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.
I have a FC11 box, with an HP prineter attached. 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.
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.
Code: # Show troubleshooting information in error_log. LogLevel debug
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 know my driver works and that cups is up and running, because I can print off test pages to my heart's content, but I can't get any actual documents printed. I'm connected over the network at work to a Japanese NEC MultiWriter 3650n (it seems to be Japanese-only---I could find on drivers was in Japanese). It shows up in System=>Administration=>Printing. I set it as the default printer, and, as I said, it prints off test pages without a hitch. But whenever I open, say, a PDF and try to print it, the document appears to get sent, but never actually prints, and never shows up in the print queue (while the completed test pages do).
I installed my epson stylus tx420w through cups web interface. I used the PPD file provided by the driver recommended in linuxprinting.org.But when I try to print the test page (or anything else), nothing is printed. According to the diagnostics, the printer status is "Processing page 1...", but it won't go beyond that.I've already tested it, it's fine. But won't work in ubuntu. Don't know what's going on.
I just installed openSUSE 11.4 on my 2 home machines. My home network lies behind a nat router but I still use the external zone setting for my firewalls. In the past to enable network printing between the two computers I opened TCP and UDP port 631. Yast would then see the remote printer, set it up and all was good. This time Yast sees and sets up the remote printer as usual. When I print the test page nothing happens. Checking the cups admin page at localhost:631 on the host machine shows the printer is set up to share but nothing is in the print que. Printing works just fine on the host computer.
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.
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.
I have a couple of large-format printers (Epson R2400, HP 9650) which I only use infrequently. If they are not used very often, they dry out, the print heads get packed up, it's an expensive mess to deal with when times comes to run off some prints. The printers are physically connected to a Windows machine to which my Ubuntu computer is networked.It would be helpful if there was a utility that could initiate a test page print job on the machines, which could be scheduled to run once a week or so. I've had no luck finding such a thing for Windows
I've recently installed F15 LXDE RC from the livecd and connected my USB Brother All-In-One MFC-5440cn printer. After following the Brother installation page, the Cups & LPR drivers are installed but when I'm in the cups page (http://localhost:631/admin), the printer will not print a test page or print from any application. The LCD panel on the printer does show 'receiving data' but nothing comes out. The last version of Fedora I had running was F13 and the same printer worked fine.
Are there any other printer drivers I need to install besides the Brothers? The printer does show up in the Print Manager but nothing prints. I did have this same type of issue with Mageia Beta 1 and ended up installing a2ps, which wasn't included in the original print drivers, and it is now printing. So I had to install a2ps with F15 but still no print output. Something must have changed with the recent distros causing this. After looking at the output of dmesg I see this:
Code: WARNING! power/level is deprecated; use power/control instead [14.867397] udev-configure-printer: add /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:13.2/usb1/1-3/1-3.2/1-3.2:1.0 [14.867991] udev-configure-printer: parent devpath is /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:13.2/usb1/1-3/1-3.2 [14.869115] udev-configure-printer: Device vendor/product is 04F9:016D [14.880470] udev-configure-printer: MFG:Brother MDL:MFC-5440CN SERN:- serial:BROM5F412304 [14.880520] usbcore: registered new interface driver usblp [15.902920] udev-configure-printer: failed to connect to CUPS server; giving up .....
Any idea why it's failing to connect to Cups or any idea how to find out? Is it possible to have too many USB devices connected? I'm using a 4 port usb hub in use and also using a usb mouse/keyboard connected.
I connect my laptop to several different networks and need to print in each of them when I am connected there. In the past (ie 12.2 and earlier) I solved this by running a cups server on the laptop and having it poll the appropriate cups servers in each network.
I was thinking that perhaps in 13.0 I could bypass having the cups server on the laptop and that KDE would "see" the various cups servers available. However this does not seem to work...
I've set up a cups printing server using ubuntu 10.04.1 LTS. The printer's a HP Laser Jet 1018 I can connect to it over vpn using openvpn from my netbook which is also running ubuntu 10.04.1. I can connect to the printer all right and test page prints without a problem. But if I try to print anything else, it take at least 5 minutes before the job is successfully send and printed out.
Also, on the client side, for example, the file size would like 500k, and when it finally prints out, the file size on the server side is less than 10k. The file is a black and white document, and from what I can tell, the printed page is not missing any information.
I am running 9.10. I have a HP Photosmart 7350 printer. I have it installed and printing. But the issue I am dealing with is that it will print a full page and then print a blank page..then a full page..then a blank page. Actually they aren't completely blank..it shows half of "2 of 6" or whatever page it is on. Like it cuts that in half and prints the 2nd half of "2 of 6" onto a separate new page.
I use .htaccess to deny all ip addresses except certain to an internal wiki on a subdomain.
If access is denied to the homepage users are shown the Fedora test page instead of my own custom 403 error page. When I go to a page - not home - I see a standard 403 error page.
Additionally, a 403 Forbidden error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request. Apache/2.0.54 (Fedora) Server at wiki.domain.com Port 80. What am I missing here? Seems like my ErrorDocument is not being reached..
I have a FC12 machine installed with CUPS and a CUPS-PDF printer. Printer are shared and works fine with this URL:
I have both client machine Windows XP and Windows 7. Both has setup the above printer and print fine without any problem. I can get the PDF file from windows test print. The only problem is I face is wait for around 20 seconds for printer dialog prompt out when I press print button in Windows 7. However, my windows XP never t have this problem. The printer dialog prompt out immediately when I press print button.
I successfully installed cups on my fedorabox, I can manage it through the web interface on port 631. I added the hplip and installed a HP Deskjet printer. However, when I want to print a test page I get the following error: "no pages found". The print job is in a stopped state...
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.
I cannot print pdf files. I have tried using okular and xpdf. The documents display in the program, but print preview shows a blank page. The printer then sends out blank pages. I have tried printing on 2 different printers using usb cables. Using terminal to process the commands shows error:
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.
Anyway im trying to do a simple thing pointed out in the thread title. Everything is set up, cups-pdf works, in dosemu.conf lpt1 command is "lpr" printer-timeout is 10... I "work" in an accounting agency that has a program written in clipper back in 1992. Apparently some prints from this program produce text/plain and some produce application/octet-stream. text/plain is printed. The later is always aborted. I have uncommented the lines in mime.types and mime.convs. Which are located in /usr/share/cups/mime.
I'm not looking to setup a print server. I want to print documents TO an existing network printer while I'm logged in via ssh to my Ubuntu Server 10.4 command line shell. Things like admin emails, pdf docs, etc.
All the clients on my LAN are able to print directly to the network printer without any help from the Ubuntu Server. I don't want to setup CUPS on the server unless that's the only way to print from the server itself to a networked printer.
Do I need CUPS or can I print from the command line in some other way?
I'm doing work at a home office that uses all Ubuntu computers. They have wireless printing setup on a few computers using CUPS. One of the computer's wireless printing isn't working. could someone please help me with getting this set up? Is this something really basic that most people would understand how to do?
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 am doing work at an office that only uses Linux Ubuntu 9.10 . They have wireless printing setup on all of the computers there, except one of them isn't working. I was not the one who setup the wireless printers so I'm not clear on how to do this.
I am facing a peculiar issue when printing Japanese text through CUPS (though I am not sure if this is the right forum).
I developed a Java application (that uses a graphical object to print to a PrinterJob class) that prints text (of Japanese characters) to a printer. When I login in en_US/en_UK locale, the Japanese characters get printed from my Java app just fine. However, when I login in ja_JP and give a print job through my Java app, no Japanese text is printed at all. I get characters from only within the ASCII subset printed instead. I am using Serif and Courier New fonts in my app. Relevant details are:
In ja_JP, a@a:/usr/share/cups/charsets$ fc-match serif:lang=ja ttf-japanese-mincho.ttf: "Sazanami Mincho" "Regular" a@a:/usr/share/cups/charsets$ fc-match sans serif:lang=ja ttf-japanese-gothic.ttf: "VL Gothic" "regular"
I am running 10.04 beta2 and have installed cups-pdf printing. I can print to the PDF printer and it works fine saving the file to ~/PDF. It saves it with the PDF extension as expected. I am trying to save the file by default to a windows share. I changed the DEVICE URI line to smb://HOME/SERVER/PDF. When I print, the job shows up on the windows share but without a PDF extension
