OpenSUSE Hardware :: Set Up A Virtual Network, Set Up The Printer As A Network Printer?

Jan 17, 2010

Having made the transition from a certain widely used operating system to linux, suse 11.2, x64, successfully and pleasantly we are still left with a few problems.One of these is a few applications i have to use which run only in that old OS. ?To that end I have installed VirtualBox and got them to run with one glitch. I cannot print from VBox to my HP LaserJet 4000, lpt1 printer, which works fine in suse. Searching and posting on the Vbox forums turned up that lpt1 is not supported in the current vbox and that I need to set up a virtual network, set up the printer as a network printer and set it up as an lpd/lpr printer in Vbox WinXP. Have tried many different ways to do this without success, I think the problem is I do not know how to set up a network printer in Linux.

The virtual network is vboxnet0, which does show up in ifconfig, along with my eth0 net, and I can ping the windows guest, gateway and the host from either side host:suse/guest:winXP) respectively. Have tried numerous ways of setting up printer in YaST which works in suse but still does not work from WinXP guest. Have read the suse manual and several sources and searched forums with no results.Finally I am thinking I just don't know how to set up a network printer in linux. Using cups, kde, suse 11.2, don't know what else to tell. Samba is installed, although I am not using it to the best of my knowledge.

Ubuntu Networking :: Directly Connected Network Printer Unreachable.

Oct 3, 2010

I have a network printer directly connected via ethernet cable to an Ubuntu netbook, but pinging the printer fails, giving "Host Unreachable". The network light on the ethernet socket is lit green, and there is nothing else cable-connected to the network - just a simple cable connection between the netbook ethernet socket and the Network printer (a HP Laserjet 4200n). Ping works fine if I plug the cable into a different machine (a Win XP box) and ping from there, so it's not a cable or IP address problem.

This sounds simple enough and should work, but I'm stumped. Clues, anyone?

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.

Ubuntu Networking :: Can't Locate Printer Drivers In Network Printer Setup?

Oct 19, 2010

I am trying to set uamsung clx2160N as a standalone network printer on my home network. It is a printer with standalone network capability and is connected directly to my router and has a static IP number. We have a few Windows computers at home and they had no problem detecting the printer, installing the drivers and working. Unfortunately my Ubuntu computer recognises the printer and I can even access it's setup and diagnositcs through its IP number. However when I try to add it as a printer, drivers for it cannot be located. #ve tried setting it up three ways:1. Using Samsung's own setup package - finds printer and all the details it needs to work but offers no drivers2. Using Ubuntu's printer setup - recognises printer but stalls at Searching for Drivers dialog3. Trying to *** printer using CUPS - no problem finding and recognising printer, but when I come to search for the driver I get Internal Server Error.

I have of course been trying to do all of these as root. That's the limit of my knowledge reached and searches on the net aren't helping me either. The printer works fine directly connected via USB, so the drivers are on the computer somewhere. How do I get them set up to use the printer on the network?

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?

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Unable To Add USB Printer Via The YaST2 Printer Configuration Setup Tool In 11.3

Aug 26, 2010

I am unable to add my USB printer via the YaST2 Printer Configuration setup tool in openSUSE 11.3. The printer, a Dell Color Laser 1320c, was last used with openSUSE 11.2, and setup was entirely uneventful. No driver is provided by Dell, so I used the Fuji Xerox DocuPrint C525A Linux driver. The problem: To add a print queue in 11.3, a Connection must be specified (parallel, USB, network, etc). However, the configuration wizard fails to show the presence of the USB print device.


This printer was working just eight weeks ago under 11.2, and 11.3 is obviously able to detect its presence and identify it correctly. I feel certain the solution is simple, but I haven't found documentation that provides the answer.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Unable To Connect To Printer Wirelessly - Error Idle "Connecting To Printer"

Jun 23, 2011

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.

Debian :: How To Install Printer On Network

Jun 26, 2010

I installed a 'Brother' laser printer on Debian. It works fine. Installation was fairly automatic. I now have another desktop computer using Vista Windows. How do I install the printer on my home network? Is there something I have to do with Debian? The Debian computer has a parallel port for my printer. The Vista computer does not have a parallel port; so I can only use the Debian computer.

Hardware :: LAN Connected Printer Needs Re-connecting

Jun 1, 2010

My home/small office LAN has network connected printers. Some use wire. Some are wireless. Each has a unique static, private IP address on my LAN. Each workstation has a primary printer, but all of the printers are visible and used by all family and office folks. The symptoms:boot a workstation, connect to LAN printer,

start a queue
print things
suspend or shutdown the workstation
resume or reboot the workstation
various troubles

Even if there are no jobs queued (everything printed already) at the time of suspend, I must routinely "thump" the printer or workstation of both to make printing work again. I am concerned with Ubuntu Jaunty towers and laptops. All of the printers are HP something with a built-in wired or wireless ethernet connection. I'm not concerned with win-dose workstations on the LAN (unless interaction over there is causing other grief)!! For example, a win-dose spooler fails to end a print job properly and let go so that others may use the resource.

In the words of Snow White, "someday my Prints will come." ~~~ 0;-/ Dan __________
"Thump" -- a technical term for various acts including but not limited to reset, restart, power cycle, reboot, physical violence, etc. intended to correct bad behavior of computer system components.

Ubuntu :: Print To A Network Printer From 9.10 Install?

Mar 15, 2010

I am trying to print to a network printer from my 9.10 install. The printer is Canon_MF4360-4390, when browsing for printers, cups finds it immediately. I found drivers for this printer online (driver is called UFR_II_Printer_Driver_for_Linux_V200_uk_EN). The drivers installed without any problems.

I can go through cups and add the printer successfully. I can even print a test page that shows up in the queue as completed. However, nothing comes out of the printer. Also, there is nothing in /var/log/cups/error_log to show that an error has occurred.[URL]..

General :: FC12 / 13 - Can't Install Network Printer

Jun 16, 2010

Recently upgraded from FC11 to FC12, and lost the ability to print to my network printer. Couldn't figure it out, though I can continue to print from an old FC9 server, so I know it's not the print server, Netgear PS110 or the printer Samsung ML-2510. In desperation, I upgraded to FC13, and still no dice. Don't think it's a network problem as I've tried with a disabled local firewall (I'm behind a network firewall) and even disabled SELinux.

If I go through system-config-printer, I probe for network printers, and can discover the print server, but the queue is wrong (it has two ports, P1 and P2.) Neither PASSTHRU or manually written P1, the connected port, work. It will spool, then disappear. I'm using the Samsung ML-2150 Driver which I understand works for this printer and used to work on FC9, because the printer is not listed directly in CUPS' database.

Fedora Hardware :: F15: HP LaserJet 5MP Printer Not Connected

Apr 23, 2011

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.

Fedora :: KDE Print Manager In F15 - Printer May Not Be Connected

May 30, 2011

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?

Hardware :: Echo > /dev/lp0 Hangs When No Printer Is Connected?

Mar 17, 2010

I need to output a byte to LPT port. For this there's an option to program I/O ports directly (with ioperm & outb), but only if LPT port is a standard PC one (ports 0x378, 0x278, etc.). But i need a 'portable' way of doing this, i.e. which would also work on such interfaces as USB2LPT. I guess these adaptors will also have /dev/lp[0-9]* interface (am i right?). Here's what i get currently:$ echo 1 > /dev/lp0^CI.e. i have to use Ctrl+C because 'echo' never exits. When i had a printer connected to LPT, this did work
