Thread: Two network printers -- can only print to one.

  1. #1

    Default Two network printers -- can only print to one.


    I have two Xerox printers on my network, one B&W, one color.

    I have a box recently upgraded to 11.1, and fully patched.

    If I go and set up the color printer-- put in the correct ip address for the color printer, select the color xerox printer driver-- everything seems fine. If I attempt to print to the color printer, the request successfully prints on the B&W, even though I haven't set the B&W up.

    If I set up the B&W printer, it prints to the B&W like it is supposed to.

    Any ideas how to go about debugging this?

    Okay, I found /etc/cups/printers.conf and /etc/cups/printers.conf.O, and sure enough, the color printer had the B&W ip address. I switched the ip address, rebooted the box, and we can now print to the color printer.

    I put the correct ip address into the YAST interface when I set the color printer up. Is this a bug I should report somewhere?
