Khawaja Sahib i have read it, Install and configure CUPS successfully.
I have add a printer (HP Laserjet 1020) through the web interface (http://172.16.5.1:631). Share it through samba.
also add that printer at Client side. Printer status is ready, when i sent a print to that printer it shows in the printer Queue, but doesn't print it ...

i have checked /var/log/cups/error_log
when i send a Test print from Cups web interface then this error comes in error_log.

E [17/Jul/2007:01:24:25 -0700] PID 12217 (/usr/lib/cups/filter/foomatic-rip) stopped with status 22!

Dear hrchaudhry,
Salam,

Reinstall printer driver. If it will not work then try to re-install perl package from package mananger.

Best Regards.

hey, maybe he could recompile his kernel, too.


why should anyone have to reinstall the perl package for cups?
