Print problem to HP printer under FC#


I have an annoying problem with printing to a HP printer under FC3. I have all the necessary packages install hpoj etc. When I install the printer with the printer manager it just prints fine. However, at every new login no printing is possible although I seem to find the printer install in three different ways. Printers seems to be okay and I find the expected entries in the printer queues but it just does not print regardless of any operation with the printer manager!
The only way to get the printer to work is to reinstall it.

I did not have this problem neither on FC1 nor on FC2.

On the other hand, xsane always works for scanning.

Probably something really simple...

Cheers, Frank

Did you maybe somehow disable CUPS at startup?

I have the same problem with Suse 9.2 pro. I share an HP 845C between two computers using a USB switch.

I can switch to my XP PC and print, however when I switch back I can't print from my linux PC. This also requires a reinstall of my printer in Linux. Rebooting doesn't help.

Strange this time around the printer continues to work and the "print manager" shows only one entry. Probably in the failing case the CUPS did not come up as suggested in the first reply.

Keep you posted if I find more!

Cheers and Thanks!
