Printer Enabling Disabled by default


My printer mysteriously doesn't work. I have a HP All-In-One 1310 and openSUSE 12.1 64-bit. When I hit Print, nothhing happens. I pull up YaST Printing, and printing is turned off by default. I enable it, and it works until the moment I do sdomething like cancel a print job on the printer it stops working and the YaST trick fails me. HP-LIP reports the printer is stopped and when I hit start the printer it says "user ls added to ls group" and won't start prrinter. I tried to redo the printer without hplip and it still failed. How can I eliminate this 45-minute printing ordeal? Thanks for reading my question spiced with my ventilation and for providing suggestions.

I have an HP all-in-one and had a similar problem. I wasn't able to print at all though. The printer was turned off and sometimes I could get it turn on but it would not print, not a test page, not nada.

I think what fixed that for me was powering the printer down, unplugging it(and replugging it in of course!).

If you're connected via USB, you could also verify that your USB port is turned on in the system bios or that the USB port is working in general.

Thanks for posting and thanks all.

Be real, be sober.
