Toshiba Studio printer fails to print with error: invalidfont








  • Description:
    Trying to print to Toshiba eStudio 4540C multifunction machine (with official TOSHIBA ColorMFP PPD), got the following error:
    ERROR:
    invalidfont
    OFFENDING COMMAND:
    $definefont
    STACK:
    --nostringval--
    /TVZYWM+Ubuntu-Medium
    --nostringval--
    /TVZYWM+Ubuntu-Medium
    --nostringval--
    --nostringval--
    
  • Solution:
    It was caused by the bug in cups-filters package discussed here. The work around is adding an option pdftops-renderer-default=pdftops, simply run the following command as root:
    sudo lpadmin -p TOSHIBA-ColorMFP -o pdftops-renderer-default=pdftops
    Note: you need to replace TOSHIBA-ColorMFP with your toshiba printer's name. To find out your printer's name, run
    lpstat -a
