After running the "sh" file that you download from the xerox website, it looks like nothing has happened, but a new ppd file will be in etc/cups/ppd folder. Choose that ppd file when installing the printer.

As the normal hplip installation procedure includes downloading and then installing the required plugin, you'll need to perform a more complicated manual installation. Detailed information for such a manual installation can be found here: http://hplipopensource.com/node/309 And here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2178303 The list of plugins ...

The easiest way is to use menu in the printer itself. The printer should have a display. There must be an option to test/clean nozzles. Stylus Workforce 320 has this functionality. You can look at the printer's manual to do it. Press menu button, then go to 'Maintenance' -> 'Head cleaning'. If the printer has no features to do it there, then you could ...

Try setting the "Share This Printer" option within the CUPS settings of the printer. This made my printers available after upgrading to 15.04. I hope this solves the problem for you.

Posting for posterity's sake. I was able to print to my Dell 1660w (which is networked) by installing the following package: sudo apt-get install libcupsimage2:i386 Downloaded the DEB driver for the Xerox Phaser 6000B: http://www.support.xerox.com/support/phaser-6000/downloads/engb.html?operatingSystem=linux Installed the Dell 1660W using the above driver ...

After another couple of weeks fiddling with things I never did manage to get past the "Login Error" problem. I've given up and simply disabled user authentication on our printer... we're a small organization so it makes little difference anyways.

You need to go to Epson printer drivers site, search for your printer and download ONE deb file: epson-inkjet-printer-201214w_1.0.0-1lsb3.2_i386.deb if your system is 32-bit, or epson-inkjet-printer-201214w_1.0.0-1lsb3.2_amd64.deb if your system is 64-bit.

Just something you need to mention for the LBP6000 with radu script: If you install the printer x86 with radu script, everything will be ok. But you cannot print (the printing job will be held for a while then, nothing happens). To fix this problem (it took me several days for figure out what happened), you please install the driver from the Canon side ...

The download of CUPS was the result of some less well considered advice at another help site. Don't think I will go there again. The instrux above worked as far as it went. That printer is apparently not easy to set up.

Simply install the official driver from Canon, and add printer using system-config-printer or cups web interface (http://localhost:631) http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/consumer/products/printers_multifunction/black_white_laser_multifunction/imageclass_mf4770n#DriversAndSoftware

The other answers are possibly right, but I've discovered it might be an issue with what you're printing in combination with the settings that you're using. For example, I tried to print this simple PDF, which is just a black and white checkerboard, on my Deskjet 932C. I selected "photo paper" in my print options (because I was using photo paper) and not ...

Nice guys. At least partially answer the guy's question. PCL is the printing command "language" this printer driver uses. It talks to printers that speak "PCL 6" in this case. Just like other printers print PS (postscript) or PDF. Older PCL printers may only support up to v5 for 5C (color). All newer though should support either "PCL 6" or PCL 6XL (for ...

Try reinstalling the printer from the System Settings > Printers menu. Check the driver you are using on it, and send a test page to print. Also, try to print something from the Document Viewer and not from the Google Chrome, sometimes the problem is with the browser printing.

You can install it by typing: sudo apt-get install printer-driver-c2050 # sudo apt-get install ...

I don't have the same exact model as you, but I do have an HP printer which works just fine without the HPLIP. I can print and scan everything just fine. The only thing I cannot do is check my ink levels and do other HP specific stuff, but for other everyday stuff I have zero problems.

Summary: you're probably seeing the options for the last instance in ~/.cups/lpoptions. There are both system-wide defaults and per-user defaults.

These are stored in /etc/cups/printers.conf and /etc/cups/ppd/NAME.ppd where NAME is the name of the printer. In ...

It seems to me that Ubuntu favours the ethernet connection when resolving the address. This means that when you try to reach 10.23.161.x, you get the 'outside' connection; your traffic is blocked by 10.23.161.x's router firewall. If you can use the printer's internal (private) address through the wireless network, you could try the solution from ...

I tried printing from Qpdfview for the first time instead of Evince and was able to adjust the top and other margins in the Properties. The other printing options are similar to evince. As the person who asked the question, I too print a great number of tax forms and for the first time it printed it as it should be. Another advantage is to be able to shrink ...
