Cannot print in KDE in Wireless

Postby Zurd » Tue Mar 12, 2013 12:16 am

Should be straightforward, in KDE, I go into System Settings / Printers, then I add a new printer and it add my printer in 'Discovered Network Printers', that is nice. I choose it, use the right driver, click Finish and there it is. All configured and ready to use, however I cannot print with it, it just doesn't do anything, nothing appears in the print queue.

Name and description : Samsung_SCX-3400_Series_(SEC001599B71913)
Connection : dnssd://Samsung%20SCX-3400%20Series%20(SEC001599B71913)._printer._tcp.local/
Driver : Current - Samsung SCX-3400 Series

Works flawlessly in Windows. It's also saying in the print queue 'Printer paused' but even if I click Resume Printer, it still doesn't do anything. I don't know where to look for more information.

Just fixed it. I downloaded the driver from Samsung website, a big zip file. Extracted it and run sudo ./autorun

It created a printer in KDE but using the wrong driver and the wrong connection. So I modified both and it's now working... weird...
