Printing Issues

Postby docbrown25 » Mon Feb 04, 2013 2:46 pm

Hi All,
I'm having some prining issues and I'm hoping someone will be able to help me out. Running Mint 14 w/ Cinnamon on a dell lattitude laptop.

I'm trying to print to a sharp MX-C311 network printer and not having any luck. I can add the printer fine, but when I rtry to print nothing prints.

I've tried adding the printer though both the regualr Printers section and through Cups directly and both are successfull at adding the printer.
Also, I have installed the print dirvers from Sharp's website.

When I click print a test page, I can hear the printer waking up and act like its going to print, but then nothing comes out. No errors, and I'm receiving a print successful message/notifcation on my desktop and also in the cups logs:
localhost - - [04/Feb/2013:12:15:07 -0500] "POST /printers/MX-C311PCL_PS HTTP/1.1" 200 415 Print-Job successful-ok

Been racking my brain trying to figure this out.
Any help or suggestions would be greatyl appreciated. Thanks!

It's an upstream issue with Ubuntu, run this

sudo system-config-printer
