Ubuntu :: Installed An HP LaserJet 4250 Using The Hp 4250 Postscript Driver - Message - Getting Printer Information
Mar 18, 2010
I have installed an HP LaserJet 4250 using the hp 4250 postscript driver. The printing works but when I click on File->Print on any application (Open Office or Document Viewer), the message "Getting printer information" is beside the printer name and the print button is disabled. After 5 or so seconds, the print button becomes enabled and I can print. This happens every time but did not when I first installed the printer. I would prefer to determine the cause rather than delete and re-install the printer.
I finished making a custom build OS of openSUSE 11.4 using suse studio but when I tried running the LIVE DVD in a laptop with an ATi Mobility Radeon HD 4250, I got a black screen. Everything from the word go seemed fine showing everything from the loading Kernel message, but the screen that is supposed to show the user accounts is surprisingly absent and only a black screen in its place.
I have only seen this problem with ATi graphics, Intel graphics work just fine. I haven't tested it on a laptop with nvidia. I'm using the default openSUSE 11.4 Kernel (Kernel-Desktop 22.214.171.124-0.5.1), Xorg-X11-driver-video-radeonhd 1.3.0_20100512_80ba041-2.1, Mesa 7.10.2-7.3.1, Xorg-X11 7.6-43.44.1. I have listed these few packages contained in the build, but I'm not sure where to look or what I may be missing.
I am running Lucid 64bit on my laptop and been trying to install a canon printer driver LBP3200 on it. There are some comprehensive tutorials that I have been following and they worked on my desktop. However the last thing I have to do is
Code: sudo update-rc.d ccpd defaults 50 which gives me the error
Code: update-rc.d: warning: /etc/init.d/ccpd missing LSB information update-rc.d: see [URL] System start/stop links for /etc/init.d/ccpd already exist.
I checked in /etc and I do not have the rc.d dir! I have rc0.d through to rc6.d and rcS.d dir, but no rc.d one. Is this normal? and if so how can I get the correct file to start/stop the ccpd daemon for the printer? At the moment the print command brings up the printer icon for about ten seconds and then it disappears and nothing happens.
I am trying to install a HP deskjet 1000-J110a. I downloaded a driver package thing, and I guess I unpacked it, and I made it, and I thought I installed it. I am totally confused and my brain hurts. The printing troubleshooter is telling me: Missing Printer Driver
Printer 'Deskjet-1000-J110-series' requires the 'foomatic-rip-hplip' program but it is not currently installed. I found something that is the 'foomatic-rip-hplip', but what the heck do I do with it?
I am running F15 Beta i686 (Gnome3) Desktop on a dual-core, 4 Mb DDR2 system. I already installed hplip and hpijs drivers and connected HP LaserJet 5MP printer to the parallel port of my PC. Set up was by running "system-config-printer", adding device URI=parallel:/dev/lp0, and selecting approriate driver (CUPS+Gutenprint (en) for the printer. However, when I chose to print a test page, nothing came out and the printer window says the printer is not connected. This is even though I can print from Fedora14 installed on the same PC.
how to install my hp laserjet 1010 printer on red hat el5.when i connect my printer, a new window pops up detecting a new hardware but my printer's name or the driver is not listed. i have the printer's driver cd which is for windows.
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've been banging my head for two days now trying to get my HP Laserjet 1020 to work. I've gotten the drivers working on the box itself (Opensuse 11.3 x64), but I couldn't get it to print from my laptop (Ubuntu Lucid). Ideally, I'd like to end up with a functional printer which can be used either from the desktop machine (Opensuse) or from the laptop (Ubuntu) through NFS.
After so many attempts at fixing it, I've not made it such that I can't print at all, from either system. I'm considering re-installing Opensuse (or just going back to Kubuntu, which recognizes the printer without a hitch). But before I do so, I figured I'd ask here.
Here are my issues, and attempts at solution:
1) I tried adding the printer both through CUPS, through YAST and through hp-setup, using the hpijs driver. Each time the printer is recognized, but a test page won't print.
2) I tried building the foo2zjs driver, as outlined here: HowTo Install a HP LaserJet 1020 printer in Suse 10.x, 11.x It came up with dependency problems repeatedly on the last step (sudo make install-hotplug) . I gave up when it told me that it was conflicting with an installed package (system-config-printer-udev) which was not installed.
3) Perhaps related problem: on the CUPS web interface, I get a "forbidden" message when I try to change the options on the CUPS server to allow remote access.
a) I've already added myself to the lp group.
b) I changed the permissions (+rx) on the /dev/lp0 to allow myself access
c) I'm able to get to the CUPS page on the client machine, so the port 631 (I think) must be open. I say "I think," because there's no option to allow CUPS in YAST firewall settings, for some reason.
I've been following guides here and there, but I'm afraid that I've borked my cupsd.conf file through all the edits. Here it is:
i used ubuntu maybe for a year but i dislike unity and i installed gnome 3 via ppa but it wasn't so stable.now i installed fedora on my netbook and really like!Gnome 3 is very stable but i have a problem with my printer.Fedora notices it plugged in my printer HP Laserjet p1005 but it doesn't find any drivers.
I am running Fedora 15 but about 1 week ago my Hp laserjet 1220 all-in-one printer stopped functioning. The OS recognizes the HP printer, but I cannot print any print job whatsoever. I have looked through the faq section and found no resolution for my conflict or problem. I have used Fedora on this system since Fedora 8.
I have a Windows print server (Win XP SP2) and a 1 opensuse client. I have setup cups as per the following document:
Printer Sharing: Windows Print Server for Suse/openSUSE Linux Clients [Samba and LPD]
I am not using Samba. The setup went fine, but I am not able to print to it. There are other clients (all Windows) that are printing fine to this print server. The following is what I see in the /var/log/cups/error_log:
[Job 3] recoverable: Unable to connect to printer; will retry in 30 seconds...
I am using DHCP in this LAN. Ping is working fine (client's hosts file updated with the print server's ip address.). This looks like a networking issue.
Did some one solved the problem how to install Laser Printer Canon LBP2900 at Squeeze? The driver (version 2.20; in the documentation stays that they were tested some of previous versions at Debian 5.04 or like) I found at the Canon's site doesn't wish to be installed at Squeeze, but somehow I succeeded at Ubuntu 10.04 and Ubuntu 10.10...
how possible it is if at all to get information out from remote printers?Mainly i'd like to know the printer trays the printer has available and how the printer has assigned names to those trays, in order for me to send print jobs to specific print trays and know that i'm using the correct tray name whereas currently its a guess and thus probably not workingI have lpr and have printcap file set-up and have no problems in printing, I just want to be able to specify more options and in order to do this i feel i need to probe the printer somehow to find out what options are available?
This is my first attempt with Yum and Fedora for that matter. I need to load a print driver and network driver for an MX860 printer. I downloaded the drivers and they are in the download folder. When I try to install I get what is below. How do I resolve? Do I need to identify where the driver is? If so, how?
[compaq@compaq ~]$ su -c'yum install cnijfilter-mx860series-3.10-1-i386-rpm.tar.gz' Password: Loaded plugins: refresh-packagekit updates/metalink | 15 kB 00:00 Setting up Install Process No package cnijfilter-mx860series-3.10-1-i386-rpm.tar.gz available. Nothing to do [compaq@compaq ~]$
I'm trying to add my Samsung SCX4500W printer to my opensuse 11.2 machine running KDE.From Yast->Printer->Add printerI am able to set the printer up, however there is no driver for my specific network printer. Samsung does provide a linux driver but I have no idea what I'm doing when installing peripherals on linux basically
Sometime during the morning of Feb 23, 2010, I accepted Update Manager's updates on both my desktop and my laptop, both of which are running Karmic and both of which have been regularly updated by Update Manager. Before the updates, which I think I saw included an update to CUPS, my Brother MFC-8820D printer had been running satisfactorily.
Since the updates, all the printer yields, in response to my attempts to print from either my desktop or my laptop, is the following six lines: ERROR NAME; configuration error COMMAND; setpagedevice OPERAND STACK; --dicttype---
Assuming I'm correct that CUPS was updated on Feb 23, is there some way to find out what the latest CUPS update involved, and/or how to return to a prior version?
I am getting the below message, when I try a start update manager? Could not initialize the package information An unresolvable problem occurred while initializing the package information.
