I have an ubuntu server (9.04) that needs to share a printer (a Brother 2070N on USB). To configure cups, I had to modify cups.conf quite a bit to let me access the printer management pages, but I did get it working. I can print using the lpr command, as well as print test pages using the management interface's "Print Test Page" button from any computer on my network. However, I cannot actually set up Ubuntu, Fedora, Vista, or OSX to see the network printer, and it's driving me insane.Brother from any computer on the network I can see the specific printer management page, but no computer can actually print to the printer (other than using the "print test page" button)
I just recently bought a WinStar USB LPR Network Print Server so that I could connect my printer to my network so all the machines on my network could print, and everything would be OS independent. The problem I'm having is that I can't get CUPS to connect to the printer. It either never prints anything, saying that the printer is not connected, or saying that LPR is spooling the job, but it never completes. I've been configuring it as a network printer in CUPS, and trying all the different configuration options to no avail. The print server is located on http://192.168.1.103 and is pingable. The print server I have is this one:
WinStars Networking USB LPR Print Server
What is the correct way to set up a print server like this so I can print to it?
I initially had a problem accessing the CUPS interface (see my other post) and got that resolved by adding the user "cupsys". Now, everything "looks" ok, and when I print a test page, it shows it as completed (in CUPS). However, the page never prints. The printer is a Canon MP600 (using the canonmp600en.ppd file to configure it). Here's the output of my conf file.

I am demo'ing Kubuntu 9.04 workstation to a customer. He has a CentOS 5.3 server (my doing). On it is our CUPS Network file server. Everyone (65 of them) print to our network printer through it using LPR/LPD (and sometimes Samba).
Problem: when Kubuntu's Print Configuration Tool went looking for printers, it found every network printer's IP address, but missed my CUPS printer server. What did I do wrong on one or both ends (I have control over both).
my printer has a known CUPS bug; A4 is printed as letter size; i.e. printing only appears on the bottom half of the page. I downloaded a ppd file at [URL] but it improved nothing. Also installed the bug's patch (sorry I don't have the bug's number) and followed the instructions; zero results. Upgraded Ubuntu 9.04's CUPS-related repositories to 9.10 but no improvement. Every test page still comes out with just the top third sitting at the bottom.
I configured cups and I managed to print successfully with generic text only but my problem is that the printout always comes out as 80 columns. anything more than 80 colums wraps on the next page. I tried changing the pagesize at the textonly.ppd but it didn't work.my textonly.ppd is
I have a printer configured on my Ubuntu server using CUPS amd made it available to the local network. The printer is recognized on my other Ubuntu machine without any problems. But on my Suse laptop, the printer is not recognized. Using the YaST printer Configuations, I choose the option "Recieve Printer Information from Remote CUPS servers. But no printer is found.But... when I choose Do All Yout Printing Directly via One Remote CUPS server and enter the correct IP address (192.168.1.100), the printer is found andI am sure the printer info is broadcasted because it shows up on my second Ubuntu PC. But why is it not recognized by default on my Suse machine
I just installed CentOS 5.3 on Compaq desktop PC with HP laser jet 2100 attached to parallel port. The PC is connected to LAN with 2 other PCs running Fedora. I configured the HP printer as a shared CUPS printer and I was able to detect the printer from the other PCs running Fedora but I can't print test page from the other PCs.
P.S. I opened up port 513 and 631 for both UDP and TCP on print server PC and cups-lpd service is running on it.
I'm trying to set up a cups print server on 10.10 server. When I run
Code: sudo apt-get install cupsys
i get this error
Code: E: Unable to locate package cupsys
I can find and install all kinds of other stuff and this is a fresh install.
Here's my /etc/apt/sources.list
Code: #deb cdrom:[Ubuntu-Server 10.10 _Maverick Meerkat_ - Release i386 (20101007)]/ maverick main restricted # See http://help.ubuntu.com/community/UpgradeNotes for how to upgrade to # newer versions of the distribution.
Since last few weeks i am struggling to setup printer connected to print server.
Here is the setup that i have:
I have Red Hat Linux machine from which i want to issue print jobs.
I have Windows Print Server having multiple printers connected to it.
I am able to print jobs from Windows client to any of these printers. But i am not able to print from Red Hat Linux. (i have verified that i can print using smbclient utility, but based on my reading, CUPS API could be used from application to discover, print and issue print jobs.)
I am not able to get the correct configuration for setting up CUPS client.
My setup is like this: i have a small office network and i bought yesterday a new multifunctional printer Samsung SCX-4521F. It is shared with samba and connected to the server with USB. In the network everyhing works well, users can log on to the domain, print from windows to the new shared Samsung printer and i even managed to enable network scannin. But when i try to print from MS DOS i wont get a single page. We have an accounting program in dos. All the other computers are XP Pro SP3. My server is running for 2 weeks the newest CentOS with all updates. I'v maped the network printer in windows witht the command "net use LPT1 \ServerSCX-4521F. I get a message that maping was completed succesfully. If i start a print job nothing happens. "Printing" or "warming up" flashes several times on the printer and thats it.
CUPS error log: I [02/Apr/2009:00:03:45 +0300] Adding start banner page "none" to job 125. I [02/Apr/2009:00:03:45 +0300] Adding end banner page "none" to job 125.
Not sure when CUPS started acting up. I have the latest 13.1 current software installed.The first page to print is always OK, but all succeeding pages are overwritten. The second page shows the first page on top of it, and the third shows the preceding pages on top of it - and so on. Has anyone else seen this problem?I guess the printer buffer is not getting flushed correctly. If my configurations were trashed in some way, I don't know where to look for a fix.
I have a HP P1005, which is connected to my desktop computer. I have it configured using hp-setup and set it to share across the network. However no matter what I do on an other computer connected to the network I'm unable to detect the printer. With OS 11.2 it all worked smoothly and practically out of the box. Only need was to add CUPS as an allowed service. This option is taken out, apparently it posed a security risk beats me if you only allowed local traffic. In order to open up the port I added in the internal and external zone the following: code...
Still the printer is not detected. If I turn the firewall off on both machines, no printer. If I try to ping it from the host machine it asks whether or not I enabled the firewall (which is turned off!!).
cupsd is running on the server printer. Localhost:631 is correctly configured and printing from my desktop works fine.
I'm trying to setup a print server in Fedora 13. I've made it using CUPS and when I send something to print from a Windows PC it goes ok. My main concern is to know where is the spool file stored when a file is sent to print. I've seen in many forums that it is stored in /var/spools/cups. What I only see here is a file name c000XXX with some information about the printing job. I'm using hold print for this printer and before printing out anything I can't find the spool. I've tried cups-pdf and it stores a pdf file in a route but this is not enough for me. I need to know where the spool data is stored in order to know from who is the job being send.
I have a 11.3 machine as a print server sharing out a printer Then I have two clients using that printer. One 11.3 and one 11.4 6 of 6. When I print from LibreOffice on either machines every other print job disappears. I'm a bit puzzled ! It's not random it's exactly every other that doesn't show up at the server. It's not in the server job log.
I've been at this mess pardon my french for a few hours and i'm still going nowhere, original thread posted over at archlinux forums:Since my printer isn't visible on my server (works just fine on my client) I tried to manually add various URI (tried em all) and I went from "printer location not found, waiting for jobs, to printer isnt running".
In my opinion it should be working but it's not, i've read the linux printer database/various linux forums/#cups on freenode (idled for 2 days no response)/gentoo wiki/forums and the old tool "google" but most of the "hacks" I tried didn't work.There's a lot of google links with issues similars to my own and alas they are all unresolved, is this a typical problem with unix/CUPS over servers/network?Why is it so difficult for CUPS to detect my printer over my server?
Is it possible to use CUPs to share an already networked printer using IPP? The printer itself uses IPP.I know at first look this may seem like a silly thing to do, however I have a special case to set up a "print proxy server" due to security compliance reasons
I'm trying to setup a cups printing server, but I want the default admin to not be root. Google has given me a couple hints and the cups administration page a little further but I'm now stuck at the end.What I want is a user called admin who belongs to the group printadmin as cups server administrator.What I have done1) I have created a local user called admin user yast user interface , and a group called printadmin. Added admin to the group printadmin2) I changed the line in /etc/cups/cupsd.conf.SystemGroup sys roottoSystemGroup printadmin 3) Changed all instances of of Authtype from Basic to Digest (Allows me to have a file called passwd.md5 in /etc/cups/ with the name of the allowed cups admins inside)4) Ran the following command to create and add admin.Code:lppasswd -a -g printadmin dmin This is what I receive after running the commandlppasswd -a -g printadmin administratorEnter password:Enter password again:lppasswd: Die Kennwortdatei wird verwendet!
I am hard time printing to one particular Canon IR8500 printer Red hat.WE are using CUPS to manager around 30 printers.when I try to start the printer from CUPS, it comes back immediately to Printer State: Stopped, accepting jobs..After I delete it and redefine it, the status says Idle, but as soon as I submit a job, the status change to 'Stopped'.
I cant print in firefox 3.6 by cups. Whe i go to file print i see the printers. The file is send to the wright printer. Printer crasch. I look on internet en found a solution.

When i klik print the page wil print but only to the defualt printer. Is there a solution the fix this error. Ore how can i give the commando lpr -p printername. I try this on command line I make 2 printqueue's to the same printer and when i give echo "text" | lpr -p printername it works How can i change the gtkr file to have the posibility to slect the printers
When I try to print something there is only some led blinks on printer and nothing is print. I am using drivers from brother(cupswrapper). I am using CUPS 1.3.11. I didn't have any problems on my previous installation of slackware(but I don't know which driver I've used).
I've been running Slackware 13.37 since RC1 (so I'm a relatively new Slacker!). I set up CUPS to start as a default service during my install process. I print once in a while, but my computer is not a print-server per se. Do I have to have it auto-started in order to just be able to print on-demand (like, from LibreOffice or Okular)?
