View Full Version : Not Talking To Printer.....

I've got two printers in my printer management area, one Kodak AIO and a Canon MF3111. The Canon is my primary concern, and both are inactive and I cannot get them to print anything.

I get to CUPS 1.5.4 and this is the report I see for my Canon MF2111:

Description: Canon MF3110
Location: Local Printer
Driver: Canon 50i - CUPS+Gutenprint v5.2.9 (color, 2-sided printing)
Connection: usb://Canon/MF3110?serial=255272100080&interface=1
Defaults: job-sheets=none, none media=na_letter_8.5x11in sides=one-sided

I go to Puppy Setup, click on the PRINTER, and eventually get to Printer Management which takes me to a web site (I think) and see this:

Showing 3 of 3 printers.

...and clicking on the name of the CANON, which appears to also be a link, after I hit the PRINT button, I get this report.....

"Unable to open print file: No such file or directory"

However, no test page was printed, in spite of the multiple info cards that appear, show the command and data being sent and disappear.

Nothing. Nothing at all. :badpc:
