    • Communication failure on adding printer in CUPS

      Hi there,

      I had to reformat the SD cart for the umpteenth time since OMV on RPi is so sensitive to power outages, and wanted to add my printer to it. However, it still ends in an unhelpful "communication failure" in the web GUI. It is directly connected to the RPi, no USB hub here.

      I don't have the option of selecting "Generic" or "Unknown" printer in order to manually select the driver.

      When I was trying to add it, Messages logged this, which seems unhelpful:

      How would I know what is going wrong with CUPS on OMV?
    • This isn't an OMV issue. It is a CUPS driver issue. You might try these drivers.
