Ubuntu :: 'Cups Server Error' After Fresh Insall Of Karmic
Jan 30, 2010
When I try to configure a printer, I get the message "CUPS SERVER ERROR"- The CUPS scheduler is not running-my printer a (LEXMARK all in one X2600)and worked fine since ubuntu 8.04..But now it doesnt work.Lexmark even provide a linux driver.
I have an ubuntu server with a printer plugged to it through USB. I used to set the server ip on the Printing panel to print remotelly to it, but it doesn't work anymore since I upgraded to karmic. I can see the printer in the printer panel, and I can even print a test page through the panel, but I can't print from any other application. When I come to the printing screen, the printer has the message retrieving information from printer and I can't print. I guess the cups server is working well as I can print the test page, and I used to print with hardy, looks like if the changes made in the printing panel don't have any effect on the system.
I am trying to setup an HPC4400 printer attached to a Windows XP box on a Fedora-11 box with the latest updates and am getting the error " Cups server error Client-error-not-possible ". Using the Cups GUI on the fedora-11 box I can find the printer, I get verify that the shared printer exists but still get the message when I try to install it.
I get this error ALL THE TIME after a reboot if I try to print. Going to the printing applet to add the printer does no good because Lucid is not connected to the CUPS server. I found that the work-around below fixes the issue for the current session.
I have a printer configured on my Ubuntu server using CUPS amd made it available to the local network. The printer is recognized on my other Ubuntu machine without any problems. But on my Suse laptop, the printer is not recognized. Using the YaST printer Configuations, I choose the option "Recieve Printer Information from Remote CUPS servers. But no printer is found.But... when I choose Do All Yout Printing Directly via One Remote CUPS server and enter the correct IP address (192.168.1.100), the printer is found andI am sure the printer info is broadcasted because it shows up on my second Ubuntu PC. But why is it not recognized by default on my Suse machine
I'm trying to install and configure a printer (networked Brother HL4040CN), but I'm getting an error dialog when I click on "New" in the printer configuration GUI.
Action 1) Click on "New" Response 1) a) "Authentication (fetching device list)" dialog box, request password for root. Response 1) b) "Returning HTTP Forbidden for CUPS-Get-Devices (no URI) from localhost" appended to /var/log/cups/error_log A2) Type root password and press enter in "Authentication" dialog box R2) a) "CUPS server error" box, "There was an error during the CUPS operation: 'server-error-internal-error'. R2) b) /var/log/cups/error_log:

Any ideas? I have installed the RPMs from Brother's web site for both LPR and CUPS-wrapper
I have had a new install of Karmic from CD and have done all updates and added a few applications like VLC and a few others. I have several different media players, Totem, VLC, Xine, and gxine. I started out thinking Totem might be enough, but added VLC as it can handle just about anything, and then the other just to see of any thing happened.
I have installed all restricted and unrestricted packages from the Medibuntu depositories I can find. Still my laptop will not read any kind of DVD. I am region 2, but have tried both bought region 1 and region 2 DVDs. I had this problem last time I installed Ubuntu, but after installations of a few applications and messing about it suddenly worked. I really didn't know why or what suddenly was working.
I just installed karmic on my media server. With Jaunty, everything worked fine. I tried an upgrade, and go no sound. After poking around in the forms and trying some solutions still no sound.
So I decided to try a fresh install, again, no sound. I have cheched the obvious, mixer volumes, mute, output device, etc. But I can't seem to get it to work. I poked around in the forms and I've tried many of the solutions, but still no luck.
Here is my lspci output for my sound device...
00:07.0 Audio device: nVidia Corporation MCP72XE/MCP72P/MCP78U/MCP78S High Definition Audio (rev a1) Subsystem: ASUSTeK Computer Inc. Device 8345 Flags: bus master, 66MHz, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 20 Memory at fcf78000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16K]
I have a working system running Jaunty. For various reasons I want to move to Karmic, but I don't want to use the "upgrade" feature in the software update manager. I need to swap some hard drives around, so I want to do a fresh installation. My question is, what is the easiest way to "migrate" a user to a fresh installation? On a Mac you can simply run the migration tool and it moves everything into place with relative ease, whether from a backup drive or from one computer to another. Is there any analogous program in Ubuntu? Or is it just so simple that such a program is unnecessary?
I have been able (with some hair pulling and gnashing of teeth) to print from outside the LAN to the printer connected via USB to the desktop computer at home, until the last upgrade. The laptop will forst say the printer may not be connected, but eventually (usually) after a while says the job was sent to the printer. The log files on the desktop - serving as the printer server have an error message in cups/error_log that I am not familiar with, and don't believe I have seen before. I am sure if I could decipher that error and figure out how to change the behavior to get rid of it, it would once again work. Printing from within the LAN is a no-brainer as it has been for the last several releases. The error that I get when trying to print outside the LAN (via the internet) is:
cupsdAcceptClient: 12 from <WAN IP>:631 (IPv4) Unable to encrypt connection from <WAN IP> - GnuTLS internal error. I am missing something as far as authentication from the laptop to the desktop. how to fix it.
After trialling ubuntu on my home comp, and getting brilliant results, i've now migrated my work computer too. Now, i can't connect to the internet or office network. I'm on a small office wired network. When i was on XP all the settings were on 'utomatic' - didn't need to input an IP, DNS, subnet etc. Now i Can't even ping the router.I've browsed around various other threads and can't find a working solution. I've tried inputting various settings in ubuntu connection settings, but still cannot get it working. (was hoping it would be automatic, as it was on my home comp).
installed lenny and am trying to install brother dcp7010 again:
1) i can't start CUPS server with /etc/init.d/cups restart "file not found", there is a cups@ link in /etc/init.d.
2) when i install dcp7010 cupswrapper
dpkg -i cupswrapperDCP7010-2.0.1-2.i386.de it ends with " lpinfo: Verbindung zum Server nicht m�glich: Verbindungsaufbau abgelehnt lpadmin: Verbindung zum Server nicht m�glich: Verbindungsaufbau abgelehnt" (connection to server not possible, refused)
3)[URL] doesn't work.
4)foomatic-gui can't find the installed dcp7010 lpr-driver
brdcp7010lpr-2.0.1-1.i386.deb, (a couple of days ago it did)
This is frustrating because it worked in etch and worked for awhile in lenny. The dcp7010-scanner does work.
I've installed wine on my laptop and it runs fine. Although it seems something happened while installing it (via apt-get install), because everytime I use apt-get untill then I get the following in my terminal:
The following packages were automatically installed and are no longer required:
How to re-install open office when open office stops working... I installed open opeen office from the offical site of openoffice via their tar file. On extraction of the tar file a OOO--- folder is created. On running the ./setup option in this folder OpenOffice got neatly and easily installed. However once when I re-installed/repaired fedora14 on my system due to some other issues Open office stopped working on my machine. Here is how I resolved this..
Login as root and then select all the commands (copy) and paste it in the terminal. Please note that there should be a blank line at the end of the select to ensure that the last command also gets executed. Then go to the OO---- folder and run ./setup again. It will work...I spent about 3 hours coming up with this solution. I was searching and searching for re-installation and with some tips from the other posts on various sites I came up with this solution. The packages that had to be deleted were found with the rpm -qa openoffice* and rpm -qa ooo* commands.
I'm unable to change the setting of the actual printer on my system, cant even delete itthe system ask me the root password, after i enter it, i always get this message "There was an error during the CUPS operation:'client-error-not-authorized'."
I've been switching out computers to the Ubuntu distro and so far it's been very successful until this recent snag! As I am trying to have a printer plugged in through USB on one computer and shared on the other! I have the USB on the second computer and it found the printer just fine, no problems and nothing else I had to install! I then went to the first computer and tried to add the printer through the CUPS website using all the proper addresses and queue names and I receive CUPS "client-error-not-possible". I have read other threads on this very same problem but to be honest they just make no sense whatsoever to me! I was thinking of just giving up and using a print server but I know that I will run into the same snag as even then I still need CUPS.
I am running Fedora 15 and want to add a network printer (Brother HL 2040) on a Win pc reunning XP pro. Fedora finds the network printer, shows that is shares, but when I try to finish I get the above message. I have emptied the spool file of the test page I tried earlier and nothing but the tmp file remains. Anyone have any suggestions?
I have Ubuntu LTS 10.04.2 x86-64 running with default Cups installed. Now I am trying to print on a Canon iRC1021i network printer using a x64 PPD file. Trying to print a test page delivers a "server-error-internal-error".
After this I ran the debugging mode which delivered the troubleshooting.zip file.
I noticed that on my server, I keep getting the same error flooding my logs:
We don't use CUPS but I'm sure that package is a dependency of something else. It seems like this is Samba trying to share out to the local CUPS server. How can I disable this from flooding my logs? Samba should not be sharing out any printers at all.
I'm in a bind and I don't know how to get what I want. Nmap shows ipp running cups on port 631. Great, simple enough I uninstall cups, along with its dependencies. A new portscan reveals that the port is closed SUCCESS, but... Ubuntu Update Manager nags me @ every restart about the "important security" updates. I can't lock the version of cups in Synaptic, because cups is not installed! So you see I'm in a bind. If I have cups installed I have an open port, and if I uninstall cups the update manager nags me. What do I do? I've tried:
- stopping the cups service and issuing the chkconfig cups off command... (doesn't close the port) - uninstalling cups... (update manager nags) - fuser -k 631/tcp (great, but @ reboot the port is still open) Please teach me how to close this port / stop this service / tell update manager to shove cups.....
I've been trying to figure this out for longer than I care to admit. We upgraded our print server (sysadmin) to 64 bit lucid and that moved our cups server from 1.3.7 to 1.4.3. We have a remote server that is still 1.3.7 (printhost1) but version difference doesn't seem to be relevant to the problem.
If I'm on console on sysadmin and do an lpr to a printer on printhost1, everything is copacetic. However, If I'm on a host that specifies "ServerName sysadmin" in its "/etc/cups/client.conf" access_log on sysadmin shows:
Additional symptoms are that only printers locally defined on sysadmin show up when the client uses System>Administration>Printing in gnome. Same thing when you browse printers in windows on our samba domain controller that backends on CUPS.
I just know that it's something simple that's going to make me facepalm but I'm at a loss.
I was using Red Hat 7.3 forever and decided it was time for a change. I went to Fedora 10 but it was really buggy. CentOS 5.2 is VERY stable.Here is my problem.The server is command line only -- I tend to hate GUI"S.I setup Samba no problem disabling the ports needed through the firewall and that was straightforward.CUPS is a nightmare for me since CentOS locks down the cupsd.conf and then the firewall does its thing. I allowed port 631 through the firewall but then got lost on the cupsd.conf. It's been too long and the old redhat one won't work with CentOS (not surprising since it's a VERY old system) straight-forward CUPS tutorial for a command line interface. I just need it to be:
I'm trying to set up a cups print server on 10.10 server. When I run
Code: sudo apt-get install cupsys
i get this error
