What does the webinterface say about the printer?

You can always bump up the log level, restart cups
and have a look at the cups error_log.


Cheers,
Tink

Besides when i restart the computer i see this statement while booting:

Code:
drivers/usb/usblpc.c:usblp0: failed reading printer status.
What does it mean ?

locate cups.conf, find the line
LogLevel xxxx
and change xxx to debug

Restart: service cups restart (or similar).
