[SOLVED]Printer disappeared from system - unable to

Postby Myles » Jun 14th, '20, 09:07

Late yesterday afternoon I discovered that my printer had disappeared from my system when I tried to print a document - all it showed was "generic printer" not my Canon ip7200. then I stupidly ran the system update that wiped LO off my system (as it did for others , although mine isn't fixed; I just raised a new topic about that).

When I go into MCC > Hardware to re-add my printer I get a dialogue box stating I am about to install 2 packages:

Code: Select all
"task-printing-server" and "task-printing-hp".
This process fails due to the following:
Code: Select all
some package can't be installed "cups-2.2.11-2.mga7.i586"
I can choose to Abort or continue anyway.
So I abort.

I checked in MCC for the status of cups and found that there are quite a few parts of cups still installed, however I don't know what happened, or how to fix it. Very frustrating.

Anyone have any ideas.

Any help greatly accepted.

As there are quite a few dependencies messed up since your latest updates, it might help if you could post the output as root of

Code: Select all
rpm -qa --last|head -150
journalctl -a|grep -F '[RPM]'|tail -350

Can't tell from the context what triggered this, but seems there was an update for the package cups-filesystem and during that transaction most printing-related packages were removed.

Others have reported a bug against the last cups update, but in their case none of the packages got removed, so that seems to be an issue local to your box.
See https://bugs.mageia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=26770 - in the first comment you can also see how the transaction from the update should look like.

Would be helpful to run journalctl -a and then search for "Jun 12 17:4" and add the logs around that timeframe from your transaction to see what triggered that.

Please also add the output as root of

Code: Select all
urpmq --list-media active --list-url
urpmi task-printing-hp task-printing-server

doktor,

search for "Jun 12 17:4" and add the logs around that timeframe


Is the below what you mean?? (I piped the results of the journalctl -a output to a file and found the same cups erase msgs so I've extracted behind and forward of those erase msgs and uploaded it as a txt file because it was too large)

Continue installation anyway? (Y/n)


Same result as before.

I hope that's what you wanted.

Could I just mention that, yes I have some issues with my system still - it's seems very flaky. Since you helped me a few weeks ago with the video driver issue following a complete re-install of my #7.1 system, I have suffered that 5 or 6 times since (re-boorted & fixes itself); random re-boots, happened 4 or 5 times (happened straight after I logged on this morning!); yesterday I magically lost keyboard access on the Grub boot screen so I have to wait for Mageia to just boot, (but I can't select any other system), BUT I have keyboard access once Mageia is loaded I can type my password and logon! You don't have to deal with these, just pointing out that I have some really weird things going on! Quite apart from my printer and LO disappearing!
Very frustrating!

Well, you're missing the main repositories, you only have the 32bit ones, hence why you cannot install any package:

Core Release
Core Updates

edit doktor5000: for some more explanation, you got the cups-filesystem update because that is a noarch package, which are not architecture-dependent.
Those are mirrored between both 64bit and 32bit repositories, so you could install that. But this new cups-filesystem subpackage also has hard conflicts against cups packages from the previous version,
which you cannot install because you have not configured the repos for those. There's not much that can be done about that, if your repositories are not setup properly.

After I do an install from DVD I remove those because, IIRC, when the system I want to install something it asks for the DVD.

So I added those repositories and re-installed cups and LO - all good.

Now I think I see what happened - the cups update ran, deleted those files but couldn't install the new ones as Ii didn't have the repositories specified. Would that be it?

I'm sorry to once again be such a bother, but I was a bit out of my depth with this at the moment.

doktor, thankyou once again for all your help. You seem to do so much problem solving for everybody, you are a marvel.

Well, those are separate. The repos you're referring to are local repositories pointing to the DVD.
What you removed were the online repositories.

doktor,
Ah, okay, now I see the difference.

But it hasn't caused any issues up till now (since I re-installed the system), so I must just have been lucky so far!

I've changed my re-install doco now so I won't do that again.
