printer issu


hi All

i am trying to install sharp mx-m425N printer on ubuntu 12.04, i downloaded the drivers from sharp website and installed the printer.

after i give the print command the printing job completes there is no queue but the print does not come out.

I checked the printer queue on printer but there is nothing the request does not reach the printer.

how do i resolve this

The LAN cable is fine. the window's users can print using the same network printer.
The only issue lies with linux users

Spell out your words, please; text-speak isn't good for anyone. And the OP posted that the printer is WORKING for Windows users, so that will obviously rule out the cable, address, etc., wouldn't it?

Try opening a web browser on your Ubuntu system, and putting in "http://localhost:631". That will pull up the CUPS administration page. Under the PRINTERS tab at the top, click on the queue name, and make sure the printer is accepting jobs, and if not, enable it.

And we still can't help unless you provide details. Did you try the suggestions above? Check the print queue? CUPS status? Enable the printer? Anything???

Hi

I checked everything

the queue is empty, CUPS status is running.

I also uninstalled the driver and installed the same printer with the generic drivers.
