I don't know if it helps, but I have the same printer with no problem at all. It's connected to a B/G wifi router, using WPA2 encription. The only important thing I had to do is preallocate the IP number of the printer in the router static DHCP configuration, so that it would not change across reconnections. This thing is different from router to router, ...

This printer only supports proprietary DDST (GDI) Ricoh printer language without support for PS or PCL printer language and Ricoh only provides driver for Windows. You could try this reverse engineered https://github.com/madlynx/ricoh-sp100 driver but this "driver" is not in production state.

I had a similar problem with an Epson network printer.

This binary is part of colord, a "system service to manage ...

My package (shameless plug), duplexpr does some of what you want and includes bash functions which may be useful in rolling your own version. (It's coded in bash, so it should be relatively easy to modify and I will help if I can.) It's designed to emulate duplex printing on non-duplex printers and implements its own simple print queue management. It has ...

I am unable to comment, so this is in the form of an answer: sudo chown root:root /usr/lib/cups/notifier/dbus might help, now that you have the permissions right. Who is user 1 on your system?

Once you have the job number(s), from lpq -a e.g: Rank Owner Job File(s) Total Size 1st wilf 59 PRINT.pdf 50547712 bytes You should be able to cancel it with the command cancel - e.g: cancel 59 You may also be the lprm command.

CUPS should be enough on its own (sudo apt install cups) and will be the base requirement of almost any printing system in Ubuntu. CUPS has a web interface that does quite a lot more than the usual graphical frontends can. If you're on the server, just open http://localhost:631/ in a browser. Authentication (for printer administration) is for any user in ...

What I do is the following --- it is not as versatile as you asked, but it works almost ok. You need to have all your printers defined, and then you need these two scripts: stop_printers: #!/bin/bash -f # allp=(`cat /etc/printcap | tr "|" "\t" | cut -f 1 | grep -v "#"`) for i in ${allp[@]}; do echo -n Printer $i: cupsdisable "$i" echo " " ...

For sharing printers best solution, for me, is to user cups. Also you can user cups on mac. For file sharing you can use Samba. You have lot of a resource here, and here, or here Maybe you can use NFS. With nfs your network share will be mount on boot. Example of configuration can find here, and here. Or, for file sharing, you can use this manual.

Welcome to the wonderful world of Ubuntu, where there are no drivers. There is something called "modules" and these serve the same purpose though.
