System freezing when plugging in USB printer
I asked this question in another thread, but it was at the bottom and I wasn't getting any responses, so I thought I'd try again with a new post.
I've set up Linux for almost everything I need to use on a regular basis except for printing. I originally had some success using CUPS to set it up and print a test page, but I wasn't able to print from the command line or programs so I gave up for a while. Now I've started trying to get it to work again, but now every time I plug in the USB cable from the printer the entire system freezes. The mouse and keyboard stop taking input, the current program stops functioning, and neither Ctrl+Alt+F1 or Ctrl+Alt+Backspace do anything. Does anyone have any ideas why this is happening? The printer is an Epson Stylus Color 740 if that has anything do with it.
