Thread: Cups OpenSUSE 11 print to OpenSUSE 10.3

  1. #1

    Unhappy Cups OpenSUSE 11 print to OpenSUSE 10.3

    Yesterday I've upgraded one of my two desktops to OpenSUSE 11. Today I wanted to finish things up by installing my shared printer. I followed the steps from Swerdna: Linux Printer Sharing: Suse/openSUSE 10.x IPP Print Server for Linux & Windows Clients

    I do get my printer installed, but I fail to print. I get the following message when I try to send a test page
    Code:
    Print file was not accepted (Unsupported format 'application/octet-stream'!)!
    • Is it possible that OpenSUSE 11 can't print to an OpenSUSE 10.3 box?

    • What does the message imply (wasn't able to find anything descent on the Net)?
    • How to solve the matter

    are you trying to print across a network from an openSUSE 11.1 to a
    printer hanging off an openSUSE 10.3 machine?

    can the 10.3 machine print the same document? can networked windo$
    machines print the same document?

    do you plan to upgrade that 10.3 machine to 11.x when it is no longer
    supported with security updates, on the last day of THIS month?

    you might wanna consider upgrading now...it might be the fastest
    solution...(but, i don't know that for sure....there may be other
    stuff going on in your network)

    are you trying to print across a network from an openSUSE 11.1 to a
    printer hanging off an openSUSE 10.3 machine?
    yes

    the new 11.1 (x86_64 fresh install) replaces an old 10.3 machine that used to print OK to the printer on my main (10.3 32bit) server

    can the 10.3 machine print the same document? can networked windo$
    machines print the same document?
    yes (but its semi-permanent offline now), yes

    do you plan to upgrade that 10.3 machine to 11.x when it is no longer
    supported with security updates, on the last day of THIS month?
    yes, but hadn't realised the deadline was quite so close. Trouble is I NEED the other machine until I can finish configuring the new 11.1 machine.

    you might wanna consider upgrading now...it might be the fastest
    solution...(but, i don't know that for sure....there may be other
    stuff going on in your network)
    agreed, will probably start by physically moving the printers over tonight....

    for the record - I've also tried swerdna's CUPs howto page (an excellent resource), turned off firewall to prove that's not at fault..and tried (I think) just about every incantation of IPP, HTTP, etc etc. no luck!

    I CAN log into the remote CUPS server with a browser and then see the printers, jobs etc, but the local CUPS client fails to see anything across the network.

    However, I hesitate to commit to my new server if I'm going to have no remote printing....
    ... even if anyone can confirm if this is a known problem - it'd help.
