I updated CUPS and I cannot print to my USB laser printer. The web

The printer itself works (I plugged it directly into my MacBook

`portupgrade -fR cups`

Are you using the foomatic script? I am, with a PPD from
I am not sure, actually (it was so long ago, I do not remember how I
got it working). I installed hpijs and "Make and Model" mentions
Foomatic/hpijs, so perhaps. I am sorry I could not be of more
assistance with this question.
I'm going to try backing up and blowing away my etc/cups dir, re-
the port, reinstalling foomatic and my ppd, and see if that makes any
difference. I'll post whatever I learn.
Thank you for posting your findings and for your quick reply.
No luck. I basically re-installed everything (including config files and the
foomatic filters) from scratch. I also changed the permissions
on /dev/ulpt0 to be 0664 for root:cups. That prevents the permissions
error, but I still get nothing from the printer. The message that comes up
in the cups web interface when I try to print a test page is:
I did get my other printer (on a different machine) working with cups 1.2.0
by just changing the permissions on the device node. I hadn't ever set this
printer up with cups before today, though. It's using gutenprint.
Check the error log for more verbose messages (located in /var/log/cups/
or from the cups web interface).
From what I've read while trying to solve my failure is that some of
the backends/drivers don't work properly with the new cups. We're
probably dealing with several simultaneous failures that need to be
FWIW, cups is working with an Epson 777 and the gimp-print drivers using
/dev/unlpt0. It seems to work as well as it did before once I got the
permissions issue worked out.
