I tried adding my Canon printer via wireless connenction to my laptop. I used this driver provided by canon: https://www.canon-europe.com/support/consumer_products/products/printers/laser/i-sensys_lbp6230dw.aspx?type=drivers&language=EN&os=Linux%20(64-bit) If I install any newer version (I found v 3.40 instead of 1.40) it won't even recognize the printer, stating it's generic tex-only printer, and even worse, in this case the printing job immediately gets cancelled in the minute I press the print button.
Using the 1.40 driver, the printer has been added, and even softwares (LibreOffice, even emulated MS Office) see the the printer, but it's stuck at "processing" for some reason I don't quite understand. If I have look at the error message it shows: " - src = bidiCommon.c, line = 349, err = 0¥nDEBUG2: prtMarkerSuppliesLevel.1.1 = 100" More to that, I know that the ink level is not full (if the value indicates that), because it can't even print the user data page properly.
The system sees the printer, when I run lpinfo -v, I get these results:
- file cups-brf:/
- network lpd
- network http
- network beh
- network socket
- network ipps
- network ipp
- direct hp
- network https
- direct hpfax
- network bjnp
- List item
- network socket://192.168.0.94
I suspected something must be with the wireless connection, so I pinged the IP adress, the result I think shows, that something else is the problem, the result:
- PING 192.168.0.94 (192.168.0.94) 56(84) bytes of data.
- 7 packets transmitted, 7 received, 0% packet loss, time 6006ms rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 11.032/38.847/74.303/25.210 ms
In theory the port are open, because nmap gets this result:
Starting Nmap 7.60 ( https://nmap.org ) at 2018-02-09 11:42 CET Nmap scan report for 192.168.0.94 Host is up (0.041s latency). Not shown: 997 closed ports PORT STATE SERVICE 80/tcp open http 515/tcp open printer 9100/tcp open jetdirect Nmap done: 1 IP address (1 host up) scanned in 17.60 seconds
I'm sorry for the formatting,it's my first post here, so I didn't quite figure out when causes Enter a new paragraph. I highlighted wit bold font the text, which I think might be the most relevant.
I appreciate any help coming. Thank you in advance: David
