Comment 22 John Dennis I used the default settings in the PPD, and perhaps that makes a difference. Comment 20 John Dennis Check with iptables –table filter –list grep mdns and look at the avahi-browse -art output.

Comment 29 Michael Eager Did I correctly perform the test you wanted? Login [x] Log in using an account from: Somebody has to contact pdftops folks and convince them to take a patch for an odd off-brand printer. Printing troubleshooter doesn’t have a feature petops get logs from systemd journal yet, so CUPS logs need to be acquired by following steps.

If you are experiencing a problem with printing, please take a look at the common bugs page before filing a bug. Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release’s lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Creating local printer queues takes long time for some printers with larger PPD file, so timeout of http connection will time out and it creates infinite loop of creating local printer queues.

Comment 69 Solomon Peachy It also provides a number of filters which prepare a print job for sending to a printer. Change pop operations to cleartomark In spite of this complexity the debugging methods described later can be very effective if used in a organised way. Comment 11 Tim Waugh For a printer connected to a parallel port: The file type can identified with the file utility and should be capable of being viewed to see what the application has sent.


An open port 80 would indicate an embedded web server, a very useful service for making alterations to the printer’s configuration with a browser. At that time this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora ‘version’ of ’23’. I ask because it seldom hits this problem working on the assumption all images are encoded the same way because many documents with images print fine. Then restart cups-browsed service.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not able to fix it before Fedora 20 is end of life. If you wish for this bug to remain open because you plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the ‘version’ to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 18’s end of life.

The most recent issue was printing a page in Firefox http: Comment 70 John Dennis It’s curious that this does not show up on other postscript printers because I assume the postscript filters are shared with all postscript printers. Running the snmp backend on a client is a quick alternative. I also noticed that when Tim generated his ps file, it worked but it was at level 2.

Where do we go from here? We know now how to work around this bug in end-of-stream handling on this kind of printers. The printer receives jobs in the networkuri from a CUPS server. Inconsistencies such as many dropped packets or high latencey could mean looking at the network setup.

A deficiency in the printer. This is still an issue at least with F Let me know what other information you need. Comment 33 Michael Eager Even if you only have access to the one printer there is often a choice of drivers to use for a given printer model, and trying each one in turn can be useful in narrowing down the problem.

As a result we are closing this bug. Comment 47 John Dennis If the problem you are seeing is not listed there or none of the workarounds seem to help, please consider filing a bug report to help us make Fedora run better on your hardware.

CUPS job file You might find it useful to try another driver to see if that shows the same problem.

Comment 28 Michael Eager I cannot figure out what is wrong here but it does seem to be related to the file type rather than the system not working Comment 64 Fedora Faailed Of Life Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.

See above for how to do that.

That leaves the Duplex setting. Bookmarks Bookmarks Digg del. Apparently lpadmin -x printername will do that. Finding the device-uri will act failde a test of the connection between computer and printer.
