Subject: [9front] Printing configuration
Date: Sun, 05 Jun 2022 17:35:08 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <E450918F7613E5B69D7EB21601266219@chrisfroeschl.de> (raw)

Hello all,

I'm trying to setup printing on my 9front desktop.  I have a Canon
TS6300 at home, which I would like to directly send print requests
from the desktop via USB and preferable wireless network request.

I'm having a hard time setting up my /sys/lib/lp/devices config even
after reading /sys/doc/lp.ps and lp(1) and was hoping for someone with
perhaps a similar requirement and a working config to share.

My current two device setups are probably total bogus, but here we go:

; tail -n2 /sys/lib/lp/devices 
homeTS6300wifi	- tcp!!515	- post+nohead generic generic generic - tcppost -
homeTS6300usb	- /dev/usb/ep13.1/data - - post+nohead generic nospool - - - -

I manage to get following error with the wifi printer:

; lp -dhomeTS6300wifi test.ps 
Jun  5 17:15:15 failed to receive ACK, received <0x1> instead
Jun  5 17:15:15 failed to receive ACK before sending data

The printer itself works of course on other operating systems with
standard manufacturer documentation.
515 seems to be the proper port and gives something back when using

I assume that the printer supports postscript, but I didn't seem to
find a explicit spec mentioning it.  I might be wrong assuming that.
Although plain text alone would already be a blessing.

The wifi printer seems to send something apparently with lpd settings
refering to the log, but nothing really happens:

; tail -n2 /sys/lib/lp/devices 
homeTS6300wifi	- tcp!!515	- post+nohead generic lpdspool lpstat - tcppost -
homeTS6300usb	- /dev/usb/ep13.1/data - - post+nohead generic nospool - - - -
; cat /sys/lib/lp/log/homeTS6300wifi.st 
connecting to tcp!!515
 trying from port 721...connected
: 69.13% sent
: 100.00% sent
11850 bytes sent, status: waiting for end of job

I tried lpd settings because my printer test page (printed out on
through other device) mentions LPD as enabled.  Other settings
mentioned are:

- WSD Printing => enabled
- RAW Printing => enabled
- Bonjour => enabled
- LLMNR => enabled
- SNMP = enabled
- PictBridge Commun. => enable

I hope I provided enough information for someone to perhaps see a weak
point or general advice for my configuration.  Refering me to
additional resources could also help.
