Ubuntu :: Printer Always Clean Heads Before Printing On Replugging
Aug 30, 2010
I have a Brother MFC-665CW printer and finally got it connected via wireless. I always unplug my printer when I am not using it. But every time I plug it back in and print something, it always do a cleaning of the printer heads before printing.
Running: Ubuntu 10.04 32 bit
What else should I add to the system stats?
I have problem with my printer HP Deskjet D1460. My printer is configured and works. When I send a file on the print, the printer clings a sheet of paper and starts to print, but a paper as was clean so clean and remains, after printing.
i've got an HP printer, a new one, and it's got an error code jamming it up. I tried to play musical printers between a windows 7 computer and my own ubuntu computer. this apparently generated the error, and now the printer is no longer working. anyone got a hack or program that can scrub the memory of an hp disk-jet F2480? or should i just throw the thing away and buy a new one?
How do I stop a printer from printing? Here's what happened- I started to print some PDF stuff and then changed my mind. The printing job hadn't finished so I just clicked on the printer icon and selected QUIT. Well, of course that didn't work so I just turned the printer off......same result- when I turn the printer back on it keeps on printing the same stuff. How do I stop the printer from continuing and delete all print jobs?
I have a brand new Canon MF4350d printer/copier/fax/scanner installed and shared on XP that I can't get working on Ubuntu!
XP prints test pages fine. Ubuntu sees the XP shared printer, it sends print jobs, and the XP machine even receives the print jobs (I can see them "spooling" in the XP print manager) but then nothing happens. The job leaves Ubuntu showing 150k but then shows 50 bytes when received in XP before disappearing from the queue.
How I got to where I am...
There was no native driver in Ubuntu for the printer, so I downloaded Canon linux drivers source and compiled (including make install) based on some other threads I've found such as this one.
Compiling left me with PPD files that seem to be specific to the MF4350, although their names show MF4350z not MF4350d. I'm not sure why there were three different files with slightly different names (CNCUPSMF4350ZJ.ppd, CNCUPSMF4350ZK.ppd, and CNCUPSMF4350ZS.ppd).
I added the printer manually using the Ubuntu printer browser setup (Samba) and selected the .PPD files manually. I've tried all three different .PPD files to no avail.
I've toggled bi-directional comm. and tried different print drivers on XP. Nothing's worked yet.
Been using ubnutu gnome for a loooong time and my printer (Canon MX340) has been running just fine, configuration and usage.
I now switch to kde. configure my printer the same way i would under gnome and as soon as i send a job, it processes for about 3 seconds and just marks "stopped" under status. nothing goes through anymore!!
i've updated from 4.5 to 4.6 with backports and nothing is happening on there either.
im running maverick amd64 and using the i386 drivers (with dpkg -i --force-all) which are still recognized even under kde.
p.s.: the printer normally runs as wireless standalone (no samba/cups involvment whatsoever)
Thought I'd post this as I couldn't find much about it online. I have an HP3745 and am running Ubuntu 10.04. For some reason I couldn't get anything from the black ink cartridge in test mode or for real. The printer would go through the motions but would return a blank page. Turns out it was because my COLOUR ink cartridge was empty!! Solution was simply to select print in grayscale. Also I find with this particular printer HPCUPS works better than HPLIP.
Is there a way to print from a Canon MX 330 All-in-One printer in Ubuntu 9.04? I'm trying to print through a Linksys WRT54G router. The printer is physically connected to a Desktop PC running Windows Vista (64-bit).I've tried installing the printer though CUPS to no avail. I tried the iP4600, iP3600 and iP2600 drivers and none of them have worked for me. I've even tried the Gutenprint PIXMA IP4600 drivers.
From my Ubuntu Server 8.10, when i attempt to print to my network printer(Brother HL2700cn) it prints garbage and multiple blank pages. I also tried installing the Brother print driver (BR2700_2_GPL.ppd) as instructed, placing the file in directories: /usr/share/cups/model and directory /var/spool/lpd and restarted cups: /etc/init.d/cups restart. after all that, i get the same results, garbage and multiple blank pages. the printer has a static ip address
I am currently running Lucid on my system and can't seem to get my printer on a Windows XP computer to print documents sent from my Ubuntu computer. I can see the Windows XP computer in Nautilus under Network and can even access the shared files on the Windows computer with no problem. I have been able to install the Windows shared printer on my Ubuntu computer using System>Administration>Printing>Add>Network Printer>"Windows Printer via Samba" without any error messages. The problem is that whenever I send a printing job to the shared printer, the printer acts like it is going to start printing then automatically stops just right before the paper is going to be fed. I have memorized the noises my printer makes right before the paper gets fed. That is how I know it stalls right before the paper is about to be fed.
When I check the print queue on my Windows computer, its status is "printing", but it never does. I have tried this with two different HP printers (Deskjet 3940 & PSC 1410), and it is the exact same problem on both.
I apologize if I'm a little wordy. I'll give the problem, then a detailed list of my setup (to help troubleshoot). Problem: I can't print from Ubuntu 10.4 on my Win7 shared printer. I also can't connect to the Win7 computer sharing the printer (probably a related problem).
1.) I click on Places, Network, Windows Network. I get an error that says "Unable to mount location, Failed to retrieve share list from server."
2.) I click on System, Administration, Printing, Add, Printer, Network Printer, Windows Printer via SAMBA, Browse..., and I get this error "No Print Shares, There were no print shares found. Please check that the Samba service is marked as trusted in your firewall configuration. To do this select System->Administration->Firewall from the main menu."
Network Configuration: I have a wireless/wired network (using a router) where the Ubuntu machine connects wirelessly and the Win7 machine connects wired. The Win7 machine is on a Win7 homegroup and custom named "workgroup". There is a username/password to log into the Win7 Machine. My other Win7 laptop connects just fine to the Win7 desktop's shared printer (and network drives). I know it isn't a issue of it not working (at least with other Win7 machines)
Problem: I'm assuming there is probably a setting in Win7 that needs adjusting (although I've looked at about everything I can find). I also don't know much about Ubuntu so it could very well be something I need to setup in Ubuntu. I checked already to make sure that SAMBA and the smbfs plugin is installed.
I have a HP c4100 series printer connected to my Ubuntu computer. This computer prints just fine. I also have a Windows Vista computer that's connected to the Ubuntu HP via CUPS (by installing network printer with path of http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:631/printers/printername). This computer also prints just fine. My problem is I just got a new Windows 7 laptop, and connected it to the HP via CUPS the same way as the Vista machine. It installed fine. However the Win7 Laptop will not print. When I try to print, it acts like it is going to print, but never gives an error and the file never makes it into the printer queue (on either the win7 or ubuntu machines, i have tried printing with both queues open to see what happens).
Things I have already changed: On the Ubuntu machine:Changed all the printer settings on printer to allow any and all connections including printing from the internet. Edited the /etc/samba/smb.conf to allow CUPS printing and allow guest access On the Win7 machine:Fixed my LAN security settings (disabled require 128bit encryption, send LM and NTLM responses)
Reinstalled printer several times. I have googled this issue almost every day for a month and tried every setting that I have came across (changed them back if it didn't help). So far nothing has worked for me, and this is my last ditch effort to get this printer working. Does anyone know why I can not print from my Windows 7 machine to a printer connected to my Ubuntu machine? Especially when I CAN print from the UBUNTU and Vista machines.
I've run into issue on my Linux machine (running 10.04) when I want to print. When I go to System>Administration> Printing, I cannot find the printer connected to the network through my dad's computer, running OS X 10.7.
How can I get my MacBook running OS/X on my wireless network to recognize and print to an HP OfficeJet 6110 printer attached to a desktop workstation that's running Ubuntu Linux 11.04. It had no problems finding the printer when it was attached to a Windows machine, but you know about Windows...
I'm running Fedora 11 and printing to both an HP Laser Jet 4Plus and HP Office Jet 7130 via a Windows 7 PC. I have a UID/PWD account on the PC that differs from that on the Fedora, also one that is identical UID/PWD to that used in Fedora. This has worked fine until "recently" (noticed it in ~last week or 2). Suddenly I'm being asked repeatedly to authenticate to print, neither account credentials are working. I get the message "Tree connect failed (NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED)" and I get nowhere. I tried delete and reinstall the printers in Fedora, that works OK, can "see" them in setup on the Windows 7 host just fine. But can't get past the repeated authentications ...? I'm guessing something has changed in Fedora updates because this used to work with same Windows 7 PC in prior weeks.
I'm having trouble with printing a PDF that is in landscape mode. When I tell Okular or Adoble Reader to print a document in landscape mode, the text is Illegible. If I tell it to print as portrait mode, then I can read the text but the end is cut off and there is no way for me to tell Okular or Adobe Reader what the margins are. That option was grayed out.
I'm having another problem: When I cancel the job from the CUPS interface, it says it canceled the job but the printer keeps going and finishes whether I want it to or not. With 11.2, I was able to have it set up so that when I told it to stop the printer, it did so right away. Why can't I get the printer to stop in the middle of a job if I see something wrong with it so that I don't have to waste ink?
Don't know where this should go, so I put it here for starters! I want to print documents on both sides of an A4 sheet, using a Brother HL-1230 printer. Is there a way of getting the odd numbered pages out first (then a pause?) and the even numbered pages after? To do this manually is tedious on a long (14 page) doc. Way back in the days of that other op. sys. I had a program (WordPerfect?) Whose printer driver would do this. Is there one for Ubuntu?
Trying to add printers to a new install, and system-config-printer doesn't start. CUPS is working, and I am able to add and manage printers using http://localhost:631, but I would prefer to use the applet.
Code: lee@tycho:~$ system-config-printer Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/share/system-config-printer/system-config-printer.py", line 104, in <module>
Similar problems (possibly different causes) include [URL], from only three weeks ago, but no responses, and this one [URL], which I don't think is the issue because I don't seem to have an "extra" python install at /usr/local/bin/python.
I have dualboot between Windows XP and Ubuntu 9.04. I have HP deskjet prineter, model=D1560. Ubuntu installed the printer automatically. The problem is that when I print any page in Ubuntu, the printer does not print anything and eject the page blank. But Windows XP is printing finely.
I have installed an HP LaserJet 2200 network printer using CUPS successfully and can print test pages and stuff from OpenOffice, Evince etc. But no luck printing from lpr. Using lpstat seems to suggest all is well:
$ lpstat -t scheduler is running system default destination: HP-LaserJet-2200 device for HP-LaserJet-2200: socket://192.168.10.42:9100 HP-LaserJet-2200 accepting requests since Tue 19 Oct 2010 14:01:50 NZDT printer HP-LaserJet-2200 is idle. Enabled since Tue 19 Oct 2010 14:01:50 NZDT Ready to print.
If I now try to print 'test.txt' using: $ lpr test.txt nothing happens. Try calling the printer by name: $ lpr -P HP-LaserJet-2200 test.txt lpr: HP-LaserJet-2200: unknown printer
I have added my user name to the lp and lpadmin groups. Trying the above as 'sudo' results in the same result. The only thing I've noticed is that when printing something from OpenOffice, in the document print status I get the message 'Processing - not connected?', although printing still works.
I have a windows machine on my lan with a printer attached. I have samba running on my F11 laptop and I can use it to access shared files on the windows machine. But how can I use the printer from fedora? When I go to Administor>Printers then I just get an empty list, even after pressing 'rescan'. Do I have to change some firewall/samba configuration? If not then where else would I see the printer?
In December I finally filled up my root partition and broke Suse 11.1. I therefore resized my partitions and installed Suse 11.3 on /root. I didn't not touch my /home partition.
Last week I had a paper jam in the printer. This has been cleared and as far as I know the printer is now fine. However the printer will not print. In url, it says printing has been paused, but I cannot find resume printer/printing anywhere.
I have tried Google, but the instructions do not appear to match where I would find 'resume printer'.I am able to provide further information.
I am not sure if this is the right place for this or not, but I am having a problem getting my HP6300 series all in one printer to print photo's with proper colors, all colors seem to run. I have hplip installed and set up to print photo's and it still prints colors like runs instead of correct.
I'm running Red Hat Linux and CUPS 1.2.4. I can print a test page to a Win 7 shared printer ok. However, when I issue the lpr command from a user or root, it won't print. The CUPS message is "Remote host did not accept data file (1)" and the job just hangs till I cancel it. The only thing I can tell that is different is that when the test page from CUPS is generated, it uses user "guest". When I try to print it using the lpr command, the user is "eddie" or "root". I tried adding a user account named "eddie" to the Win 7 box, I can print successfully from both CUPS and users on several other Win XP boxes.
I have a recently installed dual boot system with Centos 5.2 and Fedora 10. I connect across a LAN to a network printer HP Laserjet 1320n I have been through the printer installation / setup on both systems Fedora works fine, Centos doesn't want to know. Sending anything to print just adds it to a queue that is never printed.
I have looked at the printer management through Firefox browser localhost.localdomain:631 If I send a test page from here (CUPS) it reports the document as printed, but the printer just sits there blinking an orange light indicating an error.
I have a 64 bit laptop and i am using the 64 bit version of ubuntu 10.10. i am wanting to setup a lexmark x4650 printer which has wifi built in and can do wireless printing. i have the driver from lexmark installed but it is the i386 version which i know is the 32 bit version. and i know that 32 and 64 bit versions don't work so well together. i've gone through all kinds of help on these forums and for some reason when go to print a test page, it comes back with an error statement. i will have to try it again so i can post it verbatim.
i have a similar thread in the 64 bit thread so if it can be locked or deleted and have just this one, that would be cool. this same printer is not connected to any computer for it's wireless printing ability. it is a stand alone but all of my families laptops can use it since they have the software on theirs. they are using windows 7 which is what i have also, but i am switching to linux since i am not a fan of microsoft at all. i despise everything they do. i love linux and the community around it and i just want to get this printer setup so i can make the last and final switch. this is the only thing holding me up.
I've recently decided to migrate the infrastructure in my workplace from ubuntu to fedora, every thing except the printers went perfectly. When I try to print as an user It just throws an generic error and stops, as a root it doesn't even show the error.

It worked fine in debian and ubuntu, so we can assume that the drivers are ok, any ideas?
i recently installed fedora 14 xfce and i have a printer laserjet p1007 hp connected. the printer gets detected but there is an error while installation (i.e when i run hp-setup) it gives an error that some binary drivers missing. i refreshed the package list also. but still the driver does not get installed..
I want to print from my linux box to my win7 pc that has a shared printer. I have cups installed and tried to add pritner using samba, but was unsuccesful, gave me an error when trying to add. The guide i followed is: Yet another Linux to Windows printing tip -- Debian Admin The printer model is a dell 2330d laser printer, it is not in cups, so i added the ppd file i got off the dell support site. I am aware that there is a native suse driver, but i want to print to the windows printer.If possible I would like to know how to do this via command line instead of the GUI.
