hi, been using qubes for a while and have set up multiple printer before mostly dymo. i upgraded to a brother ql1100 and i am trying to connect it but it won’t print anything.
I have a template including all my linux drivers for this specific printer and followed brother instructions off the site and i have a appvm based off this template and i connect the printer via system-config-printer and it shows its connected with a tick. I set my label template up and when i click print it shows the ‘job’ in the corner for a split second and then it dissapears and nothing happens.
I feel i am missing something really simple here and its frustrating the life out of me. I have set previous printers up no problem but this one is really causing me bother
I have the same problem with fedora vm… However I have no problems with debian… But now I need to move everything to a debian vm before I can print anything… I also have the usb qube set up, everything looks and works perfect… I connect the printer to the fedora vm and it shows usb printer connected but nothing ever prints, just shows job pending forever. I have 2 brother printers with the same problem.
Thanks for the suggestion… This is set up as a usb printer. I think the “URI” might be the problem… Brother says " Check if the Device URI of your printer is “usb://Brother/(your printer’s model name)”
If the device URI is different from the example above, please go to “Modify Printer” of your printer to select proper device and driver."
But for some reason the browser is asking me for a user name and password and then telling me I am not authorized to make any changes… I think these changes might be made in the printer gui but I dont remember how to get to it… I will have to think about that…
system-config-printer is the command for the terminal window… Just changed the “Device URI:” Actually I had the option on the left hand side that seemed to match what brother said it should be now its fixed! YEEEHAWL!
Did all that and tried again after reading your reply. Doesn’t work on Qubes 4.2. Printer can only be found under removable drives and media, and the default printer settings give error no printing service available. Thank you anyway.
Too much innovation in Fedora, too much security extremism in Qubes. I’ll have to return to Debian stable. No innovation there.
