11.5 Printer Assignment issues

These issues are specific to iPrint on Linux.

Printer assignment fails for Linux drivers

Explanation: Uploading a driver to the driver store succeeds but assigning the driver to the printer fails from iManager.
Possible Cause: Verify whether the driver name contains two continuous blank spaces. The following two printers have been found to cause problems:
  • HP LaserJet 9000  postscript 
  • HP LaserJet 9000 MFP  postscript 

NOTE:Note the two continuous blank spaces before the word postscript in the above two examples.

Action: Do not use Firefox to upload the drivers with two continuous blank spaces from a Linux client. Instead, use Internet Explorer from any Windows client to upload and assign the drivers.
