Google finally added native printing in Android 4.4 KitKat. At first thought, you might not think you have much use for it, but it’s actually quite convenient. Lets say you just came home from an outing in which you took some pictures. You can easily send a few shots right to your printer. The same goes for web pages.
I'm using 12.04 LTS and have the printer installed and have been using it but it only prints first 3 labels then stops. I'm printing a PDF file and have tried this in several PDF viewers (including built in Document Viewer, Adobe Reader, etc.) I don't know if it's a java issue or what.
I have a HP 5510 and FC#16. While printing a job, got frustrated at several extra unnecessary pages that were being printed, and, unable to somehow tell the printer to only print the pages required, hit the on/off button and turned off the printer. When we turned the printer back on, nothing would print.
It's been messing up a lot lately, as in, delays several seconds before printing, then once it starts to print, it takes a long time. It use to print as soon as you would click "Print". But now, it's extremely slow and I'm not sure why. It's not that old. Bought it about a year ago and it worked just fine. But lately, the main problem is printing pictures.
I have attached a usb printer to an old eeePC running 32bit 14.04. The cups server is working, I can print test pages via the CUPS web interface from the eeePC and from LAN connected computers (also running Ubuntu 14.04). I have installed the printer as a network printer on my LAN connected computer but when I try to print from LibreOffice Writer nothing happens.
