Ubuntu Networking :: How To Get Printer To Print Wirelessly
May 19, 2011
I have an HP deskjet f4580 and I downloaded hplip and the printer prints when its plugged into the usb but not wirelessly. And I noticed an hp setup adhoc on my network connections but I couldnt get on it. I'm nearly certain its something I am missing just don't know what..? and I have Ubuntu 11.04
I would like to know if it is possible to configure my laptop so that it can print wirelessly on my MP800r canon printer, and if so then how to configure them to make this operation possible. I'm using Ubuntu.
Linux and I have trying to get my Fedora 15 (x86 64bit) on my laptop to print to an Epson Stylus NX515 printer/scanner. I have the printer connected to a router through a wireless connection. I have other computers that are on the network that are Windows based and they of course are printing/Scanning just fine. The printer is located in a different room. I have been searching for a solution but non that explains how to install a printer driver for one that is connected to a router wirelessly.
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.
after looking around for hours, i finally gave up and decided to write this post. I need to know exactly what to do to get my canon mx860 printer connected to ubuntu wireless. ive tried nearly everything, but nothing really makes sense and it just doesn't work.
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.
xxxxxx:/etc/samba$ uname -aLinux xxxxxx 2.6.38-8-generic #42-Ubuntu SMP Mon Apr 11 03:31:50 UTC 2011 i686 i686 i386 GNU/LinuxI have a printer shared off of Windows XP. I have always been able to print to this from Ubuntu by adding a network printer through the "Windows Printer via Samba" gui.Now, in Natty, I can set up the printer no problem but all jobs fail. In the printer properties gui I can see this text briefly: "Processing - unable to connect to cifs host".The errors in /var/log/cups/error_log are:

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....?
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.
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.
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?
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:
I am having FC11 with an HP prineter attached my firewall is disabled I trying to print from my laptops after I have setup samba and shared the printer , It was working fine when I was installing FC4 and FC5 I am not sure what is missing when I tried to print from the XP box I got "Test pge failed to print" error what I have really noticed in the xp and vista box is that when I go to the printer settings inside control panel , pressing the ports tab and checking to what port I am printing I see that the port "\samba-serverprinter" is not created there this is the log
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.
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.
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.
my net worked HP printer will not print-broken pipe - this started after I had to switch off the printer at the mains in order to attend to a paper jam. Now it will not print apart from a test page. I am using Fedora 10 and the device info is "hp:/net/Officejet_Pro_L7500?ip=192.168.0.4"
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.
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.
I am trying to set up printing on my Fedora 14 laptop, on my home network.
- 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.
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.
I cannot print pdf files. I click print in evince everything seems ok but nothing comes out on the printer. I receive no error. I have a HP printer (LasterJet 3005n) attached over a network. I am running 9.10 on a Dell Optiplex. I did not have this problem in 9.04. I had this problem immediately after I did a fresh install of 9.10. I can print open office documents without any problem, just not pdfs. I have the same problem with my serval laptop (also running 9.10).
I have 2 desktop PC's both running 10.4, both connect to internet thro a wireless router. One PC has a printer attached and I would like to be able to print from the PC without the printer attached, what is the easiest way to achieve this?
I've tried lpr [FILE] didn't work I've tried cat [FILE] > /dev/lp0 couldn't figure out how to get to the root prompt and I googled until my googler was sore. All I got was lengthy and confusing user manuals for cat. besides going through the trouble of loading GIMP everytime I want to print something?
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 126.96.36.199. 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.
I have recently bought a printer hp deskjet d1663 but I can not print with ubuntu 10.04. The computer recognition the printer and it say printer ready to print but then it does not print. What can I do?
I am running ubuntu 9.04 and am having trouble printing. My Brother DCP 330c printer is detected however I have to manually chose a printer driver all of which do not work with the printer. I have tried downloading a printer driver from the brother website and tried to install it.
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]..
The printer is connected to a networked XP machine that is accessible from Ubuntu. I have set up the printer as instructed in this help file... https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WindowsXPPrinter SAMBA sees the printer on the network , verifies the printer and the driver loads. Everything goes along just fine until "print test page" No go. The printer shows up in the "Printing -local host" window. Under "printer properties" the "Make and Model"are showing the correct device in the correct location. The "Printer State" shows "idle - /usr/lib/cups/filter/foomatic-rip failed" Is there something I might have missed in the set-up?
