OOPS! I apologize to everyone on this list for not compressing my error_log file and wasting your time and bandwidth downloading it.

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

Doing a `dmesg | grep ulpt0`, I get

The printer itself works (I plugged it directly into my MacBook
and it
printed fine). To ensure it wasn't an awkward build error, I issued a

`portupgrade -fR cups`

and rebuilt it and everything it is dependent upon. Does anyone
else have
any ideas? I am running an early 6.1-STABLE (FreeBSD dell.home.iq

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:

"/usr/local/libexec/cups/backend/usb failed"

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.

After playing with the permissions on ulpt, I can print a test page, though
half of it comes out after I manually feed my printer.

After that half-printed page, anything I try to print after will get me a "USB
port busy; will retry in 30 seconds..." message and it never prints.
My system essentially does the same thing (the 30 second message that is). After changing my LogLevel and killing and resubmitting a test page, here is my error_log file. Does anyone else have any idea what I can try next? Everyone on this list has been wonderful with this thread. Thanks again.
