This topic is old i know but if someone need to know a way to setup a printer, here it is: I just used the software "Printing". It comes with ubuntu and will find the driver automatically. The printer XP-305 works just fine. Give it a try.

This software is Panasonic Printer Driver for Linux. You can print from applications by using CUPS (Common Unix Printing System) which is the printing system for Linux. http://panasonic.net/pcc/support/fax/common/table/linuxdriver.html

The installed printers are stored in /etc/cups/printers.conf, and their drivers in /etc/cups/ppd/*.ppd. I don't know if there's a way to tell cups to store printer configuration in another location, but you can backup those files before re-installation: sudo service cups stop mkdir ~/cups-bkp sudo cp -a /etc/cups/printers.conf /etc/cups/ppd/ ~/cups-bkp/ ...

Yes, it's supported (I have two in my work). But if you use any other driver (yes, I tested Postscript and hpcups from latest hplip version) and then you print anything to the printer... the printer won't stop printing copies. Infinite copies bug!? So to fix this you need use the driver Foomatic/pxlmono or hpijs (recommend because it have more fast ...

I also had a problem getting the Brother drivers to work on Ubuntu 13.10 (saucy). What I found was that my box (System 76 Galago Ultrpro) is a 64 bit system (amd64) but the Brother drivers are 32 bit (x86). I downloaded the GNU C compiler multilib utilities [gcc-4.n-multilib] and the drivers worked fine. If your machine is 64 bit arch you might want to ...

Download the CUPSwrapper driver and the LPR driver from the Brother website and follow the directions provided on the resulting download page.

I had the same problem, and I resolved it just by running the Cups service: service cups start It looks that the HP install script is actually checking if the service is started to infer if the package is installed.

Printing from JavaScript isn't supported actually by the DYMOLabel JavaScript framework in Linux because it needs the DYMO label software which is not available for Linux. That's the reason the page to test your setup didn't work. You can follow their developer blog to see if they add Linux support in the future -> Blog

I just installed Ubuntu on an Acer Aspire circa 2010 and a ThinkPad X61. I spent several hours trying to get my Canon Pixma iP2600 to work with advice from several sites. Some wanted me to type many terminal commands. None worked. Finally found this one, it’s simple, and works perfectly: ...

In this excercise grep, sed, and awk will be your friends. Here's a hint for the first problem: Parsing the IP from the line of junk This will work if each IP is on it own line, surrounded by garbage, with @ signs on each side of the numbers.

This is consequence of an very old bug in CUPS. So to fix this, just edit the file /etc/init/smbd.conf: sudo gedit /etc/init/smbd.conf Then replace the line: start on (local-filesystems and net-device-up) For this: start on (local-filesystems and started cups and net-device-up) I have successful in Ubuntu Saucy (13.10).

I have a Canon MG5250. I had downloaded the .deb files from Canon's site but these installed driver version 3.4 which gave me limited functionality (e.g. only supported 600dpi). Having followed a mix of advice on this page (thank you!) I now have driver version 3.9 which supports up to 2400dpi amongst other features. Here's what I entered into a terminal: ...

I have a printer in the same line, the CLX-2160n I prefer these drivers, as they don't over-use the toner like the default drivers in Ubuntu, probably due to the extra colour profiles. http://foo2qpdl.rkkda.com/ You may have to visit the printer options and select color rather than monochrome.

I suggest you install the newer Ubuntu version. With a working internet connection: sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install cnijfilter-common It installs a newer version, as well, 3.80-1. Then you should be able to install your printer through System Settings > Printers.

Today I solved the riddle of why the new HP-Deskjet 2510 All-in-one, (Ubuntu-1204) would not print despite having followed documentation, advice given here (upgraded hplip, etc).

I just encountered the same error code and after letting the printer sit a few minutes while off, the screen said there was a paper jam once restarted. Restarting it quickly just gave me the same error code. I cleared the jam and the printer "adjusted itself" for about a minute. Seems to working fine after printing another 30+ duplex prints. -AL

I have figured out how to print on both receipt and slip. You have to send the following ESC/POS commands to the printer. # Select slip y receipt printf "\x1Bc0\X03" > /dev/lp0 # Parallel printing on printf "\x1Bz\X01" > /dev/lp0 In python you would do something like printer = open('/dev/lp0', 'wb', 0) printer.write(bytearray([0x1B, 0x43, 0x00, ...

You can disable avahi with sudo service avahi-daemon stop, but that will stop all zeroconf based setup, not just printers. What are these zeroconf for? What's the best solution to get rid of the auto-install? It's annoying to get the window of the printing "freezing" just to load informations about printers I'll never use. It's also a bit confusing.
