hmm, there's really just 'Filter failed' without any context, strange
Yea that's what I thought. Nothing to go on. I wonder if my Kernel version has something to do with this Currently running 4.4.0-0.rc6.git1.2.fc24.x86_64.
What 'journalctl' command line did you use? Just 'journalctl -u cups'?
FWIW, I've updated the wiki page because CUPS_JOB_ID is no longer used for the journal metadata; it's now JID.
Apparently The Printer was on it's last breath, after the successful test it died completely. Closing as it's most likely a hardware issue.
