Re: cups yet again
I have had what seems to be the same printer problem you describe, ever
since I installed Debian Etch in February 2007 on my new computer with
an amd64 type processor. My printer is an HP Deskpro 500, and the
computer has a Asus p5b mainboard with Intel E6300 processor.
>From time to time I have looked into this problem and finally today
solved it after reading this report of Bug #38805 in Debian.
I checked my bios setup and under Parellel Port Mode found four choices.
Normal, Bi-directional, EPP and ECP. I had the problem with it set at
ECP but when I choose Normal, the printer works.
Hope this fixes your problem as well,
