Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I'm not exactly sure when it happened (perhaps in the last month), but I can no longer print on photo paper using my Canon Pixma iP4600. This used to work fine, but now if I select any paper type other than "Plain Paper" it no longer prints.

I am just using the standard CUPS/Gutenprint PPD files and setup (in KDE). I have not changed this recently, but perhaps an update modified something?


All I can see in the error_log is

W [09/Oct/2012:19:09:50 +0200] failed to CreateProfile: org.freedesktop.ColorManager.AlreadyExists:profile id 'iP4600_series-Gray..' already exists
W [09/Oct/2012:19:09:50 +0200] failed to CreateProfile: org.freedesktop.ColorManager.AlreadyExists:profile id 'iP4600_series-RGB..' already exists
W [09/Oct/2012:19:09:50 +0200] failed to CreateDevice: org.freedesktop.ColorManager.AlreadyExists:device id 'cups-iP4600_series' already exists

Does it start to print, or does it produce an error message? Are there any messages in the logs at /var/log/cups that might be revealing? If so, you might post a link to them on pastebin.ubuntu.com or actually include in the question if you can quote a short set of lines. –  John S Gruber Oct 10 '12 at 2:02
    
It looks like data is sent to the printer (the light flashes), but then it just stops (presumably after all data is sent). It does not start printing. No sound is made, so it doesn't even attempt to grab paperp or anything. I've added the only error messages I could find to the question. –  edA-qa mort-ora-y Oct 10 '12 at 5:28
