Print job stops, will not print OS: Fedora 16, Printer Samsung ML-2955ND


Printer is installed, it has printed two test pages. Cannot get it to print anything else. Have restarted cups multiple times and re-booted computer, and unplugged/plugged printer. Any help most greatly appreciated.

first fedora 16 is as you know now past it's end of life

time to think about installing fedora 18

the gui in fedora is ?? well bluntly "bad " ( and smelly )

use the cups web interface
http://localhost:631/

i am betting there are files in the print que that are blocking it

click on the "jobs" tab and kill any that are there

Here is the error message I get from CUPS: "/usr/lib/cups/filter/rastertosamsungspl failed"


I've downloaded 18 and will be installing it soon.

?? you are getting that is Firefox 18 ???? when you go to the "localhost" Web address ??

and NOT getting a 404 error ?

if so then there is something VERY messed up with fedora 16

No, I'm getting that error message in 16. I haven't installed 18 yet. Do you think that installing 18 would fix the problem?

Screenshot of CUPS when tried to print test page

I cancelled all stopped jobs and tried to print test page. Got same results. Checked to see if rastertosamsungspl file was in /usr/lib/cups/filter. It was.

The Samsung documentation warns that their printers are not compatible with SELinux. So, before printing I use the command (as root)
setenforce 0
and afterwards
setenforce 1
and my Samsung works perfectly.

I did try checking and correcting the SEL labeling of all the relevant files, and that got the printer to print a page: size! It really doesn't like SEL.

Great!

It works perfectly after setenforce 0.

Thank you so much!

I think I did the setenforce 0 as root. Didn't work either so I just concluded that Samsung isn't Linux friendly and plugged the printer into my Windows machine and just print from there.
