[Bug 1500636] Re: commands passed to cups fail. File missing


Paul, which printer are you using? Does it actually support the
functionality you are requesting? The "Print Self Test Page" is intended
for printers which have a built in self test page (usually to discover
clogged nozzles) and the driver is supposed to send a special code
sequence to the printer to make the printer print this test page (not
send a test page from the computer to the printer).  "Clean Heads" is
supposed to tell the printer to run its internal cleaning cycle.

Unfortunately, the buttons sometimes appear in the Properties dialog of
system-config-printer if the printer does not have the mentioned
functionality, for example with the virtual "PDF" printer which gets
created when installing the cups-pdf package (there are really no print
heads to clean).

Or are you developing printer maintenance support for your Kodak driver?

  commands passed to cups fail. File missing

Status in system-config-printer package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  xubuntu 15.04  64 bit
  system-config-printer 1.5.6

  when I click the button "Print self test page", I expect the printer to produce a self test page
  instead I get error "client-error-bad-request" and no self test page.
  the cups error log has the entry
  Print-Job client-error-bad-request: No file in print request.

  Note that I can get the printer to generate the self test page by
  printing a command file from terminal.

  So it seems that system-config-printer is not providing the command
  file, or not providing the command filename to cups?
