Network printing works erratically
« on: October 24, 2016, 00:59:54 »
I have the following set up:
Server computer running Open Media Vault with Samsung SCX-4623 connected by USB.
Various networked user computers running variously Windows XP, Windows 7, Linux Mint XFCE and Linux Mint Debian Edition.
All Windows computers can print if I install the Windows Samsung Driver and point them to http://my_server:631/printers/samsung
The Linux Mint XFCE printer prints without trouble.  The Device URI is set the same as the windows printers (http).
I never scan from Windows. Scanning from the Linux Mint XFCE computer is fine. XSANE finds the scanner on the network without trouble. It does list two incidences:
  Samsung Samsung SCX-4623 multi-function peri [net:192.168.1.25:xerox_mfp:libusb:002:004]
  SAMSUNG SCX-4623 Series Scanner [net:192.168.1.25:smfp:SAMSUNG SCX-4623 Series on USB:0]
The former works, the latter does not.

I am now trying to set up the other Linux machine (running LMDE) which is new. I have installed exactly the same set of packages from SULDR as the other linux box. I have added the printer with exactly the same settings. When I print a test page, the printer spools (it starts to roll the drum) but no page is printed. CUPS reports a successful job.
XSANE does not detect the scanner at all.

Any advice?

I checked Samsung's website and saw that the driver version they offer is 1.00.36. So I installed that and successfully printed a page. Now for the scanner...... (xsane is not finding it)

Closing this thread. Will cross-post to the Scanning Thread now that printing seems to be sorted.
