This queue formerly worked. Don't know what happed.

 

Things I've tried:

 

1) Installed various Xerox Drivers, both with Xerox support and without.

2) Create a queue (Generic Postscript) I have been able to print to the Xerox 7328 from other macintocsh G5s.

3) Ran Disk Utility --> Repair Permissions    & Disk Verify  on the problematic MACINTOSH G5

4) Performed "RESET PRINTING SYSTEM" via the Printer Utility Application   & via the Option key & "+" sign, neither fixed the problem.

5)Created test print queue via the 'lpadmin -

  

I AM CURIOUS IF ANY OF THE "MACINTOSH" GURUS CAN FIGURE THIS OUT.  ME MYSELF, I AM THINKING OF RELOADING IT, BUT WHAT IF THIS HAPPENS AGAIN  ???? 

 

WHOEVER NEEDS A BRAIN TEASER AND IS UP FOR THE QUEST.....I CHALLENGE YOU TO IT !   (YES, I SICK OF THIS PROBLEM AND MY NECK HURTS ;_)

 

 

 

The underlying messages in /var/spool/log/errors.log shows the following;

 

 

I [16/Aug/2013:07:45:45 -0700] Printer sharing is off and there are no jobs pending, will restart on demand. Exiting.

    Mac OS X: About the Reset Printing System feature ...

     

    http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1341?viewlocale=en_US

     

    10.5/10.6/10.7/10.8 instructions...

     

    In System Preferences>Fax & Print, Right click or Control+click on the Printers list Sidebar, choose Reset Printing System.

    if you hold option and click the "-" tab it resets the printing system.

     

    http://www.macosxhints.com/article.php?story=20031215144430486

     

    Safe Boot from the HD, (holding Shift key down at bootup), run Disk Utility in Applications>Utilities, then highlight your drive, click on Repair Permissions.

     

    Any devices that previously appeared in your Printer List and Fax List will need to be added again after resetting the printing system.

    Resetting the printing system in Mac OS X 10.5.x+++

    1. To use the Reset Printing System feature in Mac OS X 10.5.x, follow these steps:
    2. Choose System Preferences from the Apple menu.
    3. Choose Print & Fax from the View menu.
    4. Control-click on list of printers on the left side of the window, then choose "Reset printing system" from the contextual menu. If you don't see a list of printers, Control-click on the text "Click + to add a printer or fax" and select "Reset printing system..."
        
        As an alternative, if you currently have one or more printers listed, you can Option-click the "-" (Remove printer) button.

    Reboot.

    OK, look in this path to see why classes.conf or the cups folder doesn't exist...

     

    In Finder's Menu, select Go menu>Go to Folder, and go to...

     

    /private/etc/cups

     

    Couple of longs shots, but while we're here...

     

    Mac OS X: Cannot print, use Classic, start file sharing, burn discs, or update software if /tmp missing...

     

    http://support.apple.com/kb/TA21161?viewlocale=en_US

     

    To avoid these issues, you guessed it, you shouldn't delete the /tmp symbolic link from the Mac OS X volume.

     

    If /tmp is missing, it's easy to make a new one by following these steps:

     

    Mac OS X 10.3 or later

     

    Recreate the missing /tmp link by using the Disk Utility application to repair permissions on your Mac OS X startup volume.

     

    Also, sometimes in Sys Prefs>Sharing, renameing the Computer without spaces or strange charachters works.

    Hmmm, I don't know why classes.conf isn't there, is this 10.4.11? It is not there in 10.5.8...
