CUPS - can't seem to print more than one page

Most of the time, it actually doesn't print anything. There's nothing in the error log. The job simply graduates to finished state without printing. Or some times, if I'm lucky, it'll print the first page, and graduate the job to finish state.

I have a Samsung ML-2010, this is my cups.conf:

Re: CUPS - can't seem to print more than one page

I had this problem with an HP LJ1200 before I started using Gutenprint (and eventually HPLIJ/HPIJS).

Re: CUPS - can't seem to print more than one page

I don't think I have the option to switch to Gutenprint. According to OpenPrinting, the only two drivers my printer supports are gdi and Splix. I'm currently using Splix, will try switching to gdi see if that makes a difference.

Edit
Still doesn't work.

Re: CUPS - can't seem to print more than one page

Bump

I'm thinking I should just downgrade, since cups 1.3.11 wasn't given me problems. However, I need to downgrade heimdal as well. How do I know if it's safe to do it (i.e. no other packages depend on a more recent version of heimdal).

Re: CUPS - can't seem to print more than one page

I am experiencing kind of the same problem with the Samsung-ML1610 and the Samsung BCX-4300. Switching to the gdi driver doesn't solve it.

When printing multiple jobs, the new jobs won't get recognized and are finished immediately. Even though the led of the printer is being busy for a few seconds. When sending the printing command a few times it may just accept one after a few trials. Restarting the printer and cups may help too (but not always).

Re: CUPS - can't seem to print more than one page

I just managed to install the official Samsung driver succesfully from AUR. You can use yaourt (http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Yaourt) to install it:

yaourt -S samsung-unified-driver-printer

It just might solve this problem.

Re: CUPS - can't seem to print more than one page

I've been having the same problem with my Samsung ML-2240.  best guess is that there is either a driver bug, or samsung makes crappy printers smile

Re: CUPS - can't seem to print more than one page

I've solved this issue by installing cups-usblp http://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=98889

Re: CUPS - can't seem to print more than one page

for me using regular cups with (!usblp) and samsung unified driver, ml-1610 seems to print every second job, not really a problem because I print like 20 pages a month. still hmm

try the solution from the comment above. I had the same problem and that was the fix:

pacman -Rd cups
yaourt -S cups-usblp

and do NOT blacklist usblp.

PS: I also updated the wiki to recommend cups-usblp for samsung printers.
