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?

example
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 :: 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.

Networking :: Can't Print From Windows 7 - Samba Printer Share

Aug 30, 2010

I'm giving up in ever hoping that I'll get printing working with windows 7 with the strange comments I've found on the net. Basically I have a samsung ML2240 printer shared on the network, everything can print to it fine except for my windows 7 laptop. It's shared via Samba.

Quote:

Once you have extracted the driver files, copy the 32-bit drivers to the /usr/share/cups/drivers directory and the 64-bit drivers to the /usr/share/cups/drivers/x64 directory exactly as named below:

[Windows 2000 and higher]
ps5ui.dll
pscript.hlp
pscript.ntf
pscript5.dll

However after checking this, I dont have the files named within int he correct folder on my windows system :

%WINDIR%SYSTEM32SPOOLDRIVERSX643 folder for 64-bit drivers.I've tried installing the printer via the windows installer, however this adds the driver then tells me its not working and fails to print. I really dont know where to turn with this one. I've tried installing the samsung supplied drivers from the website. However they still fail to connect.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Printer Installed But Wont Print?

Jun 20, 2010

I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 on a laptop in a wireless system at home. It's all working fine. I can browse the internet without any difficulties. The problem is that I cannot print to my HP Laserjet 1022nw. The IP for the printer is 192.168.2.2 and I can reach it (and print) from my windows machine. But, if I use the laptop it cannot reach the server at 192.168.2.2 and all print jobs freeze. It's odd because I used the Ubuntu network printer install AppSocket/HP JetDirect connection and it found the printer at socket://192.168.2.2:9100 and installed the correct Foomatic driver. But now the browser cannot get to 192.168.2.2 and it wont print. What am I missing?

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:

mfc295cnlpr-1.1.2.i386-1.deb
mfc295cncupswrapper-1.1.2-2.i386.deb
brscan3-0.2.11-4.i386.deb
brscan-skey-0.2.1-3.i386.deb

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.

Ubuntu Networking :: 10.04 - How To Print From Guest Win 95 Machine

Aug 1, 2010

My knowledge of networks is very limited. I have googled and googled how to print to cups from Windows. I have Ubuntu 10.04 installed and have a win 95 installed as a guest machine in Virtualbox. I have found hundreds of articles similar to this: [URL]. Every article talks about cups print server's ip address, which always seems to begin with 192.168. I'm not sure I have understood what the print server IP address is. Is it the same as the IP address I get every time I start my computer? In that case it would be problematic since it's a new address every time. If it's not the same, how can I find out the ip address of the cups.

Ubuntu Networking :: Cups Client-error-not-possible When Attempting To Print Or Add Printer

Jun 17, 2010

I noticed that a bit after I had updated Ubuntu 10.04 through the Update Manager, I couldn't print at all! (I run ubuntu 10.04 on my laptop and have a networked HP Officejet 6110xi all-in-one printer connected to a comp running Windows XP home on the same LAN). Everything works when I boot up in windows vista, so the problem is definitely in Ubuntu.

First, I checked the printer jobs and it said that there was an error with a filter or something. Restarting the job didn't do squat, so I decided to try reinstalling my printer, but get the same CUPS error "error-client-not-possible" right after I click "Apply". I then Googled the issue but didn't find much of anything, so I thought I'd try reinstalling CUPS. No luck there either... Same error again and again.

Ubuntu :: Numbers To Put In Linux Machine Can Connect / Print To Windows Machine?

Apr 16, 2011

I remember it being really easy to add a printer attached to another computer using Ubuntu, but I don't remember exactly what made it so easy. All I know is that now that I have switched to Kubuntu the process has become much harder because now I have to find out some special locations, numbers etc. for it to connect to the printer. It's connected to a Windows XP machine on the other side of the house.
It says alot about 'contacting the network administrator' if I am unsure about what to put in. But I am more or less the network administrator. how to find out what numbers to put in so that my Linux machine can connect and print to the Windows machine? Or maybe someone knows a few commands to share? I go to Applications > Settings > System settings, Printer configuration, New Printer, New Network printer, and then there are a few options but I don't know which one to choose. Windows Printer via Samba, I guess? Then in the box that says smb://[enter stuff here] I need to put in info but I don't know how to find that info.

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.

Networking :: Setup Network Printer To Combination Machine

Apr 11, 2010

I have two Linux machines both running Debian (I do not want Windows to be involved at all). One is a desktop and one is a laptop. I desire to connect a not-yet-purchased printer/scanner combination machine only to the internal LAN via my router (Linksys WRT54G) via Ethernet cable, or via wireless if the printer/scanner has that capability. I want to be able to print to that printer (and scan from its scanner) by only having to turn on the printer/scanner and only one of the other computers, and not have to have both Linux machines turned on in order to print and/or scan.

So my questions are:
When I look at specific models of printers, what should I be looking for in their specifications that indicates that this configuration is possible (i.e., should I be looking exclusively for printers that say they are "wireless printers" or "network printers")?The reason I ask this question: In my online searching, I thought "networked printer" or "stand-alone network printer" meant just that, but what I found instead are pages and pages of instructions on how to connect the printer locally to a Linux machine, with the associated setup to allow that Linux machine to serve print requests coming from other machines on the LAN. And that approach is not what I want to do (with the notable exception of temporary setup to validate that the printer is responding to requests for printing and scanning from Linux).

Are there particular brands, makes, or models that I would have better luck in getting to work in this manner (i.e., "better stick with HP or Xerox")? Am I kidding myself that a combination printer/scanner would work in the same fashion and still be relatively easy to set up on both Linux machines without resorting to some Windows-centric approach? Result of my searching so far (I have not worked my way through all of these in detail, but plan to): References to local printer connection which is not what I want:
Setting_Up_a_Network_Printer_using_CUPS
Set up a network printer using cups
Set up a printer

The post inside Setting_Up_a_Network_Printer_using_CUPS that starts with "running an HP Photosmart 8450 as a stand-alone networked printer" (where is the permalink?) is as close as I could get, but I am concerned that the instructions given are specific to the HP Photosmart 8450, or specific to the HP vendor, versus for all printers that can be connected to an Ethernet network (not that being locked into HP is going to be a problem necessarily, but I would like to know why if that is the case). Linux compatible printers says "Have a look at LinuxPrinting for known working drivers for printers data base. Also buy from a linux friendly company, ie HP, Brother, Epsom." Later in that thread, someone said Definitely don't buy canon.

Networking :: Pulled Off - When Click "Print" And Result Comes Out Of A Printer Connected To Some Other Computer On A LAN

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.

Fedora Networking :: Can't Print To Shared Windows Printer From Fedora

Feb 20, 2011

I am trying to set up printing on my Fedora 14 laptop, on my home network.

Details:

- 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.

[code]....

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.

Ubuntu :: Printer HP D1660 No Print?

Nov 9, 2010

I've looked at all the threads that I can find on the HP Deskjet D1660. I am unable to print. I've also tried to manually install the hplip files with no help. The only thing that I can find says to use a driver 3.10.2 but all I can find is 3.10.6 and 3.10.6.15. But non of this is working. XP prints fine but I want Ubuntu to work fine too. This is why I bought this printer in the first place.

I am running Ubuntu 10.10 on an emachine with a celeron micro processor and it has 2 gig memory. I have tried the usb cable in every usb slot available and ever thing else. When I go go print a job the hp panel shows that job is sent to printer and that the printer is printing it. Unfortunately it never get printed. I have tried even removing cups and hplip using synaptic and reinstalling them but no help.

Server :: Shared Printer Does Not Print

Jun 26, 2009

A few months ago a client had me build a small file server running OpenSuse for them. They also had me install an HP Designjet 650C on the server and share it on the network for 2 desktops to print to. All went well and there have been zero problems. They use a few specialty apps that don't have good enough FOSS counterparts, so I couldn't talk them into switching the desktops to Linux, although they were very interested in it. One of the desktops runs Vista and has an XP Pro VM on it (they are considering a Linux VM to go with it so they can dip their toes in the water). There was a locally installed HP OfficeJet 5610 on the machine, but printing from the XP VM was a hassle because they had to tell virtualbox to pass the usb interface to the VM, effectively disabling it in Vista. Then to print in Vista again they had to release the interface back to the host OS. The other desktop (running XP) was also unable to print to it. They asked me to install the 5610 on the server and share it like I did the 650C.

Installing it on the server was easy. I just plugged it in and checked to make sure everything was neat and tidy in YaST. It printed flawlessly. I configured the share identically to the way I shared the 650C. I browsed the network from Vista, found the printer, and installed it using Vista's native driver. Then I sent a print to it from Vista and nothing happened. Vista is very slow to communicate with the printer compared to the 650C, but it will eventually report that the print job was successful. The printer never receives the print, though. Where are the print jobs going? The VM and other desktop are as big of a problem. XP does not natively support the 5610, so I have to download a driver from HP's site. The driver uses a stupid binary installer that will not allow the driver to be manually installed. Running the installer works, but the driver will not install until it sees the printer in a usb port. That won't work because we are connecting to it over a network path. Where can I find a driver that can be manually installed?
