Ubuntu :: Unable To Print To Local Or Network Printer?

May 23, 2010

I recently installed 10.04 and unable to print to local or network printer?

When I go to System Admin/Printing to add my printers, screen says I am not connected to localhost and I am unable to use Add printer. When I used version 9.10, I added a network + a local printer by this method but I'm not sure what I have done wrong this time around.

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 :: Canon Mp470 Printer - 10.10 - Able To Print Black And White But Unable To Print Photos

Dec 26, 2010

My wife has a canon MP470 printer and running ubuntu 10.10. I am able to print black and white, but unable to print photos. I got it to work using another driver, but not the 'correct' one for this printer. I have searched a bit and don't see anything about ubuntu 10.10, just older versions. Or should I just network her to my printer....?

Ubuntu Networking :: Cannot Print From Other Computers To Local Printer

Dec 30, 2010

In Ubuntu 10.10, I have my printer, an Epson D120, shared. I can print from the computer itself, but other computers cannot print to it. Both Ubuntu and Windows machines have the printer successfully installed. They can access it, I can access CUPS from all these machines and the the job queue even reports the jobs sent from these computers. But the page count is unknown and nothing is printed, although it says the job is completed.

I'm quite desperate to get this to work. It would suck if I need to go back to Windows just because some minor thing goes wrong. I really don't understand why local prints are OK, but prints from the network are not working.

Debian :: Installing Network Printer - Able To Print To One Of The Network Printers From My Desktop

May 10, 2010

Total Newb here, sorry. I am pseudo-IT at work and have set up a desktop with Debian 5 (accidentally overwrote Windows in the process, but there you go). We are set up with network printers here (all Windows), and I was wondering how to go about being able to print to one of the network printers from my Linux desktop. Can I even connect to the Windows network with this desktop (it is hooked up)? Understand, I do NOT want to screw up anything on the network - they won't let me play anymore if I do. If I download the Linux driver, what do I do next?

Ubuntu :: Print To A Network Printer From 9.10 Install?

Mar 15, 2010

I am trying to print to a network printer from my 9.10 install. The printer is Canon_MF4360-4390, when browsing for printers, cups finds it immediately. I found drivers for this printer online (driver is called UFR_II_Printer_Driver_for_Linux_V200_uk_EN). The drivers installed without any problems.

I can go through cups and add the printer successfully. I can even print a test page that shows up in the queue as completed. However, nothing comes out of the printer. Also, there is nothing in /var/log/cups/error_log to show that an error has occurred.[URL]..

Ubuntu :: Can't Print To XP Network Printer / Sort It?

Sep 6, 2010

The printer is connected to a networked XP machine that is accessible from Ubuntu.
I have set up the printer as instructed in this help file...
SAMBA sees the printer on the network , verifies the printer and the driver loads.
Everything goes along just fine until "print test page" No go.
The printer shows up in the "Printing -local host" window.
Under "printer properties" the "Make and Model"are showing the correct device in the correct location.
The "Printer State" shows "idle - /usr/lib/cups/filter/foomatic-rip failed"
Is there something I might have missed in the set-up?

Ubuntu Networking :: Unable To See Local Web Sites From Local Network

Jun 28, 2011

I have installed a web server on my local network. Everything is well configured and web pages are shown correctly from Internet (outside the local network) using the domain or the public IP.The issue is if I try to see that web pages (using the domain or the public IP) from inside the local network. In that case the router config page ( is shown instead of the web pages.From inside the local network I'm only able to see the web pages using the internal IP address (192.168.1.XX).

Ubuntu :: Print On A Toshiba 2820c Which Is Connected To The Local Network?

Jan 12, 2010

I just came up with Linux/Xubuntu so I hope you I hope you'll excuse my "noobishness". I've Xubuntu 9.04 running on a laptop along with cups 1.3.9. I'd like to print on a toshiba 2820c which is connected to the local network. I tried to install it via localhost:631 what seemed to be working quite well since the toshiba is automatically detected and the driver (according to the printers manuel it's the same as for the 4520c) is already included. So I finish the installation and whenever I try to print something I am told that the job is sent and done but the printer doesn't even realise, that there was somebody trying to print something, at least there is nothing in the logs. I also tried to use the ppd-file from the toshiba-support but it failed again.

Hardware :: Trying To Print On HP JetDirect Network Printer

Dec 10, 2010

I'm getting mad trying to use a HP Business Inkjet 2200 over the network with my brand new Fedora 14 box.. The detection part is OK but I can print only 1 page, whatever it is: the test page or the first page of a document. After that, the printer is locked in "print" mode and no one can print any more until it was power down and powered up again. I say that it is locked in "print" mode because its LCD screen displays "print" instead of "ready".

I've tried all the different drivers available (foomatics and other gutenprints).I've tried with the JetDirect protocol or through a samba share.Always the same result: only one page printed then locked for every one..I'll try to find a way to attach the cups troubleshoot and a wireshark capture, they're to big for now..Could any body help me ? If not for me, do it for the community: my colleagues there all say that's normal since I'm using linux!!!

Networking :: Print With Use Of Different User On Network Printer

Mar 25, 2010

The company I work for decided to use printers on which one should log in with there MS Windows password. After logging in, one could print there documents. This is ok for the MS windows office PC's, but not for the Linux based systems.The Linux user accounts have a different name than the MS Windows accounts.Because of this, it is not possible to print with that Linux user account. I can create a Linux user account with the same username as the MS Windows account, so that all users can use that account if they want to print something on the network printers. They can use it like:$ ssh <username equal to Windows>@<hostname> "oowriter <path>/<file>"

Now they can print a file from oowriter to the network printer.So my question is, is it possible to use the account name that is equal to the MS windows account name by default?

MS Windows account name = milk
Linux account name = schuurs
Linux account "milk" is created for printing by all users.

user works with account "schuurs" and prints with user "milk" automatically without the use of the ssh string mentioned before.

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 Networking :: Can't Send Print Jobs To Network Printer

Jul 18, 2011

I have a Brother MFC-295CN network printer. Been having a heck of a time trying to get this thing working since I installed Ubuntu 11.04 yesterday. I've been away from Linux for some time and am new at using it. Downloaded and installed using the Software Center:


Was able to send a test print and it came out fine. But when I tried to send a print job - nothing. And, the scanner won't work either.

My computer is a Gateway GT5464. It's dual booted with Windows 7.

Debian Configuration :: Cannot Print With HP2600n Network Printer

Jan 11, 2011

I run Debian Squeeze but I have the system installed step by step from minimal installation. So I'm not sure if I have forgotten basic packages important for printing. I open system-config-printer to add a new network printer. In the list of the Network Printers after some seconds it appears the HP Color LaserJet 2600n. I chose it and hit Forward. A new window opens that says that system is searching for Drivers and finally I'm ready for printing.

Fedora Hardware :: Dell 3110cn Printer With Fedora 14 X64 / Unable To Print?

Mar 2, 2011

I am trying to connect to a network printer Dell 3110cn from Fedora 14 x64. Till a few days ago, everything was fine. However, over the last few days, I am unable to print anything using my old settings and I am unable to print even if I delete the printer and reinstall it.

During setup, Fedora is able to connect to the printer and I am able to install the drivers and everything. But, when I print something (even the test page), I get the error message
"Unable to write print data - Broken pipe'.

I have searched online quite a bit about this problem. Most suggestions were to look if the printer status was "Idle - Ready/Accepting Jobs" since the problem in those cases was that the printer status was "Printer not ready". But in my case, the printer is recognized but unable to print.

Ubuntu Networking :: Unable To Print On New Office Network

Nov 30, 2010

I live in Japan and am trying to print to a network printer (Richo Ipsio C411 PS). Couldn't find the ppd in the foomatic database. At my previous school, I had no problems printing to the printers on the network once I found the ppd. A few months ago, I transfered to a new site. Unfortunately, when I send a print job on the network here, the printer just gives a Japanese message that says "command error." I've tried other printers on the network (all different models of the Ipsio).

I went to the Japanese Ricoh website and it recommended a generic printer ppd. I downloaded that, but it didn't work. Then I got the ppd off of the windows driver CD and tried that. Again, no success. I have no idea what I'm doing (obvious, but should be noted) or how to get this started. I also tried 2 versions of Ubuntu -- I'm running 8.04 and 10.04.

Attached are copies of the ppd files if it helps.

Ubuntu :: Printing - Print Job Shows The Printer Status As "idle" And The Print Queue Is Empty

Jul 15, 2011

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.

Ubuntu :: Unable To Connect Printer Via Network?

Jul 4, 2010

I give up.. after an hour trying to get my HP 7600 to network connect

My main box is usb connected to my HP Photosmart 7600 and works fine, my daughter has her winxp box connected to it over network as well. My wife's Ubuntu box (same OS and version as mine 9.10) CANNOT connect in any way, shape or form. I've tried every protocal, port, helper program (hp-setup, cups local webpage etc..) and nothing. I have the printer shared.

why connecting to a network printer in the same OS and version would take so much work?

Also we're all on the same network, & subnet with no filtering or firewalling in between the boxes.

*resolved* After trying everything else I restarted cups on the box the printer is attached and everything mysteriously works.

CentOS 5 :: Unable To Install Brother Network Printer

Dec 14, 2009

I'm trying to install Brother DL-5250DN laser network printer. I have read the manual at [URL] and also I have searched the forum but I didn't find a solution yet. The problem is that I don't know what is the printer type that I have to select. None of the description really match for this printer. It is a printer which is directly connected to the network and *not* to a Linux or Windows machine. The only type that matches is AppSocket/HP JetDirect. I tried to cinfigure it with CUPS but it doesn't work. After I type the password nothing happens.
