It appears that newer versions of the "file" package break the ability of many Brother printers to print from GUI applications. The solution seems to be to ensure that the "a2ps" package is installed.
+
===Network printers===
 +
For network printers, use {{ic|ipp://'''printer_ip'''/ipp/port1}} as printer address.
 +
For some older printers, this might not work. If not, try {{ic|lpd://'''printer_ip'''/BINARY_P1}} instead.
  
==Canon==
+
Some printers use the socket protocol. For these printers, use {{ic|socket:'''printer_ip''':9100}}.
===MF 4150===
+
For http, use {{ic|http://'''printer_ip'''/POSTSCRIPT_P1}}.
This is required as some Canon printers apparently do not declare their specification correctly for kernel and libusb to recognize them
+
  
* Do NOT blacklist usblp module.
+
===Custom drivers===
  
* Connect the printer
+
Brother provides custom drivers on their website, either in source tarball, rpm, or deb form. [[Packaging Brother printer drivers]] covers creating [[PKGBUILD]]s from the existing RPM packages.
 +
{{Note|The source packages might be a better alternative to the rpm packages, provided they contain all the needed files.}}
  
The printer should now be recognized by the CUPS Add printer dialog. If still having problems, try restarting CUPS.
+
====Manually installing from the RPM packages====
  
* Install UFRII driver ({{AUR|ufr2}} from the [[AUR]] and complete the printer installation.
+
{{Warning|This should ideally be automated in a [[PKGBUILD]]}}
  
===Pixma MP540/MP5**===
+
[[Install]] the {{Pkg|rpmextract}} package, and extract both rpm packages using {{ic|rpmextract.sh}}. Extracting both files will create a var and a usr directory - move the contents of both directories into the corresponding root directories.
To get the printer working you need to:
+
  
* Blacklist '''usblp''' module and reboot.
+
Run the cups wrapper file in {{ic|/usr/local/Brother/cupswrapper}}. This should automatically install and configure your brother printer.
  
* Install {{AUR|cnijfilter-common}} and {{AUR|cnijfilter-mp540}} (or whichever package corresponds to your MP5** model) from the [[AUR]].
+
==Canon==
  
* Those with an MP560 should download {{AUR|lib32-cnijfilter-mp560}} for x86_64 or {{AUR|cnijfilter-mp560}} for i686.
+
{{Style|It would good if the driver table could be removed or somehow merged into the main table}}
  
If it's still not working execute the following command as root:

===Utility functions===
+
Some Canon printers will use a similar setup to the iP4300, so consider modifying the {{AUR|cnijfilter-ip4300}}{{Broken package link|{{aur-mirror|cnijfilter-ip4300}}}} package for other, similar printers.
====escputil====
+
This section explains how to perform some of the utility functions (such as nozzle cleaning) on Epson printers, by using the escputil utility, part of the gutenprint package.
+
  
With newer printers (like the CX3600/CX3650 or D88) you must first "modprobe usblp" to get escputil working. This creates the "/dev/usb/lp0" node (see the "--raw-device" flag below). Afterwards you have to "rmmod usblp", else the printer won't be recognized by CUPS (version 1.4.x). More here: http://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?pid=682455#p682455
+
===CARPS===
  
There is a escputil's man-page provides basic information, but it does not touch on how to identify the printer. There are two parameters that can be used to do so:
+
Some of Canon's printers use Canon's proprietary Canon Advanced Raster Printing System (CARPS) driver.
 +
[http://www.rainbow-software.org/2014/01/23/cups-driver-for-canon-carps-printers/ Rainbow Software] have managed to reverse engineer the CARPS data format and have successfully created a CARPS CUPS driver, which is available as {{AUR|carps-cups}}.
 +
The project's [https://github.com/ondrej-zary/carps-cups GitHub] page includes a list of working printers.
  
* One is {{Ic|--printer}}: it expects the name used to identify the printer when is was configured.
+
===CAPT===
  
* The other is {{Ic|--raw-device}}: this option expects a path beginning with "/dev". If the printer is the only serial printer on the system, "/dev/lp0" should be its device node. For USB printers, it is "/dev/usb/lp0". If having more than one printer, they will have names ending in "lp1", "lp2", etc.
+
See [[Canon CAPT]].
  
On to the maintenance options:
+
==Dell==
* To clean the printer heads:
+
$ escputil -u --clean-head
+
  
* To print the nozzle-check pattern (allows verifying that the previous head cleaning worked, and determining the heads need cleaning):
+
{| class="wikitable"
$ escputil -u --nozzle-check

| Both ''e515dwcupswrapper-3.2.0-1.i386.deb'' and ''e515dwlpr-3.2.0-1.i386.deb'' need to be installed. You could either write a [[PKGBUILD]], use {{AUR|debtap}}, or use {{AUR|dpkg}} (using dpkg is not recommended as the files will not be managed by [[pacman]]). The driver works on both the x86_64 and i386 platforms, but may require [[multilib]].

If wanting to perform an operation that requires two-way communication with a printer, use the "--raw-device" specification and the user must be root or be a member of the group "lp".
+
===Custom drivers===
 +
====Xerox Phaser 6000B====
 +
[[Install]] the [https://github.com/aur-archive/xerox-phaser-6010 xerox-phaser-6010] package (archived from the AUR).
 +
The driver may require older versions of {{Pkg|nettle}} and {{Pkg|gnutls}} to be installed, since the binary blob linked against older versions of the shared libraries provided by those packages. The oldest known-good versions are {{ic|nettle-2.7.1-1}} and {{ic|gnutls-3.3.13-1}}.
  
* The following is an example of getting the printer's internal identification:
+
==Epson==
$ sudo escputil --raw-device=/dev/usb/lp0 --identify
+
  
* To print out the ink levels of the printer:
+
{{AUR|epson-inkjet-printer-escpr}} is a driver for the Epson Inkjet Printer Driver (ESC/P-R) for Linux.
$ sudo escputil --raw-device=/dev/usb/lp0 --ink-level
+
  
====mtink====
+
There is a large selection of printer drivers/filters available in the [[AUR]].
This is a printer status monitor which enables to get the remaining ink quantity, to print test patterns, to reset printer and to clean nozzle. It use an intuitive graphical user interface. Package can be downloaded from [https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?do_Details=1&ID=476&O=0&L=0&C=0&K=mtink&SB=n&SO=a&PP=25&do_MyPackages=0&do_Orphans=0&SeB=nd AUR].

If you have any problems on a 64 system, some other lib32 libraries may be required. These instruction may be useful for other printer working with driver from avasys website.
+
====== HPLIP Driver ======
  
==FX==
+
{{pkg|hplip}} provides drivers for HP DeskJet, OfficeJet, Photosmart, Business Inkjet and some LaserJet printers.
=== C1110 (not model B)===
+
Keep in mind that these directions assume that the printer is connected and listening on the network.
+
  
*Install cpio and rpmunpack to later unpack the package:
+
To run with qt frontend:
  # pacman -S cpio rpmunpack cups ghostscript gsfonts
+
  # hp-setup -u
  
*Get the FX GNU/Linux driver [http://www.fujixeroxprinters.com/downloads/uploaded/Drivers/DocuPrint%20C1110%20C1110B/linux/fxlinuxprint-1.0.1-1.i386.zip here].
+
To run with command line:
 +
# hp-setup -i
  
*Unzip {{ic|fxlinuxprint-1.0.1-1.i386.zip}} to /var/tmp (the directory is not important):
+
To run systray spool manager:
  $ unzip fxlinuxprint-1.0.1-1.i386.zip -d /var/tmp
+
  $ hp-systray
  
*Continue extracting the file:
+
To generate a URI for a given ip address:
  $ cd /var/tmp
+
  # hp-makeuri <ip_address>
$ rpmunpack fxlinuxprint-1.0.1-1.i386.rpm
+
$ gunzip fxlinuxprint-1.0.1-1.cpio.gz
+
  
*Move the cpio DST file (for convenience):
+
PPD files are in {{ic|/usr/share/ppd/HP/}}.
$ mkdir /var/tmp/DST
+
$ mv fxlinuxprint-1.0.1-1.cpio /var/tmp/DST
+
  
*Extract it:
+
For printers that require the proprietary HP plugin (like the Laserjet Pro P1102w or 1020), install the {{AUR|hplip-plugin}} package from [[AUR]].
$ cd /var/tmp/DST
+
$ cpio -id < fxlinuxprint-1.0.1-1.cpio
+
  
*Filter the relevant files:
+
{{Note|
$ cd /var/tmp
+
{{Pkg|hplip}} depends on {{Pkg|foomatic-db-engine}} which prevents the drivers list from appearing when a printer is added to CUPS via the web user interface (following error : "Unable to get list of printer drivers"). Possible workarounds:
$ find /var/tmp/DST -type f |cat -n
+

===LaserJet 1020===
+
The drivers will need to be [http://support.lexmark.com/index?page=driversdownloads downloaded] from Lexmark's website. Preferably, create a package (see [[Creating packages]]) and install it.  Here is a basic [[PKGBUILD]] that still needs work but will give an idea of what is required.
====Installation from AUR====
+
Install the package {{AUR|foo2zjs}} from the [[Arch User Repository|AUR]] and modify the [[PKGBUILD]]. Change the line:
+
./getweb all
+
to
+
./getweb 1020
+
  
If getting errors with incorrect md5sums, the md5sum of {{ic|foo2zjs.tar.gz}} in the PKGBUILD should be changed to match the downloaded driver.
+
{{hc|PKGBUILD|<nowiki>
 +
# Contributor: Todd Partridge (Gen2ly) toddrpartridge (at) yahoo
  
As a last step, add and configure the printer in the CUPS manager. The printer should be recognized automatically, and function for both root and regular users.

====Manual installation====
 
This section details the setup of the HP Laserjet 1020 by manually downloading and compiling the '''foo2zjs''' driver.
 
{{Warning|This section involves installing packages without [[pacman]]. These directions should ideally be automated with a [[PKGBUILD]].}}
 
=====Packages=====
 
Only {{Pkg|CUPS}} and {{Pkg|GhostScript}} are needed to set up the HP Laserjet 1020.
 
# pacman -S cups ghostscript
 
The [http://www.linuxprinting.org/show_printer.cgi?recnum=HP-LaserJet_1020 OpenPrinting database - Printer: HP LaserJet 1020] page outlines the support for this printer.
 
  
The '''foo2zjs''' driver will be installed as outlined on the project page: [http://foo2zjs.rkkda.com/ foo2zjs: a linux printer driver for ZjStream protocol].
+
package() {
 +
  # Extract installer
 +
  sh lexmark-inkjet-08-driver-1.0-1.i386.tar.gz.sh --target Installer-Files
 +
  cd Installer-Files
 +
  mkdir Driver
 +
  tar xvvf instarchive_all --lzma -C Driver/
 +
  cd Driver
 +
  tar xv lexmark-inkjet-08-driver-1.0-1.i386.tar.gz -C $pkgdir
 +
}
 +
</nowiki>}}
  
Firstly, download the driver:
+
Keep in mind you can use the automated installer but doing so will leave the resulting changes untracked. The PPD will be installed into {{ic|/usr/local/lexmark/lxk08/etc/}} or similar, depending on the printer model.
$ wget -O foo2zjs.tar.gz http://foo2zjs.rkkda.com/foo2zjs.tar.gz
+
And unpack it:
+
$ tar zxf foo2zjs.tar.gz
+
$ cd foo2zjs
+
The driver is now compiled:
+
$ make
+
$ ./getweb 1020
+
# make install
+
# make install-hotplug
+
# make cups
+
  
=====Configuration=====
+
==Oki==
The '''usblp''' module is needed to upload the firmware to the printer, but the module must then be removed to allow printing or adding the printer to the system.
+
  
Ensure that the CUPS daemon is running and added to the {{ic|/etc/rc.conf}} file:
+
{| class="wikitable"
# /etc/rc.d/cupsd start
+
! Printer
{{hc|/etc/rc.conf|2=DAEMONS=(... '''cupsd''' crond ...)}}
+
! Driver/filter
 +
! Notes
 +
|-
 +
| C110|| [[CUPS#Foomatic|foomatic]] ||

| MC561|| [[CUPS#Foomatic|foomatic-db-nonfree]] ||
 +
|-
 +
! Printer
 +
! Driver/filter
 +
! Notes
 +
|}
  
Now plug in the USB printer and turn it on. The printer will whirl, pause, then whirl once more as the firmware is uploaded. Now remove the '''usblp''' module:
+
==Samsung==
# rmmod usblp
+
The printer can be added to the system with CUPS http://localhost:631/
+
{{Note|The '''usblp''' module must be removed '''after''' the firmware is loaded to the printer, and '''before''' any printing job is submitted.}}
+
The reason for this has been [http://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?pid=639930#p639930 explained on the forum].
+
  
===Firmware for HPLIP===
+
{{Accuracy|All the cnijfilter drivers appear to be for Canon printers - maybe the cnijfilter comment would be better off in the Canon section?}}
Some printers may appear to have been correctly installed by CUPS, but fail to print.  It may be that the necessary firmware needs to be downloaded by running:
+
# hp-setup -i
+
as root.  This situation has been encountered with the LaserJet 1000 and LaserJet 1005.
+
  
==Printer connected to an Airport Express Station==
+
For printers requiring the ''cnijfilter'' drivers, search for the correct driver [https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?K=cnijfilter in the AUR]
The first step is to scan the Airport Express station. It seems that there are different addresses depending on the model:
+
{{bc|
+
[root@somostation somos]# nmap 192.168.0.4
+

Nmap finished: 1 IP address (1 host up) scanned in 25.815 seconds
+
Once you have downloaded the drivers, execute the driver installer and accept the licence:
}}
+
# cd printer
 +
# ./XeroxPhaser3100.install
 +
Note that the driver is 32 bit, so some 32 bit libraries will be required on an x86_64 system.
  
The Airport station is accessed like an HP JetDirect printer. Note the port of the '''jetdirect''' service, and edit {{ic|printer.conf}}. The '''DeviceURI''' entry should be '''socket://''', followed by your station IP address, a colon, and the '''jetdirect''' port number.
+
For the scanner, create an /etc/sane.d directory if it doesn't already exist, because it's need by the installer:
{{hc|/etc/cups/printer.conf|# Printer configuration file for CUPS v1.2.11
+
# mkdir -p /etc/sane.d
# Written by cupsd on 2007-06-26 00:44
+
Now install the driver:
<Printer LaserSim>
+
# cd scanner/
Info SAMSUNG ML-1510 gdi
+
# ./XeroxPhaser3100sc.install
Location SomoStation
+
Again, on an x86_64 install, 32 bit libraries will be needed.

+
Problems may be resolved by removing foomatic and installing foomatic-db, foomatic-db-engine, foomatic-db-ppd instead.

Printer Driver/filter Notes

Network printers

For network printers, use ipp://printer_ip/ipp/port1 as printer address. For some older printers, this might not work. If not, try lpd://printer_ip/BINARY_P1 instead.

Some printers use the socket protocol. For these printers, use socket:printer_ip:9100. For http, use http://printer_ip/POSTSCRIPT_P1.

Custom drivers

Brother provides custom drivers on their website, either in source tarball, rpm, or deb form. Packaging Brother printer drivers covers creating PKGBUILDs from the existing RPM packages.

Note: The source packages might be a better alternative to the rpm packages, provided they contain all the needed files.

Manually installing from the RPM packages

Warning: This should ideally be automated in a PKGBUILD

Install the rpmextract package, and extract both rpm packages using rpmextract.sh. Extracting both files will create a var and a usr directory - move the contents of both directories into the corresponding root directories.

Run the cups wrapper file in /usr/local/Brother/cupswrapper. This should automatically install and configure your brother printer.

Printer Driver/filter Notes

Some Canon printers will use a similar setup to the iP4300, so consider modifying the cnijfilter-ip4300AUR[broken link: archived in aur-mirror] package for other, similar printers.

CARPS

Some of Canon's printers use Canon's proprietary Canon Advanced Raster Printing System (CARPS) driver. Rainbow Software have managed to reverse engineer the CARPS data format and have successfully created a CARPS CUPS driver, which is available as carps-cupsAUR. The project's GitHub page includes a list of working printers.

Dell

Printer Driver/filter Notes
1250C foo2zjsAUR See http://cybercom.net/~dcoffin/hbpl, the patch has been merged into upstream. The printer may also work with the Xerox Phaser 6000B driver.
E515,

E515dw

Install Dell's driver. Both e515dwcupswrapper-3.2.0-1.i386.deb and e515dwlpr-3.2.0-1.i386.deb need to be installed. You could either write a PKGBUILD, use debtapAUR, or use dpkgAUR (using dpkg is not recommended as the files will not be managed by pacman). The driver works on both the x86_64 and i386 platforms, but may require multilib.
Printer Driver/filter Notes

Custom drivers

Xerox Phaser 6000B

Install the xerox-phaser-6010 package (archived from the AUR). The driver may require older versions of nettle and gnutls to be installed, since the binary blob linked against older versions of the shared libraries provided by those packages. The oldest known-good versions are nettle-2.7.1-1 and gnutls-3.3.13-1.

Epson

epson-inkjet-printer-escprAUR is a driver for the Epson Inkjet Printer Driver (ESC/P-R) for Linux.

There is a large selection of printer drivers/filters available in the AUR.

Utilities

escputil

escputil is part of the gutenprint package, and performs some utility functions on Epson printers such as nozzle cleaning.

mtink

This is a printer status monitor which enables to get the remaining ink quantity, to print test patterns, to reset printer and to clean nozzle. It use an intuitive graphical user interface.

Stylus-toolbox

This is a GUI using escputil and cups drivers. It supports nearly all USB printer of Epson and displays ink quantity, can clean and align print heads and print test patterns.

Custom drivers

Avasys

Warning: This section involves installing packages without pacman. These directions should ideally be automated with a PKGBUILD.

"Source" code of the driver is available on the avasys website, in Japanese, however it includes a 32 bit binary which will cause problem on 64 bit system.

  • Download the source code of the driver.
  • Compile and install the driver.
$ ./configure --prefix=/usr
$ make
# make install

If you have any problems on a 64 system, some other lib32 libraries may be required. Please adjust this page if that is the case.

HPLIP Driver

hplip provides drivers for HP DeskJet, OfficeJet, Photosmart, Business Inkjet and some LaserJet printers.

To run with qt frontend:

# hp-setup -u

To run with command line:

# hp-setup -i

To run systray spool manager:

$ hp-systray

To generate a URI for a given ip address:

# hp-makeuri <ip_address>

PPD files are in /usr/share/ppd/HP/.

For printers that require the proprietary HP plugin (like the Laserjet Pro P1102w or 1020), install the hplip-pluginAUR package from AUR.

Note:

hplip depends on foomatic-db-engine which prevents the drivers list from appearing when a printer is added to CUPS via the web user interface (following error : "Unable to get list of printer drivers"). Possible workarounds:

  • Either: Install hplip first, then retrieve the PPD file that matches your printer from /usr/share/ppd/HP/. Next, remove hplip entirely as well as any unnecessary dependencies. Finally, install the printer manually using the CUPS web UI, selecting the PPD file you retrieved, and then re-install hplip. After a reboot, you should have a fully working printer.
  • Or: Remove hplip, foomatic-db and foomatic-db-engine along with any unnecessary dependencies. Reinstall hplip and restart CUPS. Install your printer using the CUPS web UI, which should now be able to find the drivers automatically. No reboot needed.

Keep in mind you can use the automated installer but doing so will leave the resulting changes untracked. The PPD will be installed into /usr/local/lexmark/lxk08/etc/ or similar, depending on the printer model.

Tango-inaccurate.pngThe factual accuracy of this article or section is disputed.Tango-inaccurate.png

Reason: All the cnijfilter drivers appear to be for Canon printers - maybe the cnijfilter comment would be better off in the Canon section? (Discuss in Talk:CUPS/Printer-specific problems#)

For printers requiring the cnijfilter drivers, search for the correct driver in the AUR

Warning: This section involves installing packages without pacman. These directions should ideally be automated with a PKGBUILD.

Once you have downloaded the drivers, execute the driver installer and accept the licence:

# cd printer
# ./XeroxPhaser3100.install

Note that the driver is 32 bit, so some 32 bit libraries will be required on an x86_64 system.

For the scanner, create an /etc/sane.d directory if it doesn't already exist, because it's need by the installer:

# mkdir -p /etc/sane.d

Now install the driver:

# cd scanner/
# ./XeroxPhaser3100sc.install

Again, on an x86_64 install, 32 bit libraries will be needed.
