CUPS 1.2: doesn't actually print
I'm on a complaint roll today.
After upgrading cupsys to 1.2 (Etch), CUPS starts but my Laserjet 1012 is
always "not ready". Yes, it is, Mr. Computer. I can print to it fine from
a Windows box, for instance.
I'm not a newbie, so I thought I'd use the logs to figure out the problem.
Here is the full contents of error_log:
E [09/Jun/2006:13:14:16 -0400] [Job 112] Unable to open USB device "usb:/dev/usb/lp0": Success
E [09/Jun/2006:13:14:16 -0400] PID 14359 (/usr/lib/cups/backend/usb) stopped with status 1!
E [09/Jun/2006:13:14:21 -0400] PID 14358 (/usr/lib/cups/filter/foomatic-rip) stopped with status 9!
You can see how helpful that is.
So I looked at access_log:
localhost - - [09/Jun/2006:13:18:05 -0400] "POST / HTTP/1.1" 200 352 CUPS-Get-Classes successful-ok
localhost - - [09/Jun/2006:13:18:05 -0400] "POST / HTTP/1.1" 200 128 Get-Jobs successful-ok
I'm a developer myself, and I can't imagine writing messages that useless.
So how can I figure out what "not ready" really means, anyway?
