Ubuntu :: Printing With HP Officejet 6500A Plus ?

Aug 5, 2011

I have three computers with wireless and wired connections to a HP Officejet 6500A Plus all-in-one that I purchased a few months ago. Two of the three are running Ubuntu (versions 8.04 and 9.10). By Christmas, I'll be getting a new computer and upgrading to an Ubuntu v. 10.xx or 11.xx. In the first few weeks after I got the 6500, I had no trouble printing (although in 8 years using Linux, I've never been able to scan ...). For the last couple of weeks, however, I've been unable to print. I keep getting messages saying that the printer is not connected. I have re-installed the printer drivers and run hp-setup several times but to no avail. Its latest trick is to start spitting out paper with a line or more of ASCII symbols at a very rapid rate. The third computer is a Windoze 7 box that my son connects to wirelessly but he can no longer print as well.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: 11.4 - OfficeJet 6500A Job Completed But No Prints

Mar 15, 2011

I installed the 64-bit version of OpenSUSE 11.4 last week and tried to print from it today. I couldn't get anything to come out. I've tried both USB and network printing, and nothing ever works. Any attempt to print anything results in the HPLIP Status Service app telling me the job is "completed" immediately, with nothing printed, but the CUPS web interface reports "/usr/lib/cups/filter/hpcups failed".

It's connected to the network router and hp-setup discovers it when I use manual discovery and give it the IP address, but it still won't print even a test page, whether as root or as a user. I've also used the CUPS web interface to add my user to the list of users allowed to print, and added my user to the lp group. But I still get the same error and nothing ever prints.

Ubuntu :: HP OfficeJet 6310 All In One Printing Stops In Midway?

Jan 1, 2010

I have had good success with the HP OfficeJet 6310 printing and Karmic. However, recently when printing, the print job stops after a certain amount of pages ( when printing a multiple page document ). The first page almost always prints immediately. This issue occurs with PDFs, OO Writer documents and OO Spreadsheet documents. The printer status window on the printer shows "printing" and the print manager in Gnome shows printing. Sometimes the printing completes after several minutes. Other times I end up killing the job and powering down the printer.

Ubuntu :: Printing With Exact Size Photos And With Poor Auto Colour Printing But The Situation Remains Unchanged

May 31, 2010

I expected more from ubuntu 10.4 with regards to printing with exact size photos and with poor auto colour printing but the situation remains unchanged! for instance .. the photo size configurations for ubuntu/fspot/gimp and others are not compatible with my printers (HP and Brother) .. here in Europe a typical standard size photo (10x15inches or 150x100mm are not even on the Ubuntu listing? I have tried all listed possibilities including "custom" (which does not seem to ever work correctly?)and the result at best is photos with uneven boarders or at worse my printer goes a bit crazy with much wasted photo paper and expensive ink ...even photos selected for "no boarders" still produces photos with the self same uneven boarders.

I have tried pretty much everything over time following advice in this forum and including using HPlip and updating drivers required for my Brother printer but the root problem seemingly lies with the Ubunto photo size setup listing. Working with Ubuntu over the years I have found that it can do pretty much everything that Windows can do except for this dam ongoing photo quality and configuration problem.

Ubuntu :: No Color With HP Officejet 6500 Printer?

I have a HP Officejet 6500 E709a printer, everything works fine except that I cannot print with color. I go to admin, open the config for printer, and print the test page but I get no color. Also, in the properties of the printer I cannot see the level of the ink. It says this info is not provided by the printer.

Networking :: HP Officejet Printer Sharing

Oct 20, 2010

I just installed an HP Officejet 6200 on a Slackware 12.1 machine. It uses a USB interface. If I am on the machine, I can print to it with no problem. When I am on my Debian or Centos machines, I cannot. I have midified the cupsd.conf file to allow everyone to connect to it but so far have not had any success. Port 631 is open on all machines. I have explicitly added a hosts allow line in several portions of the conf file with no luck. If I use the cups interface on any of the machines using localhost:631 as the address, I can not only see the printer I can print to it, but I noticed, I am actually attached to the Slackware machine where the printer is located. Can someone suggest a debugging method to help?

Ubuntu :: HP Printer Officejet Pro 8000 Not Load Paper Properly

Aug 16, 2010

I have a HP Officejct Pro 8000 Printer hooked to UBUNTU 9.10 on a system 76 box. The printer is not loading paper properly. I see references to this issue on various websites and I saw at least one reference to new drivers but alas they were all for windows. I checked the repository and I have the latest and greatest HPLIP. Does this mean I have all of the latest drivers?

OpenSUSE Hardware :: HP OfficeJet 6110 Scanner Not Working?

Dec 18, 2009

I have a HP Office-Jet 6110 All-In-One for about 5 years now and I havve been using it on Suse and openSuse without a problem all these years. This morning I wanted to scan something and suddenly realised that the scanner is not working. I can print but not scan. i tried to set up the scanner using YaST like I have done for the past 5 years but it#s not working. Hpaio shows that no scanner is available for this driver. I can#t install the scanner. What has changed in 11.2 that devices that worked before are not working anymore?

OpenSUSE Hardware :: HPLIP With 11.2 64-bit - OfficeJet Pro L7680 - Don't Get The Printer To Work

Dec 5, 2009

after an update to 11.2 (from 11.1), 64 bit, I don't get the printer to work. I reinstalled the driver and checked in cups: it says that the printer is available and waiting for a job. When I send something to the printer, nothing happens. The priont job will be stopped immediately. The printer is properly connected: xsane finds the scanner, that is part of the printer, without a problem. The printer is also ok: I can copy documents, it just works fine.

OpenSUSE :: Hp-setup Wont Setup HP Officejet?

Aug 18, 2011

With new installs of openSuse 11.4 I've hit a printer problem. I can run hp-setup (or hp-toolbox) for the wireless Officejet j6410 and it is recognised. The right driver is selected. Then when I choose add printer it all falls over with the error message: error: Printer queue setup failed. Could not connect to CUPS Server Is user added to "lp" group(s) error: Fax queue setup failed. Please restart CUPS and try again.

The user is added to the lp group. I have this problem with my 64 bit desktop and 32 bit laptop installs of 11.4, it all worked perfectly in 11.2. I've used the Cups web interface to set up the printer now and can print from both machines, but I would prefer to use the hp-toolbox, which has several convenient features. Where do I go from here?

Ubuntu :: Printing Using LP Or LPR?

Mar 15, 2011

I have a label printer connected to a windows machine and its shared. And other windows machines can print to this label printer. But I need to be able to print to it from the linux box using lp or lpr. I have been following this article on how to get the labels printing, but I am unable to have any luck whatsoever.

Here is where I am at:
bennett@ezyvet:~$ smbclient -L AECRECEPTION -U administrator
Enter administrator's password:
Domain=[VSG] OS=[Windows 7 Professional 7600] Server=[Windows 7 Professional 6.1] .....

I also have done this:
bennett@ezyvet:~$ sudo lpadmin -p AECLABEL -h -i smb://AECRECEPTION/AECLABEL -P /home/bennett/drivers/zebra2844/zebra4.ppd
lpadmin: Unable to connect to server: Connection refused

The firewall on the windows machine has turned off. I can see 2 printers, cups cant find any more printers. It just says its searching for eternity. I believe the only reason why the 2 printers show up in cups is because they are network printers?

Ubuntu :: Can't Imagine Why Printing Is So Off?

May 2, 2010

I was running Ubuntu Karmic Koala in a Dell Optiplex 8200. I wasn't having any problems, but it was running a bit slow. To fix this, I loaded a new graphics card and loaded Lubuntu so I could use LXDE. LXDE worked fine, but the associations on PC Manager were broken, so I switched back to Gnome. Ever since then, I've had a few problems.

1) The desktop image is black and all the icons that should be there are gone. If I browse to the Desktop via terminal (or Nautilus) everything is still there. If I view the desktop setting via the desktop setting control, it's set there, too. However, when I shut down/log out, I briefly see the desktop I set, before all goes black.

2) Printing is now VERY slow. It takes about minutes per page. I assume there's some file I have to either edit or delete to restore the desktop appearance, but I can't imagine why printing is so off.

PS - I was going to add tags, but I can't seem to type any in - weird.

Ubuntu :: Printing GUI Not Working?

Aug 11, 2011

I am hopping to get some help with a printing application problem. When I go to System>Administration>Printing, I get nothing. I have found several possible solutions, but these did not work for me.

First, from Ubuntu Bugs, following the [URL]... But Bug 210738, file 04/02/2008, doesn't fix my issue. I did getting the following results by running 'system-config-printer' in a terminal:

tim@dell-desktop:~$ system-config-printer
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/share/system-config-printer/system-config-printer.py", line 104, in <module>


but this did not fix it either, At this point I ought to mention that I can print to my existing printers, but I wanted to add a new printer. I have no idea when this problem occurred, maybe when I upgraded from Ubuntu 8.4 LTS (Hardy Heron) to Ubuntu 10.4 LTS, but I can't be sure. To add the printer I followed this link {URL]... and was able to add the new printer.

But, after all is said and done, I think the GUI should just work, especially if we want Ubuntu to be more ubiquitous on the desktop.

Ubuntu :: Printing Crash For Some Applications Only?

Jan 6, 2010

I have a very weird printing problem, and don't really know where to look at to solve it.For some apps,printing works great (openoffice, acroread, kpdf, kghostview, Kolourpaint). For some others, the app just freezes when I click on "print" (gimp, firefox, "document reader", "image reader"). Maybe this is not the correct forum to ask this question, but I don't really see which one would be the best.
