I have searched for a solution on fixing the problem, but nothing seemed to work. I have a Desktop 3740 HP printer hooked up via USB to my pc running Ubuntu 7.10 gutsy. It worked fine at first, but for some reason it just stopped working. When I go to localhost:631, it shows up just fine with the printer there.
I have it networked with my Windows XP laptop and I cannot print from there. In my printer queue, when viewing from my Windows XP laptop, it shows that there are a few paused documents that I cannot get rid of. I tried the windows spool trick without luck. I have also reinstalled cups, readded the printer with no progress. I'm basically stuck and annoyed.
I checked the cups log and saw this:
PID 9779 (/usr/lib/cups/filter/foomatic-rip) stopped with status 3!
E [12/Jan/2008:19:01:55 -0500] [Job 9] Job stopped due to filter errors.
When I go to localhost:631 to try and print a test page, the job is automatically paused. Printer shows that it's idle, published and accepting jobs.
Any help with this would be greatly appreciated!
Oh and I did install the latest hpijs driver.
