Debian :: Canon Printer - Lp0 - "Printer Not Connected -- Check Your Connection"
Jul 31, 2011
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've bought a HP Photosmart printer, HP Photosmart wireless e-All-in-One printer - B110a and i've got a problem installing it properly. I'm using Debian 6.0 Squeeze. When i connect the printer, Debian doesn't recognize my printer as the Photosmart B109 printer for unknown reason. When i go to the site of HP and search for a driver, it directs me to this site:I've downloaded that latest hplip file as a .run file and installed it. My printer is recognized proparly, but when i try to print a colored image, it comes out black/white. Something is not crrect. Does anyone recognize this problem with this type HP printer?
I have the printer Canon i-SENSYS LBP6020. I followed the instructions from the site URL....There are no errors, but when I try to print, nothing comes out of the printer.My system is: Debian GNU/Linux 8 (jessie)Here is some debugging information:
Error log while printing from a CANON LBP6020: URL.... Troubleshooting information while printing from CANON LBP6020: URL....
My purpose is to be able to use Canon printers with my debian jessie system (installed via netinst iso).
I have read this wiki page but unfortunately it is a little old. I still have followed/adapted the instructions there but it fails on my system on step 6. I will explain below.
Latest Canon drivers in the official website is v3.10. US version of it can be obtained from here.
When I try to install .deb package in the driver file archive I get following output:
Code: Select allsudo dpkg -i cndrvcups-ufr2-us_3.00-1_amd64.deb [sudo] password for ert: Selecting previously unselected package cndrvcups-ufr2-us. (Reading database ... 155527 files and directories currently installed.) Preparing to unpack cndrvcups-ufr2-us_3.00-1_amd64.deb ... Unpacking cndrvcups-ufr2-us (3.00-1) ...
And the next thing I tried:
Code: Select allsudo apt-get install cndrvcups-common [sudo] password for ert: Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Package cndrvcups-common is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source. However the following packages replace it:
E: Package 'cndrvcups-common' has no installation candidate
I'm setting up a netbook for somebody (in another country!) and one of the last hurdles is the printer setup. I only have the netbook and not the printer with me. I know that the printer is a HP PSC 1215 All-In-One Printer but there seems to be a Catch-22 that I need to have the printer connected in order to be able to set this up using the GUI tools. How do I work around this? As a minimum I just want to enable printing, although scanning would be a bonus.
I dist-upgraded my Debian unstable and 'cups' removed the official drivers ('cndrvcups-common_2.00-2_i386' and 'cndrvcups ufr2-uk_2.00-2_i386'). Well, now my network Canon i-SENSYS MF4120 multifunctional printer/scanner doesn't work and the drivers can't be installed back
Using Squeeze and a Canon Pixma IP4600 Printer. The color on the printed pages used to be true and now it isn't, it still print is color just not the correct colors.I am color deficient or color challenged (what used to be called color blind) which dosen't mean I can't tell the difference between what is on the screen and what is printed It's not the printer as I have tested it with other Linux and a windows system and it's good.
is it possible to install a netwerk printer, while not connected to the netwerk where the printer is?I installed opensuse on my sisters desktop and I want to install the printer that she and my parents are using at home. 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 currently cannot get my printer to work (nothing ever get's printed) even though CUPS seems to be correctly configured and reports all jobs as "completed" without any errors. As I know that my printer works (I can print from my laptop on it) I currenty suspect my new PC's parallel port to maybe have a hardware issue. My question is now is there any way to check the parallel port?
Here are some details: from dmesg: lp0: using parport0 (interrupt-driven). from lsmod: parport 27954 3 ppdev,lp,parport_pc
In the BIOS the mode is set to EPP. So as far I can see (I am not really an expert) the kernel-modules are there, /dev/lp0 exists and has the proper permissions. Yet doing 'echo -en " Hello f" >/dev/lp0' does not produce any Putout on my printer that is connected via the parallel port.
I'm using Debian squeeze and for an assignement, i have create 2 virtual pdf cups printers. Both are working very well. To test the different administion command; i try to disable one of the printer and move his queue file to the second one. I'm able to do it easily.
Now, i wish to write a bash script that wil test the status of the printer. So that,if the printer is disable, it just execute the "move" script. Is there a way to know the status of a cups printer and use that information in a script?
For example, a command/function that can return "O" is the cups printer is enable and "1" if not.
I am a new convert to Fedora with very little knowledge of Linux in general. I have managed to install Fedora 11 on my Advent 8315 laptop and I have wireless connection via my Belkin Wireless N modem router. I have always been able to setup Windows networking successfully but Fedora is much more complex, using terminology that I am not familiar with. What I need to do to achieve networking with my Windows computer? I especially want to network to my Canon printer which is connected to the Windows PC.
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.
Been using ubnutu gnome for a loooong time and my printer (Canon MX340) has been running just fine, configuration and usage.
I now switch to kde. configure my printer the same way i would under gnome and as soon as i send a job, it processes for about 3 seconds and just marks "stopped" under status. nothing goes through anymore!!
i've updated from 4.5 to 4.6 with backports and nothing is happening on there either.
im running maverick amd64 and using the i386 drivers (with dpkg -i --force-all) which are still recognized even under kde.
p.s.: the printer normally runs as wireless standalone (no samba/cups involvment whatsoever)
i am running T43 Thinkpad box with Ubuntu 11.04. we have a canon network printer model i-SENSYS MF4570dn printer, and i am trying to install the UFR II driver which i downloaded from canon website. the problem i am facing is that when i install the driver with gdebi i receive error message saying: Dependency is not satisfiable: gs-esp.i tried to install ge-eps but it is not part of the repository for 11.04
Is there a way to print from a Canon MX 330 All-in-One printer in Ubuntu 9.04? I'm trying to print through a Linksys WRT54G router. The printer is physically connected to a Desktop PC running Windows Vista (64-bit).I've tried installing the printer though CUPS to no avail. I tried the iP4600, iP3600 and iP2600 drivers and none of them have worked for me. I've even tried the Gutenprint PIXMA IP4600 drivers.
I have done a fresh install of Ubuntu 8.04 on my partners desktop PC and am attempting to get her printer working, so far no luck. Ubuntu does not list a specific driver for this printer in 8.04 Printer is a Canon laserjet model L1112E according to the label on the printer itself but the printed instruction leaflet calls it a LBP 3000.Canon website offers a linux driver for lbp3000.
I am one of the many people who are having many problems getting the Canon ip1700 pixma printer to work with Linux. I think that it can be done. I've followed every step that I could on this page: [URL] Everything goes fine until I enter the username and password on CUPS, using my "root" and my root password. I get this annoying google chrome thing, "aw, snap, this page can't load..." I really need to use my printer.
I have just installed OpenSuse 11.4 on my old desktop Compaq Presario, I coming from an amount of experience with Linux, anyway, for the moment I have a problem with my printer connected on a domestic network, this printer have an assigned address as the same as for my desktop and all other devices of this network, but I'm not able to connect with it, if I try to connect the printer by USB I haven't no problem, more strange is because of the printer have got a scanner and I was able to connect it via network, the same problem I had with Ubuntu.
after looking around for hours, i finally gave up and decided to write this post. I need to know exactly what to do to get my canon mx860 printer connected to ubuntu wireless. ive tried nearly everything, but nothing really makes sense and it just doesn't work.
I would like to know if it is possible to configure my laptop so that it can print wirelessly on my MP800r canon printer, and if so then how to configure them to make this operation possible. I'm using Ubuntu.
