"No print Service" error in Java applications

I see this problem described in many places, but very few solutions!

I'm using moneydance which is a Java application. When I try to print I get the message "No print service found"

Does anyone know how to get over this?

Debian testing, CUPS Java 1.5, moneydance (latest build)

Sorry if you already saw my similar post in the moneydance forums, but my Moneydance 2006 print problems were solved after I removed the parentheses from my printer name.

Hi chatan

Yes I remember that post. I don't have parentheses in my printer name :-(

Thanks for the suggestion

I fixed it but don't know how!

I tried a combination of things. It may have been one or more of the following:

1. Some broken symlinks /usr/bin/lp*
2. Right combinations of Java and "Java Printing Method."
3. I did an upgrade of my system today.. perhaps some missing/broken/ library got replaced

We recently encountered this problem and solved it by installing printer drivers locally.

1. Bring up the Printer configuration window ("System" > "Administration" > "Printing")
2. Select a printer.
3. Find the spot where it says "Make and Model" about the middle of the settings tab. (Odds are it says "Remote Printer")
4. Click the "Change" button and install the drivers for your printer.

Or, I just copied the ppd files from the /etc/cups/ppd/ on our print server to the local machines and reloaded cups using the "/etc/init.d/cups reload" command, and that worked too.
