Printer works on Peppermint 9, not on Peppermint 10 (SOLVED)
« on: September 21, 2019, 03:23:43 pm »
Printer works on Peppermint 9, not on Pepper4mint 10, although I get the meddage: Printer installed, does not show up under Printers.
It is about the Lexmark CS 417 dn: Driver  to be found on:
https://www.freeprinterdriverdownload.org/lexmark-cs417dn-printer-driver-download-for-windows-10-8-7-server-linux-mac/

Does it show up in the CUPS web interface
http://localhost:631/admin
if you click "Find New Printers" ?

Is this a network printer?

n/m

I see that last time the problem was a "defective cable",e.g. a printer cable  ;)

Had to be a while abroad. Just back and installed Peppermint 10 anew.(this time verified) and again the printer driver won't work. Does work under windows and still works under Peppermint 9 on another laptop.

Why not install Peppermint 9, then follow this tutorial to upgrade PM9 --> PM10 but without the newer kernel and xorg stack from the hwe-18.04 (hardware enablement stack) .. which is likely where the problem lies.
https://forum.peppermintos.com/index.php/topic,8442.msg86655.html#msg86655

Basically you'd end up with Peppermint 10, but with Peppermint 9's kernel and xorg stack (ie. the kernel and xorg stack from the original 18.04 which both PM9 and PM10 are based on instead of the updated ones from 19.04).

I am happy with this proposal, as I can use it on two other laptops running on Peppermint 9.
Thank you.
