Description Matthias 2007-03-06 09:31:15 UTC
Distribution: Opensuse 10.2
Hardware Environment: normal x86 PC (Asus A7V880 Motherboard), Kyocera FS-600
Printer, Sitecom CN-103 USB to Printer Cable Adapter (product home page:
http://www.sitecom.com/product.php?productname=USB+to+printer+cable+%96+1.8m&productcode=CN-103&productid=30&subgroupid=20
)
Software Environment: CUPS 1.2.7, hpijs 1.7.1, vanilla kernel provided in the
opensuse 10.2 repositories

Problem Description: 
When I plug in the adapter, it is being detected and the usblp kernel module is
loaded. hwinfo --usb says that it found a "Prolific IEEE-1284 Controller", so
everything looks good.
The printer works fine on the "real" parallel port, but it doesn't with the USB
Adapter. When i try to print a test page, i first have to wait for a few minutes
 and then only the top 15% or so of the page will actually be printed (the rest
is left blank). 

I have also tried this with the Sidux Live CD (2.6.20 kernel), but it behaves in
exactly the same way.

Comment 2 Natalie Protasevich 2007-06-13 23:59:13 UTC
Could you please try:
latest vanilla kernel (2.6.22-rc4)
raising debug level on the system (dmesg -n 7) and compiling the kernel with USB debug.
Can you also check if any messages in the /var/log/messages or dmesg and attach those (both while you connect the printer and when you start printing).
Thanks.
Comment 3 Adrian Bunk 2007-09-06 13:50:33 UTC
Please reopen this bug if:
- it is still present with kernel 2.6.22 and
- you can provide the requested information.
