I have a very old Samsung SCX-4200 MFP. When I connect it using USB, it become visible in the settings’ “Printers” section, but when I try to print any page nothing happens. In the logs I catch next error message:
cupsd: [Client 56] Returning IPP client-error-document-format-not-supported for Print-Job (ipp://localhost:631/printers/SCX-4200-Series) from localhost. cupsd: REQUEST localhost - - "POST /printers/SCX-4200-Series HTTP/1.1" 200 109224 Print-Job client-error-document-format-not-supported
I tried to add PDD file manually according to this tutorial, but got another error:
gnome-control-c: Error opening file /etc/cups/ppd/SCX-4200-Series.ppd: Permission denied systemd: fprintd.service: Deactivated successfully.
Also system always asks me a root password to configure a printer from settings GUI (not sure if it’s important). Previously I had an Ubuntu and this printer was working without any issues.
My setup: Fedora 37, Gnome.
I will be grateful for your help in solving this issue.
