    Angry Printer skipping every alternate job

    I've installed the new Canon Selphy 900, using the Selphy 520 drivers (these are are the most stable ones available).

    The problem I have is every alternate print is skipped, and some times the second job is printed before the first one, and the first is never printed!

    I gave the command (from page_log)
    Code:
    Canon-CP900 photobooth 3 [22/Oct/2012:23:30:54 -0400] 1 1 - localhost lion.jpg - -
    Canon-CP900 photobooth 4 [22/Oct/2012:23:31:14 -0400] 1 1 - localhost tiger.jpg - -
    which are two separate files I'm trying to print with a picture of each of the creatures. The printer, just printed tiger.jpg and stopped as if it had only on job and no other files.

    I've attached the printer debug logs to the post, it's a long file, but I'm totally clueless on what could be causing a problem. This is on a fresh install of lubuntu 12.10.

    Code:
    lpstat -o
    WARNING: gnome-keyring::  couldn't connect to: /run/user/photobooth/keyring-wnIiP9/pkcs11: No such file or directory
    Canon-CP900-5           photobooth           0   Tue 23 Oct 2012 12:06:01 AM EDT
    Canon-CP900-6           photobooth           0   Tue 23 Oct 2012 12:06:08 AM EDT
    On more point the WARNING, always keeps popping up.

    Code:
    sudo ls -l /var/spool/cups/

    Any pointers or help to fix this issue will be very useful. Thank you for your help in advance.

    Canon Selphy 900 using gutenprint driver

    I got immersed in reading your compressed error log

    I googled on

    CreateProfile failed: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown:The name org.freedesktop.ColorManager was not provided by any .service files
    and in this thread

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=11929368

    I wondered if post #2 might have any relevance for you

    (Are we to assume you are using the gutenprint driver?)

    I'm using the gutenprint driver, deleting and reinstalling the printer did not help. I ended up rebuilding the system, and still stuck.

    Re: Canon Selphy 900 using gutenprint driver

    Found some more info;

    While the print job was in progress, I got this error message in the syslog.
    Code:
    Oct 24 19:37:24 photobooth kernel: [82850.440782] usblp0: removed
    Found a bug related to this issue;
    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...s/+bug/1001028

    Trying to reinstall cups and see if that resolves the issue. Moving down from 12.10 to 12.04. Might go down all the way to 8.04, if this does not work.

    Canon Selphy 900 using gutenprint driver does not work

    Bump! Any one ? Still stuck..
    I think your question/statement sort of assumes that someone out there is holding a secret answer;

    ....I very much doubt that.......

    Canon do not release a driver for this printer; (there are NO linux drivers for this series of printers............)

    existing drivers (gutenprint) do not fully work; you tell us that; the maintainers of gutenprint would I am sure be happy to work with you; however you need to contact them directly

    http://gimp-print.sourceforge.net/p_Contact_Us.php

    let us know how you get along

    your post prompted me to investigate this class of printers; a couple of reviews recommended the ip100

    http://www.canon.com.sg/business/pro...rs/pixma-ip100

    as being the best photo printer

    and it comes fully supported with linux packages

    for ubuntu, using debian packages.......

    for the ip100 there is the iP100 series IJ Printer Driver Ver. 3.70 for Linux (debian Packagearchive)

    from here

    http://support-asia.canon-asia.com/c...100119002.html

    the driver has an install.sh script

    and comes with both 32bit and 64bit packages that would be identified by the install.sh script

    so I appreciate you helping us with this
