Look at the arp-scan command - you will probably have to install it: sudo apt-get install arp-scan http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/hardy/man1/arp-scan.1.html And to give further detail: sudo arp-scan --interface=eth0 --localnet Where eth0 is your device (or wlan0). You can find your device with: ifconfig Or try installing nmap (sudo apt-get ...

According to the HP Laserjet 2400-series User Guide, the IP address is available on the control panel of the printer itself.

Welcome to the wonderful world of Ubuntu, where there are no drivers. There is something called "modules" and these serve the same purpose though. So head to the icon in the upper left corner (the dash), type "printers", double-click the icon, add a printer, choose "Epson" and take the name of the printer that most closely resembles yours and in 99% of the ...

I was not able to add a comment, but I wanted to confirm that @AntonChanning's solution worked for the MFC-J870DW also.

You could download the drivers for the MFC 240 C from the brothers website but if you're looking for the PaperPort 12 software that came with the original disk they now want to charge you for it. It seems like you cannot scan a document and open it with word without it. You need them to make the OCR work which will do that for you. I could not find ...

Yes they do exist, I have been using my MFC6490CW with Ubuntu since 2009, both for printing and scanning. You can download the driver e.g. from the US support site. Select the deb versions. I have used the individual drivers, but you might want to try the Driver Install Tool (listed at the top here) download it and follow its installation instructions: ...

You should be able to use Find Network Printer and use the printer ip address in order to identify the proper printer. I have the same printer that method worked for me.

I just re-installed my Brother HL-3075CW drivers after getting a replacement computer. I'd forgotten how I got it working in the first place. However, what finally worked was when I selected number 11, which for me was: 11: lpd://BRW61D81946A4AB/BINARY_P1 (I noticed that the order of the options changes every time I installed the driver.) The long string of ...

Your installation is stuck on replacing missing parts of cups. To get it unstuck, first force it to remove the old cups: sudo apt-get purge -f cups then reinstall it with sudo apt-get install cups

First you should note Ubuntu 12.10 is outdated and no longer supported by Ubuntu, so you should upgrade to some supported Versions such as 12.04LTS or 14.04LTS or non LTS such as 14.10 and 15.04 Now I'm answering since this would be applicable for all Ubuntu versions. And this since your domain only contains Ubuntu, if some Windows you need samba. The ...

Congratulation! Some kind people create for us driver for sp 100 series and 200 series. At least my Ricoh sp111 working. links for you: https://github.com/madlynx/ricoh-sp100 .

Sounds like you've got the device configured in Serial Emulation Mode but you want it in Keyboard Emulation Mode. The manual says you need to refer to the USB section of the MetroSelect Single-Line Configuration Guide. Just to clarify, I believe this is a device configuration issue not a Ubuntu issue.

I googled "Brother QL-500 linux" found this: http://support.brother.com/g/b/oslist.aspx?c=us&lang=en&prod=lpql500eus just click "linux information" it looks well documented

It's obvious you need to install the gutenprint driver. even though you can see the printer but still you need to install this driver since you stuck on the dialogue showing that. Search and download your printer driver from here, then I think you can use it normally.

This is not a printer, but scanner. For scanner driver go to Epson drivers site Search for your model, and download drivers. You will need esci-interpreter-gt-s80_0.2.1-1_amd64.deb iscan-plugin-esdip_1.0.0-5_amd64.deb iscan_2.30.1-1~usb0.1.ltdl7_amd64.deb iscan-data_1.36.0-1_all.deb if your system is 64-bit.

For presently supported devices Brother provide an install script that both, downloads and installs all drivers needed to set up a network printer very quickly.

Downloading and installing driver software for this printer from the Canon site resulted in an unmet dependency on libtiff4 during the install. I found the key to get the MG5460 working wirelessly on 14.04 under Dependency is not satisfiable: libtiff4 when trying to install Lightworks on Ubuntu 14.04. So… Manually install libtiff4 for 14.04 as prescribed ...

Thank you for your proposed solution. Your suggestion got me thinking and it turns out that the HP-Envy-4500 E All-in-one printer MUST be configured using a USB connection to the printer. After connecting with the USB cable, using HPLIP I was able to enter the wireless printer setup utility. Even though I had successfully connected to our home router, it ...

I suggest that, rather than having the System Settings > Printers tool attempt to automatically find the wireless printer, you specify the Device URI. I have an HP printer and, although it attaches to my router with ethernet, I think the process is the same. I assume the 'Wireless Network Test Results' shows the printer's IP address. I suggest you use this ...

I had the same problem with my Epson WF-3520 and the driver from the Epson-Website.

I see a fellow *nix user with a similar issue, although mine is blank pages and pages with images only... I have been advised that Epson do have Linux drivers, I have a cheap n cheerful D92. Maybe a walk over to Epson might be in order.

the Toshiba site seams to indicate that drivers are interchangeable http://www.estudio.com.sg/download_2330c2820c3520c4520c.aspx

Maybe you need to install the driver of the printer. To do that, you have to go to Printers -> Add new printer and follow the instructions. You should look for the model of you printer. If it does not work you can also specify an external source for the driver and at that point you can use your CD.

I support runeks' answer. However, I kept having problems installing the SaveAsPDF.exe extension - it never showed up as being installed. I finally realized that I had used PlayOnLinux to install Office rather than pure Wine, and this meant using the PoL Wine prefix. This thread (in Italian!) helped me solve it: ...

TL;DR Use your default printer with: lp filename To specify a default printer or use specific printer, list all printers with lpstat -p -d eg: % lpstat -p -d printer HP-LaserJet-1200 is idle. enabled since Sa 06 Jun 2015 20:26:19 CEST printer HP_Color_LaserJet_CP1514n is idle. enabled since Do 21 Mai 2015 21:02:54 CEST printer HP_LaserJet_1200 is ...

It was much easier than I thought. I just had to search for "Printers" in the Ubuntu dash, clicked "Add", searched for network printers, clicked on mine, and voila. That's pretty much it. Then I just used the following command and everything worked great: lp -d PRINTER_NAME PDF_FILES

This should be fixed by running in terminal sudo apt-get install -f If you installed drivers from Epson site, they require some other packages to be installed too. But the problem is that 13.10 is not supported any more, and you won't get these packages from repository. There is a way to connect "old-releases" repository, but I suggest upgrading the ...

After much investigation, it turned out that both printers I was using were parallel to USB converted. The printers themselves have a USB port each on them but internally, it seems, there was a converter used. To solve this, I bought a different printer model as the second printer.

The first copy of DCP7065DN worked for me. Of course there shouldn't be three choices of the same printer in the first place, and I hope someone fixes that.
