Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 13681
USB printer communication shaky
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:56 EDT
When printing a page on a USB printer, the job often stops somewhere in the
job (e.g. after half a page). When using the same printer with a parallell
port, the jobs goes through. Communication problems?
This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Winston Release-Candidate #1
Does it stop altogether? With the USB in 2.4.0-testxx I was seeing occasional
long delays with USB, which seemed to go away with test5. Perhaps there are
some backported fixes we need?
Yes, it stops altogether. Please check for important fixes in test5 (there are
some wrt. USB storage as well, which I would like backported... possibly more)
Is this with ohci, uhci or usb-uhci by the way? I don't know the USB code very
well so I'm not sure which changes we want..
Printing works fine with a USB-to-parallell-port converter, BTW - but not with
the native USB driver.
Does 2.2.16-18 make things any better?
yes, it works fine now.
