Newbie with printing issues
I just purchased a Panasonic KX-MB 781 and connected it to my ( Ubuntu 8.10) machine but it will not print anything unless I make it print a test page from the printer console itself. It is connected to the computer via a usb cable. The copy function works, the fax works, or at least it dials out and sends tone. It just will not print.
If I open printer property from the admin directory and look at settings tab I see Device URI: usb://Panasonic/KX-MB781
If I attempt to print a test page from here I get this error message:
There was an error during CUPS operation: 'client error document format not supported'
Please assist me in getting this thing to print properly.
Here is the KX-MB781.ppd file found in the etc/cups/ppd directory
