OK, I get this:

Code:
cam@ubuntu:~$ whereis cupsd
cupsd: /usr/sbin/cupsd /usr/share/man/man8/cupsd.8.gz
cam@ubuntu:~$ /usr/sbin/cupsd restart
cupsd: Unknown argument 'restart' - aborting!
Usage: cupsd [-c config-file] [-f] [-F]
cam@ubuntu:~$
The .gz one is something I d/l before I noticed I could get it from Synaptic.

Ok, yes, it worked! Thank you!

Now I'm back to where I was a couple of hours ago. :P

I try to print from OpenOffice. This is what the CUPS administration page tells me:

Quote:
Description: PSC-2175
Location:
Printer State: processing, accepting jobs.
"open print channel failed; will retry in 30 seconds..."
Device URI: hp:/usb/PSC_2170_Series?serial=MY37ND83R073
And nothing happens.

Actually, when looking for detected printers in System/Aministration/Printer I get two detections of the same printer. I have added both now and none of them work. This is the info I get from the web interface of CUPS.

Code:
 	PSC-2170  	HP PSC 2170 Foomatic/hpijs (recommended)  	
		Description: PSC-2170
Location:
Printer State: idle, accepting jobs.
Device URI: usb://Hewlett-Packard/PSC%202170%20Series?serial=MY37ND83R073

Print Test Page Stop Printer Reject Jobs Modify Printer Configure Printer Delete Printer Set As Default
 
	PSC-2175 	HP PSC 2175 Foomatic/hpijs (recommended) 	
		Description: PSC-2175
Location:
Printer State: processing, accepting jobs.
"black pen has low ink"
Device URI: hp:/usb/PSC_2170_Series?serial=MY37ND83R073
I've sent test pages to both of them (the latter one still processing one) and nothing happens.

Well, this would be System/Aministration/Printer, as mentioned, but it doesn't offer enough options. I started out there and then went for the web version because people suggested it'd be easier (or, well: possible) that way. Hmmm, I guess I'll maybe have to wait for some Ubuntu experts to have their go at this problem.

Thanks very much though for your effort!

Actually, both are ready. And I don't know which one is the real one. (Since none of them work.) Do you think the second one is "fake"? The 2175?
