This is so aggravating. I have tried this and a bunch of other sites. Here I sit at 11:10 pm and after 4 hours am no closer to a solution. Ubuntu needs to change how you add a printer.

The answer I believe is in this site: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1726874 basically on the server you will have a directory that you place the PDF files in after they are scanned, and on a regular basis using cron, they will be printed.

Add Ubuntu Trusty repository via system>software update>other software install lsb and then remove the repository. You can install the driver. This is the only way now till a solution is brought up by Canonical. The lsb files work in Xenial and even if one does an update from Trusty to Xenial with lsb installed, they are left behind and fully functional.

My Brother HL2280DW is pinned on the network. My new new 16.04 Ubuntu instance was configured by: Start Gear (upper right corner) => System settings => Printer => Add button The 2280 was not an option, but it seemed to indicate that the 2250DN with CUPS+Gutenprint would work: I selected this option and was able to print the test page and an Amazon.com ...

Which version of Ubuntu are you using exactly? lsb_release -a and uname -a. It sounds like your cups is working fine, but is something that is connecting you applications to CUPS. I never-the-less would try removing/deleting your printer, rebooting your computer, and reinstalling it. Then try uninstalling cups, rebooting, reinstalling. Does your ...

This manual worked for me: Manual . Read Ubuntu print server section. The option to enable is called - "Publish shared printers connected to this server".

I have a C610 OKI which is a great printer. OKI told me that they have no drivers for Ubuntu. (I told them to tell their IT people to get on it!) Added the printer from the dash, and first loaded the best-fit OKI driver from the list. Not so good. Deleted the printer and started over using the generic recommended driver. Works much better. Only problem is ...

If you did not understand a word of that, don't worry. I did not either. Here is an alternative, but you may have to use a Windows computer to update the firmware on your Samsung M2070 FW printer. Once that is done, connect it to your router using WPS, or your preferred method. Once the printer is connected to the wireless network, your Ubuntu based ...

I can't explain why, but ...

Problem solved by connecting the Samsung Xpress C460w by wire to the router then accessing printer's control panel and connecting its wireless to my network, after that, disconnecting the wire from the router. That is it :). To be able to print, Linux drivers package have to be installed on the computer.
