Go to the manufacturer site and download driver for Linux from there: http://download.ebz.epson.net/dsc/search/01/search/searchModule There is a manual how to install them: http://download.ebz.epson.net/man/linux/ If it worked on Galaxy, I believe that most probably it will work on Ubuntu, as well. Because Galaxy uses Android system which is based on ...

I was able to get the brother HL-3170CDW to print wirelessly in Ubuntu. I first configure the printer to print wirelessly and tested with Windows 7 and iOS. Through the printer menu I printed the configuration settings to get the IP address of the printer. I followed the Add Printer wizzard and expanded network Printer. It auto-detected the Brother printer ...

Under newer Ubuntu versions (checked with 13.10 and later), just install the cups-backend-bjnp package to use your Canon Pixma MG520 via network. The Printer settings dialog will then find it when you tell it to add a new printer, and offer a Gutenprint driver to set it up.

You can refer to my tutorial here in case you want to install the printer and scanner on Ubuntu and any other Linux distro. To enable the Grayscale printing just follow the following steps.

Linux has no drivers. Something is built into the kernel or it's not. That being said, there is something called a module and that module can be loaded or not loaded, so when you install new hardware, just use the built-in modules of the kernel you're currently running. In this case: Go to the dash (the "start" button in the opper left corner if using ...

If the same PDF on the same server on another Windows laptop works, you've got a Windows issue on the first laptop... Where in Windows is another question altogether. I would try Foxit instead of Adobe first, but it's my humble opinion you should ask this question on http://SuperUser.com (a sister site of AskUbuntu) as they have better Windows experts ...

Wow! Trip down to memory lane... This is a typical PC-DOS problem that was never decently solved on DOS either. This depended (and apparently still depends) entirely on your printer supporting cp437... The only way I ever solved this problem 25 years ago was to use the IBM ProPrinter or the Tandy DMP-80 as those were one of the few printers that ...

First, lets get to know what your printer will do: $lpoptions -d <printer-name> then assuming your printer can handle your desired resolution etc... we can try to print. --What if is says it can only do 300DPI but you KNOW the printer can do more? well, maybe try reinstalling the printer with a better, more updated, non-generic driver. Then ...

Thanks for that. Those drivers load up this time, with no error messages, in the order that you gave. But unfortunately The v200 scanner still does not work. I am at a loss, loads of people seem to have the same problem, but as yet no positive answers to the problem. This scanner works fine in windows XP. But i do want to go fully Linux Ubuntu. and dump ...

I believe you have to install 3 separate drivers in a particular order. Here is an example for 32 bit machine: 1. iscan-data_1.34.0-1_all.deb` 2.iscan_2.30.1-1~usb0.1.ltdl7_i386.deb 3.iscan-plugin-gt-f670_2.1.2-1_i386.deb In short, 1st is "data", 2nd is "ltdl7" and 3rd is plug in. Make sure you download deb files (not the md5 or others)

After a bit of searching and playing around, thanks to @Benjamin's comment above, I finally found that there is a default configuration file which should be installed in /usr/share/cups/cupsd.conf.default.

The article says 192.168.1.10, and you have 192.168.1.1. Maybe that's the problem?

I found a solution: I found a virgin content of cupsd.conf on a forum. So I created a new cupsd.conf file by doing: gksudo gedit /etc/cups/cupsd.conf and copied the following cupsd.conf virgin content below # # # Sample configuration file for the CUPS scheduler. See "man cupsd.conf" for a # complete description of this file. # # Log general ...

PDF has a defined media size, so you're going to have to do some workarounds: Set up a custom page size in your printer. I have one, TenLetter, which is 215.9 × 2794 mm, or a sheet the length of 10 US letter pages end to end. It doesn't split unless the whole content is longer than ten pages. It's a pain to view (zoom is your friend) or to print, but it ...

You can use the lp command. To print the output of a command to the default printer (use lpstat -d to see what the default printer is): echo "test" | lp To print to a specific printer (use lpstat -p | awk '{print $2}' to list available printer names): echo "test" | lp -d printername To print a file, rather than a command output: lp /path/to/file

Just had the same issue with an Epson printer. Have a scanner plugged in by usb which triggered the network printer to not print.

Why does the synaptic package manager shows that the latest version is 3.12 ? Because for 12.04 3.12.2-1ubuntu3.4 is the latest stable version on release. And nobody backported the package (there is no need for it due to the reason below). How can I update that hplip version from 3.12 to 3.13.8 ? You can do it yourself. HP has an excellent ...

First of all, when you're new to Ubuntu there are a few golden rules you have to use the first year you use Ubuntu: Only install applications from the software center (This is the answer to your question: take the same series Brother 7800 series or 7000 series) Before you buy anything, look for a Linux-Compatible logo. If you cannot see a Linux Logo, look ...

I experienced similar problems, as cited in this forum, trying to configure the HP Laserjet 1018 printer with ubuntu desktop 14.04 and 14.10. At the begining I used HPLIP installed manually, and the printer worked fine for a while, I was able to print 3 or 4 documents, but then the printer started to fail with "communication error". After some combinations ...

I suspect the fault you are experiencing is not solvable via Ubuntu tweaks but the fault of the Brother Driver programmers themselves. I'm still new to this site, and I understand this site offers the ability to post personal views and advice. Someday I hope to take advantage of these features to help new users to avoid these issues such as those you are ...

We had the same issue after updating from 12.04 to 14.04, same error dialog box but still able to see the printers via a browser, and a similar error message from system-config-printer --debug .

If you're on Ubuntu you, just use the command "sudo hp-setup" in the Terminal. But if you're using something like Xubuntu you have to install Hplip from the Software Manager first.

Out of curiosity, I Googled that just to see if there was anything peculiar about your printer that would make finding it within the built-in printer utility difficult. I honestly cannot tell, but the number of advisories online suggests there may be something tricky. I don't have your printer handy to test this with but of the various tutorials I found ...

Remove libsane-hpaio. This package grabs and holds the parallel port. The package is for HP scanners connected to LPT1. What a headache!! I can't believe this goes on for so long.

First install the Standard Ubuntu drivers for your Canon printer from the repository before installing the proprietary Canon drivers from their web site. The Canon drivers update the existing generic ones; the proprietary ones don't work well if they're the first ones installed!

If you are using linux right now, and open this link, you will find yourself at a canon page where your OS is detected and it will provide drivers for your printer.

Just to complete the other answers: in case your PC is unable to connect to your device, you can “force” the network device to use for a particular address and/or subnet by adding a route, without messing with default routes.
