F17: how do you get a network printer working?

I have a network printer.

I installed the drivers for it. Same ones that worked in F16.

I try adding a printer through the System Settings. Result: Hopeless keeps getting FirewallD errors.

So I Alt-F2 and use system-config-printer.

At least I can add a printer.

I am using socket://192.168.2.180:9100
UPDATE: I also tried lpd://192.168.2.180/binary_p1. It fails as well. These work on F16.

I can ping the printer just fine.

Now comes the good part. NOTHING PRINTS.

CUPS says all print jobs complete. But nothing ever prints on the printer.

So I tried.
systemctl disable cups.service
systemctl stop cups.service
systemctl enable cups.service
systemctl start cups.service
systemctl status cups.service

Nope. Still no good.

Maybe someone can see something in this log.

The ip address: 192.168.2.180 is the printer and it pings just fine.

I just walked over to its console to check its IP and it is correct.

How do you get a network printer working in F17?

---------- Post added at 05:51 PM ---------- Previous post was at 04:16 PM ----------

I gave up on the first printer and tried installing a second network printer (HP).

This time I was able to get it working as LPD.

So I went back to the first printer (a Brother MFC) and I see this in the error_log:

I installed the Brother printer drivers from their website just as I had before with F16.

So I'm wondering if maybe these Brother drivers are not compatible with F17 for some reason.

Re: F17: how do you get a network printer working?

Why don't use try using the web browser to install printers. It usually works without too many problems. System settings printer has acted up in the past for me ...

Open a broswer and go to localhost:631. From the Administration tab, you can add printers without problems. I am using one on socket right now!

Try this!

Re: F17: how do you get a network printer working?

Ok, I think I found the problem.

Brother packages its drivers as i386 RPM packages for Fedora and other rpm distros.

I had installed F17 on a x86_64 machine and when I checked RPM I see this:

Code:
Warning: RPMDB altered outside of yum.
** Found 7 pre-existing rpmdb problem(s), 'yum check' output follows:
mfc665cwcupswrapper-1.0.1-1.i386 has missing requires of libc.so.6
mfc665cwcupswrapper-1.0.1-1.i386 has missing requires of libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.0)
mfc665cwcupswrapper-1.0.1-1.i386 has missing requires of libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.1)
mfc665cwlpr-1.0.1-1.i386 has missing requires of libc.so.6
mfc665cwlpr-1.0.1-1.i386 has missing requires of libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.0)
mfc665cwlpr-1.0.1-1.i386 has missing requires of libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.1)
mfc665cwlpr-1.0.1-1.i386 has missing requires of libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.3)
So it appears that it wants 32-bit libraries.

So what needs to be installed?

Re: F17: how do you get a network printer working?

Do you have glibc.i686 installed?

one helpful command in these cases is yum provides

Code:
yum provides libc.so.6
Loaded plugins: langpacks, presto, refresh-packagekit

glibc-2.15-37.fc17.i686 : The GNU libc libraries
Repo        : fedora
Matched from:
Provides    : libc.so.6

glibc-2.15-37.fc17.i686 : The GNU libc libraries

Firewalld was removed from the release F17 defaults since the gui tool for setting permanent tables didn't work.

Yeah! But setting up printer using that GNOME printer settings GUI still shows that FirewallD message.

Re: F17: how do you get a network printer working?

Hi, I'm new to Linux and Fedora. I was able to get my canon printer working with Fedora 16, but I am having trouble with Fedora 17. I get the same libc.so.6 files missing message, but I have glibc.i686 installed. I think the rpm packages are getting installed in /lib and not /lib64. Could that be the problem? Can anyone give me detailed instructions on how to install the rpm printer files to the correct directory?

This is the message I have been getting:

You are awesome! Thank you! This step worked perfectly on my Fedora 19 machine. Thank you for helping the OP and also for solving my issue as well.
