Description Hans de Goede 2007-07-18 10:33:49 EDT
After updating to the latest rawhide yesterday my printer stopped working.

Downgrading to hplip + hpijs + libsane-hpaio from F-7 updates, fixes this.

I've also tried to change the DeviceURI from:
hp:/usb/psc_1300_series?serial=MY38O1F0XF9F
to:
hal:///org/freedesktop/Hal/devices/usb_device_3f0_3b11_MY38O1F0XF9F_if1_printer_MY38O1F0XF9F

As a new "dynamic" printer was added to my cups config using this as DeviceURI,
but that didn't help either.

My printer is a HP PSC 1350 connected through USB, with the rawhide hplip+hpijs,
hp-toolbox still saw the printer fine if run as root, but printing didn't work,
ps aux revealed hanging (sleeping) hpijs and ghostscript processes.

I will happily do more testing, I like the idea of getting rid if the hplip
daemons, but sofar that doesn't seem to work for me.

This is caused by udev not making /dev/bus/usb nodes as far as I can tell.

I can confirm that hplip-2.7.6-9.fc8 fixes this, closing.
