Description of problem:
I'm using the hplip and cups daemons that start at boot.

I have a usb hp printer that I turn on when I want to print something.

Unless the printer has finished turning on by the time I click print, I get nothing printed, i.e. the print spool doesn't seem to work at all.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

1. Need version numbers of the packages.  rpm -q cups hplip
2. Did it work before you installed hplip?
Comment 2 Need Real Name 2005-09-11 06:39:28 EDT
$ rpm -q cups hplip

I don't know whether it worked before I installed hplip.

This is an FC4 bug, don't think it will be fixed.
Comment 4 Tim Waugh 2006-11-17 08:52:31 EST
Are you still using FC4 or have you upgraded since reporting this?
Comment 5 Need Real Name 2006-11-17 08:53:29 EST
I upgraded to FC5 and FC6 (two boxes).
Comment 6 Tim Waugh 2006-11-17 08:54:02 EST
Do you still see the problem on FC5 or FC6?
Comment 7 Need Real Name 2006-11-17 08:56:39 EST
Come to think of it, I have seen it at least once on FC6 (the printer is
normally on), I will reopen the bug and close it if I can't reproduce it.

One command that does not work though is this:
 cat file.txt | lpr
I'll also re-test that.
Comment 8 Need Real Name 2006-11-17 11:43:10 EST
Nope, both work.
