I'm having a problem printing a photo via commandline, using CUPS. Im using Mac(tried on Mountain Lion and Mavericks) and Canon Selphy CP900 photo printer. I have the correct drivers.
From the command line, here is my printer info:
$ lpstat -d
system default destination: Canon_CP900
copies=1 device-uri=usb://Canon/CP900?serial=C412070200000609 finishings=3 job-hold-until=no-hold job-priority=50 job-sheets=none,none marker-change-time=0 number-up=1 printer-commands=none printer-info='Canon CP900' printer-is-accepting-jobs=true printer-is-shared=false printer-location=ibomac printer-make-and-model='Canon CP900' printer-state=3 printer-state-change-time=1385005687 printer-state-reasons=none printer-type=2134028 printer-uri-supported=ipp://localhost:631/printers/Canon_CP900
$ lpoptions -l
PageSize/Page Size: *Postcard(4x6in) CP_L_size CP_C_size Custom.WIDTHxHEIGHT
If I view the photo.jpg via Preview app, it lets me print it without problem. here is the screenshot.
Now if try it via commandline like this:
$ lp -o landscape -o fit-to-page -o media=Custom.4x6in photo.jpg
request id is Canon_CP900-18 (1 file(s))
It gets accepted and queued but I get the error:
My suspicion is because in the System Preferences | Printers Scanners, the settings doesnt have the 4x6 size in the list :
So what I did was, I opened Firefox browser, went to page setup, and added a custom size paper thru this dialog box:
I named it "Postcard".
So once I have that addition, going back to Printer Scanners settings, it now lists "Postcard" as one of the custom sizes.
I've tried the commandline print command again but I got the same error. I wasnt expecting Mac to be this hard when it comes to printing (or is it my sucky printer driver?). Pls help.
I want this commanline to work because I want to automate it with my custom program. I use this CUPS documentation as reference.
Somebody help pls? :)
