Problem printing to LPD connected printer

[Copy link]

Post time: 2013-2-15 20:27:27 |Show all posts
After adding a printer, connected through a D-Link DP-301U LPD, everything worked fine. After a few days I suddenly couldn't print anymore. Printouts are queued but not printed. Pressing the Test link in the YAST printer configuration page gives the following error: An error occured while communicating with the CUPS server while saving queue y2test. cups(File)DoRequest error: client-error-bad-request The page where you can test communication with the LPD indicates that there is no problem on that level. Since I had no idea what the problem could be I removed the printer and added it again. It worked for a while but now the same problem is back. Can anyone help me? TIA, Gunnar

I've seen a similar problem on my network from time to time. Usually,
all I need to do is open a terminal on the box with the printer and do:
   su
   (enter root password)
   rccups restart
   exit
and the printing resumes. Worth a shot, anyway . . .

Have you tried accessing CUPS via it's web interface? Open a browser
and, in the location bar, enter:
   http://localhost:631/
click on 'Manage Printers' and see if you can restart it there. You can
also setup and modify printers with this interface . . .

Tried that, but when I press "Start Printer" I'm prompted for a user id and
password. I tried with both root and my usual work id but neither was
accepted. Any idea what the uid and pwd might be? Can't remember ever
choosing one.

After some googling I found that the users must be members of the sys group
so I added root to this group and restarted cups. Still, the web
administration won't accept the login.

My fault, I should have told you that you need to open a terminal and
do:
   su
   (enter root password)
   lppasswd
   exit
Remember the password you enter here! :-)

Thanks! Now I can start the printer! Now I only have to figure out why it is
stopped from time to time.

You're welcome -- glad it worked for you! :-)
I've seen that before, as well. It's never risen beyond the 'minor
nuisance' level for me, so I haven't investigated it . . .
