I had it all set up: Brother HL-5370DW laser printer, connected via ethernet to our router, and my Dell Inspiron 1525, running Ubuntu 11.04 32-bit, also connected to the same router.
It worked fine, until the printer began to give an error sheet when I tried printing a document:
So, I unplugged the printer, and replugged it. I then deleted the printer from the device list on my Ubuntu Printer panel, and attempted to add it back in. Thought I'd "freshen everything up".Code:ERROR NAME; undefined COMMAND; Q OPERAND STACK;
Well, now I can't find the printer on the network!!
I entered the IP address for the router (192.168.1.1). When I use my browser to access the router, it lists an ethernet device which I believe is the printer, at 192.168.1.45. If I enter that number, the "New Printer" dialog still can't find my Brother printer.
Also - I couldn't access the CUPS server using the web browser, as I read about elsewhere. At http://localhost:631. So I stopped and restarted CUPS (the printer server in Ubuntu), thinking that might help:
That still doesn't let me access the CUPS server.Code:sudo stop cups sudo start cups
It's been a few months since I set the printer up and now I don't remember how I got it going the first time. What am I doing wrong at this step of the dialog box??
I don't think this is about drivers - this is about how to even recognize the existence of the printer on the network.
