    Default Java/CUPS printing problem in openSUSE 11

    I'm using openproj 1.2 for project management and am unable to print. It looks like there is a problem between java and CUPS. Has anyone encountered this? If so, could you please provide fix?



    Java error received when printing:

    Not sure if this will help but I was having a problem where KDE apps would print but not GTK based one - firefox, gimp, gnucash. I reported a bug but after some experimentation I found that setting up the printer with YAST2 needed some care with a remote printer. I ended up selecting the local CUPS server option and then added my queue - also selected the IPP printer. This made the printer visible in the printers and queues dialog and all was well from there.

    Printing problem seems to only affect Java/Netbeans apps. I think there is a problem with Java and CUPS.

    i have another pc linux with opensuse 10.3, java 1.6 and netbeans 6.1 and cups 1.2.12 and printing work fine. I think the problem is to cups 1.3.7!

    Your mileage may vary...

    I have been trying to solve a similar problem with printing from Gimp. ...and with a recent update to Moz/Firefox 3.0x that application failed to print. The /var/log/cups/error_log contained a nugget of information:

    tcp_wrappers refused connection from, ip= See /etc/hosts.allow and /etc/hosts.deny.

    I modified my hosts.allow file to contain:

    # allow local printing
    lpd: LOCAL
    cupsd: LOCAL

    Restarted the network scripts and cupsd. ...and miracle of miracles, shazaam! The print features were restored to Moz/FF and gimp.

    Good luck.

    i found a solution in this blog:

    Java Printing Fix for Linux with Cups | pikopong

    #append orientation option into printers.conf
    vi /etc/cups/printers.conf
      Option orientation-requested 3
    #restart cups
    rccups restart
