Printer Install Crash [SOLVED]

I'm getting the following error when attempting to install a network printer.  This occurs just after it starts searching for drivers.

No ID match for device socket://192.168.1.101:
MFG:Dell;MDL:3130cn Color Laser;CMD:PJL,RASTER,DOWNLOAD,PCLXL,PCL,HBPL,POSTSCRIPT;DES:Dell 3130cn Color Laser;

[xcb] Unknown request in queue while dequeuing

[xcb] Aborting, sorry about that.
python: ../../src/xcb_io.c:179: dequeue_pending_request: Assertion `!xcb_xlib_unknown_req_in_deq' failed.

Any way around this?

Re: Printer Install Crash [SOLVED]

From the messages it seems that there was no matching PPD file found for your printer. Try adding the printer manually, and use the right interface: The built-in CUPS web interface.

Make sure CUPS is running. Make sure you know the root password (not sudo). If in doubt, set a root password using the

sudo passwd

Make sure the 'ghostscript' package is installed.

Go to https://www.openprinting.org/driver/pxlcolor, select your printer from the dropdown and download the PPD file.

Open your browser, and enter the following URL:

localhost:631

When prompted for a password, enter 'root' as the username and provide the root password as the password.

You'll see the CUPS interface. It looks like this:

Go to Administration>>Add printer, and follow the instructions. When prompted, upload the PPD you downloaded before to CUPS. Then, select the default printer configuration (change it later any time) and finish the configuration. Test the printer.


Per aspera ad astra.
