Printer going offline

Hi all,
I have a deskjet 3059A printer. When I try to print, I notice that the printer disables.
I have tailed the error log, but nothing comes up that I can pinpoint...
Any idea?
If you need a log, or a testrun or so, let me know
Thanks a bunch
Melissa
Edit - I think the printer is being fed IPv6 instead...
I use Kernell 4.4 at the moment, 5x gives errors and frequently does not even start up...

Can you give some more information about your system?
inxi -Fzxxxa

Can you test kernel 4.19.xx?

Hi, thanks for the reply :slight_smile:
Do I post the output here?
I dont have 4.19 instralled, I could try 5.4 (which sometimes fails to boot)
Thanks
Melissa

How is the printer connected to the computer?
LAN, USB, WIFI ?

USB...
It's a printer by HP, 3059, the driver calls itsels for 3050...

Can you post the log, when the printer is connected to an USB port ?

It reinstalled itself after I kicked it out. Let me see if I can pick up a log...
I seemed to have printed, though.
Nothing learned :cry:

Are you willing to upgrade to testing?

And you can follow the replies up-thread for symptoms and the kinds of printers affected.

Thankks for the info...I noticed I dont even have hplip installed, makes me wonder now on earth I even got anything on paper...
Let me install it now and see :slight_smile:
Edit - I do have hplip installed (had to...) but I have yet to see what version...maybe it's in this week's update too...
Edit - found it (hehe, pacman -Q hplip did the trick :rofl: ) 1:3.19.21-1...
Edit 3 - seems to have worked (upgrading the hplip), though the DE got stuck, I had to unstick it. It's...something that happens when VLC is working too...seems to hang up the DE as it plays videos...

My Printer went offline since the latest update. My printer is a Brother DCP-T510W.

Any ideas?

Hi, if I recall, I re-installed the whole printer stack. I did that via the web interface ( https://localhost:661 if memory serves ) by uninstalling everything concerning the printer (mind you, I only have one printer, make sure you delete the faulty one...) and reinstalling it.
It seems to work now...
Good luck...
Nothing as frustrating as stuff breaking along the way...
Melissa

Nope. I did as instructed but no result. Still cannot find printer.
