Software :: Cups Dropping Print Jobs

Apr 30, 2011

I have a problem with cups dropping print jobs. The machine fedora 13 installation using cups 1.4.4-10

The dropped jobs happen only rarely happen and therefore is difficult to debug the problem since it doesn't happen 99% of the time. This morning (while in the shower) I wondered if the lost jobs are lost because they are timing out, perhaps because of slow input from a user. I can test this more later in the week..

The print jobs are initiated from within a COBOL program. COBOL opens the print file as output and at this stage a job appears in the print queue with a status in the print queue of "held".

The user types in various bits of information and when complete the program executes the final write to the output print file. The job is somehow released and then is physically printed by CUPS. I suspect that if the user is slow the "held" job times out and then the job is lost.

There are a number of timeout directives in cups.conf but I am unsure which might be appropriate in this case. Or perhaps there is some other timeout thing happening.

Software :: CUPS - Print Jobs Shows Completed, But Page Doesn't Print?

Dec 6, 2008

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.

Code:
# Show troubleshooting information in error_log.

Slackware :: CUPS Print Jobs Print 1st Page OK, But All Others Are Overwritten?

Feb 26, 2011

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.

CentOS 5 :: Cups Delay Between Jobs?

Nov 16, 2009

Since my last server upgrade, last Thursday, cups is having a strange behavior: I have 3 text-only printers, and an application that prints to them. The application, to print 5 lines, it sends 5 jobs to the printer. Before the upgrade, all the jobs where printed sequentially, without any delay. After the upgrade, cups makes a small delay (5s or more) between every one...Its very annoying for the users...

Ubuntu Installation :: Purge CUPS Jobs Older Than 1 Hour?

May 12, 2011

I've setup two printers through a system running Ubuntu server that are shared with 30-40 users on our school network.

If the printers run out of ink or paper, they stop printing. The lazier members of staff don't proceed to recharge the ink or paper so when somebody does, hours later, the old jobs start printing again which the teachers no longer need or want.

I'd like to automatically have my system purge print jobs older than 1 hour. I'm running CUPS and sharing the printers through SAMBA. How do I do this?

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Cups Loses Jobs - Doesn't Show Up At The Server

Feb 7, 2011

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.

Ubuntu Servers :: CUPS Very Long Delay Between Sending Jobs And Printing?

Feb 17, 2011

I've set up a cups printing server using ubuntu 10.04.1 LTS. The printer's a HP Laser Jet 1018 I can connect to it over vpn using openvpn from my netbook which is also running ubuntu 10.04.1. I can connect to the printer all right and test page prints without a problem. But if I try to print anything else, it take at least 5 minutes before the job is successfully send and printed out.

Also, on the client side, for example, the file size would like 500k, and when it finally prints out, the file size on the server side is less than 10k. The file is a black and white document, and from what I can tell, the printed page is not missing any information.

Fedora :: Sleep But Still Listen For Print Jobs?

Dec 3, 2010

So I have Fedora 14 installed on a laptop directly connected to my printer. I really never use the laptop except to send print jobs to it wirelessly. I was wondering if there was a way to make it suspend or sleep, or even idle everything down so it uses less power, but still listen for print jobs?

Ubuntu :: Print Jobs Stuck In Queue?

Mar 28, 2010

I have 2 printers plugged into a Windows XP PC (an Epson Stylus Photo RX580, and an HP Laserjet 1020) with full sharing on and everything, and is shared with other Windows PCs via the network I have set up. It has worked perfect. But today I added a PC running Ubuntu 9.10 and and can't figure out for the life of me what I am doing wrong. I installed both of the printers via the GUI in Administration, and both of them are detected and Ubuntu says they're working. But when I put something in the queue to print it stays there with the status "pending".

Debian Configuration :: Print Jobs Disappear From Queue?

Jun 16, 2010

I have no idea what's going on. I've had this machine running for over a year, and it's been great. A month or so ago, I realized that jobs weren't going to the printer. When i VNC'd in, I noticed that print jobs would show up in the queue as "Processing" briefly, then disappear.

lsusb:
Bus 005 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub

I've even reinstalled the OS (not just for this reason) to no avail. Printer is dete cted without issue, I just can't use it.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: 11.3 - Print Jobs Just Sits In Queue

Jul 26, 2010

I'm running openSUSe 11.3 on a laptop and the printer is connected to my desktop which is running Windows XP. I have the printer and several folders and drives shared. I can see the folders and drivers on my laptop but I cannot get the printer to actually print. It is an HP printer but I am not using HPLIP. I can send a print job to the queue and the printer resets itself like it's going to print but nothing else happens and the print job just sits in the queue until I hit cancel and restart then printer.

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:

mfc295cnlpr-1.1.2.i386-1.deb
mfc295cncupswrapper-1.1.2-2.i386.deb
brscan3-0.2.11-4.i386.deb
brscan-skey-0.2.1-3.i386.deb

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.

Ubuntu :: Cancel All Pending Print Jobs Automatically When Loging Out Of A Session

Dec 14, 2010

Sometimes I want to keep something in PDF files, so I print to the PDF "printer". However, if I inadvertetnly forget to check the PDF creation and rather take the real printer (which is usually only powered up, when I really want to print something), printing goes to the real printers queue and nothing happens ... until, possibly some sessions later, I want to print something (on paper rather than PDF) and power up the printer.

Then all inadvertent garbage comes first and chances are big, that the printer gets junk during power up or reconnecting the cable to the computer and then the whole thing is wasting even more paper, since escape-sequences sent to the printer get chopped and misunderstood by the printer.

In order to stop this alltogether, I am looking for a mehtod, to automatically flush the whole printing queue every time when I log out of my ubuntu session.

I know, there is a command lpq to tell which print jobs are pending, I also know the command cancel -Umyname -a, but this requests for my password. I want to kill all those incomplete or pending print jobs automatically.

And how do I hook such a command script into the logoff or shutdown sequence?

Applications :: Firefox 3+ Doesn't Queue Lpr Print Jobs Until After Quit On RHEL5/10.04?

Jun 8, 2010

We have a lpr server for printing (not CUPS for compatibility with complicated domain/systems). We configured our linux systems -- RHEL4, RHEL5, and Ubuntu 10.04 -- so that lpr is one of the gtk print possiblities by adding 'gtk-print-backends = "lpr,pdf,file"' to gtkrc. This works great for several gtk-enabled applications like Acrobat Reader (acroread).

However, Firefox 3+ (tested 3.6.3 & 3.0.19) doesn't actually queue any lpr jobs until after quitting the application.

Software :: CUPS Jobs Stay In "processing" After A Paper Jam?

Feb 11, 2010

I have a home Linux box with Mandriva 2007.1 and installed a Samsung ML-1210 I use it as a network printer. Sometimes the printer jams the paper and it won't print after it.

The situation is as follows: The paper gets jammed. I clear it and everything looks fine. When I want to print the print job stays in "processing" and the printer doesn't do anything. It doesn't matter if I send the job locally via VNC or from a remote machine with IPP or from a windows client with samba. The job is received, gets to the processing phase but nothing happens after that. It seems like if the printer wasn't connected. The only way I was able to solve this is to completely restart my Linux Box.

- Switching off/on the printer doesn't work.

- Plugging the USB cable in a different slot doesn't work either (I even replaced the USB cable)

- Restarting the CUPS and SAMBA server won't help

- Switching the printer offline/online in CUPS does nothing

- I tried to change "reprint after paper jam" and other settings, still doesn't work.

It looks like nothing helps, but after I restart the box, everything works again.

There's a line in the cups error log that is suspicious, but I don't know what to do with it:

SLPReg of "SAMSUNML1210" failed with status -20!

Debian :: CUPS Failed To Print File In 7.8

Nov 10, 2015

I have installed cups(1.5.3) in my Beagleboard black based custom hardware running on Debian 7.8 using 'apt-get install' command. I am trying to print to HP deskjet 1112 usb printer from system line but nothing is getting printed and the output of 'lpstat -t' shows the error : "/usr/lib/cups/filter/hpcups failed "

The error_log output is :

I [10/Nov/2015:09:44:51 +0000] Saving job.cache...
I [10/Nov/2015:09:44:52 +0000] Listening to [v1.::1]:631 (IPv6)

I [10/Nov/2015:09:44:52 +0000] Listening to /var/run/cups/cups.sock (Domain)

[code]....

Please find the response from CUPS administrators below:

As far as I see this has nothing to do with CUPS.As far as I see the first error message comes from Ghostscript: "Unable to open the initial device, quitting" (this is in Ghostscript's gs_init.ps file).Therefore Ghostscript does not produce any output which lets then the filter from HP's HPLIP driver software error out with "cupsRasterOpen failed" and finally the HP backend errors out with "ERROR: null print job".Neither Ghostscript nor HP's HPLIP driver software belong to CUPS so that the issue does not belong to CUPS (according to my analysis).

I guess that somehow the "Ghostscript command line" is not correct or does not work as it should.Usually this is alos no bug in Ghostscript but "some where else" where the Ghostscript command line with all its parameters is created.

Ubuntu :: CUPS Bug: A4 Doesn't Print Correctly?

Jan 26, 2010

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.
