Fedora Core 3 and HP Deskjet 6122
Hello, I am having trouble printing with Fedora Core 3 and an HP Deskjet 6122 usb printer. I'm trying to set the queue type device as /dev/usb/lp0 instead of the default /dev/lp0 and I get this error:

'/dev/usb/lp0' does not exist, or is not writable.

i have no idea what to do.

Could it really be /dev/bus/usb/XXX/lp0 instead????

Check; ls -al /dev/bus/usb

XXX == the usb port number, since my laptop has three usb ports I have the three ports; 001, 002 and 003

CUPS is installed. I tried adding the printer with CUPS instead of the fedora print manager, selecting USB printer #1. It still wont print, giving the error message "printer not connected" The problem isn't so much with CUPS or the driver, but with USB connectivity i believe.

ls -al /dev/bus/usb

gives no such file or directory.

ls -al /dev

doesnt seem to show usb.

the chipset drivers seem to be installed however.

Thank you!

I installed HPLIP as well, running hp setup gives the error "no devices found" Is USB just not enabled for some reason?

oh my goat

can u disable that selinux moron ?

temporary turn off
# setenforce 0

if ok usb work after proceed that command then better u permanent turn off by editing this file

Permanent turn off
edit /etc/sysconfig/selinux

# This file controls the state of SELinux on the system.
# SELINUX= can take one of these three values:
# enforcing - SELinux security policy is enforced.
# permissive - SELinux prints warnings instead of enforcing.
# disabled - No SELinux policy is loaded.
# SELINUXTYPE= type of policy in use. Possible values are:
# targeted - Only targeted network daemons are protected.
# strict - Full SELinux protection.


ps : i disable this selinux during o/s instalation :)

hope work for u
