Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

Congratulations.    This upgrade seems to have done the job.    I printed the test page with no printer error warning.    I then did a restart and no warning when I did a test page.    So then I pulled the text message I had created before and it too printed with no printer error warning.   Looks good at this point.

Thank you atolboo.    I have some other concerns but won't start them right now.    Will try to make some corrections on my own first.

Have a good day with your family.

Survived the doctor.    New  file created.

robert@robert-pardus ~ $ lp -d mfc-3240c Printertest

robert@robert-pardus ~ $ lp -d mfc-3240c Printertest
request id is mfc-3240c-22 (1 file(s))
robert@robert-pardus ~ $

First print command I had  forgotten to connect the printer.    So I connected the priiter  and  got a typeical Print Error - There was a problem etc.    But the  file printed.

Tried the print command once again.   Same as above.   Print error message followed by a file print.

I hope this is what you  wanted me to do.

This file appears as 'Grub now working.odt'     I have no idea where that %20  comes from when I copied.    Maybe that is the problem for the printer.    Maybe I should 'rename' and try again.    This is the only file I have in Pardus so far.

Yes, my test page  looks just like figure 6, but with CUPS v1.3.x

Off to the doctors now.     Will return to this later today.

Opened Kwrite and added some letters and numbers.

Clicked on File and Print

Blank page - none of what I wrote but did also got the usual error about Print Error as I have reported before.

Question about Activate file then print.    Did I misunderstand what you wanted me to do?

EDIT to add:    While the text did not print there was one long line, across, at the lower margin area.

My oh my, you have really made this so easy.    Thank you.

Things all went well but when I printed from Open Office I still get the error message but the file still prints.

'There was a problem processing the document 'untitled' (job XX)'.

In Systems Settings-Printer Configuration, I no longer get the test boxes.   

Are these iems a problem?

Well, it has happened again.    I thought I had left a post on here but when I come back it is not here.    Maybe I am hitting the wrong button on the bottom.   So here it is again.

(if this one isn't doing the job, I have another idea waiting for the next version.)
^^^^^ this version.

I will be waiting for the newer way to load the printer information.

Sunday, 19 Nov 2010

Startup of Pardus in process.
Printer started and 'Printer Test Page' is produced.   This was ordered yesterday.    It was printed under CUPS v 1.3.x

Next to the 'Printer Configuration Panel'.
Printer model: Brother 3240C CUPS v 1.1
Printer status: Idle - /usr/lib/CUPS/filter/brlpdwrapperMFC3240C failed.

Clicked on 'Change', selected 'Brother', click on 'Forward', scrolled to 'MFC 3240C, click on 'Forward', 'Us the new PPD (Postscript Printer Descriptions) as is' button selected.   Click on 'OK'.    Now back to 'Printer Configuration Panel'.

I no longer get the test page with the buttons to 'Printer Test Page', 'Printer Self Test', etc.

Thanks for the map link.

EDIT TO ADD:   Now in afternoon.    I decided to try printing from Open Office text.   So a few words and some colors then print.    It did print what I had on the screen.    So it is real close to being correct.    Just wondering, based on what I posted earlier if those test operations are really needed.    I did have a warning flashed on my screen but then it printed.    The warning said 'There was a problem processing the document 'untitled' job 10.'

I tried you latest method first.

MFC 3240C

Printer self test:
There was an error during the CUPS operation: 'Client error document format not supported'.

No print.

Then I tried the console with your first method.

MFX 3240C CUPS v1.1
Printer status: Processing

And it never stopped processing and I never got the status and test boxes.

So I then tested with Open Office.

Text document and short statement.    Open Office recognized the printer.    Clicked on print and got no print.    I checked the printer status box and there was a file waiting but it did not go to the printer.
...............

I did not mean to neglect your home.    Sorry, I was just talking about my connection with Germany.    As I remember it your country is just west of Germany.    I would be surprised if my son has not visited there in his European journeys.   Holland has a lot of history about its past and the way it handles the sea.

So thanks for your help so far.   I hope my inputs will help you to understand what is not working correctly.

12  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / Re: Printer = Brother MFC 3240-c on: December 18, 2010, 17:23:19 PM
Thanks for your feedback.    I was hoping it would all bread down to something as simple as you just posted.    Will try it later today.

My grand father was from Germany and came to the US around late 1800's.    He never carried the German language into his family so I know nothing about it.    I think he should have carried more of his heritage with him.

My son learned German in school and has spent many years in Germany.    In fact he is in Germany today.
13  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / Re: Printer = Brother MFC 3240-c on: December 18, 2010, 14:11:46 PM
OK, my first question is this.     What I saw in your response was a lot of writings and posts in the first links, but what to do?    In the next links it is all in German(?) and again what to do?

So I am very confused at this moment.

14  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / Re: Printer = Brother MFC 3240-c on: December 18, 2010, 03:28:52 AM
My apologies.     I thought I had posted a thankyou yesterday but I don't see it tonight.

So once again thank you for your two day effort.    I will certainly take time to read and study what you have posted.    I will also ask for more guidance if needed.    Then with the final solution working I will report success for all to see.

I also added that it may not be immediate as I have some priorities that must be taken care of first.    So I will try to squeeze this effort in as I can.

I also have a big problem that will slow me down a bit.     My eyes are failing.    My left eye sees double and my right eye goes from OK to out of focus.    Sometimes I end up with my face on the screen to read.    It all varies so I have an appointment with an eye surgeon coming soon.   But with Xmas there are so many appointments being scheduled for school kids, and with the office days off, that my schedule is in January.    Except for any possible cancellations where they might call me.

Not begging for sympathy, just stating what is going on right now.

I think growing old is exciting.    I get to meet a lot of nice people.    Nurses and doctors and receptionist and other patients.

Thanks for your effort and I will respond as soon as I can.

Robert

Thanks for your response.    Yes I have been using the System Settings>Printer Configuration.     That was the reason for my question.     If anybody knows of one of the many choices shown for Brother Printers will enable mine I would like to know which one it might be.    There none shown that is near the number of my machine.    Each attempt I make I get warnings about changing all my settings.    Print self test never works.    Very confusing.

Thanks for the links to Brothers download files.    I just need to find which ones to download to work with this program.    There are just two to choose from but I don't know enough right off so I will read up on that first.
