', 'D [23/Dec/2010:17:34:24 +0100] [Job 3] prnt/hpcups/HPCupsFilter.cpp 413: m_Job initialization failed with error = 48STATE: +connecting-to-device', code....
calling for an error of the hp-plugin "script?" due to compatibility with python3 (reference is made to a bug report in fedora url.
At the moment I have no access to the machine I need some advice, do you thing this could apply to opensuse too?
