Printer only prints once, then reboot needed
I've got an HP Laserjet 3020 (multifunction) printer to setup under
linux. I run Debian Sarge. The printer is fully supported
I've got the following packages installed: (all stable versions)
My printer is hooked up via USB.
I setup the printer under cups (web interface). CUPS sees the
printer on the USB bus. I locate my specific printer type (3020),
and install that. Test page prints fine.
If I try to print (say from Openoffice) after this, the job sits in the
queue, with the status "Processing..." Restarting the cups and/or hp
daemons does not do anything. If I reboot, when the system comes back
online and the hp/cups daemons load, the job prints.
I can always print my first print job after rebooting. After this,
nothing I've been able to do will get the printer to print, short of
rebooting. Jobs just sit in the queue until the next reboot. The cups
web interface shows that the printer is "processing, accepting jobs"
when I try to print the 2nd and all subsequent jobs.
Any ideas on where to look to resolve this issue? I'm happy to provide any more info that someone might need.
