Re: Status monitor just says switched off -

OK nearly 6 months later and I still have the same issue.
I just tried again. It SAW the printer for the test page to 99% then went OFFLINE/UNPLUGGED.

Using CUPS I can print a test page on the TP printer, THAT SHOWS IN THE MONITOR WINDOW even though it is "OFF".

Re: Status monitor just says switched off -

Thought it might be the fact I was running a newer kernel, switched back to standard but still doesn't install the TPU backend. hairybiker@octo:~$ uname -srv Linux 3.13.0-37-generic #64-Ubuntu SMP Mon Sep 22 21:28:38 UTC 2014 Now my support is running out, and since this is NOT working and hasn't be...

Re: Status monitor just says switched off -

Yes, it started the printer up on a nozzle check.
BUT it didn't actually print a check.

Still showing off in monitor.

Re: Status monitor just says switched off -

There is NO option for "Canon iP4500 ... TP-USB" ONLY the default one, used other and changed to tp-usb:
No print, printer offline still.

Added line USB_MODE=0. No difference.

Epson XP-305 prints multiple blank pages

Just got one of these to try out.
When trying to print a test page, all I get is many many blank pages printed.

Using TP 2.34-1 (registered)
On Linux Mint 17 64bit.
