It seems LM 16 64 Bit has problems printing due to permission problems. I'm able to print on LM 14 64 Bit fine. Now Cups displays an "Filter failed" error when I try to print with HP DeskJet 845c.
There are tons of different suggestions to solve "Filter Failed" errors. These attempts doesn't help:
- removing and reinstalling the printer
- adding my user to the groups lp and lpadmin
- removing the hplip package and install the package from hplipopensource (according to: http://hplipopensource.com/hplip-web/install/install/index.html)
- fixing permissions to the printer usb ports (according to: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/CUPS#Printer_doesn.27t_print_with_an_.22Filter_failed.22_message_on_CUPS_web_interface_.28HP_printer.29)
The only way I was able to print at least a test page was to install the printer using
- Code: Select all
I would be glad for any help/ideas. I'm very frustrated, because I choose mint because its always seemed to me very convenient. But this problem reminds me to my first very hard time with Linux more then eight years ago.
P.S. I will post this parallel on Ubuntu forums and I will post helpfull recommendations here too.
