Lenny Printing bug with Samsung ML-2010 with Kernel 2.6.21-2-486 #1 Wed Jul 11 03:17:09 UTC 2007 i686
printing job stayed in Kjobviewer
Printing OK with older kernel 2.6.18-4-486 #1 Mon Mar 26 16:39:10 UTC 2007 i686
this Samsung ML-2010 B@W laser did at first work in Lenny, until apt-get dist-upgrade in mid august 2007. The printer was visible, and put the job in kjobviewer and gave an error message trying to shift the job to the Samsung.
Now Lenny cannot even see this usb printer to install it after an apt-get dist-upgrade today.(29/8/07)
The same printer works fine in Debian etch, also works fine in Sidux Gaia.
Same behavior in Kubuntu gutsy tribe5, which must use snapshots of Lenny packages, hence same errors.
Using a specific ppd does not help either, when you could install the printer that was.
Oh an old HP deskjet 895Cxi prints OK, but with a long latency now, so this problem is Samsung Laser specific whatever it is.
I joined the mailing list and got 2 answers very quickly stating there was a Kaffeine problem in Debian.
I thought that Kaffeine, interfering with a printer was a bit on the far side.
However removing Kaffeine, allowed my Samsung ML-2010 to be seen again in KDE print.
It refused to print still, putting the job in Kjobviewer, and only printed on rebooting, a behaviour I had noted before.
The true problem, I believe resides in kernel 2.6.21-2, as everything goes fine with printing, Kaffeine present and all with the older kernel 2.6.18-4-486 #1 Mon Mar 26 16:39:10 UTC 2007 i686 GNU/Linux.
So there is a *bug in the kernels after 2.6.18-4-486 #1* with regard to the Samsung ML-2010 and I hope it can be fixed.
