Perhaps this is more of a usb question than a cups question, but I wasn't quite sure where to turn on this one. About a month or so ago, I ran out of toner for my Samsung ML-1520. Finally about two weeks ago, I got a new toner cartridge. But when I installed it, I was left with both the Online/Error and the Toner Save leds are both glowing green.
Using lp and the cgi test page button, I am unable to get a job to print. I purge the stuck jobs, restart the cupsys server and still nothing. I used cat file.ps > /dev/usb/lp0, which is the port recorded in /etc/printers.conf as the one which used to work. I get a no such device error. I crawl under the workbench again, check the physical connections. They all seem to be ok. But lsusb returns:
hesco at marcus2:~$ lsusb
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
without identifying the printer.
Can anyone please advise me how I might trouble shoot this and get this brand new printer back up and working?
