On my Ubuntu machine, a network printer on LAN is recognized (by just selecting
Add a New Printer menu). Applications recognize it too. However the info shown on the printer panel ("System settings" --> "Printer") does not seem what Ubuntu obtains from the printer; it's IP address is
localhost, clicking "Jobs"-->"Show" always shows empty job list, and clicking "Print Test Page" doesn't do anything.
Probably because of that, I get an error when I try to print a pdf from
lpr: unsupported document-format application/vnd.adobe-reader-postscript
Quantal, acroread v9.5.5, Canon MG6330
With the same file, I can print without any problem from Mac OSX 10.8.4. Is there any workaround? And if let me know also if any information is needed. Thank you!
Update 6/14/2013) Thanks for the comments and answer. I managed to be able to print from Ubuntu. With @quidage's answer, I was able to "operate" printer;
Print Test Page sends "something" to the printer so that it beeps but without printing anything, and the admin web page on Ubuntu says the job is completed. Then I'm ashamed to say that I had to install driver...from this web site to select the printer I have.
