    So I will give my lsusb.

    Code:
    lars@lars-desktop:~$ lsusb
    Bus 001 Device 006: ID 0499:1011 Yamaha Corp. P-250
    Bus 001 Device 003: ID 05e3:0606 Genesys Logic, Inc. USB 2.0 Hub / D-Link DUB-H4 USB 2.0 Hub
    Bus 001 Device 002: ID 0bc2:3101 Seagate RSS LLC 
    Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
    Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
    Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
    This is the same with the printer on or off. Strangely it is the only thing that doesn't get recognized. Also it doesn't help to move the printercable to another position, fx. where something else has been recognized. And at the moment it's in the back of the computer, not in a hub (though I've tried that to).


    It's not there. I does get recognized (same cable and everything) in my windows dual-boot.

    Please arepaking. Tell me if you do any progress. And also tell me if you think my case is not related and I'm hijacking your thread.

    Oh and System>Administration>Printing is empty. Very empty.
    Kind of brings us to a dead stop if you are connecting straight to the PC (not a hub) and it is not even showing up under lsusb.

    I'd say run a dmesg | tail, but it seems silly if it is not being detected by lsusb.

    I also read in another thread at one time, there was a conflict issue with the Parallel and USB ports. I bet this is the issue again. It was buried in this mess someplace.

    Just found an awesome non-Ubuntu specific thread for dealing with broken lsusb/CUPS detection issues that might help.

    Code:
    modprobe lp
    echo lp >> /etc/modules
    apt-get remove --purge cupsys
    apt-get install cupsys or apt-get install cupsys cupsys-driver-gutenprint  hplip

    Re: USB printers installation issue on Karmic

    Thanks a lot ctsdownloads. I hope you will follow up again.

    With respect to your last post. Doesn't do anything for me, and lp is already in my /etc/modules and is listed at lsmod, so it is loaded.

    dmesg however returned an interesting result. First dmesg | tail before turning printer on.
    Code:
    lars@lars-desktop:~$ dmesg | tail

    Now I turn the printer on:
    Code:

    Clearly something is going on in the dmesg.
    Sadly lsusb still shows no trace of my printer.
    Code:
    lars@lars-desktop:~$ lsusb
    Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
    Bus 001 Device 004: ID 0499:1011 Yamaha Corp. P-250
    Bus 001 Device 003: ID 05e3:0606 Genesys Logic, Inc. USB 2.0 Hub / D-Link DUB-H4 USB 2.0 Hub
    Bus 001 Device 002: ID 0bc2:3101 Seagate RSS LLC 
    Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
    Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub

    I don't know. What's this line from the first time printer is turned on?
    Code:
    [  711.612639] usbcore: registered new interface driver usblp
    What is usblp, is that the module lp? Oh it's in my lsmod along with lp:
    Code:
    lars@lars-desktop:~$ lsmod |grep lp
    usblp                  15136  0 
    lp                     11908  0 
    parport                40528  3 ppdev,lp,parport_pc
    Hmmm. ctsdownloads? Anyone?

    Do not recall seeing the answer to whether or not you are using a hub or not?

    Re: USB printers installation issue on Karmic

    Well, HAL is definitely recognizing your printer, per...
    Code:
    [  711.612618] usblp0: USB Bidirectional printer dev 2 if 0 alt 0 proto 2 vid 0x04F9 pid 0x0033
    [  711.612639] usbcore: registered new interface driver usblp
    Now, if you go to System > Admin > Printers and click 'New' does CUPS see it?
    I asked that earlier, and you answered. But your answer seemed a bit ambiguous to me.

    (I'm not too concerned with lsusb just yet.)

    To err is human, to forgive is very ... dog-like.

    ctsdownloads, Right now I'm not in a hub.
    I have also tried connecting thru a hub.
    No difference in lsusb.


    thomasaaron, I can't press new. It's greyed out though my printer is on and connected.

    Well that is weird. Right above the new button, try

    Code:
    Server>New>Printer
    from the pull down menu instead.

    Great to know I am not the onlyone experiencing this trouble. In fact, when I did
    lp
    lp: Error - scheduler not responding!
    What is going on with Karmic? Non comparable to Windows 7. Trouble free.
