Recently my HP Photosmart 7450 has stopped working. Configuring the printer shows no errors regardless if I use MCC or http://localhost:631
, but nothing gets printed. If I run hp-toolbox
I get this error message:
HP Linux Imaging and Printing System (ver. 0.9.7)
HP Device Manager ver. 6.0

[ERROR]: Unable to connect to HPLIP I/O. Check and make sure HPLIP is running.
Running service hplip restart
as root returns this:
Stopping hpiod: [ OK ]
Stopping hpssd: [FAILED]
Starting hpiod: [ OK ]
Starting hpssd: [ OK ]
and running service hplip restart
is even less surprising:
Stopping CUPS printing system: [ OK ]
Starting CUPS printing system: [ OK ]
My distro is Mandriva Cooker and my kernel version is 2.6.12-3mdk
