I have a Kyocera Mita FS-1010 printer which, to be honest, never worked really good with Linux. It got a little bit better when i connected it by USB but since about 4 weeks Cups does not show the option to install USB printers any more (see screenshot).

Any ideas?

Installing system-config-printer-udev might help, other than that it would be interesting to see "lsusb" and the last couple of lines (20-30) of "dmesg" if you hotplug your printer.

OK, thank you!

system-config-printer-udev is already installed.

plugging the printer into another usb-port gives these lines with dmesg:

      Code:

O.k., so it's not a native USB printer, but a parallel (IEEE 1284) printer with a IEEE 1284 <--> adaptor. Apparently the Prolific PL2305 adaptor is detected properly, but the system doesn't see the parallel port behind it - which would coincide with http://aptosid.com/index.php?name=PNphpBB2&file=viewtopic&t=1609; the reason for this unfortunate change of behaviour is unfortunately still unknown.

Oh, I did not see this thread though I searched the forum before.

I tried to reinstall it as a serial printer but it did not work.

Your printer is fully supported in Cups, see http://www.openprinting.org/printer/Kyo ... ra-FS-1010 and follow the instructions there. I have adapted the topic title for better search results.
This is definitely a hardware problem, printer/cable/ports should be tested.
Greetings,
Chris

thanks slh, slam. I'm watching closely, as I'm directly interested (see slh's linkabove). In my case harware should be OK since I'm able to test and print on a mac with the very same printer/USB-parallel adapter. I guess patience is what I need. Wink

The usb-parallel adapter/cable issue is a different one, the Cups team is working on it. You might also try to a) remove and re-add the printer via Cups web interface, b) test different drivers there (if offered), c) connect your printer directly to a parallel port with a standard cable.
Greetings,
Chris

@slam: I have been on this page. Unfortunately the link to the instructions is broken: "Printer not found We're sorry, but the printer ID you provided was not found in our database."

To your suggestions:

a. I removed the printer, I even removed cups. The problem is: I cannot re-install it as the USB-printer-option is missing. Re-installing it a serial port printer does not work.

b. -> a.

c. I do not have a parallel port on my computer

Is parallelport the only conection option at the Printer? If it has ethernet, you can specify manual ip and gateway and use in cups manual lpd/lpr service. Another Option is a little parallel/ethernet printserver if only parallel port exists.
Never had Problems with my FS 1020, FS 1030, FS 1800+ Printers connected through Ethernet.

You were right! There is an USB-Port at the printer which works great. Thanks.

Great!

A good idea to check the back of the printer as some models have both a parallel and a USB port.

O.k., now it becomes interesting - so the problems appear to be restricted to IEEE1284 --> USB controllers. Is this specific to "Prolific Technology Inc. - IEEE-1284 Controller" (067b:2305) or are different adaptors (or plain USB printers) affected as well?

slh, unfortunately it is not just this adapter, and not adapters in general, but also standard parallel connected printers. There are related bug reports toward several cups components, here just 2 examples:
http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=542101
http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=560003
Greetings,
