I’ve installed Netrunner 16 on the PC of my wife and on my PC. We’ve the same trouble with remote printing.
NAS with ip 192.168.1.100 and hostname “taschenmaus”
System: Debian Jessie
Printing: cups + turboprint
Standard Printer: tp0
PC of my wife with ip 192.168.1.101 and hostname “gerbil”
System: fresh Netrunner 16
I can see remote printer status “idle” with webinterface localhost:631
NAS is known in /etc/hosts
Remote Printing often fails, the remote turboprint shows status “sleep”
In firefox I see status “connecting” and then “printer is not ready”
During next reboot process of Netrunner the remote printer suddenly starts and finishes the jobs. This is reproducible.
On my PC I’ve the same behavior with Netrunner 16. It seems, that the sleeping printer get no impulse when starting a print job. Only a reboot give remote printer impulse to get ready and print stuff.
With an installed siduction, based on Debian unstable, remote printing still works without any trouble.
Sorry, but this is annoying. Such simple things like remote printing in a Lan with Linux only systems have simply to work.
How can I fix this? Without solid remote printing Netrunner unfortunately is quite useless for us, because all printers are managed with cups + turboprint on our NAS.
