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:
my ERP is sending multiple xml files to my queue and printing daemon reads each files and send it to windows printer (queue) where another software that uses each file and prints one document at a time.I would like to control first part when ERP send XML file I would like printing daemon to send files to windows queue in order the files came in from ERP. Currently it send it in random order. (i think it's based on how fast it can process, size of file..ect)
We are running RHEL 5.1 on the 18.104.22.168 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?
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.
I just installed a Brothers HL2170W printer on my desktop which is running Ubuntu 1004 I had no problem with the install and it is working. The problem is when I send a page to print it takes 5 minutes before it prints. Does anyone know if this is normal or if there is a fix. I have the printer connected with a USB cable.
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. LogLevel debug
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.
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 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 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.
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'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!!!
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 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.
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".
I have an HP deskjet f4580 and I downloaded hplip and the printer prints when its plugged into the usb but not wirelessly. And I noticed an hp setup adhoc on my network connections but I couldnt get on it. I'm nearly certain its something I am missing just don't know what..? and I have Ubuntu 11.04
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?
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.
In Ubuntu 10.10, I have my printer, an Epson D120, shared. I can print from the computer itself, but other computers cannot print to it. Both Ubuntu and Windows machines have the printer successfully installed. They can access it, I can access CUPS from all these machines and the the job queue even reports the jobs sent from these computers. But the page count is unknown and nothing is printed, although it says the job is completed.
I'm quite desperate to get this to work. It would suck if I need to go back to Windows just because some minor thing goes wrong. I really don't understand why local prints are OK, but prints from the network are not working.

I have always been able to print to this from Ubuntu by adding a network printer through the "Windows Printer via Samba" gui.Now, in Natty, I can set up the printer no problem but all jobs fail. In the printer properties gui I can see this text briefly: "Processing - unable to connect to cifs host".The errors in /var/log/cups/error_log are:

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 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.

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.
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.
