I'm running linux RHEL 7.2 with CUPS 1.6 on a laptop provided by my employer.
At home I have a canon PIXMA MG7550.
I installed the driver from the canon website: cnijfilter2-5.00-1-rpm.tar.gz
Installation went fine and I could define the device in CUPS but it wouldn't print.
Through a support forum I was directed to Turboprint.
I installed the test version and I am willing to buy the license if it works.
I configured the MG7550 and I was able to request the ink levels and print a test page.
However after a very short time the monitor shows: "no connection to the turboprint daemon"
Then I restart the daemon: service tpdaemon restart (as root)
tprintdaemon: no process found
TP-Daemon Version 2.38-1
Debug Level set to 0
TurboPrint daemon restarted
The "no process found" part seems strange????
After restarting I can use TP for a minute or so and then the connection drops again.
Could this be some timeout???
Any hints on how to avoid this?
Contents of turboprint.cfg:
Contents of system.cfg:
the TurboPrint daemon is a component that provides ink status monitoring while the printer is not printing. It is not necessary for printing, only for displaying ink status.
There is a problem with turboprint daemon terminating with network / WiFi connected printers, there is no problem with USB connection.
We are working on this problem and will provide a fix.
I can confirm however that at the time I receive the error printing does not work either. The printout is accepted but disappears somewhere.
I noticed that the deamon remains active and when TP monitor is started a 2nd deamon with the same name becomes active also (with a different PID).
Do you have a view on a possible fix? I can not decide on buying the product if a solution won't be available on short notice..
thanks for your help,
shows that the printer can be reached through the network.
Of course you can also try to print via USB connection.
IP-address is ok.
printing from Windows laptops is ok.
USB is not suiteble since the printer is used by 3 other laptops.
Would an ethernet connection make a difference or is it network connectivity in general that is the problem?
