Re: Call for testing : Driverless printing on Zesty

The printer was bought last year.

Sorry for the delay for testing the prints combination.  My family is coming for the new year and I may not have much time for next days.  But I will do it for sure.

Happy Holidays !

This usually already shows that your printer is an IPP printer but does not support driverless (IPP Everywhere or AirPrint) printing.

The Bonjour record does not even have a "pdl=..." field, so it seems to be an older IPP version (1.0 or 1.1) and especially there is no driverless printing. How old is this printer?

gerard@:~$ lpstat -v

Due to the fact that it does not support driverless printing and it even does not tell at all which page description languages (PDL) it supports, cups-browsed is not able to automatically create a print queue for this printer.

The webui says ipp is activated. In fact everything is activated.

No PPD generation obviously.

Thank you very much for testing anyway.
