I just got my new Raspberry Pi and wanted to set it up as a printer server. I'm able to add the printer without any problems via the web interface, but I'm not able to print anything. It just seems like the print job is sent to the printer and completed without problems in the web interface but in reality nothing happens. There's also no output in the error log file. But I'm going to tell you what I've done first, maybe that will help with troubleshooting. Please keep in mind that this is my first time using linux and that I'm not a native english speaker
I'm using a Raspberry Pi 2 Model B running Raspian. The printer is a Brother MFC-J615W that is connected via a USB cable. First, I installed CUPS following an online tutorial:
Code: Select all
$ sudo apt-get install cups $ sudo cupsctl --share-printers --remote-printers --remote-admin $ sudo usermod -a -G lpadmin pi
When I searched through this forum, the problem seemed to be similar to this one: viewtopic.php?f=28&t=112756&p=772668&hi ... ng#p772668
Sadly they didn't find a working solution, so I'm asking in a seperate thread.
I hope you'll be able to help me troubleshoot this problem
Thanks in advance,
