[SOLVED] CUPS and printer busy


Hi to everyone,
I have an Epson EPL-5900L printer and I use Slackware 12.2. I can't print any document.
CUPS detects my printer as EPSON EPL-5900L (EPSON EPL-5900L USB #1). If I try to print a test page, the Printers panel shows this:

EPSON_EPL-5900L_USB_1 "Printer is now on-line."

Description: EPSON EPL-5900L
Location: Local Printer
Printer Driver: Epson EPL-5900L Foomatic/epl5900l (recommended)
Printer State: processing, accepting jobs, published.
Device URI: usb://EPSON/EPL-5900L


If I try to reprint the job, I got this error:

Error:

Job #46 is not complete!


So I cancel the job and I start a new job.
Now the Printers panel shows this:

EPSON_EPL-5900L_USB_1 "Printer busy; will retry in 5 seconds..."

Description: EPSON EPL-5900L
Location: Local Printer
Printer Driver: Epson EPL-5900L Foomatic/epl5900l (recommended)
Printer State: processing, accepting jobs, published.
Device URI: usb://EPSON/EPL-5900L


This is the error log since when I have tried to start a new job with the printer busy:

I cut last 11 lines of the log, because my post was too large.

Now If I run this command (ijs_server_epsonepl EPL-5900L /dev/usb/lp0), I get this output:

Confirmed EPL-5900L
Using kernel usb device
Can't open device EPL-5900L, aborting!
Kernel device: Device or resource busy


This happens also if I restart CUPS. Until I don't turn off and turn on again the printer, ijs_server_epsonpel shows that the printer is busy. After that, the output I get is this:

Confirmed EPL-5900L
Using kernel usb device
Found 5800L/5900L/6100L/6200L

Printer says:
free memory = 0x001fef80
status(0x07) = 0x00:
status(0x09) = 0x00:

0x11 extension:

printed pages = 3840
toner supply = 1%
imaging supply = 80%
paper supply = 100%
low toner behav. = 0 (go on)
updating free_mem from 0x00200000 to 0x001fef80
updating total_mem from 0x00000000 to 0x001fef80


Any idea to solve the problem?

Thanks,

hi

3 suggestions.

1) toner supply 1% not good...consider replacing toner?
2) low toner behav. = 0 (go on) I am not sure if that means it will go on or remain off which is the meaning I normally associate with 0
3) your log suggests it was asking for root at some stage....I think slack still uses KDE so go into kde control center (kcontrol) and see if all users are allowed pls

I know, this happens because I don't have the Epson original toner, but a compatible one, almost full.

I don't think so. I use this printer in a virtual machine with Windows XP, and it works properly.

Yes, I use KDE. I went into KDE Control Center-->Peripherals-->Printers-->Properties-->Users. It shows "All users allowed".

I used this printer until Slackware 11.0. Since Slackware 12.0 it has never worked.

If I try to print a test page with KDE Control Center, in the last line of "Job IPP Report", there is this:

job-printer-state-reasons: connecting-to-device

Maybe is it a connectivity problem? With "lsusb" I can see my printer: Bus 002 Device 005: ID 04b8:0005 Seiko Epson Corp. Stylus D88+, and with Windows XP it works. I don't know what to do.

ok time to sound more vague

Printer and operating systems may have the following main issues:

1) broken hardware...check if printer works in other system ....done ...eliminated
2) wrong permissions...in linux...assume ok based on last report
3) cups not running.....check with some commands or restart cups
4) network not allowing crosstalk....I do not have a network for my printer...so can you explain if you mean ssh into box...samba...or lan or what please?

eg if you ssh in...you may need to restart cups?
Code:
su
/etc/init.d/cups restart
are you able to do other things when in the other box?

are you able to access other files/executables in shared mode? etc

5) CUPS installed but driver is wrong?

since you mention D88...maybe we need to change driver?

EDIT
(6) looks like you need to edit your cups conf file as per second link in next post

looking at epson 5900l you may have some issues that I infer may be driver is the culprit

http://www.openprinting.org/show_dri...=Epson-L-5900L

The next link has important info on networking ...hint hint
http://www.openprinting.org/show_pri...pson-EPL-5900L

and if you choose their driver
http://sourceforge.net/projects/epsonepl/

IT WORKS!!!!

Thank you very much.

I alrealy installed epsonepl driver from http://sourceforge.net/projects/epsonepl, but I used "Find New Printers" and CUPS give me a wrong URI (usb://EPSON/EPL-5900L), like explained in this site: http://www.openprinting.org/show_pri...pson-EPL-5900L.

Thanks again.
