OpenSUSE Network :: Can't Print To Windows Xp Printer?
Apr 10, 2011
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 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'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.
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?
I want to print from my linux box to my win7 pc that has a shared printer. I have cups installed and tried to add pritner using samba, but was unsuccesful, gave me an error when trying to add. The guide i followed is: Yet another Linux to Windows printing tip -- Debian Admin The printer model is a dell 2330d laser printer, it is not in cups, so i added the ppd file i got off the dell support site. I am aware that there is a native suse driver, but i want to print to the windows printer.If possible I would like to know how to do this via command line instead of the GUI.
Ok have setup my printer under suse 11.3 just fine and printing perfectly, and have added the printer to a windows 7 client, but had to get the disk to install the windows driver. Is there any way that i can put the windows driver on the linux machine so that when i go to a windows client and want to add the printer, i can just connect to the printer and the windows driver will be installed over the network like it does with windows servers?
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]..
The printer is connected to a networked XP machine that is accessible from Ubuntu. I have set up the printer as instructed in this help file... https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WindowsXPPrinter SAMBA sees the printer on the network , verifies the printer and the driver loads. Everything goes along just fine until "print test page" No go. The printer shows up in the "Printing -local host" window. Under "printer properties" the "Make and Model"are showing the correct device in the correct location. The "Printer State" shows "idle - /usr/lib/cups/filter/foomatic-rip failed" Is there something I might have missed in the set-up?
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!!!
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?
example 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.
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.
Yesterday I installed FC13.i636, Gnome 2.30.0, on my Dell Latitude D505 laptop. Fresh install from live CD, single partition. Installed all 400+ recommended updates last night. System is working *very* smoothly.I want to print (wireless connection) to my Canon MP160 printer, which is attached to my WinXP machine, and is set as a Shared printer in WinXP. I can print to it fine with my iBook.I used the System/Admin/Printing app to set up a networked printer, letting the app "find" the printer. Printer now shows in the app as:
I choose the appropriate driver and tried a test page. Test page job results in queue showing job "processing" but nothing comes from printer, even ten minutes later. Printer properties show:
My USB printer is connected to an OpenSUSE 11.2 desktop on a home network. I shared the printer with samba and can print from a Windows XP notebook connected to the network, but whenever I try to connect a Windows 7 machine, I always get the message that Windows cannot connect to the printer.
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.
I recently installed 10.04 and unable to print to local or network printer?
When I go to System Admin/Printing to add my printers, screen says I am not connected to localhost and I am unable to use Add printer. When I used version 9.10, I added a network + a local printer by this method but I'm not sure what I have done wrong this time around.
I'm trying to add my Samsung SCX4500W printer to my opensuse 11.2 machine running KDE.From Yast->Printer->Add printerI am able to set the printer up, however there is no driver for my specific network printer. Samsung does provide a linux driver but I have no idea what I'm doing when installing peripherals on linux basically
I have an old desktop that I'm trying to set up as a home backup/print server. Backup was trivial, but am having issues getting the printing to work. The printer is connected to the server running Ubuntu Server 9.10 (no gui). If I access the printer via http://hostname:631/printers/, I am able to print a test page, so I know the printer is working; however, I am having no luck from Windows. Windows can see the printer when browsed via hostname, but I am unable to connect. Windows says "Windows cannot connect to the printer" without indicating why.
From /etc/samba/smb.conf: [global] workgroup = WORKGROUP dns proxy = no security = user
I have a windows 2008 server that has 2 printers attached, both are shared in the same way with the same access rites. One printer I can print to without any issues, I get prompted for my domain username and password then the job is processed, the other I can't print to. When printing a test page cups just ques the job and I get errors in the logs :
E [08/Aug/2011:16:44:39 +1200] [Job 12] Session setup failed: NT_STATUS_LOGON_FAILURE E [08/Aug/2011:16:44:39 +1200] [Job 12] Session setup failed: NT_STATUS_LOGON_FAILURE E [08/Aug/2011:16:44:39 +1200] [Job 12] Tree connect failed (NT_STATUS_BAD_NETWORK_NAME)
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] ps5ui.dll pscript.hlp pscript.ntf pscript5.dll
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.
I have a laptop running Ubuntu 10.04 and my basement computer running Windows 7. I want to be able to access files on on both computers from either. I also want to be able to print from my laptop to the printer attached to the basement computer. I finally got printing working. Then I tackled the filesharing. I finally get filesharing working and now, I can't get printing working again, even though I've gone back to the version of smb.conf that I had when I was able to print. So here is what I've got.

When I look at my printer properties in Ubuntu I see the status: Idle - Unable to connect to CIFS host after (tried 3 times) Cups Error Log When I look at the Printer Error Log, I see: (partial) Printer log extract.txt I can ping the IP address of the windows box 192.168.0.5, but when I try to ping the name owner-pc it fails. This would lead me to beleive that the there is a name resolution problem.
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:
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.
Having made the transition from a certain widely used operating system to linux, suse 11.2, x64, successfully and pleasantly we are still left with a few problems.One of these is a few applications i have to use which run only in that old OS. ?To that end I have installed VirtualBox and got them to run with one glitch. I cannot print from VBox to my HP LaserJet 4000, lpt1 printer, which works fine in suse. Searching and posting on the Vbox forums turned up that lpt1 is not supported in the current vbox and that I need to set up a virtual network, set up the printer as a network printer and set it up as an lpd/lpr printer in Vbox WinXP. Have tried many different ways to do this without success, I think the problem is I do not know how to set up a network printer in Linux.
The virtual network is vboxnet0, which does show up in ifconfig, along with my eth0 net, and I can ping the windows guest, gateway and the host from either side host:suse/guest:winXP) respectively. Have tried numerous ways of setting up printer in YaST which works in suse but still does not work from WinXP guest. Have read the suse manual and several sources and searched forums with no results.Finally I am thinking I just don't know how to set up a network printer in linux. Using cups, kde, suse 11.2, don't know what else to tell. Samba is installed, although I am not using it to the best of my knowledge.
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:
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 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
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.
