Description Xander D Harkness 2005-05-03 11:51:53 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050328 Firefox/1.0.2 Fedora/1.0.2-3

Description of problem:
All packages are latest versions.

The HP 970 deskjet printer is automatically detected and installed when plugged in.  CUPs will queue jobs for it but it will not print.

I can create a new printer and that will also queue jobs but not print.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
cups-1.1.22-0.rc1.9.6:1

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Plug in printer
2. queue print job either through an application or 'lpr file'
3. lpq shows print jobs, nothing is printed
  

Actual Results:  lpq shows job listings
lprm will remove the jobs.

The jobs never print or leave the queue otherwise.

Expected Results:  The jobs would print normally

Comment 4 Tim Waugh 2005-05-05 11:02:10 EDT
The error messages are coming from the kernel.
Comment 5 Xander D Harkness 2005-05-17 19:31:30 EDT
Installed kernel-2.6.9-10.EL and this fixes the problem
Comment 6 Steve 2007-03-19 08:03:33 EDT
i have exactly the same problem here in fedora rawhide with a canon-i865 and
gutenprint drivers, but without errors. cups is accepting jobs but does not print.
