Red face printing problem (HP 3920)


dear all...

i've been trying to get my hp deskjet 3920 (USB) print on my slackware 10.2 (no update yet).

i think it was wierd. here's the problem:
i install canon s100sp first, working.. not a big problem. Then i unpluged the s100sp and switch the printer using 3920 using same usb port. Then i go to printing manager in xp, install the neccesary file(HPIJS driver for my 3920 and foomatic). When i try to test print, nothing happen. So i decide to deleted all existing printer and restart the cups.
When i try to add printer again, in local port selection (this is the wierd one) i can't see my 3920 anymore. (i'm really sure it was there before). then i try to plug/unplug the printer and restart the hotplug and cups. nothing happen (even i reboot the machine).
Then i think, maybe it was good idea to use HPLIP. First, i try to installed the packages for slackware. When i try to click HP Device manager.. nothing happen. it's not working (i have installed all requirement for hplip before). this installation make cups server not working.. (it was gone and my rc.local is only containing hplip only)
So.. i decide to uninstall it and make installation from the source.
the installation seems fine. i followed the instruction in the hplip web, (step 15)Enter this command:

Code:
/etc/init.d/hplip restart
i've got this:
Code:
bash-3.00# /etc/init.d/hplip restart
bash: /etc/init.d/hplip: No such file or directory
here is my lsusb:
Code:
bash-3.00# lsusb

Bus 002 Device 002: ID 05e3:0702 Genesys Logic, Inc. USB 2.0 IDE Adapter
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 03f0:7604 Hewlett-Packard
i have this when try to plug and unplug the prnter:
Code:
bash-3.00# tail -f /var/log/messages

try:

/etc/rc.d/cupsd restart

or is it: /etc/rc.d/rc.cupsd restart

also, setup your print by opening your browser and typing http://localhost:631
