My printer worked, suddenly it doesn't


Hi all,

My printer EPSON EPL-5700L worked fine two days ago, I could print test pages from:
http://localhost:631/printers
where I have my printer:
Epson EPL-5700L Foomatic/epl5700l (recommended) installed to URI:
Device URI: parallel:/dev/lp0
I could also print doing a:
> lp -dep1 a_ps_file.ps

Now suddenly nothing happens when I try to print, so I turned on cups log mode to debug and checked:
/var/log/cups/
after a restart of cupsd.

When I try to print I can find the following information:

0. From DMESG:
parport0: PC-style at 0x378 (0x778) [PCSPP,TRISTATE]
parport0: irq 7 detected
parport0: Printer, EPSON EPL-5700L
lp0: using parport0 (polling).

1. from the cups web control system:
ep1-46 6.ps troels 113k completed at Thu 09 Sep 2004 04:02:14 PM CEST
ep1-54 ExamProjectApplication.ps troels 19k aborted
ep1-55 Test Page root 15k aborted

so suddenly jobs have been aborted !!

2. /var/log/cups/access.log

Hi,

I have not recompiled the kernel in that time, only added a driver ...

Anycase, how do I check that I have parrallel support ? Doesn't it seem so when DMESG finds "epson" printer on parrallel0 ??
