    Printing problem


    Hi folks,

    HP Deskjet 5740 (USB printer)
    Cups-1.1.23
    BLFS 6.1

    I have cups installed and running
    # /etc/rc.d/init.d/cups status
    Code:
    cupsd is running with Process ID(s) 3334.
    I also have the printer setup with "http://localhost:631/admin"

    Description: HP Deskjet 5740
    Location: localhost
    Printer State: idle, accepting jobs.
    Device URI: usb://5740?serial=MY4B5131V9049M (here looks a little bid strange)

    But the printer can't print. Ran "Print Test Page" resulting in "Error: client-error-not-possible" indicated.

    Please advise how to fix the problem. TIA

    B.R.

    Have you tried looking in /var/log/cups for a better error output?

    I can't figure out what does it mean.

    That seems just to be the browser calling for the files for the CUPS admin thingie. Do you not have a /var/log/cups/error_log

    Do you have the right drivers installed?
