Since the upgrade to cupsys 1.2, I cannot print. lpq reports
the printer as "not ready", and the cupsys web interface
shows it as:
Xerox (Default Printer) "/usr/lib/cups/backend/parallel failed"
Description: GENERIC GDI Printer gdi
Make and Model: Generic GDI Printer Foomatic/gdi
Printer State: stopped, accepting jobs, published.
Device URI: parallel:/dev/lp0
Starting the printer reports success and makes it "idle"; printing
anything fails and sends it back to "stopped".
With 1.2.1-1, I could get the "/usr/lib/cups/backend/parallel failed"
message to change to something like "/dev/lp0: permission denied",
but I can't seem to reproduce this now with 1.2.1-2. This message
made no sense to me, as cupsd runs as root, and so has permissions
to read and write lp0.
Trying to print a test page from the web interface gives me a
Quota limit reached.
message, which makes no sense, as I've never set any quotas.
I've checked that the printer and physical connection to it are
ok by (booting into and) printing from a different OS.
I suspect some of my woes are related to upstream bug #1738
it seems like there is more at stake.
