OpenSUSE Hardware :: Printer - HP LaserJet 1020 - Can't Print At All
Sep 17, 2010
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 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 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 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.
The last time I got involved with printers and fonts, printers had tractors and ribbons and the only codes in use were ascii and ebcdic. So even if I could remember it would be out of date. I've written a C program that writes a text file. I want to print it. I run it through expand and send it to lp, but it comes out in an undesirable primitive font.
Once upon a time, one sent a string of commands to the printer telling it what font to use and what size, etc. I dont think this is done anymore, and if it is I dont remember how to do it. I assume programs embed in their output instructions in some common format which tell this stuff to the printer - in my case a HP1020. I've been looking on the search engines but I haven't found the magic words to find what I want. how to get my output formatted. If it involves some escape sequences in the file, maybe a pointer to a description of which does what?
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
Using openSUSE 11.4 and winXP pro sp3I am a complete noob to linux.I went into YAST2 and added a printer--none were found. I used the connection wizard and selected Print Via Print Server Machine>>Windows or Samba.i entered the winxp info
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.
My wife has a canon MP470 printer and running ubuntu 10.10. I am able to print black and white, but unable to print photos. 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....?
I am running F15 Beta i686 (Gnome3) Desktop on a dual-core, 4 Mb DDR2 system. I already installed hplip and hpijs drivers and connected HP LaserJet 5MP printer to the parallel port of my PC. Set up was by running "system-config-printer", adding device URI=parallel:/dev/lp0, and selecting approriate driver (CUPS+Gutenprint (en) for the printer. However, when I chose to print a test page, nothing came out and the printer window says the printer is not connected. This is even though I can print from Fedora14 installed on the same PC.
how to install my hp laserjet 1010 printer on red hat el5.when i connect my printer, a new window pops up detecting a new hardware but my printer's name or the driver is not listed. i have the printer's driver cd which is for windows.
I have Canon MF4150 printer. I have downloaded Linux Printer Driver (UFR II) Ver.2.10E from canon asia site. Adding the printer and printing work fine, except that after one printing, the printer stops working. There is no error message./var/log/cups/access_log shows
i recently installed fedora 14 xfce and i have a printer laserjet p1007 hp connected. the printer gets detected but there is an error while installation (i.e when i run hp-setup) it gives an error that some binary drivers missing. i refreshed the package list also. but still the driver does not get installed..
yesterday I upgrade my opensuse 11.2 to 11.3 with zypper dup. Today I try to print something but printer doesn't react for page nor test page. On 11.2 it works perfectly. I have samsung ml 1640 connected directly to PC via usb.
output from cups: Description:OpenBlackBox v mojom rume Location:Moj rum Driver:Samsung ML-1640 Series (grayscale, 2-sided printing) Connection:usb://Samsung/ML-1640%20Series Defaults:job-sheets=none, none media=iso_a4_210x297mm sides=one-sided
I've got 11.3 Gnome on my lenovo desktop and I'm trying to connect an Epson Workforce 610 via a wired network. I installed the driver from AVASYS and Linux Standard Base in accordance with instructions. The printer is found on the network but I still can't print.
i used ubuntu maybe for a year but i dislike unity and i installed gnome 3 via ppa but it wasn't so stable.now i installed fedora on my netbook and really like!Gnome 3 is very stable but i have a problem with my printer.Fedora notices it plugged in my printer HP Laserjet p1005 but it doesn't find any drivers.
I am running Fedora 15 but about 1 week ago my Hp laserjet 1220 all-in-one printer stopped functioning. The OS recognizes the HP printer, but I cannot print any print job whatsoever. I have looked through the faq section and found no resolution for my conflict or problem. I have used Fedora on this system since Fedora 8.
Our one remaining problem seems to be printing. She has an HP OfficeJet 6500 USB printer. We have the computer conntected. Strangely, when I boot from the CD the printer shows up as installed even though I did nothing to install it. After having submitted a print job it shows the printer status as "idle" and the print queue is empty. I tried deleting that printer and re-installing. The installation went as one would expect. However the results are the same. I'm beginning to think that somehow the problem is related to the fact that we are operating from the live CD. getting this thing to print from the live CD.
