F25 -> F26 printer problems

Wells, Roger K.
hello,

I use two printers, an HP4630 & Xerox  6655, both on networks.

They have been in use with no issues from F24 upgraded to F25. Now with
F25 upgraded to F26 there are some issues.

The machine is Thinkpad x260, running with Gnome desktop (3.24.2-1).

uname -a: Linux rwells-x260 4.11.11-300.fc26.x86_64 #1 SMP Mon Jul 17
16:32:11 UTC 2017 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

The HP 4630 has been set up using the HP Device Manager which recognizes
it as expected.
No problem printing a test page from within HPDM
However within the "Printers" application available from Gnome "All
Settings"  the 4630 "Printer Details" shows the printer address as
"localhost" (even though Cups shows the correct address) and any attempt
to print from an application, e.g. LibreOffite Writer fails.  The job is
listed as "Stopped" and has to eventually be removed from the queue.
A side note: XSane has no problem using the scanner component of the
same device just as it did before the upgrades.

The Xerox 6655 printer appears with the correct IP address in the "All
Settings/Printers/Printer" dialog and any print job remains in the Job
list as "Stopped" just as in the case of the HP4630. However in this
case the job is sent to the printer.  After it prints it must be
manually removed from the job list.

Anyone else seeing this?
Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Maybe it is related to this bug?

It sure sounds like it.  Thanks.
I'll wait for the next release referenced in the link and let you know.

That was quick.
dnf update qpdf-libs
and
the Xerox printer works as before
I need to wait on the Hp until I get home.
If there is a problem there I will report it otherwise silence.
thanks

dnf downgrade qpdf

It's most probably related to a newly introduced flaw in the pdftopdf
filter.

It has already been fixed in qpdf-libs-6.0.0-7

Allegedly, on or about 11 August 2017, Wells, Roger K. sent:

I'm wondering if now (referring to later messages in the thread) that
you've got printing working again, do you still see erroneous printer
addresses listed?

On my Fedora 26 system, CUPS is stuffing up, and I see that the
information listed about each printer is wrong.  For example. I see
this:

---------------------------+---------
Queue name: steamy
Description: HP LaserJet P3015
Location:  print.lan.example.com (Port: 631)
Make and model: Remote printer: HP LaserJet Series CUPS v1.1
Status: Idle
---------------------------+---------

But "location" should actually be showing the location information that
I've set into CUPs (the name of the room the printer is sitting in),
not the network address of the printer.  What it's doing is the wrong
use of the location field.  Location is human information for users to
be able to locate the right printer to get their prints from.

And the "Make and Model" should really be a description of the printer,
too, not the driver info.  Though that is what the CUPS server (a very
old installation) does say on its own page.

The old CUPS' server page says this:

-------------------------------------
steamy
HP LaserJet Series CUPS v1.1
Description:  HP LaserJet P3015
Location:  dining room
Printer State:  stopped, accepting jobs.
"Unable to locate printer 'steamy' - Unknown host"
Device URI:  socket://steamy
-------------------------------------

The printer *is* switched off, at the moment, and has been off for
sufficient time for my network to abandon it.  It's address is doled
out by the DHCP server, which automatically reprograms my DNS server as
addresses change.  Hence the warning notice.

"steamy" is it's hostname, and what I called the print queue for it.
It got so named because the first time I tried printing with it,
someone had left damp paper in the hopper.  The first test prints came
amount with an amusingly large amount of white smoke, that turned out
to be water vapour.  It looked like the magic puff of smoke you'd see a
conjurer use.

There is no point trying to privately email me, I only get to see
the messages posted to the mailing list.

Next time your service provider asks you to reboot your equipment, ask
them to reboot theirs, first.

Confirming.  I also ran into this problem and ran into this thread.  I
can confirm that the latest qpdf from the repoes does, in fact, fix my
(this) problem with printing to both of my printers.

For me, none of those versions works, up to 6.0.0.10. "Filter failed".
