It's a network-connected all-in-one, with 2-sided printing and scanning, that I need to use to its fullest potential. What do I need to do to get this thing installed pls? There ...

Re: Printer/scanner problem

I am sure that is how things work, but how can I run Simple Scan and get it to find my scanner without opening terminal each time?
I am not familiar with the technique, but I think you can use a desktop shortcut. The Mint forums probably have quite a bit on this.

Re: CUPS service not starting and not accessible after printer/scanner install LM19.3XFCE

I had this same problem with one exception. When I used " mv /etc/cups/cupsd.conf /etc/cups/cupsd.conf-orig" I got the message that I didn't have permission to do this. I ended up copying the file to the new name and deleting the original file before continuing on. This worked for me but without th...

Re: Printer/scanner problem

Brilliant! The simple-scan worked - I had to install simple-scan first the run the command and I now have a little graphic app. that does the job. Very nice. You need not bother with changing your printing setup now. I am tempted to try your second suggestion also. I can always remove one of them i...

Re: Printer/scanner problem

Hi. Just tried that one. The scanner did it's thing and scanned but I can't find a trace of the scanned document. It should be in the directory that scanimage ran in. Try ls -l image.pnm OTOH, seeing that we now know how to scan, you may be more comfortable with simple-scan hpaio:/net/deskjet_3630_...

Re: CUPS service not starting and not accessible after printer/scanner install LM19.3XFCE

Can anyone help to decipher what may be going on here, and how I can get back control over my printer/scanner? Backup /etc/cups/cupsd.conf : mv /etc/cups/cupsd.conf /etc/cups/cupsd.conf-orig and do cp /usr/share/cups/cupsd.conf.default /etc/cups/cupsd.conf followed by systemctl start cups

It is a possibility that you should be able to scan with

Code: Select all

scanimage -d hpaio:/net/deskjet_3630_series?zc=HP3C5282FC0DAC  > image.pnm
Did this work?

You did not provide a log file in the form I wanted. Someone else can guess at the significance of what you have provided. I do not guess.

Re: HP DJ2630 installation help wanted. LM18.3

I assume that the ppd file that is generated by lpadmin -m is nothing like the ppd that HPLIP requires? You removed Mint's HPLIP and installed HPLIP 3.19.12. The PPD comes from 3.19.12 and is what the Mint version would have supplied. In other words, the PPD was already on your system and was not g...

Every package appear to now be installed. As 'cups-filters' is now preceded by ii I have not run 'apt install cups-filters'. I trust that is correct. That is correct. cups-filters is a dependency of cups so gets pulled in when cups is installed. (I gave it in an apt command as a belt 'n braces appr...
