Hi robertw, 

 

Can you please let us know of the printer model. Also are you adding the driver via CUPS or any other process?

Hi robertw,

 

Unfortunately I didnt have time yet to look at it. As you know the forums depend on availability from community. If this issue is really urgent and you need immediate resolution I would advise you to ring Customer Support to have a quick review of your problem.

 

I will have to test this on a basic ubuntu machine. Likely to install it via CUPS. I will post more when I have done the testing.

Robertw, 

Did you manage to install the package and configure the Xerox Printer Manager?

When you send a print job does the Xerox manager plugin pops-up?

Re: invalid accounting ID - linux

Hi Ruic,

 

thanks for getting back to me,

 

once i installed the driver i opened up the xerox printer manager like so -

 

Queue name – call it whatever

Printer model – Xerox colorQube 8900S

Connection type – tcp/ip (workstation to printer)

Ip/dns – type in the ip

Tick the box – make this my default printer

 

Once installed I open up “queue Preferences” click on the “Configuration “ tab click “Accounting”

 

Accounting system – Xerox standard accounting or auditron

Default User id – typed in a user id I defined on the printer

Default account type - Default group account (I set up a default account id on the printer)

 

When I come to print a job it prints a error message –

 

Xerox colorqube 8900S

Error notice

 

Owner – unknown

Document - /var/spool/cups/d00002-001

Printer – fpbasement

Date – 03/04/13

 

The job was deleted due to invalid accounting id

Re: invalid accounting ID - linux

Hi, 

correct. But when you go File > Print ans send the print job from the application does a xerox printer manager opens? Or the job is send directy to the printer without opening any plugins or windows?
