My company has a lot of Ubuntu 12.04 desktops and a new Xerox ColorQube 8900S networked printer.
Using the .ppd file from Xerox I can print to the printer fine, unless XSA accounting is turned on. At this point no jobs are accepted, getting a "the job was deleted due to invalid accounting IDs" error printed out.
I have tried to alter the ppd to include the accounting credentials, but to no avail.
I am not well versed in postscript, or .ppd authoring, so I'm stabbing in the dark with scraps of info from Xerox's site and other forums.
I've added this
*% Generic Accounting *JCLOpenUI *JCLAccounting/Accounting: PickOne *OrderDependency: 10.1 JCLSetup *JCLAccounting *DefaultJCLAccounting: XSAGroup *JCLAccounting False/Off: "" *JCLAccounting try1/Try 1: "@PJL COMMENT OID_ATT_ACCOUNTING_INFORMATION <22>0301|0421000<22>;<0A>" *JCLAccounting XSAGroup/XSA Group Based Accounting: "@PJL COMMENT OID_ATT_ACCOUNTING_INFORMATION_AVP <22>XRX_USERID,0301<22>;<0A>@PJL COMMENT OID_ATT_ACCOUNTING_INFORMATION_AVP <22>XRX_GROUPACCT,1000<22>;<0A>" *JCLCloseUI: *JCLAccounting
And installing it in CUPS gives me a new JCL tab in the "Set Printing Defaults" bit. The "Try 1" line is supposed to work - I took this direct from Xerox for this machine. The "XSAGroup" line is from advice on older printers. the 0301 is my user account (PIN) and the 1000 is the group account. The |042 is the required separator.
I've tried ipp://126.96.36.199/ipp and socket://188.8.131.52:9100 - I think both 'work' in terms of talking to the device but both result in the same error.
Can anyone with expertise in .ppd files or Xerox printers help me figure out how to get the userId/accountId successfully submitted to the printer?
