Greetings,I am having some difficulty connecting to a shared printer on another CentOS system connected to a USB HP Photosmart C3180 printer. I am able to print locally, but I cannot co... [by tuxadelic]
Hi all,I have a Canon MP600 printer/scanner connected via USB to a small print- and scan-server running Arch (last update was yesterday). The printer is shared over the network and can be accessed from a Windows 7 client. But from time to time after 1-2 prints the printer crashes. I that happens, only a power disconnect can bring it back.
I have Fedora 17, KDE. I open Printer Configuration and choose New Printer. I a CUPS server error, "There was an error during the CUPS operation: ' cups-authorization-canceled'. The printer is plugged in.
I previously added a Photosmart-C2400 sucessfully.
I have an OSX Lion Server(OSX 10.7.5) acting as a CUPS(1.5.4) print server. I've added the network printer(Konica Minolta using Efi Fiery driver) and installed the appropriate drivers on the print server.
The issue I'm having is that when I try to add the shared printer on client device (OSX 10.8.2), the client is unable to download the printer driver.
Can anyone think of a way of Re-Sharing a Shared Printer? When I connect the shared printers to Server 2008 R2, it comes up as a network printer, and settings take affect on the host (not the server) so I can't Re-Share it.
The reason I need this is I have a number of workstations that run software in which I have to hardcode the printer name.
I have a clean install of Ubuntu 13.10, the printer is on a fixed IP address (10.1.1.205, set in the router, printer still gets this IP address via DHCP), and also connected to the workstation via the USB cable. I can add the printer either as a wifi printer or as a connected printer, selecting the printer type as a 'generic ZjStream' printer.
Nothing earth-shattering but... I have an HP Photosmart USB printer that I configured with HPLIP (which seemingly "exports" into CUPS). All is well until the printer is turned off and then back on again sometime later: somebody, somewhere automagically adds the printer to CUPS so that I have two, count 'em, printers defined.
