Installing networked HP wireless M1213MFP printer via samba from kubuntu

Asked by S.S.Mani on 2014-08-05

My dualboot KUBUNTU system is able to share files with networked computers, thanks to help I got from this column.

The networked printer though appears under printer, but when I give a test page for printing it says rendering completed:
But it is not printing and the status messgae is 'Filter failed.'

When I give a configure command from the printer screen, under driver it says, Current - HP Laserjet proffessional m1213 MFP, hpcus 3.14.3, requires proprietary plugin.

Even if provide the original printer cd it is of no use. But i do not know whether the cd contans a driver for Linux or not.

Please help me get over this configurauon issue.

Thanks in advance

What is the output of:

lsb_release -a; uname -a; dpkg -l | grep hplip

Thanks

You are not connecting to the networked printer via Samba, this has nothing to do with Samba.

thank you actionparsnip.

this is what i got

lsb_release -a; uname -a; dpkg -l | grep hplip
No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID: Ubuntu
Description: Ubuntu 14.04.1 LTS
Release: 14.04
Codename: trusty

ii hplip 3.14.3-0ubuntu3.2 i386 HP Linux Printing and Imaging System (HPLIP)
ii hplip-data 3.14.3-0ubuntu3.2 all HP Linux Printing and Imaging - data files

Thanks again for your time

(hp lip alone appears in red colour in both lines)

In a terminal, run:

wget http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/hplip/hplip-3.14.6.run
chmod +x ./hplip-3.14.6.run
./hplip-3.14.6.run

It will update HPLIP to 3.14.6 and may help

i will check for printer working and come back again.

Thanks a lot for the guidance

S.S.Mani (airomatic) said : #5

Right now when i give a print command it is giving errors only. i will see if i can understand anything it says and come back tomorrow again.

From an initial inspection/understanding it looks as if fax has been installed as it says it is sending a fax but askd for no number for fax sending etc.

Regards

mani

S.S.Mani (airomatic) said : #6

At the right side bottom HP logo has got added.

But including my earlier installations, 3 printers and 1 fax are showing up if I go to printer link.

Since I am having problems even now, but as many new files have been downloaded now, can I simply remove all 3 +1 the printers/fax installed and try to newly search/install a network printer?

If my question does not make sense, please advice me is there anything else I can do to proceed further?

Thanks once again

Mani

S.S.Mani (airomatic) said : #7

Wired, not wireless.

 I am sorry there is a fundamental mistake in my question.

 I don't know whether this mistake might be responsible still for my problems!

I used the trouble shooting guide as follows, with results appearing correctyly as suggested in it

hp-check -t

Any suggestion please. i have reinstalled the printer as per your suggestion a few times but the result stays the same

thank you

S.S.Mani (airomatic) said : #9

With my understanding, i am failing in installing some plugin that is needed, though it says plug in installed successfully.

Following is the error message. Any help please?

Bus::open: Can not get ibus-daemon's address.

Thank you, at last the printer is printing. Though I had to install it many times. Definitely your directions helped me.
