Ubuntu :: Printing Applet (system-config-printer) Won't Start?

Apr 23, 2011

Trying to add printers to a new install, and system-config-printer doesn't start. CUPS is working, and I am able to add and manage printers using http://localhost:631, but I would prefer to use the applet.

lee@tycho:~$ system-config-printer
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/share/system-config-printer/system-config-printer.py", line 104, in <module>


Similar problems (possibly different causes) include [URL], from only three weeks ago, but no responses, and this one [URL], which I don't think is the issue because I don't seem to have an "extra" python install at /usr/local/bin/python.

Fedora Networking :: System-config-printer Bad Printer Entry?

Dec 26, 2009

I have a problem with a bad entry in my system-config-printer on my notebook computer which I think is interfering with my ability to print. I run fedora 10 on several systems in my house. On one desktop, I have a printer hosted which I think I have successfully setup for wireless network sharing (an HP895) using IPP.My problem seems to be a bad entry in my system-config-printer on my notebook computer which seems to stall when I try to print from applications (Firefox for example.) on the notebook. If I open up "Printing", I have 3 printers listed... one of them is for when the printer is attached directly to the notebook, one of them is the working printer description "printer" and the 3d is the bad entry. If I click on the bad entry to try to delete it, I don't have that option, but If I try to look at the "properties" for that entry, system-config-printer stalls (as do other applications when the printing dialog box starts up, and I have to force them to shut down.)

I will attach some screenshots and a copy of my /etc/cups/printers.conf file.How do I get rid of this "bad entry" in the system-config-printers GUI ? It doesn't seem to exist in the printers.conf file.

General :: Printer Setup - How To Specify Printing To Start With Last Page

Feb 14, 2010

After some effort, finaly managed to get my Canon PIXMAiP4200 printer connected as a network printer. (I connect it through the USB printer port on a DLink DI-524UP router) Everything seems ok so far, except that I cannot find any means of specifying that printing should start from the last page.

General :: Set Printer Options When Printing From System To Windows?

Jun 17, 2011

We want to print PDFs from a Linux server to a HP LaserJet 1320 PCL 6 which is attached to a Windows print server.

The command we use is
lp -d LaserJet sicl_rcpdebtnt_5.pdf

Problem is, the printout comes with the top 10% of the page not printed. i.e. the printing starts from about 10% of the PDF. The header and top information is not printed.

We tried the scaling option:
lp -o scaling=75 -d LaserJet sicl_rcpdebtnt_5.pdf

But that also has no effect. Only the characters become smaller but still the same problem is there.

What can we do to print the entire PDF in ONE page. When we open the PDF in Windows and print it we have to say Fit to printer margins for the printer's page scaling property.

How to set this in command line Linux?

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Move Indicator Session Applet To The Right Of The System Date/clock Applet

May 6, 2010

I thought I was removing the chat status piece of the indicator applet (I know what it is now, didn't then), but I accidentally removed the whole thing. Now when I figured out how to put it back on the panel, I can't get it back to where it was (which was to the RIGHT of the system date/time applet). How can I do this as well as move the indicator applet that has the volume control in it?

Ubuntu :: Printing To Cups-PDF From Windows Config?

Aug 1, 2010

I installed cups_pdf and I am able to print pdf files locally but not Windows.

When I connect to the PDF printer in Windows it ask for a driver so I point it to the generic Microsoft one. I also tried some hp ones as well. When I print I don't get any errors or anything like that. The file appears in the PDF printer queue and disappears but doesn't make it to my computer. I have tried using instructions from various Internet sites but the information is vague, wants me to edit lines that don't exist in cupsd.conf, and/or adds lines that breaks the back-end scheduler to the PDF printer. Every once in a while they tell me to use a raw driver for Windows but what does that mean.

So right now Windows can see and interact with my PDF printer but the file never gets made on the Linux machine. I have reinstalled the cups-pdf, created a pdf printer, and windows can see and connect to it but wants a driver. I am using Ubuntu 10.04 and Windows 7 and everything is up to date. What do I need to do?

Ubuntu :: Stop A Printer From Printing?

Jul 2, 2010

How do I stop a printer from printing? Here's what happened- I started to print some PDF stuff and then changed my mind. The printing job hadn't finished so I just clicked on the printer icon and selected QUIT. Well, of course that didn't work so I just turned the printer off......same result- when I turn the printer back on it keeps on printing the same stuff. How do I stop the printer from continuing and delete all print jobs?

Ubuntu :: Karmic 9.10 And Printing To XP Shared Printer?

Feb 17, 2010

I have a brand new Canon MF4350d printer/copier/fax/scanner installed and shared on XP that I can't get working on Ubuntu!

XP prints test pages fine. Ubuntu sees the XP shared printer, it sends print jobs, and the XP machine even receives the print jobs (I can see them "spooling" in the XP print manager) but then nothing happens. The job leaves Ubuntu showing 150k but then shows 50 bytes when received in XP before disappearing from the queue.

How I got to where I am...

There was no native driver in Ubuntu for the printer, so I downloaded Canon linux drivers source and compiled (including make install) based on some other threads I've found such as this one.

Compiling left me with PPD files that seem to be specific to the MF4350, although their names show MF4350z not MF4350d. I'm not sure why there were three different files with slightly different names (CNCUPSMF4350ZJ.ppd, CNCUPSMF4350ZK.ppd, and CNCUPSMF4350ZS.ppd).

I added the printer manually using the Ubuntu printer browser setup (Samba) and selected the .PPD files manually. I've tried all three different .PPD files to no avail.

I've toggled bi-directional comm. and tried different print drivers on XP. Nothing's worked yet.

Ubuntu :: Canon MX340 Printer Not Printing?

Feb 4, 2011

Been using ubnutu gnome for a loooong time and my printer (Canon MX340) has been running just fine, configuration and usage.

I now switch to kde. configure my printer the same way i would under gnome and as soon as i send a job, it processes for about 3 seconds and just marks "stopped" under status. nothing goes through anymore!!

i've updated from 4.5 to 4.6 with backports and nothing is happening on there either.

im running maverick amd64 and using the i386 drivers (with dpkg -i --force-all) which are still recognized even under kde.

p.s.: the printer normally runs as wireless standalone (no samba/cups involvment whatsoever)

Ubuntu :: HP Printer Printing Black Pages?

Apr 24, 2011

Thought I'd post this as I couldn't find much about it online. I have an HP3745 and am running Ubuntu 10.04. For some reason I couldn't get anything from the black ink cartridge in test mode or for real. The printer would go through the motions but would return a blank page. Turns out it was because my COLOUR ink cartridge was empty!! Solution was simply to select print in grayscale. Also I find with this particular printer HPCUPS works better than HPLIP.

Ubuntu :: Printing With Canon MX330 Printer?

The printer is physically connected to a Desktop PC running Windows Vista (64-bit).I've tried installing the printer though CUPS to no avail. I tried the iP4600, iP3600 and iP2600 drivers and none of them have worked for me. I've even tried the Gutenprint PIXMA IP4600 drivers.

Ubuntu :: Windows Shared Printer Stalls When Printing?

Jun 30, 2010

I am currently running Lucid on my system and can't seem to get my printer on a Windows XP computer to print documents sent from my Ubuntu computer. I can see the Windows XP computer in Nautilus under Network and can even access the shared files on the Windows computer with no problem. I have been able to install the Windows shared printer on my Ubuntu computer using System>Administration>Printing>Add>Network Printer>"Windows Printer via Samba" without any error messages. The problem is that whenever I send a printing job to the shared printer, the printer acts like it is going to start printing then automatically stops just right before the paper is going to be fed. I have memorized the noises my printer makes right before the paper gets fed. That is how I know it stalls right before the paper is about to be fed.

When I check the print queue on my Windows computer, its status is "printing", but it never does. I have tried this with two different HP printers (Deskjet 3940 & PSC 1410), and it is the exact same problem on both.

Ubuntu Networking :: Printing To Win7 Shared Printer?

Sep 5, 2010

I apologize if I'm a little wordy. I'll give the problem, then a detailed list of my setup (to help troubleshoot). Problem: I can't print from Ubuntu 10.4 on my Win7 shared printer. I also can't connect to the Win7 computer sharing the printer (probably a related problem).

Error Message:

1.) I click on Places, Network, Windows Network. I get an error that says "Unable to mount location, Failed to retrieve share list from server."

2.) I click on System, Administration, Printing, Add, Printer, Network Printer, Windows Printer via SAMBA, Browse..., and I get this error "No Print Shares, There were no print shares found. Please check that the Samba service is marked as trusted in your firewall configuration. To do this select System->Administration->Firewall from the main menu."

Network Configuration: I have a wireless/wired network (using a router) where the Ubuntu machine connects wirelessly and the Win7 machine connects wired. The Win7 machine is on a Win7 homegroup and custom named "workgroup". There is a username/password to log into the Win7 Machine. My other Win7 laptop connects just fine to the Win7 desktop's shared printer (and network drives). I know it isn't a issue of it not working (at least with other Win7 machines)

Problem: I'm assuming there is probably a setting in Win7 that needs adjusting (although I've looked at about everything I can find). I also don't know much about Ubuntu so it could very well be something I need to setup in Ubuntu. I checked already to make sure that SAMBA and the smbfs plugin is installed.

Ubuntu :: Win7 Not Printing To Network Printer But Vista Will?

Jan 9, 2011

I have a HP c4100 series printer connected to my Ubuntu computer. This computer prints just fine. I also have a Windows Vista computer that's connected to the Ubuntu HP via CUPS (by installing network printer with path of http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:631/printers/printername). This computer also prints just fine. My problem is I just got a new Windows 7 laptop, and connected it to the HP via CUPS the same way as the Vista machine. It installed fine. However the Win7 Laptop will not print. When I try to print, it acts like it is going to print, but never gives an error and the file never makes it into the printer queue (on either the win7 or ubuntu machines, i have tried printing with both queues open to see what happens).

Things I have already changed:
On the Ubuntu machine:Changed all the printer settings on printer to allow any and all connections including printing from the internet.
Edited the /etc/samba/smb.conf to allow CUPS printing and allow guest access
On the Win7 machine:Fixed my LAN security settings (disabled require 128bit encryption, send LM and NTLM responses)

Reinstalled printer several times. I have googled this issue almost every day for a month and tried every setting that I have came across (changed them back if it didn't help). So far nothing has worked for me, and this is my last ditch effort to get this printer working. Does anyone know why I can not print from my Windows 7 machine to a printer connected to my Ubuntu machine? Especially when I CAN print from the UBUNTU and Vista machines.

Fedora :: Printing Via SMB To Windows 7 Printer?

Dec 8, 2009

I'm running Fedora 11 and printing to both an HP Laser Jet 4Plus and HP Office Jet 7130 via a Windows 7 PC. I have a UID/PWD account on the PC that differs from that on the Fedora, also one that is identical UID/PWD to that used in Fedora. This has worked fine until "recently" (noticed it in ~last week or 2). Suddenly I'm being asked repeatedly to authenticate to print, neither account credentials are working. I get the message "Tree connect failed (NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED)" and I get nowhere. I tried delete and reinstall the printers in Fedora, that works OK, can "see" them in setup on the Windows 7 host just fine. But can't get past the repeated authentications ...? I'm guessing something has changed in Fedora updates because this used to work with same Windows 7 PC in prior weeks.

OpenSUSE :: Printing PDF's And Stopping The Printer?

Jun 4, 2011

I'm having trouble with printing a PDF that is in landscape mode. When I tell Okular or Adoble Reader to print a document in landscape mode, the text is Illegible. If I tell it to print as portrait mode, then I can read the text but the end is cut off and there is no way for me to tell Okular or Adobe Reader what the margins are. That option was grayed out.

I'm having another problem: When I cancel the job from the CUPS interface, it says it canceled the job but the printer keeps going and finishes whether I want it to or not. With 11.2, I was able to have it set up so that when I told it to stop the printer, it did so right away. Why can't I get the printer to stop in the middle of a job if I see something wrong with it so that I don't have to waste ink?

Ubuntu :: Brother HL-1230 Printer / Two Sided Printing On A4 Sheet

Jan 29, 2010

Don't know where this should go, so I put it here for starters! I want to print documents on both sides of an A4 sheet, using a Brother HL-1230 printer. Is there a way of getting the odd numbered pages out first (then a pause?) and the even numbered pages after? To do this manually is tedious on a long (14 page) doc. Way back in the days of that other op. sys. I had a program (WordPerfect?) Whose printer driver would do this. Is there one for Ubuntu?

Debian Configuration :: No Printing From LPR - Unknown Printer

Oct 19, 2010

I have installed an HP LaserJet 2200 network printer using CUPS successfully and can print test pages and stuff from OpenOffice, Evince etc. But no luck printing from lpr. Using lpstat seems to suggest all is well:

$ lpstat -t
scheduler is running
system default destination: HP-LaserJet-2200
device for HP-LaserJet-2200: socket://
HP-LaserJet-2200 accepting requests since Tue 19 Oct 2010 14:01:50 NZDT
printer HP-LaserJet-2200 is idle. Enabled since Tue 19 Oct 2010 14:01:50 NZDT
Ready to print.

If I now try to print 'test.txt' using:
$ lpr test.txt
nothing happens. Try calling the printer by name:
$ lpr -P HP-LaserJet-2200 test.txt
lpr: HP-LaserJet-2200: unknown printer

I have added my user name to the lp and lpadmin groups. Trying the above as 'sudo' results in the same result. The only thing I've noticed is that when printing something from OpenOffice, in the document print status I get the message 'Processing - not connected?', although printing still works.
