Cups prints randomly

Postby jibe on Tue Sep 03, 2013 3:11 am

Hi,

Printing on network printers works randomly with Maya 32 bits (mate version).

Here is a part of the log :
Code: Select all
 # tail /var/log/cups/error_log

Curiously, these printers sometimes work well, sometimes don't when printing from this computer. All works well when printing from other computers in the network !

On the web, I found some advices saying that a reinstall of cups could solve the problem. So, yesterday, I removed totally cups, and reintalled it forcing the reinstallation of most of related packages. Then, I reinstalled the printers.

The 3 printers (NRG-MP-C2551, NRG-SP-4100NL and RICOH-Aficio-SP-4310N) were detected, and the drivers found. I connected them through IPP, tested and all was working well. But some time later, once again it was impossible to print...

Symptoms :
- Seems that when one is not working, the 2 others don't work (not very sure)
- Reboot the computer makes all printers work well again... for some time.
- When the problem occurs, the printer seems to start to print, and then does nothing. The printer continues to work well with others computers. It is the same symptom on the 3 printers.

What can I do to solve this problem ?

Thanks in advance !
