IP1500 flashes but won't print - Ubuntu Maverick

Postby beenome2 » Wed Jan 12, 2011 6:19 pm


got an issue with a Canon IP1500 with Ubuntu 10-10 and turboprint 2.17-2. When I print a test page, the spooler page opens and says the printing is being done with percentages and all, but at the same time it shows a warning sign that the printer stays idle, the printer's light only flashes a couple of times,but then nothing happens. Bizarre ! What did I do wrong ?

please find out the printer port "URI": TurboPrint Control -> column "URI" (something like tpu://...).

Then try to print a test page from TurboPrint Control -> button "Toolbox":

1. Nozzle check page
2. Test page -> select "Test & Status page"

If both works then

3. print from an application like OpenOffice or Firefox.

If there are problems, please send the log files


to mail at zedonet dot de (replace at with @ and dot with .) and describe what of the three steps worked.
