Add local printer and share it create default class

then on remote host add new ipp printer and set this url :


ERROR : State : stopped "Filter failed"

"Filter failed"

curl url/.txt | lp

sudo apt-get install ghostscript foomatic-db  cups-filters


Occurred after added printer on kde, then went back to cups web ui that located remote printer and it worked….

For reference:

Cannot process "<STDIN>": Unknown filetype.

The problem is on the client not the print server, make sure this client has the cups files It worked once I copied the pdf file to the print server and printed it using lp

sudo /etc/init.d/cups restart
