saxxonian; it sure looks that way. I count at least 2 instances like yours, where the Parallel/USB adapter setup isn't working. Something happened, since many of us had to do as hubi said and remove/recreate our printers. It leads me to wonder if support for the adapter didn't survive. I wish I had suggestions for you.

dmesg | tail after trying to print a test page says:

does this hint to something?

I will have to do more printing than usual in the next weeks. Unfortunately the problem persists and I am really sick of saving to pdf, restarting the machine, booting into win, print the pdf, restart, boot up aptosid, reopen all applications, go on with the work... it sucks

if it works only in win, install win in virtualbox, let windows announce the printer in network and configure linux to use the winprinter. Might be a workaround to avoid this nasty pdf printing and booting.

Hi,

yesterdays (2011/11/13) d-u gave me new cups-s7uff, so I tried again.
Actually the printer was not recognised, as in the months before. But I found the following page:
http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=511762
where it says:
Hint: Run "cupstestppd /etc/cups/ppd/Farblaser.ppd" and fix any errors.
I replaced Farblaser.ppd by my printer (which is)
HP-LaserJet-4050-Series-.ppd

and deleted the sections that were erroneous due to cupstestppd.

After that it worked. The printer was not recognized but I could enter it manually [with connection:
usb://HP/LaserJet%204050%20Series]

Then it worked. I hope this might help anyone else.
