I'm trying to use my printer (an OKI C530dn) with my freshly-installed FreeBSD laptop. I am using CUPS for this, and I have set it up correctly. However, it's not working at all.
When I opened the CUPS web interface, I found the following error message:

Would like to install LaserGRBL on FreeBSD 13.1 so that I can use it along with my 3D printer Ender-3 with 4.2.7 board.

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...
Was not able to find it in the discussions. I am planning to find a laser-printer so I can ditch those inkjets I have. I only print some 10 pages a year or so.
Are there any printers with good support for FreeBSD?
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.

The network is...
Well, I did it. I got CUPS working with my network Brother mono laser. It wasn't easy, so I took detailed notes and I've posted them here for any fellow sufferers to use:

I am trying to port a 3D printer firmware / daemon called Klipper to run on FreeBSD. So far it all went well until it wanted to <linux/can.h>
I am running out of places to look for that file. I don't see it anywhere in the standard libraries. Is there canbus support in FreeBSD? If so, where can...
In freebsd 13.1 with kde plasma5, a print command (no printer attached, the command is to print to a pdf) brings up the print to a pdf window without delay, but it takes a bit of time to load the preview and process print command. I found this kde thread that indicates that says
I have a LaserJet 200 series HP printer. I print through cups and hplip now, but I noticed my printer has an embedded webserver. It got me thinking... Is there a way to disable the cups daemon, and add the printer directly through the wireless network (or USB) and print that way?
Cause: CUPS was configured to use IPv4 addresses. LPD was configured to use domain names. A change to the printer addresses and to DNS allowed LPD to work and broke CUPS.
Solution: Reconfigure printers in CUPS to use IPP to printer domain names.
I am seeing this in lpstat -p -d -R:
I do not know if this is the correct place to ask but it seems to me to be a port issue.
Using the CUPS web interface I some time previously configured my desktop workstation to use a Lexmark MS711dn printer over the network. This printer shows as currently using the Lexmark MS710 series as...
Hopefully this will be useful for someone else with a Lexmark printer. I thought I had established a network connection with my printer, but in fact I was still using the USB connection. The working configuration for me in my case was to use jetdirect:
I'm trying to make my new printer Epson L1210 working under FreeBSD (TrueNAS). It works fine under Linux (Fedora 35). I was following this guide https://www.freshports.org/print/epson-inkjet-printer-escpr but `lpinfo -v` returns list without my printer. Printer is connected via USB. I...

I know there are proprietary Linux drivers and software for the HP Envy Pro 6000 multifunctional prnter and scanner. I did not have any luck in macking the drivers working for Linux, and I was thinking if anyone has successfully used such a printer with FreeBSD.
My security e-mail contained the following this morning (addresses hidden):

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...
