Heh. Wrong mailing list.

(However, if I were you I would try completely disconnecting
everything to the printer, checking the toner cartridge to make sure
there aren't any tabs or flaps that need to be removed, re-inserting
and then re-connect, essentially rebooting the printer, and see if it
shows up in lsusb again.)

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.

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:
