Re: System default printer ignored

Very interesting,

after lpoptions, the Ricoh shows up at the only printer from lpq. And tuoborpint-monitor no longer has the Canon set as the default. And apps now pick the Ricoh as the default.

So that's done it. I don't understand quite why that worked, but it has.

Re: System default printer ignored

just about everything: openoffice, firefox, Lotus Notes, musescore.
Yes I had used the lpadmin command you mentioned. It doesn't alter what apps think is the default.
And Turboprint control show a tick against the canon printer, which I assume means it thinks this is the default.

Re: System default printer ignored

Interesting lpq doesn't list the Ricoh. In fact only the one printer controlled by turboprint is listed. The Printers window (cpus) shows a number of printers connected to localhost, including the Ricoh. And it shows the Ricoh as the default printer. lpadmin -d Ricoh-Aficio-3235C is accepted, howeve...

System default printer ignored

I used Turboprint to manage my canon pixma pro 9000. I also have a Ricoch Afficio as my main office printer, which is set to the system default. However, turboprint insists on overriding the ricoh and making the canon the default. How to I tell turboprint that the system default is a printer it does...

Re: unablke to print to CD

thanks, that suggestion got the cd tray to be recognised. But Libreoffice Draw get's the CD template completely wring. It's as openoffice was a few yeasrs ago when the template had to be embedded in A4. Printing using openoffice works.

Re: PIXMA Pro9000 ink counters

So, how do you calculate the percentage a cartridge is used? That is reported, and if it's approximately meaningful then you must have some information on the total volume of ink and the volume of ink used.

I need to charge for a printing job, so I want to estimate the % ink used per page from the counters. Can someone tell me the ink average count for a full Canon 8 cartridge? >> Or let me put it another way: how does turboprint calculate the base from which to determine the % used for each ink cartri...

print preview

I have Print Preview selected, but I notice that the preview doesn't appear until after the first page of a document has printed, only for the first document to be printed after rebooting.

I'm on Lucid and this applies to printing from PDFs and OOO.

Problem with margins when CD printing to PIXMA Pro9000

I'm trying to print a CD using a Canon PIXNMA Pro9000. I'm using OpenOffice Draw 3.2 on Ubuntu Lucid. I'm finding it very difficult to get predictable positioning of my label on the CD. I'm using a 140mmx140mm page with 10cm boarders all round. The offset for CD/DVD is set to zero and the boarderles...
