I am having problems in printing 'complex' PDF files. Simple pages are no problem. Good examples is Royal Mail postage printing. Generated PDF displays correctly - and in Ubuntu 10.10 printed perfectly. Since I upgraded to 11.04 I get a blank page. No matter what I do. I have tried everything suggested when I googled the problem - but no solution works. I am printing across the network through my NAS box (no changes to that at all) to an HP Laserjet 1010. It all works correctly and as expected under Windows - so the setup is fine with printer and NAS. its a problem introduced by 11.04.
Im unable to print pdfs. the printer only gives me a blank page. what do i need so it can print? I tried going to "advanced" and checking "print as image" but it does not work. Printer still gives me a blank page.
I installed Xubuntu and was thrilled to see that it had already setup my Brother HL-2140 USB laser printer.However, there is something seriously wrong with the setup. When you try and print, even a test page - it just churns through the entire paper tray printing nothing. Also, when you restart the computer it tries to print the jobs again. I went to Printing and selected the printer but could not find where you could see the print job queue. I did see it during troubleshooting and was able to delete the jobs on the troubleshooting screen.
I have dualboot between Windows XP and Ubuntu 9.04. I have HP deskjet prineter, model=D1560. Ubuntu installed the printer automatically. The problem is that when I print any page in Ubuntu, the printer does not print anything and eject the page blank. But Windows XP is printing finely.
We just recently started using Linux Ubuntu. I've been having trouble opening PDF files. I can open and close just a few PDF files one at at time, but then suddenly when I click on the PDF link, it opens up to a blank page. After that, all I get are blank pages
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.
Inherited an old Laserjet 6P that was working fine XP. No matter which printer driver I use all I get are pages and pages of garbage during the test print. I have tried the hplip, gimp, ljet4 drivers without success. I have tried sending text files from the command line as well (cat /etc/passwd > /dev/lp0) with the same result.
Fedora 11 64 cups 1.4 hplip-3.9 hpijs-3.9
Anyone using this printer with cups 1.4? Any ideas which driver to use?
I would often like to print out information from a page on a website. I don't want all the rest of it - the pages before and after.
The trouble is that the websites page numbering, when it is available, doesn't often conform to my printer and the size of the page on the screen. So I guess at,say,page 6 and get something like page 3 if I printed it all out.
I have a large image that I want to print over 4 pages, each page showing 1/4 of the overall image, that I will past together. I'm doing this from GIMP on an up-to-date fc12 system. Searching around I find that there is a "scale" field in the print dialog and the lp command that cups supports and according to the documentation if I set scale to "200%" it should do what I want.However, when I set scale to 200% I get only one page with the upper left 1/4 of the page and then nothing. How do I get it to print the remaining 3 pages?
This printer has worked fine with FC14 on my AMD x86_64 system for months using the printer drivers from the Brother Solutions Center web site (see below). I installed FC15 today from the network CD and installed the same printer drivers. Test print works fine, and just now this web page printed OK using Firefox. But when I try to print from LibreOffice Writer or Thunderbird, a message appears briefly at the bottom of my Gnome3 desktop that the job is being printed and then another message saying that printing is complete. Nothing is sent to the printer, however. In Thunderbird, the Print dialog window says the status of the MFC-240C is "No pages found!" I tried deleting the printer using System Setings -> Printers and reinstalling using system-config-printer, selecting the Brother MFC-240C, with no change.
Unusual problem here -I'm posting in hardware as I'm not certain where it fits.Home laptop (mainly wife's in use) upgraded from 11.3x86 last week to 11.4x64, pretty much everything is awesome.However, when she attempts to print a PDF with multiple pages per sheet (study notes),
My HP F4180 only prints blank pages. It can, however, print out a test page, so there's no issue with the ink or hardware, it seems. Also, it used to print properly in the past. I've run hp-check, but the program ends up with no warnings or findings. Likewise, the HP appelet ends every print job with a 'completed' status, seeming to think all's well. The only remote clue I've found so far: HP's troubleshooting tool noticed that the page format is 'letter' (small 'l') according to the printer settings in System>Printing, but 'Letter' (capital 'L') according to the Open Office printer properties dialogue box launched when trying to print. The troubleshooter referred to this discrepancy as a possible 'alignment' issue. Could this possibly account for the failure to print? If so, how could the two page size descriptions be made identical (they come from drop down menus which I don't know how to access)?
Writing this from the windows box since my problem is php pages display blank in any web browser on my kids computer running 10.10. and the forums are php based.All the threads I have seen are from people with a local apache server and php server running. This is just a workstation and nothing server like installed (well not apache or php anyway)so everything I have found tells me to check config files that of course are not there.Anyway since his favorite web game is php based he is currently a bit upset. It did work when I initially installed 10.10 on a full flatten and reload.
I upgraded from 13.0 to 13.1 and now I have strange behaviors with the printer. It is an Epson Stylus Photo RX640. It was working well with the vanilla Gutenprint 5.2.2 that came in Slack 13.0. The printer is shared and used from other slackware boxes and a mac. Upgrade to 13.1 (gutenprint gets to be 5.2.4) ...
Now when I print from the machine that has the printer attached I get full black pages, and cups shows errors. The Mac is still able to print well (probably because it is using its own PPD and passing through directly to the printer). I then removed gutenprint, and then removed the 5.2.2 PPDs (that were still in the system). Reinstalled gutenprint from the Slackware 13.1 distro. And the problem persists.
Im using fedora 8 and have installed php5 ,and mysql and i see only php blank pages ,some idea? must be php.ini, but i am newbie installing php and apache, i disabled selinux, and grant all the permisssions to excecute..
I installed PHP 5.3 from remi repository and now some PHP pages end up as blank pages. Joomla pages load with no problem but iDevAffiliate pages end up as blank pages. Could it be something in the php.ini file? I have no idea where to look. Any ideas?
I'm trying to get a Brother HL-2040 printer working, without much success. I installed the brother-cups driver, but that didn't work. When I try to print, the printer just shoots out blank pages, and the only way I can stop it is by unplugging the printer. Worked OK on Ubuntu 10.10. I have gnome fallback, if that matters. There's a post saying that I need to download a ppd file, [URL] but when I try to get it, it opens a page instead of downloading a file. Also the information is from 2008, and I don't know how well that will work with all the changes that have been made to Ubuntu and the newer kernel. I got lucky! went to: [URL] and got the .deb files for the lpr driver and the cups driver. Had to use sudo dpkg -i in the terminal, as I couldn't get the software GUI to work. But it prints.
Recently i had migrated from windows 7 to fedora 15. i have lot of flipbooks with me and unable to open those flipbooks in fedora. finding a suitable solution to open those flipbooks. is there a software to open these books linux. in windows there is no requirement for special softwares to open flipbook, since it is similar to flv or swf files. i had already tried with wine. with wine the file is opened but do not displays the contents or pages, show a blank white screen. @people who dont know about flipbooks: flipbooks are flash objects usually created from pdf files used for reading, flipbooks simulate the reallife book actions(page turning).
I'm struggling on installing a KONICA-MINOLTA printer magicolor 4695MF printing properly with Linux Mint Debian Edition (up to date). The test page works fine...
KONICA-MINOLTA delivers 2 PPDs: one for standard printing and one for OpenOffice printing (available on the KONICA-MINOLTA support site).
Leaving a side the one for OpenOffice which is poor in using the capabilities of the printer, I concentrate only on the global one (M4695PX.ppd).
It's much more difficult for other applications, starting with EVINCE: some PDF files are printed properly (i.e. those generated in OpenOffice by the CUPS PDF printer), others come out as one only blank page, regardless to the original length of the document.
So documents received from 3rd party may be "printable" or not. And trust Murphy, the most critical aren't printed...
Attached, the troubleshooting file generated by [system-config-printer] => [URL] ...
Interesting problem: For the first time with Xubuntu 10.10 64bit, I am finding certain applications print corrupt. A varying amount of letters / numbers either get substituted/print a blank space/ print a box etc etc. This corruption seems to happen from a Pdf ( evince ) or Spreadheet ( Gnumeric ) Opening the same Pdf on another machine (ubuntu 10.10 32bit) prints perfectly. Opening the same .xls file on the original computer but using OOo Calc prints perfectly.
I guess I have ruled out any problems with the printer itself or the network JetDirect box. I have re-installed CUPS and evince and upgraded to the latest version of HPLIP but the problem appears unchanged.
I have recently upgraded to Maverick, but I no more manage to print PDF files, neither with Okular nor with Adobe Reader for Linux. The only way I have is to directly use lpr, but it's long work. My printer is an hp deskjet 5150.
I'd like to take a regular .pdf file (also converted it to .ps), and double the pages and switch it to landscape orientation. I've used the tools at the following website, but it doesn't exactly do what I want it to.[URL]... In particular, the left page is too far to the left, and both pages are too high up. Please see attached screenshot of one of the pages. I'd like to get this to work because then instead of printing 234-page coursenotes, it'll be half that. Does anyone have a good solution to do this?
i have started using linux for less than 6 months. now i have come across a problem with pdf files in linux. i want to join different pages from different pdf files into single pdf file.i have come across softwares that do this but they perform this using page numbers from pdf files.but i need to do this based on keywords in different pages .for eg there 3 pdf files
now i have to create a pdf file langunage.pdf ,combining the topic languanges from three pdf files america.pdf,india.pdf,china.pdf how can i do it?? whether there is any open source software for doing this?.
When printing web pages or PDF files in Ubuntu 10.04 to a network printer using CUPS, files are blown out to huge sizes - over 200Mb for a 30Mb PDF document and over 70Mb for a simple web page with 6 images and some text. Its holding up everyone else in our office who, through Windows XP are printing the same files in about a 20th of the time it takes Ubuntu+CUPS. I have tried printing directly to the printer, printing through the Win2003 PDC share, printing with LPR (which coincidentally generates a bit smaller ps file) and printing with Adobe Reader instead of evince
I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 64 bit. I just got a Brother hl-2140 printer installed the drivers via the brother site and I can't print pdf's. I can print gedit, openoffice, etc... but no PDF's. This is kind of a deal breaker.
