#StackBounty: #printing #linux-mint Printer printing only one blank page Ricoh SP 111

Bounty: 50

Hello all I am using Linux Mint 19.2 based on Ubuntu 18.04. I have two printers:

  1. Ricoh SP111 laser printer
  2. HP Deskjet 1510 scanner come printer ( I use this only as a scanner)

Detail of the problem:

Whenever I install HP Deskjet 1510 along with Ricoh SP111. The Ricoh SP111 start giving only 1 blank page irrespective of the number of pages. If I remove HP Deskjet 1510 and run sudo apt-get update and then update the software. The Ricoh SP111 start giving all the prints okay.

Earlier workaround:

I have posted the problem earlier Dual Printer Problem Mint 19.2

  1. At that time I removed the latest version of HPLIP (HPLIP-3.20.2) and installed HPLIP-3.17.2 from software channel (Synaptic). It did not work. Hence I removed HPLIP-3.17.10 and installed HPLIP-3.20.2 again. I run sudo apt-get update --fix-missing and updated all the software through update manager. This time Ricoh SP111 start giving all the prints okay. The HP Deskjet 1510 also scanning as well through xsane. But during the usual new software installations and updates, I don’t know when and how it happened again Ricoh SP111 giving 1 blank page.
  2. I also observed that during this problem too the Ricoh SP111 giving print sent from firefox though it does not print more than 3 pages. All prints sent from any other application fails.

I am using this driver for Ricoh SP111

Please Help.
