On my new computer a 64 bits - I have a 64 bits Ubuntu 11.10 installed. Adding network printer with settings for a generic MG8100 printer:
Location: host-ip Device URI: lpd://host-ip/LPT5 model: Canon PIXMA MG8100 - CUPS+Gutenprint v5.2.7 Simplified
When I tried to make a test print this happen:
- Ubuntu send a print to the printer
- The printer shows on the display that it is working
- Ubuntu acknowledge with pop-up messages that print job was completed
- The printer stop working on the display and nothing happens, no print is produced
There are no errors as far as I can see it.
Do anybody knows what to do, or what is wrong?
Remarks On an old computer I have the Ubuntu 11.10 32 bits installed and the same printer connected with "Device URI: cnijet:/88-87-17-08-64-56" and that works fine on this computer. I tried to used that instead of the lpd setting on the new computer but then I got a cups client error.
I hope some body can help me with this.
