Cups Server Error ‘client-error-not-possible’

ComTech: IT Support Stirling


I came across this little beauty yesterday when trying to install a network printer on an Eeepc 701 8G running Lubuntu (really good distro by the way!!).  The netbook could see the printer but was unable to install the driver.

The steps I took to rectify the problem were:

1. I thought it was a driver issue so I reinstalled the hp linux drivers.  This made no difference.

2. I reinstalled CUPS.  Again this made no difference.

3. I then remembered that the printer was shared through Samba.  I had already installed samba onto the Eeepc but I hadn’t installed smbclient. Doh!!  I installed this and the world is good again.

I hope this helps out someone else.
