Is the paper positioned correctly? Are you out of ink?

Some time ago I had trouble getting my Epson C84 to work with CUPS on SuSE. I had no luck at all working with the system configuration utilities. The printer appeared to be configured correctly. When I sent a print job to the printer it would move the ink cartridge a little bit and then it did nothing. I started to fiddle around using localhost:631. Eventually I got it running this way.

Take a look at /var/log/cups and check if you spot something interesting.

Good luck, man! I'm using an Epson Stylus C86 and everything works well on Slackware 11.0. However, Slackware doesn't recognize my driver, but, I selected the C84 driver and everything works just fine. Perhaps try selecting another driver?

I tried all what you suggested me.
I changed paper, checked ink level and i took a look to cups-log, but i didn't understood very well what happened.

I tried again to print a test page, and these are the steps:

Test page sent; job ID is EPSON-65.

Clicking on JOBS button:

No Active Jobs

Clicking on JOBS COMPLETED i noticed:

EPSON-65 Test Page root 15k cancelled atSat Nov 4 15:03:31 2006

And i don't know why it's been cancelled and who cancelled it.

If i click on RESTART JOB button:

Error:client-error-not-possible

Any ideas?

Try using the web interface to configure CUPS.

http://localhost:631

or

http://127.0.0.1:631

or

http://0.0.0.0:631

You should immediately see a web page. This will provide a way to configure CUPS directly rather than trying to do it from other utilities.

If you don't get a web page when you try to connect then you probably don't have the CUPS server running. Try starting the CUPS server and then see if the printer starts working.
Code:
/etc/init.d/cups start

Ehm!
If you read my first post you'll see I am already using localhost:631 to configure the printer with CUPS.
That is not the problem.

Well excuse me for not rereading all of the posts before making my second suggestion. Your attitude stinks.

Mmmm usb://EPSON/Stylus%20Photo%20R220 are you sure that's ok? Try usb://dev/usb/lp0

By the way, what did you change before it stopped printing?

I remember only the Upgrade to Slackware 11.0

usb://EPSON/Stylus%20Photo%20R220 is set by CUPS when I configure the printer.
