openSuSE 10.3 and Deskjet 710c


Hi,
after two years using SuSE 10.0, I have now installed from scratch a SuSE 10.3 and now I'm not able to print on my old HP Deskjet 710c (with SuSE 10.0 I have had no problems).

I have tried to boot with Kubuntu 7.10 (live) and I have printed a test page without problems.


In Yast this printer is correctly recognised and configured.

"lpstat -t" output :

desktop:/home/ciro # lpstat -t
scheduler is running
system default destination: deskjet710c
device for deskjet710c: parallel:/dev/lp0
deskjet710c accepting requests since Thu Mar 20 21:25:41 2008
printer deskjet710c is idle. enabled since Thu Mar 20 21:25:41 2008


If I try to print something, "lpstat -t" output is :

desktop:/home/ciro # lpstat -t
scheduler is running
system default destination: deskjet710c
device for deskjet710c: parallel:/dev/lp0
deskjet710c accepting requests since Thu Mar 20 21:25:41 2008
printer deskjet710c is idle. enabled since Thu Mar 20 21:25:41 2008
/usr/lib/cups/filter/foomatic-rip failed
deskjet710c-40 ciro 131072 Thu Mar 20 21:27:07 2008


And if I remove the job :

desktop:/home/ciro # lpstat -t
scheduler is running
system default destination: deskjet710c
device for deskjet710c: parallel:/dev/lp0
deskjet710c accepting requests since Thu Mar 20 21:25:41 2008
printer deskjet710c disabled since Thu Mar 20 21:27:09 2008 -
reason unknown


Foomatic-rip failed... is there anybody out there able to help me in solving this strange problem ?

Thank you in advance, Ciro.

Use a browser. In the URL bar, enter 'http://localhost:631' to get into the cups program. If your printer shows up, select it and try to enable it from there.

I've already tried this but I have had no results.
It is still disabled and in error.

I've also tried to download the ppd file from linuxprinting.org (http://www.linuxprinting.org/show_pr...P-DeskJet_710C) but the result is the same :-(
