Driver Lexmark CS417dn Laserprinter (SOLVED)
« on: June 17, 2019, 10:23:14 am »
I just bought this Lexmark Laserprinter, because it should work under Ubuntu. I installed the driver I found in Internet: Lexmark-AD2-PPD-Files-1.0-02242017.amd64.deb, but Peppermint 9 doesn't find the printer.
I contacted Lexmark, but they couldn't help me, as it only seemed to work with an older vesrion of Ubunte (Ubuntu 10, they told me, and suggested I try to find some help within this community. So, who can help? Thank you in advance!

Shoulda gone with Samsung for lasers ;)

What do you mean by "Peppermint 9 doesn't find the printer." ?

Thank you for your quick reaction!
When I go to System/Printers/
The Printers -  localhost window shows: There are no printers configuered yet. When I click Add, I do not know how to proceed any further:
Do I need to: enter divice URI? If so, where can I find it?

In Printers, click Add .. then what is listed in the left hand column ?

also, if you go to:
http://localhost:631
in your web browser .. then click the Administration tab .. then click Find New Printers

If asked for a login/password .. they are your Linux ones.

In Printers/Add: Devices: Generic CUPSS-BRF - Serial Port #1  - SerialPort #5 - Enter URI
Network Printer: Find Network Printer via SAMBA -  LPD/LPR Host or Printer - Internet Printing Protocol (https) - Internet Printing Protocol (ipp) - AppSocket/HP JetDirect - Internet Printing Protocol (ipps)

I did try to find the printer through  http://localhost:631
in my web browser .. clicking the Administration tab .. and Find New Printers: no printers found.

If you choose Add Printer (instead of Find New Printer) in the CUPS web interface .. is the printer listed there ?

And were you prompted for your username/password by the CUPS web interface ?

If I choose 'Ad printer', I get: no permission.
I was not  prompted for my username/password by the CUPS web interface when I put 'Find printer'

I used Chromium. I will try it in Firefox right away in the morning. It is almost midnight in Holland. Thank you so much so far!

If I put my username/password, I use to start Peppermint 9, on the CUPS web interface. This,  to ad a printer, that combination is not accepted.
