lp -d (printername) (plaintextfilename) says it printed successfully in the logs but nothing printed.

What could be the cause of this?

  • I was able to solve this by installing cups-backend-bjnp

    $ sudo apt-get install cups-backend-bjnp

    I then deleted the printer and re-added it.

    Before I installed that package, it first called the MG2522 a "Generic Text Only Printer", but it would just freeze up when it tried to search for drivers.

    Props to @Niols for his answer here - How to install a Canon PIXMA IP 3300?
