Fedora Hardware :: Print To A Printer That Is Connected To A Router Wirelessly?
Jul 17, 2011
Linux and I have trying to get my Fedora 15 (x86 64bit) on my laptop to print to an Epson Stylus NX515 printer/scanner. I have the printer connected to a router through a wireless connection. I have other computers that are on the network that are Windows based and they of course are printing/Scanning just fine. The printer is located in a different room. I have been searching for a solution but non that explains how to install a printer driver for one that is connected to a router wirelessly.
I have an HP deskjet f4580 and I downloaded hplip and the printer prints when its plugged into the usb but not wirelessly. And I noticed an hp setup adhoc on my network connections but I couldnt get on it. I'm nearly certain its something I am missing just don't know what..? and I have Ubuntu 11.04
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.
I have a rather ancient HP LaserJet printer that was working fine in fedora 14, but when I upgraded to Fedora 15, I can no longer get this printer to work. The printer's front panel reads "LaserJet 5P", but when I print out a test page, it's a "LaserJet 5MP". The printer is connected to my computer's parallel port, and it's capable of understanding PostScript, and I usually don't have any problems printing to it under various operating systems.
The following error comes and goes under the KDE print manager: "Printer 'LaserJet_5P' may not be connected." CUPS reports the following printer state: "Processing - Printer not connected; will retry in 30 seconds..."
I have double-checked that my printer is indeed powered on and connected. And the following lines appear in the error log: W [29/May/2011:18:03:02 -0700] no access to /System/Library/ColorSync/Profiles/sRGB Profile.icc W [29/May/2011:18:03:02 -0700] no access to /System/Library/ColorSync/Profiles/sRGB Profile.icc W [29/May/2011:18:03:02 -0700] no access to /System/Library/ColorSync/Profiles/Generic CMYK Profile.icc W [29/May/2011:18:03:02 -0700] failed to CreateProfile: org.freedesktop.ColorManager.Failed:profile object path '/org/freedesktop/ColorManager/profiles/LaserJet_5P_Gray__' already exists .....
The first three warnings are regarding file paths that one would expect in an Apple OSX system. The "bad request" error is troublesome, because it indicates that either my browser or some configuration software on my system is sending garbage to CUPS. The last two errors occurred when I tried to use the KDE print configuration tool, which was not smart enough to ask me for the root password, which CUPS needs. By the way, the device URI is "parallel:/dev/lp0". Is this still the correct URI?
a newbe one, but its if my fifth try in using ubuntu for working with Architecture, so... my problem is...I have a plotter (xerox 2230ij) connected in a print server, i tryed to connect in lpt1 port and was sucessful with HP 750 plus driver... so.. yay! but my original intend is to connect in print server and all the computers (windows/ubuntu) use that.But when i connect in PS, i cant see the plotter, but i can acess the PS (Dlink)so.. what i have to do, to make thing working well? and i have virtualbox with windows XP, can XP acess that plotter as well?here a small scheme of my connections...
I had previously been having loads of problems getting my wireless printer to work with Linux [http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1453697]. Everything is working fine now. However, something that confused me is that whenever I tried to ping the printer _before_ I got it working, it would fail with a _different_ IP address. That is, the command 'ping x.y.z.3' would fail with a message saying it was unable to contact 'x.y.z.2'
Now I am looking at my router - for something unrelated - and I've noticed that rogue IP address shows up in the list of connected devices. It has a MAC address but for the device name it lists "<unknown>". Should I be concerned about this? how to figure out what this device is?
I have a desktop PC running Ubuntu 9.10 and Windows 7, and a Eee PC 701 laptop running EasyPeasy Ubuntu 9.04. I'd like to connect the desktop to the laptop with a wired connection (eth0), then the laptop to my ADSL router using wireless (ath0).
I have a crossover ethernet cable (I bought on ebay). I have set up my laptop with a static IP address on my LAN and it uses OpenDNS.
I have added this to /etc/sysctl.conf on the laptop:
This is a variation on what I found on other sites describing how to set up a router. I don't understand iptables very well, but I gather that the above two lines should set up forwarding so that traffic from my router to the laptop will be forwarded to the desktop, and vice versa.
But this doesn't work. The connection doesn't even establish between the laptop and the desktop.
how this is pulled off - when you click "Print" on a computer, and the result comes out of a printer connected to some other computer on a LAN, what goes on? I would like to know this at the deep *hacker* level, and also how to do this in Linux alone, i.e. without Samba or whatever - that is, without Windoze.
I am unable to connect to my printer wirelessly. I get this: Idle - "Connecting to printer..." The computer never connects. I can print a configuration report and get the ip address. If I type that in a webrowser, I get an error: unable to connect. Even if I plug the printer into the computer by a usb, I am unable to access the printer's ip address in the webrowser. I'm not sure how to proceed on getting the printer working wirelessly. It is a hp 6940 I use the HP Deskjet 6940 Series hpijs, 3.10.2rc1.9 driver. I have only recently been having printer problems. The printer has been hooked up on the same network for years. It still prints via usb.
I am not able to get wireless internet working on Ubuntu 10.04. I have a Wireless PCI card, Netgear WG311v2.I can't connect to the router, even though I downloaded the Windows drivers using Ndiswrapper.
Just installed drivers for Lexmark pro200 - S500 series. However although it is recognised by the system and has a tick by its name, And tells me it is connected via usb file goes to print que but will not print. Also tells me it is Printing - localhost! is this correct?.
I have a Samsung TV that can be and is connected via DLNA with my XP machines wirelessly. There is NO WAY I can make it see my Ubuntu machine though.I have the 10.04 and I have tried almost all the available programs for this OS.Name it and I have tried it: Mediatomb,ushare, PS3MediaServer and others that I cannot recall right now.These programs are installed with no errors and they look like they run correctly, their web interfaces work fine but that's all.None of them has been ever found by the TV,-but it can see the native Samsung program PC Share runnning on the XPs.What's the problem with my Ubuntu system and it cannot be recognised by the TV?It's not that it won't play this or that file. It's that it won't see the server AT ALL.
I am using an HP dm3 1030us laptop. The wireless adapter is and Atheros 5009. I have a fresh and clean install of Ubuntu Natty in it. I am trying to connect to a Linksys WRT54G2 that is in G mode using WPA2 Personal with AES. Router info:

I am running openSUSE 11.2 and just recently my network has been down. I'm using Gnome, but using Yast to configure my network (I'm usually forced to use wireless as I travel a lot on my laptop). Usually, when I'm connected to a wireless network, it will show up as so in the Gnome start menu, but recently, it will only say Wired there, even though I have nothing connected to my ethernet jack. I can connect wirelessly to a home router, but cannot use the wireless in any other way. I have tried manually disabling the ethernet connection to no avail. Unfortunately I am limited in my linux knowledge, so I am kinda stuck here.
I just installed Fedora Core on my Dell Inpsiron B130 laptop and I am having trouble connecting to the internet both wirelessly and with an ethernet cord into the router. When trying to configure my network, I dont recognize any of the ethernet adapters in the drop down list. I have been told that my wireless card is Linux compatible (dell y8029 dell wireless 1370 802.11/a/b/g mini pci). My ethernet card is a B130 Broadcom Ethernet Driver which isnt in the drop down menu either.
I read that I need to download an ndiswrapper but I dont know where to find this download AND even if I could download it to a zipdribe, I have trouble opening a USB flash in Linux becuase its not a "valid block device". This is after the command "mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/usbflash"
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.
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....?
I am running F15 Beta i686 (Gnome3) Desktop on a dual-core, 4 Mb DDR2 system. I already installed hplip and hpijs drivers and connected HP LaserJet 5MP printer to the parallel port of my PC. Set up was by running "system-config-printer", adding device URI=parallel:/dev/lp0, and selecting approriate driver (CUPS+Gutenprint (en) for the printer. However, when I chose to print a test page, nothing came out and the printer window says the printer is not connected. This is even though I can print from Fedora14 installed on the same PC.
I am using a Toshiba Satellite with an HP Officejet7410. I installed the printer last night, printed a test page and went to bed smiling. This morning, I try to print and nothing. Fedora see the printer, but keeps saying it is paused or is not connected. The test page printed out the following.

Yesterday I installed FC13.i636, Gnome 2.30.0, on my Dell Latitude D505 laptop. Fresh install from live CD, single partition. Installed all 400+ recommended updates last night. System is working *very* smoothly.I want to print (wireless connection) to my Canon MP160 printer, which is attached to my WinXP machine, and is set as a Shared printer in WinXP. I can print to it fine with my iBook.I used the System/Admin/Printing app to set up a networked printer, letting the app "find" the printer. Printer now shows in the app as:
I choose the appropriate driver and tried a test page. Test page job results in queue showing job "processing" but nothing comes from printer, even ten minutes later. Printer properties show:
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.
my 64 bit XP/fedora 12 box prints fine to a shared printer when I am in XP. The HP color lasterjet CP1215 printer is hosted by a 32 bit vista machine. I can located the printer on the network from Fedora 12 using the add a pinter utility, but I cannot print. I get no error message on the linux machine, but the "submitted " dialog box never goes away (not sure if it is supposed to go away). On the vista machine in the printers dialog box it says "remote downlevel document" in the document name section and "0kb" in the size section, then goes away. the printer does not make any noise.
I am trying to set up printing on my Fedora 14 laptop, on my home network.
- Home network, single subnet, the desktops are connected to the switch portion of my Linksys via Ethernet and all have static addresses. Name resolution between them is via hosts file entries. The router is running wireless (WPA2/AES/DHCP) to accommodate my laptop which is dual boot XP Pro and Linux Fedora 14.
- The printer is an HP Deskjet F4180 printer. It is attached via USB to a Windows XP Pro box and shared. The XP box is wired and static ip.
- I am able to see all the shares and print to the shared printer from any of the Windows boxes, wired and wireless, including my laptop when I run Windows on it.
- My Fedora 14 is working fine on wireless, using Network Manager and KDE desktop. I am able to access all the Windows shares on both of my wired desktops. One desktop is XP Pro, the other is Windows 7.
This is what happens when I try to set up printing on Fedora:
- I go to Administration / Printing and click to Add a Printer. - I am prompted for the root password twice, which I put in. - I select Network Printer / Windows printer via samba and click on Browse... - It finds my WORKGROOUP and machine name mig29 and prompts for user ID and password which I type in.
the user ID and logon on Fedora is different from the one on Windows. During setup I am prompted for credentials. It seems to me that somewhere down the line Fedora supplies not the credentials I supply but my local user ID and password and it obviously fails.
my net worked HP printer will not print-broken pipe - this started after I had to switch off the printer at the mains in order to attend to a paper jam. Now it will not print apart from a test page. I am using Fedora 10 and the device info is "hp:/net/Officejet_Pro_L7500?ip=192.168.0.4"
I have a FC12 machine installed with CUPS and a CUPS-PDF printer. Printer are shared and works fine with this URL:
I have both client machine Windows XP and Windows 7. Both has setup the above printer and print fine without any problem. I can get the PDF file from windows test print. The only problem is I face is wait for around 20 seconds for printer dialog prompt out when I press print button in Windows 7. However, my windows XP never t have this problem. The printer dialog prompt out immediately when I press print button.
F13 showing that Canon s100 printer is founded, installed drivers and everything seems to be OK. But when i try to print text, testpage of what ever, nothing happened. Installed system-config-printer 1.2.4-1.f13, same udev and libs. Cups 1:188.8.131.52.f13, libraries, php modules Here is the Error msg:
I am using F14 Laughlin on my laptop HP Compaq6715b AMD turion 64x2. Installation went fine, only problem is with printer LQ680 24pin series. It is not a real problem that printer want print, it just want print 10 or 15 or 20 pages from tractor bin. I get message: '/usr/lib/cups/filter/rastertoepson failed. It stopped printing after every page, send message, I have to cancel error message, then I can print again. All this is happened if I try to print one by one page from front of printer, I just have to print page with command <ctrl>P.
I've recently installed F15 LXDE RC from the livecd and connected my USB Brother All-In-One MFC-5440cn printer. After following the Brother installation page, the Cups & LPR drivers are installed but when I'm in the cups page (http://localhost:631/admin), the printer will not print a test page or print from any application. The LCD panel on the printer does show 'receiving data' but nothing comes out. The last version of Fedora I had running was F13 and the same printer worked fine.
Are there any other printer drivers I need to install besides the Brothers? The printer does show up in the Print Manager but nothing prints. I did have this same type of issue with Mageia Beta 1 and ended up installing a2ps, which wasn't included in the original print drivers, and it is now printing. So I had to install a2ps with F15 but still no print output. Something must have changed with the recent distros causing this. After looking at the output of dmesg I see this:
Code: WARNING! power/level is deprecated; use power/control instead [14.867397] udev-configure-printer: add /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:13.2/usb1/1-3/1-3.2/1-3.2:1.0 [14.867991] udev-configure-printer: parent devpath is /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:13.2/usb1/1-3/1-3.2 [14.869115] udev-configure-printer: Device vendor/product is 04F9:016D [14.880470] udev-configure-printer: MFG:Brother MDL:MFC-5440CN SERN:- serial:BROM5F412304 [14.880520] usbcore: registered new interface driver usblp [15.902920] udev-configure-printer: failed to connect to CUPS server; giving up .....
Any idea why it's failing to connect to Cups or any idea how to find out? Is it possible to have too many USB devices connected? I'm using a 4 port usb hub in use and also using a usb mouse/keyboard connected.
