USB Printer always Stopped, how to autostart
If my USB printer is not on when I print something*, it is marked as "Stopped" in the Print Manager. In order to be able to print I have to go to the "Configure - Printing Manager" and choose "Start Printer".
(*Also sometimes when the computer starts, or if the cable is disconnected)
I have two question:
1) How can I get the printer to automatically start itself in such a situation? That is, like expected, the spooler should just automatically enable the printer should it detect it is now online, and then continue printing.
2) If there is no way, what is the command-line to start a printer? This way I can create a command that is available to users with sudo without a password (the requirement that root needs to start the printer makes this issue extra annoying).
Relevant system details:
Printer: Canon Pixma 3000 (with Canon Pixus3100 driver)
Distro: Mepis 3.3.1 (upgraded to Debian unstable)
NOTE: I have *no* other printing problems.
