OK try to limit the output to one job (say 113):
Code: [Select]
sudo cat /var/log/cups/error_log | grep "Job 113"

It's a Samsung CLP-325W wireless printer

I installed the driver from the printer config tool,  there was a choice of 3 drivers but only one would work

According to this:
http://www.openprinting.org/printer/Samsung/Samsung-CLP-325w

you can use the "CLP-320splc.ppd" driver from the older Samsung Unified driver .. with a few modifications.

Dunno if it'll help, but can't hurt to try.

I've attached a pre-modified version of that PPD below.

Also noticed that you use Custom page size (but not properly formed):
Quote
D [26/Jan/2014:13:40:16 +0000] [Job 113] Page size: Custom
D [26/Jan/2014:13:40:16 +0000] [Job 113] Width: , height: , absolute margins: 0, 0, ,
D [26/Jan/2014:13:40:16 +0000] [Job 113] Relative margins: , , ,

So your printer would not know what to do with it.
This could be down to Scribus rather than your printer.

But there is no harm in trying Marks suggestion for a different driver.

I tried Marks driver but the printer didn't work at all, but I maybe should have deleted the printer first and I didn't have a lot of time to spend on it, I've been a bit preoccupied with getting my NAS up and nrunning so this is something I intend coming back to





Many thanks

Ok I deleted the printer and re-installed using Marks driver but I get this error message during the installation process

Quote
Printer 'Samsung-CLP-320-Series' requires the '/usr/lib/cups/filter/pstopxl' program but it is not currently installed.  Please install it before using this printer.

OK, I gather "pstopxl" is the old name for "gstopxl" from the ghostscript-cups package.. so I've replaced the 2 instances of "pstopxl" with "gstopxl" in the attached PPD.



the other option would be to create a symlink called pstopxl that points to gstopxl

it's good to be wrong sometimes

but well done you did it again :)
