Upgraded to 18.04 from 16.04. I have a workplace printer connected through appsocket which stopped working.
printer status is Idle-Filter failed
printing que instantly goes to "stopped"
right click on the printer shows "option finishings has value 3 and cannot be changed". I cant find any info on this error except one pdf to ignore the error.
The printer model ricoh mp2555 worked previously with ricoh mp c2800 driver. now works with neither 2800 or 2555.
the ip address of the printer pings fine. when I try and detect the printer on network using ipaddress and I ask it use to ricoh mp2555 driver it aks for an additional driver which opens Ubuntu software (which never helps) and fails.
I tried changing drivers from "https://www.openprinting.org/printer/Ricoh/Ricoh-MP_2555" by providing the ppd file. still not help. var/log/cups/error.log dosnt tell much. or i dont get it.
Hope someone knows about this error or some kind of a generic solution. thanks in advance
