By following the instructions in https://docs.freebsd.org/en/articles/cups/, I installed print/cups and started the cupsd daemon. However, I noticed that the cupsd process runs as root. Does CUPS really need superuser privileges to print documents? If not, how do I make cupsd run as a less...
Welcome to the forum everyone.
I ran into a problem that unfortunately I can't solve, even though I'm already trying everything.
I looked through the forums but couldn't find a solution.
A FreeBSD 13.2 system operating as a NAS, including printer and scanner sharing.
The network is...
This howto only applies to AMD64 and X86 platform.
I have only installed the driver for the printer in the title on AMD64, But the downloaded package contains ppd files for C3200, C3300, CS330, CX330, MC3200 and MC3300 series and binaries for both AMD64 and X64 so they should probably work too...
Given I have poudriere setup and working how do I get a local copy of cups-lpr? The references that I have found imply that this is part of the cups package, but I do not find it on my system even though cups is installed. I have looked at the options set on the cups port pkg and I do not see...
I'm receiving a MUNBYN ITPP941 label printer next week, and as it turned out, it's one of the most common label printers available globally under at least three different brand names (Beeprt, Rollo, Munbyn).
There is a Linux CUPS driver package available for download...
So print/epson-inkjet-printer-escpr is available as a port, but not print/epson-inkjet-printer-escpr2, which newer Epson printers require.
The current RPM source package from the Epson website: epson-inkjet-printer-escpr2-1.1.32-1lsb3.2.src.rpm
Anyone willing and able to port that one, which...

Desired features are:

Duplex printing with CUPS support
Duplex scanning with SANE support
Laser vs ink not decided yet

I am wondering if it is possible to use a Linux printer driver for CUPS that contains a filter program binary in FreeBSD.
Specifically this is about the MUNBYN ITPP941 label printer for which the Linux CUPS driver can be downloaded here.
That driver consists of a Beeprt.ppd and a...
I did a fresh installation of FreeBSD (FreeBSD 12.2-RELEASE-p6 FreeBSD 12.2-RELEASE-p6 GENERIC amd64). I try to install a printer by the Web interface and it fails:
This site can’t be reached
192.168.1.108 unexpectedly closed the connection.
CUPS's error_log show this:
Postscript (PS) and PCL (Printer Command Language) are printer languages known as Page Description Languages (PDLs) supported by the majority of printers for interpreting and printing jobs. These two PDLs are alternate models developed by Adobe and HP respectively. ASCII is a printer language...
I seem unable to get printing via Cups work.
What I have done so far:
Installed cups after pkg update upgrade.
Set up the printer (same settings as on Linux, where it just works).
Manufacturer-supplied PPD file is installed in the printer config.
I am unable to print, getting the error "cannot...
I just installed FreeBSD:
on an old HP ProBook4530s laptop. I'm running twm, firefox, openoffice and wifimgr. All of that is working great. I connect to the Internet over wireless to a cable modem. If I could just get the printer working I would be set!
I installed cups...
I have recently built a new install of FreeBSD 12.2-RELEASE on my office desktop machine. All has gone well so far. As I mentioned, I am working to build a DE for my wife and the other computo-klutzes in our family so we can all eventually dump Billy Gates' offerings.
The FreeBSD base went...

Hi. I'm pretty new to FreeBSD, and I'm trying to setup a networked Brother HL2280-DW to share it to my iOS devices with AirPrint.
After installing CUPS, it saw the printer right away and I added it as a generic PCL laser printer with the connection lpd://BRW0022585FE5F9/BINARY_P1. When I try...
I have had a very hard time connecting my Canon printer (MF 4150). Tried several things outlined in the official doc, and some online threads.
The printer is connected directly to the desktop which runs Freebsd 11, via USB port.
Here is the output of the dmesg.

Well, here it is not. CUPS web interface is nice, but no locally-attached printer is offered: :(

I am creating this thread because I have a problem printing to a CUPS server installed in a FreeBSD jail and I am not sure if this problem is related to a misconfigured jail and/or misconfigured CUPS server.
The host server (skg) installation is a FreeBSD 11.1-RELEASE.
The jail (fileserver) is...
Is it possible to print from Libreoffice having compiled it without CUPS support?
I went through quite a bit of trouble getting my printer to work with LPD (works flawlessly), and was encouraged to do so because it's is the base system, and can do everything I need it to, etc.
