CUPS - job completed, but no print out on the printer?


Hi, I have a problem with my printer Brother HL-2035. When I try to print something there is only some led blinks on printer and nothing is print. I am using drivers from brother(cupswrapper). I am using CUPS 1.3.11. I didn't have any problems on my previous installation of slackware(but I don't know which driver I've used). I read about that problem on some pages but nothing helped me.

You need to install two packages: cupswrapper and the hl-2030 driver package. Go back to the Brother website to get the 2030 driver package.

I have seen similar things happen on my Brother HL-2040, cups is 1.4.1 on my system. However, I have only see it fail when trying to print all or part of a .pdf file from Okular. Test page works, and I have not seen problems when printing from other applications. The work around was to install Acroread. Then the same file will print as expected.

I downloaded and installed both cupswrapper and drivers to HL-2030. I can't print test page from cups. I don't know why but cups 1.4.3 doesn't recognize my printer so I'm using 1.3.11.

Can you 'see' the printer with the following command?

'/usr/sbin/lsusb' ? ( Run the command without the quotes. )


On my system...

What do you see if you check to see if the drivers are installed?

This is the command from the install instructions.

Quote:
4-5. Check if the LPR driver and cupswrapper driver are installed

Command (for dpkg) : dpkg -l | grep Brother
Command (for rpm) : rpm -qa | grep -e (lpr-drivername) -e (cupswrapper-drivername)
Is this Slackware? Since the packages seem to be for deb and rpm based systems.

I converted rpm package into tgz and then installed it. And this is replacement of your command:
Code:
pielas@slackware:~$ ls /var/log/packages/|grep cupswrapper
cupswrapperHL2030-2.0.1-1.i386
pielas@slackware:~$ ls /var/log/packages/|grep lpr
brhl2030lpr-2.0.1-1.i386

Is this a 32 bit system or 64 bit? I see there are some extra things you need to do for 64 bit.

See this link in case it's 64 bit.

Well, I'm running out of ideas. The only thing I can think of, is the device URI. What have you got set for the device URI?

There are some samples on the Brother help pages. I had some problems with my old Lexmark printer getting the device URI correct.

Device URI: usb://Brother/HL-2030%20series. It looks correct. When I find some free time I will try to install any disto on my old computer and look if the printer would works.


//edit:
I don't know why but after I removed completely cups(including /etc/cups, /usr/share/cups/, /usr/lib/cups) and installed it everything works perfectly.
