Duplex not working on Samsung CLX 6260FW

Post by sunlover »

Cannot print double- sided in LM 19.3 using Master PDF Editor nor scan both sides of document with the same app or using gscan2pdf. Able to do both in Windows 10.
Have tried doing same through USB connection as per a previous post but this made no difference.
This is frustrating as I have virtually moved from Win 10 to LM & this seems to be the last stumbling block to doing so.
Would appreciate any work rounds- Bruce

With the device on the network give what you get for

Code: Select all

avahi-browse -rt _ipp._tcp

Code: Select all

avahi-browse -rt _uscan._tcp

Hi Brian, thanks for your response.

Thank you for the output, sunlover.

I forgot to ask whether you can do duplex printing from apps other than Master PDF Editor. You likely will be using the Samsung drivers for printing; let's try something different.

Run the command

Code: Select all

driverless
It should show a line corresponding your printer. The line is a URI (Unified Resource Identifier). Then do

Code: Select all

lpadmin -p PRINTER -E -v URI -m everywhere
Replace PRINTER by any name which you want to give to your print queue and URI by your printer's URI as listed by the driverless command.

Any joy?

The idea I had for testing scanning cannot be implemented because there isn't any _uscan._tcp service on the CLX 6260FW.

Output from "driverless" command below Brian. Tried duplex printing from Libre Office, would not print at all as with trying to print single sheet now from F/fox?
I did install ULD Samsung driver some time ago.

What you substitute for PRINTER is unimportant. I will use 6260. What you substitute for URI is crucial. The command becomes:

Code: Select all

lpadmin -p 6260 -E -v ipp://SEC8425198506AF.local:631/ipp/printer  -m everywhere
Then try printing to 6260.

lpadmin says that it cannot set up a print queue because the URI being used is not known. There is a typo in the URI that you could have discovered yourself by comparing it with the URI given in the outputs of avahi-browse. The correct URI is

Code: Select all

ipp://SEC8425190506AF.local:631/ipp/printer
BTW, presenting information via screenshots is not very convenient in these circumstances. Extracting data from one to copy and paste is error-prone.

Hi Brian,
Ran amended command, maybe I need new glasses, & tried to print to 6260 in Master PDF editor with duplex (long side) option selected. Would only print two pages one sided as before any changes made to printers.
As an exercise I have copied & pasted terminal output as suggested in other posts on the forum bought up with a search.

Code: Select all

bruce@bruce-MS-7982:~$ Test 12345678910

Am always willing to learn with a little patience & guidance.

The 6260 queue does not use ULD, so I suppose we can rule that software out. Please try:

Code: Select all

lp -d 6260 -P "1-5" -o sides=two-sided-long-edge /etc/services

Hi Brian, Ran command (terminal output shown below) , 5 pages, single sided printed off. Have not included these at this time as I thought this was probably a test print.

Code: Select all

bruce@bruce-MS-7982:~$ lp -d 6260 -P "1-5" -o sides=two-sided-long-edge /etc/services
request id is 6260-38 (1 file(s))
bruce@bruce-MS-7982:~$

...5 pages, single sided printed off.
This is becoming more perplexing. The result would indicate a fault with the filtering on your printing system. I have attached a file, out.txt, that I produced on my Mint 19.1 installation. It is two pages with one line per page (to conserve supplies). It is a printer-ready file. That is, all the filtering was done at this end. Send it to your printer with

Code: Select all

lp -d 6260 -o raw -o sides=two-sided-long-edge out.txt
Does this print in duplex?

(out.txt is not a text file but an Apple Raster file, but I needed the .txt extension to be able to attach it).

Same result as previous Brian, printed out 2 single sided pages.
I am still dual booted with Win 10, so if you would like to take a break & think over it for a while is OK with me- Bruce

Thank you for your consideration, Bruce. I am in the process of exhausting my skill set!

We are both using essentially the same set of filters. We print the same file in the same way. Mine is a single duplexed sheet. Yours is not. JFTR, would you post

Code: Select all

lpoptions -p 6260 -l
