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.

Our one remaining problem seems to be printing. She has an HP OfficeJet 6500 USB printer. We have the computer conntected. Strangely, when I boot from the CD the printer shows up as installed even though I did nothing to install it. After having submitted a print job it shows the printer status as "idle" and the print queue is empty. I tried deleting that printer and re-installing. The installation went as one would expect. However the results are the same. I'm beginning to think that somehow the problem is related to the fact that we are operating from the live CD. getting this thing to print from the live CD.
Trying to print from my laptop to friends wireless printer. I see his printer "7600 Series" in Network - File Browser. How do I print to his printer. I have text document. I click on "Print", but only "Print to file comes up".
I did System -> Printing -> Help -> Troubleshoot Got: CUPS Service Stopped The CUPS printer spooler does not appear to be running. To correct this choose system -> Administration -> Services There is not "Services there" What to do? Ubuntu 10.04 LTS
I successfully installed cups on my fedorabox, I can manage it through the web interface on port 631. I added the hplip and installed a HP Deskjet printer. However, when I want to print a test page I get the following error: "no pages found". The print job is in a stopped state...
I have installed cups(1.5.3) in my Beagleboard black based custom hardware running on Debian 7.8 using 'apt-get install' command. I am trying to print to HP deskjet 1112 usb printer from system line but nothing is getting printed and the output of 'lpstat -t' shows the error : "/usr/lib/cups/filter/hpcups failed "
The error_log output is :

Please find the response from CUPS administrators below:
As far as I see this has nothing to do with CUPS.As far as I see the first error message comes from Ghostscript: "Unable to open the initial device, quitting" (this is in Ghostscript's gs_init.ps file).Therefore Ghostscript does not produce any output which lets then the filter from HP's HPLIP driver software error out with "cupsRasterOpen failed" and finally the HP backend errors out with "ERROR: null print job".Neither Ghostscript nor HP's HPLIP driver software belong to CUPS so that the issue does not belong to CUPS (according to my analysis).
I guess that somehow the "Ghostscript command line" is not correct or does not work as it should.Usually this is alos no bug in Ghostscript but "some where else" where the Ghostscript command line with all its parameters is created.
My PDF's won't print anymore. They used too, but now all I get is a message that says, "document failed to print". Office docs print fine on the Canon Pixma i4300. I installed the CUPS PDF driver but it doesn't help. Acrobat won't initialize reliably in Firefox 5.0.
The printer prints with ubuntu live cd. I deleted the printer from the list and I followed the instructions here. When I tried to print, sometimes it shows that the documents was printed (but my printer is standby) sometimes it shows the document failed.
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.
I cannot print pdf files. I have tried using okular and xpdf. The documents display in the program, but print preview shows a blank page. The printer then sends out blank pages. I have tried printing on 2 different printers using usb cables. Using terminal to process the commands shows error:
I'm trying to install a Brother MFC425CN printer on my Gentoo system. I have obtained the files needed from Brother and extracted the payload.
The script for creating the filter (endless echos) is a csh script, so I emerged tcsh and ran the script. No luck. CUPS does not see the filter, even though it is present and has the same owner, group, and permissions that work on my other gentoo system.
When I print a test page the log file says
Code: E [27/Jun/2010:09:36:03 +0800] PID 3912 (/usr/libexec/cups/filter/brlpdwrapperMFC210C) stopped with status 22!

After upgrade to ghostscript 9.02 from current all print jobs fail with: 'There is a missing print filter for printer HP_F2480'
The printer is an All-inone deskjet F2480 and the cups printer queue has been setup with the hplip tools. Before the upgrade it was 'working' with quite a few bugs...eg image not printed correct, multipage printing garbage. (page for page printing was the workaround)
Do I need to remove the printer and define it again?
I'm trying to print a PDF from Windows through CUPS. I'm guessing it is supposed to appear somewhere on my Ubuntu machine, but I cannot find any files. When I go on the CUPS server and look at "completed jobs", it shows every print that I did, but I have no idea where the file is located.It is not in my Home directory.
my printer has a known CUPS bug; A4 is printed as letter size; i.e. printing only appears on the bottom half of the page. I downloaded a ppd file at [URL] but it improved nothing. Also installed the bug's patch (sorry I don't have the bug's number) and followed the instructions; zero results. Upgraded Ubuntu 9.04's CUPS-related repositories to 9.10 but no improvement. Every test page still comes out with just the top third sitting at the bottom.
For starters, I'll warn you that I installed linux on a pc for the first time yesterday. With the guidance of a pro, I'm running Ubuntu 11.04 desktop 32-bit with CUPS 1.4.6. I have three Samsung ML-2525 USB printers attached. They all three show up with lsusb:
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 04e8:3297 Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd Bus 001 Device 003: ID 04e8:3297 Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd Bus 001 Device 002: ID 04e8:3297 Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd
When I go into CUPS, it shows one. I've tried to add another via bash and I can't seem to get that to work either. All three were plugged in when CUPS was started, so I've ruled out that thing where it doesn't see new USB devices. I set up three printers in CUPS (via the web interface) and (no surprise!) they all print to the same printer. I then tried to force them to go to the right places by shutting down CUPS, modifying cups.conf to inculde "FileDevice yes", restarting CUPS and using lpadmin to change the uri's to their /dev/ filedevices. That doesn't work. You probably knew that already, didn't you!?
Then the jobs just sit in their queues forever. (I let it sit for 25 hours, they are still "processing").
I cant print in firefox 3.6 by cups. Whe i go to file print i see the printers. The file is send to the wright printer. Printer crasch. I look on internet en found a solution. Firefox can only print to file. I had to add gtk-printer-backbands ="lpr,file" in /etc/gtk-2.0 in the file gtkr. and restart cups When i co to the printers i don't see the printers but only lpr. When i klik print the page wil print but only to the defualt printer. Is there a solution the fix this error. Ore how can i give the commando lpr -p printername. I try this on command line I make 2 printqueue's to the same printer and when i give echo "text" | lpr -p printername it works How can i change the gtkr file to have the posibility to slect the printers
I am hard time printing to one particular Canon IR8500 printer Red hat.WE are using CUPS to manager around 30 printers.when I try to start the printer from CUPS, it comes back immediately to Printer State: Stopped, accepting jobs..After I delete it and redefine it, the status says Idle, but as soon as I submit a job, the status change to 'Stopped'.
I'm not sure how it happened but recently when trying to print to a previously added printer, the printer does not show up. Most options are grayed out and clicking troubleshooter tells you that CUPS is not started. Latest guide I could find is for Ubuntu 9.04, options for restarting cups in 10.4 are slightly different (see below) To restart cups from terminal window in Ubuntu 10.4:sudo /etc/init.d/cups restartI looks like in Ubuntu 9.04 the command was /etc/init.d/cupsys restart. This should show the printer and open up the grayed out menu options, allowing you to print normally again.
I am currently attempting to attach my printer to my fresh Debian installation and get CUPS running with it. I was able to add the printer easily enough, but when I try and print a test page from the web interface, it fails, and I see the following in the log.

I am running CentOS 5.4 with CUPS v1.3.7 and have a Brother printer (MFC-5895CW) that connects wirelessly to a SonicWall device. The SonicWall is hardwired to my PC. I have found that periodically, the printer queue will become disabled and the only way to re-enable it is to issue a cupsenable command.
I believe that queue only gets disabled if the wireless connection drops in the middle of a print job. I've tried dropping the wireless connection and then bringing it back up when no print jobs are active or pending and the queue is fine for the next print job that is sent when the connection is up.
I did a little research and found that my version of CUPS contains support for an ErrorPolicy setting in the printer.conf file that may prevent the print queue from being disabled. I'm hoping that if I change the default value from "stop-printer" to "retry-job" that this will prevent CUPS from disabling the print queue and requirring a cupsenable command to re-enable the queue.
I don't want to play around with scheduling cron jobs to enable the queue.
When I try to print something there is only some led blinks on printer and nothing is print. I am using drivers from brother(cupswrapper). I am using CUPS 1.3.11. I didn't have any problems on my previous installation of slackware(but I don't know which driver I've used).
Im trying to set up a print server using Fedora 12 and CUPS.
It recognized the printer, and i can print from the linux box. When i try to install it on my Win 7 64-bit box i can install the printer itself by giving it the IP address and port number of the linux box but i cant sent anything to it to print. I apologize im a little rough on the details, im not at home right now. I believe the printer i have is a HP PSC 1500. I opened the cups port on the linux firewall, and i shared the printer through the cups admin browser page.
I have an ubuntu server (9.04) that needs to share a printer (a Brother 2070N on USB). To configure cups, I had to modify cups.conf quite a bit to let me access the printer management pages, but I did get it working. I can print using the lpr command, as well as print test pages using the management interface's "Print Test Page" button from any computer on my network. However, I cannot actually set up Ubuntu, Fedora, Vista, or OSX to see the network printer, and it's driving me insane.Brother from any computer on the network I can see the specific printer management page, but no computer can actually print to the printer (other than using the "print test page" button)
