    Zebra Printer Doesn't Always Print

    Weird issue here. I have a Zebra LP-2844 successfully installed and printing test pages with the EP2 PPD driver. I can also print using the lpr command from the terminal like this:

    Code:
    lpr -P "Zebra" test.txt
    But when I use the print dialog box using something like Gedit or Firefox, the print job just hangs in the queue. Any ideas?

    When checking the CUPS web interface, this is all it says about the queued job, which has been sitting there for a while.

    I'm having a similar problem, still working on the fix. If I find it I'll let you know.

    My specific problem is:
    stopped
    "No pages were found."
    IT's a curious error indeed...

    Re: Zebra Printer Doesn't Always Print

    I just print from the command line. That seems to work. The bug seems to be somewhere in the GUI print dialog.

    I have 12.04 64bit installed.
    Using a Zebra LP2824. glabel gives me the error if I hit print. But if I hit print preview, then print, it'll print. cups reports....

    stopped
    "No pages were found."

    Chromium can print to the printer fine. Firefox results in same error. Somewhere, somebody seemed to mention a privileges error. but that's unconfirmed for this. Going to take some work to try and solve. Need to learn how to generate and find those error reports. ( I know, probably read above. )
