USB Printer Problem "device not accepting new address"
 
I have a Samsung 1430 Laser Printer that I'm trying to get working with Mandrake 9.1. I know this printer works well with Linux because the last install of Mandrake 9.1 worked, but since I reformatted and reinstalled Mandrake it hasn't worked. I don't know if I'm missing a package or what; I went into the install packages and installed anything with "USB" in it. I guess I should mention that I'm using the drivers from Samsung (just like before) with CUPS (which I also used before). I have KDE configured to use CUPS, and it reports the printer as idle. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling Samsung's drivers and configuration utilites and that hasn't helped either. When I try to print something I see it go to the queue, but my printer never even reacts (meaning the "Data" light never blinks, it never makes any noises).

Here what I get when I cat my /var/log/messages:

Apr 8 19:53:34 cdcustom kernel: hub.c: new USB device 00:02.3-1, assigned address 9
Apr 8 19:53:34 cdcustom kernel: usb.c: USB device not accepting new address=9 (error=-110)
Apr 8 19:53:34 cdcustom kernel: hub.c: new USB device 00:02.3-1, assigned address 10
Apr 8 19:53:34 cdcustom kernel: usb.c: USB device not accepting new address=10 (error=-110)

That's the only file I could think of including. If something else would help solve this problem please let me know and I can get it for you.

Thanks in advance to anyone that reads this!

Got It!!!
 
I don't know what the problem was, but it annoyed me enough to start fresh. This time my printer works fine, so I'm not touching it. In fact, I'm afraid to update any printer packages!!! lol Thanks for all the replies :eek:
