Ubuntu :: Print To LaserJet Shared By Vista Machine?

Nov 9, 2010

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, 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://, the Verify button tells me "Print Share Inaccessible, Connection timed out." Note that I can ping 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

Hardware :: Can't Print Fedora To A Vista Shared HP Printer

Mar 25, 2010

my 64 bit XP/fedora 12 box prints fine to a shared printer when I am in XP. The HP color lasterjet CP1215 printer is hosted by a 32 bit vista machine. I can located the printer on the network from Fedora 12 using the add a pinter utility, but I cannot print. I get no error message on the linux machine, but the "submitted " dialog box never goes away (not sure if it is supposed to go away). On the vista machine in the printers dialog box it says "remote downlevel document" in the document name section and "0kb" in the size section, then goes away. the printer does not make any noise.

Debian :: Hp Laserjet 1020 Doesn't Print

Feb 2, 2010

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.

Hardware :: Hp P1102w Laserjet Does Not Print Through Suse 11.2

Jul 2, 2010

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.

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.

Note that:

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:

General :: Cannot Print Envelopes With LibreOffice Writer - HP LaserJet 5M

Jun 21, 2011

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.

Hardware :: HP LaserJet 1005 Doesn't Print Anymore

Aug 18, 2010

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:

# 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

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Cannot Print 11x17 Landscape On HP Laserjet 5100

Mar 5, 2010

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.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Unable To Print To A HP Laserjet P 1007 Network Printer

Jul 9, 2010

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.

Ubuntu :: Numbers To Put In Linux Machine Can Connect / Print To Windows Machine?

Apr 16, 2011

I remember it being really easy to add a printer attached to another computer using Ubuntu, but I don't remember exactly what made it so easy. All I know is that now that I have switched to Kubuntu the process has become much harder because now I have to find out some special locations, numbers etc. for it to connect to the printer. It's connected to a Windows XP machine on the other side of the house.
It says alot about 'contacting the network administrator' if I am unsure about what to put in. But I am more or less the network administrator. how to find out what numbers to put in so that my Linux machine can connect and print to the Windows machine? Or maybe someone knows a few commands to share? I go to Applications > Settings > System settings, Printer configuration, New Printer, New Network printer, and then there are a few options but I don't know which one to choose. Windows Printer via Samba, I guess? Then in the box that says smb://[enter stuff here] I need to put in info but I don't know how to find that info.

Ubuntu :: Print From Vista Partition But Not From 11.04?

Jul 18, 2011

Bottom line: I was able to print to a network printer before. Now I can't. I can print from my Vista partition, but not from 11.04.

Level of Linux experience: Like listening to a conversation between a Brit and an American.


(1) HardwareDual boot on Dell Inspiron 530 (11.04 and Vista)iomega print server GPSU21hp Office Jet 5610 All-in-One(2) Test page: pdf file from a usb drive; other test pages produce same results

Installation of network printer:

I followed what I believe to be standard procedure: Using the Unity interface, I opened up the Printing application. I then clicked "Add". Then "Network Printer", then "Find Network Printer". I typed in the Host (; static assignment made while in Vista via iomega's software). Then it searches. It fills in its own blanks thus: Under the heading "Devices" > "Network Printer" it says, "JetDirect ( (". In the panel on the right it says, "Host:", then, "Queue: ipp". I click "Verify..." and an error message pops up that says, "Inaccessible The print share is not accessible"

If I proceed forward, I can install drivers, but nothing will ever print. Following procedure, I click to print a test page. The job is sent to the queue and then I get this Printer State message: "Stopped - Destination printer does not exist!"

Server :: Shared Printer Does Not Print

Jun 26, 2009

A few months ago a client had me build a small file server running OpenSuse for them. They also had me install an HP Designjet 650C on the server and share it on the network for 2 desktops to print to. All went well and there have been zero problems. They use a few specialty apps that don't have good enough FOSS counterparts, so I couldn't talk them into switching the desktops to Linux, although they were very interested in it. One of the desktops runs Vista and has an XP Pro VM on it (they are considering a Linux VM to go with it so they can dip their toes in the water). There was a locally installed HP OfficeJet 5610 on the machine, but printing from the XP VM was a hassle because they had to tell virtualbox to pass the usb interface to the VM, effectively disabling it in Vista. Then to print in Vista again they had to release the interface back to the host OS. The other desktop (running XP) was also unable to print to it. They asked me to install the 5610 on the server and share it like I did the 650C.

Installing it on the server was easy. I just plugged it in and checked to make sure everything was neat and tidy in YaST. It printed flawlessly. I configured the share identically to the way I shared the 650C. I browsed the network from Vista, found the printer, and installed it using Vista's native driver. Then I sent a print to it from Vista and nothing happened. Vista is very slow to communicate with the printer compared to the 650C, but it will eventually report that the print job was successful. The printer never receives the print, though. Where are the print jobs going? The VM and other desktop are as big of a problem. XP does not natively support the 5610, so I have to download a driver from HP's site. The driver uses a stupid binary installer that will not allow the driver to be manually installed. Running the installer works, but the driver will not install until it sees the printer in a usb port. That won't work because we are connecting to it over a network path. Where can I find a driver that can be manually installed?

Networking :: Vista Printer Will Not Print From Network

Sep 8, 2009

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.

Ubuntu :: Samba 9.10 - Cannot Print Or Browse To Shared Drives From IMac

Fedora :: Print To A Windows Shared Printer?

Oct 21, 2010

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:

Printer state: Idle - /usr/lib/cups/backend/lpd failed

How do I fix the "failed" problem?

Networking :: Using Samba For Connecting To Vista Shared Printer

May 24, 2009

I'm trying to set up a Samba printer in Debian linux. The printer is being shared by a computer running windows vista. Some of the information I've got in the process. Sharing seems to be working, the printer seems to be detected and authenticating (I've tried invalid values and the utility I'm using to set things up says it cannot verify when I use invalid values, but with things as they are it claims everything checks out).

When I go into CUPS it says it detects the printer and everything is working. However, printing a test page causes the job to be immediately complete and nothing happens. It seems that the job is getting lost somewhere in the process. Could it be a firewall issue? I feel like the right ports must be unblocked since I can query the computer and verify the printer, etc. I have a laptop with vista which I installed a printer on and was able to print to that computer just fine. So it doesn't seem to be a Vista thing.

Ubuntu Networking :: 10.04 - How To Print From Guest Win 95 Machine

Aug 1, 2010

My knowledge of networks is very limited. I have googled and googled how to print to cups from Windows. I have Ubuntu 10.04 installed and have a win 95 installed as a guest machine in Virtualbox. I have found hundreds of articles similar to this: [URL]. Every article talks about cups print server's ip address, which always seems to begin with 192.168. I'm not sure I have understood what the print server IP address is. Is it the same as the IP address I get every time I start my computer? In that case it would be problematic since it's a new address every time. If it's not the same, how can I find out the ip address of the cups.
