Slackware :: Libreoffice3.3.2 Printing In SW13.37 - Doesn't Print The Same Font On The Printer

May 21, 2011

After installing libre3.3.2 using the Slackbuild scripts, I found that it displayed fonts correctly, but doesn't print the same font on the printer. The output of the printer should be Arial, but is instead some elongated, overlapping mess.

The same Slackware package installed on SW13.1 prints normally. (Same computer, different partition)

Spadmin used to control the printer fonts, but apparently not anymore.

System: Linux nadrek 2.6.37.6-smp #2 SMP Sat Apr 9 23:39:07 CDT 2011 i686 AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 4800+ AuthenticAMD GNU/Linux.

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.

Hardware :: Hp Printer - Doesn't Work - Says The Print Job Stopped

Dec 12, 2009

I was always able to print with my HP OfficeJet 700 printer in Linux, but all of a sudden when I need to print something important, it doesn't work?! It says the print job stopped. It only printed 1/4 of 1/4 of what I needed to print. It has the correct print settings, etc... but I can't print?! Please help. It was able to print the test page before, but now even that won't print. Even CUPS is having problems connecting to the server. Printing in Windows has the same problem.

Slackware :: Cannot Print To Printer On Samba Share, Even Though It Is Accessible?

Jan 28, 2010

I'm running slack64-current.I setup samba to share a printer on my home network. I can print to the printer locally.The printer is visible on the network. However when I try to print anything on the printer via samba (or cups for that matter) from either the local machine or the remote machine, everything acts as if the job went through, but nothing happens. I'm sure I've seen this before on another slack machine that is currently unavailable, but I can't remember what the answer was, and I'm trying to be more precise with this setup so that I actually learn something.

Slackware :: Print To WinXP Printer Via Samab & Redmon ?

Jan 12, 2010

I have my Slack box (Slack 13, 64bit) and wish to print to a Cannon ip1980 inkjet (32 bit drivers only. Source is only partially open, some libraries are closed source so cannot compile my own 64 bit driver) connected to WinXp laptop using the Windows drivers via wireless and Samba.

So I came across a little Windows app called RedMon that redirects a printer port to any other app [URL]

So basically what happens now on the Windows laptop is I have a virtual printer setup whose port is redirected to Redmon (call this Ghostscript2cannon) which in turn redirects it to a program called gsprint (command line tool that takes standard input - the print job - converts it to Postscript/Ghostscript for none PS printers) and then finally it goes off to the Cannon printer for printing using the Windows drivers - so far so good.

So the problem - basically I cannot get the printer to print from the Slack box even though I can see the shared printer and send a job to it. After a job is sent from the Linux box to the XP laptop if you double click on Ghostscript2cannon (on the xp machine) the job shows but there is no printer activity, the job just sits there and does not complete.

Some Diagnostics:

I can print a test page from Ghostscript2cannon directly on the Windows laptop so I know the Windows printer/redirect part is working.

From the Linux box I can see the shared folders of the XP laptop from Dolphin so we know the Samba/wireless part is functioning (although I cannot see the printer)

However

Code:
>$smbclient -L shelly -Umrt%mrt

Ubuntu :: Printing Corrupted - Get Substituted / Print A Blank Space / Print A Box

Mar 23, 2011

Interesting problem: For the first time with Xubuntu 10.10 64bit, I am finding certain applications print corrupt. A varying amount of letters / numbers either get substituted/print a blank space/ print a box etc etc. This corruption seems to happen from a Pdf ( evince ) or Spreadheet ( Gnumeric ) Opening the same Pdf on another machine (ubuntu 10.10 32bit) prints perfectly. Opening the same .xls file on the original computer but using OOo Calc prints perfectly.

I guess I have ruled out any problems with the printer itself or the network JetDirect box. I have re-installed CUPS and evince and upgraded to the latest version of HPLIP but the problem appears unchanged.

Slackware :: Can't Print - "Unable To Open Image File For Printing!"

Jan 18, 2011

Since slackware 13.0 (upgraded to 13.1), I haven't been able to print anything. I can add printers no problem using the cups gui (or whatever). However any print I send to any printer fails because of:

"Unable to open image file for printing!"

I can post the whole error log if that helps, but I can't see much in it. I haven't been able to print for about 6 months, which is getting a bit annoying.

p.s, as a I lazy option I upgraded to the cups in -current, but that didn't help (although I don't think it was a very different version).

Slackware :: Printing Document - Printer Had Been "stopped"

Jun 20, 2010

If there has been one consistent, recurring problem over the years it has been printing. I went to print a document, but it never made it to the printer. I looked at the HP device manager and the file was in the queue, but with the notation that the printer had been "stopped." I checked the setup up with localhost:631 and everything appears to be correct. User name is in the lp group. I then removed the current CUPS package and installed the one from Slackware64-13.

Doing that solved an earlier problem with one of the newer version of CUPS. This time the document made it to the printer, but each line overlapped itself and the whole thing fit into the space of about 6 lines. Just for chuckles I saved a copy of the document to the windows partition, booted over to XP, fired up OpenOffice for windows and the same document printed out perfectly.

Hardware :: Canon Pixma MP250 - Slackware 13 It Doesn't Print

Apr 29, 2010

Trying to make a Canon Pixma 3-in-1 MP250 to work with my Slackware. I've took the drivers from the canon website (they have .deb, .rpm and sources there) and compile. Basically I followed the instructions from INSTALL files in each subdirectory (backend,cngpij, etc).

Then I upgraded also CUPS to 1.4.3.

Installing the printer in CUPS, I end up with:

Code:
Description:Canon MP250 series
Location:
Driver:Canon MP250 series Ver.3.20 (color)
Connection:cnijusb:/dev/usb/lp0
Defaults:job-sheets=none, none media=iso_a4_210x297mm

It seems ok. But when I send a test page (or any other kind) to printer, it shows some activity on the led display, cups reports the job as completed but nothing happens!

As an extra, I tried to convert .deb packages to .tgz and install from them. The same result, except now the scangear utility is working (so scanning is ok).

How can I find what's missing from here? Maybe it's a bug with cups/drivers or something is missing from configuration?

p.s. On other machine I have an Xubuntu (Karmic Koala). Installed there from .deb packages and the printer works as expected.

Ubuntu :: Canon Mp470 Printer - 10.10 - Able To Print Black And White But Unable To Print Photos

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....?

Jan 3, 2011

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?

Software :: CUPS - Print Jobs Shows Completed, But Page Doesn't Print?

Dec 6, 2008

I initially had a problem accessing the CUPS interface (see my other post) and got that resolved by adding the user "cupsys". Now, everything "looks" ok, and when I print a test page, it shows it as completed (in CUPS). However, the page never prints.
The printer is a Canon MP600 (using the canonmp600en.ppd file to configure it). Here's the output of my conf file.

Ubuntu :: By Default Pango Is Choosing AR PL UMing CN As Font To Render Japanese Text When Current Font Doesn't Have Japanese Glyphs

May 4, 2010

Actually I want to log a bug but I don't really know what package to log it against. The problem is that by default Pango is choosing the AR PL UMing CN as the font to render Japanese text when the current font doesn't have Japanese glyphs. But AR PL UMing CN is a Chinese font, so Chinese glyphs for kanji characters (e.g., 覚) are displayed. This is jarring and confusing for Japanese readers.

This situation mostly arises when you have mixed English and Japanese text. Some applications (for instance Firefox) will allow you to select a font for Asian text. Thus if the text contains only Asian characters it will use the font you select, rather than what Pango would have selected. But if it is a mix of English and Japanese, you end up with the wrong glyphs.

Other environments (like gnome-terminal, or a gedit) have difficulties as well. Since the primary interface requires mono spaced roman characters you run into difficulty selecting fonts. Most Japanese fonts only have proportional roman characters. This means that if use a nice roman font and use Japanese text (for instance file names), you end up with Chinese glyphs. What I want is a mechanism that will work across all of Gnome for selecting the font I want to use for Chinese characters. That way I can choose either Japanese or Chinese glyphs.

I realize this is low priority. It only bugs me a little, but many of my Japanese colleagues are put off from using Ubuntu because they are confused by the Chinese glyphs that pop up on my screen from time to time. As I said, I'd like to file a bug, but I'm not sure against what package...

General :: Selecting A Font When Printing A Text File From The Command Line?

Jul 29, 2011

I don't understand why this is so difficult.In the old days, there was lpforms which allowed some formatting. CUPS did not see fit to implement this into it's lp package.cgi-...-cgi?lpforms+1In the old days, lpr allowed you to select a font in the command line with -1=fontname. CUPS did not see fit to implement this into it's lpr package.htmIn the old days, printers had fonts installed on them that you could access. Modern printers don't seem to have this. So now I still need to be able to select a font when I print certain text files from the command line but it seems this is impossible. I've been working with instances and lpoptions, which allows me to do a lot of other things I need like orientation and margins and even set the font size, but I still cannot choose a font other than the default.

Slackware :: CUPS Print Jobs Print 1st Page OK, But All Others Are Overwritten?

Feb 26, 2011

Not sure when CUPS started acting up. I have the latest 13.1 current software installed.The first page to print is always OK, but all succeeding pages are overwritten. The second page shows the first page on top of it, and the third shows the preceding pages on top of it - and so on. Has anyone else seen this problem?I guess the printer buffer is not getting flushed correctly. If my configurations were trashed in some way, I don't know where to look for a fix.

Ubuntu Servers :: CUPS Printing-Can Print Test Page & Nothing Else?

I recently built a server from an old box using Ubuntu Server 9.10. This is my first server and I am very new to the server world.I have an Epson Stylus NX400 connected via USB. I have managed to configure it to the point where I can see the printer listed on my client laptop and can print a test page. However, I cannot print anything else. When I access the job history through the CUPS adminI can see that the print jobs were recognized and marked as complete, even though the printer never physically engaged.

General :: CUPS Client Configuration For Printing To Windows Print Server

May 24, 2011

Since last few weeks i am struggling to setup printer connected to print server.

Here is the setup that i have:

I have Red Hat Linux machine from which i want to issue print jobs.

I have Windows Print Server having multiple printers connected to it.

I am able to print jobs from Windows client to any of these printers. But i am not able to print from Red Hat Linux. (i have verified that i can print using smbclient utility, but based on my reading, CUPS API could be used from application to discover, print and issue print jobs.)

I am not able to get the correct configuration for setting up CUPS client.

General :: Cups Spooler Quits Printing Large Print File?

Mar 22, 2010

I have installed centos 5 and can print small to medium lpr files using cups fine (1 to 20 pages), but when i tried to print a file of 95 pages the printer just stops, I have to power off the printer and turn it back on and it will start printing again. It looks like some data is lost in this process. It may print 20 pages and stop. When restarted it may print 20 or 40 or complete the report.I can print to the devicectly and it works fine. It is only when the large print jobs are run through the spooler.I have tried on different printers and the same results, that's what makes me think it is a spooler problem.
