I'm trying to add a printer through the Terminal using lpadmin, and it absolutely refuses to work. The printer adds just fine, everything looks perfect from what I can see, but any attempt to print results in a "Printer did not respond" error.
Here's the line I'm using to add the printer:
lpadmin -p _1BIT_16x09 -D 1BIT_16x09 -L "Export" -o printer-is-shared=false -E -v lpd://10.96.99.60/1BIT_16X09 -P ~/PPDs/_1BIT_16x09.ppd
The reason the -p name has a _ in front of it is because if I add it normally, it adds this, I'm assuming because the name starts with a number. I have crafted it to create the printer to appear exactly the same way within the cups web interface and the
If I add the printer using the above command (which doesn't work), this is what I get in
<Printer _1BIT_16x09> UUID urn:uuid:13a13ddb-3110-37b0-7aab-96bae9e30955 Info 1BIT_16x09 Location Export MakeModel Agfa ApogeeX DeviceURI lpd://10.96.99.60/1BIT_16X09 State Stopped StateMessage The printer did not respond.

If I add it normally through the GUI (which does work), this is what I get:
<Printer _1BIT_16x09> UUID urn:uuid:c5565ce1-256d-3d66-4fb8-74fde3242cc5 Info 1BIT_16x09 Location Export MakeModel Agfa ApogeeX DeviceURI lpd://10.96.99.60/1BIT_16X09 State Idle StateTime 1464904755 ConfigTime 1464904755 Type 8450124 Accepting Yes Shared No JobSheets none none QuotaPeriod 0 PageLimit 0 KLimit 0 OpPolicy default ErrorPolicy stop-printer </Printer>
As far as I can tell, aside from the UUID they are identical, but one works and the other doesn't. It's driving me bonkers. Any ideas?
