HP 2210 USB printer problems in Sid
Sid, latest 2.6.8-1-686 kernel. I went back through the archives and
found where I had asked about getting this printer connected before,
and followed those directions, but it's failing right at the outset.
The hpoj documentation suggests ensuring that the USB drivers are
compiled for earlier kernels, that ohci/uhci be loaded. The 2.6.8
autodetection is loading all those drivers:
usbcore 119012 6 ehci_hcd,usb_storage,usblp,ohci_hcd
usbview displays the printer information just fine, as does KDE
Infocenter. When I pull the cable out of one USB port and stick it in
another since my laptop has 3 to choose from, usbview, Infocenter and
dmesg all show the printer disconnecting and connecting to the
correct new ports. USB thumb-drives and memory-sticks function. By
this I assume that the usb subsystem is working.
However, hpoj simply does not detect the printer.
