Ubuntu :: Can't Delete Job From Queue - Can't Print XP
Aug 23, 2010
The Gnome Print Manager found the printer with no problems. The correct driver was available - so I installed it. The printer shows up when called by a print job I want to send. The queue pretends to process it. The queue states "completed." Then Nothing comes out of the printer. XP shows the print job as pending. Still nothing comes out of the printer. And I can't delete the job from the Ubuntu queue (because that lying SOB tells me the job is completed). I can't print from XP to that printer until I delete or cancel the Ubuntu job (from the XP queue) - or clear the XP print queue (by deleting spool files). Permissions on that printer are not an issue. Printing from Ubuntu to that printer worked OK on earlier versions of Ubuntu.
I'm running Kubuntu 10.10 with a Laserjet 5M printer. When I attempt to print a job from Firefox or from Okular, the job never gets onto the print queue. However, I can print test pages on the printer and also print from OpenOffice, so this seems to be app-dependent. I know the jobs aren't being queued because the job number doesn't increase (as shown by the jobs for the test pages). Both Firefox and Ocular give every indication that the print job has been processed correctly.
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.
I have 2 printers plugged into a Windows XP PC (an Epson Stylus Photo RX580, and an HP Laserjet 1020) with full sharing on and everything, and is shared with other Windows PCs via the network I have set up. It has worked perfect. But today I added a PC running Ubuntu 9.10 and and can't figure out for the life of me what I am doing wrong. I installed both of the printers via the GUI in Administration, and both of them are detected and Ubuntu says they're working. But when I put something in the queue to print it stays there with the status "pending".
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.
I have no idea what's going on. I've had this machine running for over a year, and it's been great. A month or so ago, I realized that jobs weren't going to the printer. When i VNC'd in, I noticed that print jobs would show up in the queue as "Processing" briefly, then disappear.

I've even reinstalled the OS (not just for this reason) to no avail. Printer is dete cted without issue, I just can't use it.
I'm running openSUSe 11.3 on a laptop and the printer is connected to my desktop which is running Windows XP. I have the printer and several folders and drives shared. I can see the folders and drivers on my laptop but I cannot get the printer to actually print. It is an HP printer but I am not using HPLIP. I can send a print job to the queue and the printer resets itself like it's going to print but nothing else happens and the print job just sits in the queue until I hit cancel and restart then printer.
my ERP is sending multiple xml files to my queue and printing daemon reads each files and send it to windows printer (queue) where another software that uses each file and prints one document at a time.I would like to control first part when ERP send XML file I would like printing daemon to send files to windows queue in order the files came in from ERP. Currently it send it in random order. (i think it's based on how fast it can process, size of file..ect)
We have a lpr server for printing (not CUPS for compatibility with complicated domain/systems). We configured our linux systems -- RHEL4, RHEL5, and Ubuntu 10.04 -- so that lpr is one of the gtk print possiblities by adding 'gtk-print-backends = "lpr,pdf,file"' to gtkrc. This works great for several gtk-enabled applications like Acrobat Reader (acroread).
However, Firefox 3+ (tested 3.6.3 & 3.0.19) doesn't actually queue any lpr jobs until after quitting the application.
CUPS was not originally installed on my server, I have installed it but cannot print to my network printer. On my laptop, I can... they are both running the same version of Debian. What could be missing?
Here are some details...
I have two computers running the same version of Debian. One is a server with no GUI and the other is my laptop with GDM installed. My laptop (which prints with no problem) is connected via Wifi. My server is connected directly to the router via Ethernet. I cannot print from the server.
The printer is a Canon Pixma MP495 that connects to the router via Wifi. I have downloaded drivers for the printer from [url] and installed them successfully using dpkg on both computers.
Right now I have a regular text file that I am using for a test page. To print from my laptop (with success) I type:
This does not work from the server. What could I be missing?
My system have problem to route mail to our mail server, some mails store to mail queue, I use the command "mailq" have the below output, can advise if I want to delete a specific mail "ofdaf8fafag8sgfas", what can I do?

Since I changed my System from openSUSE 11.3 x86_64 to openSUSE 11.4 x86_64 my printer (Samsung ML-2850 via USB) seizes to function (clean installation). The printer connects to two machines via a KVM-switch. On the other machine (Windows 7 x64/Windows XP x64) the printer is working fine. This did not change when I switched the Cables/KVM-ports. In addition, when I was using openSUSE 11.3 x86_64 the printer also worked fine. All necessary CUPS-packages are installed:
I installed SuSE 11.2 64-bit on a new computer without any printer attached. When I read the manual for the mainboard, I discovered to my delight that it actually has a parallel port, it's just not connected. I moved the cable from an old desktop and put it into my new desktop. After enabling the port in the BIOS setup, the Hardware Information dialog in yast correctly shows that I have a HP LaserJet 1100 (/dev/lp2).
How do I configure the printer? "Printer" in yast tells me "There is no print queue". When I click "Add" yast tries to detect a printer and gives up with the message "No connection selected". I can't add a selection, however. "More connections" gives me the exact same error message. The "Connection Wizard" allows me to select "Parallel Port", but then complains about missing connections again. The cups demon is running. I don't have /dev/lp2, is that the problem?
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:
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....?
Just installed drivers for Lexmark pro200 - S500 series. However although it is recognised by the system and has a tick by its name, And tells me it is connected via usb file goes to print que but will not print. Also tells me it is Printing - localhost! is this correct?.
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.
How can I combine multiple single page prints into a single print job? For example, using Firefox on Linux one can print a web page such that each sheet of paper has four pages printed upon it. I would like to combine several separate web pages so that for example, web-page-a, web-page-b and web-page-c (each less than one print page long) are printed on a single sheet of paper.
I would like to do this without having to use some form of image editor to combine and manage manually created temporary files.
SO after using Testdisk to recover some images, the folders recup_dir.1 & 2 have saved in my FIle System area, when ever I try to press delete noting happens. I have also tried rm -f -rrm -f -fIt still dont delete, I have also deleted my user account and made a new one, but the files are still there.
Why is there no Delete when I right click like there is with Windows in ubuntu? Pretty much everything else is there like new folder and so on Is there some way to add it? Also why when i delete something does it not ask me if I am sure that i want to delete that file?
I just can't stand knowing that there's a slight problem with my PC.I have roughly 12.5 Gigs of files, mostly movies that are multiple clones of a particular movie (which was an entirely different problem altogether) and I CANNOT DELETE THESE THINGS! There has to be a simple way to do it from terminal, problem is, I can't seem to find the trash directory in terminal.
