If you need a new driver (unsure what version you are currently using now), you can download v4.00 from Canon here (be sure to select the printer driver for Debian, which I see is listed as #5). You can also download scanner drivers from there if you want. Good luck getting this thing to work for you. I had a cheap Canon printer back when I was using Ubuntu ...

Ironically a friend of more than 20 years emailed me today with the same question about a similar model of Brother Printer, and I can vouch that he is using version 12.04LTS, because I'm the one who installed it for him. I was able to save considerable typing by merely editing my reply to suit your model of Brother printer: Driver installation tutorial for ...

You may want to find out how the printer is accessed first - lpstatwill give you that information. If you compare its output across both systems, you can probably tell whether the printer in question has been configured on both of them. lpstat -p -d lists all printers with their status and tells which one has been set as default printer. You can simply pipe ...

The link by Orestis is really great one. In short the reason of your problems can be 64-bit. Xerox drivers for Phaser 3100MFP are 32-bit and that's why you'll have to install some 32-bit libraries. First of all, download the driver from Xerox official site. It will have a setup file for installing driver in Ubuntu's database. Unpack and install it. It may ...

I followed Masroor/bain instructions; after installing EVERY SINGLE (hidden) DEPENDENCY, I was able to get it to work, but ran into the "kill ccpd once every boot" issue. If you go here and look at the very end of the page, they say: Only one ccpd process running after system startup For normal operation two ccpd processes should be running in a system. ...

There's a way to print duplex manually using gnome-manual-duplex. It's in the standard repositories and works well out of the bo with certain printers. It may need manual configuration for other printers.

Found a better (native, not Google) solution - eventually. This is a pain, but perhaps it will help some poor soul in the future. Unfortunately I can't easily go back and do it again on a virgin system to verify it, so there could be mistakes below - sorry. Better than nothing, though, I hope. Start at ...

I've found a solution - not a great one, but it works: Get the printer set up with Google Cloud Print. Install CUPS Cloud Print http://www.niftiestsoftware.com/cups-cloud-print/ Now I can print from Ubuntu -> GCP -> printer. It's a clumsy solution, a bit slow to respond (maybe 20 seconds), the print quality isn't quite as good as printing directly (some ...

I believe that, if you want footers, you have to write a custom hdr file and then select it with the --fancy-header option. I have written one (below) that may work for you. There is a nine-year-old bug report on this problem. The approach in that bug report attempts a more comprehensive solution and requires re-compiling enscript. My approach is not as ...

I'm using the system-config-printer utility in Linux Mint 17. Click the "+ Add" button. Next, choose "Network Printer". It should display your Canon printer twice, once by cnijet format (e.g. cnijnet:/88-87-17-89-c1-62), and once as "LPD network printer via DNS-SD". Choosing the LPD daemon cleared up this error for me.

I have a HL-2240 and had a similar problem. Brother has an Install Tool here, you might have better luck selecting HL2170W instead of HL2140 though. The install directions pop up after you accept the EULA to download.

List the iptable configuration with the command sudo iptables -L Then use the following script to open CUPS connection on the port 631 ## open cups (printing service) udp/tcp port 631 for LAN users ## iptables -A INPUT -s 192.168.1.0/24 -p udp -m udp --dport 631 -j ACCEPT iptables -A INPUT -s 192.168.1.0/24 -p tcp -m tcp --dport 631 -j ACCEPT Allow ...

While you upgrade your machine from 14.04 to 14.10 packages which was referring the wireless printer would get differed and this is reason it was not showing your wireless printer. Reinstall your printer which may fix this issue. Also, Please check whether the new printer connection is trusted connection in your new firewall settings. Hope this helps!

Ok, here was what happened. The new firewall setting hadn't set the wireless connection to the printer as trusted. Once it was set to trusted, the printer showed up and set up. Thanks for the help.
