No printing. foomatic-rip stops with status 3


I have spent days trying to get my printer to work. Finally I uninstalled Cups, Foomatic, GS, and the hpijs packages. I reinstalled them as follows, in order, with no errors:

cups-1.1.23
espgs-8.15.1
foomatic-db-20051121
foomatic-filters-3.0-20051121
foomatic-db-engine-3.0-20051121
foomatic-db-hpijs-1.3.1-20031121
hpijs-2.1.4

I “killall -HUP cups”'d then installed a HP Deskjet printer with the appropriate hpijs/Foomatic driver via the “localhost:361” interface. I then printed a test page. The printer was on. The cables were connected. There was paper in the printer, the printer is fully functional. Nothing happened. I checked and the CUPS manager said that the job was aborted. When I tried to reprint, I got an error: client-error-not-possible.

Looking at the error logs, foomatic-rip always stops with a status 3, whatever that means.

Here is the /var/log/cups/error_log entry:

</pre>


I have an acer aspire laptop with Mandrake 10 and a 2.6.14.2 kernel. Everything else works on the computer. USB printer support is compiled into the kernel. I have a USB flash drive that I can read/write to. I also tried printing with a HP 750xi. Same results. When I connect the printer this is the output from dmesg | tail:

<pre>
usb 3-2: new full speed USB device using ohci_hcd and address 6
drivers/usb/class/usblp.c: usblp0: USB Bidirectional printer dev 6 if 0 alt 0 proto 2 vid 0x03F0 pid 0x7304
</pre?
Someone please help!!!

debug error_log

I changed the loglevel to debug. After readin, I decided to renstall GhostScript. I installed espgs 7.07 from SourceForge.net. I got the exact same results. See below. Hopefully someone'll be able to see what I am doing wrong, and tell me. Thanks!
