Thank you martyg,

I should mention that the printer is connected to an ARM installation of Arch running on a Pogoplug device.

So I'm not sure how the 32/64-bit issues may relate to this.

Again, my Windows 10 machines can print to this printer without issue. Why do the Linux machines fail to print to it?

This post will give you a sequence of things to check. I always dig out this bookmark whenever I mess with this drive in Linux.

Good Evening,

For some reason, I am unable to print from any of my linux machines (I'm using CUPS) with the resulting .ppd from this package.

The linux machines don't seem to know the documents aren't printing. Even the linux box the printer is connected to (USB) isn't able to print to this printer, although it doesn't complain.

However, my 5 Windows 10 machines print to this printer (http...) using this package's .ppd just fine.

When I modify the printer in the host CUPS setup to use the generic PL6 .ppd, the linux boxes can print to the printer again (including the printer host) and the Windows 10 machines still can print as well.

Does anyone have any ideas as to why this may be happening?

I own a HL2270DW printer and when printing the default CUPS test page, the right margin is 1mm off (see the following ascii art). It's pretty obvious with the test page because of the black frame around the page.

|--7mm--|... Printer test page...|--6mm--|

Anyone have the same problem?

I don't have any offset configured on the printer.

I just created and uploaded a package for the HL-2280DW based on this one. Thank you very much! I'll be maintaining it for the time being. I'll keep track of comments on this package to check if there's something to update in the HL-2280DW one.

Thanks mh00h! You're now the maintainer.

I can help you test and maintain this, as I own this printer.

Sorry for the late AUR4 migration - it looks like I lost all the comments and votes :(

I actually don't own this printer anymore, so if someone else would like to become maintainer, please speak up. I can continue as maintainer for now, but obviously I can only help with packaging issues.
