I have a Samsung ML-1430 laser printer connected to my Fedora 12 box. I downloaded the appropriate Linux driver tar file from the Samsung website. After extracting the tar file into a directory called image, the following took place:
This generates a "Linux Printer Package Setup" pop-up screen.
The following error messages occur after I process the pop-up screen which specifies a default install path [/usr/local/linuxprinter] and asks me to check an "Install CUPS 1.1" box and a "Begin Install" box.
This is my first attempt with Yum and Fedora for that matter. I need to load a print driver and network driver for an MX860 printer. I downloaded the drivers and they are in the download folder. When I try to install I get what is below. How do I resolve? Do I need to identify where the driver is? If so, how?

This post is for an HP parallel printer but I think it should work for at least "some" other parallel printers.I am sure that someone smarter than me will follow up this post with a "well, just do this and that" and you will have your HP Laserjet 6P printer ready to go, but since questions litter the forums of MANY distros on how to get "at least" an HP parallel printer to work, I'll post this anyway.This may or may not work for you if you do not have an HP but you can try it.The install printer box will let you do an install for an HP Parallel and it asks for how it is to talk to it, through CUPS sock or "local host'. When we get through what I recommend you should chose "local host".
Anyone know where I can get a driver for that printer? I checked HP website and they don't make a driver for Fedora -- only MS-Windows and MAC. So how do I send something to that printer which is connected via USB cabel ?
I am running Fedora 13 and KDE 4.5.5 (approximately). My video card is an ATI Radeon HD 5750. I have been having problems with the drivers for this card (as described here), having tried both the open-source driver and the proprietary ATI driver.
Recently I tried to install the new Catalyst 11.2 from ATI. In the process I broke something. Now when I boot, Fedora cannot load KDE. It reaches the screen with a progress bar at the bottom and "Fedora 13" in the lower right corner. The progress bar fills and becomes all white, then the system stalls. (I can boot into a command-line, though.)
I have had this problem once before. Last time I got it working again by following Fenrin's instructions in this thread. This time it does not work.
How can I get KDE back and running, using either the proprietary or the open-source driver?
How can I install Samsung's ML-1710 printer driver? I've already tried using Samsung's "Unified Linux Driver" from their website. Unfortunately, it does not work; while the installation program claims to "install" the needed driver, all attempts (including local) to print using that ML-1710 printer & printer driver set fail.
It's noteworthy that I can print on the ML-1710 printer, over the network, from both windows and other Linux (Ubuntu) workstations.
if there is a printer driver that will drive a Lexmark c540n laser printer? I have had a look on the Lexmark web site and could find no drivers for Fedora. Would a driver for, say, Red Hat function with this printer?
I am totally new to Linux and have a PC here with 128 MB Ram and a 10 GB HDD. It has Windows Millenium installed but I presume this will be wiped during the install process if I so wish.,
I am part way through the install using CD's and have just chosen my required alnguage and then keyboard layout. The next option is asking me to choose what device drivers to load and most appear to be HDD Drivers. I haven't a clue what to choose here?
I downloaded the full install of Fedora 10. I burned the DVD and it booted okay. Going through the startup stuff, select language, keyboard, ect and then I choose the dvd as the source of the image. Then I get "no driver found" and gives me the option to choose from a list of drivers or to use a driver disk. I saw something in the forums about someone having the same problem but theirs was a video card issue. On the list of drivers it looks like they are network card drivers. I have no idea what to do. I am using a NVIDIA Geforce FX 5500 if that helps. I also did not verify the iso, though wouldn't it not boot at all if the iso image was broken?
I known the Driver Disk can be loaded by anaconda when specifying the 'dd=xx' parameter. But how should I do if I still want to use these drivers which are included in the Driver Disk in an up running Operating System?
I have not a real environment to test it, but looks like the driver modules in the Driver Disk won't be installed into the real installed system. Am I right? Are there some tools which can load Driver Disk in a up running Operating System?
Something went wrong with my video driver to the point that the X will not load any more. I am using my live CD. Is there a way to back up all my prefs and software installs, so I do not have to reset it all up after re-installing.
I have a Nvidia 275GTX and I installed the nvidia drivers via RPM fusion and blacklisted Nouveau as instructed by a guide online that I see matches the one on these forums. When my system boots up now instead of having the cool blue screen with the fedora logo in the middle that loads up I get a black screen with a bar at the bottom that says Fedora 15 to the right and the bar fills up blue and white. It looks like 8 bit Nintendo. Did I do something wrong? Is there a way to get the nice Fedora 15 load screen back?
I recently had problems with my HP printer in Fedora 12, where as I never had a problem with it in any other distrubution.... For some reason, the HPLIP driver in the repo doesn't work correctly... I don't know why... but I kept getting errors with "error: Printer queue setup failed. Please restart CUPS and try again."
I tried every suggestion I found... which was installing extra dependencies, disabling firewall, disabling SELinux and a whole bunch of other stuff... but nothing worked... THEN finally I decided to use the HPLIP driver from the HP website... it was a .run file... and I executed it, and my printer has worked perfect eversince..... my question is.... has anybody successfully installed their hp printer from the hplip driver in the repo's..??? I don't know why it didn't work for me, and i've seen other fedora users complain of the same thing? maybe theres something wrong with the package? or its not pulling in a needed dependency? I don't know...
I'm trying to add my Samsung SCX4500W printer to my opensuse 11.2 machine running KDE.From Yast->Printer->Add printerI am able to set the printer up, however there is no driver for my specific network printer. Samsung does provide a linux driver but I have no idea what I'm doing when installing peripherals on linux basically
Installed Natty on a Windows machine via a dual boot. Two issues arising: 1 Brother HL-2040 printer just spits out all the paper without printing anything. I checked the printer application. It correctly identified the printer as HL-2040 but loaded the "recommended" HL-2060 driver. I noticed from my searches that others have had this problem but I don't understand whether (or how) they fixed it.
2 Loaded Gramps onto the "new" install (via Synaptic). Exported my Gramps file from another machine onto an external drive and tried to import the file to the new install. Tried opening Gramps to see if it would attempt to import the file, but there didn't seem to be a selection to recover the backup nor did it seem to be visible to the program. Also tried selecting the backup file and "Open with Gramps" - didn't work either. Also unloaded and reloaded Gramps via Synaptic but no change.
I have a HP Officejct Pro 8000 Printer hooked to UBUNTU 9.10 on a system 76 box. The printer is not loading paper properly. I see references to this issue on various websites and I saw at least one reference to new drivers but alas they were all for windows. I checked the repository and I have the latest and greatest HPLIP. Does this mean I have all of the latest drivers?
ok my printer is a "hp deskjet f4240 all in one" my OS is Ubuntu 8.04i have installed many hp drivers that say they work in ubuntu and work for that printer. but they wont work. my printer however is found. this problem only happend after i reinstalled ubuntu.
I am currently using ubuntu 10.10 and trying to install the current driver for a lexmark x2600 printer. I retrieved the driver from the lexmark site, to be specific the debian version. Once I had the driver unzipped I was able to run the program to start installing it. However the problem is that it requires root privileges in order to install. So I input my admin password to allow the install. Apparently the password I use is not correct even though it is the admin/root password on my system.
I have a problem with a bad entry in my system-config-printer on my notebook computer which I think is interfering with my ability to print. I run fedora 10 on several systems in my house. On one desktop, I have a printer hosted which I think I have successfully setup for wireless network sharing (an HP895) using IPP.My problem seems to be a bad entry in my system-config-printer on my notebook computer which seems to stall when I try to print from applications (Firefox for example.) on the notebook. If I open up "Printing", I have 3 printers listed... one of them is for when the printer is attached directly to the notebook, one of them is the working printer description "printer" and the 3d is the bad entry. If I click on the bad entry to try to delete it, I don't have that option, but If I try to look at the "properties" for that entry, system-config-printer stalls (as do other applications when the printing dialog box starts up, and I have to force them to shut down.)
I will attach some screenshots and a copy of my /etc/cups/printers.conf file.How do I get rid of this "bad entry" in the system-config-printers GUI ? It doesn't seem to exist in the printers.conf file.
I am fairly new to ubuntu having just dumped my winxp and put ubuntu 9.10 desktop on my Dell Inspiron 6400.I thought most things were not too bad. A few challenges, lots of things to learn. I have wine installed for some windows programmes I need and I am running winxp under virtualbox for some other things that are too hard under ubuntu.
But the biggest challenge so far has been printing.One of the printers I print to is a Toshiba estudio 232 photocopier and I need to do some fairly complex printing to it - one of the more complex being booklet printing.The windows printer drivers for the Toshiba have a swathe of configurable items that make it all work reasonably well and the driver is a snack to install.
But the dramas I have had trying to get it running under ubuntu have been taxing.After a lot of mucking around I finally managed to get ubuntu to use a Toshiba ppd instead of the generic one (I hope I am using the correct terminology) and I finally have access to some options. Not anywhere near the number of options under windows and in a far, far less friendly format but some progress at least.However not enough progress for the printing needs I have so I still have to use winxp under virtualbox to print the documents.Has anyone else experienced these dramas and is there any good answers?
