I installed lexmark S305 following the guide from dave66, posted here [URL].. but the printer doesn't work. Every time a new job is in the queue, it fails to print. Basically the error reported is E [13/Mar/2010:20:33:20 +0100] [Job 2] Job stopped due to filter errors; please consult the error_log file for details. Here I uploaded my error_log from cups: [URL].. I have Debian unstable, kernel 2.6.32-trunk-amd64 and cups 1.4.2-9.1.
After I solved the issue about printer, now I'm struggling to make the integrated scanner of lexmark S305 work with debian.The device is connected to the network through integrated wifi connection (it is NOT connected with usb to a host, which act as a server), but I don't know how xsane can recognize it.I have just added the ip address in /etc/sane.d/net.conf, but it doesn't work at all. I read some tutorials on how to configure a network scanner, but they are all related to a scanner connected to a computer through usb, and then shared on the network by this computer.The second issue (probably more important) is that xsane probably doesn't recognize even with usb connection the scanner. The latter is not listed in the supported scanner list. Indeed connecting by usb to my laptop, it doesn't work. I haven't found any driver for it, but probably it could work with driver of other scanners.
I am a total noob, don't know anything about installing tar based software into my Ubuntu 10.4 set up (a Dell desktop previously running XP). I want to install a driver for my Lexmark Impact s305 multipurpose machine, using the driver the Lexmark site recommended, but have been completely unsuccessful.
Here's the software by name. lexmark-inkjet-legacy-1.0-1.i386.deb.sh.tar.gz. I extracted after right clicking on the icon, and that produced this file: lexmark-inkjet-legacy-1.0-1.i386.deb.sh. I launched that, got past the license agreement, and came up to a screen that said I needed root privileges and asked for an "administrative password."
I only have one password and entered that. It always works installing software via Synaptic or the Ubuntu Software Center, and everywhere else. Nevertheless, in trying to install this driver, I got this error message: "incorrect password." I have been unable to get around this despite repeated efforts. The installer software simply won't accept my password and so it won't install the driver.
In researching the issue, I have seen other people complain of the same problem. Given that I am a noob at this, have I missed something critical to the install? Does the software just not work (I have heard Lexmark is not too keen on Linux)?
I have a dell e5500 laptop, 2GHz ram 80gig hard drive dual boot linux and win xp pro. a new lexmark s305 printer can not get driver to work from lexmark web site. printer works fine with xp.pro, don't do anything with ubuntu 10.x
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 :
I [10/Nov/2015:09:44:51 +0000] Saving job.cache... I [10/Nov/2015:09:44:52 +0000] Listening to [v1.::1]:631 (IPv6) I [10/Nov/2015:09:44:52 +0000] Listening to 127.0.0.1:631 (IPv4) I [10/Nov/2015:09:44:52 +0000] Listening to /var/run/cups/cups.sock (Domain)
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.
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 trying to set up a print server here on a Squeeze system using the stock debian CUPS package. It seems that since Apple has bought this package, it has caused me nothing but grief. I have set up two different USB printers with raw print queues, and every time I send a print job to either of them, the job disappears into thin air, with no error output. In fact, when I look at the queue, it says the job was completed successfully. I look at the logs, and there is no output indicating any issues. Just for kicks, I reconfigured one of the printers to use a linux driver, and it printed just fine (a little slow, but fine). I set it back to raw, and the jobs disappear again into oblivion.
I have done this many times in the past, and never had any issues -- I even had this very same printer set up that way about a year ago, and it worked great. The only noteworthy thing that seems to have changed is that there are no longer any files called "mime.types" and "mime.convs". It seems they have been replaced by "raw.types" and "raw.convs". The contents of these two files are as follows:
Canon PIXMA MX492, installed drivers from Canon page a few weeks ago, printed test page just fine, printed a few pages after that.
This week I reinstalled Jessie, but with net install instead of live USB. Installed drivers from Canon, it all looks the same.
Localhost: 631 says print job complete, but nothing ever prints. Printer doesn't respond at all. Where print spool is going. I can't figure out what I missed. The install was so simple last time and it should have been the same.
The net install seemed to fix drawing tablet drivers, maybe broke printing somehow? Updated kernel for graphics firmware, but same version as a few days ago.
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.

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 have installed ubuntu on my desktop. The speed is so good that i want to keep it. The only problem I can see just now is that I can not set up may printer. It is a Lexmark X2670 all in one. Any ides how to print with this from ubuntu OS?
Lexmark Z730 Series printer. I know it's an old model but I'd like it to work with my Ubuntu 9.04. Is there a way , technically, of configuring it manually, using a set of commands...some guerilla tactics method...to get it to print. I've searched high and low for the Ubuntu version of its drivers, but in vain.
I am running Ubuntu 10.04. I am trying to print on a Lexmark 9300 series printer connected to a Windows XP machine. I am able to print on an HP Laserjet 5P printer connected to a Windows 7 machine just fine.
We are running RHEL 5.1 on the 22.214.171.124 kernel. We are attempting to pass print jobs to a Lexmark printer with the lp -o landscape command. The print jobs continue to print "portrait". Is anyone aware of this issue and is there a work-around to get these print jobs to print in landscape format?

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 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.
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.
