my printer has a known CUPS bug; A4 is printed as letter size; i.e. printing only appears on the bottom half of the page. I downloaded a ppd file at [URL] but it improved nothing. Also installed the bug's patch (sorry I don't have the bug's number) and followed the instructions; zero results. Upgraded Ubuntu 9.04's CUPS-related repositories to 9.10 but no improvement. Every test page still comes out with just the top third sitting at the bottom.
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.

I have an ubuntu server (9.04) that needs to share a printer (a Brother 2070N on USB). To configure cups, I had to modify cups.conf quite a bit to let me access the printer management pages, but I did get it working. I can print using the lpr command, as well as print test pages using the management interface's "Print Test Page" button from any computer on my network. However, I cannot actually set up Ubuntu, Fedora, Vista, or OSX to see the network printer, and it's driving me insane.Brother from any computer on the network I can see the specific printer management page, but no computer can actually print to the printer (other than using the "print test page" button)
I configured cups and I managed to print successfully with generic text only but my problem is that the printout always comes out as 80 columns. anything more than 80 colums wraps on the next page. I tried changing the pagesize at the textonly.ppd but it didn't work.my textonly.ppd is
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.
I'm trying to print a PDF from Windows through CUPS. I'm guessing it is supposed to appear somewhere on my Ubuntu machine, but I cannot find any files. When I go on the CUPS server and look at "completed jobs", it shows every print that I did, but I have no idea where the file is located.It is not in my Home directory.
I cant print in firefox 3.6 by cups. Whe i go to file print i see the printers. The file is send to the wright printer. Printer crasch. I look on internet en found a solution. Firefox can only print to file. I had to add gtk-printer-backbands ="lpr,file" in /etc/gtk-2.0 in the file gtkr. and restart cups When i co to the printers i don't see the printers but only lpr. When i klik print the page wil print but only to the defualt printer. Is there a solution the fix this error. Ore how can i give the commando lpr -p printername. I try this on command line I make 2 printqueue's to the same printer and when i give echo "text" | lpr -p printername it works How can i change the gtkr file to have the posibility to slect the printers
I am hard time printing to one particular Canon IR8500 printer Red hat.WE are using CUPS to manager around 30 printers.when I try to start the printer from CUPS, it comes back immediately to Printer State: Stopped, accepting jobs..After I delete it and redefine it, the status says Idle, but as soon as I submit a job, the status change to 'Stopped'.
I'm not sure how it happened but recently when trying to print to a previously added printer, the printer does not show up. Most options are grayed out and clicking troubleshooter tells you that CUPS is not started. Latest guide I could find is for Ubuntu 9.04, options for restarting cups in 10.4 are slightly different (see below) To restart cups from terminal window in Ubuntu 10.4:sudo /etc/init.d/cups restartI looks like in Ubuntu 9.04 the command was /etc/init.d/cupsys restart. This should show the printer and open up the grayed out menu options, allowing you to print normally again.
I have installed cups(1.5.3) in my Beagleboard black based custom hardware running on Debian 7.8 using 'apt-get install' command. I am trying to print to HP deskjet 1112 usb printer from system line but nothing is getting printed and the output of 'lpstat -t' shows the error : "/usr/lib/cups/filter/hpcups failed "
The error_log output is :
I [10/Nov/2015:09:44:51 +0000] Saving job.cache... I [10/Nov/2015:09:44:52 +0000] Listening to [v1.::1]:631 (IPv6) I [10/Nov/2015:09:44:52 +0000] Listening to 127.0.0.1:631 (IPv4) I [10/Nov/2015:09:44:52 +0000] Listening to /var/run/cups/cups.sock (Domain)
Please find the response from CUPS administrators below:
As far as I see this has nothing to do with CUPS.As far as I see the first error message comes from Ghostscript: "Unable to open the initial device, quitting" (this is in Ghostscript's gs_init.ps file).Therefore Ghostscript does not produce any output which lets then the filter from HP's HPLIP driver software error out with "cupsRasterOpen failed" and finally the HP backend errors out with "ERROR: null print job".Neither Ghostscript nor HP's HPLIP driver software belong to CUPS so that the issue does not belong to CUPS (according to my analysis).
I guess that somehow the "Ghostscript command line" is not correct or does not work as it should.Usually this is alos no bug in Ghostscript but "some where else" where the Ghostscript command line with all its parameters is created.
I am currently attempting to attach my printer to my fresh Debian installation and get CUPS running with it. I was able to add the printer easily enough, but when I try and print a test page from the web interface, it fails, and I see the following in the log.

I am running CentOS 5.4 with CUPS v1.3.7 and have a Brother printer (MFC-5895CW) that connects wirelessly to a SonicWall device. The SonicWall is hardwired to my PC. I have found that periodically, the printer queue will become disabled and the only way to re-enable it is to issue a cupsenable command.
I believe that queue only gets disabled if the wireless connection drops in the middle of a print job. I've tried dropping the wireless connection and then bringing it back up when no print jobs are active or pending and the queue is fine for the next print job that is sent when the connection is up.
I did a little research and found that my version of CUPS contains support for an ErrorPolicy setting in the printer.conf file that may prevent the print queue from being disabled. I'm hoping that if I change the default value from "stop-printer" to "retry-job" that this will prevent CUPS from disabling the print queue and requirring a cupsenable command to re-enable the queue.
I don't want to play around with scheduling cron jobs to enable the queue.
When I try to print something there is only some led blinks on printer and nothing is print. I am using drivers from brother(cupswrapper). I am using CUPS 1.3.11. I didn't have any problems on my previous installation of slackware(but I don't know which driver I've used).
Im trying to set up a print server using Fedora 12 and CUPS.
It recognized the printer, and i can print from the linux box. When i try to install it on my Win 7 64-bit box i can install the printer itself by giving it the IP address and port number of the linux box but i cant sent anything to it to print. I apologize im a little rough on the details, im not at home right now. I believe the printer i have is a HP PSC 1500. I opened the cups port on the linux firewall, and i shared the printer through the cups admin browser page.
I have a problem with cups dropping print jobs. The machine fedora 13 installation using cups 1.4.4-10
The dropped jobs happen only rarely happen and therefore is difficult to debug the problem since it doesn't happen 99% of the time. This morning (while in the shower) I wondered if the lost jobs are lost because they are timing out, perhaps because of slow input from a user. I can test this more later in the week..
The print jobs are initiated from within a COBOL program. COBOL opens the print file as output and at this stage a job appears in the print queue with a status in the print queue of "held".
The user types in various bits of information and when complete the program executes the final write to the output print file. The job is somehow released and then is physically printed by CUPS. I suspect that if the user is slow the "held" job times out and then the job is lost.
There are a number of timeout directives in cups.conf but I am unsure which might be appropriate in this case. Or perhaps there is some other timeout thing happening.
I've been running Slackware 13.37 since RC1 (so I'm a relatively new Slacker!). I set up CUPS to start as a default service during my install process. I print once in a while, but my computer is not a print-server per se. Do I have to have it auto-started in order to just be able to print on-demand (like, from LibreOffice or Okular)?
I just installed CentOS 5.3 on Compaq desktop PC with HP laser jet 2100 attached to parallel port. The PC is connected to LAN with 2 other PCs running Fedora. I configured the HP printer as a shared CUPS printer and I was able to detect the printer from the other PCs running Fedora but I can't print test page from the other PCs.
P.S. I opened up port 513 and 631 for both UDP and TCP on print server PC and cups-lpd service is running on it.
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.
Trying to print from my laptop to friends wireless printer. I see his printer "7600 Series" in Network - File Browser. How do I print to his printer. I have text document. I click on "Print", but only "Print to file comes up".
I did System -> Printing -> Help -> Troubleshoot Got: CUPS Service Stopped The CUPS printer spooler does not appear to be running. To correct this choose system -> Administration -> Services There is not "Services there" What to do? Ubuntu 10.04 LTS
I am trying to set up a print server here on a Squeeze system using the stock debian CUPS package. It seems that since Apple has bought this package, it has caused me nothing but grief. I have set up two different USB printers with raw print queues, and every time I send a print job to either of them, the job disappears into thin air, with no error output. In fact, when I look at the queue, it says the job was completed successfully. I look at the logs, and there is no output indicating any issues. Just for kicks, I reconfigured one of the printers to use a linux driver, and it printed just fine (a little slow, but fine). I set it back to raw, and the jobs disappear again into oblivion.
I have done this many times in the past, and never had any issues -- I even had this very same printer set up that way about a year ago, and it worked great. The only noteworthy thing that seems to have changed is that there are no longer any files called "mime.types" and "mime.convs". It seems they have been replaced by "raw.types" and "raw.convs". The contents of these two files are as follows:
Canon PIXMA MX492, installed drivers from Canon page a few weeks ago, printed test page just fine, printed a few pages after that.
This week I reinstalled Jessie, but with net install instead of live USB. Installed drivers from Canon, it all looks the same.
Localhost: 631 says print job complete, but nothing ever prints. Printer doesn't respond at all. Where print spool is going. I can't figure out what I missed. The install was so simple last time and it should have been the same.
The net install seemed to fix drawing tablet drivers, maybe broke printing somehow? Updated kernel for graphics firmware, but same version as a few days ago.
