Ubuntu Servers :: Use Printer And Scanner Connected To Server Pc?
Jan 13, 2011
I want to set up a home / file / torrent / web / print server at home. I am using a dell optiplex gx240 and my printer is a Epson dx8400. I was wondering if it is possible to use the printer and scanner connected to the server. Has anyone done this before? I hope to print from any computer in my house. Scanning would probably be the hardest part I guess.
I was able to get my Epson Stylus NX510 printer up and running (after much issue), but I can't get the scanner working. I'm on a laptop, and the printer/scanner is wifi enabled and broadcasts with its own IP address. I can print with no problem, but xsane and simple scan don't recognize the scanner. I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx.
a newbe one, but its if my fifth try in using ubuntu for working with Architecture, so... my problem is...I have a plotter (xerox 2230ij) connected in a print server, i tryed to connect in lpt1 port and was sucessful with HP 750 plus driver... so.. yay! but my original intend is to connect in print server and all the computers (windows/ubuntu) use that.But when i connect in PS, i cant see the plotter, but i can acess the PS (Dlink)so.. what i have to do, to make thing working well? and i have virtualbox with windows XP, can XP acess that plotter as well?here a small scheme of my connections...
I have a router Asus RT-n16 where i've connected my EPSON DX5000. I've configured the printer function, adding the printer as AppSocket, adding router IP and port 9100 (socket://Router_IP:9100), but now i can't get the scanner function.
I've installed packages from here[URL].do (iscan) and adding on /etc/sane.d/epkowa.conf the line
Code: net 192.168.1.1 #my router ip but it's not working. When i run scanimage -L i get this message:
No scanners were identified. If you were expecting something different, check that the scanner is plugged in, turned on and detected by the sane-find-scanner tool (if appropriate). Please read the documentation which came with this software (README, FAQ, manpages). The scanner option worked fine when my printer is directly connected at my computer.
i have setup Open VPN on Ubuntu 9.04, generated the key and have it running successfully on the server end. I download the open vpn client for windows, copied over the key ca and cert file and connected to the erver. All went well and the open vpn gui said its connected to the server (green comp icon in taskbar) and it said in a ballon it assigned me an ip of 10.8.0.6 it all looks good... BUT i have no vpn access... The virtual adapted in windows is not able to pull an actual IP/gateway and such...
I am delving into the world of scanners for the first time. With 9.04, my Cannon CanoScan LiDE 25 works without a hitch in ScanLite and Scanner Utility but not in XSane. I am able to scan photos and such and get good quality images. I have an infrequent need to make copies of pieces of paper and have been experimenting a bit trying to make my scanner and printer act like a copier. what type of images to take and how to print them?
I have just bought and installed an HP 2050 printer-scanner-copier. The printer works fine, but the scanner is not recognised by Simple Scan or XSane.
Simple Scan states: No Scanners Detected
XSane Image Scanning Program states: No Devices Available
I have Ubuntu 10.10 - the Maverick Meercat installed on my computer.
I have downloaded the hplip-3.11.3a.run file from the HP website but it is still in my download folder and I don't know how to get it from the download folder to my computer and then once that is accomplished, I don't know what to type in the terminal to get this file installed.
Heck, I don't even know if this is what I should install to correct this problem or not.
I just picked up a second hand printer/scanner for free cuz I fixed it (which wasn't a lot of work). It works perfectly over wifi except that simple scan doesnt pick it up. I would just use a cable but we don't have an extra one and I don't get paid until friday. Anyway to get simple scan to work over wireless? The printer is an HP Photosmart C7280 all in one.
About a week ago I installed my first Linux (Ubuntu 10.04). Since then I've been trying to get my printer to work by following some of the instructions on the web.Unfortunately,as a newbie, I can't seem to get it right... The printer is - Brother DCP-135C.
I have a canon printer which was working so far. After my latest upgrade its giving errors saying "Printer not connected -- Check your connection" Fortunately I had a backup of my root before the upgrade and one difference I see is that on the new system theres no /dev/usb/lp0 which there is on the old one. So how do I make it? Or should I use the /dev/lp0? Note they are different:
So (naturally) when I tried to make a softlink from /dev/usb/lp0 to /dev/lp0 it did not work.
I have a laptop which I use for school and I have a scanner/printer that used to be near and I used to scan things and store them in the laptop via the scanner/printer's USB cable. In an attempt to make space to study more comfortably on my desk, I moved the scanner/printer near my gaming computer (on a desk that I don't use). What I want is to scan via my desktop (=gaming computer) and have it directly be stored in my laptop via a symlink and a LAN network. My desktop runs Squeeze and my laptop runs Lenny. One of my weakest points in computing is networks so I would very much appreciate it if someone could guide me through this process.
My laptop has an ethernet port and a wireless card whereas my desktop has a built-in ethernet port, a wireless PCI card as well as another ethernet port (PCI) which I am planning to install soon. For my laptop, I want wireless internet, and the wired connection to be to the desktop for the scanner/printer's purposes.As for the desktop, I want to connect to my internet via a wired ethernet connection and use my extra PCI ethernet port for the scanner/printer situation
I have a Brother MFC-240C inkjet printer & scanner. On installation of Maverick Meerkat v. 10.10, my scanner function failed. I added the same line into the file as for Lucid Lynx v. 10.04 and the scanner has scanned perfectly. The lines Brother gives are for the following file: Ubuntu 9.10, 10.04
1. Open "/lib/udev/rules.d/40-libsane.rules" file. 2. Add the following two lines to the end of the device list. (Before the line "# The following rule will disable ..."):
I've been trying to get my Epson NX420 printer to scan for about three months now, and I finally got it working. Here's how: 1. Go to [URL] and search for your printer. Select distribution and version and answer a couple of other questions. 2. Download pipslite_1.5.0-2_i386.deb, (or the 64-bit version), and all the iscan*.deb files (again, appropriate to your system). 3. [CRITICAL] Go to [URL] and download this 8.04 package which worked just fine for me on 10.10. 4. Use the Software Center or GDebi or sudo dpkg -i the .debs in this order:
1) libtdl3, which is a dependency for Step 2. 2) pipslite 3) iscan-data 4) iscan-network 5) iscan (If you use a USB connection, you don't need the iscan-network file.) This got my NX420 scanner up and running just fine. Installing libtdl3 was the key; in fact, I used the Debian Lenny package.
I'm posting here because I'm having trouble setting up by HP PSC 1315 printer scanner copier machine. I believe I have the proper drivers already installed. However, nothing happens when I try printing a test page. Also when I try printing a web page, it goes through the motions. Then I get an error message saying the computer can't recognize the printer.
I can't use my printer/scanner - it is an Epson TX110. When I try to use Image scan - I get the message; "Could not send the command to scanner. Check the scanner's status."
There is nothing wrong with the MFC apart from not working on Ubuntu 9.10. I have had it connected to another computer that ran Ubuntu 9.01 (I think that was the release used) and it ran fine but now I'm stuck -
I have drivers installed but cant get them to co-operate with me.
I want to get my Canon MP210 printer / scanner working under Fedora 8 Linux. When I plug the USB cable in, I get a little popup with a setup wizard, but my printer isn't even in that list. I've tried the system-config-printer wizard as well as going in through the control panels and trying everything reasonable.
I have Fedora 12 installed on my computer and I'm trying to set up a printer and a scanner for my personal use. The printer is a Canon LBP 3200 and the scanner a Mustek 1200 UB Plus. Both are connected via USB.For the printer i managed to install a driver, but it will still not print. It only ejects blank pages. For the scanner i tried sane, but to no avail.
I'm trying to connect my HP PSC 1315 printer scanner copier to my laptop, where I'm using Ubuntu Hardy. I checked my synaptic package manager. It appears I have HLIP and the other drivers already installed. However, I'm unable to print a thing. Nothing happens when I try printing a test page. When I try to print a regular web page, I get an error message saying the psc 1310 is not connected.
I have a Brother mfc-8890dw that is attached to my local area network.I can ping the static ip address of the printer and receive a reply. I can print from all applications.I cannot scan. I did modify the rules files but that only appears pertinent for usb attached devices. What do I need to do to get XSane to recognize my Ethernet attached scanner/printer?

Is this possible?De printer is in a windows workgroup and shared. De name of the workgroup is DEROON and the name f the computer the printer is connected to is Nico
I installed Server 11.04 and selected the options for the print server and file server. I would like to add a HP Officejet J3680 printer (USB connection) but cannot figure out how. On a remote computer running Ubuntu 11.04 desktop, I tried using the CUPS web interfce but I keep getting the "Unable to connect" message. I installed webmin on the same remote computer and tried installing it that way. That way, I selected "USB Printer 1" and used "generic postscript driver" This did not work. I do not know how to install a printer. I'll use command line on the server if necessary. How is this done?
I have an HP C5100 photosmart printer/copier/scanner which works fine as a printer from Linux and as a printer or scanner from a PC running Windows XP. The device is net connected not local to either box. "Sane" (installed) does not appear to support this printer (from web site) but other comments seem to imply that others have made it work using "hplip" (also installed). Nowhere do I see instructions on how to make the scanner work from Linux.
