I can print a test page from Cups. But if I print from e.g. Google Chrome, it is not working and Cups will also not know show any new jobs. The printer is on the network. How can I debug this?

  • lpstat -W completed What does this show when you finish printing from google-chrome? – Hunter.S.Thompson Sep 13 '17 at 13:14
  • It won't show up in lpstat -W completed. It will also not print from google-chrome. I think this was not clear. – pfnuesel Sep 13 '17 at 13:57
  • Any other idea how I could understand where the documents get lost? – pfnuesel Sep 13 '17 at 15:46
  • Have you checked the cups log? In /var/log – Hunter.S.Thompson Sep 13 '17 at 15:48
  • The logs show when I remove and add a new printer. They show the test page that I've been printing from Cups. But they don't show anything that I print otherwise. – pfnuesel Sep 13 '17 at 15:52
