i was able to add a printer using either the kdeprint or web but when i try to test print, nothing happens.

i also issue the console command lpstat -p -d and showed that the printer installed is idle and ready for printing.

w8, in the Local Lort Lelection section of the add printer wizard, when i click the port where the printer is detected, the URI box displayed "usb://3745". shouldn't it be /dev/usb... or something? i think this is where im having problem.
